Redbox has again modified the way their billing system works…
Now, when you rent a DVD, you are immediately charged $1 for the first day’s rental. Then, if you return it by 9pm the next day, you are not billed again.
If you keep the DVD for more than one day, you will be billed for the extra days when it is returned.
They say that they did this “to reduce temporary holds on your credit or debit card and make it easier for you to track changes.”
I am pretty sure they will still use temporary holds when a promo code is used, however, so nothing will be changing there.
You can read the full announcement on the Redbox website.
