Rock-bottom movie rentals for as little as 4 cents an hour
Of course, if you keep the rental overnight, you'll be paying as much or more than Redbox. At 4 cents an hour, a 24-hour rental adds up to 96 cents. At 6 cents an hour, you'll pay $1.44 for a full day.
Current titles include "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," "Julie and Julia," and "Public Enemies."
To rent from BigBox you'll need a credit card. The way it works is that you buy credits that are then deducted as your DVD sits around your house waiting to be returned. You must have a minimum of $1 on your account to rent. You can't return a disc unless you have enough credits to pay for it. Sneaky!
BigBox gives a 10% bonus in rental credits if you buy $10 to $20 of credits up front.
Sounds pretty good, huh? The bad news is that BigBox only has locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Doh!
