On Christmas Day you can get FREE batteries at Blockbuster from noon-10 pm. You can get 2 packages of AA or AAA batteries!

Additional packages will be 99¢.

There are also a ton of great free battery deals right now at Staples or Office Max. These deals are great for getting batteries your Christmas toys will need and you won’t have to leave your family on Christmas!

      I am wondering how many are in each pack.

      • Rudydoescakes

        Probably two.

    • Jenny

      Why is Blockbuster open on Christmas Day? I wouldn’t shop there just for that reason, who cares about free batteries!!

      • KEB2009

        just think how many people get dvd/BR player or video game system for christmas and no games or movies.

        also for the same reason everyone else is open, to make the almighty dollar!

        If they don’t try, they’re going to go bankrupt & there won’t be a Blockbuster for the employees to work in, much less on Christmas Day. Their business is in critical condition. Give them credit for at least trying.

      i buy my batteries at ingles or kroger in a 4 pack and pay $.88-$1.25 for them.  not worth making your employees leave their families on Christmas Day.  People should plan and buy their batteries early.  I will not be supporting Blockbuster or any other business that is open on Christmas Day.

      • Squinkle99

        If they don’t work at every last opportunity, they’re going to go bankrupt. They’ve been on the watch list for awhile as their business model never kept up with internet & Redbox. At least they’re trying. It’s a last ditch effort to keep the business running. If they don’t give it a try, then there may well not be any Blockbuster going forward. Give them credit for trying & not just throwing their hands up in the air & giving up!

        So no Walmart, fast food restaurants, movie theaters, or gas stations for you?  That’s like Christians turning their noses down at someone who works on Sunday but going to a restaurant for lunch….  Just an example, not saying that you do that – since I don’t know you.

    • Christy

      Hasn’t Blockbuster always been open on Christmas?

    • Alexmccarrell

      My husband worked there in college…they are open 365 days a year and have been as long as I have known of them…this is not a new thing and employees are well aware of that and the late hours when they apply to work there.   

    • Iluv2laughatu

      I think the employees are probably glad to have jobs…
      I like what they’ve been doing to get back in the game, and I’ll be going to get batteries and probably rent a couple movies =]

      I think it’s a pretty cool promotion. I’ll be stopping by,
      there never seems to be enough AA’s around on Christmas Day, even when I stock
      up before hand. Besides I’ve got a movie from the Blockbuster Movie
      Pass I could take in to
      swap. Maybe I’ll grab a game this time. That’s two things I love about this
      service actually. When I had Netflix there were, of course, no in-store
      exchanges, nor did they have games for rent. The Blockbuster Movie
      Pass also has unlimited
      instant streaming and a bunch of (more traditional) movie channels. All for
      less than Netflix costs, added to my employee DISH Network bill, so it’s more
      convenient too.

      Where in the world is a Blockbuster Brick N Morter store anymore? I haven’t seen one of those in over 10 years! Near me there are only Kiosks. What a strange promotion for a already “dead” place, well, where I live, at least.
