Redbox spring break survey

I just received an email from Redbox asking me to take a survey about my travel plans for spring break.  It states in the email that you will get a promo code for taking the survey.

I submitted it and there was no code.  Perhaps they will email the code?

Has anyone else taken this survey and got their code?

Earlier today Redbox announced that they will be adding Redbox kiosks in 1800 more Walgreens locations.

From the press release:

[Redbox] announces an agreement with Walgreens to expand the presence of redbox automated DVD rental kiosks to approximately 2,000 Walgreens stores nationwide. Currently available at nearly 250 Walgreens locations, redbox will install kiosks at approximately 1,800 additional Walgreens stores during 2008 and 2009.

The expansion of redbox to Walgreens locations nationwide follows the successful test of the fully-automated $1 per night DVD rental service in Chicago, Houston, Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio-area Walgreens.

This is good news for me, because I have a Walgreens just 1 block from my house.  Now I can be even more lazy and not have to go 2 blocks to Walmart or 3 blocks to McDonald’s and/or Albertsons. :)

How far is your closest Redbox?

If you saw today’s New Releases post, you may have noticed something new: the ability to watch movie trailers.

I added this feature because I am lazy and don’t like to goto multiple sites to figure out if I want to see a new movie or not.

What do you think of this feature? What other features could be added that would make this site better and your life easier?

Leave a comment below and vote on each other’s ideas and I will see what I can do.

ONE EXTRA DAY TO WATCH DVDS!
Redbox had the law passed just for you.

New DVD Releases - Feb 26, 2008

It took a little more glad-handing and baby-kissing than redbox is usually down with, but the intense lobbying has paid off! This year an extra day — the 29th of February — will be added to the calendar just for you to watch movies. Tell your boss you’ll be observing the holiday at home.

Beowulf [watch trailer]
The Middle English classic you refused to read in high school is reborn…as a movie spectacle! Ray Winstone stars as the medieval warrior who has to slay the monster Grendel before it ravages more of the region. Anthony Hopkins and Robin Wright Penn co-star.

30 Days of Night [watch trailer]
The sci-fi creatures keep coming in this modern vampire thriller. Josh Hartnett stars as the sheriff in a small Alaska town (enduring its full month of winter darkness) who has to fight off an onslaught of hungry vampires out to feast on the residents — including the lovely Melissa George.

The Darjeeling Limited [watch trailer]
Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Adrien Brody play three brothers who decide to reconnect and deal with their father’s recent death in the most Wes Anderson way possible: a train ride across India to visit their mom (played by Anjelica Huston).

Barbie Mariposa and Her Butterfly Friends
Something is wrong in Flutterfield! It seems an evil fairy has cast a spell on its queen, and it’s up to Barbie (a beautiful butterfly fairy) and her friends to escape the city and return with an antidote before Flutterfield’s lights burn out one by one.

Bratz: Kidz Fairy Tales
In this CGI kids’ adventure, your favorite Bratz — that’s Cloe, Sasha, Yasmin and Jade, in case you forgot — get zapped into a Fairy Tale Land, where they get to play the roles of Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel and others.

American Gangster [watch trailer]
And from last week, don’t miss this intense game of gangland cat and mouse. Denzel Washington plays a heroin lord in 1970s Manhattan, and Russell Crowe plays the detective who’ll stop at nothing to catch and prosecute him.

Don’t forget that you can find each of these titles online, then pick them up and drop them right back off at you the redbox location near you.

Just a quick post to let everyone know that the Bonus Round rebate was sent out today.  Check your email for details.

Feel free to comment if you have any questions.

NOTHING SAYS ‘I LOVE YOU’
like pizza and a dvd.

Forget chocolate. Forget teddy bears. Forget reservations at pricey restaurants. Grab a DVD you’ll both enjoy and stay in for the night. Happy Valentine’s Day, ya lovebirds

No Reservations
Speaking of fancypants restaurants, the first film features Catherine Zeta-Jones as a renowned chef who is the queen of the kitchen — until she gets custody of her niece (Abigail Breslin) and meets the dashing Aaron Eckhart.

We Own the Night
Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix star as brothers in this movie about cops, crime, and corruption. Wahlberg plays an officer trying to protect his family from the Russian mafia.

Why Did I Get Married?

Perfect this Valentine’s Day! (Innocent whistling.) Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, and Sharon Leal star in this adaptation of Perry’s play about temptation and the trials of marriage.

Gone Baby Gone
Casey Affleck and Michelle Monoghan star in one of the year’s most talked-about movies. It shows the heartbreak and professional struggles of two Boston detectives searching desperately for a missing child.

Becoming Jane

The gorgeous Anne Hathaway stars as a young Jane Austen – before she was famous – learning about life and falling in love with a dashing Irishman (James McAvoy of Atonement).

Martian Child
In this week’s last movie, John Cusack stars as a widowed sci-fi novelist with the opportunity to adopt a six-year-old boy (played by Bobby Coleman)…who happens to think he’s from Mars. Amanda Peet co-stars.

DVDs — THAT’s how you dial up the romance. You can pick them out online and pick them up at your nearest redbox.

Redbox is continuing it’s expansion (and world domination) with plans to add over 2,700 locations at Wal-marts across the country in 2008.

From the press release:

Redbox, the fully automated DVD rental system featuring new release rentals for $1 per night, recently announced an agreement with Wal-Mart to expand its number of automated DVD rental kiosks to the majority of Wal-Mart’s 3,542 stores nationwide. Currently available at nearly 800 U.S. Wal-Mart locations, redbox will install kiosks at approximately 2,700 additional Wal-Mart stores beginning in the first half of 2008 and continuing into 2009.

[…]

Redbox kiosks are now available at more than 6,700 locations nationwide, including leading grocery stores, select McDonald’s® restaurants, and Walgreens and Wal-Mart locations in select markets. The company’s expanded Wal-Mart presence further solidifies redbox’s position as the number one DVD rental provider in the country based on number of U.S. locations.

Add that up and that puts Redbox in over 10,000 locations within a year. Now if they only had a location just outside my front door…

THE LOOK MIGHT BE NEW…
But the DVDs? Wait, they’re new too…

New DVD Releases - Feb 5, 2008

Longtime fans might just notice a streamlined new look to these emails. Well, redbox can do a new Spring look as well as the Paris design studios. Fab.

The Brave One

Known for squaring off against the bad guys, this time Jodie Foster IS the bad guy. Or is she? Here she plays a woman dead set on revenge after surviving a brutal attack. Terrence Howard co-stars.

Snow Buddies

Some of Disney’s best and brightest young stars — here, adorable talking puppies — are back at it in this feature. Voiced by Dylan Sprouse and Jim Belushi among others, here the pups set out to win the big sled race.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

So you know what’s going to happen. But the acting by Brad Pitt (as James) and Casey Affleck (as Ford) will still leave surprises at every turn in this interpretation of the last days of the famous Missouri outlaw’s life.

Across the Universe

Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess (not to mention the music of the Beatles) are the big stars in this whimsical tale. It’s about a boy named Jude and a girl named Lucy who find each other — and love — in 1960’s America.

Go Diego Go: Diego’s Magical Missions!

For the kids, of course. Everyone loves Diego.

And from last week…

The Invasion

When an ancient virus threatens everyone on earth (starting with her son), a scientist played by Nicole Kidman has to stop it. Teaming up with Daniel “The New 007” Craig might just be her only hope.

Onward, movie lovers. Select these and other new flicks online at redbox.com, then grab them at your nearest redbox.
