Angie’s List – Free Local Reviews, Discounted Movie Tickets

Angie’s List is a site that contains reviews of local housing contractors, as well as other services like auto mechanics and accountants. Looks like most larger metro areas are covered. It’s usually $6 a month to get access, but right now it you can get 1 year of membership for free for many (but not all) locations. Worth a shot. I just joined for free with no credit card needed. A similar site that’s already free is Judy’s Book.

Besides the reviews, several contractors also give out members-only discounts. Depending on your area, another perk is discounted movie tickets (look under ‘Tickets and Perks’). I was offered $6.50 tickets to all Regal/United Artists theaters. Not bad, although I wonder if they are restricted in any way. Heck, just sign up for cheap movie tickets.

  1. A site I personally like a lot more is Yelp, though it may not be available in many area.

  2. Not Free For Me says

    MMB ,

    when i try to signup it asks me for $$$$

    Whats the link u used to signup.

    thx
    want for free

  3. this is very interesting, though, this kind of grassroot “craigslist” movement is getting better and better, majority of the people still order services through word of mouth and referrals. I’m going to try it.

  4. I have to pay in the Chicago area……now why would i pay when i havent even heard of this site….doesnt seem worthwhile at this point

  5. Like I said, it’s not free for all areas. I’m guessing they are giving free access to the newer areas in order to build their member base.

  6. … you can buy discounted movie tickets yourself on the movie theater’s website… cept you have to pay shipping, or you can buy them at costco for a bit more, but $6.50 sounds marked up already unless it’s the premiere ones… and if you have triple A, you can buy from them as well with dirt cheap shipping.
