Soaring above their initial expectations, modern vending machines can distribute practically anything, from candy to clothing to tinier vending machines that stock antimatter and baby corn. Celebrate the evolution of self-served success with today’s Groupon: for $1, you get three one-night DVD rentals from redbox (a $3 value).
Redbox boasts almost 25,000 video vending machines nationwide, each carrying approximately 630 DVDs, including up to 200 new releases. These shiny red beacons of home entertainment can be found in and around grocery stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, and other common places that citizens frequent on a day-to-day basis. To redeem this Groupon, customers will simply input their Groupon rental code using the redbox touch screen, and then take home the hottest blockbusters and tearjerkers. Nearly all Redbox titles have been released within the past six months and new releases are made available every Tuesday. Current small-screen offerings include The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Shrek Forever After, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Groupon users will be required to swipe their credit or debit card during each redbox rental, but they will only be charged if rentals are not returned by the generous due date (9 p.m. on the next day). To make the process even breezier, DVDs can be returned to any redbox location, including locations proximate to wind tunnels.
Redbox offers a free rental credit for first-time clients who register online; however, this Groupon still represents the best deal available for all customers.
