One thing my family loves to do is go to the movies. Taking eight people to the movies is not a frugal outing, so we probably only see one movie a year (matinee) and watch the rest on Netflix or hit the free summer movies down the street.
I recently signed up for a program called Weekly Cinema. When you sign up you get a free movie ticket, and then you get four (I think, it might be three I am trying to figure it out) tickets a month for $15.99. That means you are paying $4 or $5 for a movie ticket. Around here prices for a matinee are $7 or $8 and catching a movie after 7pm costs $11!
My children are getting to the age where all their friends go to the movies on the weekends so this is a great way for them to go to the movies with their friends and not spend all their (or my) hard earned money. At $5 a ticket you can have a date night for ten bucks!
When you sign up you have to give your name, address, email, and credit/debit card info and you are charged $0.15. You will immediately receive a code for your free ticket in your email. You redeem this code at Fandango and it is good for tickets up to $14. Every month (after the free trial) you are billed $15.99 and you receive your ticket codes on the first of the month. There is no contract and you can cancel at any time.
I would love to hear from anyone who has participated in the program. So far so good, but I always like to try things out before I recommend them to my readers/ friends.
