Do you have a gamer on your Christmas shopping list? If you do chances are they have the new Xbox One and games on their wish list. My husband has been talking about this new gaming system since the moment it was released and how we need to upgrade. He currently plays on a Xbox 360 which was his Christmas gift quite a few years ago. And ok, I’ll admit it…. the Xbox One does look like fun for the whole family. One game in particular that I’d like to play is Forza Motorsport 5… because who doesn’t love racing?!
It’s a well known fact that gaming systems and their accessories are pricey so if there is a way to save a little bit of cash on this gift ya better believe I am going to do it. And of course I am going to share with my readers how to do it too. The good news is that it’s really easy – simply Buy, Snap, Redeem.
Head to your local Walmart and BUY the Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One game and participating M&M’s* products totaling at least $8. You must purchase these at the same time so that they are on the same receipt. Since you will have to pay for the video game in the electronic department make sure to swing by the candy aisle first so you can pay for both together.
Next you will need to circle the qualifying items on your receipt and SNAP a picture using your phone. Text this picture and the word “M&M” to 811811. You will receive a reply confirming the receipt has been submitted for processing and to expect a confirmation text within 48 hours.
Roughly 18 hours later I received my reply. Once your receipt is validated you will receive a code which you can REDEEM at Better with M for a $10 Walmart eGift card. You can then use your eGift card online or in store by printing it out at either Walmart or Sam’s Club. Plus those M&M’s would make a perfect stocking stuffer!
But if you’re like me and just have to bust that bag open to get to all that chocolatey goodness then I have something else fun to share with you…. because it’s always fun to play with your food (no matter what your mom might have told you growing up, hehe).
Simply open your bag of M&M’s and get creative by making some edible pixel art. Once your design is complete snap a picture with your phone and post to Instagram and Twitter using the hash tags #FueledbyMM and #contest. This contest is running now through December 18th and the lucky winner will receive a new Xbox One Gaming With M pack which includes the new Xbox One entertainment system, Forza Motorsport 5 game, and a 14oz bag of M&Ms candy. Each entrant can enter up to 3 times per day… check out two of my entries which were inspired by a Xbox One game – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – Spider Man & Iron Man. Pretty good, right?!
So what are you waiting for? Give that gamer in your life a very merry Christmas by picking up Forza Motorsport 5 and some yummy M&M’s which will also score you a $10 Walmart eGift Card. Happy Holidays!
