Cheerios 2-Box Package Giveaway

My family loves Cheerios.  Every time I see a sale on them at Publix, I find the highest-value coupons for Cheerios that are available and get as many as I can.  By combining the Publix sale with the coupons, I can often get a medium-sized box of Cheerios for $1.50 or less.

But if you don't want to use coupons, another way to get Cheerios for cheap is to shop at a warehouse store like Sam's Club, Costco, or BJ's.  But at those stores, Cheerios are often sold in gigantic boxes that are simply too big for an invidiual, a couple, or even a small family.

If your family doesn't devour Cheerios like mine does, I have good news for you: Cheerios now has a new 2 box Cheerios packaging format makes Cheerios an even better purchase! You can cheer on the value by purchasing the new 2 box Cheerios packages in Club! 

Here's some interesting information about the new 2 box packages:
  • New 2 box Cheerios contains two individual boxes, making them easier to store and easier to pour!
  • By reducing the amount of air in each individual bag, these enhanced containers fit 10% more cereal than before and use less packaging.
  • While each box contains more cereal, packaging material has been reduced by over 200,000 lbs, saving 1,000 trees and taking 130 Cheerios trucks of the road, and decreasing CO2 emission.
Check out this video about the new Cheerios packaging:

Would you like to try out the new 2 Box Cheerios package? Check your local Sam's Club, Costco, or BJ's.

Or would you like to try it for free?

Frugal Follies is hosting a giveaway for 2 packages of the new 2 Box Cheerios package (4 boxes total)!

To enter, use the Rafflecopter below!  The giveaway is open to US residents aged 18 and older.

The 2 boxes together would be of help to my family because hubby can't have sugar and he eats a lot of Cheerios. Not only that but it's also a favorite of the grandkids.

Rachel April 27, 2012 at 1:45 AM  

This will benefit my family because 2 bags will help them to not go stale

It would help us because we are on a low monthly food budget and this would help us out greatly. We wouldn't have to spend it on cereal, we would be able to buy other foods instead.

The way my kids eat cereal, this packaging would be great, no more arguing about who ate what, they can share

Brandy Batson,  April 29, 2012 at 9:32 AM  

My grandpa had his stomach stapled in the 80's. it got gaingreen in it and since then he can eat very little and loves cheerios .so He will enjoy this very much.

Katie April 29, 2012 at 9:42 AM  

I love Cheerios, but my husband isn't as a big of a fan. I can easily go through one box before it goes stale, but not quite two. Plus we can keep one in our pantry and one in storage above the cabinets since we live in an apartment with limited kitchen space.

Cheerios are a staple in our house. My toddler loves them & my baby will be able to start eating them soon. Would love to win this as it would help out w/ groceries!

This giveaway is amazing! My family's favorite cereal is, in fact, Cheerios. We go through it by the box. Thus, a 2-box package is grand because it will last us twice as long. Thanks so much!

Mitzi Matata,  May 2, 2012 at 5:04 AM  

My dog wouldn't eat the cheerios that my triplets would throw to him from the high chairs. He got SO sick of them after the first week that, 10 years later, he still won't touch them. And this dog will eat ANYTHING!

If I won this I would start eating and enjoying cheerios again. I haven't had any in years (I don't go to the grocery store, myself).

Donna Horton,  May 15, 2012 at 1:15 PM  

My husband eats lots of Cheerios. This is usually is evening snack before bed. Anything that I can get in smaller packaging at a value price is good because he is not real good about closing packages well and if I do not check behind him often we end up with stale Cheerios. Such a waste.

Kiley P. May 15, 2012 at 2:42 PM  

My whole family loves cheerios! So the more the better, plus I read that it saves cabinet space.

texaslady22 May 15, 2012 at 2:57 PM  

I have 2 kids and I'm having a baby on Monday. We could use these Cheerios!


Lisa May 15, 2012 at 8:12 PM  

We go through Cereal so fast this would really help us out on our low budget!

We're big fans of Cheerios so this would be a great win. The smaller boxes will fit better on the cereal shelf and will be easier to recycle.


mywildcrazylife May 17, 2012 at 9:07 AM  

I personally like the fact that it holds two bags in stead of one so they don't get state. However, I really like the reduced packaging. I am all about loving mother earth and reducing our landfills
