Redbox Free Rental Code

redbox

I posted a free Redbox code yesterday that is valid for an entire week.

I have another one for you that I believe is valid today only (7/30).

Usually these codes are only valid if you reserve your movie online first and enter the promo code.  You can pick up at whatever location you choose.

If you prefer to drive directly to your location without reserving it first, the code may not work for you.

Here is your promo code:

Redbox: Free Rental Code

There is a new code from Redbox that you can text and they will send you a unique code to use within one week.

My code came instantly.

Just text MOVIENIGHT to 727272 to get the code.

What are you renting tonight?  I might pick up Get Hard- Kevin Hart cracks me up.
