Meerkat Movies logoMeerkat Movies 2for1 cinema ticketsYear's 2for1 from £2ish. New & existing 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?

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

Military personnel can show a 'Rewards for Forces' membership card, or valid military ID card to get the equivalent of a student discount at Vue Cinemas across the UK.

The discount ranges from 15%-20% depending on location. Vue says the offer is valid on any film at any time and it's valid for the cardholder’s ticket only. So if you're in the armed forces and buying tickets for others, only yours will be discounted.

Vue logoVue Cinemas: MoneySaving tips & tricksIncl student discount and O2 Priority deals

Ongoing

There are always ways to save money at Vue Cinemas, 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 discounts. Vue offers discounts for students when you buy tickets online or in the cinema. You'll need to show a valid student ID on the day.

  • Senior screenings. 'Seniors Cinema Club' screenings are available for over-60's at selected cinemas. The ticket price includes a free cup of tea and biscuit.

  • Check for Nectar deals. Nectar has an ongoing offer that lets you spend its points at Vue (500 points = £2.50). Occasionally Nectar also offers special deals where you can double-up the value of your points, so keep an eye on our Loyalty Points Boosting guide for the latest updates.

  • O2 Priority. O2 Priority occasionally offers deals for cinemas, such as discounts on tickets or free popcorn. Even if you're not on O2, you may be able to get an Odeon deal - see our O2 Priority Moments for Everyone! guide to find out how.

  • Check out Cineworld, Odeon 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.

  • Had a problem with Vue Cinemas? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Vue Cinemas*

Tickets usually cost between £6-£14 for adults (highest prices being in London), so this deal will save you a decent amount.

It’s worth noting some films are excluded (see below) and you’ll only be able to use this tickets when booking online, not in person at the box office.

How to get it

  • Once you've bought the deal via this Groupon* link, you should receive an email from Groupon with a unique voucher code for each ticket.
  • Head onto the Vue website and redeem the vouchers any time from Tue 29 Aug - Sun 8 Oct. Once you've selected your screening and time, enter your codes under the 'enter your promo code' box.

The voucher is valid for standard 2D showings at all Vue cinemas, except Leicester Square, Westfield Stratford and Westfield Shepherd's Bush, and doesn't include 3D showings (though you can upgrade your ticket for the difference).

It’s not valid on screenings of Kingsman the Golden CircleBlade Runner 2049 and all movies classified 18+.

London is classed as all cinemas within the M25.

Before you buy, is it worth it? 

With this deal, you'll effectively be getting tickets for £4.33 each outside London and £5.32 inside London – considerably cheaper than the normal prices of £6-£14. You can use them over the weekends, which you can't do with most other deals. Before buying, check prices at your local cinema as some independent chains may be cheaper.

Unfortunately, the voucher isn't valid with the Meerkat Movies deal, which can get you 2for1 cinema tickets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (see our Deals Hunters blogMeerkat Movies trick: £2ish gets 2for1 movies for a year). So check which offer works out cheaper for you - if your local Vue sells tickets for less than £8, you may be able to get a cheaper deal with Meerkat Movies on those days.

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.
