So how do I get free movies? Once you have selected a movie it will prompt you for a "promo code" type one in if you have one and then you just follow the onscreen prompts and out pops your free movie.
After my first use, I found out they pretty much send you a free movie promo code as often as once a week and if not that, they'll send a 2 for 1 code. Sometimes you don't even need to buy the 2nd movie to get that 2 for 1 promo code to work. Each code is good for one credit card so if you want to rent multiple movies for free you can use the same code on multiple credit cards.
Here's some freebie codes valid for June 2015:
*note: text the words in quoates
- Text the code "e3" to 727272 to get a free Redbox code valid for a free game rental.
- Text "WELCOME" to 727272 to get a code for a free movie rental. This can only be used when reserving a movie with the Redbox app
- Text "APPNOW" to 727272 to get a free rental on your first use of the Redbox mobile app
- Text "EMAIL" to 727272 to get a free movie rental and reply back with your email. The promo code will be sent to your email.
- Text "Movie" to 727272 to get a free or discounted movie rental
- Text "DVDONME" to 727272 to get a free movie rental for new customers
Here are more ways to get codes:
1) Become Facebook fan of Redbox. - They give out a lot of free codes on facebook. If you have a lot of credit cards... That's a lot of free movies!
2) Join the Redbox Text Club. - A few times a month they send out discount codes and the occasional freebie.
3) Join Redbox Play Pass. - This is a rewards program that gives you a free rental on your birthday. Plus you can accumulate points (100) that can get you a free rental. You even get points for the discs you rented for free.
4) Sign up for Redbox Emails. - Go to the Redbox website and sign up for their emails. Confirm your email address and they will send you a promo code.
In the end tho, for around a $1-2.00, using Redbox without the promo codes is still an excellent way to save money especially if you've always rented movies the conventional way for 4-6 bucks a movie.
