01Movie and Game Rentals from Redbox
In the years that I've been renting movies from Redbox, I've never spent a dime on one. I always use a free Redbox code to rent DVDs as well as the occasional game rental. Redbox has a great selection of movies and it's the only place that I rent movies from.
Here are some Redbox tips and tricks that includes a few insider tips on how I get every rental there for free.
How else do I curb by entertainment costs? If I'm too lazy to get out to the Redbox, I'll watch a free movie online. I also occasionally go the movie theater for free by getting free tickets to movie premieres.
