Save On Your Redbox Movie Rentals
Are you a huge fan of renting movies at the Redbox like we are? They are so convenient and already a really good price to start if you remember to return them on time that is LOL. We have complied a list of other ways you can save some money on your Redbox movie rentals. If you rent as often as we do these savings can really add up!
1) Sign Up for Text Alerts
First thing to do if you are looking to save some money on Redbox movies is to sign up for their text alerts. Simply text the keyword “FRIENDS” to the number 727272. You will occasionally receive text messages from Redbox and often time they will include a coupon for you to use n your next rental. Normal text rates do apply. You normally only get about 2-3 texts a month so they won’t drive you crazy lol.
2) Redbox Promo Codes
One of the best ways to save on your Redbox movie rentals is to use one of the many coupon codes you can find on the internet. You can often find codes for a free night’s rental or for a discount anywhere form $1.25 off to $.50 off your rental. Our favorite place to find Redbox codes is CouponDad.net. They post Redbox codes that can be used by anyone as well as host a large community where one time use codes are shared / exchanged.
3) Sign Up for Email Messages From Redbox
Another way to get discounted movie rentals from Redbox is to sign up for their email alerts. You will get a couple emails a week from them so I suggest using a different email account from your main one. You can easily grab a free Gmail or Ymail email address to use to sign up for these newsletters. That’s what we do! Once you sign up for the email blasts you will get emails about new release coming out and often times the emails will include a discount code as well.
4) Rent a DVD Rather Than Blu-Ray
When it makes sense of course. We always grab the Blu-Ray version if it is an action or thriller type of movie. But for most other movies you probably don’t really need the Blu-Ray higher definition version. That is unless you just enjoy seeing the wrinkles and imperfections on your favorites actors faces! But honestly, we find most drama and comedies type movies you could do without the higher definition and sound and stick to the normal dvd and save a few bucks. Especially if you are going to end up watching it in your room anyway where most of us don’t have the Hi-Def tv’s and surround systems.
5) Join Redbox PlayPass
Redbox PlayPass is the Redox rewards program. You can earn rewards for every rental you make. After 10 rentals you will get a code for a free one. You will also get a free movie on your birthday and on the anniversary of when you joined the PlayPass club. Other benefits you will receive are occasional discounts, specials and promotions. We often get discounts on purchasing movies from Redbox.
6) The Redbox App
You can download the Redbox app onto your phone from the Google and Apple stores. The app is useful for reserving movies, checking if the movie you want is available at a Redbox location near you and for seeing what new movies are out. The other cool thing is of course they occasionally send you messages through the app that may include Redbox coupon codes for a free or discounted rental. Normally you will get a code for a free movie just for downloading and activating the app too!
7) Follow Redbox on Social Media
Redbox likes to slip free codes into their social media posts occasionally. So you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook and even Instagram to make sure you see those codes. Of course Coupon Dad (see above) adds those to his site when they are posted. So you can just watch for them there.
Let us know if you have any questions on any of the money saving Redbox tips? We are happy to help and remember to make sure you return your movies before 9pm the next day to avoid any extra charges. Enjoy your movie and saving on your Redbox movie rentals.
