How have I missed out on RedBox? I walk past it multiple times a week going in and out of Publix. Sitting at the light I see one in front of Walgreens and this afternoon I see one in front of a GSU dormitory across from the parking deck at Crawford Long.
Red Box is a vending machine where you can rent a DVD for $1 a day. Basically you enter your credit card for verification, pick from a list of DVD’s (including new releases), pay $1 for the day and then run back home to watch it.
It is genius actually. It is a vending machine so no opening or closing hours, no manpower needed to run it and your overhead is freaking electricity, no waiting on Netflix to come in the mail and certainly a lot cheaper then paying for a movie from Comcast onDemand.
Even with movies on the iPad and cellphones the new thing, some of us still like a deal. How longs it been since you saw a movie for a buck?
