Buy 10 Kellogg’s cereal, get $10 pre-paid Mastercard (rebate)

Update – We are getting mixed updates on whether or not the Kellogg’s rebate is ONLY for AARP members. The specific form didn’t state such a requirement. You can read my updated post here.

Check out this HOT new rebate for Kellogg’s cereal. Buy any 10 select boxes of Kellogg’s 10 oz cereals and send in your UPCs to get $10 back in the form of a pre-paid Mastercard card (also referred to as a pre-paid gas card). Limit FIVE per household. Expires 12/31/11 but it says while supplies last, so I wouldn’t wait too long. Download Kellogg’s rebate form here (PDF). Make sure and read the fine print.

The cereals that are included are:

Kellogg’s All-Bran® Original cereal
Kellogg’s All-Bran® Bran Buds® cereal
Kellogg’s All-Bran® Complete® Wheat Flakes® cereal
Kellogg’s Smart Start® Strong Heart Antioxidant cereal
Kellogg’s Smart Start® Strong Heart Toasted Oat cereal
Kellogg’s Corn Flakes® cereal
Kellogg’s Corn Flakes® Touch of Honey cereal
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran® cereal
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran® Crunch cereal
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran® Extra! cereal
Kellogg’s Crispix® cereal
Kellogg’s Product 19® cereal
Kellogg’s Mueslix® cereal
Kellogg’s® Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal
Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola with Raisins cereal
Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola without Raisins cereal
Kellogg’s® Fruit Harvest Strawberry/Blueberry cereal
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies® cereal

The rebate form DOES NOT require a receipt, so I recommend checking your current stockpile to see if you have any of these varieties on hand. If so, you might not have to spend any money to send in your rebate!

Print off coupons! Yes, you can use coupons on your cereal that you’re buying for this rebate – I recommend it! Visit Kelloggs.com (create an account, if you don’t have one already) or Coupons.com for the latest Kellogg’s coupons.

A few rebate tips:

  • I recommend making a copy of your rebate before sending it in, just in case. When rebates require UPCs I tape them all to a piece of blank piece of paper and make a copy.
  • Because this doesn’t expire until the end of the year, I would try to wait until we can get cereal at rock bottom prices (I’ll be posting an Albertsons scenario directly following this post that would be a great opportunity!)
  • Use coupons! In most cases you can buy rebate items using coupons and then send in for rebate – it’s a great way to add extra savings. You can read the fine print on the rebate, but in most instances, coupon use is a-okay on your rebate items. Most will still refund you the full amount (without the coupon)!

  1. At the bottom of the rebate link, it states

    I take this to mean that Kelloggs will have no way of knowing if you’re an AARP member or not.

  2. I have a question about the Catalina….Fine print on the Catalina says:

    Now, save even more! Buy any three or more Kellogg’s cereals
    (8.7oz or larger, any flavor mix or match) in one shopping order. Between 3/23/11 and 4/12/11

    And get one gallon of free milk (up to 3.99, any brand, any flavor)

    On a future order with coupon. All free milk coupons are good on any brand, any flavor up to 3.99 per gallon.

    ***here is what makes me nervous****
    All items must be purchased in one shopping order.

    I did not buy my milk in this shopping trip and now I have 6 milk coupon I am worried I can’t use. The way it reads makes it sound like you have to get 3 more cereals to use the free milk coupon. Has anyone used the coupon yet on a different trip or at another store?

    • oops ment this to be on the comments for the free milk not the pre-paid card.

      • I haven’t seen it but I think they mean the 3 cereals have to be in one order to receive the catalina for the milk. They usually say “save $3 on your next shopping trip” or words to that affect.

    • I just used 3 milk coupons on a shopping trip to Albertson’s. I bought the cereal and then went back through the line and the checker let me get all three at once. There shouldn’t be an issue unless it expires if you bought the cereal. The coupons I had read free milk up to 3.99. The checker just filled in the price of the milk and I walked out with all three for free.

    • You don’t have to buy anything but the milk to use the catalina. Check the price of the milk though; the catalina is good for up to $3.79 so if the milk costs more, you will have to pay the overage.

  3. My only concern is the fine print on the rebate form. It says no mechanical reproductions. Does that mean I can’t print it off on my printer? Is there an original form near the cereal on the aisle (like a tear pad)? Just don’t want to make the effort if it’s not going to work.
