thanks del thanks mel :D :D

oh and the new rollover thing is definitely cool but i've figured out my own workaround. take this month for instance, january is the worst month for movies all year, and I didn't use any of my 3 tickets. every day for the past three days, i've purchased a ticket thru fandango with one of my Sinemia credits, and then returned the ticket for credit on Fandango, which allows returns up to the posted showtime. and I used the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn since it's nearby my work and I could walk over there on my lunch and check in. so now I have like $45 in Fandango credit that I can use for whatever, whenever

I have a month left on my Costco MoviePass and it's actually been pretty great for the past month or two. Just have to get to the theater exactly when they open in the morning to make sure you get a ticket. :lol:

you can also disable background data, open the app at 8am, select the movie you want to see, and then not close or refresh the app.

saw Destroyer that way this weekend, and the guy at the box office was audibly surprised when my card wasn't declined.

they used to offer both monthly and yearly. i'm sure the monthly plans will come back at some point. I'm still on a monthly $7.99 for 3 movies a month plan. I also just got this message, "You have an extra 1 movie day available that has rolled over from last month. Enjoy!" even though I used all three movies last month, but I'm not gonna complain about a free movie! lol

did you use my referral link btw? it's all good if you didn't but I didn't see the $20 credit yet so I just wanted to ask before I talk to customer support

ah ok. $10 is still pretty rad. i knew it was $10 previously but I had seen this banner by the wallet page yesterday so I thought maybe it had gone up (that banner isn't a link to a page with more details or anything, it's just an image I guess)

honestly the monthly plans could come back any day now. their promos come and go pretty quickly. as you can see by this reddit page, the monthly plans had reappeared as recently as three days ago:

Yo RIXX, my gf and I are gonna use yr link. She just went through it and it just dumped her to the front page of their site. No obvious indication of referral credit. Is that correct?

I'm so fucking pissed at Sinemia already and I'm not even a subscriber yet.

Bought the $100 GC for $70 as part of the Valentine's sale. Turns out you can't actually use the GC until 2/14, when the prices will presumably rise to make the discount on the GC entirely worthless. Shady as fuck. They've already gone up $1/mo, actually.

I thought this thread was bumped to talk about how Sinemia has locked everyone out of their accounts unless they provide pictures of their government-issued ID and a photo of themselves holding their ID. according to this reddit thread you can blur out ur license number and address, which I did because this company is not US-based and this feels sketchy as fuck. my verification is still pending...

this is insane to save like $10 a month on movies theres not even anything good playing rn

some company needs to come thru and just really streamline this or theaters need to do a better job at rolling out their own versions. i'd sign up for the AMC plan but i've moved and there isn't one around me anymore.

Honestly I know Sinemia is a piece of shit company and they're gonna keep trying to nickel-and-dime me and pull sketchy shit over and over because this is an impossible business model that isn't profitable or sustainable, and this company will die just like Moviepass did sooner rather than later. So it's all about swerving around the shady tactics and riding this wave until it's over and these companies no longer exist, because for now, $7.99 for three movies a month is still an incredible deal and worth putting up with their bullshit for.

i've been using my 3 movies a month on shitty movies and getting fandango refunds during these dregs of the cinema year when nothing is playing. so i have like $100+ in fandango credit by now.

and i save on average ~ $30 a month with this service, versus if i was to alternatively pay full price for 3 films a month
