Let’s Go To The Movies: 5 Money-Saving Tips

1. Attend a matinee movie: Matinee movies are less expensive that attending a movie during the latter part of the day. In my area, a matinee movie cost $5 while a movie in the evening cost $7.50.

2. Check into specials: Cinemark has summer special for kids where they can see 10 movies for $5. Of course they are not the latest and greatest, but it is entertainment for the kids. They also allow you to sign up for emails that offer specials on movies and concession stand food.

3. Eat before going to the movies: Have you seen the prices at the concession stands lately? $10 for popcorn, $8 for a hot dog, $7 for a soda (You may think these prices are dramatic, but they are not that far from actual). It is better to eat a snack or meal prior to going to the movies, this will help you avoid the concession stand.

4. Seek out concession values: Now I know I said to eat prior to going to the movies, but what if you decided to go to the movies at the last minute and you want a snack. Okay, by all means, go the concession stand but check to see if they have concession values first. What I mean by this is my local movie theatre, Cinemark offers a great value on their drinks and popcorn. You purchase a Large Popcorn and Soda and you can use the cup and popcorn bucket year round and it will only cost you $3 per fill up.

5. Skip 3D & IMAX and see it in 2D instead: My husband took all of us to see the Avengers in IMAX 3D and I am almost ashamed to tell you how much the tickets were…Okay, I’ll tell ya…over $40 for $4 people…okay more like $50. It was a treat for the boys, but we don’t do that too often. Actually when you see a movie in 3D, the ticket prices rise by another $2-$3

I know that I said I was going to give you 5, but I have one more just for fun.

6. Stay home: Stay home and have movie night instead. My hubby and I are movie buffs and own a lot of movies on DVD/Blue-Ray and we have movie nights at least 2 or 3 times per week. The good thing about watching movies at home is that you can pause it when you need to take a potty break, can get comfortable and don’t have to worry about people talking on their cellphones during the movie.

 

What are some things that you do to help save money at the movies?

How You Can Help: Let’s Work Together To Stop #ChildHunger

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Congra Foods, Ralphs, The Motherhood and The Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign.  All opinions expressed are that of my own

 

It hurts to my heart to know that so many children are still going hungry and happy to support the Congra Foods, Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign.

Did you that more than one in five children, including more than one in four Latino children, in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from? That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.

Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.

At ConAgra Foods, we find this unacceptable. That’s why we are partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.

Child Hunger Ends Here

How Can You Help?

Look for the red pushpin on participating product packaging for a code found on these specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products. For each 8-digit code entered at
www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com from March-August 2014, ConAgra Foods or P&G, respectively, will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.

Child Hunger Ends Here is proud to work with Hunter Hayes and be the presenting sponsor of his “We’re Not Invisible” tour. For every download of Hunter’s new single, “Invisible,” on iTunes, Child Hunger Ends Here will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to the nation’s leading hunger relief charity, Feeding America, up to 1 million meals.

One of the easiest ways to learn how to get involved is to join the Child Hunger Ends Here Facebook community or follow the news on Twitter and Instagram at
