    I used Redbox for the first time during a car route between Baton Rouge, LA and Indianapolis. I picked up a movie at a McDonald’s and then had a very hard time finding another location to return it. I think I stopped at every McDonald’s between Nashville and BR without any success. I finally found a box in Baton Rouge.

    Is it not possible to get McDonald’s or any other vendor who has Interstate billboards to list on its billboards that they are a Redbox site?? Based on my first and last experience, I don’t think this will be something I repeat until it becomes a little more user-friendly.

    Great idea, great price…it is just not fun to go exit hopping looking for a return site, especially when you are facing a 1000 journey.

    Hope this helps,
