I Love Redbox

Ok I think I may have a problem.

I just discovered rebox at Wegman's. It has been there for a while but I never really paid attention to it until this past Sunday. I had an evening with not a lot planned and decided to get myself a movie. $1 a night How could I go wrong.

Well it's been 3 nights of redbox movies! Yippee! I've spent 3 whole dollars this week! I don't know what has possessed me to sit around watching movies all week long.I think it's the price and the lure of current movies! (I usually get movies from the library that are like 3 years old). I've seen 27 Dresses, Juno, and Wild Hogs (I feel so current!)

The best thing is, my friend Salli pointed me in the direction of the FREE redbox code. If you enter your cell phone# at the Redbox site they will send you a text message with a code for a free movie every Monday. A FREE movie. Now that I can get into! (and now I have to learn how to receive a text message on my phone!) But, now that my movie marathon is coming to an end I'm going to look forward to my new weekly Monday Movie Night!

I'm thinking of trying this this week. I got the email promo code, but I'm unsure how to use it (I realize I am completely out of touch with society, now.) Is there an automated checkout process? Do I print out the email? If I have a text with the free code, how do I redeem it? Aggggghhhh......*throws hands up*

He he! I know how you feel. I felt very conspicuous checking out the first time as I had no idea what I was doing. It's really easy though. As long as you have the code you don't have to print anything out and bring it with you. There is a place to put the code in on the screen. I think you still need a credit card or debit card though because you'll get charged for your "free" movie if you keep it more than one night.

At our library you get to keep the movie for a week and it's free. But like I said in the post, everything is like 3 years old (or at least it seems like that) not that you can't find a good movie from 3 years ago but it was nice being able to choose from current movies and say "oh yeah. I wanted to see that" I have a hard time remembering what I wanted to see at the theater 3 years ago!
