Redbox Price Increases: BD - $2, DVD - $1.50, Games - $3

Redbox has announced that they're raising their prices:

Starting December 2, the price for DVDs will increase 30¢ to $1.50 a day, and the price for Blu-ray™ Discs will increase 50¢ to $2 a day. Starting January 6, the price for video games will increase $1 to $3 a day.
With the increase in free codes popping up, it's been a while since I've paid for a rental from Redbox. That's probably the reason for the price increase.

I hope with the increase, they can start adding TV series.

It may not seem like much, but it is enough to push them over the threshold. My local video store is a better value and more convenient. They have pulled the Redbox out of our town and the one from the grocery store we frequent. Even most of my free codes go unused anymore.

$2 prices me out. One can buy the UV codes for about that and own it forever.

Yep. Between the gas required and standing in line behind idiots who either can't decide what to rent or don't know how to use the machine, that's it for me.
