AMC-theaters-discount-couponThis is an excellent buy if you like to go out to the movies: four AMC movie tickets for $27, including shipping.

The deal is offered by Buy With Me, a daily deal site that says it is coming to Orlando soon. This deal is good anywhere in the United States except Alaska and Hawaii.

The AMC Silver Experience tickets can be used at any AMC, AMC Showplace, Loews, Cineplex Odeon, Magic Johnson or Star theatre.

Unless it sells out early, you have until 11:59 p.m. Aug. 30, to get the deal – though it did sell early last time Buy With Me offered an AMC deal.

There are some restrictions on these tickets, so read the fine print. For example, they are good only for movies that have been out at least two weeks.

And if you’re going to the movies, don’t forget to get the coupon for 50% off on popcorn and a drink.

Buy With Me is an advertising partner of On the Cheap.
