I was pretty impressed with how quickly Gamefly managed to send out my first couple of video games – they arrived 4 days or so after adding them to my queue which is pretty good considering the mail up here! I sent back Lost Planet and Rainbow Six Vegas on Monday or Tuesday, so logged in to see if they’d arrived yet. Wasn’t expecting much, but it seems Gamefly use a ‘Fast Returns’ system whereby if you return the games via a postal sorting office which scans the barcodes on the outside of the envelope, Gamefly will be notified the games are on their way back and automatically send out your next games. Very cool, and means turn-around should be pretty quick as they’re not having to go all the way to California before the next games are despatched.
I guess the Anchorage sorting office does the scanning, as I’m pretty sure Tunt’s post office doesn’t quite have that facility 🙂
