What did you get two weeks ago?
Just an email saying that there's a delay
Oh, I see.
At the two week mark I got an e-mail saying my card should be here in 5-7 days and exactly a week later it showed up.
I would at least attempt to contact them if I were you.
Damn, I haven't even gotten an email yet and my three weeks is coming up here in a couple of days.
Do they auto-renew every month or do you have to do it manually through their website?
Honestly, after the 3 week point I figured there was probably a good chance I was never going to get it and so kinda resigned myself to that. Seeing the shipping notification email has me excited and feeling like I just ordered the card lol.
Damn, a week after? I was hoping to get it by this weekend. Then again I guess it's pretty naive to expect something to arrive sooner than the suggested 5-7 days from a company that's already had me waiting a month lol.
Finally arrived today! Took 35 days to arrive. Gonna try it out later
FYI to those waiting... it came in a weird, nondescript looking envelope that doesn't say MoviePass on it anywhere. I almost threw it away thinking it was junk mail
Nice! Well that should give everyone else hope that their card WILL eventually show up.
Well the good news is that once you DO finally have it in hand, you'll find that all the bullshit was worth it.
Just talked a friend into getting this today. She goes to the movies quite a bit, like ALOT actually, and her friends used one while she was with her the other day. Said it was super smooth and everything went well.
What a cool idea, they just need some marketing behind it (if they are even making any money).
Need some marketing behind it? They are already way behind in card production because their membership has grown by more than 2300% in the past couple of months.
Yeah, once they figure out production and communications that is.
I just mean that not alot of people know about this. Seems like a hidden gem, something too good to be true.
I think more and more people are learning about it. I've seen a lot of articles online talking about the service.
And yes, it does seem too good to be true. I'm definitely skeptical that it's going to last, at least at this price point. But we'll see.
I agree on the "will it last" thing.
I was describing this to co workers, they were instantly like "This is too good to be true" and "how do they even make money", and I told them that this is basically like Netflix or a gym membership.
People sign up to the gym with great intentions, then just don't go and keep paying. People (like myself) sign up for Netflix only to watch like 10-15 shows, but we binge those shows the first week they are released, and end up paying for a year but using it for about 3-4 weeks out of 52.
I mean, $10 is a REALLY sweet price point. One that people will let slide for months without remembering they are spending money on something they aren't using.
I REALLY wish this was around when the wife and I started dating. We would hardcore see movies with each of us having a pass.
Yeah, they also plan to make money by using our data as well.
$10 is definitely a great price point. I suspect I'm going to switch from going to about one movie a month to going to one a week. I mean, all I have to do is go up there and swipe my card and get a ticket, why not?
Seems like a great idea. You get a lil more money than the average ticket ? and the chance to sell that person something everytime they walk in the door. Maybe they only would have seen one movie this month but now saw 3 and bought a pop and popcorn every time. Perhaps a couple or a family does this every week now .....
Imagine the money your movie theater would make if every ticket sold brought back 5 lg pops and popcorns is ripping people at the concessions not how they make there profits?
i have 3 fucking kids and a wife.
i cant imagine trying to commit to 2 hours of movie (not counting the drive) every single day. that would turn into every other day. over under on how many you actually would go to on a month is 10.
and yes i realize it pays for itself after one time. theres just no way anyone would go to one a day.
One movie a day is the max you can go to, not some kind of expectation. In order for MoviePass to be worth it, you only have to go to more than one movie a month.
i said that
Where? I see you saying something about going every single day and something about going 10 times a month.
