AMC is awful

Not stubs related, but I feel that AMC in general is a total rip-off. On line ticket purchase with attendant convenience fee in particular. At our theater, you still have to wait in line to get a ticket. It was much better when they were Starplex; No fee, print ticket at kiosk or show receipt to the ticket taker, i.e. No waiting in line.
Wang sure screwed the Americans good.
  • Free popcorn and drink upgrade to next size (ICEEs not included)
  • For every $100 you spend you get $10 non-cash reward (expires after 90 days)
  • No online ticketing fee
  • You get an online gallery that records your movie stubs so you can rate, comment, and share to your social networks
  • If you sign up at your local theatre you get four cards (two regular and two keychains) active and ready to start saving)
  • Any tickets you brought within the last 30 days prior to you buying can be added also
  • Allows special pre-screenings at certain theatrers if a member
  • Receive special posters, pins, and more collectables if a member on opening weekends
Share a Pro
  • You only have 3 months to use your Stubs Points
  • No warning that Stubs is going to expire
Share a Con
  • 12 dollar annual cost
  • AMC Silver and Gold tickets are not counted towards one's Stubs Reward total
  • Cannot redeem reward when buying tickets online/kiosk
  • If your credit does not get applied, it is almost impossible to get AMC to fix the mistake
  • Not allowed to use it when buying gift cards!
  • Difficult AMC interface, comples password required, confusing to use and slows down ticket purchases

Mr. Wang didn't screw us over. It was the Americans behind AMC who sold out to China. #VoteWithYourDollars
