Transmission-Replace or rebuild?

I drained the trans fluid and replaced the filter, did not do a true flush. Trans still slips and I am worried that she will leave me stranded. I can get a reman transmission for $700. Do i get mine rebuilt or do I just swap a reman back in. I don't think I can tackle this in the driveway even though I have access to all the tools required.
What is the prevailing thought out there on replace or rebuild and does anyone have a ballpark price on labor for a replacement vs a rebuild. I am in the greater Philadelphia area

Try adjusting the bands first, I did mine with no previous knowledge.

Add a can of STP engine oil treatment to the trans. It made the shifts in mine much more solid.
