How to save at the movies!

Going out to the movies can certainly get expensive, especially if you are paying for more than one person! When I do decide I’d like to see a movie before I can rent it, I like to save on a movie ticket as much as possible. Generally, I use my AAA discount to receive movie tickets at a cheaper price. Also, matinees are also another option. A third option is to use a daily deal site to receive discount movie tickets. Right now, Saveology is offering a $25 gift card to Regal Entertainment Group for $15 for new members. If you have a college ID or decide on a matinee, you can make that gift card go even longer!

$15 for a Regal Entertainment Group Gift Card ($25 Value) – Exclusively For You! **Now on sale for 12.50!**

Free Online Courses at Harvard, Stanford & MIT!

Class Central offers a variety of ongoing classes for free at various institutions like M.I.T., Stanford & Harvard. I don’t believe you can earn college credit for these classes, but this is a great opportunity to learn and expand your mind for free! :) For more information, please click here.
