Free Game and DVD Rental from Redbox

redbox

Redbox is offering a free video game rental when you text the code:

e3

to 727-272.

My code doesn’t expire until June 30, so lots of time to use it!  Please note this is for a video game rental and not a DVD rental.

If you would like a movie instead, today only (Wednesday), they are offering a free DVD with code:

JUNE17

tested the code with the Redbox App as well as online and both worked perfectly! On occasion these codes don’t work when you just drive directly to Redbox so please take that into consideration. I recommend going online first and reserving your movie  or using the app at the location of your choice.  You can confirm the code works and pick up the movie at your convenience.
