    Meerkat Movies 25th Mar 15 at 7:05 AM
    MoneySavingExpert Insert May 16:

    Hi everyone, it's well worth reading our fully researched Meerkat Movies trick blog for the full lowdown on this.

    Thanks to lamp for posting! Back to the original post...

    ----

    Good morning all!

    I enjoyed my first usage of the Meerkat Movies code last night at the cinema.

    There has been some somewhat conservative comments regarding selecting of insurance to use this offer. I just thought I'd share how I got my policy...

    You are eligible for Meerkat Movies with single travel insurance policies, so I purchased a short trip one to Europe, and for under £5, I have 12 months of Meerkat Movies. Bargain.

    I don't know how long that will last before the threshold is raised though.

    Best of luck!

    Lou

    Hi

    Are you saying that Compare the Market is stopping the Meerkat Movie Promotion tomorrow? Can't find this mentioned anywhere else.

    Sorry, if I've completely misunderstood this

    Thanks

    Maybe "Hasbeen" could post a link when he gets back on.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    *Rewards: 2for1 cinema tickets on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at participating cinemas for 12 months from date of purchase, one membership per 12 months. Qualifying Purchases only. For new Meerkat Movies members it can take up to 48 hours to validate your details and you may not be able to activate your membership on the day of purchase. Meerkat toys available to claim on subsequent Qualifying Purchases made within 12 months of your initial purchase. Terms and conditions apply

    † Limited Edition Meerkat Movies Frozen Toy and Meerkat Movies Membership available on qualifying purchases made and claimed between 22 December 2016 and 3 March 2017. 2 for 1 Cinema Tickets available on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at participating cinemas for 12 months from date of purchase.

    I assume that means the limited edition frozen toy ends today and not meerkat movies itself.

    Hi. I ordered a policy 5 days ago but it's still not activated my account so I can get a code. Would anyone have one for today? More than happy to repay the favour when mines working.

    Is there any way to avoid the 70p fee?

    Coud I pre-book in their cinemas directly with the Meetkat code, or do they still charge the fee? lol

    Just get the tickets for the film when you go down 20 mins before its due to start.

    Dont know if you can pre book in the cinema eg go in at 2pm and pre book tickets for a 7pm showing.

    Or just prebook on the website, its 70p.

    This weeks code is for tuesday or wednesday of this week only so essentially its 1 code to be used for that week or the tuesday or wednesday.

    Not sure to be honest, give it a try, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Hello it's my birthday today, I've just been to cinema and used this weeks code from buying travel insurance last week. However i was trying to find the thread to see if anyone had a code they weren't using themselves that they would be happy for me to use tomorrow afternoon. Watched Get Out this evening, but promised hubby we would watch Logan tomorrow.

    Sweet!

    Just took travel insurance out for a measly £1.11 and signed up to Meerkat 2for1.
    Activated immediately. On my way to the cinema right now to book Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for next week.

    Truly wonderful.

    Can anyone else beat £1.11 ??

    If anybody is close to Odeon Westerhailes Edinburgh, tickets there are generally £5.50 for both adults and kids. Parking is ample, free and cinema is usually relatively quiet compared to others in Edinburgh.


    It also has a Home Bargains right next door for cheap cinema pop and sweeties.

    So two tickets for £5.50 using a meerkat is just outstanding. Perhaps not quite as swanky as others but at that price you cant complain.
