Redbox, a DVD rental service, is becoming a popular alternative to the local video store. Located at gas stations, grocery stores, airports, and other busy establishments, Redbox makes it easy to rent DVD's for only a $1 per movie per day.
As a long time customer of Netflix, I felt that my needs were being met. Unfortunately, there are times that I want to watch a new release but Netflix does not have it available for instant viewing. Yes, Blockbuster is always an option, but who wants to spend that kind of money and drive that far? In my city, I pass at least three Redbox kiosks before I ever reach a Blockbuster.
Beyond the convenient locations and reasonable price, Redbox makes it easy to reserve movies from Redbox.com and pick them up at your leisure. Additionally, customers can rent DVD's from any Redbox and return them to any Redbox. This is perfect traveling entertainment for kids with short attention spans. Consider renting a couple of movies before the trip and exchange them for another set on the way home. How great is that?
Assuming you're interested in renting from Redbox, I created a video that explains how it all works. Let me know if you have any additional questions or requests. Enjoy!
