Another MoviePass Price Reduction – Unbelievable Deal!
MoviePass has been taking over the country by storm. They have gone from several thousand users to almost 2 million users in the last 6 months. The big push came when they lowered the price to $9.95 a month 6 months ago. They then offered a discounted price lowering the price 12% but changed the billing to yearly. They have decided to cut the price even further.
The new deal is billed yearly as well. It appears this is their new pricing format for the time being since they no longer offer monthly plans. There are some potential issues with this set up that I will discuss further down.
The new plan is:
- Only available to new members
- $6.95 per month
- $6.55 one time processing fee
- $89.95 paid up front for the year
That gets you access to pretty much any 2D movie once every 24 hours. It is reported that MoviePass covers 91% of all theaters in America.
This is truly an astonishing deal if you enjoy going to the movies.
MoviePass has been in the news lately with some negativity. Their CEO claimed that they tracked their users. He then later came out and said that was not the case and offered an app update to correct any issues going forward.
It is unknown how this business model is sustainable so that is something to be wary of. Since you are paying up front if this goes belly up you may be out some of your money.
MoviePass’ customer service is seriously lacking…as you can see from the comments in my review. I even tried to tweet them a few weeks ago asking for a comment on their customer service issues and I never received a response. It seems they have been growing faster than they can get people in there to help.
It has taken some new members several months to get their card as well. They are not supposed to start the clock until the card ships but who knows if they will stick to that come the 12 month mark.
This really is a deal that is possibly too good to be true. Even with all of the issues listed above I would go for the deal and use it early and often to ensure I recouped my investment.
I still have mine and I still love it. But I have not had to deal with any issues yet. I am on the $9.95 per month plan but I would change it to this if I could. I even considered cancelling and setting up a new account, I may still do that.
If you are interested in the deal the MoviePass website has all the details.
What do you think? Is this price low enough to get you to sign up?
