I'll keep updating the post regularly.
Do you also keep track of the return time, ie., how long it takes for them to acknowledge your return after you put it in the mailbox? That is also a key interval to determine whether they are throttling you.
Here's what I can remember (been using both about 4-5 weeks)
8 movies took 1 day - More like 10 (read below)
6 Movies took 2 days - More like 4 since 2 movies were returned around 6 pm when the Post Office was closed and obviously shipped the next businees day taking just one day to arrive at Blockbuster.
1 Movie took 3 days
2 or 3 movies took 2 days (I'm not sure)
all the rest 1 day
So, at this point you guys can clearly see that Blockbuster is throttling me.
I even sent an email to Blockbuster complaining about their poor shipping time. Got a BS reply.
Anyway, I really don't mind having the Blockbuster titles taking 3 days. I usually send all my movies back (from both) Monday morning. The Netflix Movies arrive Wednesdays/Thursdays. So I can watch them first and wait for Blockbuster Movies to arrive Thursdays/Fridays/Saturdays...
