I have recieved a $30 Giftcard courtesy of General Mills, PepsiCo and MyBlogSpark. I am in the process of planning my event and you would be surprised at what you can get for $30.

I thought it might be fun to see if I could eat for the day with the sale items.

This is just an example of the items that you can get for under $30 during the Mega Deal Event. It seems that the participating items vary by region (or perhaps they just aren't all advertised?) but you can check out Coupon Mommie for a lot of coupon match-ups and Internet printable coupons for the Mega Deal Items. In addition, check at your store for the double yellow tags to confirm what items are included in the Mega Deal event.

Now that I have shown you what you can get for under $30, how would you like a chance to win your own $30 gift card courtesy of PepsiCo, General Mills and MyBlogSpark? They were kind enough to provide me the opportunity to giveaway one $30 Kroger family giftcard to one lucky reader.

In order that you can get it in time to take advantage of the Mega Event, the contest will remain open until Thursday 8/20 at 7 pm. The winner will have 18 hours to reply to an e-mail and provide contact information. If they do not respond, a new winner will be drawn at that time.
