It’s crunchy. It’s buttery. It’s lip-tinglingly salty.
No movie theater or Netflix experience is complete without it.
In fact, pretty much no life experience is complete without it. I’ll even admit to sometimes having it for dinner.
Yep, it’s popcorn. And yep, I’m a fangirl.
This Sunday, July 31, you can get a large bag of it at AMC — completely free.
Free Popcorn for AMC Stubs Members This Sunday
To celebrate the implementation of a new tier system in its Stubs Rewards program, AMC Theatres nationwide will hand out free large bags of popcorn to members.
If you’re not already enrolled, no worries: The “Insider” level of the Stubs program is completely free, and you can join it at the theater on Sunday.
Along with the already-totally-worthwhile instant gratification of free popcorn, enrolling in Stubs will help you save money at AMC in the future, too.
You’ll get free refills on any large popcorn order, reduced ticket prices and a free birthday gift in the form of — you guessed it — a large bag of popcorn.
If you’re a serious movie buff, you can upgrade your membership to the new “Premiere” level, whose $15 annual fee gets you more points per purchase, bigger freebies and rewards, and “premiere service” at the box office.
But even if you’re not big on cinema outings, you can take advantage of Sunday’s deal.
The press release doesn’t specify that a purchase is necessary, so you could conceivably walk in, get your free popcorn and leave, if the new “Star Trek” or “Bourne” movies don’t pique your interest.
Either way, you know where you’ll find me this Sunday — I’ve been itching to see the new “Ghostbusters.”
And since it’s free, no, I’m not sharing. You can get your own.
Your Turn: Will you take advantage of the free popcorn deal at AMC this weekend?
