PSA: AMC Green and Red Tickets Replacing Gold and Silver Experiences

Hey there, searched and didn't see this posted.

Just a heads up on some changes going on at AMC theaters. Discovered it while searching for AMC movie vouchers from Costco, BJ's, and Sam's Club to no avail -- seems like the Gold and Silver experiences are all out of stock there.
Then I came across this informational reply from AMC on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/amctheat...7854692413

Red vouchers cannot be used in New York or California. Green vouchers can be redeemed in all 50 states and are slightly more expensive. Unfortunately, neither voucher can be used to see any Disney-distributed films, including:
  • Bridge of Spies
  • The Good Dinosaur
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  • The Finest Hours
  • Zootopia
  • The Jungle Book
  • Captain America: Civil War
  • Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass
  • Finding Dory

(full terms and conditions here [amctheatres.com])

It looks like Sam's Club is the only wholesale retailer currently stocking the new Red and Green vouchers online (though Costco is mentioned in the Facebook comment): http://www.samsclub.com/sams/ev-a...983298.ip?
Unfortunately, they are physical tickets that have to be mailed, not e-tickets.

WorkingAdvantage [workingadvantage.com] has Green tickets (not Red) available, both to mail and to print at home, but you need a login.

$16.98 for 2 Red ($8.49 each)
$18.98 for 2 Green ($9.49 each)
Tickets still subject to surcharges for IMAX, 3D, etc. Like the previous Gold/Silver, these only cover the base ticket price (usually still a good savings, unless it's a matinee!).

Previous Gold experience tickets could be had for around $8.50 and worked in every state and for any movie. This to be a step down, especially with the new Disney stipulation, but at least they're not gone completely.

Thanks for the info, we couldn't buy tickets at Costco and wondered why.

The tickets are overpriced now - and the restrictions stink Smilie

These are a big step down for I read the long restrictions and looks like these are like the old silver passes which did not include the first 10 days of release. I went to AMC today and a lot of movies showed no Red or Green passes.

Yes it clearly states that any and all Disney movies are not eligible for the green or red tickets.

Yup I don't know why AMC had to buckle though since Century theaters still accept and sell their gold passes with no such restrictions.

In hindsight, I should've stocked up on Gold passes when I could.

Greens are near useless when you can't even use them towards films with Dolby audio; forget about all the films that won't allow passes. That, Real3D, and IMAX all incur at least $7 on top of the cost. Still, you would still need to add at least $4 to Gold ones for the same, although Gold ones could be used towards anything without restriction (even if you had to put money to it).
