    • nicolegammeter

      You are welcome! 🙂

      • Andrea

        I added the promo code and then it says $0 charge but it still wants me to add my card number. I did that but it still won’t work

  2. Ev

    Worked like a jewel… I used it for -$1.50 off of a video game. So I
    was able to get a PS3 Game for $0.53… That’s 53pennies!! Thanks for sharing
    the wealth.

  3. Patti

    I do not know where to enter friends help please and could you be descriptive as to where thank you much.

    • irelandsunshine

      When you go to the check out page, there is a spot to enter the promo code at the top. You also have to enter a card number as well. That is in case you are late turning it in you will be charged for the movie/game. Hope this helps.

  4. Lesli

    I rented the Lego movie on blu-ray and the code made it free.

    Just worked but then charged my bank account anyways..

    • Amanda C

      It will put a hold on your card for the amount the rental would have been but it will fall off in a couple days. They have to be able to verify that it’s a “good” card in case it doesn’t get returned.

      YW! 🙂

  10. Kim

    I rented the Lego movie and was able to print a $5 coupon off the purchase of The Lego Movie on Blue Ray Combo Pack or the Everything is Awesome Edition (Blue Ray 3D Combo Pack)

    • Kristin

      Cool! Did you enter the code at the kiosk, app, or online? I want to buy the movie for my boys but have been waiting for a coupon/deal.

      • Lisa

        I want to know, too!

        • Tomoko

          The $5 coupon link came with confirmation email.

  11. Karmyn

    Does anyone know if this code works at a kiosk?

  12. Bcbebs

    Thanks so much!

    • nicolegammeter

      You’re so welcome! 🙂

  14. Sarah

  15. Renee

    Works at kiosk!!

  16. YG

    Able to get two dvd (in two transactions) via redbox app.

  17. Heather Huffstickler

    It didn’t work for me! Bummed out!! 🙁

  18. Alana

    I read that you’re able to rent up to five, each in different transactions.

    Also, just to confirm…if I rent tomorrow, 7/17, then would I have to return it by 7/17 9PM, or 7/18 by 9PM?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Brittney

      You have to return it by 9pm the next day. So if you rent it on 7/17 it is not due till 7/18 by 9pm

    • RT

      If you reserve it today 6/16 but don’t pick it up until 6/17 you still have to have it back by 6/17 at 9pm. If you wait and rent it tomorrow 6/17 then you have until 6/18 to return it!

  19. YG

    If u rent tomorrow 7/17, then return 7/18 9pm. If u reserve 7/16, pick up 7/17, still have to return by 7/17 9pm. Just talked to redbox rep abt reserving online.

  20. wendy

    You can use 5xs…just do them separately and check out

    • Nicky

      Could you possibly explained how you use it 5 times? TIA

  21. Rita

    Can anyone please explain how the redbox kiosk works?

  22. Shannon

    It worked! My kids are gonna love me!! Thank you for making me cool!

  23. Jade

    @Rita: To use the promo code at the kiosk, select a movie to add to your cart, on the bottom right of screen it has a button for “promo code”. Once selected, there’s a keypad onscreen where you’d type “FRIENDS”. Once applied, it should show a balance of $ 0.00. I think you can select “Continue” and your movie will be dispensed. Otherwise you might have to swipe your credit card if you’re a new user & haven’t established an account. It won’t charge your card unless you return it past 9pm the following day. Anyway, you can do this 5x in separate transactions according to a comment above. Good luck!

    • Rita

      Thanks Jade!!

  24. Ashley

    Worked like a charm; thanks!!!

  25. Leah

    Thanks for the code, Collin! Unfortunately, when I went to pick up my reserved movie, the kiosk didn’t work and wouldn’t respond at all to my tapping on the screen. My kids were so disappointed. 🙁 I emailed them, so maybe they’ll give me another code to use sometime?

    • Kelly

      Leah, call them and tell them the kiosk wasn’t working, they’ll give you an account credit that’s linked to the credit card you selected as your payment method. Same thing happened to us once

    • Janell

      Rent it from a different kiosk and call and cancel the other one.

  26. hon h

    worked for me

  27. RT

    If anyone is looking for a movie recommendation, “About Time” is a sweet, funny, tear-jerking feel good movie!

    • Paul

      I recommend the Jason Bateman movie “Bad Words”. I watched it, last week, and it was one of the funniest movies i’ve seen, in a long time. Not exactly a ‘family’ movie. But, really funny.

  28. Evan

    Worked for me!
    Hubby & I will check out About Last Night while kids are out of town!!

  29. Christy

    Worked for me for 5 movies! Thanks a bunch!

  30. Lizzette

  32. Rosalinda Gonzalez

  33. Di G

    I have been waiting and wanting to see Saving Mr. Banks for months…I thoroughly enjoyed it tonight for free from my local RedBox…Thank You!

    • Lisa

      I have a friend in that movie! She works at Disneyland and they needed park goers to be in the background for the scenes at Disneyland.

  34. Melanie Couzens

    Thank you Collin! I absolutely LOVE Redbox. They are one of the best things to happen to the entertainment market in a long time.

  35. ric
