National Rental Service Redbox Adds... Foursquare Support?

Redbox, the in-store movie and game rental kiosk, is adding foursquare support starting next week, the company tells Kotaku.

The addition of more than 27,800 redbox locations makes this one of the largest foursquare retail integrations in the location-based community service's history.

"With more than 27,800 locations nationwide, mobile allows redbox to hyper-localize our engagement efforts," said Amy Gibby, vice president of marketing, redbox. "Foursquare significantly expands our mobile touch points and unlocks new ways for consumers to engage with redbox at local kiosks."

To celebrate, redbox is hosting ten days of deals. Customers who check in at a redbox location from Aug. 15 through Aug. 24 will unlock unique daily discount codes ranging from $0.10 to $1.00. The discount codes can then be used during redbox kiosk transactions that day.
