7 Lessons I Learned from Sinemia Closing Down

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  On Thursday, Sinemia posted the following note on their homepage alerting members that they would be ceasing operations in the United States immediately.  This happened on opening day of the biggest movie of the year – Avengers: Endgame.  This is very disappointing for many reasons (I was a big fan of Sinemia and went to 2-4 movies a month with my monthly plan).  After closing my MoviePass account and opening my Sinemia account in August 2018, I’ve seen Sinemia evolve and change in the 6-7 months since then.  I thought it would be interesting to review the warning signs and the 7 lessons I learned through the process.

How to Activate Physical Sinemia Card Online

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  By the time you read this post, I will be on my way back home to San Francisco.  I promise to work on a few trips reports regarding my trip around Eastern Europe.  But in the meantime, here is my post on how to activate your physical Sinemia card.  I do not know exactly when I ordered my physical Sinemia card, but it was in early December.  A few weeks later, I got this email from Sinemia stating that my physical Sinemia card was sent out.  In the email, it says that the physical Sinemia card should arrive in 5-7 business days, but I was not home the last week and a half of December, so I am not sure exactly when it was delivered.  Without further ado, here is how to activate your physical Sinemia card online.

How to Order Physical Sinemia Card ($14.99 Fee)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Yesterday, I wrote Sinemia App Update: View Number of Tickets Used, Plan Start Date & Next Billing Date.  I am not sure if I missed this feature yesterday or if Sinemia made this feature live shortly after my post went live, but you can now order your physical Sinemia card.  By using the physical Sinemia card, you should avoid paying the $1.80 online processing fees, but the physical card does cost $14.99.  To order your physical card, log into your Sinemia account online, go to the Membership page, scroll down and click the blue Order Physical Card button.
