Target, General Mills, and Crayola Back to School Deals and Giveaway

Back to School is in full force. We started back a week ago and my son is already hating homework. I love Back to School times because its the best time to snag great deals!  I always love it when I can find coupons and deals on snacks because Little M has to take a snack to school everyday.  That is why its awesome that Crayola and General Mills have teamed up with Target to offer some amazing back to school deals during the month of August. Check them out below and you can also go right now to check out where you’ll find even more coupons for back-to-school, recipes, and a special 2012 “Grocery Savvy Crayola® Back To School” Sweepstakes!

Available exclusively at Target Stores during the month of August:

  • Purchase specially marked Nature Valley® Crunchy Granola Bars, Pillsbury® Toaster Strudel® Pastries, and Big G Cereal packages and you could save up to $5 on Crayola products 
  • Participating Big G cereal boxes will feature a fun Crayola coloring activity on pack 
  • Save on General Mills products when you purchase specially marked Crayola 64-CT Crayons 

I was given this awesome prize pack: a box of Cheerios, a $20 Target giftcard, and an 8 ct Crayola Dry-Erase crayons and I get to give one away as well! 


Doesnt this look like an awesome giftpack? Baby E loved the crayons and I was so happy that they were dry-erase! They even came with a cloth. I put my $20 giftcard to good use at Target and picked up some snacks for Little M and a new outfit.

Enter on the Rafflecoptor form below. This giveaway will run from 8/29 to 9/11 at 10:59 pm CST.
