MoviePass Users: You Can Now Give Up To 3 Friends A Free Month

The Offer

  • MoviePass is now allowing users to refer up to three friends, each friend will get one month for free.

The Fine Print

  • You can refer a maximum of 3 friends

Our Verdict

You don’t get anything from referring friends, but they get a free month. For those not familiar MoviePass is a subscription service that lets you see a movie every day at any standard screen (you can’t see the same movie twice any longer). Normally the service costs $9.99 per month, but discounts sometimes bring it down to as low as $7.5 per month. Competitor Sinemia is similar except they have multiple different plans and some include premium screenings. Feel free to give away referrals in the comments.

My area theatres won’t accept it. Be careful to check first before signing up.

While I don’t think this is bad advice, this article is about referring friends for a free month. If a friend refers you who lives near you, it’s likely nearby theaters do accept Moviepass, or else your friend not only is paying for something they don’t use, but they’re now encouraging you to use the same service, with no incentive to deceive you. And even if nearby theaters don’t accept Moviepass, it’s a free trial.

What i’m trying to say is: your advice is sound, but making your comment in this context is perplexing.

A lot of people like to jump head first into deals especially if there is a freebie, so that might be why that comment was made in that context. I mean it is a fair warning and I don’t see it being harmful. Also people might be forwarding this referral offer to friends/family across the country.. and I can’t even find a working link on their site anymore to search for which theater’s take it. It seems you have to download the app in order to check.

@John – I get what you’re saying and appreciate that you thought to look out for people. This was definitely something I checked. Always kind of a bummer to find out you can’t use something that sounded so good.

Regarding searching for participating theaters, from the MoviePass website without the app: “For those who do not have access to the app, visit our website, moviepass.com, for a list of supported theaters! Scroll toward the bottom of our homepage and enter your zip code to search the map. A list of supported theaters will populate on the right-hand side.”

Thank you for the clarification; I don’t know why I couldn’t find the theatre checker the first time but I see it now right in the middle of the page.

I didn’t know many places – aside from specialty theaters – that didn’t take it. More out of curiosity, are you in a really rural area or something?

Meaning the theater refuses? They are in violation of their contract with MasterCard if they try to deny it.

I’d be really careful before buying a full year. Their stock is getting hammered and I wouldn’t be surprised if they go bust before you get much value.

Anyone want to refer me?

Relevant question here is how much longer “movie pass” will stay in business. It’s parent company, Helios & Matheson, has been in free-fall on wall street. Now burning through cash faster per month than they have on hand….

I’m all for turnaround plays…. (like Sears this past week after inking tire deal with … Amazon) but “movie pass” has to find new backers — even w/ its core model much in doubt.

They are about the cambridge analytica everyone’s asses, so want to get as much data before they declare bankruptcy.

+1 — precisely why I’ve long developed a habit of responding to any and all “member” surveys (like at Sears) with as much contradictory nonsense as I can muster (on those rare moments when I’m unable or too dumb to avoid ’em)….

Mark might have been talking about Moviepass rather than Sears. They collect background information on your location and who knows what else.. Google ‘moviepass collect information’ for more sources.

Just FYI for everyone- that’s how they can keep the service afloat(you are the product) even though it doesn’t seem to be working that well.

I think I’ve filled out the same Kmart toys survey 3x now lol. $25 in points, then $10 in freecash, now another $10… lol

Their stock was valued at about $2/share for a long period of time, until September 2017. By October, it was $30/share. Now, it’s $0.70/share. Excuse me if I don’t take cues about how things should work from Wall Street lol.

They knew they were going to lose money on this in the near term. And they have financing lined up. They’ve taken measures to improve the service and app and make it more fair (i.e. you get to see movies one time only which was always in the terms and conditions….)

I don’t think they’ll fail yet. And they might not fail at all. They can probably create a market model out of this by driving attention to lower budget films and guaranteeing an audience share. It’s like an insurance plan for theatrical movies. Has value.

Probably best to get on this offer soon before the gravy train runs dry. Seems like there is a real chance the company can fold in a month or two.

All those planning to use the free trial and cancel it – keep in mind that you can’t sign up for 9 months after that.
