24-hour GIVEAWAY for 4 free movie tickets and cereal!

Hi, April the Slacker Blogger here. I know this is my excuse every time I get behind in blogging, but I've been so crazy busy lately between my Etsy shop and the Sprouts. You know what I need? A night out, perhaps to catch a good movie. I'll have to buy some Lucky Charms first, and I don't mean just for the luck I'll need to actually get a break around here.

You see, you can receive a free movie ticket when you purchase two specially marked packages of General Mills’ Cereals! After purchasing two cereals, just visit General Mills Movie Cash to enter the code found inside each box of cereal and print your free movie certificate good for admission to any movie. This promotion started back in November, so I'm not sure how long specially marked boxes of cereal will be out on the shelves. The Movie Cash website says you can enter the codes through June of next year, so keep an eye out for those boxes!

But guess what... thanks to General Mills and MyBlogSpark, you can win a prize pack right here, right now, including FOUR Movie Cash certificates. Using them is easy-peasy. Each one can be redeemed for one admission ticket (up to $12) for any showing of any movie at participating theaters. (The list of theaters is insanely long, so chances are, there's one around you!). Not only that, but it also includes a voucher for any box of General Mills cereal- yummy!

How to enter: Simply comment on this blog post with your favorite kind of General Mills cereal that you either enjoy now or when you were growing up.(Click here to see a list, midway down the page) Be sure to leave an email address if one is not listed on your profile.

Optional extra entries: Be sure to leave a separate comment for each one!
* Tell me what movie you think you might want to see using these tickets (or who you plan on giving them to).

Giveaway ends Monday (12/14) at 5pm EST, and winner will be contacted shortly after. I need the winner's information before Wednesday, so please respond ASAP. Good luck!
