  • Dude, stop wasting your money on movie ticket booking
    fees.
  • Facebook lets you book movie tickets without fees
    through its app.
  • It’s technically a short-term promotion — but it’s been
    going for months, and there’s no sign it’ll end any time
    soon.

Planning to go to the cinema this week?Well here’s a nifty trick
to save you a few bucks: You can use Facebook to get cheap movie
tickets without any booking fees.

The social network is currently running a promotion in which it
will pay customers’ fees for movie tickets that are bought via
its mobile app, in partnership with Fandango and Atom Tickets.
It’s generally only a few bucks each time — but for frequent
cinema-goers, it can add up.


The offer kicked off back in March 2018
, and is still ongoing
four months later — though Facebook cautions that “this offer may
be terminated at any time without any prior notice at Facebook’s
discretion.”

So how does it work? In the Facebook app, click on the menu
button — the three horizontal lines — at the top right of the
app. This will bring up a list of Facebook features. From there,
scroll down to the “See More” option, click it, then click on
“Films.”

If you don’t see See Also when you click the Menu
button, scroll down. After clicking it, you’ll see the button for
the Films section, as shown on the right.

This takes you to Facebook’s dedicated Films hub, which
highlights movies currently in cinemas and theatres in your area.

Select the film you want to see, then pick a cinema and showtime,
and it’ll prompt you to book a ticket — without any fees tacked
on.

Yeah, movies.

And that’s really all there is to it. The offer is only available
to Facebook users in the US, so bad luck to Brits and other
international users.
