Free gas? Yes, please

17 Aug

Kellogg’s is running a great promotion right now. When you purchase specially marked boxes of Kellogg’s cereal, there is a mail in rebate for $5 free gas card. I don’t know many people who would pass up free gas, so watch out for a good sale in your area and now would be the time to stock up. I was in Sobey’s the other day and they had the boxes on for $6.99. With the mail in rebate, your cereal basically works out to $1.99 a box.
I’ll be stocking up on my way through again. I need free gas now more than ever.

    Yikes, I posted a comment and it disappeared. Darn WordPress login! Well here it goes again:

    I think this is a FAIL for consumers. Mail in rebates typically work out in favor of the advertiser, in this case Kellogg’s. People tend to forget to mail the rebate or end up waiting forever for it to go through.

      mail in rebates are trickier than other deals for sure. pay close attention to all the details in the instructions though and you should have no problem. they do take a little time to come, but these deals are usually worth the wait.

    This promotion works out great for Kelloggs, not so great for buyers. Mail in rebates take forever and sometimes never go through. Some people just give up on them or forget them. I can’t remember the statistics but the numbers work out in favor of the advertiser. I fail for consumer in my opinion.

    Sounds like a pretty sweet promo. Since I love cereal I’m going to have to watch out for those mail in rebates. Thanks for sharing this Crystal.
