Fortunately, Redbox has brought back a way to entertain the whole family for just $1! With many locations around the country, you can find this DVD rental service at stores such as Walgreen’s, Walmart, 7-Eleven, or local grocery store.

redbox How does Redbox work? Simply visit a kiosk and select a title. Each kiosk holds 630 great movies and is stocked with new releases every Tuesday. Provide debit or credit card information and the DVD is yours to rent for only $1! Return the DVD before 9pm the next day to any kiosk, or choose to keep it another day for just $1 more! After 25 days, the DVD is yours to keep. From the press release:

For added convenience, customers can visit www.redbox.com to choose their title online and pick it up immediately at the redbox location of their choice.
