On Christmas day Blockbuster will give away two free packs of AA or AAA batteries — no purchase necessary. The stores will be open from noon until 10 p.m. and the batteries are available while supplies last. Blockbuster is hoping the promotion will get customers into stores on X-mas day to pick up a new movie or gaming title. The Blockbuster stores will also sell HDMI cables (no brand name supplied) for $9.99 each. And, additional batteries will be available for 99-cents each pack. Now why didn’t Radio Shack think of this?
