  • Thursday January 26, Friday January 27, and Saturday January 28 at 6 pm and 8 pm

Cinema at KiMo Theatre Flex Pass 50% Off

Comments Off on Cinema at KiMo Theatre Flex Pass 50% Off

Get a half price pass to cinema at the KiMo Theatre, quantities are limited.

If you like watching cinema at the KiMo (and why wouldn’t you?) you might be interested in this deal to get a discount KiMo Theatre Flex Pass at 50% off. The pass to ten shows is valued at $150, but it’s currently up for grabs at $75, thanks to Good Day New Mexico’s Half Price Thursday. The pass offer also includes one free popcorn per event.

Quantities are limited, so get snappy if you want one. You have to pay $6.25 in shipping and handling for the pass to be mailed to you in 7-10 days. That fee seems a bit steep to me, but the overall deal is so good it’s worth it anyway!

The half price KiMo Theatre Flex Pass gives admission to ten shows of your choice, of Opera in Cinema, Ballet in Cinema, and Royal Theatre of Great Britain in Cinema, and it’s valid for use until September 1, 2012.

(The KiMo Theatre email we received about this deal also mentioned Concerts in Cinema and other films at the KiMo being part of the deal, but that isn’t mentioned on the deal page. So it may be a perk, it may not.)

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW.

Comments Off on $1 for Three Redbox DVD Rentals

Pay $1 for 3 Redbox movie rentals. Quantities are limited so act fast if you’re interested.

The deal is for 3 one-night DVD rentals from Redbox for $1 – three movies would usually cost $3 so you’re basically getting two rentals free. You get three rental codes and can use them at Redbox machines nationwide until June 1, 2011. The offer is only for DVD rentals, it’s not valid for video games or Blu-ray rentals.

To get the $1 Redbox DVD offer, click on the offer box at the top of the Groupon page at the link.  This is bound to be a very popular deal to coincide with Oscars weekend! Quantities are limited, available as long as supplies last until Tuesday March 1.

There’s a limit of one deal per person, although you can also buy two as gifts.  You’ll still have to swipe your credit card when redeeming the codes, in case you keep the movie out for more than one night (return time is by 9 pm next day) – so make sure you return the DVD on time to get maximum bargain value!

FYI – I’ve given you my Groupon affiliate link. If you plan to take advantage of this deal and feel like sending a little love this way to help support ABQ on the Cheap, please use the links. Thanks!
