Redbox iPhone app

Renting Redbox movies is extremely inexpensive — the 99-cent per night rentals are why the company is currently battling three of the big Hollywood studios — but a new iPhone app is aimed at making it even cheaper. The app, which launches Monday, tracks down and ranks free rental promo codes; developer Neese Products is charging 99-cents.

Users can rank the promo codes based on their “validity” and “usefulness;” the app sends code updates twice daily. There’s no-rev share with Redbox parent Coinstar, because it’s not a Coinstar or Redbox-branded app. Redbox currently offers SMS-based alerts, but it’s not clear whether those alerts include discount codes. It’s the first app from Phoenix-based Neese Products, which says it develops products designed to solve “everyday household problems.”

  1. I understand entirely what you’re saying, but I’m not sure what the answer to it would be. Sure, it’s a moral dilemma. I know for myself, I might nab a code for the redbox rentals and only use it once in two months, but I think using it every day of the week to get a free rental might be a little excessive, but that’s just the way I feel. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

    Some people might even look at it as though the business is out to make a buck and you’re trying to do so too. Or well, save your money, anyway. It all comes down to the dilemma of a bargain hunter. Do you feel bad taking advantage of a company or look at it as business as usual?
