The No Questions Asked DVD Drop-Off

BELLEVUE, WA - I put the DVD in the return slot of the rental kiosk outside the 7-11 and waited for the machine to approve. But the damn kiosk refused the disk. So I tried it again, and a third time before I madly jabbed the help button for the 800 number.

I was standing outside on my phone. Sanjay told me to ignore the rejected disk for a few minutes. Says the machine will eventually store the DVD if it thinks nobody's there.

He also said I might see a stray charge on my credit card. A month later there was a $40 charge. I was not happy.

When I called Redbox to protest, they never heard of me and had no record of any rental. I provided my card, my phone, and the transaction details on my bill.

At this point, customer service explained that DVDXpress was not affiliated in any way with Redbox. I had returned the DVD to the wrong company.
