Just a quick update for this week…
First off, I want to say thanks to all of you who shared InsideRedbox.com with someone last week. We had a goal of getting more than 7000 visitors last Tuesday to break our one-day record. We didn’t quite make it, but were very close (somewhere around 6700 visitors). So, thank you, and keep sharing the gift of free movie rentals with those you know.
Like I mentioned last week, I added a new field to the Redbox code reporting page: the zip code. So, now when you report codes working (or not) you will enter your zipc ode, allowing the system to better keep track of where codes are working.
Since Redbox is expanding so much, the old system of tracking codes in 8 major metropolitan areas is longer very useful. I will be phasing that section out over the next little while as I get more codes updated with zip codes.
REDBOX EXPANDING INTO ALBERTSONS, OTHERS
I reported on this news last week, but I think it may have been missed by many of you. Just wanted to let you know that Redbox has announced further expansion plans for the near future, and that includes having a Redbox dvd rental kiosk in every single Albertsons store (over 400 locations) by March of 2007. This is great news for those of us who have an Albertsons nearby.
There were also other expansion locations announced, and you can read the whole story by checking out my post from last week…
Just a quick note on this week’s notable DVD releases. They are: The Devil Wears Prada, Talladega Nights, and Barnyard.
Seen it? Love it? Hate it? Let us know…
Well, thats it for now. Make sure you check back often to see the latests developments. There are new things coming for the New Year that will help make your experience using the Redbox even better. As always, I love to hear from you – let me know what you think, and what we can do better around here.
