If you buy movie tickets online there is a way to get around paying the service fee, which can run $1 and up per ticket. This method works for AMC theaters only, but I wonder if other movie chains have similar programs that include this benefit.
Here’s how it works. Join AMC’s free MovieWatcher program. When you are ready to buy tickets, log in to your MovieWatcher account. Start your movie search at MovieWatcher and remember to manually enter your membership number on the purchase page.
Hubby did this when we saw Coraline in 3-D (which I recommend) and he said it “was worth about $2 worth of hassle.”
