Yeah...these are my favorites. Definately going to stock up!

Joanie Demer said...

My favorites too! What's your favorite variety? Blueberry Morning and Cranberry almond crunch are my favs! (but the blueberry morning, I think has more sugar than fruit loops. . .)

Which Albertson's was this found at? I'm in the DFW/Texas metroplex and we tend to have different deals than Albertson's stores elsewhere. For instance, our stores aren't promoting the awesome Kraft deal. Boo!

How is it coming out to .25 cents a box? I'm confused :-) I must not be reading/understanding it right - is it $2.50 per box and if you buy 4 you get a catalina for $3 off? with the $1 off 2 boxes? help me understand - thanks.

Steven and Ginger said...

Is this deal in AZ or just certain states?

Miss Anna B said...

Terry,

The boxes are 4/$10.

Immediate savings of $4 brings it down to $6. Use 2 $1/2 coupons. Now you are down to $4. Get a $3 catalina and voila! you are down to $1 for all four boxes. Making it $0.25 a box.

Hope that helps.

Tracy C said...

Have you confirmed that the Albertson's 2.50 sale will last through 9/6 - or only the catalina promo?

Collette said...

Where do you get the immediate savings of $4? Where can you get the coupons if you do not have the smartsource coupons so you can use the 2 $1/2 coupons? Sorry for my ignorance just trying to catch on to all these amazing savings!!

Heather Wheeler said...

Collette- The register will automatically take $4 off when you buy 4 items (participating items)

If you are buying 4 boxes of cereal you can use 2 $1/2 coupons.

If you didn't get coupons from 7/26 (July 26) you can purchase them on Ebay. If you decided to do that- act quickly so you get them in time.

maygan said...

I've heard rumors of doublers on sunday, this would be an even better deal if that were true!

Terry said...

I was confused about the immediate $4 off as well. You've got the info about the catalina's for purchasing but how do you get the instant savings? Just from buying 4 at a time?

Terry said...

If I'm doing my math right, its still a great deal even if you don't have the $1/2 coupons. I've never tried this cereal and I LOVE cereal, so I am very excited :-)

Cara said...

Is this only for Post Selects or are other Post cereals included?

mommyof3 said...

Is the SS coupon just a "post cereals" coupon or does it specifically say "post selects"? My coupon from 7/26 just says post cereals. I just want to make sure because I do not want to miss out on a quarter deal...I love love cereal too!!

Keri Lyn @ She Saved said...

oh please let there be doublers this weekend.....

Joanie Demer said...

All you doubler folks make me laugh! Dreaming of doublers. . . When did $0.25 become too much to pay for a box of cereal? :) I love it!

the $1.00/2 coupons reads 'Post Cereal favorites, any variety 10 oz. or larger.'

The Save $4 deal is going on already- advertised in the weekly ad (check your area if you like), price effective 8/12-8/18. The catalina promo will begin Friday for the additional $3.00 off catalina.

jadzia325 said...

My post coupons say "Save $1 When you buy ANY TWO (2) boxes of these POST favorites." Then lists Grape Nuts, Shredded Wheat and Raisin Bran on the right side.

* 10 oz. or larger, any variety. Assuming this means any variety of grape nuts, shredded wheat, or raison bran.

Color me confused.

The coupon is on any post cereal but it looks like the catalina is only on post selects so if you want the other varieties it won't come to a quarter.

Terry said...

my smart source coupon was for $1/2 and showed a pic of cocoa pebbles, honey bunches of oats and then post selects. It was right next to another one - $1/2 for grape nuts, shredded wheat and raisin bran. I am so unorganized so I was very pleasantly surprised I found all 5 of my coupons! yipee - but even without the catalina - using the coupon on any of the cereals in the deal and getting the $4 off, is pretty good. LOL, maybe I'm too new at this - anything under $1.50 a box is a deal to me!

Mary H said...

It sounds like the Catalina only appplies to the Post Selects:

Blueberry morning
Cranberry Almond Crunch
Banana Nut crunch
Great Grains
Maple Pecan Crunch

The good news is that this is part of Albertsons's deal which is if you purchase 4 in one transaction - you automatically get them for $1.50 each. Add the coupons (that indicate get $1/2 of ANY Post Favorites)and you get the final price of $1 for 4!! I purchasedcoupons off of ebay this morning which were buy 20 coupons for $1.75.

Rochelle and Zach said...

Jadzia325 -
I used the coupon that pictured the Grape Nuts, Shredded Wheat and Raisin bran and it worked without a hitch!

NOTE TO ALL:
2 CERTAIN varieties do not ring up well together. When I had four boxes of cereal in a transaction and some were Banana Nut (yellow box) and some were Apple Caramel Pecan (green box), the $4 DID NOT come off automatically. My cashier manually had to enter it. They have now fixed the issue at the Vista location.

The Barkers said...

That coupon Says it is for only three kinds of cereal? So does that mean the store will not get reinbursed!? I know that there are three post coupons. Only one says for any favorite and shows the three different types of post cereal.(post select included) I know all the bar codes are the same on the coupons but does that mean we can use them or that we shouldn't. Shouldn't correct? anyone have that answer? thanks

Jenna & Josh & Ailey Rae said...

I went to albertsons today in utah.. And it didn't work.. I called the catalina place and they said there is no cat for this.

Teresa said...

Thanks for posting this deal! I have never pre-ordered before. If I pre-order does it have to arrive before the sale is over so that I can purchase it at that price? And, when the product does arrive will I have to split my transactions into 4 cereal boxes at a time? So if I preorder 80 boxes will I have to do 20 transactions? And should I preorder today?

Joanie Demer said...

Heather was my source on this info. She received a catalina on Wednesday advertising this deal, so I'm highly suspect if it's not working. Anyone else tried it successfully?

Don't lose hope yet folks. Jenna, I hope you just got a bad rep on the phone from Catalina.

Ok,
I did the Post Deal, at the Eagle/Mc. Store They had Boxes lined up of all Types, I got 24 Boxes for the wonderful Sale price of $8.16 Then I got some of the others Like the 4 Boxes of Grape Nuts,4 Honey Bunches,I also Picked up 2gls. Of Milk to go with the Cereal and a Family size Box of Rice Krispies, That they sent me a coupon for a free Box, and Last but not least two 10 Packs of Hambergers that were on Mark down for $5.00 per pack, I Paid with Two $5 Catalinas from last weeks promo, and a $3 one from my last Post buy, and oop, was $13.53.
I Think I did pretty Good!

Seth & Heather McGary said...

How long are they on sale for the 1.50? Also do we know for sure that a $3 catalina will print when you buy 4. I'm a little nervous to try it. Please let me know if it works for you. Thanks!

Cynthia said...

I just bought 2 banana nut crunch,blueberry morning,and cranberry almond crunch and it worked just fine.

Modern Day Mom said...

Has anyone confirmed where this deal is taking place? My local Albertson's knows nothing about it. :-\

Joanie Demer said...

Modern Day Mom,

The ONLY part of this deal that is unadvertised is the catalina- and it's still valid- we've had lots of successes today.

The 'buy 4 save $4 instantly' is part of the advertised weekly deals in your store's ad.

The Fullmers said...

I had this work for me in Cache Valley Utah. My checker did say that earlier this morning the cat wasnt printing for some customers and so she was relieved that it worked for me.

The Gines Chronicles said...

I know there are a few people dreaming of doublers....

Rock from the Statesman is at my Albies today, and he confirmed there WILL be doublers in tomorrow's paper.

Happy couponing, ladies. Just leave some for me too, if you would. (I don't shop on Sundays.)

heatherlf said...

Wow I just did this at the 5 mile/overland location and got my 5 boxes and the $3 catalina printa sweet!
