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.

As you may be aware, last month Redbox changed the way they are distributing their monthly first monday promo codes. Now they are only sent via text message to those signed up for their SMS network, and the codes are all unique so they cannot be shared.

If that wasn’t bad enough, things got worse today…

It looks like some glitch in the Redbox system has prevented codes from being sent to most subscribers, and those who are receiving text messages, are getting no codes at all, but just a nice blank message.

Let us know if you got your code, or if you are a victim of this error.

Personally, I don’t see the purpose of making one-time use codes that are only good for a single day, but I am sure Redbox is testing and if this doesn’t work out (like today), perhaps they will return to a more simple system.

BTW, if you do get a one-time use code that you do not plan to use, feel free to post it here!

    I don’t know why they keep sending codes that are only good for a couple hours. I’m not getting out in middle of a snow storm at night just to get a movie. I think I will stick to getting movies at the library instead.

    What if you do not text or have the text option on cell phones. How will I recieve promo codes?

    didnt receive any code , and once I did receive a free rental code it was past the cut off time to use it. I hope they find a better solution to all this and send the codes out earlier so we can use them or find a complete better system to use in 2010

    Have any of you gotten any other junk texts from Redbox or otherwise since signing up for the codes?
    That really sucks about not sharing them now. What a rip.
