Pretty good idea, ah?
Like Trevor said, whether or not you post asking for the code, it gets posted anyway. Since they're one time use now, you can have them text you your own code to your cell phone.

Re: Unofficial Redbox DVD Rental Thread

I was about to post the same thing. Same code, so it is universal.

Re: Unofficial Redbox DVD Rental Thread

Well-
It looks like codes are the only way I'm going to get Redbox rentals. In central PA, they raised the rates to $2 for the first night, $1 for each extra night. This makes me less inclined to take chances on items I wouldn't normally rent. Plus Blockbuster sent my a card for 1.99 rentals until Nov 22 so I don't feel rushed to watch it in one night when I have a whole week thru Blockbuster.

Re: Unofficial Redbox DVD Rental Thread

Anybody know how I can sign up for the universal code to be sent to my phone? I got the one time use code and thought I could use it again but it said "promo code already used". I didn't realize there was another code that's a "universal" code. I'm not going to make another trip out there but for the future, I'd like to know how I can get the universal code as well.

Looks like your answer was posted a few posts above.

It won't be sent to your phone, but apparently some codes are posted on twitter. Another course of action would be to monitor/subscribe to this thread since universal codes are often posted here when one becomes available.



My idiot story for the day: I stopped by the Redbox and used the universal code to pick up a couple of DVDs (different CCs), then entered in the one time use code. As the DVD was being dispensed, I was reading all the upcoming releases and reached over to get the DVD and accidentally gave it a slight nudge and the machine sucked it back in. The screen said "something wrong happened during this transaction, your credit card won't be charged" then went back to the start screen. When I tried to use the code again, it said "already used" Oh well, I still had a couple. I may shoot off an e-mail to them shortly. It seems as if I've heard their customer service is pretty good and maybe they'll send me a replacement code.

Re: Unofficial Redbox DVD Rental Thread

Just trying to figure out if there's a way for me to get the code on my phone so I don't have to go home first to check the forums and then go back out.

I do get the text for the one time use code, but I was asking about getting the universal code on my phone too.

Re: Redbox and Blockbuster Express Codes Thread

Here's a new code: DLLNS26
It apparently came from a grocery store, I don't know if it's supposed to work everywhere, but it has so far.

Re: Redbox and Blockbuster Express Codes Thread

Looks like the universal monthly codes will be a thing of the past... Guess I'll have to pay the 10 cent charge for a text message on my cell phone now...(unless they are just trying to scare us into forking over our cell phone number and will still distribute a universal code?)

Here is the text from the email:

As a loyal redbox customer, we want to make sure you know about an upcoming change to our Monthly Movie Monday program. Beginning Monday, December 7, the Monthly Movie Monday promo code will be distributed exclusively via text message to customers signed up to the redbox SMS Network.

All codes will be unique and can only be redeemed once. If you get your code from a friend, online or in an email, the code will NOT work. The only way to guarantee your code is valid is to join the SMS Network at redbox.com.

For those with Stop & Shop locations (and/or other affiliated stores?)

Looks like this offer ends tomorrow 12/3/09, I just found it today. It's in this weeks S&S ad.
5 Free Redbox rentals when you buy $20 in participating Proctor & Gamble products at Stop & Shop.

I bought 2 packs of Bounty paper towels on sale for $9.99 and some fabric softener, and got a coupon printed out at checkout. It has 5 one-time use promo codes printed on it. The codes expire on 01/03/10.

Re: Redbox and Blockbuster Express Codes Thread

While on the road during the holiday weekend, I stopped at a McDonald's for a quick bite. There were several advertisements for a free Redbox code with the purchase of a large value meal. I ordered one and discovered it's a code on the pull-off tab affixed to the large drink cups (similar to how codes were distributed some time back). I'm assuming this is a national promotion.

Non-sharable text code just received for the monthly Redbox Monday freebie. Will update if they change their mind and put out a redbox or twitter freebie, but they sounded pretty firm in that those are over.

There was never a need for it anyway. We always have and always will post any free codes as they arrive.
