Summer is HERE!!!!  My kids last day of school is tomorrow, and that means playing outside, swimming all day, and staying up later than normal because they don’t have to get up early.  And staying up later means MOVIE NIGHTS!!

We have a fun room upstairs that we call the “theater room” we have a big wrap-around couch, stars on the ceiling and a awesome big screen that we love watching movies on.  In fact, most of the neighborhood kids do too 😉  My kiddos just love inviting their friends over for a movie, and as parents – we don’t mind it at all, because they all get to wind-down together.

And what fun is watching a movie without POPCORN?! We love popcorn in our house and one of our favorite ways to dress it up some is by adding melted chocolate and sprinkles on it! It’s so easy and takes less than 5 minutes, so I wanted to share our quick recipe.

I know renting movies all the time can get costly, especially if you get them from those box rental places and you forget to return it…for like a week…not like I am talking from experience or anything 😉  That’s why this summer we are taking full advantage of our free monthly movie on VUDU.

How are we getting a FREE movie from VUDU?

We are scoring not only a FREE movie (new release rental $7 value), but Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data thanks to our Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan.

So what does that mean to you?

It means that you get an awesome phone, like the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime for just $79.92 (Rollback from $99.92), start service on ANY plan today for $19.88, and enjoy unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a free movie on VUDU (new release rental $7 value) every month per line for $49.88.  Yes, you read that right, you can get started on the plan for the cost of the Starter Kit, which is on rollback for just $19.88!

There are other phones available when you head to Walmart to get started with Walmart Family Mobile, but the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime was a great price with the Rollback savings and I have always been a Samsung fan. I loved that my out of pocket was really low compared to other prepaid carriers – only $19.88 to get started. The Starter Kit is actually on rollback too, from $25.

What will you do with the money you are saving on renting movies or going to the show this summer thanks to the free movie on VUDU from the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan?
