For today only, Aug. 25, Redbook is offering free one-night DVD movie rentals in honor of America's Movie Night.

The free promotional offer from Redbox for a one-night DVD rental is only available on Aug. 25 and lasts throughout the evening, according to Redbox, 'cause everyone loves movies - especially free movies!

Courtesy of Redbox, the free rental encourages people in the U.S. to stay in for an evening to watch a movie to make sure that everyone around the country enjoys some entertainment with their family & friends.

Facebook users can receive a promotion code for the free movie by clicking like on Redbox's Facebook page. This will redirect the user to another page in which they can opt to receive the special America's Movie Night code via email or text message and an option to send an offer code to friends.

The one-night free DVD is valid only on Aug. 25 between 12 a.m. CT and 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 25 for one time use. Those who take advantage of the offer must supply their payment information, as it is necessary for rental through Redbox, and will only be charged for additional days exceeding the one day offer.

Redbox is an automated DVD rental service which has rented over 1.5 billion movies nationwide. Redbox uses a different model than its competitor Netflix, which sends DVDs through the mail. Instead, it offers nearly 30,000 kiosk locations in the U.S., including many fast food, grocery and convenience store chains. Owned by Coinstar, Redbox offers Blu-ray movies, regular movies, and video games in its self-service kiosks.

Recently, following Netflix's lead to increase profits, Redbox has raised the price of its rentals from $1 to $1.20 per day in select states, including Oregon, Texas, California and Florida. The 20 percent price increase has not been implemented nationwide, but rather is an experimental test in individual markets.
