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

Tue/Wed

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.

Vue logoVue Cinemas armed forces discount15%-20% discount using MoD card

Ongoing

At Vue Cinemas across the UK military personnel can show a Defence Privilege Card or MoD service ID to get up to 20% off a cinema ticket.

Discounts range from 15%-20% and this is dependent on location. The discount is valid seven days a week on all films. Tickets must be purchased from the box office, not online.

 

More info

Valid for the cardholder’s ticket only. So if you are in the armed forces and buying tickets for others, only yours will be discounted.

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.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help MoneySavingExpert.com: Currently no affil links.
