Any ideas if you could use this Fandango code with the BOGO Visa Signature deal?

You aren't getting cashback if it's through groupon mobile.

Target must be hurting if they need a groupon promotion

hooha23 06-26-2013 08:06 PM

funfact/disclaimer: unlike many other daily-deal sites, Groupon can and does permanently ban multiple purchasers, at least if done to the extreme. They actually have a special team dedicated to continuing to crack down on this activity and that continues to ban accounts that such users create, even year(s) later. If you plan to buy more than one on more than one on more than one account, exercise caution.

source: eBay GC deal from ages ago.

that app limitation is going to make it very difficult to abuse. touch.groupon.com, etc. won't work.

dead. was only able to get one fandango.

just123me 06-26-2013 08:17 PM

I've got a 10.00 credit. Could I buy 2 target deals?

Once I put the Groupon app on my phone, how do I find the Target offer without a link? Just do a search I guess...

Plentiful this year! Target has been teasing with the Clearance game this year, for household items like hand soap, ziplock bags, trash bags, etc.

They started out the clearance with a lousy, laughable 5-10% (off the ridiculously jack-upped MRSP), then slowly climbed up to 30% (which is still HIGHER the weekly sale price).

Then Target cleared the item outta its database (when you scan the price at a price checker or a cashier at the cash register checks out the item, the system won't know the price of this item). They make you think you're getting a good clearance price!


NOT!

you answered your own question :confused:
"visa signature deal" means you need to use "visa signature" to get the "deal"
so basically no you can't

Well I meant more like is this a coupon code or is it like cash? If it's like cash I could see it working even with the BOGO deal on Fridays.

Well the Visa Signature Friday deal only requires you to have a Visa Signature card. You are not actually required to pay for the ticket with it. So this deal is potentially stackable. For example, you can pay for the ticket with Fandango bucks (gift card) and still get the other ticket free as long as you put in a Visa Signature card number.

As to whether this Fandango deal is stackable, no one can be sure. It most likely will not be. From my experience, the ticket / 2 tickets ($12 / $24) Fandango promo codes do not stack with the Visa Signature promotion. This deal is not for Fandango bucks since it expires (check out the Groupon link in the OP). It is just a promotional code. It may be stackable... there were some stackable promo codes last year but this type never stacked in my experience so I wouldn't count on it.

MilesHunter 06-26-2013 08:26 PM

It will be a fandango gift card it is both coupon code and can be used like cash(not technically since it is online) but you know what i mean
anyways not sure what you actually mean by like cash can be used.
BOGO needs visa signature as payment to which no other coupon or method of payment can be applied

Where is the fine print that you are reading? Just want to confirm before I go to bed. I might wait up if I can get 2 but if I can only buy 1, I'm heading to bed. Thanks.

I can't even get the Target Groupon to show yet so just curious where you are reading fine print that we can only buy one Target deal

shadowplay0918 06-26-2013 09:10 PM

Thinking since Groupon is based here in Chicago its midnight central time...

sjmike 06-26-2013 09:11 PM

They usually allow you to buy 2 Fandango tickets. That's what they have done for previous deals.

Is this live or what? Is the target deal $5 for anything at Target?

Ditto. See my post just above your post.

I think we'll have to search for Target via our mobile Groupon app 12 central. If it doesn't show up then, then try 12 pacific time. So far it's not listed.

Eagles89 06-26-2013 09:36 PM

Fandango deal isn't that good. You are paying $6 + $1 commission. You might as well just go to Costco and buy the tickets there.

I have the app installed and I went to slickdeals on my phone and clicked the Target link and all it does is take me to where they ask for my number to send me a link to install the app. There isn't a link to the Target Groupon. They sure don't make it clear if that is the link.

you gotta download the app to get in on the target deal, unfortunately. hopefully the deal will pop up within the app soon, or im heading off to bed.

When I click that link on my phone, I get a Bad Request page on Groupon's domain. I've tried it in three different browsers and received the same issue.

I don't get how people are being able to buy these?

When I click the link for the fandango, all I see is "deal is not live yet"

I'm in California

With Costco's you still need to wait in line to redeem the certificate for a ticket. The $1 fee is well worth the convenience for me since I go to a very busy movie theater. If my movie starts at 7, I arrive at 7 and usually get in to the theater before the trailers start.

Thanks for the response; I've given you reputation points.

I've had the Groupon app installed for almost as long as I've had my smartphone, and I purchase items from Groupon using my phone regularly.

I'll just wait for the app to have a link to it. $5 for $10 is a good deal, but it isn't worth that much trouble, especially if I can't get multiples of it.

No convenience fee with AMC stubs program. I've basically gotten the subscription fee back based solely on the convenience fee savings (and the fact that I've never paid more than $6 for the stubs annual membership).

You've been shamed a few times for this dumb comment. I will add mine anyway. This doesn't mean they are hurting. It's just a marketing move to get people to come to the store and spend money. Most people will end up spending more than $10. It costs Target $7.50 for each Groupon sold. If people spend more than that in the store, Target wins.

Obviously it varies by location, and AMC is my preference having both in my area, but statistically what he said is 100% accurate since Regal has hundreds more theaters than AMC.

Yeah you probably have the default set in your browsers already to open the link in the browser.

When I click the link, it gives me the option of opening it in a browser or with the groupon app. Thats where you select the app and then you can see the deal.

I don't know what what you have but I'm using slickdeals app and when you click on groupon link it says this deal is only available on groupon app (download it now or I already have it right) you see that page? on the bottom there is a little icon in the slickdeals app you press it and it gives you option to open this page in a web browser not through slickdeals app, after you open the page in web browser click on I already have it and there will be an option to complete this action using group groupon app on your phone or internet. hope it helps. but it says target deal ended.

I think you only save a $1 every time you upgrade from a Medium Soda/Popcorn to a Large. So it depends how often you buy the overpriced concessions as well.

I've had AMC Stubs last year, ...we only went to the movies like 4-5 times so I decided it's not really worth it for us. And I think every year they reset the points you earned because when it was time to renew my reward balance went back to $0. :P

Regal's program is actually better. Every 2nd visit, you either get a free popcorn/drink/movie ticket. Plus the program is free. With AMC's program, you just get $10 in AMC credit, which might not even be enough to get you a movie ticket. The trick for Regal program is to make sure each person has their own rewards card, so EACH person gets a free drink/popcorn/ticket with the 2nd visit.

I'm in for 2 Fandango tickets, thanks op!

corollatercel 06-26-2013 10:30 PM

For the movie tickets. I normally go to my local AMC and pay 6.50 for the matinee showing of films on the weekends before 12 PM so when my wife and I go we pay just 13 bucks. Does that fandango "convenience fee" of 1.00 still get charged even when buying this deal?

If so then I wouldn't be saving money at all going to the cinema through fandango unless I wanted to go at another time. Thanks for the post OP. For folks who don't know they should check their local theaters and see if they have that matinee option. On premier weekends on films the matinee has seat availability that isn't shoulder to shoulder and you save about 30% on average by seeing the movie several hours earlier in the day so if you like movie food you can use the saved bucks to actually enjoy some popcorn or whatnot(I always sneak my food in. lol)

sweetMary 06-26-2013 10:32 PM

I am confused. The fandango on groupon says limit 1/person but it let me buy 2 tickets....does it mean you can only use one code per order? but can buy multiples? or is it a mistake they let me buy two in one transaction on groupon?

ob1pad01 06-26-2013 10:32 PM

Can't find Target deal. Probably a Groupon scam to get people to download their app.

According to Fandango, the convenience fee is included.

"This promotional code can be redeemed for up to 1 free ticket(s) of the highest price in the order including convenience charges for those tickets up to a maximum of $12.00."

sunwind45 06-26-2013 10:38 PM

I have been using the groupon mobile app since my first smartphone (tmobile wing :) !!!

I remember many times when at midnight, the deal would show up, but would say ended with 0 bought for a few minutes after midnight-->until a few minutes later when the deal would become buy-able.
I figure this is something of the sorts but extended, and maybe they're just fixing whatever is causing the holdup.

Does anyone else remember when u had to wait at midnight and then it would work after a few minutes???

Go back to the first post in the thread here and click on the link for target once you downloaded the mobile app. Bypass the "Do you have the app" and click that you already have it and it comes right up.

Why would it be worth more than the stated value? You can check the code here

if you read the last 3 pages of this thread you'll see that it hasn't started "yet".

i thought fandango tickets are 1 per customer.. why people buying more than one?

I already bought one. is there anyway that i can buy another one?

It seems to be, at least in California.

If you're from, say New York City, it would be under "Deals Mega Mix".

You can buy up to 2. Just buy another one, it will let you. For those of you who have not bought any yet, just set the quantity to 2 so you only have to place a single order. But you can always purchase the second one separately.
