Finding the nearest Redbox kiosk when you’re on the go just got a little easier with the company’s new “location finder” text service. By texting “redbox” to 50101 from your mobile device, users will receive an incoming message requesting a ZIP code. Replying to that message will bring up a list of the Redbox kiosks in the area. Redbox is partnering with software-as-a-service provider Signal to offer the new service.
Redbox senior VP Gary Cohen offered the following on the new text service:
“With more than 24,000 locations and counting, finding the nearest redbox location has never been easier . . . Our mobile programs continue to enhance the redbox experience and make finding the latest film or the closest redbox simple for consumers.”
Will you be using this new service, Insiders? Also, don’t forget to check out the free Inside Redbox Pro app, which besides assisting with kiosk location also allows you to browse the inventory of your local kiosks, search all the latest movies available at Redbox, and get the latest promo codes.
