How RedroomDVD makes money
I LOVE Redroom DVD, especially for their free Tuesday deals (where you usually can get their coupon codes on OzBargain). One of their kiosk machine is within 10 minutes of walking distance from my place, and 1 DVD is probably the maximum I can watch these days due to general busyness.
It did make me wonder sometimes, that how Redroom DVD can be sustainable with some many cheapskates like me. Maybe I have overestimate the percentage of cheapskates in Australia (which means a lot of work to do here at OzBargain to convert them :) Or maybe they do make money from those at OzBargain, sometimes…
You see. I have been using Redroom DVD for quite a few times now and have never paid them a cent (they do have my credit card details)… Except yesterday. Being a cheapskate does not mean you are immune from forgetfulness. Borrowed The Social Network on Tuesday (great movie by the way), intended to return it on the next day, but only remembered at 7:15PM on Wednesday!
So there you go — $2.99 to Redroom DVD for being forgetful. Well worth it though for how much I have enjoyed their deals so far.
