Never used a RedBox before. Just visited their website and they sure make it hard to find out any pricing information which always worries me about a company. Can anyone enlighten me?

@thewronggrape: It's a solid deal. You go pick out a movie (mostly new releases but some redboxes will have random throwbacks). Each movie costs $1 per night, with a return time of 9 PM (in Minnesota at least). Each day you have to movie past 9 PM, it charges $1 to whichever card you swipe originally at the machine. Retruning DVDs is a simple process. Overall a great innovation and a lot cheaper and easier than renting from the video store. Hardest part is choosing which movie to rent!

I use them 1-3 times a week. My uncle is a truck driver and he loves them because he can rent a movie in Tulsa,OK and drop it off in Phoenix,AZ. Rent from any Redbox location and return to any Redbox location. LOVE IT!!
If you have multiple cards you can use it once per card. It will send you the receipt via email.

Also if you sign up online they will send free rental promo code in a text to your phone the 1st Monday of every month. Find them on Facebook and "Like" them you get a free promo code as well.

@thewronggrape: All movies are a buck a night. When you rent a movie, you use your debit or credit card and it's charged when you return the movie ($1 for 1 night, $2 for 2 nights, etc.). You can also return it to any redbox location; this makes it perfect for renting while travelling. I use them all the time, and my only complaint is that the people who rent the dvds before me don't always take good care of them - I often have to clean the dvd before watching it.

The cost actually changed the last time I got a redbox movie. It used to be $1 a night. Now it's $1.25 a night.

Yea, I rent from there 2 - 4 times a month. Pretty handy really. 1-2 nights with a movie, some popcorn and snuggling :3

Also it helps lessen movie pirating, yaarrr!!!~

Enter promo code "BREAKROOM" for a free night as well.

as a parent, let me tell you how awesome it is to rent a movie at home, pop it into the kids DVD for a roadtrip, then drop it at a Redbox wherever our destination is. Silence in the car for $1 is the best deal there is, and I can drop another $1 for the return trip and a different movie.

The DVDONME code is the code that you receive when you "like" Redbox on Facebook. It is also good for only one use per credit card.

For first time users, you can also use "REDBOX" for a free movie.

@ch2hands: I've always still seen them at $1 / night. There's the BlueBoxes (Blockbuster's version of RedBox that are $1 +tax), but has anyone else seen Redbox up to $1.25? I love the concept of "a movie for a dollar."

Just got one this week, in Texas, at least, they are still $1 plus tax (8.25%)=$1.08/night. We also have video games for $2/night - I rented the new Lego Harry Potter for Wii this week, although I think not all areas have the games available for rent.

@aupcjustin: For real?! I used that promo code for literally a year and never paid for a movie (typed it in at the kiosk), and then we got Netflix so I don't use Redbox anymore. It's amazing that code still works, how do these guys make money?

vote-for1vote-against

@thewronggrape: I guess you have to use it once to figure out how awesome redbox is compared to blockbuster.

The DVD rental is $1 per day. Period.
If you keep it for 2 days $2. If you keep it for 3 days $3... you get the idea.

Best thing to do is reserve online and pick up at a Redbox vending machine.

I've been using Redbox for Years. The only thing that compares for me is netflix. It's a $1 a night +Tax. I usually see charges for $1.08/per night, on my bank statement. The tax might be different, depending on your state or area.
Dropping them off anywhere is extremely nice, when you're schedule changes a lot. Single Father, and no late fees, is what took my business from any type of rental store. They also have a policy, if you keep the movie for a certain time period, they stop charging you, and it's basically yours. I think it's 25 days, but you'll have to check their website, or machines for exact time frame. That's nice if you loose a movie, compared to the way the stores handled it. A lot of the machines also have a button for buying used movies from them. I've seen some for $5 and some for $7.

Yes, the code seems to work once per credit card. If you enter your email address during checkout, they'll email you receipts.

Redbox is fabulous. I love the convenience and the simple pricing plan. $1 per day (plus tax), period. I also like being able to use their website and iPhone app to see what movies are at different Redbox locations, reserve movies, and manage my account.

redbox has indeed raised their price to $1.25/night and neither "DVDONLINE" or "BREAKROOM" promo codes are valid. do not waste your gas and time like i just did. especially when it's 110 degrees outside.

The red box by me is $1.15/night plus tax and it seems to give me 24 hours per DVD (i.e rent at 3pm one day, return after 3pm next day you get charged an extra day). I found it somewhat a hassle to use their service, seems like their new releases come out on Tuesday. By the time I go there on Friday all of the good ones are gone/taken. :-( It's been worth it for me to use netflix since we watch a bunch of movies per month & we can also stream them instantly to the TV.

@mgherter: I just tried it like a half hour ago and it did not work for me. I used the DVDONME code just last night so I know that one works.

Also, the movies have indeed gone up to $1.25 in mine - just today apparently because I rented 2 movies last night - one with the DVDONME code and one that I paid for and it was still $1.06. When I saw tonight that it had gone up to $1.25, I declined to rent. I read somewhere that they are "testing" these new prices. Maybe if enough people stop renting at the $1.25 price, they'll bring the price back down. I hope so. My local M&P video store has .99 overnight rentals so I'll go there instead if I have to.

@pabbott63: DVDONME is the correct code. I have used it twice now and it has worked both times.

Okay, let me do some math.

I have the 1-at-a-time plan with Netflix which includes unlimited streaming on my PC and via my Wii to my TV. I watch maybe 2 DVDs/week = 8/month @ $9.87/month (with taxes) = $1.23 per DVD. I watch maybe 3 streaming movies/programs a week also. The most work I have to do is walk down the hall to my mailbox.

There's a RedBox inside my local supermarket which is about an 8-minute walk away. That's already further than my mailbox! Plus, if it's $1.25 BEFORE tax and with my history of procrastination, I think I best just stick to my Netflix. In my situation, I don't see any benefits of using RedBox instead.

@thewronggrape Redbox offers some genuine advantages over Netflix, actually.

Netflix movies take a day or two to arrive - more, if you're getting a recent release. The proliferation of Red Boxes (and, now, Red Box knockoffs) means that for a dollar you can walk out of the grocery store/pharmacy/gas station with your rental in hand, no waiting. The fact that there are so many promo codes also means you have the ability to pick up a fair amount of free dvds, apparently. Red Box isn't a replacement for Netflix - that's why there's no subscription. It's a quick fix to an easy problem.

The services are still quite similar, which is probably the result of the fact that the man who started Red Box was also a founder of Netflix, who left the company to start the Red Box idea. Which wasn't actually his first either - He had the same idea during the 90s, only with video tapes, and the Red Box was a giant, surreal-looking VHS vending robot instead. I'm friends with the guy's son - nice family.

@ekid2k: what are the down sides, other than you have to leave your parent's house twice within 24 hours?

Redbox? I love Redbox! I've got 3 movies out right now--watching one with my daughter as I am typing this!

$1 a day, get it in by 9 PM the next night.

I heard that Redbox is owned by Coinstar which is owned by McDonald's. Anyone verify this? It's good trivia if it's true.

Enjoy the Redbox. Codes typically expire at midnight on the day it is available.

@bwagner54: My recollection is that Micky D's AND Coinstar used to own Redbox in a 50-50 deal, but Coinstar bought out MacDonald's share last year.

[EDIT: confirmed by Wikipedia, and you know everything on there is true]

If I already have an account do I just enter the code on the redbox or at the site?

Droid Market has a free app for Redbox codes. I haven't tried it since I'm in the same mindset as thewronggrape about Netflix math and procrastination.

Redbox has limited selection and in well populated areas you'll often find that they quickly run out of popular movies. Their machines have malfunctioned a number of times causing you to drive around trying to find another location if you don't want to pay an extra nights rental. The dvds, as mentioned, are not well taken care of by previous renters.

Now you can use their site to reserve a movie at a particular box but that's not always trustworthy either.

I have a netflix account. Between watch instantly and the actual DVDs I rarely find myself needing more but from time to time I do still check something out via redbox... personally though, redbox rarely has much of anything I'd care to see... even for a buck.

@chichisbud: I you have problems finding a redbox to return the movie, just call the 800 number. That happened to me a few times and when I call to tell them the box is out of order, they give me a free nights rental to make up for it while the box is getting fixed. That way you don't have to drive all over town trying to find on that works..

i really didnt think that movies for a $1 could get any better.... woot proves me wrong again
