Am I the only one that find RedBox a rip off comapred to other options?

WE have netflix for 10 a month and get however many movies we want Plus we can stream a TON on the TV. I find it so odd that anyone would rather spend a dollar a night on a redbox movie. I mean regularly. Not occasionally. I work with a lady who gets 2 or so every weekend and pays about 4 dollars so by them end of the months she has paid around 16 a month. But shes feels it's more convenient... What about you?

  • I use RedBox, usually 3-4 times a month, and keep them for just 1 night, so for me it's really a better value.

  • For movie lovers, redbox is definitely not the best options. It is probably more for families like mine, we watch a movie every other month or so. A subscription to Netflixs would be wasteful for us because we would never use it.

  • I just feel like I get so much more for my money. Then again we don't have cable so streaming is all we watch...

  • I feel like it's a big convienience only since I only use it once a month totalling maybe 2 bucks

  • I rent maybe a dozen movies a year, if that. I like Redbox.

  • we have netflix, but I do like redbox for when we are traveling. We pick up a movie for the van's DVD player at one location and return it down the road at another one when the kids are done with it. We spent $4 bucks for the entire trip on redbox rentals and the kids were thrilled with watching new movies. But other than that... we rarely use redbox.
