Redbox Kick Starts October Weekends with Free One-Night Movie Thursdays

MARKHAM, Ontario, Oct. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fridays get all the attention: It's the end of the work week and the start to a care-free weekend. Redbox is changing that with Free Movie Thursdays – customers can get a free one-night DVD rental each Thursday at all Redbox® kiosks across Canada throughout the month of October. 

"What's better than getting a quality movie when you want it, where you want it, all for free?" said Kate Brennan, senior communications manager at Redbox. "We're inviting our customers in Canada to get a head start on the weekend by picking up a free one-night rental at Redbox. Whether you're a returning customer, or new to Redbox, we hope you'll enjoy a movie on us!"

To receive a free one-night DVD rental on Thursdays in October (Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23 or 30), all you'll need to do is visit a Redbox kiosk, enter the promo code THURSDAY at checkout, and swipe a valid credit card to cover any additional nights you hold onto the DVD. If you return your DVD by 9:00 p.m. local time the next day, there won't be a charge. Enter your email at checkout to be sent a receipt.

From highly-anticipated new release titles such as "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Neighbors" and "The Fault in Our Stars," to recent releases like "The Other Woman," "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Brick Mansions," starring Paul Walker, Redbox offers a variety of genres in convenient locations, in both DVD and Blu-ray Disc® formats.
