AMC Stubs Program Sucks!

Don't see much value in this programs anymore especially since they dropped the AMC gold/silver ticket usage. I really don't get this. I understand that AMC gold/silver tickets are discounted tickets, but they are still purchased for a cost. These are NOT free tickets. Plus AMC mornings shows cost relatively the same as the AMC gold tickets costs. So why would a morning show ticket purchase count but a Gold/Silver ticket purchase would not count?! ...Additionally you need to spend min $100 to get $10 worth of points. Considering you pay $12 for the membership, this is just a breakeven point. So your really need to spend $200 to see any benefit. Additionally any points earned need to be used within 3 months and there are no alerts or reminders before points expire. Lost a lot of points this way and realized there is no value in this anymore.
  • 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

  • Difficult AMC interface, comples password required, confusing to use and slows down ticket purchases

Latest AMC Stubs Review
The AMC stubs program is a complete ripoff. We joined the program, and have tried to register the card on the AMC website to take advantage of the benefits. When we try to register it states we already are however when we purchase tickets we still get charged...

Stubs is a bum deal for a majority of moviegoers. It needs to be put out to pasture.
