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.
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.
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.
