Queen of Free – Saving Money at the Movies


THROUGH A SLIGHTLY COOLER BEHIND THAT UPPER 40S FRIDAY AND SATURDAY HERE DOESN’T LOVE A NIGHT OUT AT THE MOVIES. WE HAVE YUMMY SNACKS LIKE POPCORN AND CANDY PLUS THE MOVIE. BUT ALL OF THAT FUN REALLY CAN ADD UP. YOU DON’T HAVE TO SNEAK IN SNACKS OR AVOID GOING ALTOGETHER THOUGH. SHERRY LOWE ,THE QUEEN AFRAID SHE’S HERE TO TELL US HOW TO GET THE BOTH THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS ACTUALLY AND SHERRY. I MEAN HOW DO WE BEGIN BY BUDGETING FOR THE MOVIE? RIGHT. SO I’M ALWAYS GOING TO START WITH THIS. I PROBABLY SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD. BUT YOU NEED AN ENTERTAINMENT BUDGET SO THAT YOU CAN DO THINGS THAT ARE FUN ON THE REGULAR WITHOUT GOING OVERBOARD. AND SO YOU NEED TO BE SETTING ASIDE A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF YOUR INCOME TO HAVE FUN NOW AND THEN BECAUSE IT’S OK TO ENJOY WHAT YOU EARN .HOW BENEFICIAL CAN THOSE REWARDS PROGRAMS BE? I THINK THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO SUPPLEMENT A BUDGET FOR ENTERTAINMENT. IF YOU’VE GOT ZERO DOLLARS FOR ENTERTAINMENT THAT’S FINE. THERE’S STILL WAYS AROUND IT. SO I LOVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT REWARDS PROGRAMS. I HAVE LINKED OUT ON QUEEN TO FREE DOT NET TODAY THINGS LIKE SWAG BOX SHOP KICKS AND FETCH REWARDS. THOSE ARE THREE OF MY TOP ONES. ALL OF THEM HAVE AN OPTION WHERE YOU CAN CASH OUT THOSE REWARD POINTS AND GET GIFT CARDS FOR MOVIE THEATERS. SO WHAT A GREAT WAY TO KIND SUPPLEMENT THINGS OR GO FOR FREE POSSIBLY. YOU MENTIONED GIFT CARDS. WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT THOSE TO USE FOR THE THEATER? SO I THINK IT’S A GREAT IDEA TO USE YOUR BUDGET DOLLARS TO BUY SOME GIFT CARDS. THERE ARE SOME PLACES WHERE YOU CAN BUY THEM FOR UNDER FACE VALUE WHICH IS FANTASTIC. THE WAREHOUSE RETAILERS LIKE SAM’S CLUB OR COSTCO ARE A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO GO BUY GIFT CARDS BEFORE YOU GO TO THE MOVIES IN ORDER TO HELP, YOU KNOW, KIND OF CUT DOWN ON THAT COSTS OR YOU COULD USE SOMEWHERE LIKE KROGER WHERE YOU GET FUEL REWARD BACK WHEN YOU BUY GIFT CARDS AT LEAST ARE GOING TO SAVE MONEY ON GAS AND OTHER AREAS WHO DO DOUBLE DUTY THERE TO SAVE SOME EXTRA DOLLARS. I KNOW WHEN I GO TO THE THEATER I USUALLY SPEND MORE MONEY ON THE SNACKS AND THE DRINKS THAN I DO ON THE ACTUAL MOVIE TICKETS. HOW CAN WE MAYBE STRETCH THE SNACKS A LITTLE? OR SHOULD WE JUST TRY TO AVOID THEM ALTOGETHER? SO YOU CAN’T EAT BEFORE YOU GO AND SKIP THEM? THAT’S NOT A BAD IDEA. YOU DON’T HAVE TO HIDE ANYTHING IN YOUR COAT WHEN YOU GO AND ONE EASY WAY THAT YOU CAN KIND STRETCH THINGS A LITTLE BIT FURTHER IS TO SHARE. AND SO IF YOU BRING AND MAYBE A PAPER BAG OR A PLASTIC BAG AND YOU BUY THE LARGER POPCORN THEN YOU CAN SPLIT IT AMONG YOU AND WHOEVER ELSE IS COMING WITH YOU TO STRETCH IT A LITTLE BIT FURTHER. LOTS OF PLACES ALSO OFFER A LITTLE PLASTIC TRAY THAT YOU CAN USE TO SPLIT THINGS UP TOO. AND MOST THEATERS ARE NOW OFFERING WATER BELIEVE IT OR NOT. SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY THE BIG YEAH THE BIG WATER BOTTLE. IT’S PROBABLY GONNA BE A SMALL CUP BUT IT’S STILL BETTER NOT IT’S FREE AND IT’S FREE. EXACTLY. BUT SOME FLY. SHERRI, THANK YOU SO MUCH. DON’T SNEAK SNACKS AT THE BOTTOM LINE HERE. ALL RIGHT.
