A few weeks ago Redbox ran this promo where you text 727272 every day for 10 days and they send you promo codes. Some were for free rentals and some were for $0.50 off your rental. I texted from my personal cell phone, my work cell phone, and my husbands cell. So, I had a log of rental codes to use. They all expired on 9/14 so I had 10 days to use them. This is one of the many reasons why I love Redbox. They're very generous!
Here are my tips to using Redbox. Most of you probably already know how it works. For those that have not used Redbox yet, I hope these help you!
- The rent 1 get 1 promo codes can be used for ONE rental only. Thus making your movie FREE. Must be a DVD. For bluray, you'll be paying $0.31 for the rental with a free code.
-When using free rental codes, the trick is to return the the rentals ON TIME to avoid being charged.
- Rental periods begin the moment you RESERVE your movie. Not when you pick them up.
- Rentals are NOT 24 hours. They are due back by 9 pm the FOLLOWING evening.
-If you reserve your movie at 11:59 pm tonight (Tuesday), the movie will be due back Wednesday at 9:00 pm.
-If you reserve your movie at 12:01 am Wednesday morning, the movie will be due back Thursday at 9:00 pm.
-You can return your rental at ANY Redbox Kiosk. After you're done watching your movie, carry it with you. You can return it anywhere.
-Sign up for their emails and/or text notifications. They send out promo codes from time to time.
-Create multiple Redbox accounts using your different email addresses. You can use their special promo codes on more than one account. For example, they had a free rental code SEPT22 yesterday. I have three accounts and got my 3 rentals for free. This only works on those codes. The one time use only codes is just that. Good for one free rental, period.
I hope these tips help. Never pay for a movie rental again! Enjoy!
