Ways to save
1. If you can, go to the matinee show
2. You can buy discount movie tickets from Costco, Sam’s Club, Credit Unions, and through employee discounts
3. Sign up for the movie theaters’ rewards programs. I have a rewards card with Regal Theaters and if I get so many points, then I can get discounts at the food stand, and also a free ticket every now and then. I swipe the card when I buy movie tickets and when I get items at the food stand which helps me earn points faster.
Discounts in Practice
The last movie that we saw was Argo, and I had one free ticket from earning rewards points through the Regal Rewards program. The following table shows how much I was able to save.
|Cost without discount||Cost with discount|
|2 tickets @ $11.00 each2 pretzels @$5.00 each
Total Cost = $32.00
|1 tickets @ $11.001 free ticket @ $0.00
2 pretzels @$5.00 each
Total Cost = $21.00
Savings (($32-$21)/$32)x100 = 34%
Every penny counts, and even though I did not get a discount for the pretzels, I still saved 34% of what I would have paid had I not used any discounts.
