    Re: The Kroger cereal/milk deal, here's the scenario I did on the way home this evening: Bought 2 boxes Apple Jacks and 2 boxes Froot Loops @ $2 ea = $8, got a free gallon of milk (reg price $3.85), minus $3 Catalina OYNO WYB 4 boxes Kellogg's cereal, minus $2 Checkout 51 credits, minus $1/2 IP for any 2 Kellogg's cereals, minus 2 x $0.70 IPs for any single Kellogg's cereals = $0.60. Even if no one ate the cereal, it's hard to beat $0.60 for a gallon of milk. :-)

    Thanks Ladies !!
    I had noticed many talking about the Kelloggs rewards but I had not had time to check out the complete program . Since we do not buy much Kelloggs cereal anymore, I wondered if it would worth my time to participate lol.
    I will try the website again in a day or two - it must have been overcrowded today .
    Thank You again for answering !!

    nstutt - I totally agree - Sunday is a dead time on the blog. It sounds like you did a great job working that DiGiorno deal, though! I do like the Cary Crescent Commons location as well. Nice folks and generally good stock. Happy deal hunting! :-)

    Faye, no I wasn't frustrated or anything about no one responding to my question. Sometimes it is a matter of timing. Sunday evening is kind of a dead time for that. But that's when I was trying to figure out how best to use the $2 off 2 DiG. pizzas coupon, the ZVR for the same thing and the Checkout 51 50 cents off frozen pizza. And I could only find this 30 oz. pizza for 4.19 at one store out of all the Raleigh stores that had the express lane feature. (Neither Falls of Neuse store does which is surprising since one of them is a large store that you would think had all the services HT offers). Luckily the Cary Crescent Commons store is not out of the way so I did not offset all the savings in gas as you correctly mentioned. (That's one of the things you must say in your classes). So yes that is what I was alluding to that only certain stores have all the specials (out of stocks notwithstanding) and if one of them is not out of the way, then it is the go-to store.

    If you're referring to their St. Patrick's Day/400 Bonus Point promotion, here's a list of what items are part of that promotion (which has now been extended until end of day, 3/21): purposely waited until this promotion to enter the codes from my four boxes of Eggos I recently bought at Target (to get a $5.00 Target e-Giftcard,) so I would also get that bonus of 400 points, while at it. (It also appears that I got bonus points for each of the Eggo codes, as well - looks like they each were doubled.) Very nice!

    ThomasG ~ you can also find codes in pop tarts and cheez its. Any kelloggs "special K" products too

  • ThomasG Mar 17, 2014

    Are other products eligible for the Kellogg Rewards besides cereals & eggos ??
    I tried looking at the website but it was so slow today I did not have time to wait for it .
    Thansk for your help
