Redbox are those big red boxy things at many grocery stores these days where you can rent DVD's. Works better than Netflix for me because I don't watch movies often and it is MUCH cheaper than renting a movie from a Blockbuster store. Try it out. DVD's rented from Redbox can be returned to ANY Redbox location. It's $1 per night per rental. New nights start at either 7:00pm or 9:00pm, it has been extended in some areas, it will say the due back time when you check out.
Check the disc to make sure it's not scratched badly before you leave, if it is just rent another copy, then return the first, call customer service and they will credit you without a problem.
As far as I know coupon codes don't work if you rent the DVDs online then pick it up in the store.

EXPIRED (RECENT DEALS)
* - After a long deal of time try the card again 1-2 years later... for another go around. Or check cards that get re-issued to you either because the account was cancelled due to a lost card or stolen for example; or cards that are re-issued as they expire. - Nothing to lose by trying them again, but a few seconds time.
Also, use prepaid gift cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) as long as you have at least a $1.20 DVD + Tax, $1.50 + Tax Blu-rays, $2.00 + Tax Games balance (or if you happen to be in a test market whatever the applicable prices are in your area).
The promo code does NOT work if you reserve it online. - However, when you sign up create an account your first reservation nets you a $1.20 off your next rental.

HOW TO USE A CODE AT THE KIOSK - Most CODES ARE AT THE KIOSK. IT used to be ALL of them but... (They have begun a limited number of ONLINE codes but they are USUALLY marked CLEARLY for ONLINE RESERVATION ONLY)
To use a promo code, visit a Redbox. Touch "Rent with Promo Code" and enter a valid promo code.
Select the movie you want. Touch "add to cart". The price will come up as $1.20 minus $1.20 for a total of $0 -- Free Rental! (PRICES UPDATED to reflect DVD now cost $1.20
or $1.50 for Blu-ray - $1.20 = $0.30 + tax on that amount.
Touch "Check out" and you will be prompted to slide your credit card through.
Enter in your e-mail when prompted or touch "no thanks".
Enter in your zip code that appears on your credit card's statement.
You have until 9pm the next day to return your movie for no charge. Additional days are $1.20/day plus tax. After 25 days ($24 with code), (IS THAT PRICING CURRENT) the movie is considered yours to keep.
Some machines allow movie purchases for $6 + tax (prices may vary). DVD's can be returned to ANY Redbox, not just the one you got it from.
Promo codes are valid once per credit card. You can enter in your email address at the machine to be added to a mailing list where more free codes will come as well as your receipt. Prepaid credit cards - have been shut down.

FAQs About Monthly Codes
What's the Redbox text club?
The Redbox text club is a group of customers who want to get great deals on their phones. If you're a member, you'll get special Redbox deals & freebies texted straight to your phone – including a free promo code every month!
How do I sign up for the Redbox text club?
All you have to do is text the word SIGNUP to 727272. (Up to 2 messages a week, only available on participating carriers, message and data rates may apply, and you can always text HELP for help & STOP to quit.)
Why aren't you sending promo codes on the first Monday of the month anymore?
Text club members told Redbox that they wanted free promo codes on more days than just Mondays, and Redbox listened! Now, instead of Movie Mondays, you can expect your free promo codes to be texted to you on days of the week that aren't just Mondays. You'll still be sent one free promo code per month.
If I've already signed up for Free Movie Mondays, do I have to register again?
Nope! As long as your phone number & carrier haven't changed, you won't need to re-register for the text club.
Can the free monthly promo code be used to rent Blu-ray™ movies or video games?
Yes! Using your promo code for a Blu-ray movie or video game will take $1 off the price of your first day's rental.
Will I be charged for the promo codes I receive from the text club?
Redbox will never charge you for the promo codes you receive from the text club. You might see some message & data rate charges from your mobile provider, though, so be sure to check your plan.
I got a promo code thru the text club, but it didn't work. What should I do?
The promo code will only work on the day you receive it. If you tried to use your code on the day you received it but it still didn't work, please contact the Redbox Customer Care team.
I didn't get my free monthly promo code texted to me until the nighttime, so I didn't have a chance to use it. What should I do?
Redbox always sends out the free promo code texts between 8 am and 10 am, local time (based on the area code of your cell phone). If your promo code comes later than that, it might be an issue with your phone. Please call your mobile provider to find out what's going on.
