Cheap Date Night

I hate to admit it but we've let the whole concept of Date Night pass us by over the last couple of years. Usually we're pretty ready for complete silence by the time we get the kids tucked in so the thought of actually going anywhere is out of the question. We are, after all, the couple least likely to remember our anniversary. That's why I was excited when Blockbuster Express asked me to plan a Cheap Date Night for $25. Rental movie, hanging in my PJs, not having to leave the house? Heck, I won't even have to keep my contact lenses in or a bra on. I'm in.

So here's what our date is going to entail. Some nice wine, blue cheese burgers, maybe some chocolate pudding. I'd like to watch 30 Century Man, the documentary about Scott Walker, although I think Bob would probably be more into a Clint Eastwood flick from the '70s. Again. We'll have to see what we come up with. It's usually one arty thing, one action thing. Marriage is all about compromise, right?

If you'd like to plan your own Cheap Date Night extravaganza, here's a 2-for-1 rental code to use at any Blockbuster Express kiosk: 5G13B8. Click here to find a BBX location near you. You can also browse and order your movies online and pick them up at your local BBX kiosk. Pretty cool!


Code is valid thru 3/31/2010. When you rent a movie at the regular price, you'll receive the first night's rental on a second movie FREE. Extra night charges and taxes apply. May not be combined with any other offer. Rental terms and conditions apply. Not valid at Blockbuster store locations.

Disclosure: I received a gift card from Collective Bias for participating in the Cheap Date Night promotion for Blockbuster Express.


  1. ROFL! PJ and no bra... Sounds like a win to me! =)

  2. I'm probably the last person on earth to get the kiosk/netflix kind of stuff (sadly, our local video store closed this weekend, so I guess I must figure out a new thing).

    It's good to know there's a Blockbuster kiosk in our local gas station. The nearest store is 20 minutes away.
