OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Redbox, America's destination for new-release entertainment, today announced a sweepstakes in conjunction with Visa. Now through the end of September, consumers can enter to win a $500 Visa gift card when they join Redbox Play Pass—Redbox's loyalty program—and earn more entries when they add a Visa card to their Redbox accounts.
"We're thrilled to be working with Visa," said Mike Wokosin, vice president of digital marketing for Redbox. "The sweepstakes will help us bring the great value of Redbox Play Pass to more consumers who love Redbox and want to earn rewards for their rentals."
To enter, consumers must visit the sweepstakes page between now and September 30 and create a Redbox account or log into their existing account. From there, they'll earn one sweeps entry if they join Redbox Play Pass, and another two entries if they add any Visa credit or debit card as their default form of payment. When the sweeps ends, 108 lucky entrants will win a $500 Visa gift card.
"Millions of Redbox customers already rely on Visa to help them bring home the latest new-release movies and games from Redbox," said Bill Dobbins, Head of Business Development for Visa. "This is a great opportunity to partner with Redbox and help bring Visa's convenience and ease to even more Redbox customers."
