If U frequent theaters get 'free' money

I've seen folks disrespect AMC for exuberant pricing on snacks and beverages, but that's been the case for the 30 some years I've gone to the silver screen providers; so get over it!
My thing with stubs is when I frequent movies and spend money I was already planning to spend, this program gives me money back in my pocket. I think I spent like $12 for the card (or whatever their fee is) and in the course of a year received *well* over $100 back in free movies.
I would have spent that money anyway to catch the flicks I wanted to see on the big screen... the fact is I spent $100 LESS than I would have; because I wanted to see the flicks I went to see anyway, but was comped the ticket fee.
