Yesterday I briefly touched upon an intriguing way to buy a lot of cereal to get $200 off a United vacation package.Today I think I may have found the tools of the trade when I came across an upcoming 2-day-only promo with ShopRite where you can earn a $20 grocery voucher after spending $100 in gift cards! (HT: FatWallet).
For 2 days only (11/27 and 28), you can get a voucher for $20 off when you purchase any gift card at ShopRite (excluding ShopRite store gift cards). Gas gift cards, Visa, AmEx, MasterCard, eBay, and other merchant gift cards seem to be eligible!
You can then use the $20 vouchers to buy the speciality-marked Kelloggs boxes to use for the United promo for $200 (while also stacking coupons, I’d assume).
In the past, I have had much success with these types of promos at PathMark and A&P store (blog post). I remember visiting my local supermarkets multiple times a day to take advantage of the “free money” opportunity, and it’s safe to say I saved a lot of money on groceries for a few months.
