Did you know that Jan. 19 is National Popcorn Day? It's a great day to celebrate one of America's favorite snack foods — popcorn. In honor of the date, several major movie theater chains as well as some online retailers are offering up sweet (or maybe salty) discounts. Here are the top National Popcorn Day deals.
National Popcorn Day is a great time to head to the movie theater. Some of the largest cinema chains are giving customers 50 percent off certain popcorn flavors and sizes. Or, if you prefer to order online, a few popcorn makers have discounts going on today and even for a few days past Jan. 19.
According to Popcorn.org, Americans eat about 14 billion quarts of popcorn per year. Saving money can help you enjoy more of this tasty treat, so check out the best deals below.
AMC Theaters are offering 50 percent off popcorn on Jan. 19.
AMC, the largest movie theater chain, is selling popcorn for 50 percent off (all sizes, at all U.S. locations). AMC's discount is automatic whether on a mobile order or at the counter. AMC Stubs loyalty members also get a free refill on a large popcorn that was already half-price.
You can get 50 percent off large popcorn at Cinemark.
Cinemark, another major theater chain, is also giving 50 percent off popcorn, but only the large size, regularly priced at $8. According to KrazyKouponLady, if you use Snacks in a Tap on this date, you're entered to win free popcorn and soda in-theater for all of 2023.
