Birthday Countdown - Giveaway 6

For the scoop on why I'm going all of these giveaways, click here.

I'm doing a week of giveaways just for y'all! Each day will be a different item. I'm giving away some of my favorite things. You can enter each giveaway as many times as you want. Yep, that's right. But, you have to leave a meaningful comment. Not just "pick me, pick me!" Compliments will score you brownie points. Telling me about your favorite birthday memory is a good one. What you like to give/get for birthdays are also good. Anything that you want to tell me.

All giveaways are sponsored by yours truly. All of these birthday giveaways will end at midnight on August 19th (my actual birthday) and winners will be emailed and announced here on the 20th. Good luck and make sure you check back daily for the newest giveaway announcement.

Giveaway Day 6

Most of my regular readers know how much I adore movies! If I could afford it (and had the time), I would be in a movie theater at least once a week, watching a feature on the big screen. There's just nothing like it!

My giveaway today is a $10 giftcard for Fandango. This is the service that I use to purchase a lot of my movie tickets online, especially if it's for a feature that I think might sell out. It's super easy to use and I hope one lucky winner will enjoy it!

THIS ONE! This one is screaming for my husband's stocking. I can just picture it sticking up on Christmas morning...

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Or maybe my dad? He's a movie dude. And IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. I could attach it to some gift cards for popcorn and voila! Gift achieved.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Dang. I JUST. CAN'T. STOP.

Please know that I hope my harassment on your posts is intended to make your birthday special and fun. Really.

HAVE A GREAT BIRTHDAY!!

Heather said...

Hmmm, I could save these for November 20th.

I hope you're having fun with this giveaway, 'cause I'm feeling a little guilty that you're giving presents instead of receiving them...

Syl (previously known as Shib) said...

Favroite movie of all times: The Story of Us.

Next movie to watch: the Hurt locker.

Lula! said...

We saw G.I. Joe on Saturday night and it was surprisingly entertaining. Love me some Channing Tatum!!!!

Jane In The Jungle said...

OK this would be one way to take all 4 kids to the movie!!!!

Shannon said...

As you know, I've been watching trailers for some upcoming movies...

I really want to see "Couples Retreat". That one looks hilarious. And I think "It's Complicated" and the Aaron Eckhart/Jennifer Aniston (can't remember the name) one look good, too.

Of course, "New Moon", but that's a given...

Shannon said...

Are we still on for seeing "Time Traveler's Wife" with Kat?

Shannon said...

I could've just totally sent that last question to you in an email, but I've got to get some entries in! HA!

Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom said...

Birthday Eve, what-what!! ;P Hope you're gearing up for some first-class birthday pampering over there... you deserve it!!

*birthday dance*

Shannon said...

Any plans for your bday?

Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom said...

Fandango really is great, my boyfriend and I are big fans. And there's a TON of movies coming out soon to go see... Hurrah for movie watching! And birthdays! And movie watching on your birthday!! You should totally do that btw...

cdziuba said...

What a fun giveaway, I'd use it for date night!

Anonymous said...

oooh!!! Date night!!! I'd surprise my bf and not tell him where we were going...

mzpaw@yahoo.com

OH yeah!! Happy B-Day!

Amber said...

I would use this to take my mom out to see Julie & Julia!
Thank you for the giveaway :)

Amy said...

Oh - Time Travelers Wife is calling my name.....!

Brandy said...

I used fandango for Twilight tickets last year. It was a bit more expensive but I wanted to be sure to get seats on opening night.

And we all know how that movie worked out...

Brandy said...

Have you realized that New Moon premiers the weekend AFTER EE?? Wouldn't that have been great to go together.

I'm crushed.

Heather22 said...

We see most of our movies through netflix, but lately there have been so many good movies out there that we can't wait for them to come out in video. I'd put these to use going to see District 9 or Final Destination 4.
Thanks!

Jen said...

You've been having some really fun giveaways this week! If I won I would use gift certificate to see District 9. I keep hearing great things about it.

Pat said...

My husband loves to go to the movies.
This would be great.

SheilaBee said...

I love going to the movie also but cant take my husband(he falls asleep when he gets still and snores so loud that people look at us funny,so embarassing) I have to take daughter or BFF.

Amber said...

My birthday falls on Leap Day (Feb. 29th) so it's rare that I even get to celebrate on the actual day. It doesn't involve movies, but when I was a little girl, my dad used to wake me up right at midnight so we could celebrate at 12:00 exactly and get just a tiny bit of birthday before it was 12:01 and March 1.

Sunnyvale said...

It would be a treat to "go to the movies" instead of popping in a DVD at home

CaraBee said...

We have managed to see three movies this month thanks to some enthusiastic grandparents who can't get enough of their grandbaby, giving us a night, or three, off. I just adore the movies.

Shannon said...

More I want to see:

The Young Victoria

The Boys Are Back (the trailer made me cry!)

Law Abiding Citizen

The Lovely Bones

Brothers

Girl, we are going to be having lots of mom-dates!!!

rskmom said...

Everything we see is kid related, lol. We saw the new Ice Age movie a few weeks ago and it was very cute!

demmi said...

happy birthday no matter how old I get I want cake and ice cream for my birthday

Guinn Girls said...

OH would love to have this for a date night. Not something we ever get to do! To many good movies out right now.

agordon10 said...

we are having a birthday party at the theater for my daughter this month!

js22 said...

ooh I love movies! My biggest dilemma is which one to see!!

Thanks for the giveaway!
email in blogger profile.

Kat said...

Why don't you and Shannon live closer?? Are we still going to see TTW this coming weekend?

Kat said...

Oh, I went on a mom date over the weekend. With my mom. And Lizzy. We saw Julie and Julia. It was fabulous!

Kat said...

You would not believe the number of previews we saw before the movie!

Oh...that Sandra Bullock movie - Blind Side - made me cry during the previews. I can't wait to see that one.

Kat said...

Or that new Meryl Streep/Alec Baldwin movie. It's Complicated? Is that what it's called?

He has aged well. I like him better older. And chunky.

Why can't women be more attractive as older and chunky? I belive that is a whole nother post...

cookiert said...

I really want to go see Julie & Julia! All I have seen over the past few months is kids' movies. That said, Up was really good!

Anonymous said...

Sonya said...

Hubby and I have been to about 4 movies in the last 6 years, so free movies would enable us to go again!

ShesAnAngel said...

I love to take my kids to whatever movies they want to see..I too love movies and I can't wait to see Final Destination 4, it's coming out in a couple of weeks!!!

justine417@comcast.net

ShesAnAngel said...

I do use Fandango when I think it might sell out, like when I took my kids to see UP, they were waiting and really excited cause it was the first one in 3D...

justine417@comcast.net

ShesAnAngel said...

I'll be taking my daughter to see New Moon even tho I'm not the biggest fan of those movies...but we definitely will be going Fandango and we'll probably see it at midnight opening night, we're such suckers ;)

justine417@comcast.net

idahomom said...

I still haven't seen the Harry Potter movie.

mverno said...

Happi Shopr said...

Hubby so wants to see GI Joe. trinitygsd at yahoo dot com

Dolphin Girl said...

If it wasn't so pricey, I too would go to the movies once a week. It is so fun. My hubby loves to go to the movies too!

mmentor said...

Charity said...

You are not alone,we are a movie family. It' the greatest thing to do.

Molly K said...

About once a month my 5 yr old and I have a date night and go to a movie. I have never used Fandango but would love to give a try.

kristen said...

oh yes keith urban!

RachelV said...

I love comedies and romance films. I'm such a boob, so no thrillers or horror movies for me.

Hope you have a good birthday! Mine's this week also . . . not really looking forward to it though.

Jen B said...

I love to go to the movies, but rarely get to go see anything that isn't a kid movie. Before we had our son, my husband and I would go to the movies at least once a week.
Thanks!

amyd said...

Oneangel said...

I love going to the movies. Sounds like a date nite for me.

Chelle said...

Ooohh! This giveaway is great! I would give it to my husband to get away from this house of girls...ha!

Chelle said...

Or I may keep it for myself...I would love to see My Sister's Keeper...or maybe some other girlie movie :)

Debo said...

I'm dying to see Julie and Julia!!!!! I don't see movies in the theatre much due to budget issues. But once in awhile I just can't wait for the video. This would indeed be a treat.

wendy said...

I love to get gift cards for my birthday!

"There's a fandago loose in the theatre!" My husband and I say that all the time...in the funny little English accent.

Taminar said...

Happy Birthday! We don't get out to the movies often, and winning some free tickets would be a good excuse.

Anonymous said...

I would love to go see New Moon when it comes out. It premieres in my town...so I am hoping to see Mr. Sexy Vampire.

Marianna said...

I never even thought of buying movie tickets online - what a great idea! Happy birthday!

AmberRose95 said...

We love to go to the movies, but it's sooooo expensive! My husband passed away almost 10 years ago and being a single mom to a teenage son is difficult enough without having to buy the extras that all teenagers want. This would really help the next time I have to hear (with the attitude, of course) "But MOOOOMMMM, EVERYONE ELSE is going, why can't I?!
Thank you for the contest--and Happy Birthday by the way!

Kate said...

I love going to the movies- there are always interesting movies out there. Happy birthday again and I hope you have fun!

strycker@slu.edu

Rebecca Graham said...

Let's go to the movies! I want to see Julia and Julia.

Girly Remix said...

I haven't used Fandango yet! But we're definately movie goers!!!

Steph said...

There are so many good chick flicks right now that I'd love to use this on! I tried Fandango for the first time a couple of months ago and couldn't believe how easy it was!

Erica C. said...

On my birthday, I prefer just to have a "me" day. Maybe get my nails done and get some dinner...nothing fancy.

iggysaysno said...

I would love to go to the movies! Maybe try and convince the hubby it's FREE!!!! That would help, lol

Tina12312 said...

I'm with you! I could go to the movies every day if time and money allowed. Nothing like the big screen and seeing a new movie. Thank you!

jennem said...

This would be great! I want to see that new movie Paper Hearts.

buzzd said...

Birthdays should be all about you. I love going to the movies on my birthday. I didn't get to see the Harry Potter movie because no one would go with me. :( So many great movies out now.

degood said...

Oh, I really want to see the new movie based on the book The Time Traveler's Wife.

Linda said...

I haven't been to a movie in years, this would be great!

skatalack said...

my best birthday was i received several of the old style tonka truck that were made out of steel. I spent days out in the yard.

Meaghan F. said...

I love going to the movies! I just saw the new Harry Potter with my boyfriend and nieces last month. I'm going back to college soon and I won't see my nieces as much, so I promised them we'd go to the movies once a month... I don't think my wallet can take it!

carissaad said...

So many movies I would like to see.

It's been a really long time since I've been to the movies. My brother and I wanted to see G.I. Joe, but we both wound up working.

naynays1 said...

I really enjoy movies and this would be fun to win. I actually believe I haven't gone out to see a movie in about a year. OMG!

chazvgo said...

Happy Birthday! I would love to win so my hubby and I can have a Date Night :)

rosannepm said...

I'm with you. I'd much rather go to the movies than do just about anything else.
rosans4@cocmast.net

Would love to win these and use them to take the kids to see A Christmas Carol in November!

Thanks

Deb said...

I haven't been to the movies in ages, but my mom and aunt and I are going to plan a girls night out to see Julie and Julia. We are all big fans of cooking and cooking shows and this movie looks so fun.

Miranda said...

This would be great for my daughters upcoming birthday!!

Shannon said...

I totally know what I would use this on...

taking Shane to see HP6. I can't believe he hasn't wondered why I've not been pestering him to go...

kathy pease said...

barbara said...

If I won, I'd go see The Time Traveler's Wife. Since it's only enough for one ticket, then I won't feel bad that nobody in my family wants to see it with me!

Heather said...

I'm a sucker for 'a day away' types of gifts. Treat me to a spa day, a movie and shopping pass, etc!
