How I spent £1.17 to get half price films all year

2 for 1 movie tickets are cheaper and easier than you think!

You've probably seen the advert for Meerkat Movies, the one with the Russian meerkats visiting the cinema or causing mischief. But you don't have to just use the site for your home or car insurance in order to get the bonus. Getting half price films for a year is cheaper than you think!

Fortunately the meerkats are particularly generous and the promotion applies to pretty much anything bought through their site. Not just your annual car or home insurance, which you can often get cheaper by negotiating directly with the providers. For example a day's travel insurance, even to remain in the UK, also counts. 

There are a few conditions, not every cinema accepts it, and it's limited to Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but to me this is a no-brainer.

Here's what I did. I picked a day. I went to got quotes for single trip travel insurance from Compare the Market. I set the conditions to be within the UK, with no extras whatsoever. 

I picked the cheapest one which happened to be with Insure and Go. I clicked through to their website and purchased the insurance. 

After a few days it had cleared through the Compare the Meerkat site and I was good to go.

As simple as that. I can't tell you how much I'll save, as it depends on how many films I see, but after one film, I'm already saving!
