Redbox Offers Free Game Rentals17 Aug, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
From Aug. 18 to 22 Redbox will offer free, one-day video game rentals when customers reserve a game online, the kiosk operator announced.
“Games Week was one of our most popular games promotions last year, so we’re bringing it back this year for round two,” said Joel Resnik, VP of video games for Redbox. “Games Week is a fantastic way for everyone to get a quick hands-on trial of the hottest games Redbox offers.”
With gaming rentals running $2 a day, the promotion should help Redbox boost its gaming segment, with most consumers choosing to keep gaming rentals out for more than one day.
New PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii games available include The Smurfs 2 (Wii and Xbox 360), Minecraft (Xbox) and The Last of Us (PS3).
