AMC Stubs (#AMCStubs) Challenge Week 2
by Wilson Morales

April 29, 2011

Talk about a challenge! I never thought that I would see this many films in a week, let alone in different theaters and in different states. It’s one thing if you stay at one theater and go from one screening room to another, but it’s another when you have to travel and rely on luck when trying to make the next showing within a certain time.

With my competitors and fellow movie “bloggers” (Mike Eisenberg of Screenrant, myself, and Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub of Collider) located in other states, we each have to travel to areas we’ve never gone to in order to rack up points in our AMC Search For Stubs contest.

Going to different theaters has certainly been an experience and a reward. Bringing friends to the movies where I cover the tab has made me the mayor in some circles!

With a week to go and most of the nearby theaters covered already, the challenge is to travel elsewhere and hope the the film I want to see isn’t sold out.

While the weight falls on me to travel and see loads of films, there’s a way you can help me get over the threshold.

With this promotion about the new AMC Stubs Card, if you have the card, you can vote for me. The one with the most votes get a huge number of points and it will definitely help one of us win a 5-Year Movie Pass to AMC Theatres!.

Here’s what you need to know about the Stubs programs at AMC: if you live near an AMC theater you want to get the card. What it does is collect every dollar you spend (either on concessions or tickets) and when you’ve spent $100, you get $10 in rewards back. It’s basically like a 10% off card. In addition, you get free upgrades. So if you buy a small drink, with the card, they give you a medium. Same for popcorn.

Also, if you’re someone that likes buying tickets online, if you use a Stubs card, you don’t pay online ticketing fees at either MovieTickets.com or Fandango.

Over the next two weeks, I’ll post a few updates about how things have been going on Blackfilm.com. But for more real time updates, follow me on Twitter and #AMCStubs.

To follow up on how I’m doing in the contest, you can check for up-to-date results on Facebook.

Here’s the form to fill in.  You have to have a Stubs Card.  The card costs $12, but that money is applied to the $100 you need for a reward. This is a good bargain if you are an avid moviegoer like myself.

If you have any questions about the Stubs program, here’s the contact info:  AMC Theatres Customer Service  customerservice@amcstubs.com (888-562-4262)
