When you return a movie, you can only rent another movie for free.
"Q. Can I redeem a DVD from BLOCKBUSTER Online for an in-store game rental?
A. BLOCKBUSTER Online DVDs can be redeemed for movie rentals only. "
You will get a SINGLE monthly e-coupon which will entitle you to a game rental.
The online trial rocks, and since I used FRIENDS as the coupon code, mine was extended to 4 weeks. One of the mailing centers is nearby in San Jose, so I typically get the movie "next day". I am ripping through their limited in store stock, but was told that they expect new HD DVD(and BR) after the new year.
