OK, this update has been a bit delayed, but I have been trying to figure some things out, and I think I finally have it…
Coming soon is the InsideRedbox Points System, which will allow you to earn cool stuff (ipods, xbox, wii, gift cards) and free DVD movies.
Thanks to all of you for sharing what kinds of prizes you want to see. We will do our best to incorporate the top suggestions into our system.
You will earn points by doing simple things, like participating in the hunts, writing movie reviews, adding new working Redbox codes, telling others about InsideRedbox, etc… Then, you will be able to redeem these points in the soon-to-come InsideRedbox Store.
It isn’t ready yet, so be patient. Just make sure you are signed up for the “Redbox Insider Updates” and I will let you know when everything is ready to go.
CONTRIBUTE TO INSIDEREDBOX
Another thing that will earn you points, and be a great benefit to everyone, is the ability for you to contribute stories/articles in InsideRedbox.com.
What we are looking for is any stories about Redbox and other DVD Rental kiosks, as well as general DVD rental news. We will create separate categories for all of the different types of news, so everything can stay organized.
So, if you would like to share a story with us – and earn points as well – you can send your contributions to “stories [at] insideredbox [dot] com” starting today. Make sure to include the URL to the story, and tell us what it is about.
Thanks for your help!
Codes are coming and going more quickly these days, so you need to make sure you check here often for the working codes.
As of today, there are 5 codes that are confirmed working. You can check them out on the Codes page.
VIRTUAL TREASURE HUNT
We have extended the Virtual Treasure Hunt this week, as we are preparing the new system. So, if you haven’t sent us your entry yet, you still have time to do so.
As mentioned above, you will earn points just for participating. So, as long as you complete a few hunts, you are guaranteed you will get a prize.
This current password is: julius
NOTE: The winner of our first hunt was: gLoRy from the Houston, TX area. We need to hear back from you ASAP with the prize you want so we can get it out to you.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
This week I want to hear from you on your ideas of what actions should earn you points in the upcoming InsideRedbox store. So, things like reviewing a movie, sharing a new code, referring friends, etc…
Feel free to share anything you like, and then you can vote on everyone else’s responses by clicking the “Thumbs Up” and “Thumbs Down” icon under their comment.
Thats it for now. So, be sure to participate in the Hunt if you haven’t yet, and take moment to answer the Question of the Week.
Until next time!
