I have bad news. . . . I have been reading over the blogosphere that Weekly Cinema is closing up shop. I headed over to the Weekly Cinema site to verify it for myself and found this notice:
Thank you for visiting Weekly Cinema.
The future of Weekly Cinema is under review. While this review is being performed, we are not able to process or redeem movie ticket coupons. We are working with our deal site partners to achieve a refund for the unused movie tickets and promo codes in your Weekly Cinema account in an amount not to exceed the price you paid for each of the unused movie ticket coupons.
A Hotline phone number to provide additional information about Weekly Cinema is being set up. Please provide your Weekly Cinema email in the box below if you would like us to email you when an update is available.
Otherwise, check the site later today for further updates.
I have the read that Groupon is fulfilling the Groupon promise and is issuing full refunds. Tippr is issuing Tippr credits. If you are not happy with a Tippr credit, customer service will take your information and have someone contact you and Living Social is issuing refunds. Here are the contact numbers that you will need for your refund.
–Groupon (877) 788-7858
– Tippr (866)-347-0752
– Living Social (877) 521-4191
Below are some of my frugal buddies that are posting about Weekly Cinemas demise and what their readers are reporting.
