Want a FREE night at the movies?



General Mills is doing a promotion right now when you buy two boxes of specially marked boxes of cereal, you can print up a free movie ticket. (up to $12 value) Here’s how it works: Look for either Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix or Reese’s Puffs cereal. Inside, you’ll find a code. When you have two codes – go here to enter them in and get your free movie ticket! (Click to find a list of participating theaters or for more details.) You should be able to find these boxes in stores starting the beginning of this month (November)!

To help spread the word about this promotion, General Mills, through MyBlogSpark, sent me coupons for us to head to the theater ourselves as well as a coupon for a free box of General Mills cereal. Personally, the only somewhat kid friendly movie out right now is Where the Wild Things Are, and I think it’s not something my kids would enjoy. I know for a fact that there’s a few more kid movies coming out soon. In fact the new Disney movie is due out in the middle of December: The Princess and The Frog – so I’ll be holding out a bit before we head to the theaters.

BUT! I didn’t want to wait to tell you about the promotion because I have a packet of 4 free movie tickets and a coupon for 1 free box of cereal for a GIVEAWAY! (The tickets are good until September 2010, so if you’re like me and wanting to hold out for a particular movie to be released – you’ll still be able to do that)

I’m going to keep this really simple. Each item below only counts once and is worth 1 entry into the contest. You can do just the first one – or all three – up to you.

1) (Mandatory Entry – you must at least do this one) Leave a comment on this post.
Make sure you put in a real email address (that you check often!) as this is the method I will use to contact you if you win. In your comment, I’d love to know what movie you’d want to see (or if you’re going to hold out for awhile for a particular movie to come out). Or tell me what your favorite movie is. :)

2) Tweet about this post. If you’re feeling uninspired, you can use this text exactly:

Go to the movies FOR FREE! Details and MOVIE TICKETS GIVEAWAY here: http://bit.ly/3vJGvJ Pls RT

Then come back and leave a comment telling me you did (and tell me your Twitter ID so I can see your tweet) 😀

3) If you have a blog – mention and link to this post.

Contest ends November 12th at 10pm MST. There is no purchase necessary to enter the contest. I will be using random.org to choose the winner. I’ll contact the winner via email, and he/she will have 48 hours to respond. After 48 hours, if I don’t receive a response, another winner will be chosen.

    Thank you!

    This would be great to win! I would say I would love to see 2012 with my hubby for a date night. We haven’t been to the movies since X-Mas 2008. We will be with family again this X-Mas and would love to go out for a date night to see a movie while the family watches our 2 1/2 year old and 4 month old! Please pick me!

    Nov 2, 2009

    I think I’ll hold out until something better comes along that the kids want to see.

    I would use the tickets for a date night with my husband since we have not been on a date in about 2 years! Then the other 2 tickets, I would bring my 2 year old to see Toy Story 3!

    we love the movies but rarely go, so expensive. I’d love to win this.

    I have 7 kids under the age of 13, so going to the theater for a first run movie is rare for us. My kids would love to see Toy Story 3, and 4 free tickets would help some with the cost of taking my family to see a movie. My kids would be so excited if you picked us!

    Well I dont know what movie I would see cause I have 2 little ones and who knows when the next date night will be. But, my favorite movie of all time is Legends of the Fall with Brad Pitt. My son Tristan was named after his character. LOVE that movie.

    This is a great giveaway! I never get to the movies and this prize would give me the push I need. Plus, it would keep me from going broke, at $12 a ticket.

    I’d love to see Amelia.

    I would love the tickets. I am a stay at home mom, and don’t get out that often. I would wait to see either Harry potters next movies or a kiddy one for my kids.

    I’m not sure what movie we’d want to see, but there always seems to be something. I know my son wants to see Where the Wild Things Are, so maybe that one.
