Redbox Update – Happy New Year!

Well, the holidays are now behind us, and its time to get back to work. I may miss the holiday season a little, but it is good to get focused again and get more done. Does is seem like the holidays are getting longer every year, or is it just me? This year the stores started the holidays the day after October. Next year will it start the day after Labor Day? Anyway, feel free to comment if you like…

In any case, now that the new year is here and I can focus again, you should see more posts and updates on the site. In addition, I will be launching a “sister” site to InsideRedbox soon. But, more on that later…


As many of you know, I have recently started collecting zip codes when you enter a Redbox code into the system. I did this to help keep better track of where codes are working/not working, since Redbox has been expanding so quickly. The old “Markets” list just doesn’t cover it anymore.

Anyway, looking at the zip codes I have received, as well as the old market data, I noticed something interesting. It seems that Redbox codes seem to be working/not working everywhere, and there don’t seem to be codes that only work in some markets/area. So, that brings me to this weeks question…

Question: Are the Redbox codes that are currently listed as working (basically the top 6 codes) good in your area? Also, do you use the “Codes by Market” feature on the codes page?

Your feedback will help me change the Redbox codes page for the better. Also, feel free to share anything else you might think about the codes page, too.

Click here and scroll to the bottom to answer this week’s question.


You can check this week’s “News from Redbox” post to read about the latest releases. And, as always, if you have seen any of these movies, please let everyone know what you think about it in the forum.

So, did anyone notice a code this season that gave more than 1 free rental? I didn’t get a chance to watch many movies, so I didn’t check. Let us know if you did.

As of today, it seems like there are 6 codes that are working all across the country. If you know about a code that is working that is not on the list, definitely add it into the system. Also, remember that the system can keep track of all of the codes you have already used for you, along with what credit card you used with the code. This way, you can get maximum usage out of the codes. So, check out the codes page right away…

That is all for now. I hope that you all achieve any goals you have set for yourself this new year. Perhaps we can discuss some of those next week… Until then, have a great week!

    I almost always use the Codes by Market listing, as I feel I can usually find more usable codes that way. I can usually find a good code in the top six to use.

    i agree with C Dodd.

    I never use the codes by zip codes. My area is not listed. I find the first 6 or so codes usually work in my area anyway.

    I love the FREE rentals. Much better than your competitor “New Release” They charge my card twice everytime. Only one charge goes through but the other charge is held up in the authorization process for 2-3 days which means that money is unavailable to me.

    But i was wondering if you can get more than 1 free rental at a time. Can i use 2 codes in one visit? I haven’t tried it yet but i was wondering.

    Yes, you can use 2 or more codes in one visit. The more free movies, the better!

    I absolutely love the free dvd codes offered. It’s easy & allows me to view all movies at any time I choose. Redbox has made the rush and chaos of my life, a simple act of enjoyment & I thank you. Rock on Redbox.

    Thanks for free codes, I love free movie rentals and movie rentals for a buck aren’t bad either. I love your sevices that you apply so generously. Wish I could help in some way. I don’t own any movies to be in your program exchange or what ever you call it. Anyway THANKS!!! I know I can say that but if I could help let me know. Thanks again and by the way thanks i really do appreciate the codes.

    I live in the Greate Saint Louis, MO. area and I do not use the Zip Code Feature. I would like to point out that The “Shop ‘N’ Save” grocery stores, a division of the “Super Valu” corporation, have installed redbox. This grocery store had their own video rental department and believe it or not, they rented DVDs for 99 cents. I am not too sure as to why they made the change, but the only reason I can come up with is money. Anyway, Michael, maybe you can shed some light on the “Shop “n” Save” situation.

    I am not familiar with “Shop n Save”, but I know that the deal with Albertsons is similar. Albertsons is a grocery store with over 400 locations, and many of them have movie rental departments as well, with $1 rentals.

    Redbox plans to be in all Albertons locations in the first quarter of 2007, so I assume it will replace their movie rental section.

    I am guessing that there is not a lot of money made by Albertsons in their rental business, and Redbox eliminates the need to staff it. So, it is likely similar with Shop n Save.

    As far as I am concerned, the more Redbox’, the better!

    I’m not big on horror, action adventure or cgi, so sometimes the choices are too limited for me.
    Unfortunately, their selections are probably calculated to maximize rentals rather than please their customers.

    Yea, it definitely can be limited, although they do pretty good to include all new releases.

    I am not sure about one thing in your comment, though…

    “…their selections are probably calculated to maximize rentals rather than please their customers.”

    It seems to me if they are “maximizing rentals”, they are pleasing their customers. Otherwise, their rental count would be low because what people want would not be there.
