Do you often rent DVDs from your local Redbox kiosk? Or maybe you don't rent them often, but you would if you had some free credits to use. Well you're in luck! I'm going to let you in on a little secret that will allow you to get 4 Redbox kiosk rentals without requiring you to spend a single penny of your money.
How To Get 4 Free Redbox Kiosk Rental Credits
So the trick isn't complicated whatsoever, but most people don't realize it until I explain it to them. Redbox Instant is a new video streaming service brought fourth by the Redbox company to compete with the likes of Amazon Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and Netflix. The service has only been available for a few months so many people do not know about it or have yet to give the service a try.
The great benefit to the recent launch of Redbox Instant is that they are allowing anyone to sign up for a free 30-day trial of the service. The service does require an active credit card to sign up, but can be cancelled anytime before your 30-day trial period is up so you won't be billed for the next month's service. Now with this free trial you receive unlimited streaming capabilities from your computer or compatible 3rd party device. In addition, Redbox Instant grants you 4 free kiosk rental ‘credits' each month and the free trial period still includes these rental credits!
So the plan is you sign up for the free 30-day trial Redbox Instant trial & enter valid credit card information. You WILL NOT be charged anything to this credit card until your 30-day period is up so don't worry! Once your nearing your 25th-29th day, simply log into your account and cancel it so you are not charged for the next month. This cancellation process is simple and I've posted a step-by-step guide showing you exactly how to cancel your account so you won't run into any issues.
What Defines A ‘Credit'?
So you're probably wondering what I mean when I say you receive free rental ‘credits' and I wondered the same when I first heard about it. Let me clear it up for you, Redbox defines a ‘rental credit' as follows:
You also get 4 DVD credits every month to use at your friendly neighborhood Redbox location – included! You can use your credits to pay when you pick up your discs. Each credit is good for 1 overnight rental of 1 DVD. If you keep your DVD an extra night, it just uses another credit. You won't be charged until your credits are all used up. And the next month it refills to 4 DVD credits again.
This means in order to use these 4 rental credits properly you will need to rent a DVD one day and return it the next day or else you'll use multiple credits for one rental which isn't the best case scenario.
What's The Catch?
There is really no catch and you'll receive 4 rental credits as well as unlimited streaming benefits for 30 days at no charge. If you don't want to extend your account and be billed for the following months, you will need to remember to cancel your account AHEAD of the trial period's ending. I suggest setting an alarm on your phone or marking your calendar to remind you to cancel before it is too late.
