.

HOW IT WORKS:
1. Buy the specially-marked packages of General Mills products (some require multiple purchases of that product, read the box!)
*Tip - The simplest offer is on the cereal boxes - 1 box = 1 offer
Offers are only on Family Size cereal boxes, so prices will vary. Generally, a good sale price is $4. Okay $5. Anymore, up to you.

2. Printed on the inside of the box is a unique code, look for it

3. Your unique code will be "worth" different things in different months. Visit the Cineplex link and redeem your code in your desired month of this promotion!

Pro Tip: A "movie ticket" through this promotion is the price of a box of cereal, around $6. That's the cheapest form of admission around. None of us like to waste food, and I'm not suggesting that you do (get it in the hands of someone who will eat it) but the fact remains, the cereal is irrelevant. We are paying for the movie code, in the box of cereal.

Shame that December isn't a free movie. You know EVERYBODY would hoard these and go see The Last Jedi.

Saw this thread and just looked in the back of my pantry...still have unopened bags of honey nut cheerios.
I guess it's food for the squirrels in my backyard now...

So free popcorn and drink but not a movie pass?

Edit:

I see they've improved the offer by not having us sneak drinks and food in. :)

Damn......We just grabbed 32 (Cineplex) M&M's a few weeks ago. I guess we'll be eating Cheerios topped with M&M's.

Thanks for the heads up. :)

From the images, it's B1G1 Free (October) and Free (November) Child ticket. However, the front of the box does not prominently distinguish if it's Child or Adult admission offer.

In the past, the front distinguished between the Child and Adult ones. Given there is nothing to distinguish this year, could it be that there won't be Adult admission offers?

For anyone who bought the cereals, can you please confirm if the free movie tickets only for kids, or can it be used for either adult or kids?

The image I uploaded is specifically of the Child's Ticket, not adults. I am confident in that as in year's past, the Lucky Charm's line has carried the child offer, while cereals like Multi-Grain Cheerios, carried the Adult Offer.
Unfortunately, the promotion boxes were only on Lucky Charms at this store, they didn't get the other ones in.

Although it's not CLEARLY marked like in previous years (on the front of the box), when you turn the box offer and see the offers, I think it's pretty clear which you're getting. Since the popcorn and drink are regular sized, I think General Mills is playing a little trickery and getting away from the "Adult" and "Child" markings on the front, since someone could purchase THIS box and still get a decent offer, just not the adult offer.

When someone uploads a photo of the adult one (or even me), I will updating the post entirely, don't worry. But for now, this is all we have, unfortunately. The adult cereals should have the adult offer, same dates.

This is SPECIFICALLY for Lucky Charms. The adult cereals should have the adult offer.
I've updated the original post with some notes, so there's no longer any confusion.

I'm going to look for the adult ones today Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
