10 Boxes of Cereal for $1

March 18th, 2010 at 06:58 pm

It was supposed to be 10 boxes of cereal for $0. I went to Safeway to take advantage of the cereal deal last week. Five boxes of cereal for $5. Of course, I'm not the only one who wanted the Quaker Squares. I have 10 coupons for $1 off a box. So, 10 boxes for free. I ended up with a raincheck.

I went in today and they had 9 boxes. I waited while they checked the back. No luck. The nice front office person said to pick out any box of cereal I wanted to make up the 10th box. The generosity of that gesture just about knocked me down. I chose Quaker Life cereal since it was a Quaker product and on sale this week. No coupon for Life cereal so I had to pay $1. Still, a great deal!

All the boxes went to the local food pantry as a donation. They were as happy as I was.

Thank you Safeway and thank you Safeway front office person.

    May I ask how many ounces were there altogether?

    Excellent--And I'm with you on the oat squares. They're delicious and make a great snack

    What a great customer service, and it will lead you to go back there again soon, I bet! I think so many employees these days do not understand that good customer service is insurance for repeat business. Either that, or they don't care. I'm glad they took good care of you!

    Joan, I'm not sure of ounces. I'll look next time I'm at Safeway. Each box was at least 16oz. Since it was to be free and then donated it didn't matter to me.

    Jerry, The woman who helped me apologized for my inconvience and seemed genuinely sincere. She seemed to care.
