Kroger’s in Texas and Lousianna will be doubling coupons $1 or less this Saturday (tommorrow only).  If you are wanting to participate, go early and be prepped with all the $1 or .75/1 coupons you can find.  Print coupons here and here.

Many are reporting the Kroger’s in Tennessee are tripling to match Harris Teeter’s triples.  Check with your local store to see if they are.  You can use the triples list for HT to help you find deals.  (Many also are saying that Kroger’s prices are better).

And in case you missed it Kroger’s everywhere will start a Mega event with the start of your next ad.  I will have the Kroger list up tomorrow afternoon!

    • Lyndsey

      The Kroger at the corner of 70/ Old Hickory in Nashville, TN is tripling coupons $.99 and under.

    • Donna

      Newbie here…what is a Mega event?

    • Colleen

      Nippers Corner is too- and they were out of NOTHING yesterday when I went!

    • Jenn

      Donna- Jenny cannot disclose any information about the Mega Event until tomorrow :( She did say to print out as many General Mills coupons as you can, so I assume that has something to do with the MEGA event.

    • Jenn

      I am so excited about the upcoming sale at Kroger!! The closest Kroger to us is 1 1/2 hours away, but we are going to TN, and there’s a Kroger about a mile from our cabin!!!!!

    • Liz

      Do u know how long the Kroger on 70/Old Hickory is tripling?

    • Lindsey

      do they double e-coupons too?

    • Colleen

      Yes, Kroger doubles the ecoupons unless they say Do not double or triple.

    • Kim

      Any word on Ohio Krogers? We seem to get the same deals (i.e. Kelloggs) – but on different days

    • I have a huge list of matchups for the Texas doubles. Lots of freebies!!!

    • Amy B.

      Colleen/Lindsey – ecoupons are not the same as internet printables. The ecoupons are loaded onto your kroger card and they DO NOT double. Internet printables will, however.

    • My Kroger doesn’t double ecoupons. They do double all the printable and regular coupons though.

    • How do you know if your Kroger is tripling coupons? I’m worried that my Kroger will look at me like I’m crazy if I ask that!

    • Lyndsey

      Liz- I don’t know how long they will be triple. Harris Teeter’s ends Tuesday so I would assume they will at least do it until then. I would call to ask, but they refuse to give any information over the phone.

    • Liz

      Thanks Lyndsey! I can’t believe they won’t give info out over the phone!! That must want it to be top secret…SHHHHHHHHHHHH. ;)

    • kelli

      I wish I lived in TN!!

    • Jan

      I live in Nashville and as far as I am aware ONLY the Krogers closest to Harris Teeter stores are matching the triple coupons. I actually live between 2 stores and only one of them is tripling. Most of the Nashville stores are not so call ahead if you want to be sure.

    • Stacy K

      Man! They need to add GA to the list!

    • MelRae

      I was just at the Belle Meade Kroger (on Harding, near the new HT and Publix), and they are tripling through Tuesday! I got some seriously good deals there today. I got Tyson chicken strips (on sale for $2.99 minus a 55 cent triple), and Tyson fully cooked entrees (on sale for $4 minus 55 cent triple). Also, Digiorno flatbread melts ($2.99 minus a 75 cent triple), and Tonys pizza for one ($1.67 minus 50 cent triple). So often when I do triples, I don’t get much food. But I am sooo well stocked for non-food items, that I specifically focused on food.

    • Jennifer Williams

      When are they going to do some big thing in GEORGIA????

    • Sarah Nichols

      My store in Covington, GA said they were only doubling 50 cent and less like always, but that was over the phone.

    • KitB

      How do you find out if your Kroger is tripling? I live in Durham, NC.

    • Erin

      I agree! What about Georgia?

    • Amanda

      Does anyone know if the Kroger on Hwy 100 (TN), near Publix and Chaffin Barn, is doing the triple coupons?

    • Belle Meade, Brentwood, Franklin, Cool Springs and Nippers Corners are the participating triple stores. I went to Nippers and Brentwood today. Got lots of good deals!

      The triple sale is coinciding with the HT sale week, so through Tuesday- which is awesome b/c that means it runs through the MEGA event – and there are matching coupons and e-coupons!!! Could make for some AWESOME deals!

    • I went to the Kroger at 4560 Harding today. They are participating. I have some coupon matchups listed on my site. I saved 90%!!! http://www.keepingourcash.com

    • GRR

      I am NOT happy! I went to a TX Kroger today for the Super Doubles. For many years at this store, I have been buying BOGO plus-card sale items and using a manufacturer’s coupon on both BOGO items (one coupon on the ‘buy one’ item and a second coupon on the ‘get one free’ item). I have shopped on many different days/times (so it’s not like I’ve been going to the same cashier), and have NEVER had a cashier not do this. UNTIL TODAY!

      When the Uscan cashier came over to scan my coupons, she handed back one of them and said I couldn’t use a coupon on the free item. I protested and said they are store discounts and manufacturer discounts, which are allowed to be stacked and have done so with no problem for years. She said with an attitude “I’m not gonna argue with you” and told me to go to customer service. I gave my explanation again to the customer service woman, and she insisted the same thing, so I had to give up. She also claimed that all my different cashiers over all the previous years have been doing it wrong and never should have allowed that all along! >:-(

      I was going to call Kroger corporate to complain as soon as I got home, but their website says they’re only open M-F, so now I have to wait two days.

      The coupons were for different amounts off, only one of which was included in today’s Super Doubles, so I don’t think that today’s deal could’ve been related to my problem. Also, there would not have been any overage, so that wasn’t the problem either.

      I’d like to get feedback from some of the Southern Savers readers — Have you had this problem at your Kroger or not? And how is Walgreens on this?

    • Kim

      Soooooooooooo disappointed. At our Kroger in Ohio – no triples, no doubling to .99, and the Mega Deal (so far) doesn’t look that impressive here. The Kroger ad in today’s paper doesn’t show anything overly spectacular. I hope that there are non-advertised deals that make it worth you the fuss over pulling your post about.

      FYI – our Kroger also does not do 50% off if B1G1 and only purchase 1. Heading back to the store to return or pick up the free one.

      I’m moving south.

    • robin

      mega event? here in atlanta, the sale paper for today was really disappointing. $5 off when you buy 10 products.
      prices still aren’t competitive with publix b1g1, unless there are some serious coupon match ups that i’m missing.
      will wait for jenny’s word…..hopefully this gets better.

    • Dale

      Kroger has their new sale paper for tomorrow online and I am not picturing “mega event” either. This is why I love this site, because I need Jenny to lead the way!

    • Marci

      FYI those in the south of Nashville area, I called both Spring Hill stores, Franklin, & Cool Springs stores, and they all said they weren’t participating, anyone finding anything different?

    • Jean

      Please let us know if any stores in Franklin, Cool Springs, or Brentwood are participating and if they are which exact locations because I haven’t found any either! Thanks ladies!

    • Shay957

      GRR #27 I am in Tennessee and I have had this happen as well. I had a b1g1 for razors and a $ off and they wouldn’t let me use them both. I didn’t argue because the razors rang-up $2 less than they were marked. Just remember it is not worth fighting about, killem’ with

      kindness and then try to research the coupon pol.

    • pat greene

      I’m going to be at Vandy on Tuesday and I know there’s a HT down the street,but is there a Kroger in the area. If so, where, please?

    • Joy in Nashville

      Kroger in Brentwood on Franklin Rd is tripling up to .99 through Tuesday. God great deals in two trips already. Knorr sides .10, free Edge, Free Wishbone, and several more! Good Luck!

    • Joy in Nashville

      Should have read “Got great deals …”!

    • Shay957

      The Kroger on Franklin Pk in Nashville has triple coupons, the clerk said she thought it ended tomorrow.

    • Heather

      Hey I was looking at the mega event add online at Kroger.. It says buy 10 get $5.00 off, well I called and you get $5 off for every 10 items up to 30 so that means if you buy 30 items you get $15 off! I am waiting to see what jenny says but from what I see General Mills is really the golden ticket this week.

    • Colleen

      SORRY- re: doubling ecoupons- I was think internet PRINTABLES when I wrote that. ecoupons do not double.

    • Colleen

      Where do you find the ad for next week (tomorrow) on line? I went to the Kroger website and could only find this past weeks that ends in a few hours.

    • Amanda

      I had a great day shopping at Krogers!! Spent $43.20 for $129.09 worth of groceries:)!!!!

      FREE ITEMS: 6 deoderants, pizza, icing and 2 packs of pens- love it!

      Cheap items- here are a few
      4 bags of lipton’s rice for 40 cents
      .28 cents for 2 boxes of jello
      .39 cents for frosting
      .19 cents mustard
      .19 cents wax paper
      .35 cents for 2 bottles 7-up
      .54 cents for Bunny bread

    • Alecia

      I am new to this whole couponing world, but I am LOVING the money I save. I just have a few questions. At Kroger’s are they tripling any copouns up to 0.99 cents even if it is not food? Just needing to know before I head to Kroger’s after work.

    • Ugh! I am a newbie but went to Kroger in Spring Hill yesterday and NONE of my coupons got doubled! Not even 35 cent ones. I really need to pay attention. Could have gone to the one in Franklin and possibly gotten TRIPLED! I’m so upset with myself! Might swing by the one in Franklin (on Hwy 96) tonight and get some deals before tripling ends. I thought they ALWAYS doubled the small ones. Some of them were printables but some were not. Oh well, this is how I learn I guess. Thanks for the info—I’m loving this site!!

    • GRR

      Well, don’t know if anyone cares, but the result of my call to Krogers HQ is that they say their policy is indeed to only accept one coupon on BOGO-sale items, despite the fact that dozens of cashiers had thought otherwise for years.

    • Ang

      GRR,

      Thanks for the heads up on Kroger not accepting coupons for BOGO. Publix does so I will save my coupons for them. Sorry you had such a hassle with them.
