Went food-shopping with the bf, and he realized that this was a decent deal:

{Step 1.} Shaw's has selected General Mills cereals on sale this week, 2 for $3, until July 13.

Cheerios, 15 oz.
Honey Nut Cheerios, 14 oz.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, 14 oz.
French Toast Crunch, 13.6 oz.
Lucky Charms
Kix, 9 oz.
maybe some others I don't remember

online circular

{Step 2.} Cruise the cereal aisle for manufacturer's coupons that are $0.75 off when you buy 2 boxes. Look in those automatic red coupon dispensers attached to the shelves. (I found two different coupons: "Save 75c when you buy any two Cheerios cereals" and "Save 75c when you buy any two General Mills cereals listed [long list that seems to include all the varieties Shaw's has on sale]".)

{Step 3.} Shaw's doubles manufacturer's coupons up to $0.99, automatically at the checkout.

Here's the math (it's easy):
$3.00 - (2 * $0.75) = $1.50 for 2 boxes

Caveat:
Maybe a slight YMMV since (1) I can't know whether all Shaw's have the same coupons in the cereal aisle, although I would guess they do, and (2) although the coupons say "not subject to doubling", the computer doubled the coupons as soon as the cashier scanned them in.

Chances are, if you have to look it up, then it isn't in your area when it comes to supermarkets (I mean, unless you just moved to a new state or something).

Shaw's Supermarkets are located in Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

I saw the same "SmartSource" coupons at my local shoprite, but they didn't double because they start with a 9 and not a 5 (or maybe the other way around)

In my experience, in-store coupons NEVER double... so just 75 cents off.

Shaw's says right on their circular that they double manufacturer's coupons.

Store coupons are different from manufacturer's coupons.

Excellent. Worked perfect for me. Wasn't sure if I was going to see the little red coupon dispenser, but it was there (Exeter, NH store). Wasn't sure if the $0.75 coupon was going to double, but lo and behold, it did! 2 boxes of GM cereal for $1.50. Thank you and great find!

A coupon printed out at the register for $1.50 off 3 boxes of General Mills but not subject to doubling, so it's not as nice as the doubled $0.75 on 2 boxes, but if you can only use the original deal once, you can use this coupon to pick up 3 more for $3.00.

Any idea if I can repeat the original deal again using the same Shaw's card? If so, I'll try to stack the coupons (not sure if it'll work) and get 3 more boxes for $1.50.

Glad to hear it worked for you!

I think the Shaw's sale is limit 6 boxes of the cereal.

I myself bought 4 at once, had no problem.

You can also print $1/2 on Boodle.com, if you can't find "blinkies" in the store. Shaw's is owned by Albertson's, so they may have the same sale.

Worked great for me. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0> Coupons doubled without a problem, much to my surprise. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

got many boxes of cheerios, lucky charms, cinnamon toast crunch, french toast crunch, honey nut cheerios, berry lucky charms, chocolate lucky charms and more, all 6 at a time. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif" border=0>

Now someone needs to find a milk deal <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border=0>

my kids thank you OP !! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

Thank you OP....got Cheerios with double $.75/2 coupon. Saved lots of $$.
