Are you a Redbox fan? Just read this on a blog about Redbox raising their prices. Now I'll have to start paying attention as I drive past them! What are your thoughts on this?

From a purely business perspective, since Blockbuster intends to close their stores and only do box and online

I've used Redbox. Not to be confused with PAYING for Redbox, lol! We've always had codes to use for free rentals.


We also use our library for movies. I can't even remember the last time we've gone to Blockbuster or any other movie rental place.


(OT, Kathy, but just curious how things are going w/your dh's unemployment & job search?? Hope you guys are doing ok.)

I haven't used them yet, but if I lived in a larger town I would. I had Netflix, which I loved, but we got rid of it last year.

I live in a small town so we still have a video store. But $2.00 is a good price and I would do it.
