Kelloggs Family Rewards removes $1.50/1 reward coupons

Posted November 7, 2014

Kellogg's

 

KelloggsFamilyRewards.com has removed all the $1.50/1 reward coupons from their website.  Shoppers had been able to cash in 1000 KelloggsFamilyRewards reward points for a $1.50/1 coupon for various Kellogg's products. One of the best things about these coupons is that they would double during Harris Teeter Super Doubles events. 

Unfortunately, Kellogg's decided they were TOO popular and they will no longer be available.  Here is the response to unhappy shoppers from a KFR employee on the community page on their website:

"Due to the overwhelming popularity of the $1.50 coupons, they are now Sold Out and will no longer be available. I understand this is frustrating; however, we still have the $.75 coupons available. In addition, we are are always updating our rewards and invite you to check back soon. Thanks again for being a loyal rewards member!"

The KelloggsFamilyRewards Facebook page is flooded with comments from angry shoppers who vow to stop using the program and find alternative brands instead.  They feel like it is not worth the time to collect 500 points for a .75/1 coupon.  Many posted that they live in areas where the .75/1 coupons do not double and are just not valuable enough to keep up with the program.

Here in the Triangle, we are lucky that Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods still double coupons every day of the week. The .75/1 coupons from Kellogg's double to $1.50, which still makes for some very good deals on cereal, Eggo waffles, Pop Tarts, crackers and more.

For more information on the changes, including a recent change to the number of prints they will allow for reward coupons, see CouponsInTheNews.com.

I have to admit, based on the recent changes, I am going to cash out my 2000 reward points for .75/1 coupons and use them on cereal and veggie burger sales in the next couple weeks. Then, when I reach 500 points each time, I will cash them out for a .75/1 coupon while they are still available.

Will this influence how often you buy Kellogg's products?

    Noooooooo!! I'm so disappointed! I should have gotten the pop tart deal last week at HT! Now, Now the deals just won't be the same. The only time I redeem my points is for the poptarts, during SDs at HT.

    Honestly, I don't know if I'll be as diligent when it comes to inputting codes. That one reward was really all I used, and the others I don't get because I don't shop at those places.

    There's another site, Freebie4mom that still lists the codes. Wonder why they still can? The only time I buy Poptarts for my son is with those $1.50/1 coupons matched to the sales. I find it hard to justify the cost of all Kellogg's brands/items without sales/coupons. Cereal is upward of $5/box for crying out loud!

    I truly don't understand the mentality of some of these corporate folks when coming up with 'rules' for these reward programs. 1.50/1 isn't that big of a discount. I don't buy that many kelloggs products to begin with, and it sure doesn't make me look highly upon the brand.

    Not like kelloggs is really hurting financially over 1.50 off their products - after collecting codes mostly from BUYING the products in the first place....

    You would thick that the popularity would make Kellogg's happy because people were buying their products more and more. Strange!

  • newssaavy72 Nov 7, 2014

    Wow! I have over 12,000 points and need to start redeeming mine soon! I did see on the side where those coupons said sold out. I did not know that this was why.

    ThomasG - wral told ME that I could not post the codes anymore.

  • ThomasG Nov 7, 2014

    Faye - others can NOT post the codes either ??
    How about "links" to find them - is that still OK ??
    Thank You !!

    glorydaysphoto - the Morningstar are on sale this week and are part of the buy 10 and get $5 back promo. After promo discount they are $3 each. If you use the .75 coupon they are $2.25 - a decent price, although not as good as they would be with the $1.50 coupon. I bought 2 yesterday.

    ThomasG - wral legal told me not to post the codes on the blog.

    I was waiting for Morningstar to go on sale at Kroger, bc we buy 5 boxes at a time. :( now, no $1.50 coupons
