I read about these a few weeks ago, and just saw a little bit more information on them yesterday.
The kiosks are operated by e-play (www.e-play.com) – a company operating in the US and Canada – and they allow the rental of DVDs and games, a lot like Redbox and other kiosk operators. One thing that makes them stand out, though, is that they also allow “trade-ins” at many of their locations. You can trade your movies or games for cash or store credit.
I have read quite a few complaints about how well they work (not as easy to use as Redbox), but it is definitely an interesting business, and one that could cut in to Redbox’s profits if Walmart decided to dump them for their own kiosks across the country.
Have any of you seen these kiosks in your area? Have you used them? What do you think?
