Inside Redbox Disclosure Statement

It’s been a few years since I started this site, and its been a lot of fun. On occasion, I have expressed my reasons for doing so and my connections (or lack therof) to Redbox, but I wanted to clarify my purposes and any potential conflicts that may exist.

First off, let me just say that this website is not in any way affiliated with Redbox, McDonald’s or Coinstar. A more detailed explanation can be found below.

As it says on the About Us page, this website is designed to share and discuss the latest information on Redbox and other similar companies in the DVD rental industry. When I started this site, Redbox was fairly new, and this site was the first dedicated to providing news and info about Redbox, as well a place to share Redbox promo codes.

I chose the name Inside Redbox as somewhat of a play on words, as “inside” the Redbox kiosk was the place to get great movies for a buck. Also, the “inner workings” of the Redbox kiosk is something most Redbox users never see, and I wanted this website to be a place we could all share anything we want to about Redbox.

Over the past few years I have been asked what my relationship is with Redbox, and some have even accused me of working for Redbox and trying to deceive you. I want to clarify all of that with the following disclosures:

  • I am not (and have never been) an employee or consultant of Redbox, McDonald’s or Coinstar, or any similar companies in the DVD rental industry.
  • I do not own stock in Redbox, McDonald’s or Coinstar.
  • I do not receive any free movies, special benefits or services from Redbox, other than the occasional use of promo codes that everyone has equal access to here.
  • I have in the past had discussions with representatives from Redbox, as most bloggers and journalists would. I hope to continue open communication with them as well as other companies in the industry.
  • I do make affiliate commissions from time-to-time on ads located on this website. However, I have never been paid any commissions or the like by Redbox or its affiliates.
  • I try to be fair in my reporting of Redbox and other companies in the industry. As a blogger, I write about things that I am interested in, but am always open to comments, suggestions and even criticism.
  • I do not delete any comments unless they are found to be SPAM, pornographic, hateful, etc…
  • If I am wrong, I will post a retraction, correction or even apology, if necessary.
  • I try hard to respond to all email and comments I receive. If you need something, please let me know.

I hope this clears up what this website is (and is not). I really do enjoy running this site and discussing all things Redbox. I am grateful for all members of the (growing) community here and for all you do in helping make this site a fun and useful place to visit.

Thanks for being here!

– Michael

    I have recently available myself of your site and find it very useful for both codes and updated info and link(s).
    I occassionally use the free codes, and do not always return the movies on time, so Redbox gets $$ out of me anyway, I just get an extra day to view. Such is life, there is no free lunch.
    Anyway, thanks for your work and dedication; it is much appreciated. I too, have tried to log into contests and was kept out although I get your emails, and thought I was set up with you.

    I am a newcomer to Redbox. I had an accident in my home.
    I fell on my kitchen floor and couuld not get up.
    In a wheelchair now and unable to get out. My husband
    noticed Redbox in Wal-Mart and knowing how much I like
    to rent DVD’s. I was delighted about Redbox. I look up
    the new videos on the website and give him a list of
    what I want to see. He goes and gets them for me.
    Thanks for little things that mean a lot for an old gal. Saita

    Keep the codes coming!! I just discovered Redbox and your site a couple of months ago. Nearly everytime I go to a Redbox (and there are MANY in Houston), there are other people there returning and renting DVD’s. I even bought stock in Coinstar! Your site is great!!

    THanks for all the insite and codes. I use the codes often but also pay. I like the easy access to movies. I usually wait for it to come to red box. My finances are not great so it is our way to enjoy movies instead of spending an arm and a leg at the theater. I have told many friends about this site and about red box.

    Mike, Thanks for your volunteer work on behalf of us all, and Redbox in general. I’ve used Redbox and read your site for over 6 months now. I very often use the codes, but just as often keep the DVD’s out an extra day, paying the extra buck or so. I also just rent them for a dollar. Thanks to you and Redbox. Tom
