Do any of you have it in your area? Its basically a movie rental vending machine, costing $1 for a one night rental. I've been using them a lot lately since discovering a promotional code that lets you get them for free. Anyone else use them? They usually have some decent/fairly new movies in them.

I've never used it.

How do they go about ensuring your going to return the movie?

Credit card gets charged until you return the movie?

Ah. I had always thought about it in terms of cash. Makes sense.

Yes, you can only use a credit/debit card for it. When I was about to use one for the first time, I thought it was going to have bad/old movies in it. I was wrong.

 You get charge $1 per night (night counting as 9pm local time) and will only get charged for 25 consecutive billing periods (in this case 25 days) after which the charges sto, but the DVD is now yours to keep and cannot be returned to Redbox.

 When they were first installed in my store we discovered a nice glitch. You could take a gift card like AmEx with only a dollar or two left on it, and rent up to five movies. Then of course you had no reason to return them and it would cost nothing. They have sense realized that to be a bad thing and fixed it, at least in my store.

They text me a free rental code every monday.

 

The closest one was about 10 miles away, so with gas, it was cheaper to rent for 5 days from Hollywood Video than to rent for free one night from Redbox.

 

Now there's one in town, so it's back on for me.  I watched Resident Evil 3 last night.  I imagine it would have made more sense if I'd seen the first two, but still a pretty decent zombie movie.
