I had a giggle over this, and just had to share!
So I bought one, and my friend Kelley bought one too. Great, $6 for a $9.50 evening show, not bad. I was excited to see it at my local Regal/United Artists theatre, because on Tuesdays they have $2 small popcorn, and I luv me some movie theater popcorn.
If you’ve never purchased tickets through Fandango before, it’s super easy – you select your theater, date and showtime, fill in any promotional code, and your ticket prints for that specific showtime. Not a problem, and I called Kelley to let her know the process.
What I didn’t realize is that Tuesday nights are also that particular theater’s $5 movie night! Yes, I could have seen the movie for just $5, and I thought I was so cool for scoring a $6 movie ticket. Of course if we had gone on any other night, or to any other theater, it would have been a great deal.
And would you believe, I actually found myself contemplating if I should go on another night so it would feel like I was saving more money! Lordy, sometimes I shouldn’t think so much, it just hurts.
So for my fellow penny pinchers, have you ever, totally by accident, spent more than you intended? I don’t mean “whoops I went to Target for toilet paper and $150 later…”! I mean you had the best of intentions, minus one little detail like I described?! Please comment and share!
