I have to admit I am not a huge fan of poptarts, BUT I saw a deal I could not pass up on specially marked packages of poptarts.
Right now they want you to Discover all the flavors of poptarts and in turn, they will let you pick a reward.
Have fun discovering over 25 flavors, set up a Pop-Tarts reward account here, and enter unique codes printed inside specially marked packages and for each 5 codes you can choose one of the following rewards:
25 Photo prints from Shutterfly
2 Boxes of Pop Tarts toaster pastries
5 Music downloads
1 Magazine subscription or
1 Movie ticket up to $12 (e-movie money)
I opted for the movie ticket as it seems this is the best value. Now, you need to be sure to read the fine print on this promotion because it is interesting and I don't want you to be mislead. You can only enter 1 code per flavor of poptarts per account. Each PERSON can redeem up to 25 codes for 5 total rewards, but that means you have to have purchased 25 unique flavors of poptarts! If you notice in my picture, each box has a number at the top right. Make sure you get 5 different numbers for your rewards. The good news is, it is not a limit of 5 per household, but rather per person 13 or older. I could only find 5 unique numbers, so I will be doing this in my husbands name, my name and probably give one to my niece for a gift.
The terms and conditions also state you can only enter 5 codes a day, so keep that in mind.
So now the deal:
Randalls has the Poptarts on sale for only .99 a box when you buy 5. (You must buy in groups of 5 to get this price)
In the 3/28 RP, we got $1.25/3 coupons for poptarts. So the least common multiple of 3 and 5 is 15, (I know math NERD)
15 Pop tarts @ .99 each = $14.85
-5 x $1.25/3 insert coupons
so for $8.60, I got 15 boxes of poptarts and enough codes for 3 FREE movie tickets(up to $12 as long as I have 3 people I can sign up since I only got 5 unique flavors) I looked up qualifying theaters and it appears the Imax near me is included, YAY!
The Randalls sale goes through April 20th so I hope I can find some more flavors at other stores before then.
Another way to do the promotion is to purchase 9 boxes with 3 coupons and 1 more of the participating mix and match 5 items promotion items. Quaker instant oatmeals are included for $1.50 and we have $1 coupons-so your math would look like this:
9 Pop Tarts @ .99 = $8.91
1 Quaker oats @1.50
-3 x $1.25/3
= $5.66 for 10 items and 2 movie tickets*
(*you are actually one code short of two movie tickets, but the terms and condition state the following:
Participants who are Pop Tarts Sprinkling members, MAY receive an email during the program period containing a code. After receiving the code via email, participants can have 1 code credited to their account by logging in and following the links and instructions to enter the code.
