Free Redbox Movie Night for Facebook "Likes"

Family movie night in our house is Friday, but we may make it Thursday this week -- if I'm willing to shamelessly give up one of my precious Facebook "likes" to Redbox.

And you can do it yourself -- "like" the Redbox Facebook page -- to get a special promotional code good for a free movie one day only, today, May 12, 2011.

While this isn't exactly a screaming deal -- rentals are $1 for DVDs and you only get a dollar off if you rent a Blu-ray Disk ($1.50) or video game ($2) -- it could give you the opportunity you've been looking for to try the service, though, as usual, you'll have to return the movie by 9 p.m. local time (the local time of your Redbox kiosk). These kiosks can be found at McDonald's restaurants, 7-Eleven convenience stores, Wal-Marts, and many other grocery and convenience store chains. And if you don't bring the movie back on time, you'll have to pay for it.

For a one-dollar offer, however, the terms and conditions are rather...immense.
