Walgreens touts Redbox movie rentals giveaway
DEERFIELD, Ill. — Walgreens will reward 1 million customers at its stores nationwide on Thanksgiving Day with a free one-day Redbox DVD rental, the drug store chain announced.
The DVD rental, which will be given to the first 130 customers (not including prescription purchases) at the chain's more than 7,700 locations, will be valid at all Walgreens Redbox locations from Thanksgiving Day through Dec. 24.
“We’re pleased to build upon our existing relationship with Redbox to offer this reward to our early bird shoppers this Thanksgiving,” Walgreens divisional merchandise manager for front-end services Bob Cinq-Mars said. “The holidays are a great time to gather the family for a movie. This will be a good chance for some to try out the service for the first time and a nice bonus for many others who have long enjoyed the convenience and value of Redbox rentals at their neighborhood Walgreens.”
