Has anyone ever heard of Redbox? This is something new around here. I just discovered it Monday during a shopping trip to Walmart. It's a vending machine where you can rent DVD's for $1 a night. I knew Hailey would be home the next day as well since she still had a fever so I let her pick out a DVD to rent. It only took a minute to do, it was so easy! And I'm loving that it's only $1...that way if she doesn't like the movie, who cares! I'm only out a buck! She rented some computer animated Farm Kids movie that night and sort of liked it. She actually watched the whole thing. Last night to get her out of the house I took her to the Dollar Tree (she loves that store...and I found the cutest little kid's craft aprons there, and they're machine washable and everything...for $1!! I love that store too!) and then to Walmart to return her farm movie and check out another one to watch that night. She wanted that Snow Buddies movie or whatever it's called, but they didn't have it in the machine. Bummer :( So we got Mr. Magorium instead and she didn't like it. Another bummer! :( I'm going to take it back on the way home tonight. I thought it was okay, sort of weird the way it ended though.
I went to the Redbox website this morning and put in my email address. They sent me a promo code for a free rental!! I'm really excited about this and hope it does well enough for Walmart to keep it. (Apparently there's one at every Walmart in town and at the HyVee grocery store also!) Friday night on our way out of town to the Lake we're going to stop and rent a couple movies. It'll only be 4$ to keep two movies for the weekend! Awesome!
