- You have to have a credit or debit card to use any DVD rental kiosks. You might be able to use a "cash card" but I haven't tried it myself & I read that they were no longer being allowed because some customers did not return the movie & the rental companies were unable to charge the card for the price of the movie. Also, if you have a debit card that does not allow your balance to go below zero then the kiosk will tell you to use a different card. Why? Because if you forget to return the movie & your balance is too low, they won't be able to charge you for the late fees.
- Most rental kiosks only have regular DVDs but some have Blu-Ray DVDs for an additional fee & I heard they might start renting video games as well. *Recently Blockbuster Express kiosks have a new feature called "hot releases" which have a small "fire" icon on them. Those titles are $2.99 so beware of them. Blockbuster stores now have their DVDs for $2.99 for 3 days so paying $2.99 for 1 day at a kiosk is NOT a good deal.
- Some of these kiosks will even let you BUY a used DVD for about $5.00.
- You can sign up for e-mail updates from both Redbox & Blockbuster on their websites.
- If you subscribe to their e-mail updates you will probably get a free code from them once in a while. (When I get one I will post it to my Facebook page: AZ Money Savin Mama)
*(I read that you CANNOT use a free movie code if you reserve your movie on-line so I haven't tried it myself)
