Redbox movie rental deal

Kiosk movie provider, Redbox, is offering a deal this month: rent three get one free.  The details:  you must rent between April 14 and April 30.  But, an even better deal, when you can find them, is to get these rentals for free with various coupon codes that appear on third-party websites.  I will give you a head start: try entering the code BREAKROOM when you rent next time.  It may only be a first-time customer code, meaning, one per customer, but try it and see if it works multiple times. 

Nevertheless, there's definitely a case to be made for visiting a consumer product company's website often and signing up for its newsletters.  In this case, the offer isn't even listed on their website, which is perplexing. 

While the Redbox offer period is still very much valid, I didn't get this email until today, two days after the offer began.  It makes you wonder if there is a bit of strategy in that.  If you feel like you are going to miss a great deal if you don't act on it fast enough, you might be more inclined to take advantage of it, and, that much faster.
