Redbox Movie Rental
Posted by on
KANSAS -- One should not be confused about the risks of paying $1 for a rental. Let's remember the old saying "You get what you pay for"... My son rented a 3 movies from redbox without returning them within the "25 day's" and without my acknowledgment. I only realized once I received my credit card statement that I was charged $26.98 for each of the rentals a total of ~$81. When I contacted Redbox they said, they would refund $5 for each movie if we returned them.

This is interesting considering Blockbuster will give you a "FULL REFUND" when you return the movies, regardless of time lapse. Hmm... Did I mention I will never rent from redbox again and I urge to do the same. Consider Blockbuster or Netflix whose business are not as deceptive.

I love Redbox but I also remember to return the movies....

You can't blame Redbox for something that your son did wrong!

I'll stick with Redbox and $1.00 rentals.

Sounds like you all should be renting from the "Just Go Ahead And Keep It" movie house. I'm surprised to know that Blockbuster returns all of your money. It's got to be hard for these outfits to be making any money off one's sitting in your home.

I agree with Brenda. You should be mad at your son for renting the movies without your approval and for not being responsible enough to return them.
tander on 04/27/2008:
I agree you should be mad at your son, he's the one who was irresponsible and didn't return them and I'm sure they charged you what you deserved and you should be thankful, you got any money back from them.

the site says.

Redbox DVD rental.$1 a night with no late fees ever.

What part of $1 A NIGHT did you not understand.
Ponie on 04/28/2008:
So you're 'Smart Enough Not to be Burned twice,' but not smart enough to realize a company is in business to make money? You should be mad at your son for not returning the movies, not Redbox. Alert: There's probably a red flag beside your name so Redbox won't be burned twice by you or your son.

I still have not seen this redbox.I go through Netflix,and love the service
ChuhBaca on 04/28/2008:
So you kept the movies 25 days. 3 movies x $1/dayx 25 days. Looks like you owe $75 for rentals. How is that not fair?

"At Redbox, there is no such thing as a late fee. Each night you enjoy the DVD is only an additional $1.00. + tax"

What is the "within 25 days" you are talking about? They make it very clear it is a daily rental.

I say Beware of redbox!
Just to make you think more before you rent from redbox!
My girlfriend used it one night to rent 4 movies, I returned them the next night, but they didn't register. You don't get a receipt for a return, so they are trying to charge her card $25 for each movie! SO much for being fool proof! They basically called her a lier, that they were not there. She had to change her account numbers so they could not collect. The bank told her that she wasn't the only one that they had to do that for.
So if you want to go through all that hassle, go ahead and use redbox, I won't ever again!
By the way, she called and talked to them the 3rd day they were "no show" because they email you the status of your return.

Beware of Redbox
Posted by on
INDIANA -- Everyone beware of Redbox! I used Redbox on a regular basis and we did have some movies that we kept some additional days. I don't pay much attention, but they ended up not charging us the fees until 2 months later! I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous in my opinion. When I complained, they stated that they have up to 90 days to charge you.

So you turned movies in late and thought you got away with it, and you didn't. Your complaint is without merit.

Keeping a movie for two months after its due is ridiculous, in my opinion.

'we did have some movies that we kept some additional days. I don't pay much attention'
Redbox did pay attention. Pay your late fees and stop complaining!

I like that Blockbuster no longer charges late fees. But they will charge the full price of the movie to your credit card if you don't return it after a certain amount of time.

Hey Steve, you still with gamefly.? I canceled my subscription till they get better games out.

Netflix is a good way to go! And I can stream movies to my DVD player and watch'em on the TV. You can watch on the computer too, but I haven't figured out how to hook it up to my TV.

there was a fix on youtube,but it didn't work when I tried it.

only good thing about a ps3, is the blueray player. I think they are coming with gow 3 soon. That looks good, and that advanced warfare 2 looks awesome also.

Yeah all my friends,that game are stoked on MW2,the first one was the shiznet...I think I'm more of a purist when it comes to Call of Duty...The original is still my favorite,but will for sure check out MW2....

If you returned the movies late then you owe the late fees.
Anonymous on 08/25/2009:
It's only supposed to be 24 days per their terms and conditions. After that you own it. Dispute it, their website says 24 days! By the way, how good was the movie that you kept it beyond 1 day? Was Leeann Tweeden in it?
Anonymous on 08/25/2009:
What justthefaxx said. You own it after a certain period of time.

I've never had any problem with them, and the latest I've returned a movie was 2 days.

Geeeeeeez.

Redbox will charge you a dollar a day for tenrty five days, then you own the movie. It sounds like the beef is that charges didn't show up right away. So what, if you had already written down in your checkbook, it doesn't matter when they present them. For the record, I love Redbox, I wish I thought of it first.
jktshff1 on 08/25/2009:
Ken, put the drink down...now!!!! LOL!
how many in numerals is tenrty???
Crown Jules on 08/25/2009:
One word...Netflix. No late fees, keep the movies as long as you want, they pay shipping both ways and they have a huge selection. I have never regretted signing up with them.

DO NOT USE REDBOX!!!
Rich on 12/29/2012:
I returned a redbox movie almost two months ago, my first blue ray to try out a new player. It was a poor movie choice. I returned it the next day and got an error message that prompted me to call the redbox help line that night. The woman was nice enough and said she would make note of it on my account. I heard nothing else from redbox. Today I looked at my credit card receipt and see redbox charged me $37 for the movie that I returned. Never again for redbox. There is no way to force accountability on the consumer side which makes it a very risky enterprise indeed.
