Best Tips for Free Redbox Rentals

Here are some of our favorite tips for scoring free Redbox rentals.

  • Redbox frequently releases codes that are rent one, get one free. You don't have to get two rentals though, it will take off the full cost of just one rental!
  • The Redbox codes you used are tracked by your credit or debit card. So you can use each code per card you have.

How Do I Use a Free Redbox Code to Get a Free Movie?

Some of the Redbox codes can be used only at Redbox kiosks, some only through their website via Redbox On Demand, and others can be used at both.​

During checkout at a Redbox kiosk, select Rent with a Promo Code on the lower left corner of the screen; or if you're online, choose APPLY PROMO. You'll then be able to enter your promo code for a free Redbox movie.

Can I Use a Redbox Code More Than Once?

Usually not. Redbox remembers the codes that you've used with your account and won't allow you to use a code more than once.

Some codes have recently been released that you can use multiple times but these are few and far between.

What If My Free Redbox Code Doesn't Work?

If the Redbox code you're trying to use doesn't work, it will tell you at the end of the checkout process and try to charge you for the movie. You can cancel the transaction at this time or pay for the title.

Can I Try More Than One Redbox Coupon Code?

Yes. However, you'll have to start the checkout process over again and use a different code.

Will I Get Charged for a Late Redbox Return?

Yes. Be sure to return your free Redbox movie before 9:00 p.m. the next day or you'll get charged for an extra day's rental fee.
