Receiving & Redeeming
What exactly does the recipient receive when I send an eGift Card?
After you choose the delivery date, a message is sent to the recipient informing them of your gift, with a link to retrieve it online. The link in the email goes to a page showing the eGift Card you created (the design you selected, with your recipient's name and your personalized message), its value and code number. This page also gives simple instructions for redeeming the eGift Card. Sometimes, special offers and promotions are listed on the page.
When is the eGift Card sent to the recipient?
The eGift Card alert message is sent to the recipient on the date you choose. The delivery date is pre-set to the current date, so if you do not select a different date, the alert message is sent on the same day as your purchase.
Where can I use my eGift Card?
You can use your eGift Card at any Regal Entertainment Group location. In addition, Regal Gift Cards and eGift Cards with a PIN number can be redeemed online for admission tickets at REGmovies.com, Fandango.com. No type of gift card can be used to purchase other gift cards or discount tickets.
Where are your theatres located?
Where can I find showtimes or view regular box office pricing?
Can I use part of my eGift Card online and part at a theatre?
Do I need a special printer? Do I need to print color?
No and no. Most standard office and household printers are equipped to print eGift Cards, and you do not need to print in color. Some printers produce great results, and older printers sometimes don't print certain images well, but the most important thing is that the Card Number is clear. If it is not, you may need to install a new ink cartridge.
When does the eGift Card expire?
There is no expiration date on your eGift Card. We recommend that you redeem it soon after you receive it, so you don't forget. From time to time, Regal Entertainment Group or its affiliates may offer special promotional eGift Card as a bonus or reward. Terms applicable to such promotional eGift Cards will be specified on the cards and may differ from the terms set forth above.
Can I reload my eGift Card after I've spent the full value?
What if there is a balance left on my eGift Card?
If there is a balance left on your eGift Card you can redeem it at another time. If you need to reprint your eGift Card you may do so and the balance will remain, as it is all tied to the eGift Card # and bar code.

What if someone makes a copy of my printed eGift Card?
Our state of the art technology inhibits fraud, but you must safeguard your eGift Card for your own protection. If someone makes a copy of your Gift Card and redeems it for the full amount, your copy will have no value. No matter how many copies are made, the value of the eGift Card is tied to the Gift Card number. When that number is used, the value of the purchase is deducted from the eGift Card. If you suspect that someone has copied or stolen your eGift Card, contact Customer Support immediately via email at email@example.com or by phone at 866-256-9218 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM EST, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Any value that has not been used can be re-issued to you in a new Gift Card.
Do I receive credits for purchasing eGift Cards
No, credits are not earned when purchasing eGift Cards. However, members can earn credits when redeeming eGift Cards. Simply present your Regal Crown Club card along with your eGift Card.
A. Accumulation and Redemption of Credits
Regal Crown Club members receive 100 credits per dollar spent on purchases at the box offices and concession stands of participating theatres by presenting their Regal Crown Club Card to the cashier during the transaction (or, when purchasing tickets at an in-theatre kiosk station at participating theatres, by entering their Regal Crown Club Card number or swiping their Regal Crown Club Card when prompted during the ticket purchase process), subject to the following terms:
Members DO NOT earn credits for admissions obtained by redeeming complementary passes or emergency tickets or (ii) group sales or otherwise discounted tickets, but they DO receive credits on any fees paid to upgrade such passes/tickets.
Members DO NOT earn credits when purchasing eGift Cards, but they DO earn credits when redeeming eGift Cards.
For the purpose of calculating credits earned at the box office, multiply transaction totals by 100.
- Example: Transaction Total = $7.50; Credits Earned = 750.
- Example: Transaction Total = $6.25; Credits Earned = 625.
How do I request a donation of gift cards?
As a company and through the Regal Foundation, we have proudly established relationships with numerous organizations that benefit from our National Pass Program. Our commitment remains to support charities based in the communities our theatres serve through national projects which benefit multiple groups across the country.
We consider this to be the most productive way to allocate movie passes throughout the communities in which we are located. Accordingly, we do not accept requests for pass donations.
