It (2017) UHD Digital Copy $4.99 on Sale at Vudu! [Stephen King] #Horror

This weekend you can grab a UHD Digital Copy of the movie It (2017) based upon the same-titled Stephen King book for only $4.99 at Vudu.

NOTE: I haven't seen this flick myself. I was wary of how well the novel would be translated into film and so didn't see it in theaters, but I've recently heard this movie is a fairly accurate representation of the book, plus it's UHD. The novel It was the first Stephen King book that I ever read. My aunt happened to be reading the book when I came to visit her and I inquired about it, so she gave me her copy when she finished. Scared the bejesus out of me as a teen. But I was hooked on Stephen King afterward.

This deal is a part of the Vudu $4.99 Killer Weekend Deals (Horror Movies Sale). While I generally try to stick to promoting free stuff on this blog, when a great low-cost deal like this pops up, I'm definitely going to mention it. I purchased the movie. Luckily for me, I had a $5.00 account credit from the aforementioned "Movies On US" promotion which Vudu ran last month, so it was a freebie for me. Anyhow, get your own UHD digital copy:

Free Episodes - Google Play #DownloadToOwn #FamilyLibrary

The Google Play Store regularly gives away free episodes of various television series and occasionally a made-for-television movie or simultaneous release theatrical movie, etc. The selection changes depending on what is currently being promoted. Sometimes you can score the pilot episode of a new series before it airs on broadcast TV or get more than one episode of a series for free. As these are free "purchases" --- make certain the price on the checkout popup is $0.00 (or Free) --- episodes go into your cloud library at Google Play and can either be streamed or downloaded for offline viewing. A Google account is required for purchasing (free to register, may require a CC on file).

Tip: Use the free episodes as a noncommittal way to check out series in order to see if one should invest any more time in watching.

Novamex Under the Cap #Sweepstakes: #Vudu Discount Code #Prize

If you purchase digital content on Vudu, here's a potential way to save a little dough:

Novamex, a distributor of goods from Mexico, is currently running a sweepstakes called Under the Cap promoting its beverages (Mexican sodas: 1. Jarritos – All flavors/Varieties, 2. Mineragua - All flavors/Varieties, 3. SÍdral MUNDET - All flavors/Varieties, and 4. Sangria Señorial - All flavors/Varieties).

The contest has an no-purchase required alternative method of entry (AMOE) form allowing you to generate two entry codes per day per (email) account. 

One of the available prizes is a Vudu 20% Discount Code. (Vudu allows a maximum of 5 of these sweepstakes codes to be redeemed per user account.) While this prize is rarer than the ubiquitous Fanatics discount code, people are winning. Since finding out about the contest (about two weeks ago), I've played almost daily and have already won about 5 Vudu codes.

So give it try Vudu fans: underthecapamoe.com.


NOTE: The sweepstakes ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on September 15, 2018 (whiles supplies last). There are other prizes including cash and the top prize was a car. Make certain to use accurate information on the form/s as entry codes are emailed and if you win a real prize it will be mailed/shipped to you. Larger value prizes also require you to "prove valid entry" so hold onto any entry code emails you receive --- at least until you see what you've won each day --- because you may need to show the email as proof that a winning code was sent to you. You can also enter by purchasing a participating Novamex beverage (support the contest sponsor) and entering the code printed under the cap. The cap itself serving as proof of valid entry in the event a large value prize is won.
