Dinner and a movie – though it’s one of those traditional dates that can make you feel like you’re in a rut, it’s one of those date night ideas that we all go on. For regular movie-goers, it can get quite expensive, with the price of movie tickets increasing frequently.
Here are a few surefire ways to save money on your next movie date night:
Hump Date at the VIP Theatre
$50 for two admissions to the VIP theater and two dinners, that’s almost like getting the food for free at the theater. If you’re searching for a quick dinner and date, where you can order your dinner and have it delivered to your seat, while you watch the movie – hump date is available on Wednesday nights and can be ordered online.
Use Scene Points
Using a Scotiabank debit or visa card can earn you scene points, that translate into free movies when you head to the theater. Using my debit card, I earn enough points that I can’t remember the last time I had to pay for movie tickets. Regular theaters require 1,000 points for a ticket redemption, and 2,000 points will get you into the VIP theater. As a bonus, scene points can get you 10% off at concession.
Buy Movie Passes at Costco
Buying movie passes at Costco is an easy way to save a few dollars. Movie passes can be purchased online (even without a membership) and make for an easy, inclusive date-night. Passes can be printed from home, but don’t always arrive quickly via email, so make sure to buy the tickets in advance.
Tuesday Night ‘Cheap Nights’
Planning your movie date for a Tuesday night can be a great way to save. If there’s a movie that you can wait to see, wait until Tuesday and either book the tickets online or buy the tickets at the theater to save a few bucks.
