MBNA customers will no doubt be aware of this offer but I've been meaning to post this on here for those who don't have one of their credit cards. IMO it's worth signing up for this offer alone!
MBNA offer customers special offers through their "Lifestyle" program. I first thought it was some kind of points based scheme but it's nothing like that. If you have an MBNA card simply visit http://www.mbna.co.uk/lifestyle/
and enter "mbna" in the Entry Code box. This takes you to the third party website with everything from holidays to games, dvds and music. To be able to purchase an item you need your MBNA card but you can view the deals without it.
The stand out deal for me personally is the cinema ticket vouchers (under Leisure then page 2) where you can get up to 5 pairs (per order) of cinema gift vouchers for Odeon or Cineworld at a cost of £8.75 per adult pair or £6.40 per child pair. If you want to use the vouchers in the West End (Cineworld) or M25 area (Odeon) they're a little more expensive (see site) but I guess the discount is still in line with the others. My local Cineworld (Sheffield) charges £6 per adult ticket so it's a great saving.
They are simply individual gift vouchers so although you have to purchase in a pair you don't have to use them together. Special delivery of the vouchers is £4.50 or 1st class postage is included. I believe they started shipping all vouchers as special delivery before xmas so that they made it in time and now they're offering that option at a price.
The best part is that because they're just gift vouchers, not a special cinema offer/promotion, you can still use the with the Orange Wednesdays offer (yes I've tried it). That means myself and my partner can both see a flick on a Wednesday evening for £4.73 (35p for Orange voucher) total (£2.36 each).
Bargain? I think so and I'm sure there are other good deals on there too. I'm just kicking myself for not stocking up when it first launched and they had a 3 for 2 offer on. DOH!
