The ‘Visa One Rupee’ offer has been a great success, and we thought we would share some information with you on how best to avail the offer. Every day, we begin the offer at 10:00am and the first 200 transactions who pay using a Visa debit card get 1 ticket at a discounted price of Re 1. This is subject to a limit of 2 discounted tickets per month.

We have seen the following redemption pattern over the last few weeks:

On weekends, the 200 tickets are generally snapped up within the first hour, sometimes even within 15 minutes. Also, sometimes the 200 tickets get blocked within a few minutes, but not everyone’s payment is approved by the bank, so some tickets may get released after a few minutes again. Having said that, if you are logging on post 10:30am, your chances of getting a discounted ticket are very slim.

On weekdays, the 200 tickets usually sell out by 12:00pm.

In either case, the best chance of getting the ‘One Rupee’ ticket is to try and book early. In case you do not get this offer, you can still avail the 20% discount which is available for the next 2000 tickets every day.

PS: A few customers have complained that if their transaction fails, they are not able to utilise the offer again on the same card. What actually happens is that the system takes 15 minutes to unlock the card, so if you try to book again after 15 minutes, you would be able to take the offer (subject to availability).

    Hi Gurpreet,
    The Visa offer is available for redemption on the payments page only. Are you visiting bookmyshow directly or through a partner cinema site? Also, which cinema are you trying to book for?

    I have tried many times on different dates mostly between 9:59 am and 10:30 am but never got through. Many times the message appears even after 10:00 am that it will open at 10:00 and close at 12:00 pm or the something like quota full for the day.. I tried a few times on a particluar date between 10 am and 1030 and saw the 2 messages within a time gap of few seconds. this seems to be marketing gimmick.

    Hey guys,
    It’s great offer. I got free tickets every time when I wanted. Thanks to BMS for such a great offer.
    I request to BMS to continue this offer for a long time.
    The person who could’t get the benefit of this offer for them I suggest to book ticket at sharp 10AM with high broadband speed internet. I am 100% sure you will have the free ticket.
    Thanks again BMS.

    This Re 1 offer seems to be a scam for me till now. Have tried it n number of times and it has never worked. some or the other problem, your website gives a technical error asking to try again, but the card gets locked for 15 minutes and by that time the days quota is over. or within 30 seconds of 10am it says quota is over….oh and it wants me to believe it …. all marketing gimmicks …

    I have booked atleast 10 tickets on visa Re 1.usually i do it dot 10 am with multiple browser open.hence i clicked it right and got the discoints.I only missed once due to my connection error at dot 10 am.Thx anyway for the offer.Would appreciate if it continues.

    i agree with ramya…visa blockbuster offer is one just crap….waste spending time with book my show…i wasted half a day for this crap offer…it will ask your card details apply offer and at end it will say pg error…when you try again it will not allow you…and after sometime it will say quota over….why to publish fake news to people…book my show should take proper looks bad on bms….bms people also not responding properly when we call them…may be some internal dealings in bms..god knows…

    VISA Re.1 Offer expired on Dec 31,2010.
    VISA Blockbuster Weekend Offer is only for the first 300 Visa Qualifying Transactions made on any Promotion weekend days i.e Friday to Sunday, for the booking of (at least) one full-price movie ticket online on, will entitle the Visa Cardholders who made these bookings to get one free movie ticket in the same transaction, subject to “Offer Terms and Conditions”, “How to Avail offer” as well as under “General Terms and Conditions Applicable For Offer”. Suggest people to be early to cash in on the offer; opens at 10am sharp and lots of people rush and avail in the first few minutes.

  29. Dheeraj

    January 20, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    This offers seems to be fake as I tried to book the tickets multiple times at sharp 10 AM but could not make it though I got the 20% discount once…These supporting comments are coming from BMS team only with different names…Check that comments from Vijay and Pavitra are excatly same..
