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)
HOW TO ENTER “MOVIE MOMENT” CONTEST:
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:

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.
