Deal: Four Museum or Movie Tickets from American Express for $3 to $8
If you are an American Express member, a promotion is currently going on called Museum or Movie. The deal is that if you make a certain number of purchases at participating merchants during 4/1/2008 and 5/31/2008 you can redeem the receipts for four complimentary movie tickets or museum tickets. If there is no movie theatre or museum location near you, they will send you a $40 Amex gift card.
It is possible to take advantage of this deal for under $8. Here are some examples:
Del Taco - Three purchases are required. You can buy three tacos or drinks between 4/2/2008 and 5/20/2008 for under $3.
Carlito's Pizzeria - I'm not sure where this is, but only two purchases are required between 4/1/2008 and 5/31/2008 and I'm sure two sodas would probably cost less than $5.
Harley Davidson - Once again, only two purchases are required, but their decal stickers are $3.95 each so you can go to a dealership and buy 2 stickers for under $8 and take advantage of the deal.
The full list of participating merchants is listed in the dropdown box on this page. You have to postmark your receipts by 6/30/2008 but the rules regarding number of purchases and dates vary by merchant. You have to click through to the redemption form to see each merchant's requirements. It seems that you cannot mix and match the merchants and each cardmember can only take advantage of the deal once. I am probably going to do the Del Taco option because my husband likes their tacos. Have fun finding your best deal!
