FREE Movie Rental at Target Ticket

Target Ticket is offering a Free Rental using coupon code XBOXRENTAL.

Expires on 1/31/2015 and limited to 20,000 redemptions. This is a Frontpage Deal at SD, so you better hurry.

I got Predestination.

After renting the movie, you have 30 Days to start watching. So you can rent it now and watch it anytime in the next month. Once you start the movie, the rental will expire in 24-48 hours.

Thanks. In for Boyhood. Won't get to it right away, but I'll look forward to checking it out within the next couple of weeks.

Careful with that. I have no idea how popular Target's streaming service is but the code is only good for the first 20,000 uses. Two weeks could be way too long to wait.

I may not have been clear, but I went ahead and used the code to rent it. I just won't watch it right away, especially since it has a near 3-hour runtime.

Thanks. Did Predestination as well. If someone bumps this in 29 days maybe I'll watch it.

I'm saving my movie for the hope that it will be a nominee, like for special effects, so I can watch it during the Academy Award Challenge.

Re: FREE Movie Rental at Target Ticket

Watched "Let's Be Cops" last night- stupid movie, and Target Ticket had lots of compression artifacts and only 2-channel sound. (Picked a dumb movie to watch mainly because I didn't want to see a good movie ruined by the lack of 5.1 audio.)

I can't find it on the Xbox one anywhere. Only 360?

You have to rent a title first, then apply the credit.

But, the credit may be over now since it was limited to 20k people.

I went to rent a title, then in the cart entered that under promo, and it said it couldn't apply the credit to the account.

Re: FREE Movie Rental at Target Ticket

The code was only good for a limited # of uses. I expect it has been fully used at this point, since it also popped up on the Front Page at Slickdeals almost immediately after it was announced. Frankly, I'm surprised it lasted more than a few days.
