The company also announced that effective October 31, 2011, the price for renting a redbox standard definition DVD would increase to a $1.20 daily rate from $1.00. The prices for Blu-ray format movie rentals and for video game rentals will not change and the daily rates will continue to be $1.50 and $2.00, respectively.
“We remain committed to providing redbox consumers access to the latest movies at an incredible value,” said Davis. “This marks the first price increase for a redbox standard definition DVD rental in eight years. The change is primarily due to the increase in operating expenses, including the recent increase in debit card interchange fees as a result of the Durbin Amendment.”
In order to make the transition easier, Redbox will discount the first day of all online DVD rentals to $1.00 from 10/31 through 11/30. Additional rental days will be $1.20.***
