Yes, you read that right — $5 AMC movie tickets for all of October! Movie theaters have been struggling because of stiff competition from video-streaming services — like Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix — but AMC's latest deal is actually enough to entice us to head to the movies.
When it costs almost $50 to take a family-of-four to the movies (and that's before buying everyone snacks), it's hard to justify the expense. But $5 tickets and a $5 popcorn-and-drink deal, too? It's hard to say no. Seeing the latest movie on a 50-foot screen isn't something you can do at home.
So let's get into the nitty-gritty details. Every Tuesday (and only on Tuesdays), AMC is offering $5 movie tickets for all members of their rewards program, AMC Stubs. You can also get popcorn and a drink for $5, though they didn't specify what size. Sounds pretty sweet right?
Even when the month is over, you can still earn rewards through AMC Stubs. It's free to join, and all AMC Stubs members earn 20 points for every $1 they spend. When you reach 2,000 points ($100-worth of purchases), you'll earn a $5 reward. Members also get a free refill on their large popcorns.
But let's say you and your family are movie fanatics. In that case, if you pay $15 per year — which is roughly the price of one-and-a-half movie tickets — you can become an AMC Stubs Premier member. You'll save $5 on Tuesday tickets and earn 100 points for every $1 spent. Even better, you get a free size upgrade on your popcorn and fountain drink purchases.
So if you and your family are looking for something to do during the upcoming winter holidays, can we suggest a trip to the movies? As for the October-only $5-movie-ticket deal, we say treat yourself to a matinee after dropping off the kids at school. You deserve a break, too! And on that note, why not also help yourself to $1 margaritas at Applebee's throughout October?
