I’m pretty sure every blogger has already written about Redbox. I’m going to join them and sing its praises.
Redbox is a video rental service that allows you to check out videos in kiosks throughout town. Many can be found at McDonnald’s restaurants or in groceries.
Recently, a Redbox machine has found its way to my local grocery! I’m a bit surprised, since the grocery has its own in-house video rental section.
Take your debit or credit card, and you can check out many new releases from the machine.
The best part? It’s $1 per day to rent it, but you can get free rental codes!
Go directly to the Redbox web site and click the link that says “Get a free rental.” You’ll get a code e-mailed to you.
Or, check sites such as InsideRedBox to find free rental codes.
It’s a great deal as long as you return it to a Redbox machine by 9 p.m. the following night, otherwise you’ll be charged $1 per day until you do (or until you reach 25 or so days–whichever happens first).
I’ve only used Redbox once tonight, but I’m pretty sure I’ll stick with it for awhile.
Have you tried it yet? What do you think?
