I finally got to a Kroger this morning in La Grange, (what a sweet store you guys have). They are marking most Christmas items way down – like we got free Christmas balloons and the lady in front of us got free poinsettias. I have no doubt that this will be chain wide but hurry if you want the free deals! They are also marking Christmas candy down with these items so get stocked up now for cheap valentines day candy if you can! (There’s always another holiday coming).

All of the Mega Event deals will also be added to the Kroger Weekly Ad list.

    • Ngillis827

      I'm sooooo excited that I got a Pillow Pet for only $9.99 at Kroger !! :)

      • Tiffany

        Can you tell us how?

        • Ngillis827

          They were in the Christmas section (with the candy & gift wrap) and marked down to half off !!

        • AshleyQ

          @ Ngillis827 – too funny, I know how you feel… I got really excited to get one for $7.41 at Kohls a few weeks ago for my nephew. They had them marked down to $20, I had a $10 off $20 or more and then was able to stack a 30% off Q with it. My mother was amazed!!!

    • Denise

      Where's LaGrange? Is that in S Carolina?

      • Ashley

        lagrange is in GA…south west of atlanta

        • Mindy

          I'm here! I was in Publix last night though, not Kroger :(

    • DW in GA

      Can someone tell me or direct me to a place that will show the best deals/buy now prices for baby stuff (diapers/food). I want to help my sister in law start couponing and stockpiling in anticipation of her baby that is due in March. But it has been a LONG time since I priced that stuff!

      • Most of those items are included in the big Buy Price list here:

        http://www.southernsavers.com/…/

      • Fsavage24

        Well I have two babies in diapers and have been very blessed to diaper both for free and also made it a moneymaker. Here's how…Rite Aid their travel size Tugaboo for $.99 and inside of each is a coupon for $1.00 so if you pay the initial cost of some you can use the coupons to buy more. I have been doing this since June and have enough for both kids and also sold some because they outgrew some. I also have some Huggies and Pampers from various deals with Rite Aid and their up rewards. Now onto wipes…right now the Kandoo wipes are $3.00 for 2 at Kroger and there is a manu coupon for $1 making them $.50 each. You can order them on coupon dede I think…Now these coupons (rite aid tugaboos and also kandoo wipes) expire 12/31. I have stockpiled enough diapers, wipes, j&j, meds, toothbrushes, toothpastes for my kids for the next two years. I have already working on my pullups (got 15 packs so far). Over the past 7 months or so I have been able to get about 600+ packs (each pack has 2 diapers on each) for about $18.00 (all tax). I lost count after 600 packs. I live in an area that 3 cities are together and Rite Aid is everywhere so I would go and see if they have any and the managers at some stores would re-order them since I was buying them up. I hope this helps!

        • Kb

          so you only purchase the travel size? how many come in a travel pack?

      • angel

        Right now at diapers.com you can get some awesome deals!!

    • Valerie

      Heads up on the Wonka Exceptionals 3.5 oz bars: there are ecoupons on Kroger's website that can be used on them even though they *say* they're for the boxes! ?? I don't know why but it automatically took off $3 when I bought 2 bars ($2 each). :) So-$.50 each! Nice.

    • ahhh!! I was there today and probably passed you!!! lol Going back tomorrow for some more deals :)

    • Lkmc88

      Anybody know what zip the Martha White coupon is under? I can't seem to find it!

      • Lkmc88

        Nevermind! I found it on Coupons.com under zip 90210Thanks!

        • Tessa

          How does 90210 zip on coupons.com work? Thanks!

    • Fsavage24

      I can't find that Mahatma rice on sale for $1. I didn't see it in the ad, did anyone buy them? Were the shelves marked?

      • Mel

        There were hardly any signs for anything in my store. All I could find was the 32 oz. bag. Don't even know if my little Kroger carries the 16 oz. size. Often times we don't carry things the larger stores do.

      • Lawsonaba

        It was marked in my store. Three bags free!

    • Mel

      So I had a horrible time trying to make this P&G deal work last night. There were almost NO signs in my store. I know it said the 30 ct. Charmin was on sale in Jenny's match-ups, but nothing about it in the store. Also the Tide stain release isn't advertised in my paper and there were no signs in the store. I didn't want to count on something and not have it work and then mess up the rest of my deal. Anybody confirm that it's working? I was really in need of TP and my store still stacks mfg. coupons with e-coupons, so I wanted to take advantage of that. In the end, I ended up buying 5 items by mistake. Grrr… Hate when that happens.

      • Sherryb

        I got the $3 ecoupon on the 5.99 size of charmin yesterday. I also got a 1.50ecoupon on the tide stain release

        • Mel

          Interesting… I thought I'd only get the $1 ecoupon on the smaller size but then that was only for Sensitive (which wasn't on sale) so I wasn't sure what to do. I might have to try that, 'cause that would be a great deal! I knew about the Stain Release ecoupon… just didn't know if it was ringing up at all stores as part of the promo. Thanks for the info!

          • Mel

            Finally… got to a store that actually had things marked! Got a pack of Charmin (12 pack–$5.99) and the $3 e-coupon came off! Also got Tide Release ($4.99 but free with $3 e-Q and $2 mfg. Q), Olay body wash and Olay lotion. Had a coupon for free lotion wyb a body wash, but somehow the cashier only took off $2 for the lotion. I didn't notice it 'til I had left and had tired kids so decided it wasn't worth it to go back. I still saved 78%!

      • Jnn_horan

        The question is ………. when does your kroger ads start??? We're in Texas and our ad runs from Wednesday to Tuesday. The sale ad on this post runs from Sunday to Saturday.

        • Mel

          Good thought, but ours also goes from Sunday to Saturday. I asked the cashier about the lack of signage and she indicated that they hadn't gotten around to it yet. I might try another Kroger in another town nearby. Maybe I'll have better luck.

        • Emmyab

          im in indiana, and our run from thurs to wed, its great cuz i get a jump start on the coupons before the ad starts

    • SmoochTheCook

      I sure can use some of the keebler stuff to restock my emergency cookies for scouts. I was wondering though, there is a $5 off 5 keebler products digital coupon available….that will apply if I get 5 items (well 6 to use the coupons too), right? Also, I want to hook up with the charmin and have several coupons to use along with the $3 digi one. If I buy, say, 3 of them, will the $3 digi coupon work on all 3 or will it just give that to me once? TIA!

      • Bee

        You have to have one e-coupon loaded per item.

      • Amy T

        It will only work once.

    • Bethaney11

      HA we have a La Grange in Kentucky too and I was like no way – you are up here visiting relatives or something…But I do like our store too :)

      • Megster77

        Thats what I was thinking too! I shop the LaGrange KY store sometimes

    • Mart

      I saw a good deal Sunday. The 4G Parmesean Cheese is on sale for 2.99( reg) 3.79.
      Use the 2.00 off coupon from one of the Sunday papers makes it .99! I stocked up on this deal.

    • Cmskelton

      All this for only $7.83!!! Going back later for a few more deals that printed coupons as I was checking out!!!

      • Delseynorth

        I did not know you can use reg coupons and ecoupons at the same time?

        • Alslaughter2

          There are VERY few stores left that will let you use both. :-(

          • Tessa

            If the e-coupon comes off what happens when you then go to use your paper coupon? Is the paper coupon rejected? Do you have a choice which one you use? I'd choose the double'd paper coupons and I like how I can use multiple paper coupons. Wondering how that works… my TX store still allows both apparently.

            • Cmskelton

              I always scan my Kroger card first thing…my e coupons came off automatically when the cashier pushed the total button. Then I handed her my paper coupons and she scanned them…..each that qualified for doubling, doubled automatically. She then looked up the prices for the few free items that I had and entered those amounts maually. Hope this helps.

    • Micrutan

      My Kroger marked the Christmas Ziploc bags 2/$3.00 all sizes and I used my coupons and recieved catalina coupons from my purchase $1.25 for every two boxes of ziploc bags. I purchased 8 boxes (if you minus my $5.00 receievd in catalina) for $3.34. Have your cashier do price check before you purchase not all krogers are doing this.

    • Yortski

      I was at Kroger today and purchased 2 Keebler Fudge Sticks, 1 Keebler Chips Deluxe, 1 Wheatables, 1 Wheatables Roasted Almond Nut Crisps (yummy!), 1 Fudge Graham 100 Calorie Right Bites for $3.37 after using an online coupon for $5/5 Keebler cookies/crackers, 3 paper for 1/2 cookies/crackers and receiving $3/3 on two separate transactions. I was also able to purchase my Nature's Bounty multi-vitamins for .50 after using $2/1 online and $2/1 printable. Thanks for the helpful information with respect to the additional items you could purchase that were included in the $3/3 Keebler sale, Jenny!

    • Ryrysmom2009

      • Shelleyschu

        I like your shopping trip, but tell your son that I REALLY like that he was good on the trip and got a treat!

    • Catherine

      Oh, I'm loving this P&G Mega Event. DH uses ONLY the Old Spice classic (he is very picky) which rarely goes on sale like the fancier and more expensive Old Spice versions. I've been hoping to stock up and got a bunch at 57 cents after Qs (would have gotten the smaller ones that were 79 cents rather than the big ones at 1.07 but I worried that he might reject them as not being the “same”–he's really finicky). Also got some regular Secret for me for 27 cents after Qs!

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Christy

      Our Kroger had Cricut die cutting machines for $69.99 and small cartridges for $12.50. They are seasonal ones- 1 for Thanksgiving and several for Christmas. :)

    • Guest

      I have a question about using all the different ecoupon sites…. alot of them have the exact same coupons. How does this work? If I have the same coupon loaded from 3 different sites, and I buy 3 of that item, will it work the 3 different times, or it is just one time per coupon regardless how many times I loaded it?

    • Guest

      I am new to Kroger shopping because I do not have one in my area. I will be out of town and thought I would attempt a Kroger run during this Mega Event. I noticed in the ad it says that the $4 comes off of your non-p&g purchase. so I have to purchase additional items to utilize these savings? Thanks in advance :)

      • GTJo1996

        Yep that is correct, so grab one item that costs $4 and toss it in the buggy and it will be free! .

      • Sandra

        I went to Kroger yesterday bought ALL p&g products and all of my 4$ came off. 35.00 dropped to 3.20 with deals and coupons!!!! WOOOHOOO

    • GTJo1996

      Athens, GA store (Epps Bridge Pkwy) has Tollhouse Dark Choc & Mint chips on clearance for 94 cents. Also snagged the Libby's Pumpkin Bread boxed set clearance at $2.05, if you still have the Qs for 50 cents which exp 12/31 and Kroger doubles it, that made these pumpkin bread mixes $1.05! Woohoo! They had a ton of these. Also had the Carnation Fudge kit boxed up for $2.05 too.

      I too had a hard time with the P&G deals. This partiocular Kroger did not have everything marked wit the P&G deal that I wanted to use a Q on. I managed to to make it work but it took me forever to locate 4 items that I actually had 4 Qs for.

    • SusanColeen

      I tried the Old Spice deal as you suggested, but since I only had one coupon for “buy a deoderant get a body wash free”, I only got 1 body wash free. They did not have the .89 size in deoderant (only antipersperant) so I had to buy the 1.29 size (normally 2.29) so they cost me .79 ea. Still a good deal, just not the GREAT deal I was expecting.

    • Jayne

      As of 1 Jan 2011, you can NO LONGER EARN GAS POINTS using reuseable bags at the Nashville, TN., Hwy 100 Kroger. Points earned in December can be redeemed thru 31 January. Is this nationwide, statewide, citywide or just local?????

    • Ashleyhomeschool

      La Grange Kroger is the best They allow expired Qs on rainchecks and I just learned last nite that they accept comp Qs. I love my friends at La Grange Kroger

      • DW in GA

        Do they take Target coupons? I live in LaGrange and hate that Publix won't take them.

    • Pswoodall

      I am new to this whole coupon thingy. but I have noticed many pg coupons, but they do not come up in my zip when I go the pg site.
      any tips would be appreciated!
