    I did my netflix though (darn, I can't remember!! Maybe QuickRewards), but Blockbusters is cheaper and after a couple months with Netflix I cancelled and then did blockbuster through my points for 250 points.
    It's 4:20 somewhere!

    Was researching this a few weeks ago (these may have changed since then so double-check):

    Creations: $12
    (chubby)Wallet: $18
    Freeride: $11.32 (worth of points)
    Giving2Gether.org: $9
    NetFlip: $10
    PCH and SRR: $10.67 (worth of points)
    QuickRewards: $12
    QuizPoints: $4
    SearchCactus: $14

    MyPoints and Memolink have changed sites since I started working on it, but at the time, MP paid $4.17 worth of points and ML paid $10.17 worth.

    HTH,
    Becky
    (also considering Netflix)

    Just so you know, Netflix limits your rentals to about two per week after a while, we used to get 6+ a week (we are on the three out at a time plan) but they now only let us get, if we are lucky, two a week. Then they say they are shipping that day, then it always becomes the next day ofter that, etc.

    We drop off the DVDs at the exact post office where they process them, we make a special trip, but they don't "recieve" them until about four days later!!!! Yeah, right. Their computer is programmed not to "get them" so that you don't get them sent back out to you. When we returned a duplicate DVD that they sent because one came later and they did not have to ship a next DVD to us, they "got" that one in a couple of hours after we returned it, not FOUR days like the ones that they have to send new rentals for!!!!

    I have sent numerous emails and finally talked to a person, and I got them to give me one month free and then I am switching over to Blockbuster. The customer service cannot change the company policy. Netflix says they don't limit your rentals, but you don't belive it. At first they took one day to get our returns, then two, then, three, now four. It is a huge ripoff because they keep telling me that the oldest customers, and the ones that return them the fastest, are the last ones to get returns. If you don't hardly ever return DVD and keep them a long time, or are brand new, you will be first to get returns, but it won't last.

    So you might want to switch when it slows down, or just forget it and go with Blockbuster.

    Blockbuster doesn't have the fastest turn around either, but it's better than Netflix.

    I think it is all a matter of opinion. I did not like blockbuster at all - they do not have obscure movies, they only seem to have films of the "moment" and netflix is alot faster turn around for me. I have never had a problem of them holding movies. But I also work 40 hours a week outside of the home and rarely get more then 2 movies a week anyway

    You are right about there selection, I will agree. Blockbuster doesn't have a few of the movies (older, not so big hit movies), that I was trying to find. But for the most part I've preferred Blockbusters.
    I know what you mean about the working, I also work 40 hours a week, go to college part time, and am a full time mom, so I don't get to watch much either. LOL

    If you do ebay and like anything points I would recommend that...sign up for a two week free trial choosing the 3 out at a time for like $18, once your trial is up and they have charged you the first month you will get 2500 points which is worth $25.00 on ebay.

    My acct had the points about 3 weeks after I signed up.
