Life Made Delicious Makes Up For the Peanut Butter Cheerios Shortage


If you didn’t find Peanut Butter Cheerios on the shelves this weekend to use your BOGO coupon, Life Made Delicious wants to make it up to everyone.

We love “spreading” the news about Peanut Butter Cheerios – and may have been a little too excited, with not all stores yet fully-stocked!

We’d like to make it up to all existing “Buy One, Get One Peanut Butter Cheerios” coupon-holders, so make sure you’re opted-in to receive Websaver emails!

Next week, we’ll be sending you an even more exciting offer for a FREE box of Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Nut or Peanut Butter Cheerios (with a much larger window in which to redeem – until May 15th)!

So make sure you are opted in for Websaver emails in case it is a unique email link, and if not, we will share as soon as we get our link.

    When they came out with this coupon I told GM this would happen . The same thing with the free special k chips the stores took them out of stock for the weekend and then on Monday they had them back this is what happened again this past weekend . Monday they had them on the shelf .

    I read all the posts from Smart Canucks, then check out the responses.I have noticed a disturbing trend on many sites, including this one. When answering a question, use a positive attitude rather than a superior one. An answer or comment should never make anyone feel stupid that they asked a question. Creating a non-judgemental atmosphere makes it pleasant for everyone.

    How nice of them! Now hopefully Websaver will actually send me the coupon this time. I am guessing the opt in is the check box under the “modify profile” button on Websaver?

    YAY! I hate it when these coupons go to waste! The one-two day coupons never work for me…ever! This is great!

  11. Sophia Laframboise says:

    Glad to see they are making up for this. I didn’t get to use my coupon because they weren’t on the shelves now I’m gonna be out of town (with no computer to access the internet) so I’m gonna miss this one too 🙁 this sucks!

  12. Tania says:

    Will you resend another coupon in the mail?

    Does anyone know how this marketing tool works? The majority of people seem to be angry or upset more than anything else, yet, they choose it time after time. Why? Kellogg’s customer rep. couldn’t answer this question to me a few weeks ago… There must be something attractive to them in this type of advertizing despite the frustrated customers.

      Sometimes it does work Alisa, it gets them more advertising as people (like SC) are posting don’t forget to go use your coupon this weekend etc
      But that relies on the stores having them in stock when they are supposed to be
      My local store did have them on Friday, a neighbour picked up a box at full price. Saturday when I went they did not, they had pulled them, yesterday when I stopped by for bread – full display of them.
      It is almost like the store thinks the coupon costs them money

  14. Gnormangnome says:

    I agree Linda. Unless, of course, the question is a stupid one.

  15. alisa1 says:

    FallenPixels, that’s exactly what I mean, the stores don’t seem to like them either. And even if everything goes nicely, the hassle leaves a negative note for a lot of people.
    As for the reminders, they haven’t been around as long as the one day coupons are, so, this marketing strategy was invented to work without them. Anyway, they would probably get their reminders even if the coupon, good like this, was for a week or two.
    I wish we had a marketing industry insider on here to explain such a “phenomenon”. Or is it just me who likes to know, how we are tricked into buying something, lol

    • FallenPixels says:

      I would imagine part of it is a much smaller % get redeemed due to time constraints and looking for a sale over time
      If we found the bought cheerios at $3 instead of $5 we would be much more likely to buy them for the free box, but at $5 some people said they wouldn’t bother even when they did find the PB ones

      I am sure they would rather make $5 plus a smaller % redeemed than $3 and more redeemed as a marketing budget goes.

      Personally, I don’t think its worth the bad feeling with people, I don’t think my post is all that confusing but people are still asking will it be sent directly, how do they know if you redeemed etc – it will be a limited time (online) coupon so people who didn’t redeem will likely miss ordering it too

    I wouldn’t say I’m an “industry insider” but my husband works in a grocery store in management. You have to understand that many grocery stores have very small warehouses–they get new shipments in every day, and so, what’s on the shelf, is what is there. Also, they usually aren’t clued in by the manufacturers about these limited time coupons. So, they just order their normal amount–which sells out immediately when the coupon date rolls around. Then, because they’ve sold out, they order a full shelf’s worth to refill. So when you go back in, of course the shelf is full again. It’s not a nefarious plot.

    Believe me, the store’s staff HATE running out of coupon items, because they get angry customers yelling at them and swearing they’ll never shop there again, when it isn’t in their control. Especially because manufacturer’s often “short” stores–that is, the store orders 100 boxes of something, but the manufacturer only gives them 50, because “we don’t have enough”.

    The manufacturers need to do a better job of alerting the stores to when these kinds of coupons will happen and giving them a good supply. If you ask me, it’s the manufacturer’s fault, and they’re doing it on purpose, hoping that the grocery store will take the blame.

    FTR I alerted my husband to this coupon, and he said “Oh great, we don’t even carry that line.” (He works in a smaller store, with not that much square footage, so they can’t carry every variety of everything–there’s just no room.) What lines are carried by which stores is set by head office over a period of months, so it wasn’t something he had any control over, especially this short notice. He said he was just glad he wasn’t scheduled to work that weekend, so he didn’t have to hear all the complaints.

    How do you opt in to receive websaver emails???

  19. Dn says:

    I have family who worked for a large chain and they do take items off the shelf so they do not have to deal with the coupons they know they are coming out they know the dates and they have done this for yrs and still do to this date .

  20. EasterSummerSolsticeStarSpangledSky says:

    I was so lucky! There were stacks of boxes on the shelf when I went to Metro; all Cheerios were on sale for $3.99, I got Apple Cinnamon Cheerios at $3.99 and got the Peanut Butter Cheerios for free! I do hope Cheerios creates nut cluster version with pure maple syrup.

  21. wayne frank says:

    i tried 4 times to get the peanut butter cheerios but never came into the store so i could not try it but would like to

  22. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the
    same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from
    that service? Kudos!
