No, it doesn't mean "earn or obtain."

It has several meanings, usually involving freeing or liberating someone or something, or exchanging one thing for another. For example, if you have pawned your watch, you can "redeem" it (get the watch back) by turning in the pawn ticket and paying the appropriate amount of money.

In this case, it probably means that if you have a coupon, or a credit on your account with the movie renting company, you can redeem it (trade it in) for a movie.
