Easy Movie Night Snack and Family Fun With Big G Cereal Movies #BigGCerealMovies #Ad

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring today’s post.   While they inspired us to have a family fun night, the experiences and opinions are all our own!

Movie Night

We love (as you can even the dogs love it ) family movie night.  We tend to sit on our living room floor (until that day we get theater seats) and have fun family movie nights.  Thanks to General Mills, and our love for cereal of course, we were able to whip up some fun, tasty movie night treats and be rewarded with a free movie to enjoy.  The Big G Cereal Movies program, lets you enjoy some of your (select) favorite cereals and receive free digital movie downloads!  We picked two of our favorite cereals for our movie night!

It’s so easy to get your free movie with the General Mills and Fox Movie Download promotion they have going on right now!

Visit the Big G Cereal Movies landing page. HD Movie Download Promotion: one 16-digit unique code is printed on the inside of each participating Big G cereal box, be sure to look for the boxes that have the Digital HD movie banner, as seen on my boxes above. Please remember that 2 codes are needed per movie download.

  • Step 1: Enter code 1 and code 2 from each cereal box
  • Step 2: Select from the 10 movies for download
  • Step 3: Choose to redeem from Target Ticket, Vudu, or Google Play. Next, select the “Redeem” button. *All movies must be downloaded prior to 8/31/2015**

Seriously, how easy is that?  For me it’s extra awesome, because our Publix has a current promotion of BOGO on the Reese’s Puffs, which is a favorite breakfast for our kids.  So I can get the two needed codes for the price of one box of cereal!  SCORE!! We chose to download Maramduke, because it is one of our family favorites!  Of course as with any good family movie night, you need a tasty treat…preferably one that is easy to make. My kids love to eat the Reese’s Puffs Movie Night Snack mix when we have family movie nights.  It’s a yummy combo of salty and sweet!  We got our recipe from the side of the Reese’s Puffs box, but adjusted it a little to our preferences!  How yummy does this look:
