I don’t think Ben has posted about this promotion yet this summer, but if you have a Visa Signature card, you could be getting Buy One Get One Free movie tickets on Fridays through August 21st.

You must purchase the tickets through the Visa Signature portal, and the offer is limited to one free ticket per card per 30 day period. As opposed to previous years, you can actually purchase the tickets beginning Wednesday for Friday showings, which is helpful.


You can also purchase gift cards at a 20% discount, which might be useful for some. I prefer to buy movie theater gift cards at either grocery or office supply stores where I can earn bonus points though.


I always purchase movie tickets online in advance, so the Fandango processing fees are a bit of a sunk cost for me personally. If you’re seeing a prime showing in IMAX or 3D this could save you quite a bit, and would certainly offset the “convenience” charges.

A quick look through the wallets and desk drawers in our house reveals the following cards with the Visa Signature logo:

Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Card
British Airways Visa Signature® Card
Chase Freedom® (mine does, his doesn’t – check your card)
Chase Hyatt Visa Card
Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card
Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card
Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card
Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card

And then I believe the following are Visa Signature as well:

Citi® Hilton HHonors Reserve Card
Fairmont Visa Signature Credit Card
The New Virgin America Visa Signature® Credit Cards
United MileagePlus® Explorer Card

There are probably others as well, so feel free to list them in the comments.

Anyways, not earth-shattering news, but we actually left the house and went to a movie this weekend, so I thought it might be useful to others as well. It’s an easy ~$10 – $15 savings without major hoops to jump through, if nothing else.

Has anyone used this perk this summer?

  1. Wait, you would rather get 5 UR points than a 20% discount and 2 Citi Thank You points? I think your addiction to UR points has run amok!

  2. @ farnorthtrader — Ohhhhhh that’s a great point! I’d completely forgotten that you might not need to use a Visa card to make the purchase. Will research and update post accordingly, thank you!

  3. I tried this on Friday night with my CSP card. My card number was accepted and then the site said that they had “run out” of available 2-1 offers. Saving $13 is nice, but I really dislike these kind of limited offers as they they make me feel like a mouse running through a Chase-created cage: “Go visit this web site, maybe they’ll be some cheese if we feel like feeding you.”

  4. You have to plan in advance. Two weeks ago, they had already run out of offers by 6pm EDT friday when I tried to buy tickets.

  5. No, you are right, thank you points would not be an option, has to be visa signature points. Still, you would trade 4 extra UR points for 20 percent in cash?
