Family movie night is our favorite way to spend time together at home. My husband and I have always been movie fans and our son has turned into one too and we love it. Renting and buying movies can add up quickly so I am always trying to find ways to save money on movies. We belong to the Scott Shared Values program since we buy many Scott Brand items like toilet tissue and paper towels. I read that Scott brand items at Walmart have special marked vouchers on them for a free Vudu movie. Since I already purchase Scott items I thought it would be a perfect time to stock up and get some free movies too.

My husband has been using Scott brand toilet tissue since we have been together (almost 15 years) its been one of the main things he wont let me get a generic or other brands for even when I find a sale and have a coupon. I buy for myself the cheaper stuff to save money but I always have to buy my husband Scott brand. Its a mine vs his battle! When the brand I have is out (which happens often since cheaper brands have less on them) I sneak to the closet to get some of his and I am always informed that it should be replaced with two rolls for the one being borrowed. This makes me laugh every time!!

I do admit his brand of Scott is better and more value for my money so I now have my own stash of Scott tp in the bathroom. The cheaper store version will have to go!

For our family movie night this week we decided to let my son select the movie. We went to Walmart to get the Scott brand toilet tissue and paper towels, to have my son see what movie he wanted and get movie watching snacks. I love the Scott select a size style of paper towel since less is wasted.

My Mom told me about Vudu and that it was simple to use. My first thought was does this need some sort of credit card, and it did not to use my free movie code. I pulled the sticker off the Scott package and redeemed the code on the back at Walmart Shared Values webpage. I created an account and searched the movies. It is an easy site to use, so glad we know about it now.

So cool! Free classic movies when you sign up to use your free code.

We entered our codes and selected Wreck It Ralph since my son has been wanting to see that movie. We had our snacks of candy and popcorn. I made little popcorn holders using Scott Paper Towels and some ribbon. I folded them like a cone and tied off the end and filled with popcorn. This was a perfect way to hold the popcorn, be able to keep hands clean after and no cleaning of popcorn bowls.

With the money we saved on watching a Free Vudu movie with the Scott Shared Values program I feel like it was a $4 coupon on the items since we already spend so much on movie watching. Its a great value! Since we purchased two Scott items we had an additional movie voucher that I used to let my son watch a Disney movie while I cleaned the house, thats a win-win!

To stay up to date on the deals offered with Scott Shared Value program you can like them on Facebook.

The Scott Shared Value program has a great coupon right now for Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful. I love that I can save money on items that are more than just Scott with the program. Saving money is my favorite way to shop!
