Buy Forza 5 and M&Ms, Get a $10 Gift Card #FueledByMM

I am a member of the Collective BiasĀ® Social FabricĀ® Community. This shop for Forza 5 and M&Ms has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. Regardless, all opinions are my own and are awesome.

Regular readers know that we’re a family of gamers. Lately, we’ve been spending a lot of time with our new Xbox One. One of the new games for the Xbox One is Forza Motorsport 5. My youngest son is a big fan of the Forza series and has been dropping a lot of not-so-subtle hints that he’d really like Forza 5 for Christmas. Lucky for me, M&Ms currently has a special offer for people who purchase Forza 5 and participating M&Ms products. Thanks to the Buy, Snap, and Redeem offer, I was able to pick up Forza 5 for my son, some M&Ms for stocking stuffers, and earn a $10 Walmart gift card.


First, I headed to our local Walmart and picked up one of the few remaining copies of Forza 5 they had. It’s a really popular game. If you’re considering grabbing a copy, I wouldn’t wait too long.

Next, I hustled over to the candy aisle and grabbed a couple of bags of M&Ms. Since I still had some milk chocolate M&Ms left over from my M&M pixel art, I picked up a bag of peanut M&Ms and a bag of peanut butter M&Ms.

When I got home, I used my phone to grab a picture of my receipt, showing my Forza and M&Ms purchase, and texted it, along with the word M&M, to 811811. Here’s a screenshot:

Within seconds, I got a confirmation text. Here’s a screenshot:

The next day, I received another text, with my gift card code and a special download for Forza! Here’s a screenshot:

Super easy. As a matter of fact, the hardest part of this entire adventure was resisting the urge to play Forza 5 and eat all the M&Ms, myself. Ok, I may have already dug into the M&Ms.

Speaking of M&Ms, I also wanted to remind you about the Gaming is Better with M pixel art contest that runs through December 18th. You can find all the details in the blog post I wrote about it, last week. It’s a really fun contest and one random entrant is going to win an Xbox One, a copy of Forza Motorsport 5, and a bag of M&Ms. So, get those entries in! And please be sure to let me know about them in the comments section, so I can enjoy your handiwork, too.
