Since a new movie theater with IMAX and 3D opened up near us, the kids and I have been going to the movies quite regularly. Every time we go I seem to drop $30 to $40 on not only the movies (3D and IMAX are even more expensive than regular movies) but popcorn and drinks, too. (We try to economize by sharing, since our theater gives free refills – but still!) And with all the cool holiday movies we want to see from Fantastic Mr. Fox to Planet 51, there’s got to be a cheaper way to do things.
Now General Mills is helping to make seeing all those holiday movies a more affordable this year. You can receive a free movie ticket when you purchase two specially marked packages of General Mills cereals(Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix and Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs).
After purchasing your two cereals, visit generalmills.com/moviecash to enter the code found inside each box and print your free movie certificate good for admission to any movie. That’s it!
These would make great stocking stuffers or a great way for your spouse to take the kids to the movies while you wrap presents. Or forget the kids and go with your girlfriends to see some George Clooney movies. Just keep in mind that the certificates are only good for 60 days after you print them, so plan accordingly!
To find a participating theater near you, log on to the eMovie Cash Locator. If your favorite theater isn’t available (mine isn’t, darn it!) you can click here to email them. To find out more about how the program works, check out the FAQ page.
Disclosure: General Mills provided me with a free coupon for one box of General Mills cereal, information on the program, and four eMovie Cash certificates through MyBlogSpark.
