25 June 2018: Compare the Market’s cinema offering, Meerkat Movies – which treats customers to 2-for-1 cinema tickets every Tuesday or Wednesday for a whole year – is today celebrating the huge achievement of 10 million redemptions, just three years after launching.

With 20 million cinema-goers benefiting from the offer, the reward scheme has saved the UK over £74,900,000[1] and has helped film fans see some of the biggest blockbusters for less, including Black Panther, films from the Star Wars franchise and Bridget Jones’s Baby. Topping the list of most popular films is Beauty and the Beast, where 222,363 Meerkat Movies members redeemed their 2-for-1 codes to take a friend or family member to see the blockbuster hit last year. Also paving the way for the British film industry were Spectre and Dunkirk, coming in second and third respectively.

The landmark 10 millionth redemption was made at Vue in Livingston, where the customer took advantage of their 2-for-1 tickets to watch Love, Simon on the big screen.

“It’s great to see so many people taking advantage of Meerkat Movies and enjoying the magic of film for less. In under three years, we have filled over 20 million cinema seats – which, to put into context, is the equivalent of 22 Wembley stadiums. 2018 is a great year for cinema and with a number of big blockbusters on the horizon, we hope customers continue to take advantage of their Meerkat Movies membership every week of the year, for a whole year.”
