Latest and Greatest

Finally Redbox has made it's way to East Peoria.

What is Redbox? Well it's one of those ideas that makes you go "DOH! I can't believe I didn't think of it!"

It's a movie rental service....totally self service! You sign up for an account online using a credit card/debit card. Locate a nearby Redbox that has your movie and reserve it. When you get to the location, it's like vending machine/kiosk. Swipe the card you used to reserve the movie and the movie is dispensed. You can return the movie to the location you picked it up at OR at any other RedBox location.

Best part? It's $1.00. If you end up keep it an extra day, it's just another $1.00.

So you can pick up a movie locally, take it on the road and drop it off at your destination.

Very cool.

My folks and siblings have been using RedBox all summer. I'm pretty stoked it's made it's way here. Most of the boxes are located at Wal-Marts or grocery stores. I've heard that they also have them at some McDonald's.
