WFMW: Inexpensive Movie Rentals

My husband and I were at Safeway the other day and noticed that by the door they have a movie rental machine. It's only $1.49 for one day ($.99 on Mondays)! It only carries new releases, but that's all my husband and I usually pick up at the video rental store because we have Dish Network and can watch older movies on TV. I don't mind that it's only 1 days, either, because usually if we go to rent a movie, we watch it that night any way.

We haven't actually tried it yet, but it looks like you just put in your money and the movie pops out of a slot, by close the next day, you return the movie into the slot. It seems like a lot more reasonable than the $3.79 that Blockbuster is charging these days! I think that Safeway is affiliated with Vons, so maybe check out Vons and see if they have them as well.

I don't know if you have Redbox where you live, but we use that all the time. It's $1.00 plus tax per night, and they use your credit card. Go to their website for a free one-night rental coupon code.

A few grocery stores have kiosks, but their selection is usually rather pitiful. The Redbox machines at McDonald's locations often have more of the movies I want to watch.
