    I have noticed recently that some of the return mailers don't have
    the nearest netflix shipping facility address. For the past few years I
    have been mailing the dvds back to New Brunswick NJ but within the last
    3 weeks I have gotten 2 mailers with a Baton Rouge LA address. And just
    today I received a dvd with a return address to Cleveland OH. All the
    others mailers still have the New Brunswick address.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    May not be a prob, persay. Say the facility by you is out of a title and
    they dont have another title in your que that you want. I think then if
    another, like Baton, does have it they will send that copy to you so they
    would want it back to there thus different addresses.

    Fine, so I misspelled the word "queue". It was still obvious as to what I
    meant & it doesn't change what I said. Obviously you have nothing to
    contribute to the OP's question so if picking on my poor grammar makes you
    feel better about yourself, so be it.

    Oh , and for the record questions usually end with a "?", hehe

    Also they can be testing out different hubs to see how fast you get your
    movies. I'm in Richmond, VA where they have a hub. They started sending us
    return mailers back to Maryland. I had a stack of unused mailers still going
    to Richmond and kept using them until they were finished.

    It wasn't until I finally used one of the Maryland mailers that they stopped
    sending them there.

    My statement was declarative, not interrogatory.

    KListen, I can't call Atlanta with an AT&T credit card without
    it timing out every morning up til 10 a.m. Ever since Katrina
    the South isn't working that well. Netflix is probably having
    that problem and it is affecting your region.

    I got this back today from Netflix.

    <Thanks for your inquiry.

    Please keep in mind we strive to have most discs returned to the
    distribution center closest you. However, from time-to-time there may
    be a different address displayed, as the disc is needed in that
    location.

    If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to
    contact us.

    Thanks,
    Colin,
    Netflix Customer Service> .

    Funny that after 3 years of using Netflix they just now started doing
    this. The dvd sent to Baton Rouge 8 days ago they got yesterday and
    today I got its replacement.

    This started happening to me recently also. The problem with Netflix's
    reason for doing this is that most of the time I have more than one
    Netflix disc at home. I don't pay attention to what envelope each disc
    came in, so very often a disc gets returned in a different envelope
    than it came in.

    Whenever this happens to me, I send two DVDs back in one "nearest
    facility" envelope, and throw out the envelope addressed to a facility
    across the country.

    I have recently experienced this shipping of old movies on my list from distant
    warehouses. This may take 6-8 days as opposed to a normal next day delivery..
    I always return them to the warehouse closest to me so I get other movies on the
    list faster.
    Returning 2 dvds in one envelope has given me a supply of envelopes to do this
    with.
    Regards

    Returning your rental to a distant center? This doesn't make much
    sense to me. Netflix has been implementing the distribution rule that
    if the title is not available at your local center but available from
    another center it will be sent from there directly to you, and the
    titles always return to your local center. This works best according
    to probability laws: certain kind of titles (e.g. say spanish movies)
    are more likely to have a larger audiences at areas where the
    population of spanish speaking population are largest, therefore, by
    always returning to the local center, the allocation of titles should
    be optimum such that the chance that a title you want is available
    locally is highest.
    I wonder if this is another of those tactics to slow down the delivery
    and reduce the number of titles we receive in average. :-(
