    how do you receive the tickets?

    •  

      I got mine via an attachment in an email from Hoyts.

      It's a shame they fixed the loophole of using credit to buy more tickets. 2 movie tickets, plus half of dinner for $12 was an excellent deal.

  •  

    this is old/dupe….??

    •  

      not sure? Has it ever really "ended"…good deal if you do buy deal from groupon!

      • +2 votes

        I bought one ticket first and used the Groupon credit to buy another. So it's two tickets for $12 which is still a good deal even if I don't use my Groupon credit.

        •  

          You find another loophole, nice!
          When did you receive your $12 credit in order to buy another ticket? as it take them a while to give you the credit on your account…

        •  

          it works because it is up to 2 tix per account. but if you already bought 2 tix, the loophole has been closed. sadly I already bought 2 tix

        •  

          The potential problem is that it takes days to more than a week to get the credit… you have to wait and may end up with just one ticket.. (not a big deal I guess!)

        •  

          It takes 3 business days….read terms n conditions if not then u call them n presto….not weeks, there are way to many Argo ozbar gainers who go nuts when they can't get something ..

        •  

          it took more than a week last time I bought..some did try to complain..I did not bother and just wait…

  •  

    how long does it take to receive hoyts voucher ?

    •  

      I found about 3-5 days for me to receive mine.

      •  

        Thanks. .ah I was planning for a movie tomorrow :) now have to wait :p

      •  

        Yes…probably longer due to long weekend.

      •  

        Yeah I read in one of the previous deals the tickets are only sent out Thursday. Now it says within 7 days.

    •  

      Takes up to 7 days I think but got mine in 3

  •  

    Got 2 thanks.

    12 days now still waiting.

    •  

      Same, I have sent Groupon an email to hurry them up

      •  

        i even called them twice to speed it up and they've told me to wait another 7 days :(

  •  

    I ended up spending $24 and got 4 tickets through two lots of purchases and still have $24 Groupon credit! :)

    •  

      How did you get the second 2 tickets?
      What redeem code did you use from the $12 voucher.
      I tried all:
      Voucher Code, Security Code and REF#, it said that's invalid.

    Great, this isn't a dupe, this is a new lot of tickets. Was able to buy more tickets even though I bought them from the previous two deals.

    •  

      Wouldn't let me

    "Sorry, you cannot buy this deal. Have a look at some other deals here"

    why? I thought you can pay money and get 2 tickets again!

  •  

    Are these considered as free tickets on hoyts? I tend to watch movies a week after release and while still under NFT conditions.

    •  

      I dont even know what hoyts consider as a free ticket. I was able to use all sort of ticket vouchers ranging from Cokereward voucher, hoyts voucher bought from ebay, even free ticket i got from signing up for a reward card at hoyts when the condition state NFT.

    •  

      read the t&c of your ticket. if it doesn't say that you "can't use for movies with NFT sign" that it is good for any movies (some upgrade fees may apply though for 3D)

    •  

      I've used Groupon vouchers today for Amazing Spider-Man 2, NFT movie, paid $3 more for Xtreme Screen.

      •  

        Good movie?

      •  

        I watched it yesterday in Chatswood and they charged me $6 extra for extreme screen.

    •  

      I may or may not work for Hoyts (cough), the only vouchers that classify as "free tickets" (those that can't be used for NFT movies) are things like magazine/newspaper/cereal box vouchers, I don't think I have ever seen a hot cash like ticket not be redeemable for NFT movies. When I say hot cash, ones that are similar to the ones that you purchase at a hoyts location, at a news agency, get free from your energy provider yada yada yada.

      But as Brongz said, it will state on the terms and conditions of the ticket whether it can be used for NFT listed movies. Various vouchers cannot be used on Saturday nights after 5pm as well, please look for this before you get all the way to the box office and have to be turned down :(

    I am a fan of these deals but a gripe of mine is that the ticket also incurs an upgrade fee for Xtreme Screen and incurs a booking fee. At my cinema this turned out slightly more expensive than the $10 Telstra deal which incurs neither of these. Of course you get the Groupon credit also!

  •  

    Ok, if this is a new offer, why isn't groupon allowing me to use my $24 groupon credits? It says I have maxed the purchase already? Isn't this a new deal and old one has expired?

    Edit, the link provided, after going into the page, it shows over 1000o+ purchases, so this is the same
    Deal that I posted last time, it is not a new deal, that's the only reason why purchases are rejected.

  •  

    Are there any good-valued deals with Groupon at the moment? The credit expires in less than a month which means there's little time to use it.

  •  

    For the $12 credit, do I need to use it all in one transaction? Or can I use say $7, then the rest $5 can use later? (before 18 May).

    •  

      You can use as little at a time as you want, don't have to use it all in one go.

  •  

    MAKE SURE YOU TICK THE 'USE CREDIT' BOX, when paying, as there is no confirmation page later on. If you miss ticking it and select buy, you will have purchased the stuff with your credit card they have on file. I learnt the hard way. Spent 20 minutes trying to spend the credit, most of the stuff looks like crap. Ended up buying the HDMI cables, like I really need 4 of them…

    Not expired - just used my previous $12 credit to buy another $12 credit.

  •  

    I bought 2x vouchers, tried to purchase other things but there is no 'Use Credit' box shown at checkout.
    Anyone have idea?

  •  

    In addition, how to claim the movie tickets?
    Are those the printout in 'My Groupons'?

  •  

    I haven't got the movie ticket, it's it normal?

    •  

      I'm still waiting for mine after 3 weeks. No joke!!!

    •  

      Yeah what the hell, I just remembered about this. Haven't received mine either. Ringing them up tomorrow.

  •  

    Sorry, you cannot buy this deal. Have a look at some other deals here!

  •  

    Deal is not expired - keeps being extended. Currently 17,905 sold, 4days 8hours left (but probably will be extended)

  •  

    18/4 bought 1 deal
    28/4 received movie voucher email

    Great deal - 2 movies & probably 2 $6 burger deals for $12.
