Redbox also has a Twitter account @redbox 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 place you can follow Redbox is their Instagram account. Watch it for contests and other perks that non-followers might be missing out on.
