Good Prizes From Kellogg's Family Rewards

Sorry, I know it's been a while. I'll try to be better.

Kellogg's has always offered tons of free points, but no good prizes. Apparently, that's changing, as they have added gift cards, including ones to Amazon, to their rewards page. $5 gift cards are in the 7,500-8,000 point range, depending on the merchant.

Details on Postmate...

So here's the deal with the Postmates offer in the last post: You do get $100 in delivery fees, but they have to be used in the first seven days. This could get interesting.

Postmates Referral Code

Has anyone ever used Postmates, the delivery service? I used them once to order lunch and they seemed to pass the "walk and chew gum" test. It wasn't a cheap service, but that's okay, because I used a delivery credit. Apparently, they do any sort of delivery, not just food.


I got an email from them that if you sign up and use my referral code, ihgz3, you'll get $100 in delivery fee credit. I have no idea if that applies to just your first few orders or what, but I figure that it can't hurt to give it a try.


For the purpose of full disclosure, I have no idea what, if anything, I get for referring you, but there's no reason not to share the love.

Last Day to Enter My Coke Rewards Points

This is it! There's even a countdown clock on the website. Enter your codes now or forever hold your peace (I think.). The only thing we know about the new program is what they say on their website, which is "Soon, getting rewarded will be easier and more convenient than ever before."

That doesn't give us much in the way of details, other than to tell us that it will be more difficult to get rewards and more of a PITA to do so.

KFR: Possible 200 points

I'm glad that Kellogg's Family Rewards isn't going entirely away from codes. They're still giving plenty of bonuses. No idea if this one is targeted but, last night, I got a link for a 200 point bonus just for signing in. Definitely worth checking your email.

Here's the link. It says right in the link address that it's for inactivity so, if you have actually been loyal to Kellogg's, you may get screwed.

Ibotta Sign-Up Bonus

For those who haven't joined Ibotta yet, it is, as a character in an 80s French movie would say, super cool.

Ibotta is a shopping rebate site for grocery stores. You go in to the supermarket (or drugstore or place like that) and buy stuff like you normally would. Then, you look in your Ibotta app (I do the looking afterward so that I don't get tempted to buy stuff.) and, if the item is there, you take a picture of your receipt and they give you money back. Usually, it's for branded stuff, but occasionally it's for produce, milk, etc.

Best of all, if you sign up for Ibotta through my link you get $10. I also get something if you do something (I'm not sure what either something is, but that's my link, anyway.).

Remember, Ibotta = "Buy stuff that you would have bought anyway but get stuff back afterwards."

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 200 Points?

Most of my KFR emails go directly into the junk folder, but two days ago, I noticed one that was giving 200 free points just for signing into my account. So I did.

If you do the same with your KFR correspondence, double check it. You may get lucky.

Goodbye My Coke Rewards

We knew it had to end, but who wanted it to be so sudden? My Coke Rewards announced that it will be ending this year (Enter codes by March 22, redeem by June 30.), for something that is "easier, more fun, and more convenient than ever."

First, I'm not a fan of the Oxford Comma.

Second, I'm sure we will have a lot of words to describe the new program, but "easier, fun and convenient" won't be among them.

The video on their homepage did not give any information about the new program whatsoever, but I think we all know what happens when a company "enhances" its reward program, especially when they claim it is based on member feedback. I'm sure we'll all be wondering, which member was is that thought the program would be more fun if the prizes were worse and harder to get.
