    I was at no frills and i bought a box of post banana nut crunch cereal for $0.97 on sale. And every box comes with a manufacturer's coupon for $1 off your next purchase of post selects cereal ("all sizes, all varieties"). Which means that every subsequent box you buy they have to give you 3 cents. Right?

    I don't know if you can use a coupon on a sale item, although it's been years since I was in the grocery industry.

    But it's the manufacturer's coupon.. meaning that the manufacturer reimburses the store $1 no matter what amount they sold it for

    Wrong. You're charged the tax on the original price, and THEN the coupon's value is deducted, leaving only the taxes that you have to pay for.

    there's no taxes on cereal

    seriously, this is a perfectly viable scheme for obtaining free cereal and bringing down the man all at the same time

    it is the perfect solution for those among you who could never quite harmonize your love of convenient breakfast foods with your hate for the soulless diabolical megacorporations that produce them

    lol.. get what you pay for?

    Cereal wise I stick with cornflakes, or cheerios... they both come in huge economy size boxes and only cost 4 bucks.. but they are classic and still taste good to me.
