Sprint is offering its customers a free movie rental under its Sprint Rewards program. The service has been criticized for what some subscribers feel is a distinct lack of actual rewards, making the new free movie rental a positive change from the discounts and other promotions. The rental is offered through FandangoNOW, but customers need to act quickly to claim their code before it’s gone.
FandangoNOW is a movie and TV digital purchasing and rental platform offered by ticketing company Fandango. Sprint is offering its free movie rentals through this platform, doing so in the form of a promotional code applied to the user’s account. The code is only available through the Sprint Rewards app, which requires users to verify their Sprint number.
Assuming you’re a Spring wireless customer, you can claim your free movie rental by downloading the Sprint Rewards app (Android | iOS), then entering your phone number and confirming the account with a PIN. You’ll need to provide basic information — name, zip code, etc. — after which point you’ll have access to the Sprint Rewards content.
Users are currently being shown a new FandangoNOW deal that, when tapped, offers Sprint customers a single movie rental through the service. To claim the reward, tap the ‘Copy’ button to copy the promotional code to the device’s clipboard, then tap the next button to open FandangoNOW. You’ll need to create a FandangoNOW account if you don’t already have one.
Once signed into FandangoNOW, you can enter your promotional code by tapping ‘Redeem Now’ and pasting the promotional code. Customers can browse the service’s available movie rentals, select a movie they’re interested in, then tap the rental option they want (HD, 4K, etc). The promotional code discount will automatically be applied at checkout, resulting in a cost of $0.
