I Paid $10 to Watch 30 Movies in Theatres. Here’s How I Did It

UPDATE: MoviePass is regularly changing their new customer offer. We got our MoviePass for $9.95/mo for unlimited movies but as of 4/17/2018, MoviePass has changed their offer to be a $29.95 for 3 months, billed quarterly, offering a max of 4 movies and a subscription to iHeartRadio. Please see the MoviePass website for the most recent offer details.


Conversations happening all over America:

"Have you heard of MoviePass?"

"No, what is it?"

"You pay $9.95 a month and can see one movie a day?"

"Wait, what?"


"How's that even possible?"

"Yeah. IDK. But let's go to the movies while it lasts!"

Why I (Almost) Always Book My Flights Through Priceline

Priceline Flights

It's no secret that all of us here at AutoSlash are travel addicts.

On top of renting dozens of cars a year and staying many nights in hotels, we also fly tens of thousands of miles all over the globe. (We justify it to ourselves by saying we have to be travel experts in order to provide the best service to our customers, but really we all just suffer from an acute case of wanderlust.)

Much of my travel has been on cheap airfare sales or even outright mistake fares. I don't think I've spent more than $500 (round-trip!) to cross any ocean in the last nine years (not counting the miles I've redeemed to fly international first class, of course).

While there are all kinds of sources out there to help us find those cheap airfares—one of the ones I've found the most productive is, but there are lots of others we'll cover some other time—I always gravitate towards one place to book my flights: Priceline.

Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty List Spring Arizona and Florida Drive-Out Promotions


For much of the history of Hertz Global Holdings, the company -- now the parent of Dollar, Hertz, and Thrifty -- was the market-dominant leader (by far). Now, the company is firmly entrenched as the number three rental car corporation and taking cues from market dominant Enterprise Holdings (Alamo, Enterprise, and National) and AvisBudget Group (Avis, Budget, and National), including listing predictable offers more than a month later than their competitors. Every fall, rental car companies focus on getting vehicles to Arizona and Florida -- high-use areas in the winter -- and away from colder climes. Each spring, the rental car companies need to get vehicles out of Arizona and Florida to areas with greater summer demand. AvisBudget Group and Enterprise Holdings listed their offers more than a month ago; now Hertz and the company's subsidiaries are officially in the game -- better late than never, as one might say.

U.S. Travel Association's Annual Daily Getaways Promotion Has Rental Car Offers

Daily Getaways

Every April, the U.S. Travel Association offers their Daily Getaways program, where selected travel partners make various awards available for purchase each day, Monday through Friday, for a series of weeks. The 2018 Daily Getaways series lasts five weeks, with the first three weeks' worth of offers already posted. Three rental car companies -- Avis, Hertz, and Alamo -- have offers available in the three weeks already published and the most desirable offers sell out within seconds. Should a renter consider sitting at their computers at 1 p.m. Eastern time to seek these offers? The answer, like many other situations in life, is "it depends".
