Update: Get a refund on your movie tickets December 27, 2010

If you purchased the deal I posted on 9/28 (4 movie tickets for $20) and haven’t redeemed them yet, I have an important update for you! You can get a refund (and/or credit) on those tickets — BUT YOU NEED TO HURRY! Since they had an expiration date of 1/5/2011, I *think* you need to act on this refund/credit opportunity BY JANUARY 5th in order to get your money back.

Here’s the scoop:

“If any of your subscribers have tickets leftover from the Mamapedia $20 for 4 Movie Tickets deal they are no longer valid. I tried redeeming my last two tickets and was told they were expired (they don’t expire until Jan 5). When I went back through my emails and went to the Weekly Cinema website I received this message:

We regret to inform you that the Weekly Cinema program is being discontinued and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Mamapedia has informed us that they are processing credits or refunds for un-redeemed tickets related to coupons purchased from them and you should be hearing from Mamapedia shortly. Please check your Mamapedia account or contact their customer support at deals@mamapedia.com

Many thanks to Being Resourceful reader Torie for this update!

 

$8 OFF Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray combo – on sale today! November 2, 2010

My nearly-5-year-old and I listened to an interview with one of the writers of Toy Story 3 on NPR. I enjoyed hearing the way in which they came up with the story line, how they developed the characters, etc. What was my son’s response? “MOM! Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD on November 2nd! MOM! We HAVE to get that! Can we? Can we? Pleeeeeeease?”

Well, TODAY is THE day… THE day that Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD & Blu-Ray in the stores! Click here to head over to Disney Movie Rewards for a printable coupon for $8 OFF the Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray Combo!

If you’re not already a member, you’ll need to sign up (free and quick). (If you took advantage of the deal I posted last spring that got you free tickets to see Toy Story 3 in the theater, you’re already a member!)

Don’t have a Blu-Ray player? We don’t either. However, I’m buying the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack because, chances are, we’ll get a Blu-Ray player in the future… AND with this $8 OFF coupon, the combo costs just $1 more than the DVD alone! (Target has the combo pack on sale right now for $24.99 and the DVD for $15.99… Making the combo pack just $16.99 + tax after the couponFind a Target near you.)

$4 Movie Tickets Nationwide! August 27, 2010

moviesLast week I took my kids to the movies on a weekday morning and it cost $5 per person — $5 for a 10:30am movie! I couldn’t believe it. I realize I’m no longer a spring chicken, and I don’t get to the movies often these days, and inflation, inflation, blah, blah, blah… BUT here’s a deal to solve that problem!

Groupon — you know, one of the major sites that offers steep discounts to large quantities of shoppers — is offering movie tickets for just $4 a piece! You’ll be able to redeem your ticket through Fandango.com for theaters nationwide. (Just go to Fandango.com to find the theaters near you that use that site.)

Moms! Dads! Relatives & friends of college kids! This is a GREAT gift to send to those college students! Below the blue “Buy!” button, there’s a picture of a present with the link “Buy it for a friend!” You can purchase movie tickets at this great discount and the gift recipient can redeem them at his/her leisure!

Note: Limit one ticket per person.

Expires: Make your purchase by Mon. Aug. 30, 2010. Movie tickets are good through Feb. 28, 2011.

PLEASE NOTE: I have no affiliation with Studio Movie Grill and no matter how nicely you ask me, I can’t get you any free tickets. That’s something you have to do on your own. 🙂

To get your 2 FREE TICKETS, just fill out this form and they’ll email you a verification link. Click that link and you’ll go straight to a site that has your PRINTABLE VOUCHER for your 2 FREE TICKETS.

Hmm… I see a FREE date night in my future! (Except for the cost of the babysitter, of course.)
