Tried to take advantage of this and have used Redbox too many times to count, tried two different types of credit cards (Visa and Mastercard), both returned an error message.

 

"This card not approved for games"

 

WTF is that?

No one else is having issues I'd call Redbox or your bank and ask the reason why it's not approving your cards.

Rented Crew 2 to tide me over until FH4, not bad.  Returned then used wifes account, but also noticed I can rent free again on mine, so will try that tomorrow for 3 nights in a row.

On my 3rd day of Crew 2, starting to like the game even more now, hopefully will price drop to 29.99 soon.

Card has been banned. Its what happens when you rent out so many times within a short period. Happened to me sometime last year. No way to undo it

Had this happen to me before and most recently yesterday. Rented both MHW & Fallout 4 on 9th. Returned them on 10th and rented Madden 19. Returned that yesterday and picked up MHW again. When I tried to get Fallout, it declined my card. Got the same message on my back up card.

 

Thought they just limited my account from renting games because in the past when my main cc was blocked, my backup would work fine. Then today I tried for Fallout again on my backup card, it went through ok. Kinda weird, but whatever it's working again

I pulled up the app and used the exact same card and it worked just fine. Previously I was using the actual website and that's where I was getting the error.

You guys got me worried. When redbox runs a promo like this, I keep renting 2x at a time, then return and rent again. Never had any issues though.
