Deal Details

Currently there are several Fandango deals that can be taken advantage of. I've listed all of them to help you take advantage of the best possible deals. The list is in no special order.

Notes:
(5) $20% off $25 in Fandango Bucks (4 times per month) - Yes you can use it on the B1G1 Visa Signature deal! Read below
https://www.fandango.com/visasignature

(6) Buy 1 ticket get 1 free - Visa Signature - (Fridays only and once per 5 weeks or use a virtual cc)
https://www.fandango.com/visasignature

(10) Waive your Fandango Fee's for AMC Theaters
Use an AMC Stubs card to waive your Fandango Fee's.

(11) Combine Fandango Codes, Bucks & Visa Signature B1G1
Go through your order and once prompted for payment visit the below URL and enter your fandango bucks. This allows you to enter fandango bucks or promotional codes when fandango otherwise doesn't display the box.
https://www.fandango.com/transact...lling.aspx

If that doesn't work... You can do it manually. This manual way can also be helpful with other code related Fandango deals.

Here's a sweet trick to use your fandango bucks with the B1G1 Visa Signature deal You may be able to use your amazon local deal but I can only confirm fandango bucks. The "KFC" promo code for 3D/IMAX movies to save $10 won't combine though with the B1G1 deal. The trick is simple... You re-add the checkbox manually to the page. This may be a little tricky for some to understand but it's actually very simple. Fandango's platform is built to only add 1 promotional box. It's very easy for them to add another but they're probably not willing to pay developers to do so. Fandango has an obligation to let you pay with your gift card in any circumstance that you can pay with a credit card. Gift cards are as good as cash in the US. Below we do the work for them.

You need Google Chrome with the "Web Developer" addon.

(1) Copy the text in the quote below.
(2) Visit fandango and select your movie show time.
(3) On the page where you see the text "Visa Signature Promotion: Your discount will be automatically applied to your order on the review page."... Highlight this text, right click, and click inspect element.
(4) Half of Google Chrome will now display the client side code for the current page with some text highlighted. <div class="promo text">" etc...
(5) Two lines up right click <ol> and click edit as html.
(6) On the line below <ol> paste what you copied below.
(6) Close the web developer addon and check the fandango box that says you have a promotional code.

That's it...!

Code:
<li>
<input id="PaymentInstrumentCheckBox" type="checkbox" name="PaymentInstrumentCheckBox" tabindex="7" />
<label for="PaymentInstrumentCheckBox">
Check here to apply <strong>Fandango Bucks</strong>, a 
<span style="font-weight: bold; color: black;">gift card</span>, or a <strong>promotional code</strong> to this order.
</label>
</li>

I had problems with pasting the code from the wiki into the browser, so I gave up and checked out with visa signature B1G1 free deal without using my fandango bucks. (I purchased the $25 for $20 fandango bucks prematurely) so I'm going to need some help Embarrassment walking me through how to get this trick to work so I can use up the bucks in a smart way.
I might PM you on another Friday for help when I try using this trick again.Wink

I did the same thing (spent a total of 28.50) to go see Prometheous on friday. I was in a hurry so just went with the BOGO Visa deal.

Any screenshots to help with the walkthrough would be appreciated. I kind of hate Google Chrome at this point. Hopefully this "deal" can sway me.

Just to let you know, AMC turns off accounts that are used excessively. That has happened to me about 5 times already, lost a lot of rewards, over $300-400 worth of it from those 5 cards. I dont do it anymore because of it.

I was able to get to the Fandango code entering stage without editing HTML. Once I clicked Continue Checkout and was prompted to enter my VISA info, I pasted this URL into Chrome's address bar and it brought me to the Fandango code entering page while also showing the Visa promo discount.

Code:

I haven't completed my purchase yet since I don't know what movie time I want yet. I don't know if it'll complete or not but maybe someone else can test?
I tried that last friday but couldn't get it to work using my fandango bucks code. Do I have to do anything special like browse in incognito mode?Confused I may try again this friday so I want to be prepared by gaining more understanding on how to execute this trick.
Quote from RandallMarshall View Post :
You can pay $20 and get $25 in Fandango bucks. (Or pay $15 if you try the other deal) Then you can take the $25 in Fandango bucks and use that with the B1G1 deal. So you'll pay roughly what 10 Fandango bucks depending on where you live for two tickets and still have another 15 left over for the next time.
Quote from binxer View Post :
I found that when I got to the page where you order tickets, it didn't have the line about Visa signature promotion, only about checking a box if I wanted to enter a Regal card number. I just did the same thing there (right click inspect element and paste code) and it worked for me.

3D prometheus movie x 2 for $3.50 combined with free $10 from preordering prometheus from amazon
Finding precisely where to edit the HTML code was very confusing. Also I tried copying the code but couldn't paste anywhere in the edit HTML code; it couldn't figure out "how to paste" in the code. So any walk thru guides or pictures to precisely do the trick would be greatly helpful. I added Web Developer for google chrome and followed the instuctions , but I didn't try incognito mode. So I hope to get anyone's help (eg. binxer,RandallMarshall, Timbert) who successfully did this trick to guide me with this on future Fridays this summerCoolworshipWink I'm just glad it was possible to do this trick, so I may PM any of you when I'm ready to try this again!woot

If I never get the fandango codes to work with "B1G1 free" this summer, then I'll probably use it on 1 or 2 of the later movies below if there is no B1G1 free deal.
SEPT 21 Dredd (based on Judge Dredd) [yahoo.com] ; Hotel Transylvania 3D (Sony CG anim) [yahoo.com]
OCT 5 Frankenweenie (Disney CG anim) [yahoo.com] ; Taken 2 [movienewz.com]
Nov 9 Skyfall (007 Film) [yahoo.com] , Nov 16 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part Two) [yahoo.com] , DEC 14 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey [yahoo.com]

Good to know, better transfer any rewards I have to a AMC Gift Card.

Are people making multiple Twitter accounts to get multiple $3 codes, then stacking those on single orders?

You have to right click a line and press "Edit as HTML" to be able to paste the code in. Try the other method I mentioned in the first post now. I haven't confirmed it but someone mentioned it and I'm pretty sure it'll work the same.
