Redbox Codes beta page

I am working on a new Redbox codes page to go along with the new year. I have been taking into account the many suggestions I have received from you, and would love some feedback.

The new page currently breaks codes down into a list of ALL CODES, as well as by MARKET.

In addition, the database will now handle codes that are no longer working, so getting your free dvd rental will be an easier experience.

Just report when you tried the code, just like you normally do, but select “Not working” from the drop-down list instead. I am working on the best way to report non-working codes, and would welcome any suggestions.

So, you can click here to see the Redbox Codes beta page, or just visit the regular Redbox Codes page and follow the link there…

Happy New Year to you all!

Redbox In Las Vegas

So, I have spent the last few weeks in Las Vegas with family, and had my first experience using a Redbox down here.

It is a different experience renting a dvd here, as the Redbox kiosk is different from the ones I have used in Salt Lake. I should clarify and say that the Redbox I personally used (inside a Smith’s grocery store) was different. The machine is much less sophisticated, doesn’t offer the ability to use promo codes for free dvd rentals, doesn’t email receipts, etc… Also, I noticed that the new releases don’t get here for quite some time, as ‘The Island’ and ‘Bad News Bears’ just arrived yesterday.

Anyway, this got me thinking if there are many different types of Redbox kiosks out there… So, let me know what your Redbox looks like. I am assuming the standard one is like the one in the picture at the top of this page. If yours is different, let us know.

When I get back to Salt Lake next week, I will be giving more information.

Also, thanks to all of you who are posting free dvd rental codes. There are now over 25 codes posted in the Redbox codes section. So, make sure you bookmark this site and get as many free rentals as possible.

Redbox Codes section now up…

OK, so I spent a little bit of time adding the “Redbox Codes” section to the site today. You can check it out by clicking on Redbox Codes in the links section of this site.

It is still under construction, but it provides some useful functionality as-is.

So, if you love Redbox and need your DVD rental fix as often as I do, start finding and sharing Redbox Codes right here!

Also, please feel free to leave comments or questions, and I will address them as needed.

New DVD Rental Releases for Dec 6, 2005

There are a few new dvd releases coming this week to a Redbox near you… Cinderella Man, Fantastic Four, Dukes of Hazzard, Snurks and Dirty Love.

A few notes:

First up, “Cinderella Man” with Russell Crowe playing folk hero James J. Braddock warming hearts in Depression-era New York by fighting his way—against all odds—into a boxing championship against the “unbeatable” Max Baer. Then it’s Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben stretching, force fielding, flaming and smashing their way into your DVD player and out your screen in “Fantastic Four.”

I haven’t seen any of these movies yet, but I am definitely going to check out Cinderella Man, Fantastic Four and Snurks.

McDonald’s has just annouced their new “Arch Card”. It seems to be a prepaid card for food purchases – and Redbox rentals – at McDonald’s. It looks like they will use this to replace McDonald’s gift certificates…

The release (which I received in my email box) says that when you purchase one of these cards, you get a free one night Redbox rental. Offer is currently good in Houston, Denver and Salt Lake City areas, and it expires on December 26, 2005.

So, if you are a McDonald’s-goer, it is a no-brainer to pick up one of these and get your free rental.
