Put back up because the card now only lasts for 1 year instead of 3.

not a very good deal then,,,

great deal , saving over a fiver everytime you goto the flicks with your partner.
heatage. :thumbsup:


How does this work when booking tickets online?

It doesn't. This and Orange Wednesday only work at the cinema.

How is this a deal though? It's a concession for people who have a disability and while it's a great concession it isn't a deal s it is available all of the time to disabled people.

Next someone will post details of DLA or Carers allowance as a deal. How about "Blue Badge' FREE parking??

I renewed mine in march and its valid for 3 years.

Not as good a deal as it used to be! I got mine last year and its valid for 3 years

Still good though, you only need to go once to make your money back

I think it was well worth posting, it's possible some newly disabled/VI people aren't aware of it, so it is new information for them. For those people who knew about it previously, there are many who won't know the validity has changed from 3 years to 12 months, I didn't. Either way, £5.50 for a year's cinema is excellent value. Heatage. :thumbsup:

True this card only lasts for 1 year but considering it costs £5.50 and you save more than that on using it just once then it has got to be a good deal in my opinion. I have never paid myself into the cinema since using the card and getting in as a free carer. I wasn't aware of it existing for my teenage son and have already saved over £40 using it in the first 2 months. Unlike other cinema offers and vouchers this is fully valid for 3D screenings. However I am a bit disappointed I can't use it to book online then again I understand the cinema would need to check the card before purchasing. All in all my opinion is I will be renewing it next year and have recommended it to a few other people.

Found a cheaper one this one is £3 plus postage and is country wide for ALL venues that give concessions Kew Gardes etc.....
