BIG changes to KelloggsFamilyRewards program!

Posted June 2, 2015


Kelloggsfamilyrewards.com has made some huge changes to their rewards program. If you have been entering codes from packages, that is changing and there are new ways to earn points.

They are phasing out the codes on packages and you will be able to earn rewards by uploading a receipt with a participating product on it or by adding your store rewards card numbers so they can track purchases that way (like Savingstar.com).

You can still add your codes from packages for now, but they will be getting rid of that option.

The site is undergoing changes right now and I was unable to see the new rewards or cash in my current reward points. The error message on the site indicates that they will have everything up and running "shortly."

Hopefully we will be able to redeem rewards soon.

When you upload your first receipt and add a loyalty card, you get 100 reward points each.

Thanks to Ctondee31205 for posting about the new changes on the blog!

You can see all the details of this transition on their website.

    You can actually still enter codes. I entered 3 an hour ago with the msg still there. Pts were added and total wasn't lost. I even nabbed the 100 pt bonus for watching the video of the new ways to earn points. The 100 pt bonus for linking a card takes a while to verify so we will see how it goes!

    Not sure if these are good changes or not - I will participate the best I can and see if it continues to be worth to me
    I am still hesitate about linking store cards with 3rd parties so I will scan and submit just like I do for SavingStar.
    Like GranofTwenty , I like to save my codes for bonus events.
    I got over 2000 points for one round ( 1500 the second time ) during the Memorial Day event ( bonus items - 360 per box of cereal plus the 500 bonus for entering codes on certain days )
    I noticed LOWES FOODS is not one of the link stores nor is KROGER but subsidiaries of both are listed including JUST SAVE and Harrie Teeter.
    I hope they will accept scanned receipts from KROGER & HT .

    Hope I don't loose all my points!! I had the hardest time with the codes!!!

    I'm so glad they're doing this! It was kinda a pain to rip open the box to find the code...and then I always had a hard time reading the numbers & letters correctly :)

    I wonder if there will continue to be posted codes available from websites .
    I could not find any info about a "deadline" for uploading receipts after purchase .
    I like to save my codes until a bonus event to maximize my points

    acs0427 - you can still enter package codes for now. I entered one this morning. Not sure when that will end but they are phasing it out so you can still enter the ones you have.

    Does that mean that any package codes I haven't entered and that I don't have receipts for are "lost"?

    There are also a few other bonus opportunities, such as 100 points for updating your profile, or 100 points for watching a video about the changes, but those were unavailable to me at this time.
