So I guess it's old news by now that Redbox has increased their rental price to $1.20, instead of a flat $1.00. I had no idea about this increase until yesterday when I went to rent a movie online. Seriously? .20 extra cents? May not seem like much, but if you rent one movie a week that adds up to an extra $10.40 out of your pocket. You could have bought yourself so many jelly beans with that $10!
My other problem with the increase is, once a company gets away with one price increase, they don't stop. .44 cent stamp anyone (oh and that is increasing to .45 cents in January)? It's the whole give an inch, take a mile thing, that my 3 year old is so proficent with. Before you know it Redbox will be $1.50, then $2.00, then new releases will start costing more, etc, and before you know it Redbox is just Blockbuster in a red box.
