Why use Google & Apple Wallet at Studio Movie Grill?

Digital wallets have afforded us many advantages over the physical wallets of old, and these benefits really come in handy when shopping at Entertainment brands like Studio Movie Grill. While some people still prefer to carry an actual wallet for things like cash and coins, there are just some things that digital wallets do better. Since Studio Movie Grill is known for maintaining several touchpoints with its customers via loyalty offers, gift cards, and multiple payment methods, you'll want to have one central place to access and keep track of everything. That's where your digital wallet comes in.

How to Add Studio Movie Grill to Google & Apple Wallet

  • 1. Find Studio Movie Grill on SoLoyal.

  • 2. Create a new SMG Access account, or link your existing account.

  • 3. When the linking process is complete tap 'Add to Google or Apple Wallet.'

  • 4. SMG Access will appear in your wallet under SoLoyal.

  • 5. Your loyalty balance will be updated automatically when you shop at Studio Movie Grill.

Adding Items

Any dynamic information that needs to be updated frequently requires a fully-integrated digital solution, and communications from Studio Movie Grill are no exception. Things like your loyalty program status, gift card balances, or tailored offers all seem to fit just a little bit better in your digital wallet. Studio Movie Grill usually communicates this info via email or their own app and website, but those distribution channels are limited by how far we customers are willing to go in order to use them. Here are some examples where using a digital wallet at Studio Movie Grill gives you a distinct advantage over a physical wallet.

Adding SMG Access Loyalty Program Info

Studio Movie Grill may send you loyalty account updates via email, but this is usually sorted into the 'promotions' folder along with more marketing-oriented communications from other Entertainment brands. Since your email service provider decides what content goes into which folder, there's a good chance you'll miss these important messages from SMG Access. Adding your loyalty account to your Google or Apple Wallet means you'll always get important account notifications directly on your phone. You'll never miss them because no filters are applied. This means you'll take full advantage of the SMG Access benefits like Earn movies & meals, Advance promotional screenings, Special discounts, $10 eBonus Card at every 1,000 points, and 50 bonus points upon sign-up.

In addition to being sent via email, information about your SMG Access account can also be found in the Studio Movie Grill app. However, with around half of all shopping being done on desktop, a large number of consumers won't even be prompted to install the Studio Movie Grill app. And even if they are invited to do so, only around 40% of them will complete the installation. From there, an even smaller subset will open the app and begin using it to access their loyalty information. In contrast, Google or Apple Wallet comes pre-installed on your phone so there's no cumbersome app installation process to contend with. Your SMG Access account will be easily accessible at all times.

You'll have access to real-time information about your points, rewards, and the 2 status levels that are offered by SMG Access. You can see how close you are to earning your Earn movies & meals reward and how to ensure you're maximizing all your benefits. SMG Access has 8 recurring benefits and 1 rewards that continually keep you engaged as a loyalty member. Once you add your account to your digital wallet, you'll always be kept up to date about when these rewards are coming and when they expire.

Adding Studio Movie Grill Gift Cards

You can also purchase and store Studio Movie Grill gift cards within Google & Apple Wallet. We're not just talking about barcodes that you can scan when shopping in-store. We're talking about real-time gift card balance updates that continually change as you make purchases. Currently, in order to find your Studio Movie Grill gift card balance you'd have to head over to the Studio Movie Grill website and look for their gift card balance checker tool. That's the same process for other brands such as Williams Sonoma, Atlanta Bread Company, and Lego. Once you find the gift card checker, you're required to enter your card's serial number and pin number in order to see your balance. Obviously this is a process that you'd be required to do over and over again in order to stay on top of your gift card balance. But integrating your Studio Movie Grill gift card with your Google & Apple Wallet means you just have to link the card once. After that, you'll be notified of your balance through your digital wallet's native push notifications. SoLoyal makes it really easy to do this as part of the account linking process.

Adding Special Offers from Studio Movie Grill

Studio Movie Grill sends special offers as often as once every 7 days, which is typical for Entertainment brands. But that makes it hard to stay on top of a revolving door of promotions, especially when they're disseminated via various channels from Studio Movie Grill. These include SMS, email, and notifications from the Studio Movie Grill app. When you add Studio Movie Grill to your digital wallet you'll see your offers right there on your phone. And when offers change, you'll be updated immediately. This ensures you'll never miss an offer, whether it's exclusively for SMG Access members or just a general promotion for all customers.

How to Use Google & Apple Pay at ​​Studio Movie Grill

Even when brands don't explicitly accept Google & Apple pay, you can usually configure your digital wallet's NFC technology in order to add a credit card and use it to pay. Studio Movie Grill may allow you to use your native credit card via Google or Apple wallet as long as it is properly configured. Here's how to add your credit card to both wallet types in order to pay at Studio Movie Grill. Contact Studio Movie Grill support 469-405-8529 with any issues.
