Do you spend more on groceries during the school year or during the summer? Many people spend more during the school year. It’s easy to see how. During the school year you might be more money on groceries if you’re buying ready to eat or easy to prepare foods for breakfast and lunch. I’m talking about items like cereal, granola bars, waffles, yogurt, fruit snacks and such. And then there’s the dinner items and the gas. If you’re anything like me you do more running around during the school year, to things like sports, dances, playgroups, CCD and PTA meetings to name but a few. Those things require gas in your tank. Plus, with all that running you may end up purchasing food items to help you make quick and easy meals. Things like tacos and dinner kits. Stop & Shop knows what’s happening and is currently offering some back to school savings that you’ll want to check out.
Through September 10 you’ll find great sale pricing on the participating General Mills brands at Stop & Shop including Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Reeses Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cookie Crisp Sprinkles, Cookie Crisp, Fruit Snacks, Old El Paso Dinner Kits, Pillsbury Strudel, Pillsbury Scrambles, Green Giant Boxed Vegetables, Yoplait Yo-Plus Multi-Pack, Fiber One Yogurt Multi-Pack, Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookies, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Pillsbury Sweet Rolls and Yoplait Delights.
Plus you can find some additional savings for you or your school, depending on which Stop & Shop location you shop.
If your Stop & Shop store sells gas
* Buy four (4) participating General Mills items and you’ll automatically earn 100 points on your Stop & Shop card
* For every 100 points earned, you’ll save 10¢ per gallon of gas (Please note: Total discount cannot exceed price per gallon)
* Just swipe your Stop & Shop Card at the pump to redeem your Gas Rewards
If your Stop & Shop store doesn’t sell gas
* For those Stop & Shop locations without gas stations, don’t worry – you’re not left out of the savings – if you buy five (5) participating General Mills products, you will receive 20 Bonus Box Tops for your school
I went shopping yesterday and stocked up on cereal for TJ, veggies for the freezer and yogurt for CJ and I.
