Redbox Now Has Games

Everyone’s favorite video rental kiosks just got a little more favoriter.  Starting June 17th Redbox started offering games at it’s extremely popular DVD rental kiosks.  The games are available for $2 a day, as opposed to their DVD’s for $1 or Blu-Ray for $1.50.  The game selection is pretty good, but then again, I’m not much of a gamer.  I’d have to ask my husband what he thinks about the offerings.

When Redbox first came out, it was a bit frustrating.  You’d drive from kiosk to kiosk looking for that new release to rent.  Now they have made it super easy to find exactly what you want.  You can even reserve it, so you know it will be there when you go to pick it up!

All you need to do is go to and you can search for the movie you are looking for.  Click the “find” button right under the movie and then type in your zip code.  It will show you each kiosk near you that has the selected title in stock.  From there just click “Rent” fill out your information and the movie will be waiting for you to pick up when you get there!  No more driving around looking for right movie.

Redbox definitely has a business model that works!  Time for me to go rent Cars 2 for the xbox 360 for my daughter… see ya!

  • Another great feature of Redbox is that you can return your movie to any kiosk. When we took our summer trip we could stop for lunch, pick up something different for the kids then drop it off when we stopped again or keep it the whole 24 hours if we wanted to watch it again. Plus I could rent a movie on a rainy day at my aunt’s house w/o needing a local membership.

    BTW – I’m new to your blog! I was upgrading my dumb-phone and thought “I should have looked to see what Tech for Mommies liked,” So I looked you up on on my display phone of choice, searched for ‘phones’ and found it was the 1 you got for yourself…the EVO Shift. Whew! Good thing they kept me waiting so long I could do research there in the store. Now do you have an article on how to set up your smart phone when you’ve never had one before?
