Walmart #CyberMonday “Evening Edition” Starts NOW!

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 30, 2015 · 0 comments

Those of you with day jobs will love this... Walmart is giving everyone a second chance to access incredible Cyber Monday deals that typically aren't available when evening rolls round!

Check out some of the best offers here:


If you're at all vaguely interested in gaming, it's probably safe to say that you're aware that Star Wars Battlefront will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th (officially at 12:01 a.m. EST). I know I've been hearing my husband and older boys chatting about this game for at least the past year, and they are totally looking forward to playing it together.

BUT they'll have to wait just a little longer because, even though I preordered three copies, they're going under the Christmas tree until Christmas morning! Does that make me a rotten mom?

If you're debating about picking Battlefront up as a gift, you might want to head over to Walmart right now! They've been hosting a play-it-before-you-can-buy-it event in select stores since last Friday. We ran over last Friday to check it out, and it was pretty easy to spot the location they were holding it at -- it's kind of hard to miss the giant Millennium Falcon hanging from the ceiling!

Unfortunately, the live demo in my store wasn't working at that time (hopefully it's fixed now!), but I was able to pick up some fun coloring sheets for my youngest boy and snag a cupcake to eat while checking out the latest Stars Wars The Force Awakens toys. We were too disappointed, though -- my husband and boys already played the beta version, and they haven't stopped talking about it.

I think it's safe to say it's going to be a looooonnnnnggg six weeks until Christmas!

You still have one last chance to try the game yourself before it launches tonight. Participating locations (find one near you here) will be holding events at the following times (based on time zone):

  • Eastern: 8:00 p.m. – 12:01 a.m.
  • Central 7:00 p.m. – 11:01 p.m.
  • Mountain 6:00 p.m. – 10:01 p.m.
  • Pacific 5:00 p.m. – 9:01 p.m.

If you already know you want to preorder Star Wars Battlefront, now is a great time! All Walmart preorders will receive an exclusive Star Wars trading disc by Topps! Prices start at $59.96.

Is Star Wars Battlefront on your (or your kids') Christmas list this year?!

As you probably know, tomorrow is Veterans Day. I'm a firm believer that our military veterans deserve our appreciation all year long, but I'm grateful for the additional recognition that this day brings.

Every veteran has a story, and we make sure to share our family's stories with our kids regularly in the hopes that they will pass them down to their children. Both of my grandfathers fought in World War II, with one earning a purple heart after nearly being crushed by a tank in Germany. My husband's grandmother was in the Navy, and his father was in the Air Force. And I'm so proud of my cousin who was just accepted into the Navy's nuclear engineering officer program -- wow!!!

And these are just a few members from among the many branches of our family tree. I'm sure there are more uncles, aunts, and cousins that I'm not even aware of, you know? Because once they're no longer on active duty and put away their uniforms, they just start to blend in with the crowd...

GreenLight A Vet

Which kind of makes you start to wonder how many service members we see each day that just blend into the crowd. Right? So I love this program that Walmart is supporting called GreenLight A Vet. The program encourages Americans to establish visible daily support for our veterans by changing one light in a visible location to green, a color symbolizing hope, renewal and well-being.

Thousands of everyday Americans have already shared their support for the Greenlight A Vet movement on social media -- and you can, too! At the very least, you can simply use the hashtag #GreenlightAVet on your favorite platform. But if you have a chance to pick up a green light bulb at your local Walmart, please do so and share a photo, as well!

P.S. Be sure to share this BIG list of Veterans Day freebies with your favorite vet!

Enter to Win: NEW Vivitar Action Camera ($59.99 Value!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 22, 2015 · 120 comments

I've been drooling over some amazing action camera videos I've been seeing on Instagram recently, and I often think how fun it would be to try capturing my family with one of these camcorders. I've had my eye on a couple of high-end models for some time now, but I haven't taken the plunge because I just really wasn't sure if I'd use it often enough to justify the price tag.

I'm so glad that I hesitated, because Vivitar just released a new action camera (just in time for the holidays!!!) that is ultra affordable and comes with a ton of extras. The Vivitar DVR786 is priced at a low $59.99, making it a fantastic option for on-the-go teens, adventurers, and families alike.

The Vivitar DVR786 is a full HD action camcorder that records in 1080p quality. It features 12.1 megapixels and 4x digital zoom -- but the extras are what really take it to the next level. Packaged along with the camera, you'll receive a waterproof case (it's submersible up to 30 feet!), both a bicycle and helmet mount, and a remote control. You're really getting a ton of features for your money!

We've been very pleased with this action camera so far! I actually haven't gotten to use it much myself, because my kids are always using it. I'd say it's very durable -- it's stood up to their abuse with no issues. And it's also very user friendly -- they're had no trouble downloading the video off of the camera. A full battery charge lasts about 30 minutes, which could be a little better, but overall for the price, the Vivitar DVR786 is a great way to see if an action camera is right for you without spending a ton of money.
