Inside Redbox is the #1 "Unofficial" Redbox Online Community for Redbox Codes, News and more. Inside Redbox is not affiliated with Redbox Automated Retail, LLC.

I am testing a new feature that will allow you to get a list of the latest codes that have been reported working. See how it works below…

To get a list of the latest codes via SMS text message, do the following:

  • Text the words “insideredbox codes” to DOTCOM (368266)

There is no fee for this from InsideRedbox, of course, but standard text messaging rates do apply.

Also note that you can get the latest news by texting “insideredbox news” to the same number.

Let me know if you have any problems, and I will update this as needed.

    all I can recieve is text not email’s so this feature is not working for me on my phone. Do you just have a text feature with the free code for Mondays?

    Response says ” Please resend using a valid 10-digit mobile number or valid short code.”

      You need to send it as a text message. Type in the code like you are dialing a number, then send it as a SMSText and you’ll get back the codes.

        I received two text messages stating…
        #1:INSIDEREDBOX.COM Ooops! is not responding, did you type the domain name correctly? #2: customize this domain.

        I sent “Insiderebedbox codes” as an SMS text message like instructed…what do I do now?

    how do I set up to recieve codes on my phone? I’m a new member and text didn’t work!

  9. Member [Join Now]

    just signed up with NO LUCK. Did NOT get list.

    • Member [Join Now]

      How i finally got it to work was
      I sent a text to dotcom
      The message i typed said
      “Insideredbox codes Monday promo”
      I immediatly received a response with a list of updated codes.
      Good luck, and I hope this helped.

  10. Member [Join Now]

    Tried, but immediately received a response “Cricket is not participating in this event at this time”, oh, well, it was worth a try. I guess this explains why I have also never received the Monday codes directly from Redbox.

      Get a ink pen (old technology but probably still available at specialty stores), go to this site, write down codes on paper (also old technology), go to a Redbox, try codes, come back to this site and post your results (thanks).

      Pen and paper won’t give you a “not participating in this event at this time” error.

      Technology FAIL.

    Sweet! I just tried it for the first time and I got codes within seconds! That’s awsome!

  13. Member [Join Now]

    I tried it and it got back to me within seconds. I will have to try this next time I get movies. Thanks.

  14. Member [Join Now]

    The process is very simple and there was virtually no delay from sending the text to getting one back. Wonderful idea! This is very very convenient.

    • Member [Join Now]

    Do you know if they accept the carrier CricKet?

    • Administrator
      Michael [administrator]

      No, it appears Cricket is unable to receive the codes using this service. I am working on another way to make this possible.

      • Member [Join Now]

        I had Cricket for several years in Colorado & Kentucky and couldnt recve codes. Finally I changed to T-mobile and still have yet, after almost 2 months of trying recvd any free codes via text. I have e-mailed and signed up thru redbox for 2 months to long and we spend ALOT of money thru there. Any suggestions on why my husband nor I have recvd a response from them. We have seperate phones and seperate accts so they are not linked in anyway to cause an issue.

  33. Member [Join Now]

    are the codes you get via text the same as on this site?

    • Administrator
      Michael [administrator]

      Yes, they are the same codes listed on the Redbox Codes page. Just a convenient way to access them when you are on the go.

  34. Member [Join Now]

    How often will codes be texted?

    • Administrator
      Michael [administrator]

      Codes are texted “on-demand”, so only when you ask for them.

      Just send “insideredbox codes” to DOTCOM (368266) anytime you want the latest list of codes.

  36. Member [Join Now]
