Why can't I redeem my points?

If you are logged into your active Cinebuzz account before you select your session online, or present your Cinebuzz card over the counter before your transaction but you cannot redeem points for the session, it could be because either:

You do not have sufficient points for the type of session you are attempting to redeem for (eg. 600 points for standard, 900 points for Vmax, 1500 points for Gold Class).


The film is restricted from use of Cinebuzz points and marked ‘NFT.’

Event Cinemas reserves the right to impose a “no free list” or “no free tickets” restriction (NFT) to certain films and screenings in its discretion.

NFT is a restriction imposed for selected films and screenings upon their release. It means that no special complimentary coupons, Cinebuzz free tickets or offers are valid for use on that specific film or screening until the restriction has been lifted, this includes Cinebuzz points. Generally, the NFT restriction will last only 1-2 weeks after a film’s release, although there are exceptions.

However, points can be used to unlock a special priced ticket for these sessions. Please note the points used are PER ticket and you will still have to pay a discounted price.


It is a Gold Class Session after 5.00PM on a Saturday. Points cannot be redeemed for Gold Class on any sessions on Saturday after 5.00PM.
