General Mills Free Movie Night


Move over busy schedule - It's Movie Time, brought to you by General Mills.

 General Mills is willing to make it easier to catch the latest blockbuster just by eating their delicious cereal!

For a limited time enjoying a night out at the movies is as simple as enjoying your favorite cereals from General Mills. With the recent releases of Breaking Dawn - Part II and Wreck-It-Ralph, it's time to spread the word that you can all go to the movies for free.
Here's how it works:
For a limited time (11/08/2012 - 12/06/2013) you can receive a free movie ticket when you purchase two specially marked packages of General Mills cereals including Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, and Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs.
After purchasing two participating cereals, visit to enter the unique code found inside each box of cereal and print-off your free Movie Cash certificate (good for one admission of up to a $12 value at participating theaters). To find a participating movie theater in your area log


I was so excited to participate in this program with General Mills and My Blog Spark. I purchase a lot of General Mills products. I eat some form of Cheerios nearly every morning. My favorite being the Honey Nut Cheerios. I've  eaten them for years. There's just something about that honey nut crunch in the morning.

I really think it's fantastic that General Mills sponsors so many movie tickets to its consumers. I'd love to see the numbers on how many movie tickets they give out during this promotion.

Nothing brings people together like the movies. Whether its parents taking their kids, grandparents with their grandkids, date night for teens or adults or just friends getting together for a few hours. The movies is the one place they can go and feel free to laugh, cry, love, hope, have edge of the seat excitement or a hair-raising scare. 


I received the tickets at a great time of the year, right before Christmas. My boyfriend, Ollie, and I generally celebrate Christmas with his oldest daughter, son-in-law and their two children a few days after Christmas due to them living a few hours away. We had them all over to my apartment  along with his 3 other grandchildren (his youngest daughter and my son were working that night) and we opened presents and had dinner. 

I had previously spoken with Ollie and let him know that I had my two free movie tickets so we decided to see if the kids and grandkids wanted to catch a movie.

Of course, they were all excited to go see a movie. The kids range in age from 10 to 17 so they all enjoy the movies and expensive snacks (Christmas money spent in one place.. I'll leave it at that). The next day, we all loaded up and headed to the local theater to catch an afternoon matinee.

The movie of choice:  THE HOBBIT!

If you haven't seen it, you should grab your tickets and go see it. We all had a great time. It's not often when you can get a group together, ranging from age 10 to 60 and have everyone enjoy the same movie and to keep the kids attention through about a 3 hour movie, at that. What a great time we had.

I know I should be showing you a picture of our fabulous bunch but it was pouring rain and no one brought umbrellas so we were not exactly at our best. Lol!

A big thanks to General Mills and MyBlogSpark for taking some of that expense for us and many others who are grabbing their free tickets.
