expired 2x Event Cinemas Tickets, 2x Small Popcorn, 2x Small Drinks for $40 via PayPal

41

There seems to be a distinct lack of movie deals right now. Hoyts are not in convenient locations for me to use the Optus offer.
Anyone seen a deal for a book of 10 Screen Savers?
A standard admission ticket is $18.50 and a small popcorn and drink online is $10.50.

Anyway, I quote:

    Titled "Our Christmas Present to You". If someone gave me two tickets to the cinema and said, go nuts at the concession stand, but only a small popcorn and small drink I would think they were being stingy.

    Thanks Event McScrooge!

    [Definitely a first world problem I know!]

    That's a deal? If that's the case if it wasn't for Cineplex I would never goto the movies.

      I know right! still upset that Rydges code is gone..Just because sometimes I can't be bothered to go to Sthbank so pay a bit more for something closer.

      and Cineplex is still cheaper than $40 an dit's all the time.

      same

      I'm guessing your in QLD where they have reasonable movie prices?

      Not so in NSW, alas. Normal ticket price is $15-20.

        That's how much we pay in QLD. It's just that's there's one chain (Cineplex) that don't feel the need to rape every customer.

    It's not a 'bad' deal for people who don't have access to a Cineplex location or a cheap ticket deal (such as the $6.50 for students @ Bris Myer Centre).

    It's probably saving a few dollars per person I'd guess

    Weren't event tickets $6 the other day? That would mean you're paying $28 for 2 small popcorns and 2 small drinks. This is supposed to be ozBARGAIN.

        still possible if you print the card and flash it at the box office

    So can use sat night or sunday. Not really a deal then

    Such a shitty deal, can get 2 tickets for $20 via quite a few different deals and 2 small drinks and popcorn would only cost $10.

    Via Optus they're $12 each
    Via RACQ they're $11 each
    Via NRMA they're $12 each
    Via Ridges they're $10 each
    Via Student discounts STM2012 they're $10 each

    The above amounts are inclusive of the $2 fee for online booking.

      Optus and Rydges don't work any more.

      I believe the RAC deals still work, but (at least for WA) you need to buy physical vouchers in advance, rather than using a code on their website.

        rydges always worked when you bought physically

      So what if I'm not part of RACQ, NRMA or a student?

        If your car breaks down you'll be stuck and you can't use your bus pass to catch the bus.

    Buy 2 full overpriced tickets and get 2 SMALL overpriced popcorn and 2 drinks for $3?

    Not very inspiring.

    After the Event Cinemas debacle, i'm now a club dendy member. $16 for 2 years to join and $14 per movie (inclusive of booking fee).

    I preferred the Rydges deal but I reckon this is 2nd best if you go to the movies reasonably often.

      Dendy & Palace membership doesn't make much sense anymore considering you can purchase Cinema Saver tickets from various online sources for around $10 each.

    Optus Movie Rewards is now with Hoyts instead of Event. $10 tickets for any session except for Sat nights. https://www.yestickets.com.au/movierewards/
    Seems like they have added some Dendy and Reading cinemas as well, quite a comprehensive list:
    https://www.yestickets.com.au/movierewards/cinemas
    I do miss Event not being on there though. I hear that people simply go to the supermarket and grab a $2 Optus SIM, activate it and then you are an Optus customer!

    When did rydges expire? I used it a couple of weeks ago to see 007.

    Well, in case anyone ever wonders, I used this deal and now regret it. Nothing against the original poster, just a failure of service on the part of Experience This - see http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/90897 for the whole story.
