In my context, Amortir means to compensate the cost of something by making the most of it.

For example,
a movie ticket costs 5 dollars. But the theater also sells a 50 dollar season ticket which makes it possible to watch an unlimited number of movies for one year. I decide to buy the season ticket.
In this case, if I go to the theater more than 10 times, I will "amortir" the cost of my season ticket.

Another example,
If I go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, the more I eat, the more I will "amortir" the price that I paid to go to that restaurant.

I have come up with several solutions:
-If I go to the theater more than 10 times, I will recoup the cost of my season ticket
-If I go to the theater more than 10 times, I will make my season ticket pay for itself.
-I will recoup the cost of my season ticket (after seeing/in) ? 10 movies
-I will make my season ticket pay for itself (after seeing/in) ? 10 movies

Which ones are correct ?

    Toutes sont correctes nhat.

    Aussi possible: ' ... the ticket will have paid for itself' et ' ... will have been worthwhile'

    J'ai aussi entendu 'rentabiliser' dans ce sens.
