    • DaisyDiva

      I just got back from Kroger a few minutes ago. I got free deoderant from Degree. I had coupons from a couple weeks ago for $2 off and they were on sale for 1.69, part of the buy 10 deal, so I actually made money.  :-)

      • Mcampbell311

        Where were those coupons from? If you don't mind me asking.

    • Khara827rn

      Are these school supplies a good price?

      • Most of them are.  We might see the composition books hit 33¢ ea. and the filler paper hit 25-33¢.

    • Susan

      Are the closeout deals in a separate aisle?

      • Ashwilliams87

        not always, some have a lil red sticker that sy closeout in the section with like items. there usually is a little section in the store that has them all together

      • Aking3

        Closeouts are throughout the store… Managers specials are usually in a section around the pharmacy and/or frozen food section….depending on your Kroger.

    • Ndidlake

      What's the Walgreens coupon calendar?

      • Alison

        A wall calendar sold exclusively at Walgreens I believe made by Mead company with a coupon at the bottom of each month's page – the coupons are for crayola products, mead envelopes, and Hefty storage/freezer bags. I found one a couple of months ago in the clearance section – I doubt you will have any luck finding one now.

    • PrinS1806

      What is the smart savings booklet?

      • Christine

        It's the coupon booklet that is available at Publix right now.  You will most likely have to ask customer service for one, because they haven't had them out with their normal ads in the stores I have been in.  They have Publix coupons, and many manufacturer's coupons also!

    • Jenny1199

      I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

    • Ashwilliams87

      scanned the clearance section in my kroger and heres what i got. Pantene shampoo close out for2.49 pantene conditioner 2.49 both 25.4oz used $1/2 got them for $2 each. regular price $4.97 each.

    • Saturday, At Wal-Mart, Kellogg's product samples and coupons were being given out.  They gave me 12 coupon booklets full of different coupons for Kellogg's products.  One coupon was a $0.75 off of any one Eggo frozen item.  I used these coupons to make the Eggo Waffles $1.14 at Kroger.

    • Dtcox

      thank you jenny cant wait to hit kroger tomorow to stock up more for winter //// you can never be too early ha ha

    • so i just came back from kroger and once again i get so mad !!!! they had the chiquita apple bites for $0.49 cent and i had a manufacturer coupon for $1/2  and the cashier and also the manager said they can't take the coupon because it exceeds the value,now its not the first time it happens sometimes they just adjust it to the value sometimes they just take it and i actually get overage ,this time they said they can't,and don't get me wrong i was not trying to make money just get some Free apple bites ,They had these a while back on the same sale and i had bought a couple and even still had the receipt in my bag and showed them.
      i think kroger's coupon policy varies literally by cashier/manager mood!!!!

      • Hasims

        I totally agree!!  I just wrote an email to them about this, and told them that between having to make sure I have 5 or 10 of their sale items to get the sale price in the first place and then their constantly changing coupon policies it almost isn't worth my time to shop there anymore, especially since our local chain, Schnucks, usually has similar sales and also double coupons.  So if I wait it out, I can get the same deals there.  I doubt Kroger will care, but they just make me so mad lately!!!

      • Megansoeder

        I went and they took mine.. I got 2 bite for free and I got the family 4 pack for .49 cents.. No trouble at all ..

      • Megansoeder

        I went and they took mine.. I got 2 bite for free and I got the family 4 pack for .49 cents.. No trouble at all ..

      • rachel

        i think so too. i've always used the cupons on my kroger card and paper cupons for the same product as long as i've been shopping at kroger. never had a problem with it, even when i lived in Tennessee. just the other day there was a new cashier who wouldnt take my paper ones cause i already had ones off my card. she then got someone over her who told me the same thing. i know they had done it before and even a cashier told me i could before i started when i moved here. dont get it. so i might just watch for certian cashiers or go certian times of the day.

    • CouponSaverSally

      My Kroger had Cover Girl on the clearance table.  I used my CG coupons from PG and got some .49 cent concealer and mascara!

    • Pinkfire86

      At my Kroger in Knoxville, TN Mt. Olive pickles are on sale 3/$5. Using the .50/1 Mt. Olive coupon that was in the paper a few weeks ago makes them around 60 cents each.

    • Auburncouponmon

      Thanks! Got bulk of school supplies bought!

    • gina

      This past Friday I was passing by the clearance buggy and spotted a KY product marked down from $18.99 to $8.00.  Checked my $7 KY coupon (I think it was off of Facebook if Im not mistaken) I had in my binder and– what do you know– it was one of the products included.  Got KY Intrigue 2.75 oz for $1.00!  I got lucky, lucky, lucky

    • melodiel

      I really wanted the rubbermaid glass B1G1. . .although at my store, the glass was NOT included. :(

    • Ibdqt34

      The Ronzoni Garden Delight Pasta isn't on sale at my store…it's $1.99. I live in the Triangle in NC.

    • jennychie

      So, help me out here. I am trying to do this coupon thing and i have to start somewhere somehow. Can anyone help me please. I don't understand the icon that says M (manufacturer's coupon), so what does that mean, where is the coupon for that?

      • Lgfroggin

        Basically, there are 2 types of coupons, “S” for store and then “M” for manufacturer. The manufacturer coupons are found all over the place, but usually the location is listed here. For example the -.75/2 Scotch Brite sponges, scour pads, SS 6/05 means that the coupon is in the Smart Source flyer in the the sunday paper dated 6/5. Sometimes, it just says printable, you can click on the word printable and go to the link. Other times the coupon is found in a magazine or mailer. Most stores will let you use 1 store and 1 manufacturer coupon for the same product. Also, some stores are tricky and say that the coupon is redemmable at “Publix” but it is really a manufacturer coupon and can be used anywhere. You can tell a manufacturer coupon from a store coupon because a manufacturer coupon will start with a small “5” under the bar code. Hope this helps.

      No problem with the Pop-Tarts coupon. Only saved 36% because I splurged on shrimp, but got a free crab cake at least.
      * Free 3 Musketeers Candy Bar 2/$1 coupon for .50 that doubled (SS)

      **  FYI ** If you need Crocs. free shipping with springfreeship, plus 20% off if you sign up. They have a 60% off sale right now.

    • Amanda

      i went to my kroger in shreveport,LA today and they had herbal essence shampoo for $2.94 and i had a coupon for B1G1 for $3 off..the cashier said i couldnt use my coupons because it was over the price of shampoo…i dont understand?

    • Anne_1337

      Kroger had 20 ct Carefree pantiliners for $1.09 minus the .50 coupouns, that doubled, making them .09 each!

      • Amberchurch09

        walgreens has a coupon in there booklet for 3 off 2 carefree lines with (2) .50 off that make the free.

      • Amberchurch09

    • Chandlerz4

      I just got back from my Kroger in VA and they have Wisk laundry detergent B1G1…2.99 each.  I had 6 $2/1 coupons (not sure which insert they were from, had already cut them out and put in my coupon book) making each one .99…original price of one is over $6 so really I got 5 bottle FREE!! Yay!

      • kim

        can you tell me which kroger in va you went to? i also have those coupoons

      • Jjeana

        ok so if the wisk was b1g1 and you have the $2/1 coupon,could you not use 2 coupons and get them free plus overage?

        • Efranks41

          No, doesn't work that way. You can only use 1 coupon off the 1 item that you bought. The other was free with the B1G1 coupon.

      • I know someone else is going to be searching like I did – RP 6/26

    • Ahogan8

      Can someone please explain the e-coupons.  I know you can't use an e-coupon and a paper coupon.  But can you use a Kroger e-coupon (from the Kroger website) and a cellfire e-coupon.  Which one will be used if you load both of them on your card?

      • Troop949

        Not sure, but I would imagine that the Kroger e-coupons would be used first, since they are “store” coupons.  However, if you have both a Kroger & a Cellfire e-coupon and you buy 2 of that item, both e-coupons should come off.

      • Ajunie

        I have learned a trick around not being able to combine Kroger e- coupons and paper coupons, if you give your Kroger card and then your paper coupons the computer catches it BUT if you do the paper coupons and then give the cashier your kroger card last it takes both off. I have done this several times and have seen it on my reciept, just one way to get by the computer.

        • Efranks41

          Yes, but I don't think your coupons that would have doubled will double if you don't give the Kroger card first. It would pay to check that, maybe with an item or two, not a large shopping trip!

    • BRITTANY37098

      Does anyone have the M $1/1 Finesse hair product Q from SS 5/8??? i really could use 2. Just let me know and I will be willing to tried if there is a Q I have that you might need. thanks!!

      • Jennyfaszholz

        I have 3 or 4 I can mail you. Email me your address and I will put them in the mail today! jennyfaszholz@yahoo.com

    • Lsmcclellan

      I'm new to couponing.  I was looking at the Kroger unadvertised deals and I don't understand how the coupon for French's mustard is advertised as $1.49, but it says in parenthesis below that if you use -.50/1 coupon it will only be $.49.  How does that work.  Is this a double coupon? Will the coupon say it's a double coupon or is that something the store does?

      • Garyswife96

        Kroger doubles(matches) the  coupons up to 0.50. This varies from different stores. They don't, however, double thier own coupons only manufacturer, as there is no amount t 'match' being thier coupon. Hope this helps : ). Welcome to the wonderful world of coupons!!! : )

      • rachel

        a lot of the krogers will double cupons up to .50. you will just have to check with your individual store. i think some will even triple. but the mustard is 1.49, you use the .50 cupon which will double to 1.00 making the mustard only .49. kroger has a cuponing rules on their website as most places do.

    • Martinez2351379

      Also don't forget that Texas Krogers don't double or triple anymore so sometimes the “makes it” prices don't match what it will really be in our area.

      • Kimbulgrien

        I'm in Texas and mine still doubles and triples.  Hm.

      • Kate

        All the ones I go to in North Texas still double/triple

      • coupon Greene

        Some Krogers in the Dallas area are still doubling and tripling coupons

    • dkc

      The Johnson and Johnson shampoo was not $1.59 at my Kroger:( I did find the scotch brite sponges and the glassware bygo so still worth the trip.

      • Jtylutki1980

        mine neither :( it was 3.59!

        • dkc

          It was $3.11 at mine I even took it up and had them do a price check to make sure.

    • guest

      Was pleasently surprised with my kroger trip today. I bought my monthly supply of Gerber Good Start baby formula (10 cans) and recieved 3 $3 off your next order coupons. I then used them on my grocery order (along with my other grocery coupons) and got it down to 2.15, including tax. 96% savings! My best shopping trip yet.

    • Misilou38

      No J&J shampoo available in 30189…I was just there

      • Ibdqt34

        I found them! I have 20 if you are interested. ibdqt34 at hotmail dot com

        • So which insert are they in?  I remember seeing them, but I searched everywhere!

    • Lsmcclellan

      I'm having trouble interpreting my Kroger receipt.  How do I know if I got the mega deal discount for $3 off of 10 items?  It gives me the total savings, but it's not broken down so I can't see where I saved.

      • it will show .30 off each item in the mega deal on the line below it

    • charlie

      When I went to Kroger today they had the 12oz 24 can pepsi products for $5.99 and they all had a $1 off coupon attached to them. They had a limit of 5. This is usually the best price I can get Mountain Dew at.

    • Efranks41

      I found an Annie's Naturals Organic Dressing on clearance for 1.39 at our Kroger in Tupelo, MS.  Every “little” deal helps!  :)

    • Ajunie

      I found lysol touch free soap dispensers at my local Kroger as a unadvertised sale for $7.49 so with a $3.00 off 1 coupon its only $4.49, I was excited since they retail between $10.00 – $12.00.

      • thats what they are atmalmart as well but are 10 at DG!

      • IDRVS

        There was a $5 DG IP coupon a couple weeks back and I stacked it with the $3 coupon and got them for $2 ea

    • Azna1234

      I just found an e-coupon for Disney Gummies Vitamins at Kroger website. It's BOGO at Kroger. I couldn't find any coupon in RP 6/05 as it was listed.

    • Seanmart

      I just got back from my Kroger here in Marietta, GA and found some closeout deals to share. I am not sure all the stores are doing these, but check and see, especially if you have any coupons for these items:
      *Neutrogena Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration  Moisturizer $3.75 (reg. 14.99)
      *Neutrogena  Ageless Essentials Night Cream Moisturizer $4.50 (reg.19.99)
      *Garnier Wrinkle (Foam) Cream $3.75 (reg. 19.99)
        *Check the shelf for other markdowns in this area. Also check the packaged potato/pasta isle, I saw some markdown/closeout deals there, too. Happy shopping!
