Should I buy AMC stock and join the benefits of an official shareholder? It’s been quite a couple of years for the movie theater chain.

They had to deal with a complete shutdown during Covid-19, and then the company experienced a huge surge of enthusiastic new stockholders driven by social media.

Now, AMC is trying to connect with all these new stockholders by directly offering them perks including free popcorn.

Note: This isn’t investment advice, but it is a heads-up about a new layer of AMC deals.


AMC is giving investors a free large popcorn this summer.

As part of their new Investor Connect program, AMC has announced that they’ll be giving shareholders special perks — and the first perk is a free large popcorn.

The freebie hasn’t gone live yet, but it’s expected in June before the summer movie season kicks off in earnest.


Opt into the AMC freebies through your Stubs rewards account.

If you’re an AMC fan, chances are you’re already a member of their rewards program, AMC Stubs.

Log in to your Stubs account (or sign up for a new account), and in the profile info section, check the box indicating that you’re an investor to join Investor Connect.

Any goodies you get from being an investor will be added to your Stubs rewards.



Cost to join the investor club? $1.00.

AMC stock has jumped from $1.91/share a year ago to about $50.00 as of June 3, 2021.

You can buy AMC stock from a number of investment firms, and some (like Robinhood) let you buy a small portion of a share — for as little as $1.00.

AMC hasn’t straight-up said you have to own a full share of AMC to participate in Investor Connect, and there’s no verification process, so you’re probably good to go, even if you own 2% of one share.


Keep getting free popcorn with AMC Stubs.

While you’re waiting for whatever other perks AMC hands out to investors, take advantage of a bunch of bonuses as part of the AMC Stubs rewards program. Here’s what the base level gives you:

  • Waived online ticketing fees (for 4 or more tickets)
  • Discount Tuesdays ($5 movies)
  • Free large popcorn refills
  • Free large popcorn on your birthday
  • Free wifi in theaters
  • Exclusive offers, screenings, and more
  • 20 points per $1 spent — and at 5,000 points you get a $5 coupon
