Saving money at the box office can be as tricky as a suspense thriller…or full of laughs like a comedy. However, here are 9 superstar ways to save at Regal Cinemas box office.
Even those who must see a film on opening weekend can still save a few bucks. The key is to plan ahead and be flexible. Never pay full-price at the box office or concession stand.
Save Big at Regal Cinemas
Two tickets, please. Tuesday is the day to go to the movies for frugal film fanatics at Regal Cinemas.
Every Tuesday, Regal Crown Club members can enjoy Value Days with discounted tickets. Pricing in Vegas and Henderson ranges from $5- $6.50, so check your local area to confirm the price.
The deal is a definite blockbuster because it includes new releases — a rarity in movie discounts. (Special screenings excluded.) However, there is an upcharge for premium formats, including 3-D, 4-D, IMAX and RPX.
Even better, Regal Crown Club members get 50% off any size popcorn every Tuesday, too — just swipe or scan your loyalty card at the concessions stand. The buttery offer is only valid with paid admission.
Combine the two deals for a truly “cheap date night” with friends or family.
Remember, both deals are only available to Regal Crown Club members. Sign up online or at the box office at no cost.
Here’s the fine print: “Price plus tax at applicable locations. Additional 3D, RPX or IMAX up-charges may apply. Holidays, special events and opening days of new movies may be excluded. Prices, discounts, days and times may vary.
Regal Value Day tickets are only valid on the specified day and cannot be exchanged for tickets on another day. Must be a Regal Crown Club member to receive Value Day pricing.”
Plus, here are a more few tips for blockbuster savings at Regal Cinemas:
Regal Crown Club – Members earn points toward FREE tickets, popcorn and soda, as well as movie merchandise. Plus, members get 25% off candy every Monday and 50% off popcorn every Tuesday. Membership is FREE. Members also get access to exclusive sneak previews and lots of opportunities to earn bonus points.
Regal Unlimited – Join the chain’s movie subscription pass, Regal Unlimited, for blockbuster savings. With membership as low as $18 per month, you can see as many movies as you want, whenever you want. There are restrictions and rules, so review the program carefully before you join, so as to be sure you will benefit.
Monthly Mobile Coupon – Download the Regal Cinemas app for amonthly mobile coupon delivered right to your smart phone on the first day of the month. The discounts are typically for a monthly combo special (usually 15% off) — just show the digital coupon for the discount. The coupon can be found under the “Specials” tab and, then, under “Promotions.”
Free Large Refills – Regal Cinemas offers a FREE refill (during the same visit) on a large popcorn. It’s a smart move for budget-conscious families or friends. Why pay for two or three small popcorns, when you can share one for less money? (If you can only chomp on one bucket of popcorn, still get your FREE refill after the movie and take it home for a midnight snack.)
The complimentary refill also applies to a large soft drink. However, sharing can be a bit tricky, unless you don’t mind sipping from the same cup.
AARP Special – AARP members can save $3 on a small drink and small popcorn combo — around 25% off. Just flash your AARP membership card at the concession stand.
Matinee Discounts. If you already didn’t know, matinee showtimes (usually before 6 p.m.) are always cheaper than evening shows — usually by $2 or $3. Plus, as an added bonus, there are fewer patrons, so it can be a much more quiet, relaxing experience.
Senior/Military Discounts. These are not the best discounts, but, if there aren’t better savings available, you can always rely on these good ol’ stand-bys. The discounted tickets are usually just a buck or two off of regular prices. (Restrictions may apply.) Of course, a proper ID is required for any of the discounts.
Now, you’re ready to write the script on how to save money at the movies — just remember to combine deals for superstar savings. For example, check out a flick on a Tuesday afternoon for matinee pricing. Swipe your Regal Crown Club at the box office and also get 50% off any popcorn. It’s even better because both transactions will earn points toward freebies. Find your nearest Las Vegas Regal theater here.
