Extreme Couponing Canada tip: Buying breakfast cereals can save you money!

extreme couponing canadaHow do you choose your breakfast cereal? The cheapest box? The healthiest box? The largest value pack size? Not me! I choose the cereal that has the best coupon offer on the box, and believe me, there are ALWAYS coupon offers. Some of my best extreme couponing canada shopping trips are because of the coupons I find on cereal boxes!

This is interesting because this is a way to save money, by spending money. Seems odd, but it’s really not. Cereal companies, notably General Mills and Kelloggs constantly partner with different companies and manufacturers to bring you great offers to help market their products.

Take the above picture, for example. Once, sometimes twice a year, General Mills teams with Cineplex to bring us free movie coupons with the purchase of their cereals. Each box has a coupon you can cut out and redeem immediately. The promotion lasts for 4 months with a different offer each month. It ranges from a free movie admission, to a free snack or drink to buy one get one free movie admissions. The best deal is the free movie admission which is currently valued at $12.50. So with a $3 box of cereal you are saving $9.50 AND you have breakfast for the next few weeks! Heck, even if you hate cereal, buy the box just for the movie ticket and you’re still miles ahead! As I’ve mentioned in other posts, extreme couponing canada principles can be applied to pretty much any place that you spend money, especially the movie theater.

Other notable offers I have seen are free magazine subscriptions and shirts with pin codes offered inside the cereal boxes (free shipping as well!). There are also high value coupons for healthy products like salads and dressing and even free product coupons for other breakfast items like juice, eggos and yogurt. Think about the possibilities. You could use a $1.00 coupon to purchase a box of cereal that is on sale for $3.00, pay $2.00 for it, cut out your free yogurt coupon and get a $4 pack of yogurt for free!

Sometimes, there will be offers that you need to mail in for. A few months back, Kelloggs offered a $5 gas card for each box of cereal purchased. All you had to do was cut out the form, fill it in and mail it to them and 6 weeks later you received a $5 prepaid mastercard to be used at any gas station (but really could be used anywhere! I used mine to pay for my cell phone bill :)   ) There are limits of course. This one was 5 per household, but I purchased the cereal for $2.50 a box, so really, they paid me $12.50 to buy their cereals.

You might wonder how they can run such great coupon offers without losing out. Well, the redemption rates on these types of promotions are ridiculously low, as most people do not pay attention to them or even bother reading about the offer on the box. What a shame! I find that I save more money with cereal offers than I spend on the actual cereals, especially when I use coupons to purchase them, so I always have an abundance of cereal in my house and give a lot of it away to family and friends. Come hungry, leave happy!
