    What’s Albertsons? Company or store?

    Wait! So Albertsons (a grocery store in the west) has a bunch of one time use Redbox codes already listed in their computer? Employee’s rejoice!

    I don’t think so, I think it’s going to be a single open code that works only at Albertsons, so post it if you get it and let’s find out.

    Funny thing is you might be able to return the toothpaste right there on the spot “I just remembered we bought some a week ago” and if you have another item on the receipt, you have a reason to keep the receipt.

    Tuesday would be nice.

    The coupon gets printed on the ‘catalina’ machines (the ones next to the registers). Chances are it will be a one time coupon. If it’s on ‘specially marked packages’ then it will be a generic one (like the energizer from some time ago).

    I work at an Albertson’s in Washington. The redbox movie coupons print on both the receipt and from the catalina machine.

      OK, so how many codes that you have seen are the same?

      And again, think of the logistics of this, Redbox would have to generate a bunch of codes from their system and then give them all to Albertsons to put in their database, then some programmer would have to write a special program to track which one’s they gave away. A lot of trouble.

      But if it’s just one code, they just print that on the receipt every time someone buys the toothpaste. Much more likely.

      Yes they must have lots of coupons generated at once. They have those codes printed on McD cups and each is different (I think). Same way that McD has those Monopoly codes on cups.

    Car, it is not that difficult to program a little web application to generate codes, and add them into a valid code database in the redbox network. I am thinking on buying loads of toothpaste and returning it all.

      The simple way to test this is to get a code, use it for a rental and then type it in again and see if it says “code already used”. If it doesn’t, post it here so everyone can use it.

      The problem is when Albertsons gets a huge list of one time use codes for their database. It’s possible that a disgruntled employee could leak them all on the net. Then customers who got the codes go to use them and find they are already used. Not good for PR.

      Another possibility is Redbox would give them 10 or so codes that are rotated for each purchase. Then state that they have to use it in 60 days or something so the codes don’t last too long. They would work for anyone, one time per card.

    goodness guys, surely FREE is good enough and you will use the toothpaste…the best way to do this…is clip a colgate coupon or two get the toothpaste very cheap or free and get the free movie and be thankful…my albertson’s prices things wrong constantly and i get the item free and money back…could work it that way too if they ring it up wrong…using self check out is an easy way to see if it prices right or not…but their limit on giving you free stuff due to their error is usually two or three items per incorrect transaction i think.

    Being so dishonest over a dollar movie. What is this world coming to?

    I agree, Julie. If some people don’t want to spring for the cost of toothpaste, then they should just wait until next Monday to get another free code. After all, you can get a free movie for EACH credit card used. Isn’t that enough? Redbox is being pretty generous as it is.

    I work at Albertsons. Every code printed on the receipt is different. I’m a pretty disgrunted employee but I’m NOT going to put it on the internet. Geez. It’s a freakin dollar people. And returning the toothpaste JUST to get a free movie? I’m hurting for money too but I do brush MY teeth, so its actually a good deal.

    To rapidtexter: Our company policy is after a mgr has verified the price of an item is wrong, you get THAT item free. If you bought ten of the same items, you still get only ONE item free and the rest at the correct price. Some items will not be given away, like alcohol or tabacco and anything like that. If you would have 3 wrong prices on one receipt, then I’d say the scan coordinator needs a talking to, or someone read the wrong tag and doesn’t know what they are doing. That is why mgrs are supposed to double check all “scan guaranteed” items, so that cashiers aren’t just giving stuff away because they’ve read it wrong. I’ve been a cashier for over 10 years and have never had more than one “scan guaranteed” item on one receipt. In case you were interested ;)
