Nothing like a simple "pay it forward how-to" in order to brighten an otherwise gloomy day.

It's a pretty simple concept, actually. There are tons of free Redbox codes floating around the internet.

I got my free Redbox rental code by texting "MOVIE" to 727272. I got a message back with the code and I was on my way.

Right away you're saving a few bucks. Now this is how you can make someone's day.

After you're done watching the movie, and getting ready to return to the Redbox, grab that two dollars you saved with the free rental and put it inside the movie case.

In my case, I attached a sticky note that said "snacks on me - enjoy." and returned the flick.

You can do the same. Get your free rental, then pay it forward. It might make someone's weekend.

One more thing, if you're looking for the exact movie that I attached the " snacks" money to it's, Exodus: Gods and Kings.
