What a great concept, Redbox definitely has the DVD rental system figured out. I’m sure most of you have seen on of those tall red boxes located strategically in high traffic areas of the neighborhood. For $1 you can rent any available movie from RedBox and drop it back off at any other location. Can you can cheap and convenient form of entertainment?
Not only is a Redbox movie great for a date night, a family fun night, but it’s also great for a road trip. Stop by your local Redbox, pickup a movie for the kids in the car, stop for lunch return the movie and even pick up another movie for the second half of the trip. It was a life saver for us on the way to the beach a couple of years ago. Our five year old loved getting to stop on the road to pick out a new movie and for only $1.
Now sure, not everyone loves Redbox. Movie rental places such as Blockbuster, Netflix and other online movie rental businesses have taking a major hit from the success of Redbox. However, for us the consumer it’s good news that you can now rent a movie for $1!
