There is a great coupon up on Target’s site for $5 off any (4) 10 oz + boxes of Kellogg’s Cereal.  (It’s a manufacturer coupon).

This is perfect timing for anyone headed to the Kroger one day sale on Thursday or Friday (depending on your area).   Kellogg’s products will be 50% off!!

For more Kellogg’s coupons and deals see the Kroger Weekly Ad deals.

(thanks Monica!)

      For me, the Nestle cocoa coupon printed off at $1/2, and for any variety! And it is a manufacturers coupon! Yay!

    • Vanessaa

      Hi All!!! Okay, I have not said anything and just keep trying not to think about it BUT………….. I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE…LOL
      I cant print the Target coupons… Any suggestions?!?! No matter what I try they will not print. I try to do the download and it is never successful. I have missed out on soooo many good coupons but now with the $5/4 Kelloggs… HELP!!! Thanks!

      • I have had the same problem! Any suggestions??? Thanks

        • I am having the same problem. I’ve tried repeatedly for 15 minutes. No luck! HELP!

        • Vanessa

          SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…. Were any of you who couldnt print the Target coupons able to do something that fixed it?? I tried updating Java and deleting the original coupon printer and neither of those suggestions worked.. Any other suggestions? BTW, how do you change your browser? Thanks a bunch for any and all suggestions!!!

      • michal

        do you have window 7? target doesnt work well with window 7.

      • Sarah D

        try updating Java – that is what finally worked for me. I also uninstalled the coupon printer from the start menu, ran an ad ware check and virus check before updating Java. Hope this helps

      • lauren

        use firefox, it just worked fine for me but internet explorer did not.

      • I just got back from Kroger. They would not accept my coupon. The whole transaction went through and then she noticed it had a Targrt symble on the coupon. I told her it was a manufacturers coupon. I asked to see the manager and they still did not honor my coupon. They had trouble canceling everything out. She had to void the whole transaction. Any ideas?

        • Debbie

          Kroger at St Andrews Rd refused to take my 5.oo coupon and 1.00 coupon from Target. Best I stay with Publix on Gervais.

      • Carol

        How ironic, Target coupons are the only ones that I CAN print!!

    • how do you close browsers to install the printer??

      • Pat

        Close every window open except for the window that is trying to download the printer.

    • SM

      Can this coupon be combined with $1/1 coupons from Red Plum and from inside the packages?

      • Lana

        No, it is a manufacteres coupon.

        • Stacy

          Yes. My Krogers took both with no issues. I ended up getting 8 boxes of ceral (used 2 of the $5 off and eight of the $1 off red plums) with no issues at all!!!! it was the best cereal deal of my couponing career!!!! :O)

    • My coupon for $5/4 offer for Kelloggs cereal, printed out, but had no amount on it. Is anyone else having this issue? Thanks

      • Sarah Beth

        Mine had the amount on it. Not sure why it isn’t working.

    • Michelle

      It keeps telling me to install the coupon printer over and over. It says the coupon will print after I click “OK,” but it never does. Any suggestions?

      • Michelle

        Never mind. I switched from Slimbrowser to Internet Explorer, and it worked fine.

    • Christine

      Maybe this is a stupid question, but will Kroger accept this coupon even though it has Target printed on it. I don’t want to try and use something I shouldn’t be?

      • marina

        They should accept it because it says manufacturers coupon at the top. Although I have had grouchy cashiers who refuse to scan those just because they have someone else’s logo on it and I end up asking for the manager who usually lets them through.

        • Latonia

          I went today and unfortunately, the cashier AND the manager both insisted it was a Target coupon despite the HUGE manufacturer’s coupon across the top. It upset me so I dumped all of my grocery back on the belt (All $105 worth that I was getting for $35!!). I’m not missing out on the deals, I’ll just go to another Kroger that knows how to treat a loyal customer.

          • Connie

            The cashier did the same thing to me this morning. I showed her it was just from the Target website and it was a manf. coupon. She called the manager and he said they could accept it “this one time”. Give me a break. With my other coupons, I was able to get 8 boxes of cereal for less than $1 each so I’m happy.

            • Patty Brennan

              My Kroger in Maryville TN will not let me use any coupon with any other store names on them. In addition to not letting me use this I also was not able to use other Target and Walgreens coupons. I had the cashier ask the manager.

        • Vicki

          I just returned from Kroger where they tell me that they will not accept any competitor’s coupons. This coupon may be a manufacturer coupon but Kroger in Columbia, SC does not accept it because it had a Target symbol on it. You would think that they would want to accept competitor’s coupons so that you would shop there and possibly spend more.

      • Natasha

        I know at least 2 of the Krogers here in Augusta, GA won’t accept anything branded as any other store. Regardless of it being a manufacturer coupon or not.. :(

    • thank you, Pat!

    • I don’t see the Kellogg’s coupon on the Target site. Am I just completely missing it?

      • Nevermind, I found it! :)

    • Sarah D

      Was anyone able to get 2 coupons to print? What did you do – having trouble getting second to print on any Target Q’s

      • Tanya

        I can only get one to print on the Target website. Boo!

      • Jamie

        I think they have put a limit to (1) print on some of them :(

    • Sandy

      My Kroger in Athens, GA is grouchy about taking any coupons over $1 off. I wonder if it will work! I will definitely give it a try.

    • Stacy

      I can’t find the coupon! I’ve gone through every page. What am I doing wrong?

      • Mina

        Hit the “Next Page” option at the end of the row of page numbers. It’s on the final page of the grocery coupons, but the page # does not show in the little boxes of page options.

    • Colleen

      I can’t get it to work either and I have printed them before… don’t know what is going on. I tried from Safari and Firefox. Both times it said it printed but it did not. So now even if it did decide to work, I would have “printed” my limit so I’d just get that box that tells me that and wastes my paper and ink. Bummer.

      • Melissa

        I tried to print the second one for Kelloggs and it also said it had printed but didn’t! Kroger took my coupon with no problem at all. I wondered if the target logo would be an issue.

    • ashley

      Can you use this with any other coupons on the 4 boxes?

      • Mina

        You cannot use it with other manufacturer coupons on any of the 4 boxes. The one q covers all 4 boxes.

    • ashley

      Why is it that we can only print one Target coupon now? I thought it was supposed to be two. Shouldn’t it be?

      • Mina

        They can set individual limits for each coupon. The limit for this q is 1 print. Most offers have a limit of 2.

    • Jen

      I went through the link but there was no coupon for kelloggs cereal

    • Dave

      does Kroger take Target like Publix does?

    • Denise

      Went to Kroger on my way to work this morning; just to “test” the Target coupon. Bought Special K, Apple Jacks, Frosted Flakes, Raisen Bran and Pops and it took off the $5.00 without hassle plus I had a $1.00 off for special K. Spent only $2.72 for 5 boxes of cereal….A very good start to my day! Going back after work to get cookies etc.

    • Rachael

      I just got back from Kroger. They were VERY reluctant to use the coupon, even after I pointed out that it was a manufacturer coupon. They kept saying it was a Target coupon. They eventually tried it— they had to override their computers b/c their system said it “exceeded” my amount, but they eventually let me use it. I bought 4 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats for a total of $3.20. I’m happy.

    • christy

      I couldn’t use my 5 off coupon. They said that it was a target coupon she even called the manager and she said no.

    • LISA

      tried to usethe $5 off of 4 boxes of kellogs cereal, Kroger said they couldn’t take it cause it had the Target logo on it, they said its a Target store coupon :(

    • Bonnie

      My cashier didn’t have a problem with it being issued from target. But she wouldn’t accept it because I was “already saving $5 from the sale”. ??? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard in a while. Oh well; just smile anyway.

    • Megan

      I was told it is a Target coupon and was not allowed to use it, I also went to customer service and they denied it too. Too bad they can’t seem to figure out a standard rule. Ridiculous to make everyone jump through so many hoops. All in all very grateful for the other good deals!

    • My husband and i have tried unsuccessfully to install cpn activator,nor have i seen the cereal deal.I’ve been able to print Targets cpns up until this month .When we click on target from Southern Savers we get Hot Coupon World,Which does not have this months deals.Totally frustrated when you wait for the month to begin and run into this problem.Any suggestions on how to print when you know you’ve been able to for months and know you’ve used this cpn printer many times????????

    • ACW

      Thank you *so* much. I was hesitant after reading others’ experiences, but the $5/4 printable worked at my Kroger.

      My scenario:
      2 boxes Pops 1.59 ea
      2 boxes Fruit Loops 1.59 ea
      1 box Crispix 1.74 ea
      1 box Keebler Flipsides 1.99 ea
      1 box Keebler Club crackers 1.99 ea
      1 can Kroger coffee 2.89 ea

      I used:
      $5/4 printable
      $1/1 Crispix from a November RedPlum
      $1/2 Keebler crackers and
      $1.50/coffee WYB 3 boxes Kellogg cereal (printable)

      I spent $6.85 *and* got two free Kellogg’s cereal bowls (1 per 2 boxes bought)

      TY TY TY!!!

    • Megan

      I got an answer from Kroger customer service online and they stated the following “Thank you for contacting The Kroger Company. In regards to your email; The coupon policy does state the Manufacturer coupons are accepted, Only one per like item, however if it is a Target coupon, we do not accept competitor coupons. This being said the store does have the right to accept limit or decline the use of any coupon. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Thanks again.”

    • meghan

    • Lisa

      I betcha there is a way to copy the picture to another application and just cut the Target symbol before printing, but I’ll be danged if I know how to do it.

    • Lorie

      The cashier at my Kroger wouldn’t take the $5 coupon, even though it clearly states it’s a manufacturer coupon. I bought the cereal anyway because it was still a good deal but I’m not sure if I should have. I didn’t ask for a manager either, which I should have done. Ugh! I’m frustrated.

    • A friend of mine works for Kroger. She has spoken to a lady at corporate about taking Manufacturer’s coupons with other store logos on them. The lady at corporate said IF the coupon is a Manufacturer’s coupon, and only has another store’s logo on it, then they should take it. IF the coupon is a Manufacturer’s coupon and says ‘for use only at’, or ‘to be used at’, the WILL NOT accept it.

      The Target coupon does not have that wording on it, merely the Target bullseye logo. They SHOULD take it. I haven’t tried it myself yet though. Good luck!

    • Phillis

      Woo hoo! Just got my cereal for $1.20 for 4 boxes at Kroger. No problem with using coupon.

    • lucile

      I tried the coupon at my Krogers, no luck.I am going back during the day to talk to a manager. I do not understand how some stores will take the q but other will not.I got some great deals thanks

    • Holly

      I tried using my $5 off 4 boxes of Kellogs coupon at Kroger in N Little rock Arkansas…ugh…had a grouchy cashier at 8am this morning, at first she used the “this is a Target coupon” argument,after I very nicely asked her to scan it anyway to see if it worked, she said it “excdeded my limit?” I had too many coupons for the same product…I was also using the printed out buy 3 kellogs brand and get 1.50 off, AND I also had 2 smart source (blinkie machine)q’s for 1 $ off any box of fruit loops, so in my mind I’m thinking I could use all three? Maybe my thinking was off…she only let me use the smart source q (which I tried explaining was a STORE q not a MANF q) to no avail…by this time I was embarrassed and frustrated so I was only able to use the smart source q for a total of 2$ off, still a good deal I guess, but this was my first “run in” with a cashier….ugh….

    • Amanda

      My husband scored 2 boxes of Rice Krispies, 1 box of Pops, and I box of Fruit Loops for $1.71. I’m so thankful Dickson’s Kroger took the coupon :). I have already donated two boxes :)

    • Ashley

      The Publix in Aiken DOES NOT take Target store coupons without manager approval, nor does it take coupons from stores such as Walgreens or other drug stores.Neither are considered a competitor, because neither are grocery stores.
