Get a Free or Cheap DVD Rental At RedBox
Published 8/25/07 (Modified 3/8/11)
The other day I was at my local Giant Food grocery store and noticed several people examining a red kiosk. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that it was a DVD rental station run by a new company called RedBox. I guess I must be blind because apparently the red kiosks have been sprouting up everywhere.
The company runs DVD rental kiosks, primarily located inside of McDonald's restaurants and many grocery stores. The neat part is that DVDs can be rented for only $1 per day, with no late fees. Call it what you will, but you are simply charged a buck for every day you use it. Rentals must be returned before 7:00 p.m. the next day to avoid any extra day penalty (another $1). Each kiosk is fully automated, holding no more than 500 DVDs and can be accessed via a touch screen where you can select your DVD choice, and pay using a credit or debit card.
