Redbox free rental codes don't work

I tried three Redbox codes tonight that should have worked: NEWYEAR, OOPS, and HDU942. They all expire at midnight. But, none of them worked.

I already complained to Redbox after NEWYEAR didn’t work. Then, they sent all Redbox users an apology email and a new code: OOPS.

Redbox, fix the system. I don’t care that it’s a buck a night, but don’t give away free codes that don’t even work.

  1. Sometimes, if a machine has just accepted a code from someone else it will prevent another code to be used, even if it’s by someone else, atleast thats what I’ve heard. I use free monday codes all the time and haven’t had a problem yet.
