General Mills Family Flick Night Giveaway!


Before I got pregnant, I wasn't a movie person. But they have represented my own little getaway since I've had the baby (not to mention during those sleepless nights when I was 8 months pregnant!) The same goes for cereal. I was DEPENDENT on cereal as my primary means of getting calcium because I refuse to drink milk sans accoutrement

This giveaway combines those warm feelings I get when I think of movie night with my family and the crunchy/cold goodness of a nice bowl of cereal. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my personal favorite. Big D is a Honey Nut Cheerios guy. I wonder what that says about our respective personalities and movie choices? Me: creative (aka somewhat, er, carefree with housework) + romantic comedies + suspense = Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Big D: no nonsense + action + documentaries = Honey Nut Cheerios.

Have you noticed how expensive it is to bring a family of four to the movies? Here in NYC, you're out of  about $85 once you buy the tickets and two large popcorns! Don't even talk to me about the $7 box of candy. With those prices and our current economy, you need all the help you can get if you'd like to go to the movies for a laugh, a good scare or a good cry.


Buy It! 

Beginning in November 2010, you can get a free movie 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.).

After purchasing two participating cereals, visit generalmills.com/moviecash to enter the unique code found inside each box of cereal and print your free Movie Cash certificate (good for one admission of up to a $12 value at participating theatres). To find a participating theater in your area, log onto http://emoviecash.com/dis_locator/. Can't wait? Enter our giveaway!

Win It!

  12. Great giveaway! We take family movie night VERY seriously in our house. I pop popcorn and serve it in reusable carnival-style popcorn containers I bought at Target. We cuddle up with no computer, phones or anything else and enjoy the movie.

    We usually watch kids/family movies that were just released (thank goodness for redbox) or watch a family movie on demand.

    As for the cereal, we munch a lot of honey nut cheerios and reese's puffs cereal. They're as great for a snack as they are for breakfast! I always pack them for road trips, too.

  17. Hi, New follower here.
    What's your cereal/movie personality?
    Well, that is an unusual and interesting question.
    I would have to say Nutty! I like crunchy-nutty cereal and rather fond of silly comedies!
    Thanks
