As would be expected, Fandango users are highly
attracted to movie rewards and are a valuable audience
to attract. They tend to skew younger (millennials),

on shopping behavior than the average shopper.
Fandango rewards proved equally attractive in a
variety of formats. Shoppers evaluated three Fandango
branded rewards (a multi-brand reward, a no purchase

reward). About half of shoppers would participate in
any of the Fandango rewards formats. Additionally,
one-third of shoppers find a Fandango movie reward a
highly appealing alternative to cash discounts.
