Darn, I only have 700. Don't have a clue how to use these yet or how Perks compares to Playpass.

They posted a conversion chart here [redbox.com] (PDF)

Plus, they're changing free DVD requirements to 1500 points, where each DVD rental=100 points (so you have to rent 15 to get a free DVD rental) and each BD rental=125 (12 before a free DVD rental is earned.) Games are 200 points. Free BD rentals are earned at 1750, games at 2500.

Basically, the Delta Airlines model.

I wonder if this is signaling the end of free rental codes.

full terms, including earning structure, are here
http://www.redbox.com/redboxperks/terms

Quote :
Completing a paid transaction for the rental of a DVD 100 Points/night
Completing a paid transaction for the rental of a Blu-Ray Disc 125 Points/night
Completing a paid transaction for the rental of a video game disc 200 Points/night
Completing a paid On Demand rental or purchase transaction at Redbox.com or via the Redbox app on Android devices 75 points per transaction (regardless of the number of titles in the transactions)
Adding an accepted payment card to your Redbox Account (if no payment card has been added in the past) 150 Points (and may only be earned one time)
Completing your Redbox disc preferences (if not already complete). Completing your Redbox disc preferences means filling out your preferred disc format and genre preference in your Redbox Account profile. 200 Points (and may only be earned one time).
Downloading the Redbox Mobile App (if never downloaded before) and logging in 150 Points (and may only be earned one time).
Setting up and confirming "phone and pin,", which means providing your mobile phone number and selecting a four (4) digit pin in your Redbox Account and confirming your mobile phone number when prompted via SMS. 250 points (and may only be earned one time).
I'm not sure if a "paid" transaction means that you don't get points for free rentals anymore. That would be a bummer.

I did a free one night game rental and I'm not seeing the points from that transaction. But I'm just a few hours from having returned the disc, and haven't received points for doing the phone number+PIN thing either.

This could be the end of points on free rentals. I picked on three free rentals, returned them this morning, and haven't had points posted on my account.

Disregard this message; the points seemed to have posted this afternoon.

I haven't received points from any of the bonus options (like signing in, or adding a card, etc). A paid rental ($0.27) posted right away.

I'm +200 since I last checked, which could be two DVDs or a game (all of which I've rented for free.)

Or maybe it's the 100 I was shorted in the transition+100 from a DVD.

IDK what's going on.

You check in your profile (My Account / Transactions / Perks) to see where they're coming from. The initial points are listed under "Migration transaction"

The last Points that were added to my account was a 1/19/18 Bluray rental using a $1.25 off code. That netted me 125 Points.
I've rented 5 disks since then using both codes and prevoius credits and nothing has shown up as points.

The recent emails for my game rentals (free codes) list 0 points earned.

Up 250 points today, probably from the phone number+PIN thing. So there's definitely a delay.
