Your Visa Signature is worth a free movie ticket today! Through August 21, 2015, each Friday you can get a free Friday movie ticket when you buy 1 at Fandango.
The maximum value of the 2nd ticket is $19.50. Not sure if you have a Visa Signature card? Just check below the Visa logo for the word “Signature”!
I’ll explain which theaters are eligible. And I’ll show you more ways to save money at the movies!
How to Get a Free Movie Ticket at Fandango
Here’s a list of the Fandango movie theaters in the US. These include many AMC and Regal theaters.
To get the complimentary ticket, add 2 movie tickets to your cart. When you check-out on a Friday with your Visa Signature card, the lowest-priced ticket (up to $19.50) won’t be charged.
This deal is valid for any Friday showing.
The free tickets are 1st-come, 1st-served. So you may consider using a Chase Visa Signature card (such as the British Airways card). That’s because with a Chase Visa Signature card, you can purchase as early as Wednesday for Friday showings.
- Offer only good while supplies last
- Maximum value of free ticket is $19.50
- Limit of 1 free ticket per card, every 30 days
- Limit of 1 registration per email address (regardless of card number) per 7 day period
- Can NOT be combined with other coupons or discounts
You could get this deal multiple times if you have more than 1 Visa Signature card and email address.
What’s a Visa Signature Card?
Visa Signature cards have “Signature” under the VISA emblem. Examples:
- Chase Sapphire Preferred
- Chase Ink Cash
- Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card
- Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card
Here’s a list of Visa Signature cards.
Or enter your Visa credit card number into the Fandango site to see if it’s eligible.
Other Discounts at the Movies
You can save money at movie theaters any day of the week buying gift cards at office supply stores with a credit card that earn bonus points. For example, Staples sells gift cards to AMC Theaters, Fandango, and Regal Cinemas.
You can use your Chase Ink Plus, Ink Bold (no longer available), or Ink Cash card to earn 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (or 5% cash back). And AMEX SimplyCash earns 5% back at US office supply stores.
You can also purchase movie theater gift cards in a supermarket with a card that earns bonus points. For instance, the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card and Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express earn extra points at the supermarket.
Look through your cards to see if you have a Visa Signature card. (It will say “Signature” below the Visa logo.) Because each Friday through August 21, 2015, you’re eligible for a free movie ticket when you buy 1 from Fandango.
I love the extra savings I get with cards I already have!
