[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!!

I tried this and it did make the link available again, but when I hit the continue button, it said it was adding a movie, but it didn't add a movie.
This worked for me this weekend: just click continue, or whatever it says.

I tried some of the glitches mentioned in this thread and none of them worked for me, but I expected that to happen anyways since this thread is a year old. I did however, find a way to add the free Flixster movies to my main existing UV account using multiple Flixster accounts (multiple emails), my Android phone and a computer.

If you already have a main Flixster account, make sure to first log in to that account, go to Account area and UNLINK your main UV account. If not, follow the below steps, creating your main account first.

1) Download Flixster to your Android device
2) Click 'Continue' to Create a new account & get your first free movie
3) Create an account with email, not FB. I think when I first tried it out with different FB accts it didn't work..
4) Link your main (existing) UV account to get your first free movie **
5) App will redirect back to Flixster, click the blue bar up top and then click "Movies I own".**
6) At the top you'll see a link for your "Surprise gift movie", or if you successfully received your first movie, then you'll see a link 'More ways to earn movies".
7) Click through either of the 2 above links, to earn the last 2 free movies you'll need to Rate 5 Movies and Add 10 to your Want To See list.
8) Some grey boxes will pop up confirming the movies were added to your account, the more movies you have in your UV account the longer this will take as Flixster needs to sift through your UV database and give you a random movie you don't have...
9) Using a computer or your devices browser, log in to the Flixster account, go to Account area and Unlink your UV account
10) Uninstall the Flixster app from Android device, reinstall, rinse + repeat creating a new Flixster account each time but linking to your main existing UV account.

When you're all done, log in to your MAIN Flixster account and link it back to your main UV account and you should see all of the movies you just got for free. You could probably do this without uninstalling and just logout/in but I haven't tried that method.


** During the first free movie gifting for linking UV, If Fixster tries to give you one that you already have in your UV library, just wait a minute or so while it brings you back to Flixster, or click the top blue bar to refresh the process until it gives you a movie you don't have. If for some reason you see 2 of the blue bars up top (window inside a window), click the top most bar & you'll need to log in again, then continue with step 5.
