Cineplex.com Cineplex: Get a FREE Movie Ticket with Specially-Marked Candy Get a FREE Movie Ticket with Select Candy!

get this deal

Buy some extra candy at the grocery store, because Collect & Get is back for 2019 and you'll get a free Cineplex movie ticket when you purchase five packages of specially-marked Mars candy!

Simply purchase any five qualifying products, then upload a photo of your receipt along with the candy to the redemption page. Once verified, you'll receive a Cineplex promo code redeemable for a general admission ticket!

We've listed this year's lineup of eligible products with links to Walmart -- the candy can be purchased anywhere, but we'd advise shopping in-stores, as there's no guarantee of getting a specially-marked package when buying online.

Historically, the best value can be found at Dollarama, where qualifying M&M's and Skittles products are $2.00 each -- look for a Cineplex banner on the packaging to identify them in-store.

This offer is effective until December 31 and all Cineplex codes must be used by January 31, 2020. Specially-marked products are only available for a limited time and there's a limit of four Cineplex ticket codes per household.

      Perfect to combine with the lunchmates offer.
      I guess parents?
      Kids like lunchmates, kids like candy (but honestly the candy side seems like a lot more hoops than previous M&Ms/Cineplex promotions YMMV)

    • Girlfriend saw these at Dollarama, but the promo start date was listed as Jun 17 :thinking:

      Attaching photos of the in-store promo for reference -- it's only on specially marked bags.

      It's unfortunate that the promo is just for 1 movie ticket. I remember 2+ years ago it used to be 2 :(.
      *edit* used to be 2 tickets for 8 bags ***

      This roughly translates to a movie + 5 bags of M&Ms/candy for $10 + tax.

      It used to be buy 8 bags to get 2 tickets. Now it’s 5 bags for 1. So not quite as good but not that much difference really.

    • Funny how they want you to buy candy before going to the theater :)

      Appreciate the clarification! Yeah, I now remember the 8 bag requirement.

      Sigh, I did it twice, but the second time I had 7 codes, and couldn't find the 8th 😅😭.

      Don't forget to properly record the codes everyone!

    • I personally prefer 1 ticket for 5 bags deal than 2 tickets for 8 bags. 5 bags of candy sounds quite a lot to me let alone buying 8 bags of it!

    • I believe the below is more expensive than the cineplex ticket itself

      1 bag of candy seems like a lot to me - in the sense that I never really buy candy.
      Might make an exception for this promo.
      How does a bag of Twix work? Is it a bag of mini Twix?

    • Not seeing maltesers mentioned in the fine print

    • FYI I found this in the FAQ. You don't need to buy the "specially marked" packages of Mars Bites and Maltesers.

      https://www.moviecollectandget.ca/faq
      3. I can't find specially marked packs of MALTESERS® (100g, 165g) or MARS® Bites (130g, 230g); can I submit entries for these participating products without the specially-marked packaging?

      Yes, as an exception and due to production difficulties in creating specially-marked packaging for MARS® and MALTESERS®, we are accepting all packs of MALTESERS® (100g, 165g) and MARS® Bites (130g, 230g) for entry into this promotion.

      As the terms & conditions relate the Mars, Snickers and Twix are mini nugget sized "Bites" versions

    • 2. What products are participating in this promotion?

      Specially marked packages of the following products: M&M'S Peanut (120g, 200g, 400g), M&M'S Milk Chocolate (120g, 200g, 400g), M&M'S Caramel (120g, 200g, 400g), MALTESERS (100g, 165g), SNICKERS Bites (130g, 230g), TWIX Bites (130g, 230g), MARS Bites (130g, 230g), SKITTLES Original, Berry, Sours, or Tropical (191g), STARBURST Gummies Original, Sour, and /or STARBURST Original packages (191g)
      Ehh nothing I would want to buy. Maybe the M&Ms milk chocolate but my movie candy of choice is M&M Peanut Butter/Reese's Pieces. Buying 5 packs of Maltesers is just a bit much.

      I've never done this kind of promo before, so what "codes" are you talking about?

      It says "SNAP A PHOTO OF YOUR RECEIPT AND PRODUCT PURCHASED" / "UPLOAD YOUR RECEIPT AND PRODUCT PHOTO"

      To me, in order to qualify, all they need is a photo of the receipt, and a photo of the 5 bags???
