    Meerkat Movies - taking a senior

    Hi guys, just a thought but what's the deal with taking an over 60 to the cinema using Meerkat Movies? As in once I've added the code, is it okay to select the 2nd ticket, the paid ticket, as a senior? Senior's are a lot less where I am... Thanks.

    Okay, so that goes against the above... So you only pay for a child?

    yup. pay for the cheapest. I've always done it. there no issue whatsoever.

    Nope
    You have to pay for the higest prices ticket.
    Discount only works if you have say 2x students or 2xseniors

    Only way round it would be for the senior to buy the tickets and play dumb.

    ​Grr, I'm just going to have to play dumb on the night then... It's obviously not that clear then, no one here seems to know for sure and I can't find anything in the T's and C's?

    ...waits to be proven wrong

    Nobody can give you a definitive answer as we don't know how the ticket buying software in the cinema you're going to works.

    At the one I usually visit you specify the tickets then put the code in and the cheapest one becomes free.

    The CompareTheMarket T&C say that it's the cheapest ticket free so the cinema should be charging you for the most expensive ticket regardless of what the second ticket is:

    Whether they will or not, we can't say.

    do it online. you can then choose which ticket is free. Simples!!!

    Meant to feedback actually:

    Booking online, I now regularly take my Mum or Dad to Cineworld using Meerkat plus a senior. It's a little bit cheaper.

    Had absolutely no issues whatsoever
