T-Mobile took to its official newsroom on February 12 to reveal a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox that will allow the carrier's subscribers to get a great deal on tickets to see the new Jennifer Lawrence movie, Red Sparrow. Specifically, by accessing the T-Mobile Tuesdays application on February 27, customers will be able to buy a ticket for just $4. That's a huge discount over the usual cost to go see a movie, even if users will need to download a separate application - namely, Atom Tickets - to redeem their ticket. In conjunction with the exclusive offer, T-Mobile CEO John Legere also tweeted a 90-second sneak peek of the movie earlier in the day for anybody interested in seeing what the movie is all about.
However, the promotion goes a bit further than that since it also includes a unique opportunity for interested participants to take a trip to Washington D.C., including what the companies call the ‘secret agent’ VIP treatment. Starting on February 13, Twitter users and T-Mobile customers alike can enter for a chance to win via either the T-Mobile Tuesdays application or on Twitter. Unfortunately, the announcement doesn't specify how Twitter entries will work and the official page detailing the company's contests does not include the new promotion, as of this writing. Presumably, an entry will require the use of hashtags, tagging Twitter or Twentieth Century Fox on the site, visiting the associated pages on Twitter, or a combination of those. More information will likely be added before the contest begins. At any rate, the lucky winner of the contest and one guest will be given luxury accommodations for three nights in Washington D.C. They'll also be given a tour of the International Spy Museum and a private tour of local spy-related locations led by a former C.I.A. agent. Aside from that, the winner will be given an opportunity to try out state-of-the-art spy equipment, among other things.
Aside from needing a separate application to actually get the ticket, there are one or two caveats to consider with this new promotion. For starters, ticket codes need to be claimed by February 28 at 4:59 a.m. Eastern Time and redeemed by March 5 before 5:59 a.m. Eastern Time. There is also a limit of one code per ticket order, so users hoping to take friends or family will need separate orders for each code received from the carrier. That most likely means only one code will be given out per subscriber device, as well. Finally, because the show has a firm 'R' rating, users will need to be 18-years-old or older to take part.
