Submission + - Redbox DVD daily increase

SatanClauz writes: Just got this email:

New Daily DVD Rental Price

Redbox is making an announcement about its prices today, and we want to make sure that you hear it from us first.

Starting on Monday, October 31, the daily rental charge for DVDs will change to $1.20 a day.* The price change is due to rising operating expenses, including new increases in debit card fees. Daily rental charges for Blu-ray Discs and video games won't change.** Additional-day charges for DVDs rented before 10/31 won't be affected, either.

In order to make the transition easier, Redbox will discount the first day of all online DVD rentals to $1.00 from 10/31 through 11/30. Additional rental days will be $1.20.***

If you have any questions, please visit There, we've provided additional information.

This marks our first price change in more than eight years as we work hard to keep prices low for our customers.

Thank you,


*Daily rental charge will be $1.27 in Maryland.
**Maryland pricing for Blu-ray and games: $1.59 a day for Blu-ray; $2.12 a day for games.
***Maryland pricing for online reservations: $1.00 the first day, $1.27 for additional days. May not combine offers. Normal rental fees apply after first day.

Those alt+mouse button ones sound very useful.

I tried making a script with AutoHotKey for those but it wasn't working for me. I'm not really good with it but it can probably be done. - give it a shot! and if you are able to make it I hope you remember this thread and share :)

I almost flattened a guy when he decided to go straight between two turn lanes on his bike. Luckily, I pride myself in being aware of my surroundings when i'm behind the wheel and he got to keep his ability to walk that day. Riding between cars because traffic is backed up is dumb to begin with, but compound that with going straight between two turn lanes? .....
