General Mills Monsters Cereal Prize Pack Giveaway!

UPDATE:  Over now folks, will announce the winner in the am!

Austin always jumps up and down when we get a package around here. And when we got a package from General Mills & My Blog Spark in the mail yesterday it was no exception, especially when we opened it. Inside was a Monster Cereals Prize Pack that included one box each of the vintage Monster cereals, Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry.  Watching Austin chomp away at breakfast the next morning and simultaneously investigating the back of the box brought back lots of fond memories and I could almost picture myself doing the same many moons ago. 😉

Yep, that’s right- for over 40 years, General Mills’ Monster Cereals have provided spoonfuls of spooky yumminess all over the country. And from September 26-October 31, you can check out their new look at your local Target store and pick up some to fill your breakfast cauldrons this year! You can also check out, and view a fun “Monsters Go Disco” video and also download some cool desktop backgrounds of a favorite Monsters character.

These General Mills cereals are fun to eat, especially at this time of year with Halloween just around the corner.  They are low in fat and provide a source of whole grain, calcium and nine other essential vitamins and minerals.  Along with the cereal I received, there was also a couple of really neat surprises in my package- a really cool trick-or-treat tote bag with the 3 characters on it and a $10 Gift Card to my favorite store- Target!

Thanks to MyBlogSpark and General Mills- they will also be providing one of my readers with a General Mills Monster Cereals Prize Pack! The winner will receive three full-size boxes of cereal, one each of Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry, a trick-or-treat bag, and a $10 gift card to Target!

You can enter by simply just leaving a comment on this post. Facebook and e-mail entries will not count, so be sure to comment on this post. This Giveaway will run until Wednesday, October 6th, 10 pm EST and one winner will be chosen using Good Luck Folks- I am sure the winer will enjoy their Prize Pack as much as we have enjoyed ours! 🙂

Sunday Insert Coupon Preview for 10/3


We can expect 3 inserts this weekend, one Smart Source, one RedPlum, and one GM. And you can take a look at the preview HERE.  There are some nice coupons for Nivea Lip Care, Green Giant Frozen Vegetables, and another $4/1 Schick Hydro Razor. I also see a $1/1 TicTacs and boy I hope I get that one- I love TicTacs! 🙂 I am not quite sure about any Target Coupons, but looks like so far there won’t be any in the actual inserts, but let me know if you find differently. 

Remember when viewing the insert preview that inserts vary from region to region, some areas may not get certain coupons or your denominations may vary – but you can check out what you may see in your paper on Sunday HERE.

*If you do not get the Qs you hoped for in your inserts- or typically don’t buy a lot of papers- you can always use a clipping service. If you don’t have a clipping service yet- I recommend My Coupon Hunter or you can search for coupons on eBay to see if any of these sources have what you need. You can also try trading coupons in the Totally Target Forum.

Update on the B4G1 FREE Breakfast Items Sale

I recorded all the cereal inclusions on the B4G1 Free Breakfast Items deal for you, and all of the cereals were $2.75 except the Trix, which was $2.54 at my store. There were also several varieties of the Maxwell House International Coffees included too. There is a printable available for them, but in case you have reached your limit, keep an eye out for the $1/2 peelies I saw on several packages today. If you are a fan of these coffees, this works out to be a pretty good deal:
