A wee New Year bonus for you. Short version: You can get a year of Meerkat Movies 2 for 1 cinema (codes eligible every Tuesday/Wednesday) without actually purchasing insurance from comparethemarket.com - follow these instructions: 1. Do a Compare the Market quote for car insurance (may also work with other types of insurance). 2. Click on a quote and take it as far as you can without making the purchase. 3. Take a note of your quote reference number, fill in the Meerkat Movies online application form (http://your-rewards.comparethemarket.com/claim)* and wait 24-48 hours for it to be validated. Even though you have not purchased insurance, it should still be approved. Background detail (feel free to ignore): You would assume that Compare the Market would reject an application for a Meerkat Movies code if you didn’t go through with your quote, but not so in my experience. Twelve months ago I got a CTM quote and I called up one of the car insurers to discuss some details of it (there’s no stipulation that you must complete the process online). However, some of the insurer’s terms weren’t to my liking and I ended up going with a different company. However, I’d already prematurely completed the Meerkat Movies application, so imagine how surprised I was that it passed the validation process. I assumed it was just a one-off glitch, but after enjoying 12 months of 2 for 1 cinema I decided to try it again with different details last week. Once again, I generated a quote but didn’t go through with it and, sure enough, Meerkat Movies validated my application within 24 hours. I debated whether to share this, as it could be deemed morally questionable to apply for an offer knowing that you aren’t eligible, but for all I know Compare the Market are fully aware of this and are quite happy to take the hit in exchange for some of your personal details. Happy 2017, HUKDers. * At the time of writing you also get to choose a free stuffed meerkat toy with this Compare the Market offer, but the validation process for the toy is much longer so I don’t want to promise that you’ll get the toy for free too. But you might!

To be honest this is incredibly petty of people who abuse the system like this, and although this will make me quite a target for abuse now, but I've phoned Compare the Market and informed them of this exact thread and what people are doing.
Its classed as Fraud and I've been informed people who have abused this will face consequences.

That's nothing, I reported this thread to the Police, My local PM, Inland Revenue, Ant 'n Dec, GCHQ, Scooby Doo, BBC Points of View and a whole lot of Ferk you.
So there :p

Our Jails are already full enough and now you are responsible for alerting the police/Serious fraud squad and further filling them with the "Meerkat 2for1 fraud brigade"....

whilst I will feel safer in my bed that these criminal have felt the consequences of their illegal activities... our taxes have taken one hell of a battering because of you....

As long as everything is safe in the world.. I am glad your society conscious free time was best served in this manner... I could however suggest that many local charities accept people like you with a good deed in your heart, a daily mail under your arm and plenty of free time... its called Volunteering... look it up.. I think itll open a whole new world of the kindness and giving you seek...

On behalf of England, Great Britain, the rest of Europe and the world beyond I thank you for outstanding contribution to society and safe guarding its morale compass...

I got the 2 for 1 movies around june....then they sent me an email saying I could claim a toy...... that was rejected as I already claimed the movies, strange as I was only claiming what they said I could but turned out to be movies or toy!

Worked for me without a reference number. Didnt put any in as its optional.
#22
p.s- thanks op, fingers crossed they don't pick up on this and cancel them
#23
I worked with CTM for several years and do you know why they do this? it's so they can trace which insurance company sold on thier site so they can get thier money. it can take months to link most of these quotes so doesn't surprise me they accept it. Good find OP :)

Has anyone done it without using car insurance? Car insurance quotes always affect my credit score that's all

They shouldn't. It does a soft search which other providers can not see.

You are all ticking the box "By completing this form I confirm I bought my insurance policy, or was successfully approved for a credit card or loan, or applied to switch energy, mobile phone, or broadband, phone & TV providers through comparethemarket.com". Isnt that legally binding and technically lying? :D
#27
I feel it's falsely marketed in a way, as the fact you can only go Tuesdays and Wednesdays doesn't exactly jump out in the adverts. I work both days every week unless I'm on leave, so never get to use it!

It's not technically lying, it's fraud isn't it? I was hopeful for this thread until I saw that you'd mentioned this declaration!

Yes. And though I doubt anything will come of it, choosing an insurance company as your target is really, really stupid.

Will it work for a meerkat toy?

I've got it already but will try this again when renewal due and it runs out. Thanks for the heads up OP

Their accounts closed? I suspect that wouldn't really bother anyone as they'd only be in the original position pre-signup anyway

In any case I don't agree with this either, it's not so much a freebie as playing the game.

Yes. But not fraud.

If you fancy playing that kind of game though, why not maximise your returns by watching your first film at 10am then sneaking between screens as each film ends. You can then get 5 movies for the price of one. Whilst technically straying into theft rather than fraud, I'm sure you're still keen to endorse that further loophole.
