Is Redbox Going Out Of Business?

Is owning a Redbox profitable?

Redbox kiosks are extremely profitable and managing a DVD kiosk business requires very little time.

The movie rental kiosk business can be very profitable and if a Redbox franchise existed with that type of profitability, it would be one of the most profitable franchise opportunities of all time.

How long will Redbox last?

For each day you keep a rental, you’ll be charged for another rental period + applicable tax. If you hold onto your disc for the maximum rental period (almost everywhere, it’s 17 days for movies and 23 days for games), you’ll be charged the maximum charge and the disc is yours to keep.

How much is a Redbox late fee?

In most areas, those fees are $25 + tax for DVDs, $34 + tax for Blu-ray™ Discs and $69 + tax for video games. Redbox does not have “late” fees, you just pay every day you have the disc out.
