Redbox is a company which rents DVDs to customers from automated, self-service kiosks, typically charging $1 per rental. The customer is required to return the DVD the following day and, if the customer fails to do so, the customer is charged a late fee. If the customer is twenty five days late, then the customer is charged the price of the DVD (at which point the customer owns the DVD).
