Have you seen or rented movies from a Redbox yet? They are those giant red machines in Krogers that have a computer screen for renting movies. Pretty cheap in fact, just $1 per day!
|I was very excited about the movie G-Force (Redbox||IMDB) coming out in the Redbox yesterday (12/15/09). So during the day I was randomly searching online about Redbox, to make sure it was actually the day that the movie was available.|
In my searching I found the following site: http://www.insideredbox.com/redbox-codes/
InsiderRedbox is not related to the official Redbox at all. In contrast it is actually quite the opposite. InsiderRedbox is a community that posts coupon codes (or promo codes) for Redbox rentals. When I went to Kroger tonight I tried out the code: ACME26 and what do ya know, it worked! Free rental!
Apparently, Redbox keeps track of coupon codes by each card used in a transaction. So if I have three different cards that I could swipe for a normal Redbox transaction, I could use that same ACME26 coupon code with each card and receive three free rentals! Amazing!
Needless to say, I was pretty excited about this find. Now the question, however, is is getting all these free DVD rentals really worth cheaping out on something that is good? Paying $1/day for a DVD rental is awesome and I wouldn’t want Redbox to go out of business or raise prices just because people like me are working the system.
Not sure where I’ll go on that one, but I had to share (at least for those of you that may have lost your conscience back down the road somewhere).
Happy movie watching!
|PS. G-Force ROCKS! Next on my list is Inglorious Basterds (Redbox||IMDB).|
