[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!!

Okay, just updated the Wiki with the instructions and alphabetized the movie list and formatted it pretty Smilie.

Thanks, OP!

When I go to the rewards, I see only Signup for UV and when I do that, it gives me a movie and when I click Sign up for it.

It sits on a message "Please wait while we add the movie to your collection".

How do I get past this offer to get to News Letter Offer?

Thanks

I'm following the instructions but I don't get a message that I got the free movie. In the window, it loads the page I was just one asking me to sign up for newsletter, refer friends, etc...

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Edit - I just got it to work in IE but instead of signing up for the newsletter over and over, I did it by signing up for a UV account instead. Worked perfectly that way.

Do you have a symbol in the e-mail address you send to UV? If so, that's the problem.

If not, I'm not sure what the problem is. It came up quick for me (but I was trying at the time on Flixster.com).

Maybe try reloading the page and seeing if you get the News Letter Offer?

I used Chrome browser to get past that, but when I did Sign up for news letter offer and clicked x to close it and redo it. It goes to the rewards page with sign up for news letter struck out in the pop up.

Only got one free movie...

Are you sure you are getting more than one, it just switches the movie around. If you go to your list of Movies owned you will only see the last one.

Hmmm, it's possible that they fixed it?

It never redirected for me when I clicked the X. It just stayed on the same page....

ED: Nope, just tried it with a different Facebook account, and it works for me. I am doing this in Incognito mode in Chrome (CTRL-SHIFT-N). Maybe that's allowing it to work for me.

SD effect?

Please wait while we add this movie to your collection.
This may take a couple of minutes...

It's been a couple minutes. I did get Austin Powers through Flixter.com's reward page, but it's a one time deal.

Great job, poster, that worked to get me the 30 movies. Rep given and I'm going to update the wiki with that method since it's the best.
Thanks man, I struck out every other way posted here, so I'm glad this is working for people.

When I tried the exact same method 20 minutes earlier, no, I wasn't getting the movies. Cookies must have timed out or something because I had left the window open, sat down to try again and I started getting the movie showing up in the gift box and it added it to my movies. I have all 30 in my list now.
