I've heard of Netflix DVD rental subscriptions and Blockbuster DVD rental subscriptions, but I just don't watch enough movies to make a monthly subscription service worth the expense of them. Sometime around January, my local grocery store began promoting "Redbox":http://www.redbox.com/home.aspx by offering a free movie rental just for trying it.
Okay, I was game. Redbox isn't a subscription service, but a pay as you rent service. The rental fee is normally $1 per day up to a maximum rental fee of $25, at which point, you've just purchased the rental DVD. There's no late fees, and no hidden charges. However, you need to give them a credit card number because that's how you're going to pay for this service.
I love Redbox. I can go on-line to the Redbox website and reserve the movie I want to see before I go to the grocery store, then just pick it up from the Redbox self-serve kiosk while I'm get my other shopping done. For $1, the price is unbeatable, and Redbox has all of the lastest movies that I would want to see. This morning, I rented 10, 000 B.C. from Redbox. And when I'm done watching it, all I have to do is insert the DVD back into the self-serve kiosk to turn it back in.
With over 8, 000 locations now, it's worth going up to the Redbox website to see if there's a Redbox near you.
