I love Redbox. In many grocery stores and in almost every McDonalds, they have a kiosk where you can rent DVDs for $1 a night plus tax. You are only charged for the number of nights you keep a movie and you can return the movie to any Redbox kiosk in the country. It’s quite possibly the easiest way to rent movies, other than with Netflix, and it’s unlikely you can find anything out there that’s cheaper.
The best part is that very frequently they offer free rental codes that give you a night for free. It’s only “worth” a dollar plus your local taxes, but a free movie is a free movie right?
Searching for Movies
One of the difficult parts about Redbox is that you can’t be sure what movies a kiosk has, since people are constantly reserving and returning movies all day. Fortunately you can search online at Redbox.com and the site will tell you which movies are available where, so you can save yourself a trip. If you are so inclined, you can even reserve the movie online and pick it up at the kiosk later to ensure you don’t waste a trip.
Redbox Free Rental Promo Codes
Some codes only work at certain locations, other codes work everywhere. Usually grocery stores have store specific codes, as you’ll see below, and this is because they just setup a kiosk and are looking to popularize it.
- At Kroger – DVDKROG
- At Walgreens – DVDATWAG
- Everywhere – DVDONME or BREAKROOM
Redbox will limit one free rental per credit card so remember which cards you’ve used and use a different one each time you rent to maximize the free rentals.
Here is the Redbox kiosk locator.
