5 Reasons to Visit Giant This Week, 08/28-09/03

Wow, September deals already! This week's Giant ad is pretty beefy - and the layout had me befuddled for a while, but if you take off the outer cover, the remaining contents more like a typical Giant ad.

Reader Nicole posted a comment about registering for emails from Giant under last week's Giant deals post:
Also, if you sign up for the email from Giant, you often get coupons to load onto your card. This week it was for $.50 one 2 ltr of Pepsi (since they're on sale, I got it for $.50)!
Sweet deal. Thanks, Nicole!

There are dollar doublers this week! We haven't seen these dollar doubling coupons show up in the in-store ads in recent months, so we recommend asking friends or neighbors who are less likely to shop at Giant if they'll be using theirs. You can use only 4 in a trip totaling $15 or more, but for freebies, that incentive to do more than one transaction may be tempting enough. :) Especially cheap deals to be had with dollar doubled coupons will be bolded.

Please note that we haven't had time to check/vet all the printables links yet for ourselves, so caveat printor.

These deals are shared as part of this week's Be CentsAble Grocery Gathering.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit Giant This Week:

Kellogg's, Kellogg's, and MORE Kellogg's. Remember that the Kellogg's Fuel for School rebate is still active through Sept. 30, so if you buy 10 in one transaction, you can send in a rebate request and will be mailed a $10 rebate check.

    Other Kellogg's cereals (around $3.50/box normally) are buy 4, save $4.

Final price: ~$7.50 for four boxes of Rice Krispies, and if you integrate it into a Fuel for School rebate, more like $3.50 for four boxes. If Cocoa Krispies count as Rice Krispies, you might be able to use one freebie and 3 $1/1 coupons (dollar doubled) to get four boxes for FREE before the rebate would even kick in!

    OR: Buy 4 Froot-Loops, use 2 $1/2 coupons, dollar doubled. Total paid: $2 for 4 boxes of cereal. There are many variations of this type of deal using the coupons above.

Hi Redemption Unlimited ladies!
Thanks for the post on this week's Giant deals.
I combined the 4/$6 on select Kellogg's cereals with the $4 off any 4 Kellogg's cereals, Giant Dollar Doublers, and Fuel for School rebate for some free (after rebate) cereal!
I posted about my shopping trip here:
