Disney Movie Rewards

Currently, you can snag 50 FREE Disney Movie Rewards points! Just login or register here, then enter code D11M20R01NY! That’s it!

Here are a few other code that I found, so be sure to try these too!

"COOL" -50 points
"9EKSMN38SH" -50 points
"9FTMRYWEK" -50 points
"CHIHUAHUA" -25 points
"FPSNN83JX9" -25 points

If you haven’t joined Disney Movie Rewards yet, then I would highly suggest doing so now! This is a great rewards program… especially if you love Disney movies and memorabilia. Basically every time you purchase a Disney DVD or go see a Disney movie at the movie theater you earn points. Once you’ve earned enough points, you can then redeem them for a reward! They have lots of different rewards available from electronics to toys, DVDs and more!

You can also earn points from receiving the newsletter and there are free codes that come once in a while. So in reality you don't have to ever BUY Disney products to get points, but Disney items are the best way to get points quickly.
