NCR (Blockbuster Express) sold to RedBox

submitted on February 6, 2012 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
NCR, which operates your Blockbuster Express kiosks, has entered into an agreement to sell its kiosks and other assets to Redbox. Until the transaction is completed (we anticipate in the third quarter of 2012), you will continue to enjoy the convenience, choice, and value you're used to from BLOCKBUSTER Express. Until the sale is completed, we will continue to run the business as we have been, focused on bringing you the latest New Release movies with most titles only $2 for the first night. You'll also notice that we've increased our In-Stock Guarantee value so you will now enjoy a movie night on us with a value of up to $3 if we don't have the New Release movie you want in stock.

    It was sure to happen some day and the process has gradually begun. From what I received in my email was a letter from the GM of blockbuster stating the obvious.



    Letter from the General Manager
     
    Dear Valued Customer,
     
    NCR, which operates your Blockbuster Express kiosks, has entered into an agreement to sell its kiosks and other assets to Redbox. Until the transaction is completed (we anticipate in the third quarter of 2012), you will continue to enjoy the convenience, choice, and value you're used to from BLOCKBUSTER Express. Until the sale is completed, we will continue to run the business as we have been, focused on bringing you the latest New Release movies with most titles only $2 for the first night. You'll also notice that we've increased our In-Stock Guarantee value so you will now enjoy a movie night on us with a value of up to $3 if we don't have the New Release movie you want in stock.
     
    As a reminder, we still have 100s of great movies available at $1 and additional nights of all movies are still only $1, all part of preserving an exceptional value for an affordable night of entertainment.
     
    We'll continue to provide you with information on any changes that result from this recent announcement but for now we just wanted to say thanks for being our customer.



    Guess the time has come to watch out for yet another impending bankruptcy filing from a famous media merchant. Neutral

      Good question. The sale won't be complete until third quarter 2012.
      Maybe you can use the codes up by then, or hopefully they might still honor them after that.
