After a long day at work my wife and I were looking for some cheap entertainment for the night. She suggested we check to see what movies are available at Redbox. I had heard good things about the movie rental service, but hadn’t had much experience with it first hand.
We were able to look up what movies available on my wife’s Redbox app on her IPhone. It makes browsing for movies ten times easier than using a video rental store like Blockbuster. I can remember countless times being dragged up and down the isles bickering with my wife over which movie to watch on a Friday night. Skipping all that hassle we were able to make a our selection from the comfort of our couch.
We agreed upon the movie “Date Night” featuring Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. Conveniently the Redbox location with our movie was less than a mile away at the local Bloom grocery store. It was as easy as clicking a few buttons on the screen, swiping my credit card, and we were good to go.
It turned out to be a fun night for the two of us. The movie was decent for something featuring Tina Fey. I feel like she just can’t relate to audiences (Ironically my wife loves her). The movie was very easy to return when we we’re finished. The next day we went back to the Redbox location, just click the return movie button and slide it back into the machine. All that convenience for only one dollar per day.
My friend often argues that Netflix is the way to go when it comes to movie rentals. It might be more convenient that the movies are delivered to you, but I feel like I don’t watch enough movies to justify paying $7.99 a month. Yes they offer unlimited movies, but I can’t see myself watching more than eight movies in a months time. For the casual movie watcher like myself, you can’t go wrong with Redbox.
Forget getting a signing up for a membership, waiting in line, paying as much as $7 for one movie rental. From now on I know I will be renting my movies from Redbox. You can’t beat the convenience or the low price.
