Have you seen Redbox yet?

This vending machine is amazing! It's genius in fact!

Houston-area McDonalds restaurants are now offering DVD rentals at each of its locations through these high-tech vending machines. For $1 a night, you can visit your nearest Ronnie Mac's Steak House to rent one of several new releases through the Redbox automated service and simply return it to any vending machine when you're finished with it. This new service has been quite a "blockbuster" success.

The Redbox is the greatest thing since sliced bread; a DVD vending machine company, Redbox Automated Retail LLC, is owned by Mcdonalds. Netflix has finally met its match! Now granted this thing is not free like library rentals, but this machine has one thing that libraries do not; this machine is stock with all the new releases, which can be rented for only $1 a night. Not only that, but if you have a promo code, you can rent it free for one night. I was surprised that there are actually a lot of promo codes out there, which is good because they can only be used once per credit card. You must have a credit or debit card to use the machine, because they will charge you $1 each night the DVD is out, up to 25 nights at which point you own the DVD for the bargain price of $25, not really much of a bargain, but if you get it back the next night and use promo codes you can be watching quite a few DVDs for free. Movies are due back by 7 p.m. the following day and best of all can be dropped off at any Redbox location. The particular Redboxs that I know of around Rhode Island are inside of stop and shops, and since stop and shop is open 24/7 except on Sundays you can get there right at midnight and get the latest new release out of the machine, before stores open.
