Redbox is celebrating the rental of its three billionth disc in the U.S. this month by offering a FREE one-day movie or video game rental from any Redbox location in the USA on one day only. That day would be today, Thursday, August 1st. You’ll have to check the Redbox Facebook page for the promotional code.
Just so you know –
- the 3 billionth Redbox rental, The Call, by Sony Pictures, was rented at a Walgreens in Littleton, Colo. The next Redbox rental was a PlayStation® 3 video game, The Last of Us, rented at a Walmart Supercenter in Kennesaw, Ga.
- Redbox reached 1 billion rentals in its seventh year of operation, and it notched 2 billion total rentals just 18 months later, in March 2012.
- If the 3 billion discs were laid side by side, they would wrap around the world nearly nine times (approximately 223,693 miles).
