Background & Objective 

With over 3 million in sales (as of December 2017), Kellogg’s® is one of the most popular food manufacturing companies in the world, known worldwide for its cereals, snack bars, and brands such as: Pringles, Cheez-It, Eggo, etc. 

In working with 3 tier logic, Kellogg’s® objective was to use the “Gas for Cash” promotion to create a sales lift for its cereal products and incentivize consumers to make repeat purchases. 

Key Deliverables

  • Drive sales lift
  • Drive purchase frequency


3 tier logic used PLATFORM³ to create a microsite for the “Gas for Cash” promotion, which hosts various PLATFORM³ modules including Contests & Promotions, Purchase Receipt Validation, and Data Capture & Analytics.

Under the promotion, consumers purchase (2) two packs of specially marked Kellogg’s® cereal in a single transaction at any retailer in Canada to win a reward. 

Consumers can register on the microsite before or after making a qualifying purchase; after making a purchase, the consumer is required to take a picture of the purchase receipt and upload it on the microsite. If consumers register before making a qualifying purchase, they can easily log on to the microsite at a future time after they purchase the participating products.

Upon receipt validation, the consumers are rewarded with a $5 gas prepaid card. Consumers are also given the option to participate up to (5) five times and receive (5) five $5 gas prepaid cards, thereby driving repeat purchase and creating a sales lift for Kellogg’s®.

3 tier logic leveraged PLATFORM³’s Purchase Receipt Validation module to provide our client with a way to engage consumers on their mobile device, and the Data Capture & Analytics module to help our clients gain shopper knowledge from receipt uploads, giving them quick and clear insights into how their customers shop.
