I have no idea what this is saving from walking up to the ticket counter and buying 4 tickets. Could you give more detail? I may jump in.

1. It enables you to buy your tickets ahead of time, that way you don't run the risk of arriving at the theater only to find out that the movie that you were planning to attend is sold out, and

2. If you have a Visa Signature card you can buy $25 worth of Fandango movie tickets for only $20 [fandango.com], so if you use that in conjunction with this fee-free promo you could actually save 20% from the price you would pay at the ticket counter.

Yeah, I tried it once, and then realized that by jumping though all the hoops, I managed to save almost a dollar off of three tickets after the service charge. I can save 10-15 minutes by just walking up and buying a ticket at the counter. Then again, my local movie theater is practically never sold out. In fact, I hate going to a full theater, so I'd be unlikely to even want to go to a show where I had to vie for tickets to get in. Yes, I'm old. Now get off my lawn.

Helps you to avoid the show selling out if you don't plan on showing up an hour early (to more popular shows / theaters).

$25 worth of Fandango movie tickets for 20 bucks isn't a good deal.

We've had Fandango tickets (up to $12) on sale at Groupon for $4 each.
Even last night their was a Fandango ticket to Rio 3D up to $17.50 that cost only $3.
Gilt City had a deal for $4 and you received 2 tickets up to $28.

The good thing about Fandango is theaters aren't strict on enforcing you to see any particular movie. So even if you're required to schedule a movie through a promo you can change the selection right at the counter with no problems. I've done this numerous times and had zero issues.

I am never afraid of a show selling out but I am afraid of dealing with the clerks who sell tickets. I live in the city and AMC has a line that can be up to thirty minutes to get through. The people who sell tickets are ill informed and inept and the people who are buying them are self-absorbed and moronic (how many times have I sat there while some idiot asks what each film is about while the lines gets longer). I buy 80% of my tickets at Fandango for these reasons. If you live in a more rural area, you might not understand why people wouldn't just buy them in the theater, but trust me, it's worth a dollar or two (and I'm super cheap) to not have to deal with the hassle of dealing with cashiers, lines and your fellow movie goers.

Sorry OP, full price is not a good price.
"Convenience" fees greatly anger me.

I figured it out finally, you can combine this promo with fandango bucks. Dont use the hp link, log in and select apply codes, use the code hpfeefree and you can combine with fandango bucks.

The past 6 movies I've taken my wife to, I haven't paid NEAR full price for. Whether it be Gilt City, Groupon, or random Fandango codes I get through odd promotions, I'm always paying next to nothing just because I'm using Fandango, rather than going up to the ticket counter.

So if you're not going to be using any special codes or getting it any cheaper, then the only benefit you're getting is not having to talk to the ticket counter person or wait in line to get your tickets. Also, not waiting in line adds to the special factor when taking someone on a date.Wink
