If you have an Apple device and use the Fandango app, you could save some money on a movie this weekend at Duluth area theaters. The nationwide promotion, which knocks $5 of the purchase of 2 of more tickets, highlights the convenience of using Fandango to buy your tickets in advance with the added convenience of using Apple Pay. It is also tied to the 90th Academy Awards on ABC, though it can be used to purchase tickets for any movie, and not just Oscars contenders.

To take advantage of the promotion, you simply need to order your tickets before the end of the day on March 4 using Fandango.com or the Fandango App on your iPhone or iPad, enter the promo code STARPOWER and use Apple Pay to pay for your ticket purchase. There is a little fine print on this offer, but it's pretty straightforward.

The details (via AppAdvice.com) are as follows:

Order two or more movie tickets in a single transaction on fandango.com or via the Fandango app, enter promo code “STARPOWER” at checkout, and then complete your movie ticket purchase using the Apple Pay payment method to receive $5 off your order. Promo code expires March 4, 2018, while supplies last. Ticket purchase must be made with an Apple Pay account. Limit one promo code per person. Limited quantity of promo codes are available. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.

If you've never used Fandango before, the app works seamlessly to purchase tickets for all Duluth area Marcus Theaters (Canal Park and Hermantown) as well as Zinema 2 in Downtown Duluth. For theaters where you can pick specific seats (like the Marcus Duluth Cinema in Canal Park), you can select you specific seats right in the app. Also, if you're part of a movie rewards program like the Marcus Move Rewards program, Fandango allows you to input your rewards information to earn rewards and save on online ticket purchases, just like you can through the theater's website or app.

I've never used Fandango for movies at Zinema 2, but the local Marcus Theaters have a self-serve kiosk where you can print off tickets purchased through the app by inputting a code from the Fandango app. The kiosk prints off your tickets, and you're set to head into your show!
