Cineworld logoCineworld £1.60/£1.75 films for kidsWith free myCineworld account. School holidays and weekends


Keep your nippers (and yourself) amused on weekend and school holiday mornings with Movies For Juniors kids’ films at Cineworld. It’s £1.58 per showing, per person if you book online with a myCineworld account, or £1.75 if bought at the cinema box office, for both adults and sprogs. 

What is myCineworld?  

myCineworld is a free online account that gives you access to Cineworld deals (including 10% off online bookings), forthcoming offers, faster booking and a newsletter (if you opt in). To get it, simply register online. It’s totally free. 

3D films are more expensive - £2.93 per person (if booked online with myCineworld, or £3.25 if bought at the cinema). Remember the glasses aren’t included, so unless you have some already, it’s £1 each on top of the ticket.

The offer's available on selected films only and will vary per cinema. See website for current listings.

MSE Anna says:

Although the films on offer aren’t the latest movies, kids’ tickets usually cost upwards of £7, so this is a decent saving.

We looked at the other major cinemas and found this deal to be cheapest out there for kids - see Cheap Cinema Tickets for Vue and Odeon offers.

More info

Adults can't get this offer unless they are accompanied by a child. A child is classified as aged 14 or under, though films are aimed at under eight audiences. 

Meerkat Movies logoMeerkat Movies - 2for1 cinema ticketsYear's 2for1 from £2ish. New & existing comparison site customers


If you use the comparison website Compare The Market, or if you’ve used it during the past year, you can get 2for1 cinema tickets every Tuesday or Wednesday for 12 months from the date you use the site to get a credit card, loan or insurance, or switch your energy, broadband, TV or landline provider.

The offer expires 12 months after the date of your purchase or switch, not 12 months from when you activate it. Please note: activation can take at least 48 hours, so you’ll have to be patient.

How much do I have to spend?

Compare The Market isn’t always the cheapest place to buy insurance (see our insurance guides for the top deals), but you can get Meerkat Movies by spending as little as £2ish on a single-trip travel insurance policy for one person travelling within the UK. For more on this trick, read our Deals Hunters blog.

What do I get?

You're entitled to one voucher per week (so you can't go both days) and to get it you can either download the Meerkat Movies app (iPhone and Android only) or log in at the website. You can then simply print the code or show it on your smartphone at the box office. 

If you fancy an IMAX screening, want to upgrade to premium seats or see a 3D film, you'll be asked to pay the price difference between this and a standard cinema ticket.

Where can I use it?

Like the extremely popular Orange Wednesdays (which ended shortly before Meerkat Movies launched), it's valid at most cinemas across the UK - the big chains (eg, Cineworld, Odeon and Vue) as well as lots of independents - but not all of them. If in doubt, check with your local cinema before turning up.

Important: 2for1 cinema tickets should never be your reason for choosing a product like insurance. Use other sites to check it's a good deal and don't be swayed by freebies that could end up costing you a lot more in the long run.

More info

To qualify for Meerkat Movies membership, you need to purchase one of the following products via Compare The Market: car, motorcycle, home, van, pet, landlord, life, home/content or travel insurance. You can also qualify by taking out a credit card or loan or switch energy, digital TV or broadband supplier.

You can only hold one Meerkat Movies membership in any 12-month period, but if you purchase a second product whilst you have an active Meerkat Movies membership you can choose to claim a cuddly toy instead.

Cineworld logoCineworld Unlimited for £16.90/monthVia 12-month subscription. £19.90/mth for London's West End


If you sign up online for Cineworld's Unlimited Card for £16.90/month you can watch as many films as you want (it's £19.90 if you want to visit London's West End cinema too). 

This card should save you money if you normally see more than one film at the cinema a month. You'll also get 10% off food and drink.

Important: If you choose to pay monthly, you'll be signing up to a minimum 12-month subscription. If you don't want to continue after the 12 months is up, make sure you mark it in your diary to cancel.

You can also pay a one-off fee of £202.80 for 12 months, which works out the same as paying £16.90/month for 12 months. This could work out better for you if you'd prefer not to sign up to a subscription. 

If you collect Tesco Clubcard vouchers, you can exchange them for a 12-month Unlimited Card. See our Deals Hunters' blog to find out how.

Cineworld logoCineworld: MoneySaving tips & tricksIncl student discount and O2 Priority deals


There are always ways to save money at Cineworld, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Student discount. Cineworld says it offers a student discount at selected times - check online or call your nearest cinema to find out when you can get it. You'll need to show a valid NUS student ID.
  • Up to 40% off ticket prices with Tastecard+. Members of Tastecard+ can get up to 40% off at Cineworld. This is a decent saving if you're already a member, but if you're thinking of signing up, check first if it's worth it for you. See our Tastecard page for deals.
  • O2 Priority. O2 Priority often offers deals for Cineworld, such as discounts on tickets or free popcorn. Even if you're not on O2, you may be able to get a Cineworld deal - see our O2 Priority Moments for Everyone! guide to find out how.
  • Check out Odeon, Vue and any other major cinemas. If you're able to visit another cinema near you, check out our Cheap Cinema Deals page for deals from other cinema chains, as they may have better offers.

Expired Deals

Sweet Sundays logo'Free' Sunday cinema ticket when you buy £4 of sweetsLook out for special packs of Revels, M&M's, Maltesers & more


You can get a 'free' cinema ticket on Sundays at participating cinemas (including Cineworld and some independent cinemas, but excluding Odeon and Vue - see the full list), when you buy promotional chocolate pouches before 14 Oct 2015.

The bags include M&M's, Maltesers, Minstrels, Galaxy Counters and Revels (see the full list). You need to buy four small pouches or two large pouches to get the 'free' ticket. Make sure they have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them.

Where can I buy the Sweet Sundays pouches?

You can buy the promotional chocolate pouches at most major supermarkets, but to make the most of this deal, it's best to buy them when they're on offer, or at the lowest price available. The cheapest we've found the large pouches is £1.80 at Asda (next cheapest is £2.50 at Sainsbury's). The smaller pouches are on offer for £1 (norm £2.09) at Asda until Fri 17 Jul.

So if you can find the promotional packs in your local Asda, you'd effectively be buying your cinema snacks for £3.60-£4 and getting your ticket, which can cost up to £10, for 'free'.

How do I get the 'free' ticket?

  1. Make sure you have enough promo packs of sweets (see the picture on the right for what to look out for).
  2. Find the codes at the bottom of the bags.
  3. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter the codes.
  4. Find your nearest participating cinema (incl Cineworld, Showcase and Reel Cinemas. See the full list).
  5. Cineworld cinemas will send vouchers by email. All other cinemas will be sent by post, which can take up to two weeks. 
  6. The vouchers can be used on 2D films at participating cinemas, every Sunday until 1 Nov 2015.


How good is this deal?

If you're able to buy the promotional packs for £4ish you could make a decent saving with this deal, depending on ticket prices at your local cinema. Buying four small pouches would cost you £8ish at full-price, so it's only worth doing if your tickets normally cost more (unless you were planning to buy the chocolate anyway).

More info

Valid on 2D screenings on Sundays only. Max two free cinema tickets per person. Tickets must be used by 1 Nov 2015. 13+ only. Excludes premieres, 3D films, previews and premium seats. Can't be used with any other offer.

Cineworld logo'Free' cinema ticket when you buy £1.60 of Tic TacsLook out for special 'Happy Rewards' packs of sweets


You can get a 'free' cinema ticket for any 2D film at any Cineworld when you buy promotional Tic Tacs before Wed 30 Sep. Do note, you won’t be able to instantly claim the tickets. 

What Tic Tacs should I buy to claim the ‘free’ tickets?

  • You need to buy four small 18g boxes (see image, below) or two large 48g promo boxes.
  • Then enter the codes found on the pack online to get the 'free' ticket, just make sure they have the Happy Rewards promotion on them. It's one 'free' Cineworld ticket per over 16 (find your nearest).
  • The flavours with promotional branding include: fresh mint, strawberry fields, apple burst, spearmint twist, cherry passion and lime and orange.

Where can I buy the Happy Rewards Tic Tacs?

  • You can get the promotional boxes at most major supermarkets,
  • Asda has a three for £1 offer on 18g Tic Tacs running until at least the end of the year - you'll have to buy a fourth (60p each) to get a free ticket for £1.60.
  • Tesco is running a similar offer of three for £1.20 until Sat 3 Oct, so with the fourth box at 60p you’ll pay £1.80 per ticket - a great saving as cinema tickets can cost up to £10.

How do I get the 'free' ticket?

  1. Find the pack codes behind the label and register them online at Happy Rewards to get your reward points. You can only enter one code per person, per day, so this deal isn’t instant.
  2. Once you've four points (one per small box, two for a large), click 'claim' a free cinema ticket. A Cineworld eCode will appear immediately.
  3. Show the eCode within three months at the box office or you can book online (there's a 50p fee).


How good is this deal?

Even if you're unable to buy the promotional packs for £1.60ish, they’re normally about 60p each which means each ticket will cost you £2.40 - still a decent saving on the cost of an adult ticket, which is normally up to £10. Just remember you can only enter one pack code per day on the website, so you will need to plan in advance of your cinema visit as this will take 2-4 days.

If you're planning to go with friends or family, they'll each need their own account and promotional boxes of Tic Tac sweets to redeem the offer. If your kids are under 16 they won't be able to register or collect codes, so check out our family friendly cheap cinema deals instead to see if there's a deal for your little ones, too.

More info

Not valid for 4DX, D-Box, IMAX, Super screen or Alternative Content, special Unlimited screenings, VIP/premium seating or redemption via telephone booking. eCode is valid for three months from date of issue and can't be used with any other offer.

If you want to upgrade to see a 3D film, it's £2.20 per adult and £1.60 per child extra.

Sweet Sundays logo'Free' cinema ticket with £8 worth of sweetsLook out for special packs of Revels, M&Ms, Maltesers & more


You can get a 'free' cinema ticket valid on Sundays at participating cinemas - which include Cineworld - when you buy four big bags of promotional chocolates before 19 Nov 2014. The share bags include Galaxy Counters, Revels, M&Ms, Maltesers, Minstrels, Twix, Mars Mix, Galaxy Bites and Magic Stars. They must have the Sweet Sundays promotion on them.

The promotional bags are £2 at Tesco, so you're effectively buying your cinema snacks for £8 and getting your ticket, which can cost up to £10, for 'free'. 

Once you have all four promo packs of sweets, follow these steps:

  1. Find the codes inside the bags (they're at the bottom).
  2. Register online at Sweet Sundays and enter the codes.
  3. Find your nearest participating cinema (Cineworld, Showcase, Apollo and Movie House).
  4. You'll be sent a voucher via SMS, email or post. Cineworld cinemas are only able to send vouchers by email or text. If you pick a Cineworld, you can book your tickets in advance, but if you choose to go to any of the others, you can only go on the day.
MSE Charlotte says:

As I like to go the extra mile at work, I went in our local Tesco pick up a bag (or four) of chocolates to try this out. Be warned, the bags were mixed in with non-promotional packs - so really keep an eye out.

It's also useful to know you can get two tickets per Sweet Sundays account, so unless you're going to the movies solo it's probably worth picking up eight packs so two of you can go - although after eight bags of sweets, you'd probably feel too sick to enjoy the film.

More info

Valid on 2D screenings on Sundays only. Max two free cinema tickets per person. Tickets must be used by 17 Dec 2014. 13+ only. Excludes premieres, 3D films, previews and premium seats. Can't be used with any other offer.

Cineworld logoTWO Cineworld tix for £12, incl central Ldn*Usually up to £12.50 EACH. Online booking only. Excludes 3D films


Buy a voucher from daily deals site Tap4Offers* to get two tickets valid at ALL Cineworld cinemas nationwide for £12. The offer's available till 11.59 on Fri 16 May or till its 6,000+ vouchers (as of Tue 13 May at 10.45am) sell out. It originally had 10,000 pairs. The voucher’s valid till Fri 18 Jul.

Before you buy, is worth it for you?

A full price online ticket (which saves 10% on walk-up prices) can cost between £4.32-£12.51 depending on location, time and whether its for an adult or child. As you can see this offer isn't always worth it as two tickets might not even make £12. 

So, before buying this deal check Cineworld prices for your local cinema. Certainly in London's West End you can save up to £13.02 for two adult tickets (saving you over 50%).

How to get it?

You'll have to book online with this offer so you can't just turn up at the cinema. Here's the process: 

  1. Pay for the Two tickets for £12 code* before 11.59pm Fri 16 May or before 10,000 pairs go - whichever's first. You'll be emailed a code instantly.
    Note: You will have to sign up to its newsletter emails, but you can unsubscribe at any time. 
  2. Redeem this code via the link in the confirmation email and it’ll email you two Cineworld booking codes (different to the first code), which you’ll need to book your tickets.
  3. To book, go online to Cineworld and insert your codes in the “Use a promotion code” box.  You’ll have to enter your credit/debit card details, but rest assured, Tap4Offers has confirmed you WON'T have to pay anything on top of the £12 you paid for the voucher.
  4. To collect at the cinema, show the box office the booking confirmation on your smartphone, or a printout of it. Or collect the tickets from a machine with the credit/debit card used on booking. 

It's for standard tickets only, so it excludes 3D. The tickets are valid till 18 Jul 2014. It's worth noting you could use the two codes separately so you can go twice yourself using one voucher. It's max two vouchers per Tap4offers account.

Why is it so cheap? 

It’s almost certain the firm will have bought the tickets so it can sell vouchers as a loss-leader to build a database of potential customers.  We’ve seen group-buying sites do this before. 

What is Tap4Offers?

It's a newish group-buying website. We've mentioned the same deal before in Feb (was £11 instead of £12) and feedback on our forum was good. 

More info

Valid for standard tickets and seating only, so it excludes 3D, “alternative content”, special advance screenings, IMAX, D-Box and VIP boxes. The voucher's valid for online bookings only.

Cineworld logo'Free' cinema ticket with £3 notebookCineworld tickets usually £8-£9 so massive saving


Buy two promotional Oxford notebooks (A4 or A5 300 refill pads or Wiro notebooks) by Sat 31 Dec to get a free Cineworld ticket (£8ish). The books have previously been on offer at Tesco and Sainsbury's, so keep an eye out for deals to boost the discount even further.

To get your ticket, enter two promo codes (found on the reverse of the attached leaflet) online at Oxford notebooks. You'll be sent an email with your unique e-code to book online at Cineword by 31 March 2014.

MSE Charlotte says:

It's only one ticket per two books, so you'll have to get four pads if you want to take a friend. There is a max of two tickets per household though.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
