[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!!

No luck for me. Rotten Tomatoes locks up at the "please wait while we add this movie to your collection." no movies.....

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.
Can you explain what you're doing what page, links etc?

I am going to rottentomatoes.com, logged in with an account (not facebook), go to rewards, only available option is to signup for UV account and when I click it it shows me a movie and a big yellow button to continue with facebook, that's it. I click it, login to facebook and then it goes back to the window and say it will add the movie to my collection, might take a few minutes, and just sits there and never ends... Confused wtf??

Thanks, the 30 movie glitch worked perfectly.
Too bad that most of the free movies are somewhat crappy.

See wiki. I didn't realize when I cut and pasted my post that the link didn't get pasted too, but I updated it, so it should all be there.

Some of them took quite awhile to connect for me, I just waited them out. They eventually worked.

Man, these two sites are full of glitches. It keeps letting me to rate five movies, and giving a free one afterwards. Cant' get to 30 free this way because there are only about 30 movies to rate (not the same as the free list), but better than nothing for those having troubles.

The only thing I'm doing to keep it going is opening a new window every time to this URL:

On IE: Signing up for UV, makes you sign in with Facebook, then just hangs saying "this may take a couple of minutes..."

On Chrome: When I click to sign up for UV, the Facebook friends covers the sign-up button and I can't get to it.

On Chrome - after opening up some other pages and going back, got FB friends removed and it worked.

Now, when I click to sign up for the newsletter again, it says continue, but then brings up the reward page instead of giving a free movie (and it shows that you've already done the newsletter offer). Maybe they fixed the glitch.

Couldn't get the rottentomatoes newsletter method to work but once I also logged into flixter via facebook, I got 20 movies by creating the same UV account on rotten tomatoes rinse repeat, go figure. On my 21st attempt got a network error. Seems they are patching things up.

Got my 21st using the pick 5 movies, and can repeat, but ones beyond the first don't show.

Highlight some text above fb friends and keep hitting tab until the highlight moves to the last fb friend. Then tab one last time, that should take you to the button and hit enter. This method was how I scored my Nexus 4, when I had to use a paperweight to hold down the enter button for an hour.

The absurdities of man-made technology.

I followed the instructions in the wiki but instead of subscribing to the newsletter, I clicked the sign up for a UV account. Weird thing is I'd tried it the exact same way in 3 browsers earlier and it wouldn't work. All of a sudden, I went back to it and it worked.

I would, but different people get different glitches and I did so many steps that I'm not sure I could reproduce it. But here's the most helpful troubleshooting guide I could offer for people that have tripped-up on the "official" wiki formula:

1. Clear browser cookies that show up by searching for "flixster" and "rotten"
2. Log out of facebook
3. Go to the rewards page of rottentomatoes and see what's available now (most probably will get the newsletter signup option clickable, I got the create UV account option)
4. Click option and sign up with fb
5. Then repeat sign up, red x, sign up, red x like a lab rat with a food lever
6. Optional: Hit my rep button after downloading the movies. Don't know what for, but it seems like the thing to do here, so when in Rome.

Just got my 30th to complete the collection that I might not even watch. Never give up! Belieber!
