What are they ? - The majority of Kellogg's products are marked with the logo below . This logo is to indicate that inside or sometimes on the outside of the box there is a code that can be entered into your Family Rewards Account for points . Different products have different point values . When you enter the code they will show you the amount of points it was worth and your total accumulation up to that point . This account is a free service and comes at no cost to you . You do not enter personal information such as credit card , social security , etc . You do enter information like your phone number , e-mail and mailing address . The reason for entering that information is so that they can mail you either electronically or physically the items you earn with your Family Rewards Points and from specially marked boxes . They also use your e-mail to give you updates concerning your account and to on occasion send you bonus codes just for being a member . Bonus codes cost you nothing and are calculated into your account just like a code you would find on a purchased product .
How Does it Work ? - On the Kellogg's Family Rewards page there is a link to their Rewards "Store" . After you have entered your codes you then can use the points you collected as a form of "currency" . You can scroll through their "store" for books , bags , coupons , gift cards , charities , etc . You can donate your points toward a charity or use them to donate a book to a charity . All of that is further explained on the Schools & Charities section of their page . I have used my code points to purchase 2 reusable tote bags . If you know me I am all about ~ Reduce ~ Reuse ~ Repurpose ~ items . I hate keeping up or throwing away all those plastic bags that groceries are usually put it so , I try to always take a reusable bag with me when shopping . I have also used them to get a $5.00 Starbucks gift card . Those aren't the only gifts I've received from the Kellogg's brand . When you become a member of the Kellogg's Family Rewards program you are periodically given "bonus" items that do not deduct from your points . This means you get a product with out loosing any points collected thus far . Some of those things in the past have been Shutterfly freebie codes for Shutterfly products like address labels , photo book and luggage tags . You know me , I LOVEEEEEEEEE a Shuttefly product particularly if it is FREE !
|Example of a Specially Marked Box|
Kellogg's Specially marked boxes are anything ranging
from cereal to their new Special K items like the one above .
Long story short - I received 2 tote bags , 3 bottles of nail polish , 2 gift cards , 3 children's books and several other Shutterfly items all for eating my breakfast......and sometimes a midnight snack . To me , collecting the codes ,and taking five minutes a week or every other week to enter all of them is worth it . Again , I am going to be eating cereal anyway , might as well get a prize from my cereal box . And as mentioned before codes can be found on Kellogg's products beyond cereal boxes . Special K chips , cereal bars , etc . have also had codes in them . Just remember to look for the Family Rewards logo when purchasing if you want to get a box with a code inside .
"Breaking it Down" post was of some help to you . I hope that it will make your breakfast a little more pleasurable knowing that your box of cereal may also provide you with a fun gift !
