blockbuster express coupon code

Blockbuster Express is making a change to their DVD rental program, which means you will have to try a little harder for free movies. Instead of releasing a bunch of multi-use codes for free $1 DVD rentals, they are now requiring you to send a text in order to receive a one-time use code.

***To see more codes go here.***

In order to receive your exclusive, one-time use codes, text any of keywords below to 39777.

There are some positives to this though, the new codes that are sent to your phone are for $1 off ANY DVD rental (so you can get the $1 rental FREE or save $1 on new releases). Also, you have 10 days from the time you text the keyword to use your code, so you can space them out and not feel like you need to rent 5 movies at once.

Blockbuster Keywords


There is a max of 5 movies per credit card per day. The previous codes I’ve posted may or may not work up until their expiration date.

      Aww this stinks for me, I have Family Mobile which does not support texting these type of numbers :( No more free movies for us…

    • Pollard1184

      Bummer for me too. We chose not to pay the extra for texting/web access for our phone plan. No more free movies.

        I was doing the same thing until just recently when I upgraded to Verizon’s Droid before they switched their data plan. Just a thought, if your text cost is less than $1, you still would save money. I was charged $.10 per text so you still would save $.90. Not sure it that’s helpful or not but it was just a thought. :)

      • Crafty_cat_86

        me too :(

    • In light of their new pricing system this actually is much nicer. I have recently gone to rent one of the newer releases ($3) and wished that my code would work for a discount if nothing else.

      Will they be releasing more of those keywords over time?

      Thanks for keeping us up to date!

    • Becky

      I texted the words, but haven’t heard anything back…is there a waiting period before it gets activated to send the codes back?

      • Hhbeverly

        Me, too.  Anyone have any success getting a code?

        • Thenasworthys

          I did right now with circus, but not with hero!

    • Jenni P.

      This change stinks for those of us that don’t have cell phones.

    • Redhot51

      I don’t like the new pricing schedule.  It’s cheaper to just go to Redbox for new releases even with the $1 off.

      • Anonymous

        I agree. This new $3-$2-$1 pricing tier stinks. Back to Redbox we go!

    • Tmac

      I can’t get the keywords to work. I keep getting texts back that says keyword is not recognized.

    • My best friend Kyle got $54/hour just working on the computer. She have been unemployed for 4 months but last month her check was $8160 just working on the internet for few hours. Read about it Here StrongrichDOTcom

    • PS

      I don’t do texting so this really sucks!! So no free movies for me either and I don’t give my phome number out!!  If you text them, they will have your number and then this could jack up your phone bill if you don’t have unlimited calling as this could prompt teller marketing calls and using up minutes!!!!! To bad I liked the way it was!!  Enjoy those who can use this new way!!

      • You could always get movies from a local library – mine checks out movies for free, and you have 2 weeks to return them!

        • Talawack

          you’re an idiot.

    • Reastman9622

      I tried all of the codes in the left hand colmn n none of them work:(

      • Anonymous

        Just to make sure, these aren’t codes for free movies.  These are words you text to Blockbuster and they will send you a one-time-use code to your cell phone.

        Use one of the words, get a text with a code.  Wait until you need another freebie and use a different word.  If you watch a movie a week it will last you quite a while!

        Unless you are getting the same issues as others below and not getting a reply from Blockbuster. Their system may be overloaded because of 1,000’s of people all trying at the same time? Give it a bit and see if it comes over eventually. HTH!

        • semper_fi_marine

          So you are saying that you have to send a new word every time you want a new code?  Thanks.

          • Anonymous

            Yes.  But, that’s better because you have access to a couple dozen codes that won’t all expire in a couple weeks.  You can use them as you need them, instead of them expiring on you before you get a chance!

    • Spleko

      Boo!  I don’t use texting.  :-(

      • Talawack

        You’re an idiot.

    • Ald031083

      I used circus and I got a reply back in like 2 minutes.

    • Kamissbach

      I tried all the codes on the right and none of them work didn’t get anything… :(

    • Hhbeverly

      It took 45 minutes to get my code (this could be due to AT&T though) and I used “HERO” but I got one!

    • Ghender6

      it worked for CIRCUS

    • Worked for me in seconds…

    • Reneamarie

      how do you text to 39777? do i just enter 39777 as the phone number?

      • Ms Rein

        Yp. Numbers that you text to dont have to be a full 10 digits

        • Reneamarie

      Search for Pinger’s Text Free – it works from you computer :)  I use it with my students so they can text but can’t call me.

      • Karentracy1

        I have text free but codes won’t work. It’s not supported.I tried. Bummed I can’t get codes any longer.

    • Betty Bridges

      What happens if you bought codes from Groupon?

    • Mamacourtney18

      I am not recieving any codes back from my text. What am I doing wrong?

    • Anonymous

      So sad they changed it. I only have one of those pay-as-you-go phones for emergencies and I can’t text. My phone has to be topped up every 3 months at $20 a pop. Too much money for a regular cellphone, hence the reason I coupon.  As for the Library comment below, unfortunately my local library doesn’t have an extensive selection of movies, though, I wish it did. They have a few documentaries, some how-to videos, and a handful of little kid movies. Haven’t been doing this long, but really enjoyed getting a free movie night with my teen boys. As they get older, 15 years old now, not as many cool things to hang-out and do with Mom.  Oh well, just have to pay a $1 now and not do it quite as often. Free was nice while it lasted, I can’t complain.    

      • guest

        I agree. I have the same plan, but can text, just not much.
        There is a way to text from a computer — there are directions under google searches. I haven’t tried it yet.

    • Terrybenzing

      may result in data charges on your phone bill anybody experience this yet free may not be free ?

    • Karen

      Miss getting free codes online.   Have already been charged by my cell phone provider for previous codes I sent to “others”.  Won’t repeat that experience!  :(

    • Sitaifun

      The pinger service sounds great, but unfortunately it does not work with just a 5-digit destination number.  It says “Hmm, the number you’ve dialed is not a 10 digit US telephone number. Try again?”
      I have not found a way to send and receive text messages from the computer when sending to a 5-digit destination.  Not sure why that appears to be rocket science!

      • Sitaifun

        I just confirmed from pinger’s support page that sending to a short code is not supported:
