We’ve rounded up some of the best Odeon deals to save you some money on your next trip to the cinema.

Odeon ticket deals and offers
2-4-1 tickets with Meerkat Movies
Meerkat Movies can get you two tickets for the price of one on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It’s offered to people that take out insurance with Compare the Market, but we have a way of getting it for just a quid with a sneaky trick. You can also now get Meerkat Meals included.
Up to 40% off with Lidl+ / Cinema Society
With Lidl’s free app you can get access to Cinema Society. This gives you up to 40% off at Odeon, other cinema chains, as well as movie rentals.
Up to 40% off at Odeon with Tastecard+
Tastecard and Gourmet Society members can also save up to 40% on all tickets at Odeon. Odeon Leicester Square and BFI Imax are excluded.
Gourmet Society regularly has free or £1 trials, while Tastecard offers a monthly running option at £2.99 so you can give it a try, but be aware both will auto-renew if you don’t cancel.
However, sometimes you can buy cheaper tickets direct with the cinema, so compare prices before buying via Tastecard.
Two tickets for £8 for Vodafone customers (+£1 booking fee)
If you’re a Vodafone customer then you can get two Odeon cinema tickets every week with VeryMe Rewards. You can do this once per week for any film at any time.
To get it, you just need to tap on “Rewards” in the Vodafone app and claim the offer.
Two standard tickets will cost £8, while two Luxe tickets cost £13.
You’ll need to pay an additional £1 booking fee when using the voucher on the Odeon website, though this covers both tickets.
If you don’t have Vodafone this hack could get you access to the various offers.
Two tickets for £10 for Amazon Prime members
If you have Amazon Prime, you can now get two Odeon tickets for £10 once per month. This can be used from Mondays to Thursdays. This includes the £1 booking fee per ticket.
This isn’t a revolutionary offer – tickets at some Odeon venues are typically £5 with myODEON anyway, which could come to half that if used with Meerkat Movies, but it could get you a decent price if neither of these are available and you already pay for Amazon Prime.
All you need to do is go to this page, which will give you a code that’s valid for 30 minutes. You use this code on the Odeon website to get your tickets.
Two tickets for £10 for Octopus Energy customers (+£2 booking fee)
With Octopus Energy’s new rewards program Octoplus, you can get two Odeon tickets for £10, though you’ll need to pay a £1 booking fee per ticket.
You don’t need to earn any points from Octoplus to redeem the offer.
To be able to sign up, you need to have your electricity supplied by Octopus, have an electricity smart meter and pay by Direct Debit to be able to use Octoplus rewards.
Here’s our review of Octoplus.
Odeon myLimitless: From £14.99 a month
Odeon myLimitless is an annual membership that allows you to see as many films as you like in Odeon cinemas. You pay £14.99 per month or £17.99 for myLimitless Plus, which also gets you Odeon Luxe, seat upgrades and screen upgrades. Here’s our analysis of whether it’s any good or not.

myODEON: tickets from £5
With myODEON you can get access to “member prices” – you’ll see a yellow symbol next to the film times that have the reduced prices.
Prices start at £5 all day on Member Mondays and for selected showings Tuesday to Sunday.
This is only for a limited set of cinemas, so check this list to see if your local Odeon has the offer.
With myODEON you also get access to limited time offers and you can amend bookings and get refunds.
Odeon gift card discounts
There are a few ways that you can buy discounted Odeon gift cards, including from Costco, if you’ve got a membership. Tesco and Amazon often run promotions where you can get an Odeon gift card at 15%-20% off, so these are worth checking out too.
The nice thing about buying discounted Odeon gift cards is that you can still make the most out of other discounts, like Meerkat Movies or member prices.
You’ll need to remember to use the full gift card before it expires, otherwise you’ll just lose money. We’ll share any offers here when we spot them
Tesco: 20% off Odeon gift cards
Tesco is running a promotion offering 20% off Odeon gift cards and The Restaurant Card.
These cards are only worthwhile if you actually spend money at either of these brands. Check which brands accept The Restaurant Card before you buy one for yourself or as a gift.
This ends on 11 February 2024.
Get cashback on Odeon gift cards
Another way to save money at Odeon is to use cashback sites to buy Odeon gift cards. These include JamDoughnut, TopGiftCards, Cheddar or HyperJar. We have a section covering this in our discounted gift cards guide.
If you’re a new member of some of these sites, you can get up to £15 for signing up and making your first purchase, too.
Special rates and screenings
Odeon has its own deals and discounts that can save you money, including its free membership myOdeon.
You can get discounted Odeon tickets when you buy family tickets, and if you’re heading to watch the latest blockbuster with your kids. Here are the discounts available.
Save when you book online
If you book online ahead of your trip rather than buying tickets upon arrival then you can get cheaper cinema tickets at Odeon.
However, you will get charged a £1 booking fee online (included in the price you see), so do check that special offers aren’t less at the box office.
Family ticket – adults go for child prices
You get adult tickets at child prices for the same film with a family ticket. You’ll see the option at check out for an adult and child combo ticket.
Odeon Kids – £2.50
Odeon has kids screenings on Saturdays and Sundays, usually in the morning. They’re the same cheap price for both the adults and kids at £2.50 a ticket.
These aren’t usually the latest releases, though you can sometimes catch one at its final run, and remember that it is for kids, so don’t expect a silent cinema.
Odeon Silver Screenings: from £3.50 per ticket
Odeon has screenings at quieter times of the day. The tickets are from £3.50 including tea, coffee, and biscuits, served before the film.
You can book these online, which gets you the lowest price, especially if you’re a MyODEON member, detailed above.
Child & teen tickets
Many cinemas charge more for over 12s but Odeon’s runs until 14 years old. Children aged 15 and over will need to buy adult tickets.
There isn’t a student discount at Odeon however Cineworld does have one.
There isn’t a senior discount, but there are Silver Screenings, which are cheaper. More on this above.
