I couldn’t believe it…when Amy was here last we were wondering through the Safeway here in SF (on Townsend and 4th I think) and they had a DVD machine. The best part was, you swipe your card and for only $1.49 it would spit movies out! If I remember correctly it only had about 30 movies to select from for $1.49 each. You get the movie for 24 hours, and its $1.00 for each additional day.
Needless to say, we rented a handfull of movies and did not have to pay the $10+ per person to go to the movies. With the swipe of a credit card, no memberships required, we had an evenings worth of entertainment that only required me to walk by the grocery store the next day (by midnight) and push the dvd cases back into the machine.
