How To Access PVR coupons with a credit card?
You might be thinking about how to access PVR coupons with a credit card – well, the officials have made some documentation and rules for doing so. Let us discuss them.
- First, you have to make some transactions using a credit card, so the coupon is gifted as a reward.
- Second, you have to become eligible for getting a PVR coupon. And if that happens, you will receive notifications in your registered mobile number via SMS and get mail regarding the free coupon.
- The coupon code is not valid for a whole year!! Within the next two billing cycles, it will expire.
- When you got the SMS, you are sure that you will get a free ticket or coupon. To claim the reward, you have to send an SMS to 5676788, having subjected the first three letters of the current month. For example, this is April month – so you should send ‘APR’.
- If you have the net banking feature activated, then you have to log in to your account. And then, look for the ‘Credit card’ option, then select the ‘PVR coupon claim’ option.
- If you don’t have a savings account in the bank, you can still log in using the ‘Forgot password’ option.
But here is not the end of the discussion! You have got the coupon, but how to use it? Well, let’s see:
- First, you have to visit https://www.pvrcinemas.com. Then select your preferred movie and book your seat, but you cannot book for Gold and Europa!
- Second, while paying for the ticket, select the MCOUPON option – it will be available on the payment page.
- Third, you have to fill in some details like the last 4 digits of your credit card and the last 5 digits of your mobile number linked with your account.
- Pay using your PVR coupon and enjoy!
Point to be noted that, maximum waived off money is Rs 400 per ticket.
Surprisingly, this card does not lag in terms of fees!

How To Apply For This Card?
I don’t know whether you are interested in applying for this card or not. Because if you ask me what would I do, the answer is a single word – “no”! Anyway, let’s discuss the point for the interested one.
- Go to the official website www.kotak.com.You will find some questions are asking for details. Fill very carefully.
- In the second step, you have to fill in some other fields – mobile number, PAN number, pin code, Net annual income, and so on. Keep all the documents ready in your hand to avoid an error.
- Fill the forms very carefully. And also, read all the disclaimer terms and conditions before applying.
I am not describing all the points for applying for the card. It is a straightforward process. Fill in the form and enter the next form by clicking on the “next” button. Remember- forms will be rejected in case of any false information.
Some hardest competitors – let’s judge this credit card with them.
1. How much coverage will I get in case of losing my card?
It depends on the type of card – means if you have a Kotak Platinum PVR card, you will get Rs 75000, and if you have a Kotak Gold PVR card, you will get Rs 50000 per year as insurance.
2. Can I use the PVR coupons and free tickets to all cinema hall?
No, you cannot avail of this offer at PVR IMAX, Director’s cut, 4DX, Playhouse, Opulent and P[XL].
3. If I lose the card, how I will get insurance?
You have to report to the bank within 7 days of losing the card. You can email the bank, but it is better to report via contacting the customer care number 1860-266-2666.
4. How to use this credit card?
The idea is pretty simple. Except for the listed or selected cinema halls, you can log on to PVR cinemas’ official website and book your preferred seat. On the payment page, you can use the MCOUPON tab.
5. Who should opt for this card?
Some people love to enjoy movies and visit cinema halls frequently to fulfil their hobby, entertainment. But sometimes it becomes a problem for them to manage their budget in the luxurious cinema hall. So, this card may be a helpful solution for them because it gives up to 3 free movie tickets in a sufficient month.
Again, we don’t want to sacrifice other features, and the most important thing of concern is security. The Kotak bank is offering the best security among all the free movie ticket offering credit cards. So, it is better to apply for this card if you are a hardcore movie lover.
Here, the time comes for the conclusion. After the long discussion of facilities and disadvantages, one question comes to our mind: “whether should I apply for the card or not?” Same questions have arisen previously and now also. But at this point, I think it is time for my opinion.
As a middle-class family, what if I should choose this card or not. I would always say “no”. Because I think I don’t need to go to the movie frequently. So I missed that reward, and no reward is left for me. And seriously, this reward is not sufficient to attract not only me but any middle-class family also. It is better not to use a credit card than to use this credit card!
I hope you have cleared all the doubts by reading this article. Thank you and see you again later!
