I am a movie junkie and
a tech junkie. I rent my movies from Blockbuster online, I stream from Netflix, and I get movies from Redbox. At first I was intimidated by Redbox. Every time I saw one there was a line, but after using the service, I am wondering why there is a line.
Redbox has over 35,000 machines across the country. If you are normal Redbox user, you go to the machine, look at the new releases, go through the screens of movies to find the one you want, if they don’t have it, you need to look for another. Make your selection; it pops out, you take it and leave. For many people this takes five or ten minutes; I have waited behind these people and it amazes me that they do this.
Redbox has a website! You do not need to go to a stand to find your movie. Simply visit the website, pick a movie, and it will tell you where the closest Redbox is that has that particular movie. Here is the kicker—you can reserve the movie!
I simply go to Redbox, hit “Redbox Pick Up,” swipe my card, and the movie pops out. Normally 30 seconds and I am in and out!
So if you Redbox, Go to the website and do someone else a favor: reserve your movie and take less time at the box, I hate waiting in line!
