Have you ever wanted to pick up that new movie that just came out on DVD only to find that when you get to the video rental store, they are all out? You got dressed, got in the car, went inside all to come back out unsuccessful. While you still need to get dressed and leave the house, there are now easier ways to see the newest movies available.
Now you can’t go to a grocery store, drug store, or gas station without running into a movie rental kiosk. Some are blue, some are red, and some are even green. You walk up to the touch screen, make a selection, pay with a credit or debit card and out pops the movie. Prices usually range from $1 to $1.50 and you have one day and one night to view it. If you do forget to bring it back, it just costs $1 (or $1.50) for each night that you go over. Compared to a new release movie rental at an actual movie rental store, you are saving big time.
All kiosks are linked to the companies online website. If you want to make sure that a certain movie is available, go to the website, check what is in the kiosk closest to you and see if there is anything you want. If so, go ahead and reserve it be entering your credit/debit card information online and head over to pick it up. Use the same card to pay. If you can’t find it at your kiosk, check another one until you find what you are looking for.
Free codes come out all of the time for these machines. A code gives you one free rental provided that you return the movie the next evening. One of the best ways to get a code is signing up with each of the websites (Redbox and Blockbuster) and providing your email address.
