Redbox just f*cked me big time....

Recommended Posts

And that's what you get for not actually buying the best game of the generation!

...but yeah, that kind of sucks. Called them yet?

Oh man that sucks. Something similar happened to me with Burnout Paradise for PS3, where I got a blank CD-R instead of an actual game. Except I bought the game at Best Buy brand new (or so I thought, it was actually re-shrinkwrapped).

Its really important that you make sure to tell Redbox to track whoever previously rented it to find out their info via the credit card used to rent it before you.

Does redbox accept pre paid debit cards though? Seems like if they took all that effort they wouldn't have overlooked the whole red box having their info thing.

Yeah, debit cards work. Would this affect the possibility for Redbox to track him down or collect additional funds for the stolen game?

Fuuu that sucks. Such anticipation as you opened it too only to be met with that bullcrap. Public executions are the answer.

Now lets see if anyone trys it again :angry:

Doesn't seem as much like Redbox fucked you, but more like the previous customer fucked you.

Nah, I didn't mean debit cards, I meant those prepaid cards you can get at a store with $20 or whatever on them and then give them as gifts and what not. Also known as "porn site" cards.

You missed 2 important words PRE and PAID.

they can track it as long as you would believe 100% you can prove it was the last person that rented it. I think that would stand up as being logical, that the last person in line, decided to keep it. Sneaky fucks.

yeah, it's bull shit. I'd be going off. I miss places like Blockbuster where you can walk in and see the disc for yourself ya know? That's one major issue with Redbox. I heard it goes on with movies too. It's difficult to 100% blame the previous guy, but it's still the most logical, but can anyone for sure prove it? Probably not. Redbox probably just takes the hit when this happens and buys a new one I suppose.

Call them. They will give you three free rentals (one convers your current rental). I had this happen when I was trying to rent Halo; though I never used my free rentals in the time before they expired. Plus, you don't want to put it back, then have the next person call on you and have your card charged.

They don't support pre paid apparently. Did I miss ANYTHING and ELSE?

They do support prepaid Visa and Mastercards that are registered. So you could buy like a Visa Vanilla Card and use it with Redbox, but it has to be registered first. But even still, you can falsify information on those.

Serves you right for redboxing this game. You should honestly be ashamed of yourself.

if he'd liked it he might have bought it. Unfortunately the prick before him either liked it or broke it or sold it on e-bay.
