If there’s a Visa Signature credit card in your wallet, here’s a way to save money on movies. Through Friday, August 21, cardholders can get 2-for-1 movie tickets from Fandango (up to $19.50, including Fandango’s convenience fee) every Friday. The offer is only valid for the same showing on each respective Friday with no advance purchases allowed. If you have a Chase Visa Signature Card, you can buy your tickets for Friday starting on Wednesday.

If previous years are any indication, the limited number of weekly tickets sells out quickly (especially during the summer months) – so plan ahead. Finally, there’s a limit of one FREE ticket per 30-day period, per credit card. Remember, you must use a Visa Signature credit card to make your purchase.

SelmaBy Bryan Chavez

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the historic Selma march, Selma returns to theaters for a limited engagement starting Friday, March 20. Through March 26, participating movie theaters, including Regal Cinemas and AMC Theatres, are offering a buy-one-get-one FREE ticket to see the film. The offer is only valid at the box office of participating theaters. The Oscar-nominated film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.
