The redbox app is a must have. As we all know with their $1.00 daily rental fee, redbox has basically put the Blockbusters of the world out of business. It’s an awesome price compared to any other type of movie rental place. redbox recently increased their price (for the first time in eight years) by $0.20. They stated it was because of rising operational costs and increased debit card fees. Although, I’m sure their costs have increased for these things, I’m sure they are still making BILLIONS. And if you think for a second that $1.20 is all they make per customer, you are way off. I’d guess the average redbox renter keeps each movie for at least two nights, doubling the amount made on each renter. Regardless of the 20% increase and how many nights you keep the movie rentals, I can’t complain about the, still, very cheap price of a redbox rental. This app allows you to use redbox to the fullest extent. The app can be used to find a redbox kiosk, browse/reserve movies and even watch trailers.
My favorite feature about the redbox app is how it can find the closest kiosk to your current location or any address you type in – breaking them down by kiosks within 5 miles, within 10 miles and within 15 miles. With each listing, the app gives you the name of the business where the kiosk is located, the address of the business and if it’s an indoor or outdoor kiosk. Whether or not it’s indoor or outdoor is an important fact, seeing as you wouldn’t be able to get to the indoor kiosk located inside the grocery store if it’s after 9:00 or 10:00PM. Once you tap select on the location you want to go to, you are brought to a screen that lists all the movies in that redbox kiosk! How awesome is that?? No more driving from redbox to redbox trying to find the movie you’re looking for! Now you can let the app do it for you! Once you find the movie you’re looking to rent, tap on the title. You will see all the information you would see if you were standing in front of the kiosk! Enjoy reading through the plot, along with who’s starring in the movie. Have you ever been standing in line at a redbox kiosk just watching the person ahead of you go into each title and take their sweet time reading through the plot of each movie? This app could really take care of that issue! Last but not least, you can reserve the movie you want to rent! Simply login through your phone to your redbox account! If you don’t have an account, you can sign up. It’s quick and simple! The redbox app is crazy convenient! It’s seriously a must-have app!
