HOT!!! Air Miles Bulk Deal - 51 boxes of Cheerios (and likelyother GM cereals) for $2 - Spend $203, receive $201 in AM

Deal Link:
Price:
$0.04
Savings:
98%
Expiry:
June 17, 2020
Retailer:
Sobeys, Safeway
Great time to stock your shelves and donate the rest to your foodbank!

All varieties of Cheerios size 300-450g are included- not the family sized ones! Just look for the ones with the blue $3.99 sales price. Great expiry dates here in Calgary, 8-12 months. The miles are all shown on the receipt so no need for arguing later.

EDIT: Others have been successful with a variety of General Mills products, not just Cheerios

The math:
51 boxes @ $3.99 = 203.49

Airmiles:
Buy 5 Cheerios get 95 BAM x 10 = 950 BAM
Spend $25 on General Mills products get 100BAM x 8 = 800 BAM
Spend $200 at Sobeys/Safeway get 150 BAM = 150 BAM (Edit: only 125 Bam in Ontario and possibly elsewhere, taking cost to $0.09 per box)
Regular AM, 1 per $20 x 10 = 10 AM

Total Air Miles: 1910, which equates to $201.

Plus the 10 cents a litre off gas coupon, and any cash back advantages you may have.

I definitely appreciate this post, it's a heck of a deal but what are you going to do with 50 boxes of cereal?

I'm surprised your store even had that many boxes on the shelf.

Sobeys flyer In Alberta, hopefully nation wide:
Spend 200 offer bottom page 1
Buy $25 General Millls offer in 'Frozen and Dairy' - page 6 or 14
95 BAM blue bonus - back page.

Sorry, I don't know about Foodland

I did self checkout; the one in charge was really interested and appreciative of the food bank drive. She called several other coworkers over to look at my receipt, and I had to explain the miles combination.
None of them knew this deal was available this week, but I had only positive reactions.

Couldn't wait until tomorrow. Worked op. For some reason the spend $200 get 150am didn't show so they manually added. Yes $203 spend and 1960am back. Close enough. Got some really strange looks. Foodbank tomorrow. Thx op, local foodbank thanks you!!

Cheerios is "full of pesticides"? What? LOL
The FDA limit on glysophates is 130 parts per billion, and Cheerios comes in at roughly 30 ppb.
In Canada, the limit is 80 parts per billion.

Someone's definitely "full of" something.
