2. Buy Bulk movie tickets at Sam’s or Costco. The deals change but often you can purchase a two-pack of movie tickets at either warehouse store for a deeply discounted price.

3. And don’t forget that many theatres have loyalty programs.

Regal Crown Club: Earn 100 Crown Club points for every dollar you spend on tickets or at the concession stand. One of our favorite money saving bloggers, the Krazy Coupon Lady, says a free movie ticket takes 15,000 credits. That means you need to spend $150 before you can get a free ticket. So if you figure the average price for a trip to the movies for two people is about $40, it’s going to take almost 4 trips to the movies to earn a free ticket at Regal Cinemas.

AMC Stubs: If AMC is your choice of theatre, check out their two-tiered reward program.  The first tier is free, and you’ll get 20 points for every dollar spent. Second tier is $15 a year, and you’ll earn 100 reward points for every dollar you spend. AMC gives you a $5 reward for every 5000 points earned. Get discounted movie tickets on Tuesdays, free refills on popcorn and many other perks.
