Kroger Free Milk Deal

The Kroger free milk deal is even more awesome once you pair in a Catalina promotion running on Kellogg’s cereals!

I ran by yesterday to see what cereals were actually part of the sale and grabbed three boxes of Kellogg’s cereal.  I used one coupon (though it’s still a very awesome deal with no coupons) and ended up with 3 boxes of cereal and 1 gallon of milk all for less than the regular price of milk!!  I don’t care if you hate cereal… in the end you saved on milk.

The Deal:

Buy 3 participating boxes of cereal and get 1 free gallon of milk (the milk rings up free so grab it in the same transaction).

Participating cereals on sale for $2 ea.:

All Post kids cereals
General Mills Peanut Butter Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs and Cocoa Puffs
Kellogg’s Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, and Corn Pops

The Catalina Offer:

Buy 3 Kellogg’s Cereals in the same transaction and get $2 off your next purchase (coupon prints after you checkout).

Deal Idea:

(2) Kellogg’s Corn Pops 12.2 oz, $2 ea.
(1) Kellogg’s Apple Jacks or Froot Loops, 12.2 oz, $2 ea.
(1) gallon of milk
-$1/3 Kellogg’s Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops, cereals printable
Total Due: $5
Get Back: $2 off Catalina and $1.50 from Checkout 51 (for Corn Pops & Milk)
That makes it 37¢ each!!

Deal Idea#2

      Is it just Kroger brand milk or can I get Mayfield?

      • savannahm0m

        Pretty sure it is just the Kroger brand.

      • It’s just the housebrand.

        • Bethany

          Do you think organic simple truth is included too?

          • Dawn

            I saw tags at my Kroger for the Simple Truth 1/2 gallons as participating

          • jennc

            maybe 1/2 gallons for organic. the tag will say.

      • At my store there were tags to show what milk was included. I was really surprised to see that 1/2 gallons of soymilk and organic milk were part of it!

        • MeMe

          My store also included Lactate 1/2 gallon.

    • dawg4

      Did the Checkout 51 offer (milk and Corn Pops) expire already? I don’t see it on their site. I see $1 off wyb 2 corn pops.

      • MeMe

        You get $1 for the Corn Pops and $.50 for the milk.

    • Lynn

      Ibotta has a milk offer too! :)

    • Lynn

      Ibotta has a milk offer too! :)

    • Lynn

      Ibotta has a milk offer too! :)

    • Lynn

      Ibotta has a milk offer too! :)

      • Thanks for reminding me!

    • rebecca

      Can you get chocolate milk?

    • gingerinCA

      Off-topic, but don’t know where to ask: Did Kellogg’s Family Rewards do something where it got rid of old points? I just logged in for first time in long time, and had 0 points. Last time I logged in, I had TONS o points. I’m all, what the heck?!

      • Katie

        I learned the hard way that they expire if you don’t add codes for a period of time, just like the Coke rewards do.

        • gingerinCA

          Wow. I guess I just learned the hard way, too. Wow. Thanks, though! :)

          • livnlol

            This happened to me but I called them and they reinstated my points.

    • Kaitlyn

      Are there any coupons in any of the inserts that will work for this deal? Unfortunately i do not have access to a printer

    • Kaitlyn

      The $1/3 coupon is also in the RP 2/2 insert. This is great for someone who does not have access to printing like me :)

    • Megan Sebers

      I have a question is there a limit on the catalane? I want to buy around 30 boxes of cereal

      • MeMe

        You have to do them separate. Plus don’t use a catalina to pay for another deal.

    • Raquel Woodall

      I did the free milk deal twice in one transaction four boxes of cereals two apple jacks and two captin crunch and two nature valley bars and I only got a $1 catalina off my next purchase? am I missing something?

      • lindsay

        the catalina is only for kelloggs cereal. I don’t think captain crunch is kelloggs.

        • That would be it. Captain Crunch is a Quaker cereal.

        • That would be it. Captain Crunch is a Quaker cereal.

    • rgoobs

      How does 3 boxes of cereal at $2 each ($6.00) + milk ($2-$3) and only using one $1 coupon make it “Total Due: $5” ??
      [TOTAL minimum $8 minus $1 = $7 ]

      • gingerinCA

        Because you’re forgetting that the milk is free. You don’t have to have a Q for it; as long as you have 3 of the cereals, the milk rings up 0.

    • Kim

      does anyone know if kellogg’s crave is one of the cereals I can pick from?

      • It isn’t included in the free milk promo. (Special K isn’t included either.) Sorry. :(

      • Laura

        The non $2 kelloggs cereals in the free milk deal are:

        Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, $3.49

        Kellogg’s Froot Loops Treasures or with Marshmallows, $3.39

        Kellogg’s Cinnamon Jacks, $3.39

        That’s it for Kelloggs cereal besides the $2 ones Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, and Corn Pops

    • Skirnir Hamilton

      Honey Nut Cheerios was also included at my local Kroger. I was rather dismayed on how many of the cereals were included at the $2 price. Did do the deal, 2 Honey Nut Cheerios $2 each, and 1 Eggo Waffles $2 – $1 off 2 coupon on cereals = so paid $5 and received free milk. To me a good deal, but we only go through one gallon a week, so probably will do the deal again, if it is a two week deal.

      • pjwill139

        We also use a gallon a week so I freeze our extra milk. Sometimes I will split it into 2 half gallons and that way its easier to defrost and you don’t waste any by using a half gallon at a time.

      • Laura

        I got 2 honey nut cheerio & a capt crunch, same coupon, paid $5. Milk is $3.50 anyway so it was a good enough deal for me. I don’t like any of the $2 kelloggs cereals.

        At checkout I rec’d a catalina coupon for $1.50/3 GM cereals so next time I’ll get 3 cheerios. I’d pay $3.50 for milk anyway so for just $1 more I’ll have 3 more cheerios.

        • Laura

          Forgot to mention look for specially marked boxes of cheerios with free Justice League DC comic books inside. In my 2 boxes I got a #5 and a #8.

    • Caroline

      Does Kroger sell Alpha-Bits? There are $1 coupons for those!

    • MB

      I didn’t get my catalina, who can I contact?

    • Laura

      There are more versions of GM cereals included in the free milk deal:

      General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios, $2 (free DC comic in specially marked boxes)

      General Mills Cinnamon or Chocolate Toast Crunch, $2

      General Mills Hershey’s Cookies N Cream, $2

      And they are generating a catalina coupon for $1.50/3 for your next GM cereals purchase.

    • Amanda Lorene Mejia

      I did the free milk 4 times in the same transaction…….:-) I did nature valley and fiber one brownies….and some cereal…..I had $1/1 GM cereal coupons….and $1.25/1 nature valley or fiber one

    • Eduardo

      • Jamie Buchanan Benningfield
