Blockbuster was purchased by Dish Network. Several weeks ago, I purchased a Blockbuster gift card from blockbuster, only to try and use it a few weeks later upon which I was told, they were no longer accepting it.
I complained that I didn't approve of them stealing my hard earned money, and that if I was to do that, I would be in jail. The manager let me know that on the same day they stopped accepting the gift cards, Dish network also cut all of their severance packages which they were promised. How much does it cost for bad PR? In this case, only $15 dollars since I am telling everyone I know about how these charlatans sold me a card knowing full well they wouldn't accept it in the future.
Dish network is run by thieves and liars.
And to think, before this happened I actually considered giving them my business. Way to go guys, I hope the $15 was worth it.
Monetary Loss: $15.
