  1. It’s too bad that you are running a contest that is difficult to get on the website to enter. Is this some kind of joke? I really like your product but am frustrated and disappointed with your contest website. I was not able to enter my access code to even see if I am included at all. At this rate, you are safe with your prizes. No one will win.

  2. I have to admit I like the cereal but not the game. It is a lead you on tactic site to get you to register so you can send junk mail to us. Shame on you. Coca Cola ran a similar add but at least you could enter you number without going thru 3 pages of fill in information requirements. I also noticed that if I didn’t fill in box that says yes send me more info that it quickly showed sorry. I wonder if there is an actual program sequence that doesn’t allow non info seekers to win.

  3. THIS SURE IS A JOKE!BUT WE ALL KNOW WHY.ANYTHING THAT PHILIP MORRIS OWNS IS A “SMOKE”SCREEN.

  4. What kind of grand prize is a limo ride to work? I’d take the $5000 gas card any day. If you live within 10 miles of a limo company, then you HAVE to take the limo ride. What kind of weird logic is that?

  5. What a waste of my time. THere was NO place to insert code. Well POST, say hello to Kellogg. I can eat their breakfast foods as well your brand ‘X’. I could even eat eggs, toast, grits, hashbrowns, waffles, etc. This was nothing but a ‘come on’ for the ‘Sweepstakes Web-site” which is too bad. I had the winning code (P6R6K4R4T9), but I guess POST doesn’t want to award prizes. Then do NOT have a contest. One customer means very litle to a huge firm such as yours, but I do NOT have a good ‘taste’ in my mouth when I think of POST – – excuse me, Brand ‘X”.

  6. It looks like many people get trouble entering this sweepstakes.

    In fact, it seems that people are using the “Sign me Up” option instead of click on the big red “ENTER NOW” button…

    For those people who didn’t understand how to enter this sweepstakes :
    Click on the big red “ENTER NOW” button then, you’ll get to the entry form.

    Good luck

  7. wHY CAN’T AN INTELLIGENT PERSON LIKE ME FIND OUT WHERE TO ENTER MY CODE? PlEASE IMPROVE THIS WEBSITE.
    LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS, BUT AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS CONEST.

  8. My first time on this website I read all the comments and the direction it didn’t take long to find it at the top of the the page click on
    Enter Here: Honey Bunches of Oats “One Spoonful is all it Takes Instant Win Game
    all I did was enter my name, email and code sorry i was not a winner

  9. To me, this is a form of harrassment to buy your product with false advertisement. I could not find the page to entry my code. Is it really there?

  10. Hi Marilyn moore,

    Please use the “Enter here : Honey Bunches of Oats “One Spoonful is All it Takes Instant Win Game” at the top of this page and follow the instructions.

    If you are using the “www.onespoonful.com” link.
    Click on “Find Out More” big red button on the page.

  11. I just recently purchased several boxes of ‘Honey Bunches of Oats’ (with almonds) and after opening the first box I noticed that there was a Instant Win Game going on and inside the box was an access code to use on your website. Imagine my surprise when I went on your website and found that the ‘game’ was over and had been for some time. After looking at the bottom of the box, I found in very small letters the date 9/15/08. Hey, my boxes of Honey Bunches have an expiration date of 16May09PO2A. Maybe, you should take the date on the top of the box (Better When Used By) rather than printing a date that is way ahead of that one.

    I’m sure there are still boxes on the grocery shelves with 16May09P02A on them????? Respectfully, L. J. Swindell

    Thank you

  13. I have been trying for months to find where to input my winning code. I had to dig to find this site. I found the other site but could not find a way to put the code in. I bet alot of money was left in the account because no one could get their prise!!!

  14. On a positive note I did like the commercials on the site and the Honeygram that you could send to a friend!

  15. We love these bunches and have still not found the caramel flavor. The only problem besides eating them too fast and they are expensiveis………..there are not many large bunches only lots of tiny ones. The first box was great but since then the bunches are way too small.

  16. WHAT IS GOING ON? I BOUGHT A BOX OF YOUR CEREAL, AND THEN FOUND OUT THAT THE CONTEST ENDED. BUT……NOT THAT I COULD OF POSSIBLY CHECKED INTO ANY #’S. I COULD NOT GET ON ANYTHING THAT TOOK THE “WINNER” #’S
    WHY ARE YOU MESSING WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE ENOUGH STUFF TO DEAL WITH BESIDES YOUR GAMES YOU ARE PLAYING ON THAT SIDE.
    I WILL SWITCH TO NAMES THAT OFFER THE SAME CEREAL, BUT WITHOUT ALL THE B.S.

  17. I am as disappointed with your contest as many others. I just bought a box with an April 27, 2009 expiration date. When I tried to enter the contest all I got was a blank page when I clicked. Then I read the small print and found the contest ended 9/15/08! Send me my prize anyway! You can e-mail me and get my address. My code is R6G4M6W6W4. I’m certain you didn’t ever intend to award the available prizes.

  18. could not get your page to open for me to enter the sweepstakes, tried numerous times. I am not a very patient person.

  19. Surprisingly I am a dedicated consumer of your product, even though I pay more per box than I normally would do. Will consider now though whether I will continue to do that. Since apparently you only want so many applicants.

  20. how do you enter contest? Is is over? I just bought my ceral on April 10, 2009. Is this stale ceral? What’s the answer to this contest you cannot find out how to enter?

  21. I like the cereal, but I don’t like how you are handling your contest. It has left a bad impression.

  22. why you put the promotion to win a prizes cant i enter in this page because these is abailable and can display

  23. i enter my code to play and re-enter the play is a fraude the promotion is no legaly all people cant play i send my code if have a prize send to me f3y7t3m7j9

  24. its cool that you are having a contest but you shouldnt make it so hard to see if you have won. click and it leads you from page to page for you to fill out forms so that i will get more unwanted emails and spam! that isnt too cool of you guys to do it that way!!! I shouldnt have to fill out my info UNLESS i am a winner!! i wont try any more and i am sure that is what you want!! 🙁

  25. your promotion is negative because most of your participants already told you of our frustration in signing up for the prizes, but we can’t sign up. it’s amazing we did not have any problems in giving you our e-mail and address, but we can’t access your actual sweepstake sign up. the fact most of the participants already voiced their opinions and nothing has been done about it, makes me think you don’t really care about our opinions we bought the product, and you didn’t come through in your end.

  26. This is a Joke isn’t it!
    I also went to the website on the box and couldn’t find where to put my code.
    The funny thing is the I clicked on the red “enter here” at the top of this page and it comes up with this page can not be found!!!
    Not a good way to gain customer confidence.

  27. We are trying to get in our codes but every time we click on “honey bunches of oats one spoon full is all it takes” a new page opens but it doesn’t have any information, it is just blank.

    We eat this cereal 5 or 6 days a week, so we really looking forward to participate in this game. So please update your game website.

    Thank you.

    CQ

  28. Your cereal is great. Your contest is a JOKE. I will never bother ever again. I may not even bother with your cereal anymore.

  29. I AM CAN NOT OPEN THE AREA FOR THE SWEEPSTAKE ENTRY CODES!! Ist R4X7Y6R6G4 2nd R7M3M7X7Y9 3rd J6Y7R9K6J7

  30. I LOVE HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS – I ALWAYS PURCHASE POST SELECT CERALS TO MIX WITH MY HONEY BUNCHES OF POST SELECT CRANBERY – BLUEBERRY. WITH THE WAY I MIX IT HAS HELPED DROP MY CHOLESTERAL BACK DOWN TO A NORMAL RANGE, NOW I DON’T TAKE CRESTOR ANY LONGER ( I HADE BEEN ON FOR 5 YEARS )

  31. I have clicked on the ENTER NOW tab at like 1 min. intervals for the past 10 min. and NOTHING!!. What a freakin joke. Thanks for NOTHING!!

  32. I AM VERY DISSATIFIED WITH YOU ENTRY, IT IS SO MISLEADING .I FEEL IF YOU WANTED MORE BUSINESS YOU SHOULD SAID BUY MORE PRODUCTS. SHAME ON YOUR COMPANY.

  33. I love the product but is very dissatisfied with the game played. Honesty is very important for a company to survive. If it was no us….there would be no you.

  34. It’s a hoax. Your company can make buisiness in Puerto Rico, but the American citizens of the US territory can’t participate in the sweepstakes. I buy at least one box per week, but will not do so from now on. What I will do is inform as many people as I can about the discrimination practices towards the island.

  35. I like your product and bought a number of boxes on sale. Soooooooooo, I thot I would enter your contest. However, after getting to this point, it doesn’t tell how to check the “magic numbers!” Here’s the ones I have:
    T7M7J3M3M6, R4M7R7WJ9, R9TT4R6JJ4Y4, P3K4R9F3K9.

    I agree with others that this seems to be a rabbit trail that leads to no where!

  36. It is very sad that we lost our time with
    this false advertisment.
    You lie to your costumer and that is very bad
    for the future of the company.
    The product is good but the directive of the
    company very bad.
    I am sorry for you

  37. I went to the website and pressed Enter Here.
    When I tried to enter, the web page would NOT open.
    I tried 3 different times and the same thing happened.
    I got the message “THIS WEB PAGE CANNOT BE FOUND.”
    So I pressed the “Comments” and am sending you this message.

    I am discouraged. I am disappointed in Post, Maxwell House and Honey Bunches. I expect professionalism and excellence.

    When I pressed Win a Trip or Win $$, the pages which appear NOT to be connected directly to POST come up immediately.

    Please enter my joyful morning surprise # and notify me if I win. The # on the spoon is X4R7C6J6J6

  38. Im trying to enter the one spoonful contest. What gives? is this just another scam? How can someone win instantly is you guys shut down the web site? Maybe I will just switch cereal!

    Why don’t you tend to business instead of messing with people!!

  39. I just purchased two boxes of Honey Bunches of Oakts cereal with almonds and the contest ended March 09… boo hoo!! Did not get an opportunity to enter. Please send me some coupons so that I will not be so disapointed. Thank you.

  40. Your ceral starts my day and my new life style. I have lost 12 pounds in a month and swear by your product. It fills me up with a cup of milk. I would love to get some free products if possible as I just retired.

  41. Living in Hawaii offers many opportunities to get products that are out of date for the contest that you offer on the specially marked packages…MAYBE A BOYCOTT IS IN ORDER FOR ALL OF KRAFT PRODUCTS…WITH AS MUCH ALOHA AS YOU GIVE

  42. This Instant Win Game is a sham and POST should be prosicuted for it. I have eaten two boxes of HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS CEREAL per week for it seems like years now. I have another months supply on the shelf and when they are gone so are anymore purchases of ANY POST PRODUCTS. I tried your JUST BUNCHES and they are for the pits. By the way when I tried to enter your game all I can get is that this website can not be accessed. SAY GOOD BY TO A DISGURNTLED EX-CUSTOMER.

  43. your contest is just a come on to use your stuf, entered your contest no. 3 times an you still say the code are wrong. bull sugar. now we won,t use your product any more, but why should you care. in your ear. A. P. Capo

  44. I AM A DIABETIC AN HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS CEREAL IS GREAT FOR A MORNING OR EVENING MEAL. THE CEREAL DOES SEND MY SUGAR LEVELS TO HIGH. THANKS HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS.

  45. Tried to enter my two codes…get error…@#**. No where to complain. What a rip off that you have to buy the cereal and then can’t enter.

  46. NOT ONLY IS IT HARD TO GET ONTO THE WEBSITE TO ENTER,
    THEY REQUIRE TWO CODES! ONE FROM HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS & ONE FROM CODE FROM JUST BUNCHES! WHAT A CROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. I put in the code inside of the box TWICE and said it was an invalid code!

    What’s up with this?

  48. What a bunch of CRAP! I entered the codes and got invalid codes? What kind of farse is this? Is this a joke or what!!!!

  49. You do not play fair. I enterered code from my box, than you ask for code from another type of ceral. It did not say that on the box I got at the store. In other words to play I have to buy 2 different cerals.
    I love your ceral but not the sneaky way you play.
    I will continue to buy, but come on folks play fair.

  50. I really enjoy both Honey Bunches of Oats and Just Bunches. I like the just bunches for a snack,on yogurt, on top of honey bunches,raisin bran,and all bran. My wife uses it to make some great oatmeal cookies. Our grandchildren like it too.

  51. I just registered for a bunch of spam and all I got was error messages when I tried entering my codes….what a waste!

  52. i cannot make out the exact numbers on my box of cereal. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING I CAN THINK OF AND IT STILL SAYS WRONG CODE.

  53. your play to win is abunch of hog wash. You can put the first

    code in and then try the second one. Then it pops up you have

    something wrong, try again but the same thing happens again.

    To make a long story short, its just a rip off.

  54. I think that this is not fare because think about the children how really needs it like Ester because her mom was in the news paper and It ws about the Imagration people and how they forst my wife and now my chiled Ester is sad for her mom being gone and Ester Is only11years old

  55. I thik it takes alot of work but the children needing a vacation because ofther mom is in mexico thousause miles away from here daa……….

  56. Why do you we need two codes? I Don’t buy “Just Bunches”. I don’t like the “Just Bunches” I only like the “Honey Bunches of Oats” I don’t buy it for the Bunches.

  57. I BELIVE THIS A SCAM THAT BERNARD MATOFF COULDN’T HAVE DESIGNED ANY BETTER!

    POST CERALS SHOULD BE ASHAMED ASKING FOR 2 CODES FROM 2 DIFFERENT BOXES OF THEIR PRODUCT. IF THEIR BUSINESS IS THAT BAD THEN MAYBE THEY SHOULD KEEP THE 10K. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A COPY OF YOUR WINNERS LIST SENT TO ME, AND BY THE WAY YOUR CUT OFF DATE WINDOW FOR THIS CONTEST IS SHORT IN MY OPINION,

  58. I tried to enter today, but the game is already over. Rules say it ends tonight at 11:59pm, and it is only 11 am. I feel duped that I bought a second box of cereal for this.

  59. I tried to enter my “winning” numbers about 6 times or more. The printing was very hard to read on the cereal boxes. This contest was a huge bother! I like the cereal but entering contests like this are not fun when you can’t read the numbers on the box.
    K9O3Y7W4J4
    T4W9P6W9Y4 — Just bunches.

    Don’t know why the program would not take these numbers….maybe they were the winning ones!

  60. At 6;45 pm I tried to enter codes from my boxes of just bunches and honey bunches of oats. According to rules contest was to stay open until 11:59 pm et that would be 10:59 central where I live. What a joke. When I tried to enter web site said contest was over. Today is June 30 time is now 7:05 pm central. Yes to all it was a joke. My family loves honey bunches of oats. Now when I shop, don’t know if I will ever buy post.

  61. How can your contest end when the current time is 8:25 P.M. and your rules state it ends at 11;30 P.M. ET?? This must be some kind of joke.

  62. IT IS A PRETTY BAD CONTEST THAT ENDS ON JUNE 30 AND ON JUNE 30 IT STATES THAT CONTEST HAS ENDED..WHAT KIND OF DEAL IS THIS!!!

  63. You’re contest doesn’t allow you to enter the code and the page doesn’t load properly. Thanks for wasting my time. I’ll be choosing other fattening products for my breakfast from now on. Say hellow back bacon w/extra grizzle!! You guys suck!

  64. I tried to enter code number from my box of cereal and kept getting message that it was invalid. I entered it 5 times with same results. This is another scam I feel.

  65. tried to enter your contest but it says game had ended, box says its open till 10/7/09. your cereal is great, I have been hooked for years. btw my number is W7K7P6F7T3

  66. I love this cereal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here is my code f714jl6t3f7.

  67. What a farce! Terrible site, forced advertising, and no easy way to enter the code I received in my cereal box. Should have known better but I thought Post would be a more reputable, legitimate company.

  68. I tryed to enter the Party In Paradise contest and said it was over, however from a box of recently purchased Honey Bunches of Oats cereal the rules say the contest runs from June 8, 2009 through October 7, 2009. What is the matter with this picture, you advertise one thing and do not honor your own set of rules.

  69. I cant belive what happend you guys better fix this right now im very angry at your website.I went on your site and your site is so bad.I want my prize right now. I’m 7 years old and just want to win fair.
    Thanks,
    Tanesia

  70. this was one of the most missleading schems to get information from customers i have ever seen from a major consumer product.regretfully, I have to say i am a long time former consumer,do not bother to put me on your mailing list.

  71. Very disappointed in your sweepstakes. OneSpoonful.com. Our cereal box listed opening and closing dates as beginning at 12:01 am on 6/08/2009 and closing at11:59 pm Eastern time on
    10/07/2009.

    WI tried to enter my code, I was informed that the sweepstakes had ended on June 30, 2009.

    Disappointed enough to stop buying Honey Bunch of Oats.
    We were faithful customers for a very long times.

  72. this is my families favorate cereal. We cant afford all that my teenage boys eat. One box aday!!!!!! we would love love to win all the boxes we can!!!! Delicious nutritious and load of fun to eat. we love you and if lived where it is manufatured i would be working along side all you happy people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks. love, deb.

  73. I am irate that I took time to tear up the box, enter the site and then find out the game is over!! I just bought the cereal and plan never to buy Honey Bunches again after this fiasco!! Shame on POST

  74. i have eaten honey bunches of oats for years.after eating i don’t get hungry as often.during the summer i prefer it because in the winter i prefer oatmeal sometimes.keep on making those bunches.

  75. l love this cereal here is my code R309T9T7P3 on just the bunches i could not find any code but l have proof of purchase number 4300002639

  76. sounds to me u all are about fraud bcause my box reads on official rules that it starts on June.8,2009 at 12:01am(“ET”)through 11:59pm(“et”)October.7,2009 look at your calender post people its only August.13,2009!very disapointed with post you should make good with your customers.

  77. When I went online to enter the cereal box code, there is a message saying Contest has Ended. The box states, however; that contest runs between June 8 through October 7, 2009.

    Please advise why these two dates don’t correlate with your website.

  78. “My comment is awaiting moderation?!” I see I’m not the only one who thinks this is fraudulent advertising and no amount of ‘moderation’ will change that.

  79. Just another disgruntled former customer writing to complain about your contest and enter my code #X3P6Y3Y7MS. Along with all the other scams to bilk the public your cereal-promotion scheme is outstanding!

  80. Well since I couldn’t even find a place to enter my code number and after seeing all these coments I have to agree your contest STINKS
    Some one should take you to court and make you prove there realy is a contest
    my number is T7y4p4R9P4 think YOU can find the place to enter it and yes you do say it runs til Oct9,2009

  81. My day starts with it. In fact, I wake up early to have my Honey Bunches in breakfast otherwise I prefer to skip my morning meal if H.Bunches are finished at home. It happens when the supply of this product is too short.I m from India -Delhi and I specially go too far to buy post cereals for my breakfast.Unfortunately, from last 2 months I’m not having my healthy breakfast just because there is no supply of Honey Bunches in our city-Delhi.I’ll consider myself in Heaven if I will really get Honey Bunches everyday indeed in my all three meals of the Day!!!

  82. The bait and switch, how original.I just bought the box of cereal on aug. 12 2009, how stale is this crap.If there are that many boxes on the shelf, the odds are you didn’t give away a damn thing. Corporate American GREED no longer surprises
    the average American, now were just discusseded.

  83. I just bought the box of Honey Bunches of Oats with Peaches and the contest ended on June 30….??????? ….this if August 17 ….

    Maybe not so many people are buying your product?????

    SORRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. I like Honey bunches of Oats with Almonds a lot.
    I have been eating it since we came home from vacation from our relatives home where I first tasted it many years ago, 20± years ago. It taste good and I believe it is good for good health. Keep up the good work!

  85. I just purchased 2 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats on Aug 16th when I went on line today Aug 20th I find the the contest ended on June 30th no where does it give a contest expiration date on the box. Someone should remove all those boxes from the stores or at least put the contest expiration date on the box.

  86. What a rip off! I buy a box of your cereal on 8/19/09. I try to enter today. 8/20. Your site says that the contest is over but the instructions printed inside says the contest ends on 10/17/09. All of a sudden I have a terrible taste in my mouth from Post cereals.

  87. On the bottom of the cereal box, it states that contest will end on 10/07/09. However, your web site states the contest ends June 30, 2009.

    Please explain!

    Thank you.

  88. no where to enter code,also I went to 3 different stores and no o ne has your new pecan honey bunches of oats.

  89. I have a code, but I can NOT read it. I have entered it several times, several different ways and you say it is invalid. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

  90. I don’t think anybody wins because it says the contest is over., or else the ceral is old which was just bought. Donna

  91. I just purchased the boxes of cereal from Safeway and it’s sad that you would put your products out on shelves and mislead customers. How legit of a company are you?

  92. I can’t beleave only one bowl and a glas milk every morning,I loss ten pound this mounth and I feel realy-realy healthy.thakn’s honey bunches of oats.Delicius,Crispy and healthy.

  93. I just came to your site today for the first time because I read about the instant win game. I’m not impressed by a company which advertises currently for a game which has ended months ago. Obviously I got your address from my cereal box, which is now empty today and the new one will be opened tomorrow.

  94. Are you running a scam? I have tried numerous times but nothing happens when I type in OneSpoonful.com to try to win that 4 days, 3 nights in the Caribbean. Thanks for nothing. Thomas Dolan

  95. Shame on you Post.

    The box of cereal I purchased last week has a pull date of June 22 2010. I tried to enter the contest only to find that there is no access. What are you people thinking?

  96. same thing safeway just stocked the shelves with this promotion and contest is over.. No wonder they were buy 5 boxes @ $2.00 each.. I guess the economy is bad for Bunches of Oats too!

  97. You want people to enter code number provided inside the box of honey bunches of oats just bunches. Why is it that after Ienter the web site I couldnt see the area to enter my code to verify if I won anything? Anyway my code that I found in the box is 4C4P6K4T9K. I need to know if you are trying to use people to your advantage to buy your product or not. After all, the product has already advertize itself without adding something that will result in falseful add that can create civle law-suit of the company.

  98. Not only was the contest over before I opened the box. The cereal had just made it to the shelf. Which means it’s atleast a year old. Time to switch to a fresher brand !!!!!!!

  99. It appears that your game has expired on June 30,2009, however, inside your box of cereal it states that the contest starts on June 8,2009 and ends on October 7,2009.

    Your contest is a waste of time. If you have an excuse for the problems I would like to here what they are.

    Thanks

  100. Your contest is a joke, it will cost you customers. My Box has a sell by date of May 29 2010. Your website says the contest is over. My box says it ends October 7,2009. I would have thought Post Cereals was above “scamming the public” but I guess I was wrong. Your cereal was good but your business practices suck!!!!!!!!!!! After you get our dollar you forget about us. If your contest was over in June, how old was the cereal I ate? These statements are from a former customer!!!!!

  101. I just wrote a book about the General Motors Willow Run Plant after spending 30 years at this vacility, in the Security Deaprtment fighting the crime of an auto plant. The BOOK is Called BEEN THERE. If I had run my office like you run this contest I would not have been a security chief for very long.

    How do I find out if I won, as you contest is over before I bought the box? By the way, Love your cereal. y9m7x6f4p6

  102. I purchased the box on sep. 25, upc #0 43000 11275 5.
    I was not able to enter my acces code to see if I won instantly can you please do it for me, my access code is
    j4f9j7y9k3,
    I love post is the only cereal I eat.
    thank you

  103. Se[t. 28, 2009 Went online to enter contest that your box
    stated was to run from June 8, 2009 to Oct. 7, 2009….

    Only to find that the contest was over on June 30, 2009.

    Did too many people enter or you just decided to end the
    contest 3 months early?

  104. This HBO “Party in Paradise” contest is supposed to end next week, but the website says the contest is over. Whassup! Post, you just wasted 30 minutes of my life.

  105. Honey Bunches Good!!! But with so many complaints and with my dissapointment when trying to use your outdated web site well you need to know ;;;;; lAST purchase of your product or any other product that I know puts a single penny in your company.
    Be Honest if you want me as a consumer!!!!!

  106. I looked on box and it did say October 7, 2009 for end of game. Honey Bunches of Oats with strawberries is great. I don’t really enjoy breakfast but with this cereal it is a great
    way to start my day.

  110. Just like all the other companys with their give aways.You must read the fine print,before you buy because they have all the rules in their favor for you not to win.Bought a box of Almond HoneyBunch of Oats with a code date of 12 Mar 10.Four of them to be exact.Not realizing the end of the game was 10 7 09. I bought these at K-Mart in Fall River, Ma. in Sept.09.
    Just finished the first box and discovered by going on-line that the game is over.From a delicous tasteing cereal,it some how has just got very dis-tasteing.Could you explain?

  111. porfavor explicame con detalles y en espanol como es el concurso porque nunca encontre donde escribir el codigo que viene en la caja de el cereal soy una fiel consumidora de Honey Bunches OF OATS y me encanta su sabor me encantaria ganarme 10 000 dolares

  112. wHere e r very disappionted. The advertisement on the box is fake. Good job. Dude. Here’s my code; w9m7k9r4w7

  113. I spent nearly an hour to get to this point. You can, of course, compensate me in some manner if you want to restore my good will. My code is P4C6K9Y9Y9.

    It is very sad that we lost our time with
    this false advertisment.
    You lie to your costumer and that is very bad
    for the future of the company.
    The product is good most of the time, but the directive of the company very bad. Besides your company must have a lot of out of date cereal in the stores we shop at, because I just opened two boxes this morning, one strawberry and one peach.
    I am sorry for your company as well as the staff, and because of this I well be going back to my old brand. However I am going to list all of the numbers from inside the boxes; r3t7j3c9y9-k3m6r4m6y9-c9f4r6m903-r0k3m9y3c4-p9t3j6p3j7-.And there was more but my wife trashed the boxes because their was no chance of winning she told me, guess she was right after all.————–Joseph

  115. My cereal was outdated I want my refund I bought it in safeway in Arizona
    my winning code is K3t4tf6t9

  116. I bought my 3 boxes of JustBunches! on 11/2/09. They have an expiration date of Jun 11, 2010. The Party in Paradise game expired on 10/7/09. Why have an expired game on the product?

  117. I have just finish this box of Honey Bunches of Oats and the inside of the box shows this instant winner code of as follows: C4G9YG4K7 to enter my spoon’s access code and it says I WON.

  118. Read those comments. This is crappy. The cereal is delightful. You have no intention of anyone actually winning. Nasty . Might make me change back to ham and eggs.

  119. been playing your sweepstakes games foa years only to find out that your game expired long ago/.no one wins ………. jf. f7w0k3c4c3

  120. i love the cerial vey very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very much

  121. Starting 2010 with Honey Bunches of Oats, on my daily breakfast menu. This Senior, Senior,Senior Citizen wants to know where I may enter my # to win the Sweepstake?

  122. Wow…. What else is to be said? Very disappointing all the way around. Sad that something that should be positive and improve your image does the exact opposite…. Got to give you guys credit for “allowing” customers to vent. People don’t enjoy wasting their valuable time searching a website looking for a place to enter a long small print number. Stongly suggest that you guys take notes! Maybe issue an apology! ps: I do love your cereal.

  123. I love your products. I hate the game it’s only a miss leading way to clog your email with unsolicited offer.

  124. What have you done with all the CARMEL JUST BUNCHES??????

    The Honey Roasted do not hold a candle to the Carmel.

    PLEASE can I have them back???????

  125. This contest is a complete disappointment, a joke and a public relations nightmare! Might to a good time to take the person or people responsible for this fiasco and throw them under the bus! A public apology is necessary!

  126. what a nitemare cant you just let us enter and go on what a joke this was i dont like all the junk that you put with this

  127. I didn’t even enter your contest because of all of your negative feedback, nor leave a correct name or email.

  128. I can’t believe that you still have a contest box on the shelves at Wallgreens. I purchased this box in Feb/2010 and the contest closes October 7 2009. Am I to believe that contest boxes are used after the contest is closed so you can save money on the packaging. My wife buys cereal all the time to play the contests . If we do not get 3 free boxes of your product we will never buy it again. This is how many I bought for her.

  129. What a pain in the neck. My wife ask me to go on line and enter this instant win number,I could hardly find out wher I need to go to enter this number. Now I read that this contest is closed and we just purchased this late february 2010. What a waste of my time.

  130. WE LOVE YOUR POST STRAWBERRY HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS. WE GO THROUGH SEVERAL BOXES OF IT A WEEK. WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE COUPONS. CAROLYN

  131. Just wanted to make a suggestion———-I love your Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal but really love the “Just Bunches” My suggestion-Could you make more of the bunches stick together better. I eat them right out of the box as a snack and all the bunches are on the top. Till you get to the middle and bottom of the box the bunches are really small. No bunches at all. Would love to buy just bunches but not to worry I shall keep eating the bunches no matter how small they get. thanks

  132. Tried repeatedly and could never find a way to enter my code on line. “See if you have won instantly” is not available.

    I am disappointed in you.

  133. this was purchased in august 2010 and i like the product but the contest is over for nearly a year — this is rediculous — how can you do this — i doubt that i will buy this again
