FREE POPCORN: And, don't forget your free popcorn, if you go to a Regal theater.
Additional Fandango Deal: If you want multiple tickets that work for IMAX and 3D too, try this deal - works out to $4 per $14 Fandango code in the first month. Sign up for one month and cancel if you don't want more.
To be crystal clear, you are buying one $4 movie ticket on fandango...
so if a Friday night, first run movie ticket costs $10 + $1.25 conv. fee for a total of $11.25. You only pay $4 out of pocket.
Also, please note that myself included, a couple of users have reported that fandango tacks on another $1 for processing fee. If you did not, then the $1 is YMMV.
==Details from Groupon Q&A==
"Hey gang, Sean from Groupon. You can use this Groupon for new releases and it can be used anywhere across the US. But, you can only buy one – either for yourself or as a gift. Sorry!"
"This is John from Groupon. Fandango tickets can be used at 16,000 theaters nationwide. You can go to fandango.com and search theaters near you to see which ones participate.
Hi Shermila – The code you will get will cover $12 of cost on Fandango.com. It can cover taxes, convenience charges and if your tickets are cheaper where you live, it can be partially applied to a second ticket."
>>NOT TRUE - I tried to purchase two tickets for $6.50 each and the code will only cover one of the tickets. DEFINITELY NOT TRUE. Fandango will only take off 1 ticket + 1 processing fee.
3rd confirmation here that this is NOT TRUE...I bought 2 tickets for $7.25 each ($6.25 + $1 fee), and the coupon only took off $7.25.
==Terms & Conditions==
# Expires Feb 28, 2011
# Limit 1 per person. Must register Fandango account. Valid for 1 ticket worth up to $12. Not valid for IMAX or 3D movies. Not for resale. No cash back.
# Buyers must pay any balance due by credit or debit card if the ticket price (including online-convenience fee) exceeds the maximum $12 value.
# CAN NOT BE USED TODAY, 8/25/10. Starts tomorrow according to groupon confirmation
3D/IMAX Movie Update:
# I have successfully used a code on a 3D movie with absolutely ZERO hassle. The ticket was $11.00, Fandango added a $1.00 convenience charge, and the Fandango code purchased through this thread offset the cost by $12.00, making the ticket free. Thus, it appears this CAN be used on 3D movies (or at the very least, on 3D movies that total $12.00 or less).
# I used it for an 8/27 IMAX showing in Atlanta, GA [Regal Mall of GA], it took $14 off a $19.50 ticket and I paid the rest through Fandango. Confirmed to work in this case.
==Security Warning - Trivial==
Using Firefox ( this site is not properly Encrypted). it is missing identification material that is hinky for a truly legitimate site). Q #1: Can anyone address this & I don't mean with "i've used this site 10 x before..."
A #1: It most likely means the security certificate they were using has expired. It does not mean that the site is insecure, it means that they have not renewed the certificate with Verisign, or another issuing company (sort of like letting your car's registration expire. The car still works fine.) Q #2: so what doesn't mean it's secure today? is it showing proper locks using IE ?
A #2: They renewed the certificate with the issuing company - Equifax Secure Certificate Authority.

Reason: added security answers
How did you find this deal? Is it only available for Orange County? I signed in on Groupon and set it to my city and there was a different deal showing...
I had the same thought. But I just received an e-mail from Fandango directly about this promotion. I assumed OP received as well. I am at Chicagoland. So Fandango shouldn't send it to me if the deal is only good at Orange county. Below is the original html link. Thanks. OP.
