RedBox Codes iPhone and Android apps put free movie rentals in your pocket


Over the past few months RedBox has moved from an interesting display in my local grocery store to the perfect companion to our Netflix subscription. RedBox rentals are much cheaper than similar on-demand offers from our cable company and thanks to the RedBox Codes app for Android and the Inside RedBox Pro iPhone app, I can always find free RedBox promo codes.

The app I use on my Motorola Droid is the RedBox Codes app, which is free and does only one thing -- show me the latest RedBox coupon codes whenever I need one. The app includes success rates and notes about where the code can be used as well as any known expiration dates. For a more full featured RedBox app, without promo codes, you should look at the 99-cent RedBoxer app.

The Inside RedBox Pro app available on the iPhone isn't free, but for the cost of a RedBox Rental you get access to RedBox locations, including what movies are available, and Red Box Promo codes for free rentals. You can also view movie information and create a queue of movies you want to rent from RedBox.

Like all coupon codes distributed online there will always be some that don't work, but my experience with the RedBox Codes app has been filled, so far, with working codes.

My local grocery store sends me a coupon every few weeks and RedBox has been known to pass out code after code that Julia Scott's Bargain Babe shares with our readers, but it's great to be able to get a free rental anytime I am at a RedBox by simply launching an app. We don't always use the app to get a free movie, but as a cheap way to grab a movie while we are out and keep it for an extra day without wasting a dollar.
