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?
