I hope this is the right section to post this. apologies if not.

this sneaky loophole can save you a wad of cash, and what's more, can be used time and time again. Simply sign up for a £1 PAYG Orange sim card and you'll be able to bag half price cinema tickets every Wednesday as long as the offer runs.
Every Wednesday, any Orange customer can go to almost any cinema nationwide and get 2 for 1 on the cinema ticket entry.
Yet this loophole can be used by ANYONE, not just Orange customers. For a one-off expenditure of £1 you can access the deal, saving you (and a friend) the cost of a cinema ticket each time.
How the loophole works It's quite simple really, you just buy a £1 pay-as-you-go Sim from orange for a £1 and then you can use this to grab the tickets.
The process of getting the 2 for 1 is quite simple. Once you get the Orange sim, pop it in your phone instead of your normal Sim, then text Film to 241 or call 241, it'll then send you a message (which costs 35p/text) which you show the box office to get the deal.
How long will the Sim last?
To keep the Sim activated you need make a call at least once every 6 months. Yet this includes free calls to check your balance, just dial 453 from your phone and this will count as a call.
However do remember you have to pay to receive the 2 for 1 text from Orange (it's 35p). The PAYG initially has £1 credit on it and once it runs out you will need to top it up.
When the credit does run out the minimum top up amount is £5. If you know you're going to use that amount of credit for cheap cinema tickets fine, if not just buy a new sim card as and when you need it.
Any possible problems?
Within Orange's terms and conditions it does state 'Text tickets are issued on a priority basis to active customers who spend over £5 per month with Orange. Orange may revise the terms of this promotion from time to time.'
This means it does have a get our clause and while I've not yet heard of anyone falling foul of this. There's always a chance, then again the outlay is only £1. See Orage's full Terms and Conditions.
