General Mills Giveaway from My Blog Spark

8 Feb


I have been away from my blog for way too long!  I absolutely miss writing about my savings and just blogging in general.  I have been tossing around the idea of reviving my blog and doing something a little new.  We will definitely see.  

Being that I used to blog all of time, I still get contacted by various companies about promotions and giveaways.  I was very excited about an opportunity that came my way from My Blog Spark and General Mills.  I MISS getting freebies and I miss being able to share freebies with my readers.   So here is a giveaway!  

My little ones were excited to see what the Fed Ex man delivered while they were at school. I received my prize pack from My Blog Spark with a full size box of General Mills Trix cereal and two tickets to the movies.  I haven’t had the chance to use the tickets yet because our family has been fighting the flu…but I plan on using the tickets for a date night, hopefully this weekend.  

My Blog Spark is kind enough to let me host a giveaway of a prize pack! Here is what you need to do to enter…

1. You have to be a follower of my blog. If you aren’t already you can sign up HERE.

2. Share your family’s favorite General Mills Cereal.  My children (and I) LOVE Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Honey Nut Cheerios!  (Leave a comment below)

3. Get an extra entry for liking/following me on Facebook.

I will select a winner at random on Tuesday, February 19, 2013!  


Box Tops for Education Giveaway!!!

25 May

I am very excited about this giveaway!  MyBlogSpark, General Mills and SuperValu are sponsoring this giveaway!  If you have school age children, you are probably familiar with Box Tops for Education.  Clipping box tops from participating products earns money for your local schools.  Over $10 million was earned during the 2008-2009 school year!  That is awesome!!

So MyBlogSpark sent a $25 American Express to me and I challenged myself to see how many box tops I could collect while shopping with my card.  I shopped at my local Farm Fresh (Market) and scored over 70 box tops to send to my daughter’s school, but the best part is that I got lots of great stuff for my kids like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Toaster Strudels, Chex, Fiber One Bars and Progresso Soups, just to name a few.   Farm Fresh was running a promotion where you got 50 bonus box tops when you purchased $20 in participating items.

The SuperValu family of stores includes ACME, Albertsons, Cub, Farm Fresh and Jewel-Osco.  They have created a website that tracks your Box Tops contribution and the school’s redemption.  The site also offers recipes, coupons, store promotions and much more!

Want to win your own $25 American Express gift card?  How many Box Tops can you get with $25?   Click HERE for a full list of participating products and brands.  All entries must be submitted by 11:59p.m.(ET) on May 27, 2010.  To enter, leave a comment below with your name and favorite Box Top product.  The winner will be posted on May28, 2010 and will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to respond.
