[Cineplex] Famous/Cineplex Mystery Shopper.

goto the movies a lot??
buy from the concessions a lot??
won't mind doing an evaluation??

then this will be a hot deal for you!!

Famous/Cineplex Mystery Shopper.
It only costs $53.50(tax included) to become a member.
you get:
8 passes.
4 $10 concessions coupons
4 evaluation forms.

how it works is that 4 times a yr famous(cineplex) will send you 2 passes and a $10 concessions coupon, and evaluation to fill out. What you evaluate is the theater you goto. In their FAQ, they say most likely you can goto any theater you want, and any movie you want.

here's the link.

I looked it over, and it reminds me, irritatingly, of the customer service surveys that FS, Home Depot, and Burger King get their customers to fill out, to see if they 'win' a draw, [when they do the on-line survey.] It is VERY cheap mystery shopping personnel for them, and it reeks of cheapness, IMO. Companies like that should be paying real people who go through some kind of an interview process, and not just hiring any old joe blow who wants to fill out a survey. Can you guys just imagine the quality of the surveys they will get? It would be fun to read some of them, I'm sure! :cheesygri

On the other hand - good post - thanks for sharing the info. with us. Some RFD'ers will wish to take part in this; a discount for something they want to do, anyway? Why not?

I was just expressing my irritation at the companies who are seemingly too cheap to hire real mystery shoppers.

It is a hot deal in the sense that you get a near 150 dollar value for 54 dollars. The irritating part is the survey, but I could just BS it anyways haha screw over Ciniplex a bit.

Hey, your all thinking it the wrong way. Look at the advantages,
8 passes.
4 $10 concessions coupons

All for only $53.50 BIG PLUS they say most likely you can goto any theater you want, and any movie you want.

ANY MOVIE YOU WANT. There's not like anybody is going to stop you.
If you could see, this is a good deal! Like how much would it be if you paid without this deal? Probably more than $100 plus including the 4 $10 concessions coupons.

All they ask for return is your input for this great deal.

I just tried to sign up for this. You are asked to select first theatre of choice and second theatre of choice, but there are no theatres listed in Alberta (one in red deer).

other mystery shopper programs pay only like $10-15 per evaluation, thats all and its much harder than watching a movie and buying stuff from the concession stand.

actually I retract my previous comment.

if you look at it like work, then yes, the deal is lame...

but if you're looking at it as a deal to see a movie at a discounted rate, then its a pretty good deal - normally 8 movie tickets would cost over $80, plus the $40 in food - so if its something you'd already spend your money on, its a good deal

PLUS - filling out a survey about the theatre's service isn't that big a deal, and you guys have all got to admit - we've all probably done more to save a few bucks!! This is RFD after all!!

naw, they'd probably send you the admit ones or Platinum passes which are good for the no passes movies

This is pretty dumb. You can always just buy some of the other tickets to use inbetween these.

the other threads handing out movie tickets are roughly the same price - concessions

[rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=185]HBC[/rfdlink] had tickets + concession coupons as well + more coupons/gift certificates + NO forms to fill out. stock up when [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=185]HBC[/rfdlink] has sales
