Kelloggs Fitband with a purchase of any 3 promotional packs.

59
Found 7th May 2016
Actually you can buy any three promotional packs of kelloggs which says "free fitband" the price may vary according to what pack you buy.

I bought special k cereal bars £1 each so three packs for £3 only from sainsbury on offer and then pay £3 postage. There were other special k products on offer too but this was the cheapest.

Then just go on the url and pay for postage and wait for it to arrive which may take upto 3 week or more as i have experienced they send out the product late!

​What are the main features of my fitband?

The main features of the fitband are:
Step counter
Time mode
Distance mode

soon basically a pedometer.

The question you should be asking is... Does the fitband actually work?

Buys food packed with sugar to get wristband to be healthy.

Seems legit.

Its just an offer if you dont want to buy it then just dont!

Seems to be pretty good for the price, seems a little better than a basic step counter, pretty much all a fitbit does really.

The simple answer is no you won't get fit from a fitband

How are they 'packed with sugar' though? I mean, you don't ever say that when someone has cereal with milk, right? But why not? Semi skimmed milk has around 9.5g sugar per 200ml, so before you've even added cereal to breakfast you're getting more sugar than these cereal bars.

The stigma around these is hilarious to be honest, mainly due to the ridiculous Daily Mail articles, etc. I personally think they are absolutely fine as long as you don't sit on your **** all day expecting to lose weight! Low in salt, low in saturates, low in calories, but a pretty good source of vitamins, fibre and slow burning energy if you buy ones with nuts/seeds/wholemeal cereal etc. Sure there's a few bad breakfast/cereal bars - worryingly the ones aimed at kids, but then you should always read nutritional info, etc.

I'm really quite intrigued on how the HUKD Anti-Sugar Division Food Police survive without sugar. I'm amazed they have the energy to even browse this site tbh!

I think the thread title should reflect the £3 p&p because this is not really free

I think you guys need to so some research instead of shamelessly accusing people.
Sugars in milk come from lactose, which is a natural sugar produced by milk and enzymes.
This is different to added simple sugars present in cereal.
Honey has a high sugar content and is not as good a substitute as sugars present in fruit for example, from fructose. Fructose in fruit won't spike your blood sugar due to the high fibre content in fruit.

Not all sugars are equal.

Heat. Worth the money to track how many steps are done in a day and a good motivator to increase physical activity. See how you get on with this device before you decide to upgrade to something like a Fitbit or Jawbone.

I know that. But members here seem to have such a stigma toward sugar in general. At the end of the day these are low calorie bars and they actually don't have much sugar in comparison to things people consume daily without thinking twice about. I mean, the 6.5g in Special K Red Berry Cereal Bars barely amounts to 1.5 teaspoons of sugar ffs.

At under 100 calories and about 6.5g of sugar they are actually pretty good for people wanting to diet while doing light daily exercise to lose weight. The calories from this would be burned off after a 1-mile 20 minute walk...

Has anyone actually managed to fully process the codes on Kelloggs site?
Have tried over 5 times and at the point of 'place order' the site goes 'oops something went wrong'.

Can anyone please tell me if the packets need to have the offer on the cover to be eligible, or will any packets do towarss the fitband offer?

Many thanks.

Agreed, it does annoy me when something is labelled as free then you have to pay money to get it meaning it's not actually free

Ah, the moral superiority of the Sun reader strike again



They have managed to type and string together coherent sentences, so can't be a sun reader.

But anyway, yeah as far as cereal bars go these don't seem that bad for sugar, mind you they are pretty small and you'll feel like you've not eaten anything once you finish, but still...

Thanks OP , have been thinking about getting something like this, am taking part in the GCC ( Global Corporate Challenge ) and am thinking that over the course of the 100 days I'm likely to lose the pedometer they give you, so this would be a handy backup if I can get it in time.

​Low calorie is usually considered 5 G of sugar per 100g. I kinda hate the whole bar thing we have nowadays. You'd think eat natural and all those things are low in sugar, but for the same amount of calories you could have a whole fruit. And that'd have more fibre and vitamins, so not really a great option I think.
If I want a chocolate bar I'd rather keep it as a treat and have a real chocolate bar rather than a small substitute. They never seem as satisfying lol

Not really about the sugar, the carbohydrate content/GI index is pretty naff with most kelloggs cereal.

HOWEVER; cereal bars are made for people who don't have time for cereal in the morning. Having a cereal bar is far better than not having anything at all as your metabolism won't start burning and neither will your brain

It's well understood IF you read your opening post. Its not hard to mention it in the title though and make it clear from the start

The fact is it's not "free" and it's not "£6"

That happened to me the first time but then it went through. Saying that though it didn't work on my phone so I then tried my tablet so not sure if that made a difference.
