Netflix’s new tactic to delay shipping?

Monday, September 18th, 2006

I received 3 of my Netflix titles in the mail today, and I immediately realized that all reply envelopes are addressing to 3 completely different locations. 2 out of 3 have the addresses printed onto the envelopes, instead of the usual pre-printed ones. Living in New York, my “Nearest Netflix Shipping Facility” is usually the one in Flushing, NY. While one envelope still addresses to Flushing, NY, the rest are addressed to Worcester, MA and San Jose, CA. Now I can’t possibly imagine that San Jose will be my nearest Netflix Shipping Facility!

Could it be that Netflix wants to delay receiving returns so that they can slow down mailing out your next movie on the queue? I certainly think so. Pretty sneaky sis!

Oh, don’t forget that you can always mail back multiple movies in 1 envelope. So I am going to mail them all back using the Flushing, NY envelope.
