More Free McD’s Food

When I was eating my free weekly meal at McDonald’s yesterday I noticed a sign promoting a deal for a free Mcskillet burrito when you buy a medium or large drink on Feb. 28th or 29th.  I really don’t need to be eating more Mcd’s but I love getting free food.  I haven’t tried the Mcskillet burrito but it seems like a pretty good deal to me.  You can confirm this deal at your local McDonald’s or at their website.

Cheap Movie Tickets

Fandango is running a promotion with McDonald’s that allows you to buy a movie ticket for $1.  You have to go to their website at 12pm (pst) on Wednesdays and find out the word of the day which you then text to Fandango.  Then you will receive a text back with a promo code allowing you to buy a ticket for $1.   I did this yesterday and it wasn’t too difficult.  You need to visit the promo page to get all the details.

Also if you have a Discover card there will be a buy one get one free promo through Fandango starting December 4th.  This page will have the details.

I am a big movie fan and am always looking for ways to save money at the movies.  I usually go to the matinees but with my $1 movie ticket I’m planning to go to a late night movie.  If I would ever get smart and quit buying the large popcorn I could save a lot more money.  Every time I eat a large popcorn I get a stomachache but the next time I’m at the theater I seem to forget that and eat a large popcorn again.  Maybe now that I’ve written this down I’ll actually remember.

Redbox: I’m Loving It

You probably already know this but Redbox is an automated DVD rental machine that allows you to rent DVDs for $1 a night. The Mcdonald’s near me got a Redbox a couple weeks ago. I’d read about Redbox before but until now there hadn’t been a Redbox close enough to me to make using it practical. Now it is providing me with very cheap entertainment. The rental is already cheap at $1 a night but after renting just two DVDs they sent me a promo code for a free rental. Doing a Google search for “Redbox promo codes” revealed even more free rental codes. Since the codes are good once per credit card by switching cards I should have free movies for the rest of the summer. The only drawback is I keep buying food at McDonald’s. Once I stop doing that this will really be a good deal.
