Thrifty Thursday- Disney Movie Rewards

Cash in those rewards numbers! 

Before I get in to this post I want to say that these opinions are totally my own. I wasn't asked by Disney to write about it or anything. This is just something great I wanted to share. 

How many Disney movies do you own? 5? 10? A million? That's us. We have a ton of Disney movies. I have always ignored that slip of paper that comes in every case that has the magic code on it. I'm not too big on following up with stuff like that, it always seems to slip through the cracks.

For Christmas last year my kids loaded up on Disney movies. Disney XD got all of the Pirates of the Carribean movies, and Disney Jr. got Up, Wreck-It Ralph, The Incredibles, Wall-E , and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. That's 9 movies in one day! I figured I should go ahead and log on to the site to put them in. That ended up being almost 1,000 points! I decided to go through our movies to plug in all the codes I could find. Now as soon as I get the movie I plug in the reward number and make sure that movie is counted. Plus, once you sign up every now and then you get an email with special offers or free reward numbers.

We have already redeemed some points for a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Grand Opening trading pin, and received a Mickey trading pin for just being a member. 

So, why should you sign up for one more thing? What are the perks? Well...

  • Free stuff! I mean really free. Like the Mickey trading pin just for being a member.
  • Rewards points add up faster than you think they will. There are some really great things to redeem for too. {You can get $50 Delta voucher for only 1700 points, an Olaf hoodie for 1850, or a wide selection of movies starting at 650 points!}
  • DVD's are worth roughly 100 points, Blu-Ray is around 150. Each movie has it's own point value, but you can get the idea of how fast they can add up. 
  • By putting in your Magic Rewards Number you register that movie as one you own. This makes it so easy to order a replacement disc {$6.95 for DVD, $8.95 for Blu-Ray} when one of your kids inevitably sticks it in the recliner then opens said recliner scratching it beyond belief. Wait, that doesn't happen to everyone, just me?
  • IT'S TOTALLY FREE!!! You dont pay a membership fee or anything. 
So if I have convinced you to start adding up your reward points gather up all of your magic codes and sign up for an account here. You can do it from your phone but I find it way easier to do it from my computer.

ALSO- The Disney Movie Rewards facebook page just hit 2 million likes. 2 MILLION! To celebrate they are offering 75 bonus points. You can click this link to get your bonus points. Hurry though, the offer expires on 9/14/14.

Totes worth it guys!

161 days until the Princess Half Marathon weekend kicks off. The first race is the 5k which is the race I will be running. I'm so super stoked to go to Disney and run through Epcot. I am not stoked however to run through Epcot. As you read in my last post I hate running.

Whatever Wednesday- Jess from Recycl EARS

The coolest ears you have ever seen!!!

WOW! I am so stoked today to feature Jess from Recycl EARS.  I came across this page on Facebook a few weeks ago.  Since I started following it I have found myself hoping  for new posts from Recycl EARS owner Jess. She makes some of the most creative Mickey ears I have ever seen! These are so super cool. I mean really, they are each their own little works of art. Don't believe me? Check out her Facebook page here, Website here, and on Instagram here. I asked Jess if she would be willing to do an interview for me and she happily agreed. There's a ton of eye candy in this post for you to enjoy and let me tell you- it was hard to pick which pictures went into this post. I could have added so many more!
