Redbox offers self-service DVD rental machines. The rental fee? $1 per night. That's right . . . it's the sweet price when you don't have to pay an employee to stock DVDs, handle returns, etc.
Currently, the site lists over 750 locations, but they are concentrated in only the eight urban areas of Hartford, Baltimore/Washington D.C., St. Louis, Houston, Denver, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, and the Twin Cities.
Common Redbox locations are McDonalds, restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. The downside to this is that many of these locations are not open 24 hours, so if you want to return your DVD at 1 am, you may be out of luck. That said, the movies you take out are due back the next night at 10 pm (before these locations close). So, if you want to return the DVD at 1 am, chances are you're already paying your late fee anyway. Holidays, however, are the exception. You might actually be forced to pay a whole $2 for a movie because your location is closed! Even still, unlike Blockbuster, you can return these DVDs to any kiosk location, so even if your grocery store is closed on New Year's when you want to return the item, that gas station on the other side of town might be open 24-7.
Redbox frequently gives out codes for a free DVD rental. Sure, it's only a $1 value, but that's still one free night! To be sure you receive offers, sign up on the Redbox offers page. Many codes are also wonderfully consolidated and listed at Inside Redbox, a new blog that discusses Redbox.
If you're interested in a franchise, you can simply use their contact form to request information. I don't even get a dime (a.k.a. 10% off a rental), but feel free to let them know where you heard about Redbox!
