AMC Stubs Update

First, and possibly most importantly, Sunday is free popcorn day at AMC theaters. And they're going all out: You get a large! Very exciting stuff.

Second, they're updating their Stubs rewards program. I never liked a program where you had to pay to join, but the discounts were worth it. Now, there's a free version and a paid version. If you had been in the previous program, they'll automatically move you to the paid version of this one. Here's how the chart breaks out. The biggest benefits to the paid program are the waived ticketing fees, 10% rewards (versus 2% in the free program) and free popcorn/soda upgrades.

My Coke Rewards: 30 Points

Well, this is kind of cool: Get 30 points from MCR from adding your card to your virtual wallet. For the tech incompetents such as myself, the news is good. It walks you through the 30-second process.

Recyclebank Metal Matters: 180 Points

Earn 180 points from Recyclebank with the metal matters page.

On the plus side, I've now leveled my trainer in Pokemon Go to 12. But I'm not addicted.

Disney Movie Rewards: Five Points (and then some)

DMR doesn't give fee point codes often, so take advantage of the five points for code: PRISCILLA. Also, make sure that you didn't miss your monthly points earlier this week.

Disney Movie Rewards: Five Points

Enter code "disneysnaps" at DMR for five points.

Over the past two nights, I've seen both "The Secret Life of Pets" and "Ghostbusters." Both were better than expectations, although my hopes for the latter weren't particularly high.

New Kellogg's Family Rewards rewards

And we're back!

Just got an email from KFR notifying me that there are new rewards available, which is nice, since I didn't care for any of the old rewards.

There are a whopping 11 of them. Hmm, not so much. Frequent flyers will be delighted to see that one of the prizes is a Delta Vacations gift card, a very reasonable reward, giving you $100 toward DV for 5,000 points. The downside is that you then need to book a Delta Vacations package.

Home Depot: Free Kids Workshop

I always mean to mention these and never get around to it but, if you have kids, both Home Depot and Lowe's run workshops to help the little critters learn to make things. This week is a cool Ice Age Bowling Game which, of course the kids get to keep. Oh, good, just what I need: more stuff.

You can read about Home Depot's extravaganza here.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: Shutterfly Code

Every once in a while, KFR throws out a Shutterfly code. this one will get you an 8X8 photo book. It says you should use it to relive your best summer memories but, since summer hasn't started yet, I'm guessing they'd be okay if you used it for something else.

No idea if it's one use only or good for everyone.

You'll still have to pay S&H, but it's a pretty good deal, regardless.

Code: KEA2-0919-HJC8-HT0UP4

My Coke Rewards Updates

Apparently, MCR yas made some changes to the program. There doesn't look like anything dangerous in the changes, but I'll take a peek. I like the fact that they got rid of status.

Interesting that, of my six accounts, only one got the 15 point bonus. Coincidentally (or perhaps, not coincidentally), that account was the one with Gold status.
