Target: Kellogg’s Cereal As Low As $0.25

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 31, 2009 · 35 comments

Kellogg's Cereal Coupon
There's a fantastic FREE $0.25 deal on Kellogg's Cereal at Target this week using those new Kellogg's coupons I shared earlier today!

Select Kellogg's Cereals, $2.66
Buy 3 get 1 FREE

Various Kellogg's Printable Coupons
$1/1 Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Touch of Honey printable
$1/1 Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats Mini Bites printable
$1/1 Kellogg’s Special K Blueberry printable
$1/1 Kellogg's Cereal Target printable

Suggested Scenario

Buy (4) Kellogg's Cereals at $2.66 (B3G1)
Use (4) $1/1 Kellogg's Printable Coupons
Use (3) $1/1 Kellogg's Target Coupons
$0.25 ea. after coupons!

YMMV on using 4 Target coupons -- some stores may allow you to only use 3 since one item is free. In this case the cereal would still be just $0.25 each which is still an awesome deal!

Update: The registers will only allow you to use 3 Target coupons. The fourth will bring up a message that you can't use a coupon on a free item.

Also, it appears that all Kellogg's cereals are qualifying for this offer; however, only a handful are at the $2.66 price point. The prices ranged from $2.66 to $3.99, so you final price may vary based upon the variety you purchase and the coupons you have.

How do you use 4 Target coupons at once? (I mean in one transaction?)

You are buying 4 items and have 4 coupons for each item, all in one transaction. Plus with Target coupons you can print as many as you want. It isn't a limited supply like manufacture coupons. I think the only trick would be actually having what you need (yes I mean need to do the deal once, not want as in doing the deal repeatedly) in stock. Sometimes I go several times for hot items and every time I leave empty-handed.

Kelloggs.com and redplum have coupons that may work for this sale too : )

How do you use 3 or 4 Target coupons for Kellogg's in the same transaction? The coupon says something about "limit one offer per transaction". I always thought this meant I could only use one of the same kind of Target coupon per transaction. This will be great if you really can. Cool.

Yea, I have the same doubt as Vanessa and Whitney. Can you explain this more throughly? Thanks.

On the target coupon, it says "Limit one offer per transaction". I don't understand how you can use 4 in a single transaction.

Yeah I agree with Vanessa, Witney and Carrie. It says "Limit One Offer per transaction". I don't know how well this would work at the cash register.

It depends on your Target. Some stores do allow more than one of the same Target coupon per transaction. Others will not.

It depends on your Target as to whether or not they will accept one or more Target coupons at once. My Target will accept one target coupon per item even if I am buying more than one of the items.

If you buy 10, you can use the 09 Calendar Rewards offer to rec'v $10 back... might even be a money maker but don't have the time to do the math. Going to check it out today - trying to get the $10 off jeans tockens too!
thanks for the post!

My Publix has blinkies for $1/1 Kelloggs Fruit Loops or Apple Jacks so you could pair that with the Target coupons also. My Target lets me use as many as I want in one transaction. I did this last week by price matching with CVS for $2 per box then stacked the coupons and got them free.

Several Safeway stores in my area (Denver) still have the blinkies Dana is talking about. My Target lets me use as many as I want as well. I have never had a problem with limitations at Target. Good luck to all. I am picking up some for home and the food pantry.

As far as taking more than one Target Coupon even though it states limit one per transaction, one of my local Target Stores limit 4 per transaction, but another store lets you use as many as you want per transaction (obviously that is the store I go to most even though it is a few extra miles). It all just depends on your local store!

I'm in Downriver Detroit and our target allows as many as you want per transaction-- they even let you print them in store for free so you don't even pay for the ink or paper. SWEET!

15 Victoria November 1, 2009 at 2:35 pm

I went and used 30 of the same target coupons in one transaction! They didn't care that it says limit one offer per transaction. I'm lucky I have a good target!

I have another question. Most of the time you can only print manufacturer's coupon for twice, how do you manage to get more than 2 mfr's coupon? Thanks.

The Target coupons state clearly "one per transaction" and every time I tried to use more than one I have been told by cashiers and managers that I cannot.
I'm surprised so many people get away with it...unfortunately I can't!
These kind of scenarios never apply to me.

Arianna, I've contacted Target corporate about this, and they said it's up to the store manager whether or not to enforce a limit in a single transaction. My stores have always allowed multiples.

Even breaking your transactions up and using the Target and the manufacturer coupon will get your cereal for $0.66 which is a decent deal.

No luck for me on the cereal today at Target. The coupons I had for the cereal were all for kinds that were not included in the $2.66 sale and were not going to be any real deal even with the use of the Target coupons so I decided to pass for now. Also the Targets I go to have no problem when I use 5, 6 or more of the Target coupons. I am sorry to hear that not everyone gets the same treatment.

Does anyone know what specific cereals are included in this deal?

21 Dawn November 1, 2009 at 3:52 pm

At our Targets in Michigan, the cereal is 2.99 but I was able to get 4 boxes for $3 so it's still a good deal!

22 Tara Kuczykowski November 1, 2009 at 4:21 pm

I'm going to head to Target in a bit, so I'll get a list of what's included!

Yes, it will run through Saturday the 7th, Heather.

I just got back from Super Target and paid 3.97 for four boxes of Kellogg's qcereal and a Silk soymilk! The cereal did not come out free because the cheapest I could find was 2.99. And I had a coupon for a free Silk soymilk wyb two Kellogg's cereals (only the ones listed on the coupon so I had to get those, which were 3.69 and 3.99, but we love soymilk so we got a great deal anyway! :)

I did the cereal deal today with 2 Cornflakes & 2 Raisin Bran (my hubbies' favorites). They were $2.66 each with the 4th free. The register specifically kicked out the 4th Target coupon with the error message you can't use coupon on free item. However I did use 3 of the $1 Target coupons and two $1.50/2 MC, so I paid $1.98 for four boxes and that should keep him stocked for a couple months : )

Thanks for the tip on this one Tara!

Its interesting how different the stores and results are..
I was able to use 4 Target $1.00 Qs along with my Kelloggs Qs & got a great deal. I've never had any issues with using multiple Qs of the same type. Thank God! ;-)
I got 4 boxes of Kelloggs cerial & 1 Huggies #1 daipers for .82c. Course, I dont have any Target gift cards anymore but c'est la vie' eh? ;-)

cant wait to see which kinds of Kelloggs are actually part of this promotion - :) I don't buy a lot of Kelloggs because of their HIGH sugar levels so I'm hoping for some healthy varieties are on sale:)

29 Low November 2, 2009 at 12:37 am

I'm new to this, but if some people are using 30 (!!!) coupons at once - as stated by one person - for this deal , then where is the hope for a lot of us to even find the merchandise in stock!? Doesn't seem very fair, not to mention nice, to be using that many. Why bother even posting about these deals then. Just wondering...

Reply

30 Tara Kuczykowski November 2, 2009 at 11:00 am

Low, I can assure you that stores get in huge amounts of stock when they run a promotion like this. I was in charge of stock at the local Kellogg's distribution center before I had kids.

However, 30 does seem a little excessive. I went last night and bought 8 boxes, which isn't much considering we have a family of 7. I may stop in at the end of the week to get 8 more after the frenzy has died down.

My target has cereal as low as $2.39 ( Frosted Mini Wheats) Used 2 $1.50/2 and 3 target coupons. Wouldn't let me use the 4th. Got 4 boxes for around $1

Reply

32 Victoria November 2, 2009 at 6:22 pm

I did not use 30 coupons on this deal. I used 30 between 2 trips getting INDIVIDUAL cheese sticks. I did not clean them out of them which I wouldn't do because that's unfair, I left plenty so people still had the opportunity to get them. I shared the cheese with people in my community. All the food that I get a lot of because it's free I give to the food pantry. I think everyone should chill your grill on this. Buying a lot is all legal and Target has a person that comes in every night and fills up what is empty. Everyone has a fair shot at getting what they want or need for themselves or for charity.

At my local Target in Central Texas the cereal was advertised as $2.66 but in store it was priced $2.34- the Mini Wheats were included- so I was able to use the $1/1 coupons and get 4 boxes for $0.02!

34 Tara Kuczykowski November 2, 2009 at 8:27 pm

Victoria, I don't think Low was pointing fingers at anyone in particular. I think we've all run to the store on occasion for a deal only to find the shelves cleared, and that's what she seemed to be worried about. I was just letting her know that at Target that's generally not the case. I think it's great that it allows you to donate to the local food pantry.

35 Q November 4, 2009 at 2:26 pm

My Target would only let me use 3 of the $1 Target coupons, it looks like that is the case with most. And Anne, though I agree that a lot of Kelloggs cereals are high in sugar and don't have much to offer in terms of nutritional value, there are some that are pretty healthy. Frosted Mini Wheats is part of the deal. Pretty high in Fiber and Protein (6 grams of each per serving) and the hubby loves it so that is great! I live on the West Coast where everything is expensive. I ended up getting 4 boxes for $3.42 but I looked for the boxes with the 75 cents off coupon Frosted Mini Wheats (Little Bites variety- the honey nut kind has 6 g of fiber and 5 g of protein per serving). Also, Raisin Bran has 7 g of fiber per serving and I believe is also part of the promo. Frosted Flakes was the cheapest (and I admit I broke down and bought some for my pregnancy dessert cravings). Also, make sure that you are getting a good deal by calculating the price per ounce of cereal. For instance, they had the 17 oz size for $2.66 and the 23 oz size for $2.99. Even the the 23 0z is more expensive, you are paying LESS per ounce of cereal and getting a much better deal! I always use the calculator on my cell phone, quick and handy.
