The Dish Network / Blockbuster marriage is royal pain in the arse;
Fair warning to anyone trying to redeem a Blockbuster Total Access 1-Out-At-A-Time 12-Month Subscription gift card purchased from a Blockbuster retail location;
Customer service at Blockbuster is extremely inconsistent.
The card is valued at $120 for 12 months and you may experience problems with the application of the gift (value) funds against an account with a credit card already associated.
As it was explained to me by one CS rep, the promo rate is $10/month which includes any applicable taxes. Other CS reps will have no clue of this and subsequently you won't
get use of the full-term if debits to the applied balance are charged at $9.99 + taxes. Furthermore, it states right on the card that you need to go to a specific web address that doesn't
exist so enabling a new account will be fraught with major frustration when you try to sort it out with most of the CS representatives. Additionally, Blockbuster hit my credit card for the monthly
subscription amount even though the gift card was supposedly applied - so word to the wise - check your online account for proper processing.
Dish screws this up just like many other billing mistake issues - frequently demonstrated by the Denver based company.
Stick with Netflix...
