Redbox Instagram page
What We Like
  • A great place to find free Redbox codes if you're already a social media user.

  • Works over and over, even if you're not a new Redbox customer.

What We Don't Like
  • You have to be a social media user to stay on top of any updates.

  • Other, irrelevant social media posts are shown, too, in addition to any Redbox codes.

Redbox gives out a ton of Facebook freebies. On the Redbox Facebook page, they frequently give out free codes for a night's rental. To get your free Redbox Facebook codes, become a fan of Redbox and watch your news feed. Occasionally you'll see a wall update from Redbox announcing a free Redbox code.

Redbox also has a @redbox Twitter account that's another good place to monitor for any brand new Redbox deals and promo codes. If you enable mobile push alerts, you'll be among the first to catch any Redbox codes, should they announce them there.

One last thing you can follow is the Redbox Instagram account. Watch it for contests and other perks that non-followers might be missing out on.

What We Like
  • Redbox codes are hard to miss if you're already visiting a kiosk.

What We Don't Like
  • Isn't as easy as the other methods to finding free Redbox codes.

A lot of times, the place where a kiosk is located will give out codes for free Redbox rentals. This might be a grocery store, fast food restaurant, or convenience store.

Be sure to keep a careful eye out for them on signs, receipts, and flyers you see at these places.

  • How do I enter a promo code in the Redbox app?

    You use promo codes when you go to check out in the Redbox app. Select your rental as usual, and then click Continue to Checkout from the My Bag screen. Before you finalize the transaction, you can enter promo codes in the appropriate field.

  • How do I use a Redbox code online?

    Just like in the app, you'll enter codes just before you finalize a rental. Click the Apply Promo link on the checkout page. You'll need a credit card on file to check out, but the site won't charge you if you're redeeming a free rental.
