Buy Eclipse at Walmart and get a VUDU credit free

There has been a lot said about the fact that New Moon didn't come with a digital download and none of the copies of Eclipse do either. Well Walmart and Vudu are joining to fix that.

With every purchase of a physical copy of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at Walmart or (including Movie-only DVD, the Two-Disc Special Edition, Twilight Eclipse / Destination Forks two-pack, Blu-ray Movie Only or Blu-ray Combo Pack), customers will receive an offer for a $5 movie credit on VUDU. Once again, Walmart and VUDU are joining forces to deliver an awesome value to movie lovers!

Yes, you heard correctly. You can grab the physical DVD or Blu-ray disc (so you can drool over the cover art) AND get the digital copy to stream to your VUDU enabled PS3, Blu-Ray Player, Connected TV, or computer (via Boxee) . Or, you can use your credit to stream any other available movie on the service.
 Check out the Vudu blog for all the details!

Help keep our troops warm

One of the things that is so nice about having blog and twitter followers and the people in this fandom is that we are able to work together to help others. Some of you may remember Shaun, the soldier featured in my "Real Men Read Twilight" series. He also wrote a guest post during our Eclipse discussion. Shaun is currently deployed to Afghanistan and he's given us a great idea on how to help support the troops. From his facebook page...

OK so a lot of you have been asking me about what you could possibly send and is there anyway to help out the troops. Yes there is and what we could use is some hand warmers. You know the kind that you shake up and put in your pockets. It is starting to get very cold out here and we don't have very good heat sources ...for our troops in the towers and on the line. These would go a long way in raising the troops' morale.

<--This is the kind of thing that he's talking about. They can use this type of hand warmers, foot warmers and body warmers. Anything like this to help keep them warm.You DO NOT have to purchase a whole box or order them from Amazon. Every set helps keep someone warm and will make a difference.

I'm ashamed to say that it never occurred to me that the cold was an issue in Afghanistan, but the winter there can bring days with highs around 10 degrees F and lows around -10 degrees F. Those winter temperatures can last until March or April.

This is the perfect time of year to think of the troops and do something for them. If you are interested in sending some of these, you can either send them directly yourself or send them to me for shipment. Just email me or send me a message on twitter and I'll be glad to get you all the information that you need. If you order them on amazon, you can actually have them shipped directly. A nice little benefit!

Let's work together to make this a successful effort! If you'd like to keep up with Shaun, he has a new blog, From Afghanistan With Love. I highly recommend it.
