How to See a Movie without Breaking the Bank!

Now that you have purchased some new clothing from Haband, it’s time to show it off! A trip to the movies is always fun but can add up between the price of tickets and concessions. But there are ways you can save at the movie theater. Below are some tips to keep more money in your wallet!

  • Go to a matinee or weekday showing. Make sure to check your local theaters, times and prices.
  • Most theaters offer a senior discount. This tends to be on a specific day of the week and varies by theater. Call beforehand to get more information. 
  •  Do you frequent one specific theater chain? If so, check to see if they have a loyalty club. 
  •  There are places where you can purchase discounted tickets such as Costco and through AAA (both require membership). 
  •  Deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial occasionally have deals on tickets.

We hope you found this article helpful.  Enjoy your trip to the movie theater!

National Grandparent’s Day is Right Around the Corner!

Did you know National Grandparent’s day is September 8? Haband®, Gold Violin® and Solutions®, specialty brands serving the 50+ consumer, surveyed 500 grandparents online to learn how they perceive and celebrate the holiday and most importantly, how they would like their grandchildren to commemorate this special occasion.

According to the survey, spending time with grandchildren is how grandparents would like to celebrate this special day (54 percent ranked a personal visit as their top choice), while others (36 percent) would like to receive a phone call. Other ways of celebrating the day included hugs, kisses, video chat and sharing a meal together.  You can read more about the survey here.

Since this tends to be a lesser-known holiday, here are some quick facts:
  • It is celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day.
  •  National Grandparent's Day became a national holiday in 1978.
  • The official flower of the day is the forget-me-not.
Of course it’s important to honor all grandparents on this day but it’s just as important to remember them throughout the year. Haband can help with finding the perfect gift. We offer an array of men’s clothing, women’s clothing, shoes and items for the home. We recently expanded our offerings with a web only deals section that includes electronics and health products. Happy Grandparent’s Day!
