Sinemia Good & Bad: New Halloween Promo, But $1.80 Cardless Service Fee Per Ticket

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  In today’s post, I have good things and bad things to say about Sinemia.  Let’s start with the good news.  Right now, probably through October 31, Sinemia is running a Halloween Sale on their individual and family plans.  For an individual, the 3 movie Classic Plan looks like a great deal at $8.99 / month.  Some of the family plans look good, but none of them offer a discount over purchasing 2 individual plans.  But before you purchase a Sinemia plan, there is some bad news to share…

Sinemia’s Fall Promo & Trying to Understand Cardless Activation and Membership Dates

Good morning, I hope you all had a great weekend.  Yesterday, I talked about MoviePass (Cannot Sign Into MoviePass App on New iPhone Due to “Unauthorized Device” Error Message).  Today, I will give Sinemia some love too.  Sinemia, a MoviePass competitor, recently launched their Fall Season Promo where you can get 3 movies per month for $9.99, 30 movies per month for $29.99 or several other combinations of 2D / 3D movies and family plans.  If you are not familiar with Sinemia, please read this post.  I also wanted to explain how Sinemia’s Cardless Activation process works and if it is worth an extra $9.99 to activate your membership right away.

Cannot Sign Into MoviePass App on New iPhone Due to “Unauthorized Device” Error Message [Phone Number Added]

Updated 10pm PT on 9/24: Reader Mikey shared MoviePass’s phone number in the comments.  The phone number is 646-400-0801 and it is not a toll free number.


Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  On Friday and Saturday, I spent a few hours setting up my new iPhone XS.  During the process, I tried to sign into the MoviePass app on my new iPhone but kept getting this error message: “Unauthorized Device – account in use on another device.”  Oh right, let me sign out of the MoviePass app on my old iPhone.  I went back to my new iPhone to try signing into the MoviePass app.  Same error message.  Ok, let me try deleting the MoviePass app on my old iPhone.  Unfortunately, I still got the same error message.  I decided to search on Google for a solution…

How to Use Sinemia’s (Complicated) Cardless Advance Ticket Purchase Feature

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  A few weeks ago, I wrote about Sinemia’s Summer Sale, where you could get 3 movies per month for $9.99 (same price as MoviePass without the BS!).  I didn’t want to wait for my Sinemia card to arrive in the mail, so I paid extra to activate Sinemia Cardless, which lets you start using your Sinemia membership right away.  With Sinemia Cardless, you get a virtual debit card number that you can use to purchase movie tickets through AtomTickets.com or MovieTickets.com.  You can purchase movie tickets up to 30 days in advance and select specific seats, if your theater allows that feature.  In this post, I will walk you through the complicated process of using Sinemia’s Cardless advance ticket purchase feature.  Now that I’ve booked my first advance ticket (I watched Peppermint), I will show you how to use Sinemia Cardless.
