This is a pretty terrific deal in my opinion, especially if you use your tickets wisely (you can read below if you’d like on how I make the most of mine). Right now Tippr, (a collective buying power site like Groupon) has a Weekly Cinema offer for 4 movie tickets for $20. Each ticket is valued up to $14, so this has up to a $56 value. If you are new to Tippr and sign up through my link HERE you will also get a $5 credit, which would make this deal $15! Just look under Honolulu to grab this deal. Not sure how long it will last, Groupon ran a similar deal and sold out pretty quick, so you may want to grab it fast.

The fine print for this offer…
Limit per person: 10 (+10 as a gift). Expires on December 26, 2010. Tickets may be split between 4 customers, and do not need to be used in the same visit. Tickets must be claimed at by 12/26/2010 and redeemed at Fandango and theaters within 90 days of being claimed. Customers are NOT required to sign up for any monthly subscription.

How I make the most of my Weekly Cinema Tickets…
This deal is nice, since it is subscription-free, and gives you a way to try out something without commitment. But I am actually a member of Weekly Cinema, and I make the most out of my tickets by saving them up for 3D movies. When you do this deal and redeem at Weekly Cinema, you will be given 4 movie codes that are to be redeemed at Each code has a $14 value at Fandango. So for me, since the codes have long expiration dates, I wait until there is a 3D movie I want to see. When I took Austin to see Toy Story 3D, what would have normally cost me $24 ($13.50 + $10.50 which is price in my area for 3D adult & child Tickets), only cost me $10 through my subscription! That’s a 60% savings for me and lets me take him to movies that I may not have splurged on otherwise. Of course it’s up to you how you use your tickets, but I feel like I am getting an even better deal by using them on special 3D movies like that which cost more.

-Thanks for the heads up on this deal to Heather at Frugal Reality!

These requirements will vary depending on the restaurant so be sure to pay attention to what they are. They are clearly described under the “add to cart” button in each offer. For example, the certificates do not usually apply to alcohol, take-out, or other specials at that restaurant such as happy hour. Additionally, there may be an expiration date and a minimum purchase requirement.  For example you may need to spend at least $35 to use that $25 certificate.  But it is still a huge savings on on dining!
