Fandango Movie Ticket Discounts: 2-for-1 Fridays + 20% Off Gift Cards

fanplus1Only six Fridays left! Fandango has brought back their Visa Signature summer promotion from April 25th to August 8th. 2-for-1 movie tickets on Fridays! You can also get 20% off Fandango gift cards which can be used any day of the week and can be instantly redeemable online.

2-For-1 Movie Fridays. If you buy two or more tickets via on a Friday, one of those tickets will be free at checkout (up to $19.50 value). Works with IMAX and other premium theaters. This should also work with the Fandango Mobile App “TIXPRESS” feature if you have a Visa Signature as the stored payment. No promo code required.

Tickets must be purchased on a Friday and used on a Friday showing. Limit 1 complimentary movie ticket per Visa Signature card purchase, per 30 day period, following the date of a purchase in connection with this offer.

Note that this means if you have more than one Visa Signature card, you can participate more often. Check your credit cards, you may be surprised to have one already, especially if you’ve gone after some of the juicy $500+ sign-up bonuses recently. The following are all Visa Signature cards:

20% off Fandango Gift Cards. You also get 20% off gift cards bought in $25 increments, which is basically $5 off $25 and valid any day of the week.

Limit four (4) discounted Fandango Gift Card purchases per Visa Signature card per month (maximum of $100 in Fandango Gift Cards).

Again, this is per Visa Signature card. The service fee can be annoying, but these promotions still make it a net discount. If you are a member of AMC Stubs, you can get the Fandango service fee waived at those theaters (membership costs $12 a year). I must say that being able to buy tickets from my phone is quite nice.

I’m not sure if these stack with other promotional codes, but their fine print says that they can’t be combined with other offers.


  1. I made use of this last year and it was fantastic. Thanks for the reminder. What a great time of year for a BOGO movie deal!

  2. Evan, did you pay $12 membership fee?

  3. I did not, just paid the fees. I need to run the numbers and see if it’s worth the $12. I generally use the deal a few times but not sure if I use it enough for the fees to outweigh the membership fee.

  4. Never jumped on these movie promos because they seemed too much of a hassle for an infrequent movie-goer, but this one sounds simple enough. Would I need to create four separate Fandango accounts to make use of four Visa signature cards? Or can I switch between the cards within the mobile app?

    • I haven’t tried using it multiple times in 30 days, but the terms seems to suggest per Visa Signature card, not per account. The validation page just asks for the credit card number.

  5. The Chase Freedom card is also a Visa Signature. Tons of folks have this one, too.
