So my husband doesn’t read my blog. That’s okay, crafting isn’t his thing – and even the projects he enjoys, he has already seen in our house. But that means it’s safe to tell you something… he doesn’t think he is getting the Xbox One for Christmas. ;) (Oh, but if any of you readers do talk to him in real life or on social media, this is our little secret, okay?) I snagged one of the last ones at Walmart last week, and also bought him Forza Motorsport 5 to go with it, because racing games are lots of fun for all of us! Through the end of December, Walmart is running a great promotion on Forza 5 and M&M’s, because snacks and video games go great together – don’t you think?
You can get a $10 e-gift card from Walmart by buying Forza Motorsport 5 and at least $8 worth of qualifying M&M’s products. You can check out the official offer for full details, but stock up on those large and stand-up sized bags in several of the M&M varieties when you buy the game. Snap a photo of your reciept and text it to 811811, and you will get a $10 e-gift card from Walmart!
It’s so easy! Just be sure your M&M’s and Forza 5 are on the same receipt to claim the offer. They will text you back with your e-gift code!
We go through a lot of M&M’s in our house, because my daughter is 3, and 3 year olds need… incentives. Haha. A few M&M’s area nice sized treat for her, you can pour just 8 or 10 instead of giving a larger sugary snack, and it sure helps when I need to get groceries or want to encourage her to do those things she doesn’t want to do (like let me take her photo for Christmas cards, haha). I’m not encouraging you to bribe your children, I’m just admitting what parents of toddlers know already. Let’s just say – we always have M&M’s around here!
There’s also a really fun contest I want to share with you if you haven’t read about it already – there are still a couple days left to get in on the M&M’s “Gaming is Better With M” Pixel Art contest on Instagram and Twitter! Just use your M&M’s to design a pixel-style design, snap a photo, and post it with the hashtags #FueledByMM AND #Contest. I couldn’t resist entering the contest – if you didn’t see it on Instagram already, let me show you!
I know… I’m no pro artist. But it was fun.
If an Xbox One is on your little gamer’s (or big gamer’s) wish list this year, be sure to take advantage of Walmart’s awesome deal – a big bag of M&M’s for the stocking, and Forza 5 for under the tree!
I think my husband is going to love it… What do you think??
