The summer season film season could be a whole lot more cost-effective for film enthusiasts this yr as ticketing service Fandango and a new, studio-backed competitor are aggressively wooing audiences with free ticket offers.
Atom Tickets and Fandango have both rolled out client loyalty classes that purpose to get extra individuals in the seats. Atom's simply introduced software will supply participants a free ticket to a typical-structure movie with every four they buy. moreover, clients can refer a film to pals. as soon as three pals purchase tickets for that recommendation, they'll get an additional free ticket. (Canadian users will get a free popcorn.)
Fandango, which is owned by NBCUniversal, recently launched its own application, providing a $6 credit, which may also be used for tickets, digital leases, or different purchases, for each 4 tickets bought.
each courses, for now, are restrained. Fandango's is decided to run via Aug. 31, whereas Atom's can shut down after Nov. 30. however both can be extended, depending on the competitive circumstances q4.
in case you sign up for either loyalty program, although, don't stockpile these free tickets. In Atom's case, at least, they should be used within 30 days. (On the upside, you'll have a lot of videos to choose from this yr, including Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Mission: not possible-Fallout, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.)
