Unless the Redbox dvd magically appears in your hand it is impossible for it to cost a $1. I doubt many people have a redbox close enough to walk to so I dont understand how people continuously leave out the cost of going to get one when they are directly comparing the price to netflix.
You cant knock/compare/talk about netflix for increasing their price due to postage and then conveniently leave out the prices of gas when going to get a redbox movie. The fact of the matter is it cost roughly 3 or 4 bucks (depending on location) and takes 10-20 min to get a redbox dvd.
I dont know why I am a stickler for this...but it reminds me of a sleezy salesman who is trying to convenice me that a item that cost $7,999.99 is a much better deal than an item that cost 8,000.
For our last discussion when I worked it out the nearest redbox for me was 5 miles = 20miles round trip, my car gets 24 mpg..total cost around 3.80 for gas 1 buck for redbox = $4.80ish and roughly 24min of drive time.
I am not even knocking redbox I just want the truth to be told when talking about it.
