*Expired* Win Cash from General Mills Cereal Boxes

by Freebies4Mom on April 19, 2009 1:38 pm

I found $30 in Discover cards inside two boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios that I bought today. Odds are great you’ll find one too because 1 in 10 boxes has a Discover card inside in the You Could Win Cash promotion. Look for specially-marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, Lucky Charms, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals.

I guess I was super lucky today because I bought 4 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios and two of the boxes were winners! I had my eye out for the specially-marked boxes because Shelly sent me an email about it (she won a $5 and her friend won $10). I got a $5 Discover card in one box and a $25 Discover card in another box. The Honey Nut Cheerios were $3.19 a box at Kroger, plus I had $3 worth of coupons to use on those 4 boxes. So I spent $9.76 on my cereal and got $30 in return.

Be sure to check your coupon file for General Mills cereal coupons and look for the specially-marked boxes. If you shop at Kroger, you can load Cellfire grocery coupons to Save 55 cents on Cheerios (expires 4/20) and Save 50 cents on Cinnamon Toast Crunch (expires 5/4). Today I also got my free Kroger resuable bag. A great day of freebies at the grocery store for me! Be sure to tell me if you win cash from your cereal box too!

This is my idea of economic stimulus! I got a box last week and it was not a winner. Congratulations. Teddihttp://www.teddiscorner.com

Are they just in Honey Nut Cheerioes? Or other types of General Mills cereal too?

That’s awesome! About 9 years ago I won $100 dollars in gold dollars inside a Honey Nut Cheerios box. (well, the coupon at least) I still love HNC for that reason!

The chances are really 1 in 10. We had a really good sale and I bought 8 boxes. One had a $5 card. My kids were thrilled

I bought six boxes of marked original Cheerios (.75 each, which was a deal in itself) when Safeway had them on sale a few weeks ago, and not one of them had a card! I was so bummed, but I think this goes through 2010, so maybe next time I’ll be lucky!

My son got a $10 one in his Lucky Charms! I was so excited! But, he looked and me and says, “Darn, I wish it was a $25 one.” Oh kids….
