[FYI] Movies are provided at RANDOM = You don't get to choose nor select movie!

Using the glitch, I was able to get 30 free movies. If it doesn't work, well at least you got some free movies.

Best method for getting 30 free movies. (thx stealofadeal and Requies)
Quote :
  1. Go to rottentomatoes.com and login (if you don't have an account sign up via facebook or create a new account).
  2. Sign up for ultraviolet or log in using your ultraviolet account (make sure you don't have any symbols like "+" in your ultraviolet log in. It makes ultraviolet barf.)
  3. Go to Rewards Page [rottentomatoes.com]
  4. Click on the "Sign up for newsletter" option.
  5. Click "Continue" and wait for the message that you got a free movie.
  6. After getting the movie, click the red X in the top right corner
  7. Go back to step 4.
  8. Once you start getting the same movie, you've gotten all 30, and can stop clicking.
  9. Enjoy!
Caveat: Make sure not to reload the page or click on "go see my collections". I was having trouble with the iPhone and Android methods. I think the problem was that I was going to the collection and forcing a reload on the page which checks for the offer redemption. So, I don't know what would happen if you go away from the page and come back, but I wouldn't chance it until you get all 30 movies.

If you can't get that to work, try the "Pick 5" trick:
Quote :
Used Chrome on a PC went to flixster.com. Sign in - my log in is not through Facebook.
go to earn gift movies.
go to pick 5 movies want to see.
pick 5 and then it will give a free movie.
click back to free rewards and repeat above steps.

When all movie choices under "want to see" are gone I used the flixster app on my ipod to remove movies from my want to see list. go to your list. click on a movie, tap on want to see button it will change from blue to gray and remove movie, go back and repeat. I couldn't figure out how to remove from my want to see list on Chrome. Don't change to "not interested" because there seems to be a limited number of movies showing up on the "want to see" list.

Here's the original "App" trick on the iPod/iPhone/Android-phone:

Quote :
On iPod Touch/iPhone - install app, open app - click banner in middle saying you have free movie
Click Don't send movies to friends
Click Login with flixster
Wait for movie to be added
Once added, click Back in upper left corner
Rinse and repeat

List of 30 Movies
  • 9 1/2 Weeks
  • A Cinderella story
  • A Mighty Wind
  • Austin Powers International Man of Mystery
  • Blade 2
  • Blow
  • Dangerous Liasons
  • Demolition Man
  • Doc Hollywood
  • Dog Day Afternoon
  • Don Juan DeMarco
  • Lean on Me
  • Lethal Weapon
  • Little Big League
  • Looney Tunes: Back in Action
  • Malibu's Most Wanted
  • Mars Attacks
  • Matchstick Men
  • Mortal Kombat
  • Mortal Kombat - Annihilation
  • Pay It Forward
  • Presumed Innocent
  • Private Benjamin
  • Running on Empty
  • Something to Talk About
  • Space Jam
  • Striptease
  • The Bodyguard
  • The Perfect Storm
  • Year of the Dragon

Also, if you are trying to get the glitch on the app but getting nowhere...as another resort, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. For me, I was able to get the glitch over and over with new movies each time by uninstalling then reinstalling, rinse and repeat.

Don't give up!! there seem to be many different ways to get the glitch working!!

Did you get your movie via Flixster or via RottenTomatoes?

On Flixster. On the left side of the screen is a link that says "Collection" I click on that link and my gift movies show up there. I can click on the individual movie and then there is a link to "watch now"...

On Rottentomatoes, there should be a link at the top left corner that says "Movies I Own". Click on that, and it will take you to your movie collection where you can watch the films.

I did it on flixster, but the movie does not show up. If I go back to the Earn gift movies link it shows that I can pick more movies that I want to see. So I have done this like 4 times and gotten 4 movies, but none of them show up in my collection

hmmm..maybe it will take some time to load into your collection...or maybe try doing it through rottentomatoes. There are a lot of other ways to get free movies, like signing up for the news-letter. Maybe those will work better or come faster.

Oh wait, i see what you're saying. I am getting the same problem. I think it's better to do it through rottentomatoes.com then flixster. It looks like flixster may be having some kind of glitch right now??

I'm pretty sure the site and app is glitching. It keeps giving me free movies. All I did was restart the app and it kept giving me free movies 3-4 at a time with the offers they give you. After about 21 I started getting an error and had to restart the app and just clicked on the get free gift movie each time for 1 movie every time I restarted the app. I maxed out at 30 now and the same movie keeps popping up as my free gift.

I picked movies that I want to see both on the Android app and the website and I received a bonus movie for each.

I tried this on my Android app and it is also working for me.. getting a lot of free movies.
Although I'm restarting the app and it says "Add to your collection! Tap here for a surprise gift movie" (in gray) in the middle of the first screen that pops up and I keep getting one free movie every time I load the app then go through the steps again, then exit, repeat.

I don't even restart app, just hit can cancel on congrats page and it sends you back to page saying you have free movie hit continue to accept. Each time is a different movie. after 30 just keeps giving same movie.

don't forget some of the free ones you get for signing up with Vudu which can all be linked together in an ultraviolet account.

Sweet I ran into a glitch earlier today on the actual website where you get the free movie for adding to your want to see. I got a movie each 5 but eventually it ran out of movies for me to add so I couldn't do it anymore.
