Recently I have been thinking about something that I have received many questions about over the past year, and I wanted to address it directly. Is something I probably should have done a long time ago, but just haven’t. And, along with this comes a special program I have put together that I need your help with. More on that in a minute…
I think I will be changing up the format of my posts a bit, as well as possibly the frequency. I think I am going to write a post whenever there is some news to report, and then refer back to it in my weekly recap. Also, if you hear any news that I haven’t written about, send it my way by emailing “mail [at] insideredbox.com”.
This week I learned about another company similar to Redbox, that is actually just as big as Redbox. They are in mostly different markets, but have just as many kiosks. And, guess what, they have promo codes, too…
[I was going to tell you more about this company here, but I don’t want to take away from the important message I have below. So, look out for more information about this company in a few days. In the meantime, make sure you keep reading below…]
OK, so a question I get asked a lot is “Where do these Redbox codes come from anyway?” Well, that is a good question, and it deserves a good answer…
Many people think Redbox codes come from Redbox (well, duh). But, they may come in a different way than you think. You see, Redbox just doesn’t give out codes to random people and that is how they end up on our site, but they actually put codes in their system that they don’t tell anyone about, and we get to discover them. Its a lot like an Easter egg hunt for free movies…
So, obviously the more people that try new codes, the more codes we are going to have to use. And, of course, the way for more people to try more codes, is for more people to know that they need to! So, what can you do about this?
1) You can try more codes yourself. Think of things related to the season, or to recent movies, events, etc… All of these are good candidates for Redbox codes. And then, next time you are down at the Redbox, try a few.
2) You can tell more people about InsideRedbox.com The more people that come to this site, the more free codes we are going to get. They will read this message, and do what you are doing, and therefore more free movies for everyone! Read “Know the Codes?” below for more info…
Now, some people ask me if this is illegal or something. That maybe Redbox doesn’t like us sharing codes, and that we are stealing DVDs. Let me just say, that Redbox loves all the publicity they can get, and giving out free codes is sure a great way to get more people using your service. If they didn’t want people getting free movies, they would stop creating codes!

KNOW THE CODES?
So, because we all want more free movies, and Redbox wants more people to use their service, I am creating what I call the “Know the Codes” program. You love free stuff, right? So do your friends and neighbors. And, remember, if more people know about testing codes, we will all get more free movies.
So, how does this work, you ask? There are 2 simple ways you can participate in the “Know the Codes” program…
1) Tell people directly. This is easy enough. Call a friend. Tell your neighbor when you see them. Tell someone standing in line at the Redbox. Send out a few emails.
Just tell them to visit InsideRedbox.com, and let the website do the rest. These are all great ways to get the word out to people directly. And, #2 is even better…
2) Use the “Know the Codes” card. I have just created a cool little card you can stick on your local Redbox to let everyone who uses it know about our cool free movie club we have going here. You can simply print it, cut it out, and stick it on the Redbox, or you can write the short note on a 3×5 card (or whatever you want, really) and stick it on there. Whatever is easier for you.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I anticipate a lot of comments/questions about what I have written above, so instead of the usual question, just leave a comment letting me know what you think about the “Know the Codes” program. I really want to hear from you.

So, that is it for this week. I know it was a long update, but there was a lot to say. I look forward to hearing from you, and to all of us getting more free movies in the future!
May your 2007 be great!
