“Family Flick Night” Gift Pack Giveaway

How does going to the movies for FREE sound to you?

Sounds good, uh?

I don’t know about you but I don’t remember the last time my family and I went to the movies. Number one reason: It’s quite expensive, especially when there’s five people going.  Between the movie tickets, popcorn, drinks for everyone AND candy, the price of a movie outing can easily cost approximately $60 (depending where you live).

You know for $60, you can buy a few bags of groceries, right?  That is exactly why I decided to review the new e-movie cash codes that are inside specially marked brands of Big G (General Mills) cereals, that was started in early November.

Thanks to MyBlogSpark and General Mills (Big G), my family and I were able to see Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 with the 5 e-movie cash tickets that were sent to me for free.  My kids lucked out too. They got to eat two of their favorite cereals —  a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and a box of Reese’s Puffs.

Like I said before, it’s been awhile since we’ve been to the movies so this was a very special treat for all of us.  The kids were ecstatic!  It was a great movie even though I felt like I was left hanging wanting more but I guess I’ll wait patiently for Part 2 next July (darn!). So if you’re a Harry Potter lover like us, than you’ll definitely enjoy this one, that is if you don’t mind waiting til’ next year for the finale.

How to get a FREE e-movie cash ticket:

When you purchase two specially marked packages of Big G cereals including Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Trix® (14.8 oz) and Reese´s Puffs® cereal (18 oz.), you can receive a free movie ticket by entering the two unique codes found inside each box of cereal at generalmills.com/moviecash and print out your free Movie Cash certificate (good for one admission of up to a $12 value at particiapting theaters.  To find a participating theater in your area, log onto http://emoviecash.com/dis_locator/.


One (1) lucky New York Chica reader will receive a pack of FOUR (4) e-movie cash tickets, PLUS two boxes of specially marked cereals with two codes inside the box! A total value of more than $60.00!
