Coupon Trip: Kroger


I had a couple of $5 OYNO coupons that were expiring.  So, I had to head to Kroger to pick up some pretty good deals.  

Before we get started:
[Kroger Coupon Policy]    [Kroger Free Friday Download Page]

My Kroger doubles coupons $.50 and under.  Not all Krogers do this.  So, be sure to check with yours.

If you are curious about where to find the coupons that I mention below, you can use a coupon database.  I usually use the one HERE, but there are a ton that will pop up if you search for one.

Notes:

*1*

Kroger usually reduces down the coupon value to the purchase price.  (In this case, it would be $.69 per coupon.)

I checked my receipt when I got home, and somehow I got super lucky and it took off the full $1.50 amount for each.  I was very surprised, because they always beep and then get reduced.  So, this ended up being a $1.86 money maker.  I wish I would have picked up 3 or 4 more free teas.  

*2*

Most Kroger E-coupons can only be used once.  Occasionally, they have ones like this that can be used up to 5 times in a single transaction.  (Just one transaction, though.  Once you use it, it's gone.)

Also, shredded cheese freezes great.  I usually wait until it's a buck or less, but we're running low.  So, I stocked up and chucked it in the freezer.

*3*

This was when you buy 2 or more included items on the paper towel or tissue deal.  You don't have to buy 2 of the exact same thing.  Just look for the tags.
