Attend Free Movie Screenings

Attend Free Movie Screenings

Last night my husband and I attended a free screening of Delivery Man, a hilarious new movie that will be in theatres November 22. We aren’t rich or famous and we don’t know the right people, so how did we snag tickets to a movie that isn’t even out yet? We just signed up with a few websites.

Want all the details, so you can do it too? Here they are: Movie studios sometimes set up advanced screenings of their new movies to build hype. These screenings usually occur in major cities (but not always). Then, they give the tickets away. Some of them go to newspaper journalists and other media types, so they can review the movie, but a good number of them go to regular moviegoers like you and me. They’re posted on one of a handful of websites, and if you’re signed up with these sites, you get a notification whenever tickets are available.

Earlier this week, I received an e-mail that there were tickets available to a screening of Delivery Man in my area. I clicked over to the site; signed in; and quickly snagged two. Then, I printed my ticket, and called the grandparents to babysit. Easy enough.

Our ticket said to show up early, since they often overbook, so we arrived at 6:30 for a 7:00 showing. They had a table set up for the screening, and quickly marked us off a list. No standing in a ticket line or forking over an obscene sum for tickets. The theatre was pretty packed, so I was glad we took their advice about arriving early.

The movie was piped in via satellite (kinda cool), and before it started, Vince Vaughn and Chris Pratt did a live introduction of the movie (very cool). Then, it was just like any other night at the movies.

So what are the websites already? To increase your chances of getting tickets, I recommend signing up for all of these:


Shopping for Free

Shopping for Free

I spent 15 minutes clipping and printing coupons before I went to the store, and I was able to get everything that you see in the picture for free. That’s:

  • Olive oil
  • (2) tubes of toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • (3) Deodorants
  • Peanut butter crackers
  • Toilet paper
  • A ream of paper

I consider that a pretty good return for 15 minutes of work, don’t you?

Take a look at what else I’ve gotten free this year. Then, get busy clipping and printing those coupons.
