Are You Using Your Theater Loyalty Card?

What is your favorite theater, and are you using their loyalty card? I have encouraged movie goers to sign up for their favorite movie house's card (you can do so online), but while many of you might have signed up, you have left your card at home, so you miss out on valuable incentives. This last week I used my Krikorian Premiere card and received free popcorn on Wednesday, and I also earned a free movie ticket with my accumulated points. Can't go wrong there! My answer to always having my cards and coupons on hand....BIGGER WALLETS! Mine is seriously bulging! I encourage you to go shopping for a bigger wallet so you have everything you need with you at all times to take advantage of all the savings out there! See you at the movies!
