I just returned The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to my local redbox which is located out in front of Walgreens. This is the closest Red box to my house and I love how cheap and convenient the whole Redbox program is. My only complaint is that when there is a line it takes a long time. There should be some kind of courtesy built into their program that lets the people that want to sit there and browse the movies for 10 minutes and for the people that want to make a quick drop off to beat the 9pm drop off time.

Well I am not sure when they did this but a second redbox machine was added recently and I couldn’t be happier. No more lines and no hassles. Oh yea i forgot to mention if you ever have had any kind of problem with a dvd not playing or reserving a movie only to find it not available when you get there, they are very generous with the free red box codes and then send them via email. Here is a sample and this is why I love Redbox!

Hi Louie
Per our conversation, please accept the following promo codes, good for free, one-day rentals of any DVD of your choice. The codes are valid for 45 days from today’s date. Here they are:

[promo codes]

To use a promo code at a Redbox kiosk, click the “Promo Code” button when you get to the checkout page. You’ll still be asked to swipe your card to cover any additional nights you hold on to your disc. You won’t be billed for your first rental night. Please note that promo codes can only be entered at Redbox kiosks and can’t be used for online reservations.

Only one promo code can be used per transaction.

If you have any more questions, please contact us at 1.866.REDBOX3 (1.866.733.2693).

2 Thoughts on “Redbox

  1. That was one of my main problems with Redbox too, I hated waiting outside in the freezing cold or scolding heat to get, or return a movie. I also I used to use their codes as often as I could find them, which made it that much more of a shock when I sat down and figured out how much I was spending there. I was averaging about twenty bucks a month between games and movies. That all changed when DISH, my employer, came out with Blockbuster @Home. Now I have more options (games and movies by mail, in-store exchanges, instant streaming, etc.), for about half what I was spending.
