It’s been a while since there has been a great coupon deal stack – but the time is now. Here’s how to get £5+ of cereal for just 55p.
Nothing starts the day off better than a big bowl of Shreddies or Cheerios (in my book at least). If you’re the same, it’s a good month for all concerned.
There are currently two different coupon/cashback offers on Nestle cereals which can be stacked together and get yourself a bargain.
Here’s where you need to go, and how to get it:
What Cereals Can You Get?
For this deal, you have to get specific boxes of cereal to get the cheapest price, though you can work around it if you perhaps don’t eat them.
I’ll be writing about in the blog how to get the cheapest ones, which are these two boxes:
- Shreddies Original 415g
- Cheerios Multigrain 600g
Usually these cost £5+ for the two boxes (as they are larger boxes). But you can get that price down to just 55p for the two. Here’s how:
Tesco – Clubcard Prices
If you’re a Tesco Clubcard holder, they have been doing promotions on products called ‘Clubcard Price’, which gets you money off your shopping when you scan it. You’ll need to do this in store in order for the rest of the deal to work.
Usually, a pack of Nestle Cheerios 600g costs £3.30, but has a clubcard price of £2.
Also, the Nestle Shreddies usually costs £2.10, but the Clubcard price this month is £1.05.
This drops the price of the 2 cereal boxes down from £5.40 to just £3.05. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Cashback Deal: £1.50 off 2 boxes of Nestle Cereal
On the Nestle website, they have just launched a cashback/coupon deal which gets you £1.50 off when you buy two Nestle cereals.
They’ve given you the chance to print off a PDF coupon, or claim cashback on them via a form after you’ve bought it.
If it were me, I’d probably go with the cashback claim – which you can find on the Nestle website.
You’ll need to keep hold of the receipt to prove you bought two cereal boxes, and send off a picture to get your cashback.
The cashback can be claimed on any Nestle cereal of any size, so you might as well choose one that is on offer (or has other offers that you can use on top).
So buying the two cereals above gets you £1.50 cashback, dropping the price to £1.55 for the two. Already a good deal – but you can go one further.

Cashback: £1 off Nestle Cereal Boxes
To add to it, there is currently a cashback offer on the Shopmium app for Nestle cereal! Wahay!
You can claim £1 cashback on four different cereals. They are:
- Shreddies Original 675g
- Cheerios Original 600g
- Shredded Wheat 30 Biscuits
- Shredded Wheat 24 Biscuits
You can claim the cashback once for each box (so you can get up to £4 off in total).
For the purpose of this deal, we’ll only be claiming the £1 off Cheerios, as the Shreddies pack we’ll get isn’t the big 675g (as it’s not on sale).
This means that you’ll get £1 extra cashback on top of the £1.50 cashback from earlier. You’ll need to take a picture of the receipt like with the Nestle offer to get the cashback.

Total: £2.50 Cashback
So to quickly recap. You can get £1.50 in cashback from the Nestle website (when you buy 2 boxes), and you can get £1 in cashback on Shopmium.
That’s a total of £2.50 in cashback for buying the 2 boxes of cereal.
As the 2 boxes only cost £3.05 at Tesco (after the offer), the cashback that you claim will drop the price down to just 55p.
That works out at 27.5p per box. That’s over a 90% saving on the cereal. A great way to start your day, knowing it only cost you a few pence!
Both cashback offers and Tesco Clubcard offers last until the end of November.
It’s a fairly easy deal stack, and could keep your family stocked up for breakfast for a long while.
Make sure to keep hold of your receipt when you buy them too – as that’s the golden ticket to your cheap cereal.
If you manage to get your hands on some – be sure to let me know!
