DVD Kiosks at Safeway

Anyone used it ? Seems like a great deal for $1.79 rentals. Was scrolling through and they are new releases and a selection of older movies. It doesn't tell you if the movie is in stock or not though... Wonder if there are hidden charges.

Looks like this:

They have two inserts. One that gives you the dvd the other that accepts it. The top one will receive the DVD for return and the bottom will dispense your DVD.

We had a Kiosk in our store for about 6 months. With ours you were charged every day it was late and after 20 days it was yours to keep.

I gave it a try last night. It spits out a DVD stored in a mini square case with the barcode exposed. Kind of works like an ATM. The bar code is printed on the DVD disc. When you return the disc, it will scan the DVD bar code. With taxes, it is $2 even for a new release. I think Rogers charges $5.99 for new release!

They have new releases for sure and a small selection of old movies. I think the machine is more focused on new releases. I will get another movie tonight.

When did you see this price? It was $5.99 just a few weeks ago at Rogers. The old movies are 3 for $9 for rental.

I'm kind of choked that they don't accept debit cards as that would make is so much more accessible for folks still in highschool/early post secondary.

The problem is that with a debit card they can't charge you later if you don't return the movie.

haha yup. Great deal but free downloads is greater. I wonder how retail video stores are doing now since downloading and renting online has increased.

that's why i'd still rent the odd blu-ray movie..but not frequently cause most store still has a small collection (newly releases only has a few copies unlike DVDs)
