Does every Blockbuster require a credit card to rent 360 titles. This frustrates me because I dont have a credit card and they say a debit card wont do. Im not about to get a credit card just to rent games, Im in enough debt from school as it is. I dont need a credit card adding to it. Does anyone know a way around this? My friend suggested I sign up for a game pass, and then try to rent a 360 title. Not sure if this would work though.

yes they require a CC, mainly because you can steal them and returned them scratched as fuck.

Yeah, they do everywhere. It's so if you steal/damage the game they can get their $$ back.

i got around it... i rented a game with cash and gave them on of my CC's and then closed the card immediately afterward, if i do not return it they have no way of charging me now...you can always apply for a credit card, activate it, then close it...

Yeah but when I use to work there we didnt even require a credit card all that you would need is a drivers license and a credit card if you had one. If you didnt have a cc then we could use your bank card or check card

they legally cant use your bank card as a form of guarenteeing (sic) payment.
