Need some weekend entertainment ideas? #TysonFreeMovieNight

Every Sunday night, almost without fail, my family and I sit down for a family movie night. We’ve been doing this since my son was 18 months old and could handle focusing on something longer than 20 minutes. To be honest, in the beginning, it was something that my husband and I did for ourselves, and now it’s morphed into this wonderful tradition. It’s kind of a nice way to go into the week; rather than dreading Sunday night and the impending Monday morning, our Sunday Family Movie Night gives us all something to look forward to.

Since it’s become our tradition we tend to fall into the same old routine of popcorn and smoothies. Do not be impressed by the word smoothie because by smoothie I mean ice cream blended with some juice concentrate and perhaps some frozen fruit. I wouldn’t call it Pinterest-worthy by any means but then again does it need to be? All my kids want is some time together with my husband and I watching a movie that appeals to them. We try not to be distracted and they try to sit through the whole thing but sometimes it doesn’t happen and that’s okay.

Recently I heard about Tyson® Products ‘Winter to Go’ offer with Redbox  at Walmart and it sounded so up my alley. It’s really simple: Buy two Tyson,  State Fair®, or Jimmy Dean® product, take a photo of your receipt and upload it to – then after that you’ll be sent two promo codes each good for a free movie night from Redbox!* Easy peasy!


Movie Pairings with Tyson Foods

Obviously, this is dependent on what is in at the Redbox kiosk at your participating Walmart Supercenters and/or Walmart Neighborhood Markets, but here’s what I’m thinking. Let me know what you think of my movie and foodie pairings in the comments below!
