Save Money on DVD Rentals. Instead of renting DVDs from video stores like Blockbuster, rent DVDs at a Redbox kiosk located at stores such as ACME, Safeway, and Wal-Mart. Why? Redbox charges $1/night vs. the video store’s $4.50 for 2-7 days. If you frequently rent movies, you can save a few hundred dollars a year just by renting DVDs from Redbox and returning the movies within the 24-hour time period (MSN/S. Cole).
