AMC Stubs Rewards Program
(6/15/2012) Update on the AMC Stubs Reward Program:
So it’s been nearly a year since I first posted my thoughts about the AMC Stubs Reward Program and I wanted to dig up this old post to say…
I was wrong.
After researching the program a bit further, we did finally end up taking the leap and became AMC Stubs Reward members.
Throughout the past several months, we’ve definitely made our $12 back. We’ve saved consistently on popcorn and soda.
More importantly, though, there are the special programs that AMC offers that frankly, I forgot about when first writing this post so long ago. Those programs (especially the sensory-friendly films) are important to families and to movie-goers (including myself!) and are worth supporting, even if it means paying a little extra for other benefits.
The AMC Best Picture Showcase is something we attend almost every year – and this year all AMC Stubs Rewards members actually received a bonus reward to enjoy that day.
(July 2011) Original AMC Stubs Program review:
Are you a member of AMC Stubs Rewards program? The last time we were at AMC, we saw this new program (and unfortunately, didn’t get much explanation about it). Since we didn’t really know what it was and we didn’t get any guidance from associates (and it’s not free), we decided against signing up.
I was curious, though, so I researched online and found out what the program was all about. Basically, you pay $12/year for the AMC Stubs Rewards program.
With your AMC Stubs Rewards Program card, you’ll get:
- $10 AMC Stubs reward for every $100 you spend at AMC Theatres. – Includes tickets, concessions, gift cards and more.
- Free upgrades on popcorn and fountain drinks.
- Online ticket purchase fees waived.
- Your online ticket stub collection.
I’ll spare you the rant about having to pay for a customer loyalty card (seriously, I just hit delete on the rant. You’re welcome.) But I definitely wish (times three) that they had a FREE rewards program option. We’re such loyal customers of businesses that have incredible rewards programs (see Qdoba, Regal and the like). And we like that those businesses truly appreciate the $$ we’re already sending their way — and more importantly, show that appreciation through high-value coupons. Often.
If you’re a regular AMC attendee, then this could be a good deal for you. Since more often than not, we can be found at Regal on a Friday night (where the popcorn is FREE all summer long), we’ll be passing on this one. We’re open to reconsideration, though, AMC. We totally are. We just think the money we’re spending on tickets and concessions is already enough. Just sayin’.
