Walgreens Sales: Special K Pastry Crisps 34 Cents Per Box!

Rumor has it that Walgreens shoppers are in for a sweet treat when they purchase Kellogg's Special K Pastry Crisps this week!

The Pastry Crisps are on sale 3 boxes for $8 through Saturday, January 16, with 3000 Balance Rewards points available to use on a future purchase (like $3 in buying power.)

But Hip2Save is reporting that the Strawberry and the Brown Sugar varieties are actually generating 6000 Balance Reward points (like $6 in buying power) when you purchase three boxes in the same transaction.

I don't know for sure if this is a glitch or just an unadvertised deal.  Either way, here's how the math would break down:

  • Kellogg's Special K Pastry Crisps -- on sale 3 boxes for $8, with 6000 Balance Reward points currently awarded when you buy three boxes in the same transaction.
  • Buy three boxes for $8.
  • Use the $1 off 3 coupon from the 1/10 Red Plum insert.
  • Pay $7 out of pocket, then get your $6 in buying power for a future purchase.
  • Your final price is like buying 3 boxes for $1 -- so just 34 cents per box!  That's well over 80% off sale price after all discounts.
I would get to Walgreens sooner rather than later on this one -- because either a) shelves will clear or b) it will turn out that this is a glitch and will be corrected.
