Empire Theatre 2011 Holiday Gift Cards

27th November 2011

Do you have difficult people to shop for this holiday season?

Honestly, there are three very difficult people to shop for in my family – my mom, my dad, and my oldest brother. Every year it’s the same thing and they are always the last three people that I buy for. I ask them for suggestions and ideas so often that it’s almost painful (for me, not them – OY!). Also, my dad is actually embarassed to open presents – it’s pure torture for him. The holidays are more about family than gifts for him, so he asks the grandchildren to open his gifts for him. In the end, its a battle among my four siblings to see who will buy him new pjs & slippers, new clothes, new boots, and scratch tickets. He loves those scratch tickets!

My mom, I love her to death, but she drives me bonkers this time of year. Sometimes I’ll drag her to stores and ask her to give me ideas, but then she gives everyone the same ideas and I end up getting her the token nightgowns/robes/slippers gift or a gift certificate to her favorite kitchen store. That woman loves pots more than anyone I know.

And then there’s my brother – officially, the hardest person to buy for. He has EVERYTHING and he has very expensive taste. Let’s just say with him, I always make sure to keep the receipt!

Do you have a tough person to shop for?

Let me help you with that, because the Empire Theatre Gift Card combos are BACK!

Who doesn’t love going to the movies? This just might be the perfect gift card to give this year!!

This is the second year in a row that Empire Theatre is doing their Holiday Gift Card combos – they were a huge hit last year.

How do they work?

  • When you purchase $30 in Empire Theatres’ Gift Cards you will receive $30 in Empire Theatres Coupons. (For example, If you purchase 3 cards for $10 each you qualify. Also, if you purchase $60 you would receive 2 bundles!)

When are they available?

  • In theatres, they will be available until Saturday, December 24th.
  • Online, in order to receive them in time for Christmas, the last date to order online is December 18th!
Where can they be purchased?
What is included in the $30 coupon combo??

  • BOGO Admission (January 9 to January 31, 2012)
  • $2.00 off any Combo – excluding Kid’s Pack (January 9 to January 31, 2012)
  • $9.99 (Admission, Regular Drink, Small Popcorn) (February 1st to February 29th, 2012)
  • Buy a Large Popcorn, get a Large Drink Free (March 1st to March 31st, 2012)
  • $6.99 General Admission(March 1st to March 31st, 2012)
  • Get $4.00 off a General Admission Ticket(April 1st to April 30th, 2012)
You can also purchase gift tins that you can use as a gift box to make the gift card/coupon combo even more special. Each tin costs $1 plus tax and net proceeds will go to Kids Help Phone. You can even purchase these tins regardless of whether you purchase a gift card combo, both in theatres and online. A great way to help a great cause this time of year.

Empire Theatres – Give & Get Program

14th December 2010

Less than two week to go until Christmas, and I am VERY behind on my shopping. I have many, many, many gifts still to buy. What’s my plan of attack?

  • Make a list of who I have to buy for (why yes, this list is obscenely long – I have a very BIG family)
  • Write down ideas of what I want to buy for each person and the budget
  • Have an envelope of CASH for each person, so I know what I’ve spent and what I have left (yup – we pay cash for everything – that way we avoid the frightening Mastercard bill in January)
  • Pick up things as I see them (especially if they’re on sale) and mark them off the old list
  • Try very hard not to buy myself a little something, here and there
  • Eventually, it all gets bought, and wrapped and gifted (sounds very calm – it is anything but!)

Through MomCentral Canada, I heard about the Give & Get Program from Empire theatres, and I think it’s great! What’s the program?

  • When you purchase $30 in Empire Theatres’ Gift Cards you’ll receive $30 in Empire Theatres Coupons (I think the coupons could actually be a great stocking stuffers too!)
  • These can be purchased at the theatre and online!
  • The promotion ends FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24TH
  • The coupons will be valid in 2011, and each one will be valid for one month period.
  • Full details on the contents can be found here
