Are redbox egiftcards able to be used on buying games? I see Groupon has $20 egiftcards for $12.

This is interesting if it works....


The Groupon site says it can only be used for movies, not games or streaming.

Not sure if that applies to purchased as well though.

The best way to get the sticker off is to hold a hair dryer over it for about 20 seconds, then slide your finger nail under the rim of the sticker. You should be able to just lift the sticker off in one or two pieces that way. I don't recommend doing that with PS4  games though as it can easily pull the artwork off. Xb1 games don't have the art on the inner rim so it's much safer.

 

Or just take them in with the stickers and have your receipt ready. If they say no, you can always peel later and take them elsewhere.

I did it on the PS4 with one I got recently, I didn't remove any of the paint/ink but I was rather careful. I had to get it pretty warm/hot though, which I was a bit nervous about, but seems to have worked. They didn't come off in 1 piece and it took some picking with my nail and a little goo gone, but I'm pleased with the result, sans actual case/artwork but that's part of the Redbox "charm".

First time buying from Red Box, what exactly do you mean by paper copies? Are they bootleg discs or actual paper with just the barcode?

Some assbags make a photocopy of the disc and put it in the case. The machine sees it as the real thing since it just scans for a barcode.

Be warned:  PS4 version of TMNT has "REDBOX" engraved around the disc.  

Just like transformers, seems like some kind of agreement between Redbox and PlatinumGames and/or Activision.

Prices are live on the app, but not at the kiosk in my area.   Checked out 2 different locations.

Buy them online for pickup?
