Our Redbox Experience

We finally made the effort to actually rent a movie from a Redbox machine. Several friends and family members have been using Redbox to rent movies for a dollar each for a while now and they would usually just shake their heads and change the subject when we said we were meaning to try it but just had not gotten around to it. So last week when my wife and I wanted to rent a new release I suggested Redbox. Our closest grocery store has one out front so we drove over there and tried it. We found one we wanted, entered the free rental code and got to the part where you swipe your credit card and…it wouldn’t take. After several more attempts we stepped out of the way to let the couple behind us try. Same result. We had a small debate about just going to the video store or trying another Redbox. The allure of a free new release was too tempting so we drove several blocks to another machine in front of a McDonalds. Everything worked the first time and we took home our free movie to watch, glad that we had decided to persevere.

I imagine this is old news to most of you but Inside Redbox is an excellent site to find codes for free rentals.
