August 19, 2009
I am so excited about this I can barely breath!
My Blog Spark, General Mills and Pepsi Co. are giving ME a $30.00 gift card to Krogers and have challenged me to get the most loot that I can!
BUT, IT GETS BETTER!!
My Blog Spark, General Mills and Pepsi Co. are also offering another $30.00 Gift Card to one of my readers!! And, the gift card is valid at both Kroger Stores and Fred Meyers.
Here's the Deal for Kroger Shoppers:
Starting August 16, 2009 through September 2, 2009 there is a MEGA SAVINGS EVENT!
The Mega Savings Event is taking place at the Kroger Co., Family of Stores Aug. 16th thru Sept. 2nd – Click here to see a list of participating stores. If you are not familiar with this promotional offer, here is how it works: when you buy 10 participating brands (see list below) and use your Shopper Card at check out you instantly save $5. And there is no limit on the number of rewards per transaction! Look for the double yellow tags in-store .
Participating brands include: AMP Energy, Aquafina, Betty Crocker Baking Mixes, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, Cascadian Farms Cereals and Bars, Cap'n Crunch, Cheerios, Cheetos, Chex Mix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Dole Juices and Juice Drinks, Fiber One, Fritos, Gatorade, Golden Grahams, Green Giant, Hamburger Helper, Life , Lipton Tea, Nature Valley, Old El Paso, Pepsi family of 2 Liters, Pillsbury, Progresso, Propel, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Quaker Chewy Bars, Starbucks, Sobe Life Water, Totino’s, Trix, Tropicana, Yoplait and MORE!
For more information, and links to coupon-match-ups for the Kroger Mega-Event, you absolutely must go see JANE4GIRLS800DOLLARANNUALBUDGET (psss: she's giving away a $30.00 gift card too!)
Here's the Deal for Fred Meyer Shoppers:
Starting August 16, 2009 through August 29, 2009, purchase 10 of the qualifying items (see the list above) and earn 500 Bonus Reward Points on your Fred Meyer Rewards Card. Another way to figure out if the product is part of the Promotion is if it has one of the "Blue Participating Item" Tags. For every dollar you spend, you get 1 bonus point, and when you get $500.00 bonus points in a 13 week cycle, you will be mailed a Rewards Rebate to spend at your favorite Fred Meyers.
To get more bang for your buck, load up your Krogers and Fred Meyer's card with e-coupons from Cellfire and Shortcuts, and printing them out from Coupons.com, Smartsource, and Red Plum. Shortcuts is pretty strait forward about this, you just add a Krogers card to your account (even if its a Fred Meyer, choose Krogers as your new card). Cellfire is a bit trickier, you have to set up a new account with a different cell phone number, then enter a zipcode for an area that actually has Kroger stores (I used 77494), then you can download e-coupons on it from Krogers just like you do for Safeway.
Ok, here is the fun part. Like I said before, I am not only being given a $30.00 gift card for myself, but I get to give one away too!! Oh, I am so excited about this! So, if you want a chance at a $30.00 Gift Card that can be used at Kroger or Fred Meyer, leave me a comment with your name and city, and **if you want to, you can email me your full name and address info as well so that when the winner is chosen I can forward the info to My Blog Spark so that they can mail out the prize asap. I will use the Random Integer Generator (recommended by the Frugal Chic) to determine the winner on Sunday evening, August 22, 2009 and will post the winning number and name and either:
1. Forward the winner's info to My Blog Spark (if I already have it) or
2. Give the winner until 6:00 pm Monday, August 23, 2009 to email me their contact info. If the prize is unclaimed by that time, I will pick another winner.
Much love to My Blog Spark, General Mills, and Pepsi Co for giving me this opportunity to do this give-away, and to Erin for her helpful advice on how to do this right!
**I hate spam mail too, so all name, email and address information I receive for this give away will be deleted after the prize is awarded.
