Getting Money Off At The Cinema

Cinema tickets are continually rising in costliness, and can even fetch up to £20 for some of the bigger summer blockbusters in 3D. For the smart consumer, there’s plenty of deals and ways to get that figure down however – here’s a few of the most common deals going at the moment to get you started.

Meerkat Movies is a price comparison website for just about everything, from insurance to credit cards and other competitive products and consumer services. Using their Meerkat movies program can net you a discount at the cinema –  with a 2 for 1 movie voucher available every week.

There’s a catch though – the offer only works for 12 months after using CompareTheMarket to get a credit card, loan or insurance, or switch energy, broadband, TV or phone provider. So basically, if you want to take advantage of this deal, you have to use the service and potentially change a service provider. The least stressful way to do this is with broadband TV or phone providers.

Vue Super Mondays

Cinema chain Vue has a deal that might also seem attractive – Cinema tickets for 4 or 5 pounds every monday if you’ve registered online with the Super Mondays program and received a code via e-mail. This code then can be used to book tickets online at Vue’s website for the discount.

Odeon Limitless/Cineworld Unlimited

The Odeon cinema chain offers an ‘Unlimited’ subscription service which lets you pay under £20 a month to see a broad selection of movies at your fancy. This is similar to a deal at Cineworld cinemas as well – with both offering 10% off drinks and snacks to boot. Find out more about these offers below.


Kids Weekend and School Holiday Deals

Across all three of the main cinema chains there’s usually a scheme to let kids watch movies for under £3 each on weekends and school holidays. Specific terms and conditions apply, but Odeon, Cineworld and Vue offer this deal.
