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.

With the brunt of Phase 1 completed, we are ready to move on to phases 2 and 3.

These phases (especially phase 2) will take a bit longer than the first phase, but they will be worth the wait.

PHASE 2. INSIDE REDBOX MOBILE

This is the most exciting addition to Inside Redbox for me, and I hope many of you will be able to take advantage of it.

We are working on a new mobile version of the site designed for smaller screens and mobile phone browsers. In addition, we plan to build an iPhone Application that incorporates even more cool ideas.

Along with the new mobile version (and specifically the iPhone App), we are going to be adding some really cool features that I think you will like. I cannot share all of what we are doing yet, but just know that it will make renting movies from Redbox a lot easier for you when you are on the go.

PHASE 3. CODENAME: MQ

Can you guess what this will be?

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. I will pick someone from those who are closest (or who get it right) and send you a $25 gift card to Amazon or Best Buy.

More updates to come, so stay tuned and be sure to subscribe to “Insider Updates” by filling out the form to the right.

    Michael erased all the comments I wrote earlier, but if you would have read my comments closer you would know that I stated THE STUDIOS HATE REDBOX and all the sites that give out the codes.

    I like to refer to youtube as YOUSTUPIDTUPE cause it full of stupid and dumb stuff and find it pointless to the point of laughable.

    Your YouStupidTupe video you speak of is pointless since I did not state that Redbox hates these sites.

    Do you really believe that The Studios like their million dollar movies given away. They see it as another form of piracy.

    Please turn of the caps now.

      I KNOW YOU SAID studios HOWEVER THEY SOLD THOSE TO REDBOX FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT OTHER DVD RENTAL CO’S PAY FOR THEM AND THE ONLY PROFIT THE studios SEE IS WHEN THE MOVIE IS IN THE THEATER! NOT WHEN ITS RENTED! THE stupidos ie studios ARE UPSET BECAUSE THEY OWN A LOT MORE THEN WHAT PEOPLE REALIZE LIKE studios own blockbuster who own viacom who are partners with hbo etc THEY SHOULD OF THOUGHT OF THE KIOSK FIRST AND I STOPED PAYING FOR RENTALS WHEN THEY WENT UP TO OVER $5 FROM blockbuster WHICH DOES NO GOOD CUZ TILL RB CAME AROUND I JUST RENTED on demand IE PAYING THE STUDIOS 3.99 A MOVIE WHICH IS STILL A RIP OFF! AND MAYBE YOUR stupidos SHOULD PAY THE ACTORS LESS AND NOT CHARGE BETWEEN 10-20 JUST TO SEE A MOVIE AT THE THEATER BECAUSE THEN MORE PEOPLE WOULD GO AND THEY WOULD ACTUALLY PROFFIT MORE…. IN THIS WORLD WITH A VERY FRAGILE ECONOMY SOME PEOPLE DONT HAVE THE MONEY FOR EXTRAS AND THOSE PEOPLE ARE THE ONES SERVICING YOU IN THE CUSTOMER SERVICE INDUSTRIES…. AND IF THE stupidos didnt want that to happen with the codes they should have thought of that before they ever made coupons for free rentals when buying their products SAME THING IN MY EYS….

    You proved a lot there; with the caps and all. And let it be known that you attacked me first with your personal jabs. Shame on you and your mother.

    You want to put your head in the sand, continue to do so.

    The points I made are undeniably accurate. Economics 101. Regardless of the state of the economy it is still not right to use Predatory Pricing to destroy an industry. People are losing there jobs. From the million dollar actor to the minimum wage movie packer. Just because you are single mother going to school do you deserve to get free movies. If that were the case we should have paid $10 when there was a good economy or a millionaire. Entitlement seems to be the enabler. I suggest you enjoy your freebies while you can, cause the Studios will not sit back and let it continue; evidenced by Universal’s attempt to twart Redbox. The First Sale Doctrine prevents the studios from not selling to Redbox; but it sure can hamper the way they get them.

    There are laws in many states to prevent Predatory Pricing. You can’t sell Gas, cigarettes, milk and other items below a certain price in most states. I’m sure the Costcos of the world would love to have all the gas sales.

    I never said I didn’t like this site. I’m bringing another side to the story and enjoy debate(although I really do despise all the caps). Didn’t your mother tell you there are more sides to the story than your own. Plus, I didn’t see that there is a rule that you have to love this site to come here. Evidenced by all the negative talk about fraud with credit cards and scratched discs. My statements seemed to have hit home because you think you are entitled to have something for next to nothing. I don’t blame you for liking something for next to nothing, but someone has to get paid; we are not in a utopia.

    I’ll quit my rambling and perhaps live up to your Love it or Leave It demands if you quit the Caps and quit being a Hypocrite with the personal attacks.

    Personally, I hope you read this and then Michael reads it and deletes it.

    Hey michael,

    I would suggest getting rid of all the fail options and list them in this order:
    1) Working
    2) Not Valid At Location
    3) New Customers Only
    4) Code Already Used
    5) Invalid Code

    because it looks like people just select the first failed one when it isnt truly a bad code but not correct location.

      @Krrose27:

      That is a good suggestion. I agree that some people don’t select the right option, and I have tweaked it a few times to try and remedy that. Perhaps I will try your idea and see what happens.

      Thanks!

    I’d guess the MQ as being Michael’s Q&A – a question-and-answer session with redbox representatives, however frequently they can work out (bi-weekly, monthly, whatever)

    That would really strengthen the Insider identity; otherwise the site risks being just another cut-and-paste blog.

    First of all……… this site is like no other……….

    Secondly………. may I suggest that “Bitten by Bill” stop and breathe……

    Thirdly………… I’d like to give a guess……….. “Michael’s quarterly”, perhaps like in a journal or publication, four times a year. ….

    My last guess is “Michael’s or member’s quips”.

    Right or wrong, I really like this website and appreciate the free movies every week.

    Thanks to you Michael, I have my grandchildren over pretty much every Monday night for movies and popcorn at “mom-mom and pop-pop’s house”.

    That’s why you are so special to us!!
    Thank you Michael and G-D bless you and your family.

    Are there any codes that will work any day of the week? Breakroom no longer works? Thanks for any help!

      BREAKROOM seems to be working for 99% of the people who use it, not sure why you are having trouble with it.

      Of course, it might not work if you already used it, but other than that it should be fine.

      BTW, BREAKROOM does seem to work more than once per card, as I have used it more than once on the same cards and many others have reported the same results. But, you will have to wait a month or more to use it again.

      Good luck!

    I guess that MQ will be a Movie Que for you to manage the movies you want to rent!

    I just love this, as do my kids since dad has put us all on a tight budget. Now we get to see movies all the time that we wouldn’t otherwise get to see. Thank you thank you thank you. Monday’s code is great and BREAKROOM has worked at McDonald’s for us, mostly. Since I only have two credit cards now, part of the budget deal, sometimes it doesn’t work.
