Times are different now, and you may (or may not) agree with me that anything free is welcome. I, for one, love free movies. I would actually do anything for a free movie (blog, attend press launches, go to premiere nights, cover events and whatnots) Of course, it would be a bonus if the movie is really good, but the free movie itself is already a treat. PhP 200 for a movie, at the least, is a big amount nowadays. Of course, add to that your popcorn, your favorite drink, and if you’re a guy with a date (depends to you if it’s still a guy or a gal, LOL!) it’s double the price.
Everybody loves a treat, that’s why SMART Communications brings you Smart bCODE, in partnership with SM Cinemas. Smart bCODE is the newest innovation of SM Cinema, wherein you can redeem movie tickets, food and drink through you mobile phones via an alphanumeric code.
With enough points, you can choose from a FREE drink, FREE popcorn, P100 off your movie ticket, or even a FREE movie pass! You accumulate points just by using your SMART Gold, SMART Buddy, or SMART Bro accounts.
It’s just pretty simple to do, too! You need to redeem the rewards using your SMART account. Just follow the simple steps below:
1. Text POINTS and send to 9800 for free to check the number of points that you already have. Text REWARDS and send to 9800 to know the items you can redeem.
2. Text REDEEM and send to 9800 for free.
3. Save the alphanumeric code that you will receive and will need to claim your rewards.
4. Go to the nearest SM Cinema and find the bCODE machine to scan your bCODE. To do this, the mobile screen should have its light on and facing down to the red portion of the machine.
You can also send the code to your family and friends as a gift. The bCODE, however, is a unique code, so only one of you will be able to use it. bCODE machines are found all over numerous SM Cinemas around the Philippines! Check out this list:
Now it’s even more fun to use your cellphone. While getting connected with family, friends, and loved ones, you also enjoy these amazing rewards! Truly, a wonderful feature coming from SMART Communications. Watching a movie will never be the same (expense) with bCODE around. So go use SMART-enabled device more and EARN, REDEEM, and ENJOY!
