***Remember that I generally just price match at Walmart as much as I can rather than go to all the stores separately! I LOVE being able to do that. You can also pricematch at Target, but I find it easier to pricematch at Walmart.

Possible $0.10 movie tickets from Fandango

I heard that Fandango was going to be selling $0.10 movie tickets through the summer for their 10th anniversary, but was not sure how that would work. Well, Fandango posted the following on their Facebook wall today:

Our first 10 Cent Flash Ticket Giveaway was a wild ride! We call them "Flash Giveaways" because they can happen at any time -- so keep your eyes peeled for the next one and make sure to tell your friends. In the meantime, check our site for other Anniversary specials, including 10% off Fandango Bucks!

So, it looks like there will be flash sales that we will have to watch for and try to get in on while they last!

Thanks Mojo Savings.

WOW-10 movies for $5 at Cinemark!!

My mom told me about this yesterday, but I could not find the info online about it. So, thanks Who Said Nothing in Life is Free for posting about it with the link to the info!!

Cinemark theatres are having their Summer Movie Clubhouse once again this summer. That means if you buy your pass in advance, you can see 10 movies this summer for only $5!!! But, the $5 Series punch cards are limited and are now available only at the theatre box office while supplies last!! Admission with a series punch card is limited to one person per card per movie, and valid only at the theatre where purchased. SO, go get it right away at the theatre you want to go to!!

If you do not get a punch card, you can still see the movies for $1 each when you purchase tickets at the box office on the day of the show.

This is available in 33 states-but sadly not Nebraska! :(
