Netflix Co-Founder’s Crazy Plan: Pay $10 a Month, Go to the Movies All You Want
My son has a woody for this card. Could save him ton$. Expect him to go for it soon and I will report back.
Yeah, let us know.
I'm thinking about it too. I would guess we spend about $200/month on movies. I wonder if I can get in the 21 and over theater with this card? Unless the kids are going we always go there.
Card ordered. This could be interesting. Can you OD on popcorn?
MoviePass - Terms and Conditions
Movie pass changes terms and conditions quietly to include right to cancel your pass for any reason, including if you're using it too much. See 2.4
Cute. I'm using mine without difficulty so far...
been very nice around chez carl
Saw this coming from a mile away. I'm not sure how long existing pass holders will be grandfathered but I assume not permanently. It still might be a great deal but there's a huge psychological difference between unlimited and 4.
Even 4 per month for $10 is still a great bargain.
Agree, but people raise holy hell every time a service increases their price or tries to manage the service so that it doesn't completely go under. Netflix, Amazon Prime, cell carriers, multiple backup services, etc. all had to drop unlimited or change the model at some point in time and all faced public backlash. Some are fine by nature of the fact that the service is still worth it, others are fine because they are oligopolies. Some have gone under.
I am now taking pics of my tickets and MoviePass is getting to check 'em out. MP is also keeping a record of movies seen and refusing requests to see a particular movie a second time. I use it often enough to make the deal worthwhile at 4x a month.
BTW, the local AMC is now an AMC Classic with more "bargains". We will see.
Sounds like a business model for certain bankruptcy to me.
Looks like make it up on volume don’t quite cut it.
They aren't making the money on the subscription fee (although there will be people who miss a month and that's all profit). They are raping the shit out of your data and mark my words people will still be pissed when they finally figure it out.
There are two problems going on. 1) Movie pass continues to be a worse and worse deal and 2) they are changing their terms so rapidly that they are actively pissing people off. Now you can't see certain popular movies more than once. Even if you want to burn all 4 of our monthly allocation (or 30 if you're grandfathered) seeing Infinity War over and over... you can't. This marks I think the third terms change in less than month with this last one being very opaque and poorly communicated to customers.
Use your pass while you can, I'd set the over under at 4 months before they're done.
OH MY GOD. Its like whiplash. They have no fucking clue what they're doing.
MoviePass Goes Back to Offering Movie-A-Day Monthly Plan
Oh, Like the 2014 movie? Cruel. controlling. Verbally abusive. Driven.
Or tying hard to DRUM up business/interest?
Or like the Prez's lawyer choices... but more useful.
