Calling all movie fanatics! You should already know by now that 2019 is going to be the glorious year for the ‘Supermovies’. We believe that everyone wants to be the first to watch the much-anticipated blockbuster films. However, purchasing a single premier ticket is already costly let alone tons of them.

Or better yet, what if we told you that there’s a smarter way to manage your expenses AND enjoy entertainment privileges with credit cards?

Utilise the benefits of these powerful pieces of plastic to keep your movies budget to the minimum while still indulging in your favourite shows like a boss!
