Win a Make-Your-Own Dinner & a Movie! - GIVEAWAY!!!

If you live in the Southeast (like me!) and shop at Publix (like me!) you may have noticed the new Blockbuster Express Kiosks at the front of the store. Well, Blockbuster and Publix are teaming up to offer one lucky winner a customizable movie night.

With a free rental code to Blockbuster Express and a $20 gift card to Publix, you can create your own movie night either for yourself for a mini escape after the holidays or a movie night for your family!
They were kind enough to send me a free rental code and gift certificate too, and here's what I thought:

Publix Pros:
  • Convenient and close to my home
  • Great deli with plenty of ready-made meals, so I don't have to cook
  • The cleanest and friendliest grocery store in my area
Publix Cons:
  • Prices tend to be a little bit higher than some of the other stores around here
  • Aside from the deli, my local Publix has very few other ready-made options
Blockbuster Express Pros:
  • Very simple interface
  • Huge selection of DVDs
  • Will email you with your receipt and confirmation that your movie is returned
  • Very affordable (only $1 per night)
Blockbuster Express Cons:
  • Even with the coupon code you are required to provide a credit card
  • You have to park and go into the store to use the kiosk
OVERALL:
I was pleased with my experience. I am already a regular Publix shopper, so this part was a no-brainer, but the Blockbuster Express kiosk was a fun discovery. We don't rent movies often, but this is a much better value than renting from our television as we have done in the past.

________________________________________________________
Now it's your turn! One lucky winner will receive a free rental
code to Blockbuster Express and a $20 gift card to Publix!

  27. I like Publix but like you said sometimes the prices are a little higher. I do like all the buy one get one free deals they have. Also, I love their fried chicken in the deli. That was the best fried chicken I have had in a very long time.I have seen the Blockbuster movie rental express. Not enough movies to choose from but there was a few good selections there.
    I forgot to add my zipcode so I deleted the other post. My zipcode is:
