Cabin in the Woods was AWESOME!!! Its so out there and over the top its just a fun movie to watch and have a good time.


Honestly, I just watched it and my thoughts were "Glad I didn't pay to watch this, especially not in the theater"

I have not, but have heard of it. Some people are super shady. Try to call or email support and explain the situation. They should be able to track who had it last and you should be in the clear.

I can't imagine that a game this new has had more than one previous renter. I assume they must be using stolen credit cards or something if it continues to be a problem.

Yeah, either stolen, or I don't know if you can use those rechargeable CC cards at Red Box, but if so I imagine that is the case.

I've heard that you can't. Of course I've had a ton of different ones over the years and some you just pull off the shelf and activate and others have your full name and address attached. I suppose the latter may work, and there is no verification of your info like a real credit card.

Yeah, some of the ones I've gotten as rebates I've been able to use on stuff like this, online at least for like trials, etc. And I shouldn't find it funny, but I do find it funny a thief thought buying it MSRP for $60 was too much so he made his stolen money stretch by renting and stealing. Might have even used the code too...lol

Of course the question is, why go back for the fake return? If you're going to steal something why bother making the dummy disc? Maybe Redbox just doesn't go after the thieves.

Because if it is stolen, everyday you don't return it's a dollar whatever charge and then a maxout of the MSRP plus whatever it is Redbox charges. I'm assuming they have that earmarked for some other illegal activity.

Just got off the phone with a rep. Looks like I should be clear. Was a little bit worry because I used a my dads cards in order to get in on another free rental. I never used that card before and didn't even give an email at check out. In fact when I had notice it wasn't Dishonored but didn't have my phone so had to return back home just to call them up. I ending up having to call twice because I used this promotion and they where gonna just give me only one free DVD rental promotion, call was dropped. After the second call got Two Dvd rental codes.

I did, I forget what movie I tried to rent, but it came out as I think a Scooby Do movie.... I immediately upon noticing that put it right back into the machine and when I got home I emailed them, they should be able to give you another free code hopefully, and maybe block that barcode from being rented until someone pulls it out.

Yeah, they have been pretty good with making things right on the CSR side when a disc is unplayable/scratched. Only problem I ever ran into was a few years back when I returned three DVDs, for some reason their system never marked the third one as returned, and then they tried to charge me like 10 days rental because someone else rented it after me and didn't return it for 10 days. They tried the whole free code business, but I told them straight up they either refund me or I was disputing with my CC and then they did a refund.

Edit:
Also - OMG DISHONORED YOU JUST CAME OUT AND I ALREADY HAVE TO DL AND INSTALL AN UPDATE FOR YOU I HATE YOU RANT RANT RANT.

Got Dishonored. Remembered this thread as I was walking out of Wal-Mart and BAM, Dishonored was there!

I'm just glad that the promo code was easy to remember.

should always have your phone when you use redbox...

just wait until the arm DROPS THe item and it never comes out of the box or it never gets checked back in... then is when you panic :)

happened to me 3 times in the past 2 weeks (movie never came out of the box) you can hear the movie being dropped
WOOOO I STINK

No Dishonored at either of the Redboxes I tried, but I got Uncharted 3 and Hugo, the latter of which I just watched with the family.

I rented Max Payne from a kiosk a few months back and someone had cut the barcode label off the game and stuck it on the plastic case just well enough that it read it as returned. I got 2 free codes out of it but it sucked all the same.
