How To Get Free & Discounted Cinema Tickets This Month

Your plans for the weekend are sorted.

It might be officially spring, but that doesn’t mean the weather is perfect yet. If you’re faced with boredom on a rainy day and would rather not be outside but don’t want to stay at home, there’s nothing like a late-night cinema trip to keep you busy (and of course, fill up on snacks).

While going to the cinema is a great night out if you’re bored, sometimes the tickets really aren’t cheap these days. Luckily, there are loads of ways you can get free or discounted cinema tickets which won’t break the bank— just maybe lay off the snacks at the cinema and buy them from Tesco instead as cinema prices are spenny.

So, if you’re craving an Ice Blast and need something to do this weekend here’s how you can get cheap and discounted cinema tickets this month.

How can I get cheap or discounted cinema tickets at Vue?

  • As an o2 or Virgin Media customer: If you have a phone contract with o2 or broadband with Virgin you’ll be able to take advantage of the current Priority promotion which can get you two Vue cinema tickets for £9 weekly and 20% off all snacks. You’ll need to use the o2 Priority app to claim which will give you a unique code you can enter on the Vue website when booking your movie screening.
  • With Sky Cinema: If your parents have a Sky membership, now’s the time to ask them to borrow it as you can actually get free Vue tickets if you prefer to watch movies on the big screen rather than at home. You can get a pair of free tickets each month by redeeming them on the My Sky app which gives you two standard seat tickets for a movie of your choice. You can visit the cinema on any day except Saturdays and Fridays so it’s perfect for a mid-week night out.
  • With Compare The Market: If you’ve taken out car, travel or contents insurance with Compare The Market it makes you eligible for the Meerkat Movies rewards. This means you can get 2-for-1 tickets at Vue cinemas every Tuesday and Wednesday every single week.

How can I get cheap or discounted cinema tickets at ODEON?

  • As a Vodafone customer: If you have a phone or broadband contract with Vodafone, one of the current perks is two standard cinema tickets at ODEON for £8. You could also enjoy two Luxe tickets for £14 instead and you can claim either ticket offer every single week while this promotion is running. With standard adult tickets currently costing £14 on average, this is a great deal. You’ll need to claim via the Vodafone app under the VeryMe Rewards scheme.
  • With Amazon Prime: If you’re an Amazon Prime member you can also enjoy discounted ODEON tickets. This offer includes two tickets for £10, or two Luxe tickets for £15 which is valid between Monday-Thursday. You can claim this by logging into your Amazon Prime account and selecting “Get ODEON tickets” under your account settings. Once you’ve done this, you can get a code which you can use on the ODEON website to book tickets. You can only do this offer once a month, so choose your movie wisely. Don’t forget students can get a discount on an Amazon Prime membership where you can get 6 months completely FREE.
  • With ODEON myLIMITLESS: If you know you go to the cinema often, it might be worth getting an ODEON myLIMITLESS membership to save you some money. It costs £14.99 a month which will allow you to see as many films as you want and a 10% discount on food and drink and occasional early film screenings. With the cost of an adult ticket averaging at £14, this is well worth getting if you know you’ll be going more than twice a month.

So, whether you’re planning on seeing Dune Part 2 or Bob Marley: One Love, grab your discounted cinema tickets now and get planning for those rainy days.
