Does anyone here use REDBOX? (not an ad.)

The local movie rental places in my town have all shut down. so to rent movies we have to go through our Pay Pre View... & That means 6 dollars or more for one movie. No one I know uses the redbox. But they have popped all over town... & I was wondering what the pro's and cons are of them before we try one...

  • My DH and I use red box. we love it. Its only $1 a night and it'll charge you once you return the movie. So if you have it out 3 days you'll be charged $3! There isnt a HUGE selection but theres a good enough one. I suggest you try it out for yourself and see how you like it!

  • i use it, have for over a year now.
    pros: $1 a day plus tax, convenient, can return anywhere, free movie rental offers, up to date
    cons: can't think of any

  • They're not bad if you can remember to take them back when you're done. It's a buck a night per movie, and i've never really watched one that was too bad scratched up to watch. I would say that it depends on how much you watch and would pay from them, it could rack up more then a netflix bill would be.. I don't have netflix, but know people that do, and they love it.

  • Yah i used it a few times. it takes a $1 out ur bank account for one night-u slide ur debit card or credit card. u get the movie for 24hrs. if its not back by the time it says-itll charge u a $1 a day until it gets returned. and u can return the movies to any redbox. doesnt have to be the same one.

  • I've used it and really like it. I'm a Netflix girl but Redbox comes in good in a pinch in between.

    Pros: only a $1 or free if I have a Kroger coupon.
    Con: You have to get them back the next day or pay another dollar.

  • we use it everytime we rent a movie! think about it... even if you went to movie gallery and got a new release for $5-$7 you only get to keep it 2 nights(normally). If you get redbox, you could keep your new release for 5 nights and still be ahead!! You really can't beat it!! :)
