The cost of the movie ticket is more than the value of my Fandango Promo Code.

How do I use my Concession Certificate?
To activate reward code and receive your Concession Certificate, just follow these simple steps:
- Visit www.activaterewards.com/concessions
- Enter your reward code
- Print out or pull up your Concession Certificate on your mobile phone and present it at the concession stand at a participating theater
The Concession Certificate includes my name. Can I give one to a friend to use?
The movie theaters are trained to check for photo identification, which is why the activation website instructs you to enter the information of the person who will be using the Concession Certificate. You are welcome to give it to a friend to use at a participating theater, but it is ultimately at the theater's discretion whether or not they will accept it in someone else's name. If you go as a group you should not have any trouble using it, as long as the person whose name is on the Concession Certificate is present at the theater.
I am redeeming a Concession Certificate for my child. Should I register it in my name or my child's name?
The movie theaters are trained to check for photo identification, so it is best to register the Concession Certificate in the name of the adult who would be presenting it at the movie theater.
I selected a movie theater in my area, so why did the Concession Certificate include a different address?
The address appearing on the Concession Certificate is the address for Fandango and it is not related to the theater you selected. The address is for theater use only, and will be used when the theater processes your Concession Certificate for payment.
Can I go to a different movie theater than the one I selected?
Yes, you can visit our theater locator site and enter in your zip code and the specific locator code appearing on your Concession Certificate, and this will give you a list of all the theaters that will accept it. You are welcome to attend any theater listed under that specific locator code.
How do I use my Concession Certificate?
Please print out your Concession Certificate and take it to the concession counter at a participating theater. Present it to the cashier as payment for your concessions and have an ID as the cashier may ask for it.
Which theaters accept Concession Certificates?
Please use our theater locator site for a list of participating theaters and show times in your area. You will need to enter your zip code and the specific locator code appearing on your Concession Certificate.
The theater's concession price is more than the value of my Concession Certificate. Will they still accept it?
You are responsible to pay the difference between the Concession Certificate value and the total price of your concessions using cash or a credit card.
If the total purchase price of my concession(s) is less than the value of my Concession Certificate do I receive change?
No. No credit or change will be given for any unused portion of a Concession Certificate. Your Concession Certificate is only valid according to the restrictions stated on it.
What can I do if I lose my Concession Certificate?
You will receive a confirmation email, which includes a link to print your Concession Certificate. Please note, if you are having a difficult time finding your confirmation email, it may have been directed to your junk mail or spam folders. Lost or misplaced Concession Certificates will not be replaced or refunded.
Can I make copies of my Concession Certificate?
No mechanically reproduced, forged, or altered Concession Certificates will be accepted. Fraudulent submission could result in federal prosecution under fraud statutes.
My Concession Certificate has expired. Can it be replaced?
The Concession Certificates are limited time offers which coincide with the release of specific movies or promotions. Unfortunately, we are not authorized to exchange, replace, renew, or refund any expired certificates once the promotion has ended or the specific movie is no longer in theaters.
