Have you ever used the red box before?

Our grocery store use to have a video place inside but was torn out and replaced by a Red Box. It's been years but I put off using it. I really liked the video store. I hate that everything is being replaced by boxes and do it yourself things. Well today I gave in and used it. A dollar a rental and lots to pick from. I have to say I do like it. Anyone else use the Red Box? Have you ever had any problems with it?

  • The only problem I've had is when I go return them the machine is always down, but that's only in the Walmart. Other than that the movies are a good deal I can rent Bluray movies for a buck ... :)

  • RedBox is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! We have a bunch in the area, so I have options when I want to return them and you sign up your cell phone on their website and get free movie Mondays, except now it's only the first Monday of the month. I hate Blockbuster... too expensive!!!

  • I love it! We use netflix, mostly, but redbox is great for those days when we don't have any netflix coming in.

  • I LOVE using red box, who can beat a dollar a day plus tax? I've never had any problems with the machines being down, you also get e-mail receipts when you take out and return. I also get e-mails every week listing the new movies available....i'd never get movies from anywhere else (except the library, who can beat free)
