Movies on the Road

Last fall, when we were traveling through Maine, we made a discovery that would change our entertainment options forever. We found Redbox! Redbox allows anyone to rent movies with just the swipe of a debit/credit card (no memberships, no late fees, etc)…and each night is only $1. The kicker is that you can return your movies to ANY Redbox around the country. We’ve been enjoying movies this way for the entire year and we love it! Just today, in Ogallala, NE…we went early this morning and snagged a few new releases. We’ll watch them and return them somewhere in Colorado. They also have free rentals on Mondays and Wednesdays…and you can reserve titles from your computer too! Most communities have Redboxes now…or DVD Express, which is basically the same thing.

Happy movie watching!

P.S. We have no affiliation with Redbox, we just love them :)


  1. After my amazing public library, Redboxes are definitely my number two choice!

    When I can’t wait to watch a new movie, Redbox! When the library isn’t open, Redbox!

    And you can buy a DVD if you really like it for only $7. (My parents got Juno from a Redbox and kept it they loved it so much!)

  2. Redbox rocks our world, too, although their selection isn’t always that great. One nice find for us was DVDs of the “House MD” TV show since we don’t watch TV regularly–plus it’s nice to watch a bunch of episodes at once.

    Lately Redbox has been popping up at Walmart, which is convenient since we park there every so often. ;)

  3. you can also get codes for free rentals online.

    i always check before picking up a movie to see if there are any new codes.

    we are Redbox FANS! :)

  4. We love Redbox! When you sign up online, you get a “rent one, get one free code.” :)

  8. I second going to for FREE codes. I have rented maybe 15 movies from RB since summer and have paid for two! Once you cycle through the codes, new ones don’t come along very often, but the free ones were fun while it lasted.
