This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Netflix, the opinions are 100% mine. I can’t lie. I love it. 

Summer! Oh, how I love not having to rush out of bed and get the kids out the door. Most of our mornings have started with cuddles in bed watching Netflix. features several new categories including Family Movie Night, Are We There Yet and TV for Curious Kids. I’ve been really impressed with the selection available.

They are currently offering a 1-month free trial if you are a new customer.  Click here to check out Netflix and see the information on signing up for the free trial.  After your trial period, monthly subscriptions are as low as $7.99 per month.


Don’t two of my little people look so sweet watching Superhero Squad in bed? This was right before they hit each other in the face for “being annoying”.  I’m in the trenches here friends, breaking up sibling arguments is how I spend most of my waking hours. Maybe I don’t love summer break actually.

One of the things I like most about Netflix is that you can easily search the kid-friendly options.  The movies and shows that we generally watch and I approve of always pop up at the top so the kids can easily click on them and find what they are looking for.

Netflix Family Favorites

When I’m feeling a little guilty about how much TV the kids are watching when it’s beautiful outside, I make them watch educational shows like LeapFrog or WordGirl. It makes me feel 10% less guilty for not being a perfect mom and not filling our days with Pinterest worthy crafts and activities.  My 6-year-old son is not impressed if I do this. Can you tell by the look on his face? He would prefer to watch Spider-Man all day. Every single minute of the day. He also is not impressed with clothes.



I’ve mentioned it before, but I really am obsessed with Netflix. Because it’s not tied to a device at your house, it’s totally portable. Here is a list of times that we’ve used Netflix already this summer.  It’s amazing!

  • Through wifi, on the ipad in Starbucks in Dublin, Ireland because it was pouring so hard we got trapped
  • In my bed on the iPhone while we were trying to be quiet so the jet-lagged siblings didn’t wake up
  • At my parents house on the Apple TV when babysitting grandparents were too worn out to do anything else
  • Every single morning on the TV (through the Wii) so I get a shower
  • In the car, with the girls strapped in their carseats on the iPhone so I could clean the kitchen without interruption.  I’m not kidding, I did this. Don’t worry, I could see and hear them from the kitchen.

And about a million other places. But I swear that my kids really don’t watch TV all day.  It just looks like that from my pictures and my stories.  They do other stuff too, I promise! Just not those Pinterest crafts. I just didn’t quite get to those yet. Next summer, I’m on it.

I was planning on adding this into a post in a few weeks, but one of these deals ends today.

We canceled our cable a few months ago (now we have it turned back on, VERY long story that involves blacked-out Mariners games), but in the time that we didn’t have cable, we ordered the one-month free trial of Netflix and were really happy with it.

I have always been of the mind-set that since we can get movies from Redbox for $1, why in the world would we need to pay every month for a movie service?

We had it set up so we could watch movies on our TV through our wireless connection.  There were SO many to choose from.  Not just newer releases, but tons of great kid’s movies and documentaries.  If you are looking to save money on your cable bill or want to cut down on what you spend at the movie theater, this is a pretty good way to go.

There are two offers available right now to maximize your “free” trial:

  • Sign up for a free Eversave account and click on the Netflix Free Trial image (looks like the image above).  Just by going through Eversave, you will get $20 in Save Rewards automatically added to your account, which can be used towards any of their great daily deals.
  • Sign up for a free Swagbucks account (use promo code MEMORIALDAY when you sign up and get 80 Swagbucks in your account) and click on the Netflix offer in the middle of the page.  When you sign up for your free trial, you will automatically get 1000 Swagbucks added to your account.  You can “buy” a $5 Amazon gift card with 450 Swagbucks, so you are basically making $10 on your free trial.

If you don’t want to continue with Netflix, just make sure you cancel your trial before your month is up.  It’s really easy to cancel through your online account.

Leave a comment if you have any feedback on Netflix.  We just did the one-month trial and used it online, but my parents do the mail service and love it as well!
