Let's Go Krogering! | Week of January 17, 2011 (Frozen Foods Mega Event & HOT Deal on NV/Fiber One Granola Bars Continues!)

Wondering what's the deal with my weekly Let's Go Krogering! (LGK!) posts?
 Click here for more information.

I was *so* happy to see that the GM deal continues this week at Kroger: buy (3) participating GM cereals and/or granola bars for $2.49 ea, get (1) FREE box of Cinnamon Cheerios or Cinnamon Chex.

What makes this deal so darn pretty is the overlapping catalina deal on Nature Valley Granola Bars/Fiber One Granola Bars: buy (5) NV or FO Granola Bars, get a $3.50 catalina off your next order (OYNO).

Since the NV/FO Granola Bars are participating items for the FREE Cinnamon Cheerios/Cinnamon Chex, this is a triple whammy of a deal:

ONE: Use $0.50/1 printable coupons to get the granola bars for $1.49 ea after coupon doubles to $1.00/1

TWO: Get (2) FREE boxes of Cinnamon Cheerios or Chex when you buy (5) granola bars and (1) other participating GM cereal or granola bar

THREE: Get a $3.50 catalina to use OYNO.

I did this deal last week, too; after this week's trip, I'm well-stocked up again on granola bars & cereal which makes me thankful.  Those are two items that we go through pretty quickly around here!
