Redbox Raises Prices
Didn't Redbox take notice recently when the movie renting public retaliated against Netflix for making price changes?
In what has been a "quiet" announcement, the dollar priced movie rentals are now a thing of the past for Redbox as the kiosk vending movie rental machines are now charging $1.20 per night.
Here is the official word from Redbox:
Starting on Monday, October 31, the daily rental charge for DVDs will change to $1.20 a day. The price change is due to rising operating expenses, including new increases in debit card fees. Daily rental charges for Blu-ray™ Discs and video games won't change. Additional-day charges for DVDs rented before 10/31 won't be affected, either.
In order to make the transition easier, Redbox will discount the first day of all online DVD rentals to $1.00 from 10/31 through 11/30. Additional rental days will be $1.20.

The final word will be from the renting public.
Will you pay a little more for Redbox?
