Apple Pay Promo Celebrates Oscars With $5 Off Two or More Fandango Movie Tickets

One week after launching an Instacart promotion for Apple Pay users, Apple's latest offer for Apple Pay customers is $5 off movie tickets with ticketing service Fandango.

To get the discount, Apple said that you'll have to order two or more movie tickets in a single transaction within the Fandango app [Direct Link] or on Fandango.com, enter the promo code "STARPOWER" at checkout, and then choose Apple Pay to complete the order to receive $5 off the total.


The promo is tied into the upcoming 90th Academy Awards ceremony and aimed at moviegoers planning on heading to the theater this weekend, expiring on Sunday, March 4. Apple also encourages customers to "Look the part" for their movie night and use Apple Pay at Barneys New York and Ulta Beauty. The company also continues to promote Apple Pay Cash, this time as a solution for you to pay back your friend for the Fandango promotion, since one person has to make the order in a single transaction.

Fandango was one of the first partnerships that Apple launched as a way to promote Apple Pay, also including Postmates, two promos for Instacart, and more.

There is apparently a $3 "convenience fee", which makes this deal less good than it seems. :(

After the last Apple Pay Fandango promo fiasco and trying to deal with Fandango's non-existent customer service, they don't have to worry about me ever buying tickets from them.

$5 off of 2 $20 movie tickets with a $4 convenience fee? How embarrassingly generous.

I'm watching movies on my AppleTV, so this promotion is of no interest.

Would much rather apple work with some of the big retailers like costco to integrate customer ID and apple pay into their business process.
