Free General Mills Beach Towel

Free Beach TowelI found this really cool promo from General Mills where select boxes of cereals will allow you to get a free beach towel. When grocery shopping, look carefully for the specially marked boxes as they contain a PIN code that you need to enter online to receive your freebie. No shipping fees to be paid! And the limit is 10 free towels per household, which is a lot I think. There are 350,000 towels available during this promotion, so don’t forget to look closely for the special cereal boxes.

Here is the complete list of participating cereals brands: Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Banana-Nut Cheerios, Cheerios, Chocolate Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fibre 1 Raisin Bran Clusters, Fibre 1 Honey Clusters, Fibre 1 Original, Fibre 1 Shredded Wheat Brown Sugar, French Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Nesquik, Oatmeal Crisp Almond, Oatmeal Crisp Maple, Oatmeal Crisp Triple Berry, Oatmeal Crisp Raisin, Oatmeal Crisp Vanilla Almond and Reese Peanut Butter Puffs.

The towels look pretty funky I think. I would like to get one of these towels and to use it during my holidays at the beach this summer. If you already have enough towels you can always choose to donate yours to the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation instead. I’m guessing they are going to use it during the summer camps for kids. Have a look at the following site for more information, note that it wasn’t working when I wrote this post as it was probably too busy.

    Very disappointed…same as others, tried for over a week at various times of day and night and could not log onto the website due to “technical difficulties”. Makes me wonder if the deal was that real…..or just a scam to get me to pick up four boxes (one towel for each kid)…..

      It’s so sad that so many of you weren’t able to get the free towel. I just got mine yesterday and you shouldn’t be too disappointed for not getting it as we can see through the towel ;) Certainly not the best quality I’ve seen.

    I don’t think there was anything wrong with this promotion. They just ran out of towels really quick that’s all. It was a super popular promotion.

    Cute, I type my comment and it comes back you already said that!! What a scam!!

    • Stephen says:

      It does that when you have already submitted a comment, however all comments are sent for approval first, to make sure there is no spam or swearing etc

  4. Tisha Letroy says:

    On the inside of the box it said “while supplies last or until October 30,2011.

    I would wonder who does purchasing? and if he converses with anyone in sales to get the numbers needed to have a somewhat accurate count on FREE towels!!

    Hello, how often these days do we get a FREE offer like this??? It used to happen alot when I was younger, but no longer. Too bad the forcast was soo off!

  5. Gail says:

    What is happening with your web site? It is impossible to get there to enter the code for the “free towel”. By the time anyone is actually able to get there the promotion will be over.

    • Anne says:

      Hi Gail,
      the last time I checked the website was working using our link, I ordered mine using this link. But unfortunately it looks like the promotion just ended. This could explain why the site wasn’t working for the past few days,

  6. Hello

    What is happening with the free towel website? I have tried all day to enter my code!!!! It say’s try again later??????

      Hi Nancy,
      I don’t know what’s going on, it might simply be too busy at the moment. It might be a good idea to contact their customers service for more info.
