Since we are coming up on the first weekend of the month, I wanted to offer a reminder about three credit card perks you can put to use over the next three days to earn points and save money!

Buy One Get One Free Movie Tickets with Visa Signature and Fandango:

Free movieJust as they have done in previous summers, Fandango and Visa Signature have teamed up to offer cardholders a free movie ticket worth up to $19.50 on Fridays when you buy two or more tickets via Fandango.  This offer is valid from April 24th to August 21st.  This year Chase Visa Signature cardholders get extra time by being able to purchase tickets on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays for a Friday showing (great when the show you want may sell out by Friday).   Other Visa Signature cardholders can only purchase on Fridays for Friday shows.

There is a limit of one free movie ticket per 30 days per card, but I’m betting lots of you have way more than one Visa Signature card.  There is also a stipulation of a maximum of one ticket per registered email address per 7 day period regardless of the number of Visa Signature cards.  Sorry to those from other countries, but this offer is said to be for US issued Visa cards only.


Get Into Museums and More Free with Bank of America Cards:

The first weekend of each month (like this weekend) your Bank of America issued debit and credit cards can get you into 150 various museums, botanical gardens, zoos, and aquariums in 32 states via their “Museums on Us” program.  Examples of participating museums include: Children’s Museum of Manhattan, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, Anchorage Museum, Houston Zoo, Denver Zoo, and the Newseum in Washington DC.

Each cardholder gets one free general admission ticket, so make sure you and your partner each bring your own debit or credit card.  Free admission is valid on Saturday and Sunday at most locations, but check the map linked above to be 100% sure.

Earn 3x Points on Dining with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card for First Friday:

The first Friday of each month the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card earns 50% more points on dining (3x instead of 2x), so your Friday lunches out, happy hours, dinners, etc. result in a few more Ultimate Reward points.

Chase Sapphire Preferred First Friday

Hope you all have a great summertime weekend!

  1. Thank you soo much for the reminder!!! We NEVER go to the movies, yet the family wants to go see the Entourage movie tonight. And at a theater we don’t have a gift card for! This is PERFECT timing! 😀

    • Awesome! That is the sort of perk that is so easy to forget so happy to post the reminder. I used to love Entourage – hope the move is good!

  2. Yep!
    Just made use of the Chase Sapphire Preferred first Friday of the month bonus tonight.

    As an added bonus, attaching any of these above credit cards to programs such as AA rewards network or rapid rewards dining network, your first Friday dining experience also gets you extra American Airlines or Southwest Airlines miles.
