    Anyone ever rented a DVD from those red boxes outside the likes of Publix or Wallmart?
    If so, how do they work? Do you use a credit card or are they cash rentals? Are the rentals for 24 hours?

    Interesting. I see them all the time and never thought about it. I was curious too so I spent a bit of time on their website. Here's what I found.
    What types of payment does Redbox accept?
    You can pay for your rentals with both debit and credit cards, including American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
    How long is the rental period?
    Your rental period ends at 9:00 p.m. the day after you rent.

    Want to hold onto your disc for longer? No problem. For each extra day you keep it, you'll be charged for another rental period + applicable tax. If you hold onto your disc for the maximum rental period (21 days almost everywhere for DVDs), you'll be charged the maximum charge and the disc is yours to keep. In most areas, those fees are $25.20 + tax for DVDs ($26.67 in Maryland), $34.50 + tax for Blu-ray Discs ($35.51 in Maryland) and $60 + tax for video games ($61.48 in Maryland).

    Wow, that is great information Tom - thank you so much.
    Some of the boxes are actually inside shops (Publix) so we would have to hire from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day which would be two days rental.

    From what I understand you can drop the disc off at any red box location

    They probably are inexpensive. They seem to be quite popular. I've not used them though

    The one I looked at was $1.28....that is major crazy!!!!! I can't even remember back when videos (never mind DVD's) were that inexpensive to rent over here.
