Super Savings Sunday Tip

Do you like breakfast cereal? What about Post breakfast cereals? Do you live near a Jewel (or another grocery store in the Albertson's chain, possibly)? Here's a good deal that's going on from now through Wednesday, April 1st:

Select varieties of Post cereal are on sale 2 for $3, but you must buy two to get the deal (or else they're $2.50). And you must use your preferred card. $1.50 a box sounds pretty good, doesn't it? But wait...there's more.

Currently there is a promotion going on where if you buy Post cereal, you can get a coupon for money off your next transaction:

Buy 3, get $2 off your next order
Buy 4, get $3 off
Buy 5 or more, get $5 off.

So...if you buy 6 (at 2/$3) it will cost you $9, but at the end of your transaction it will print you a coupon for $5 off. Which is like paying $4 for 6 boxes.

Sounds pretty good, huh? But wait... you can make it even better if you get the Sunday paper. This week's Smart Source coupon insert has a coupon for $1.00 off 2 boxes of select Post cereals (Shredded Wheat, Raisin Bran, or Grape Nuts Nuggets or Flakes - 10 oz. or larger)

If you get more than one paper, like I do (Chicago Tribune and the Naperville Sun), or if a friend or relative who doesn't use theirs will give them to you (thanks, Mom!), you can use three of those coupons on your six boxes. Your total cost for those 6 boxes would come to $1 (plus tax). Even one or two coupons makes it a super deal.

(Btw - if you don't like one of the 2/$3 varieties, you can substitute in another Post cereal - like Honeycombs and you'll still get the coupon at the end. I did that today and ended up paying $2 for my six boxes with two of them being the really big boxes of Honeycombs).

Six boxes may sound like a lot. But at that price, I'd say stock up! Make space in your pantry and fatten up your wallet at the same time.

Note: I've confirmed that this same deal is going on at the Albertson's stores too!

You are the queen of good deals!

Sarah - Queen? No. One of the Deal Queen's ladies, perhaps. There are those much more entrenched in the Deal Kingdom than I.
