Rental Terms and Conditions

Effective Date: June 2, 2014


WHAT ARE THESE RENTAL TERMS?

These rental terms are brought to you by Redbox Automated Retail, LLC (doing business in Texas as DVD Rental by Redbox LLC), which we call “Redbox.”  They explain the rules for renting items from a Redbox kiosk (which we call “Redbox Transactions”).

These rental terms are part of the Redbox Terms of Use and you agree to these rental terms and the Terms of Use each time you enter into a Redbox Transaction.  IMPORTANT: These rental terms or the Terms of Use, including what, how and when we charge for a Redbox Transaction, may have changed since the last time you rented or otherwise transacted with Redbox, so remember to check them prior to each rental or other transaction.  Please also read the Redbox Privacy Policy, which explains Redbox’s information collection practices, such as the types of information Redbox collects and how Redbox may use that information.

FOR MARYLAND RENTAL TRANSACTIONS:  FOR ANY RENTALS WHERE THE RENTED ITEM IS TO BE PICKED UP AT A KIOSK IN MARYLAND, THE CHARGES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR RENTAL WILL BE STATED AT THE TIME OF YOUR RENTAL (WHETHER AT THE KIOSK OR RESERVING ONLINE OR VIA MOBILE APPLICATION).  NO TAX WILL BE ADDED TO THOSE STATED CHARGES.  THEREFORE, ANY REFERENCE TO “PLUS APPLICABLE TAX” OR “PLUS TAX” IN THESE RENTAL TERMS DO NOT APPLY TO THOSE REDBOX TRANSACTIONS.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK WHEN I RENT AN ITEM FROM REDBOX?

  1. Each item you rent from Redbox has a minimum rental period of one day.  That one day minimum rental period is measured from the time you first receive your rental through 9:00 p.m. the next day – unless we tell you differently at the kiosk or otherwise before you rent.  Please remember to account for differing time zones if you rent and return your rental at Redbox kiosks in different time zones.  Each item you can rent has a daily rental charge, which may vary from kiosk to kiosk.  To incur a single daily rental charge, you must return your rental by 9:00 p.m. the next day in the time zone where you return your rental.  For example, if the daily rental charge for a DVD is $1.20, you will be charged only $1.20, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), if you rent a DVD at any time on Tuesday before midnight and return it the next day (Wednesday) by 9:00 p.m. local time at the kiosk where you return your item.
  2. Then, for each additional day you do not return an item by 9:00 p.m. local time, your rental continues and you will be charged an additional daily rental charge, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), for each item. Many Redbox kiosks have DVDs available for rent for $1.20 per day, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), so if you keep that DVD for the one-day minimum rental period and return it two days later by 9:00 p.m. local time, you will be charged $3.60 plus applicable taxes (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged). For example, if you rent a DVD on Tuesday but do not return it until the immediately following Friday at 6:00 p.m., you would be charged the daily rental charge for the first day, plus two additional daily rental charges, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  If the daily rental charge is $1.20, you would pay a total of $3.60, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  If you returned the DVD after 9 p.m. on Friday but on or before 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, you would incur another daily rental charge, for a total of $4.80, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  And so on.
  3. For some items, the daily rental charge for the minimum rental period (one day) may be different than it is for each additional day the item is not returned.  For example, the daily rental charge could be $3 for the minimum rental period and $1 each additional day.  In that case, if you keep that DVD for the one-day minimum rental period and return it two days later by 9:00 p.m. local time, you will be charged $5, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).   
  4. Each item you rent from Redbox also has a maximum rental period as disclosed at the kiosk screen before you pay.
  5. If you keep an item through the maximum rental period, that item is yours to keep and Redbox will charge you the maximum charge for that item. The maximum charge varies depending on the type of item you are renting and the daily rental charge(s) for the item. For example, if a DVD’s daily rental charge is $1.20 and its maximum charge is $25.20, then the maximum rental period for that DVD (before you own it and owe $25.20 (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged)) is 21 days.  Therefore, for many items, the maximum charge is equal to the daily rental charge multiplied by the number of days in the maximum rental period plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  See the examples in the chart below.  However, if an item’s rental charge for the minimum rental period (i.e., the first day of rental) is different from the daily rental charge for each additional day, the maximum rental period will be shorter than for other items because the maximum charge will be reached faster.  For example, if a DVD’s daily rental charge for the minimum rental period is $3 and then $1 for each additional day and the maximum charge for that DVD is $25 plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), then the maximum rental period for that DVD is 23 days (i.e., $25 was reached on day 23 because you owe $3.00 for the first daily rental charge and then $1.00 a day for all additional days).
  6. Redbox kiosk screens will display the daily rental charges and maximum rental periods for your rentals.  Below is an example of daily rental charges (excluding tax), maximum rental periods, and the resulting maximum charges that may apply at your kiosk for some items.  Charges and rental periods may vary by kiosk.  Also, charges may change from time to time, so please carefully review the pricing and rental information displayed on screen each time you rent from us. Additionally, you can call us at 1.866.REDBOX3 (1.866.733.2693) with any questions.

  1. The number of items you may rent at a given time is subject to Redbox’s discretion. For instance, if you are a first time customer, you may not be allowed to rent as many items during your first transaction as a returning customer.
  2. If you reserve an item online, via a mobile device, or through another Redbox platform, your rental begins to run at that point.  We will hold your reserved item at the selected kiosk until 9:00 p.m. local time (at the kiosk) the day after you place your reservation.  So, for example, if you reserve an item online on Tuesday before midnight and return it before 9:00 p.m. local time (at the kiosk) the day after you place your reservation, you will be charged the daily rental charge, plus applicable tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  If you pick up your reserved item on the next day (Wednesday) and return it on Thursday by 9:00 p.m., you would incur two daily rental charges, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  If you never pick up your reserved item, you will be charged for one daily rental charge, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).  This charge is in consideration of our holding the item for you and not releasing it for rental to another customer.  Note that placing an item in your “cart” does not mean it is reserved – it is possible that someone else can complete a reservation transaction for the same item at the same kiosk before you complete your reservation.  You must complete the reservation transaction (including payment card authorization) before your reservation is secured.  If you do not reserve an item, then it may or may not be available for rental at a kiosk at any given time.  We make no guarantee that an item will be available for rental at any kiosk at any given time.  Your rental reservation is only valid at the kiosk for which you made the reservation and is non-transferable.
  3. Each time you rent from Redbox, it is considered a single transaction regardless of how long your rental lasts or how many items you rent. You can terminate a rental transaction at any time by returning the rented items, or by keeping the items through the maximum rental period, so long as you pay the accrued daily rental charge(s), plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).

 


If you believe you rented a defective item from us, please call customer service right away at 1.866.REDBOX3 (1.866.733.2693). Otherwise we will assume that the defect occurred during your rental.  YOU AGREE THAT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR A DEFECTIVE RENTAL IS A SUBSTITUTE RENTAL OF EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE FOR THE SAME TYPE OF ITEM, AND REDBOX’S LIABILITY IS FURTHER LIMITED AS DETAILED IN THE TERMS OF USE. If an item is returned damaged, as determined by Redbox in its sole and absolute discretion, we reserve the right to assess and charge your payment card for additional fees in an amount, together with all applicable rental charge(s), not to exceed the maximum charge for that item.

WHEN AM I CHARGED FOR RENTALS?

  1. At the time of rental or reservation, Redbox will seek an authorization from your payment card company equal to one daily rental charge for each item, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged).
  2. You authorize Redbox to process charges on your payment card for all daily rental charges, plus tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), incurred based on the length of your rental.  Presently, all daily rental charges and taxes (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged) are processed at the time you return your rental – but if you rent multiple items from Redbox at the same time, all rental charges and taxes (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged) you owe based on the length of your rental of each item will be processed for all items when the final item is returned to a Redbox kiosk (or, if you do not return all items, at the end of the last maximum rental period for the unreturned item(s)).  Redbox reserves the right to process rental charges and taxes (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged) on a more frequent basis.
  3. Note that if you purchase an item at the same time you rent an item, you will be charged for your purchase and rental at the time you return your rental (or, if you do not return your rented item, at the end of the maximum rental period for the rented item).  
  4. If your payment card is declined, we have the right to collect all past due charges from you and we reserve the right to charge you interest for overdue charges at the then-highest current rate allowed by law.

 

WHAT ARE PROMOTION CODES AND REDBOX CREDITS??

Promotion codes and Redbox Credits are promotional offers from Redbox that provide a discount or a free day’s rental of a certain item (for its minimum rental period).  Only Redbox and others expressly authorized by Redbox may distribute promotion codes and Redbox Credits.  Each of these promotional offers is subject to the terms and conditions disclosed in connection with or on the offer.  Unless the terms in the applicable offer state otherwise, the following applies to all promotion codes and Redbox Credits: (a) Your payment card is necessary to redeem your promotion code or Redbox Credit and will be charged for all charges (plus applicable tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged)) not covered by the promotion code used or Redbox Credit(s) available based on the length of your rental or number of items rented; and (b) Promotion codes and Redbox Credits are not transferable, are not for resale or auction, cannot be combined with other offers, cannot be redeemed for cash, and cannot be used as part of a promotion or otherwise offered without Redbox’s prior written permission.  Unless the terms in the applicable offer state otherwise, the following applies to all promotion codes: (a) Limit 1 promotion code per Redbox Transaction; and (b) Promotion code applies to only 1 item per Redbox Transaction.  We reserve the right to terminate a promotion code or Redbox Credit at any time. If you have an outstanding, unpaid balance with Redbox or have a prior history of abuse, you may not be eligible to use a promotion code or Redbox Credit, as determined in Redbox’s sole discretion.

Unless the terms in the applicable offer state otherwise, the following applies to use of any credit (as opposed to a promotion code): You must have or register for an online Redbox account to receive credits.  Credits may only be used for items and as described in connection with the offer.  Once you select the “USE CREDITS” or similar button at the kiosk and swipe the payment card associated with your online Redbox account at checkout, your credit or credits will be applied to your Rental Transaction for qualifying item or items.  If you rent multiple qualifying items in one Rental Transaction or rent a single qualifying item for multiple days, credits will be applied automatically until your account has no more credits or you return the item or items.  Your payment card (necessary for any rental) will be charged the full daily rental rate for any additional items not covered by the credit or credits in your account, plus applicable tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions for which additional tax is not charged), and, once your credit or credits are depleted, your payment card will be charged the full daily rental rate(s) plus applicable tax (except for Maryland Rental Transactions) for each day you do not return your rental by 9:00 p.m. local time (at the kiosk). Void where prohibited by law. Credit must not be copied, sold, or otherwise offered. Any other use constitutes fraud and may be prosecuted.  

 

WHAT ARE REDBOX CARDS?

Redbox may offer physical and online gift cards, which are called Redbox Cards.  Use of a Redbox Card is subject to its terms, located here. Except as detailed in the Redbox Card Terms, these Rental Terms apply to the rental or reservation of any item using a Redbox Card.
