Only Thing Better than a Good Movie

Only Thing Better than a Good Movie

Disclosure

Ever since the kids got old enough to sit through full-length motion pictures, we’ve been in heaven. If it’s a G-rated movie, chances are that we’ve been to see it… except for the occasional one that gets put on timeout because the girls weren’t behaving. Yes, we’re a timeout family. While toy timeouts work sometimes, if the kids incur a penalty when we’re en route to a movie then they are forbidden from seeing it until it comes out on DVD, VOD or TV. Other than that, movies are a huge deal for us. We go all out for popcorn and snacks, too. Because we go often enough, we even have a frequent flier pass for the movie theater – which gives us free movie passes, popcorn or a drink after a certain number of points are accumulated.Although we get some stuff free, for the most part, we’re shelling out for the trips (thank you, matinee price). If the kids are behaving, it’s a reward for everyone… It’s family time. It’s quality time. And it’s usually a lot of fun for all of us.

Then I found out that General Mills would pay for us to see a movie. And you too. The only thing better than a good movie is a good FREE movie. By any chance do you eat Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix or Reeseโ€™s Peanut Butter Puffs cereals? Well, from now until June 30, 2010, you can cash in codes that are found on specially marked boxes of those cereals. While the program allows you to cash in your codes until June 30, 2010… I didn’t find details anywhere stating how long these boxes (with codes) would be available on the shelves.

Here’s all you have to do:
Purchase specially marked boxes of the above mentioned General Mills cereals.
Enter two codes from any two specially marked boxes of General Mills cereal.
Print your free movie ticket certificate and take it to a participating theater to receive one free movie admission!

Want more than one ticket? Just purchase additional boxes of cereal. It’s that easy. If you’re a coupon shopper, you can watch for sales on General Mills cereals and use coupons. Then convert your cereal into General Mills e-Movie Cash.

We used our tickets to go see Where the Wild Things Are with the kids. It’s a good movie, but not one that has you dancing in your seats. It does, however, teach a great lesson.

How about you? Are you a movie-goer? Do you look for any particular type of movie or just go to what looks good? Have you ever wanted to see a movie but changed your mind because it got poor reviews? One of DH’s favorite movies got horrible reviews from the critics but we went to see it anyhow… and glad we did! So, maybe if you didn’t have to pay for the tickets, you would consider seeing something you wouldn’t otherwise see? Or maybe you would actually venture TO a movie while you normally wait until it’s released before you see it. Well, here’s your chance to score four free tickets, compliments of General Mills and MyBlogSpark. As a bonus, you’ll even receive a coupon for one free box of any General Mills cereal! Ready? Here’s the scoop…

The Prize: Movie Moments Prize Pack (approx value $54) including 4 e-movie cash certificates and one coupon for a box of General Mills cereal.

Participants –
…must provide a US shipping address
…must provide an email in the first comment, email me directly with an email address or have email accessible from their profile.
Sometime on December 5, 2009, two winners will be chosen at random (using random.org) from all valid comments left. Winners have 72 hours from posting/notification to respond. If winner cannot be contacted, I will move on to the next random selection.
