Here are the deals at Kroger this week 3/22-3/28. There is a new instant savings deal this week.

Note: All PG e coupons expire on Tuesday 3/31.

If you are in the store and see something I missed please share it so we can all enjoy the savings!

  1. Load your P&G, Shortcuts and Cellfire Coupons before going out. (E coupons information)

    • Thanks for the P&G scenario!

      I really hate how Kroger’s sale prices are so varied regionally! I noticed several things in my ad are cheaper, which is nice because usually they are higher! Hoping the scenario will work for me because my Febreze candles are a $1 cheaper…now if only the gillette and herbal essence are!

    • Beth

      Do you know how many times we can do the P&G deal in one transaction?

    • Thanks for compiling such a complete list!

    • Annie

      Hi Jenny-

      Do you have to buy 3 different PG items? Or can I buy 3 Herbal Essensences for the deal to work?

      Thanks!!

      • Jenny

        You can buy 3 of the same items for the PG promotion.

    • CiCi

      I noticed that too that Kroger’s prices vary so much regionally. I’m in the North, lots of things here last week weren’t even in our ad :( But on a positive note, our coupons double up to .75!

    • CiCi

      i meant to say they double up to .99 at all of our grocery stores!

    • Kate

      Thanks Jenny!!! Your site is always so helpful :) I love waiting to see the Kroger list go up every week…your hard work is definitely appreciated!

    • Lynn

      I went to Kroger yesterday for the $3 off when you buy 3 deal. Check your receipt. I had to go back to Customer Service and get my $3 (I only bought three things) and they couldn’t figure out why it didn’t come off. I have a party this Saturday night and family coming into town for Easter next weekend so I’m hoping for some HUGE deals this week and next week!

    • MelRae

      Thanks, Jenny! The only thing I am *really* in need of is the Iams Dog Food. I am going to wait until April 1st and see if the e-coupons include one for Iams. I am planning to use coupons from the $120 booklet anyway.

    • Kelly

      Hello,

      Can you please tell me what the Rebate Booklet is?

      Thank you,
      Kelly

      • Jenny

        Kelly,
        The rebate booklet was a promotion that Procter and Gamble ran in January that if you bought $50 before coupons in P&G products they would mail you a rebate booklet of coupons worth $120 dollars. The rebate ended mid February though.

    • Rachel

      I found a coupon in the SS 1/25 for $2/2 bags of hershey chocolates. By buying 4 bags its actually cheaper than buying 3 bags with the $1.50/3 coupon. Just thought I’d let everyone know. Plus you still get your free dozen eggs!

      Thanks,
      Rachel

    • Do you think there will still be good matchups with the new p&G ecoupons for the month since those of us with Wednesday ad starts are missing this window of opportunity?

      • Jenny

        Sarah- I hope so! I already used some of these so it would be great to have another chance at it. I’ll let you know as soon as they are up. Just be patient sometimes P&G takes a day of downtime in between new coupons.

    • Question – where does it state the buy 3 Hersheys, get eggs free?
      I tried it and they had no idea what I was talking about. And I also couldn’t find it in the ad. Thanks!

      • Jenny

        There was a big poster up in the store near me about the deal. It wasn’t in the ad though just advertised in the store. It was a professional poster though and stated that it went through 4/4.

    • Rachel

      FYI, WackyMac pasta is on sale for 0.99 here in Atlanta. With the coupon from smart source online, it’s free!

    • Angela

      On Saturday, 3/28, I was informed by Kroger that I could notuse paper coupons along with the P & G e coupons. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    • jj

      I have not been to see the price yet, but there is a $1.50 off any vicks product with an exp. date 3/31 and a $1.50 off any Day- or Ny Quil P&G e coupon – together you can get $3 off. I’ll comment again when I get back, but anyone going tomorrow, bring that coupon in case it ends up being a free/cheap cold medicine.

    • I think the $1 off any McCormick blend, spice or extract is actually from RP 3/15.

      http://shewhoislaughingorcrying.blogspot.com/2009/03/kroger-shopping-list-for-week_30.html

    • Sally

      McCormick Grill Mates Spices, $1 ea
      -$1 off any McCormick Blend, Spice or Extract SS 3/15 (makes it FREE)

      The $1 off coupon referred to here was actually in my RedPlum 3/15, not my SmartSource 3/15.

      Thanks, Jenny, for all you help. Your site is fabulous!

    • jj

      ok, so I just got back ($59 worth for $16.02!!!) and the vicks Dayquil/nyquil was $4.99 for a 12 pack of capsules. So not a great deal, even with the coupons, but I got it anyway since the kroger brand was 2.99 and I had a $5/off of $45 coupon I wanted to use and it helped towards that.

      Thanks Sally for the heads up on the McCormick, I’ll have to get that if I go back later this week!

    • Blair

      Lynn,
      The ad says the $3 savings is on the Non Proctor & Gamble products in your purchase so since you only bought 3 P&G items, that may have been why it didn’t take it off your purchase.

      I’m with Beth….does anyone know how many times you can do this in the same purchase?

    • I used a $2 off coupon for the Gilette razors (for my husband) from pgesaver.com that plus $3 off with 3 participating P&G products I spent $1.99 on his razors!! Thanks for the heads-up on tese sweet deals!

    • I tried to do the Gillette shampoo deal today, but each of the shampoos were $3.85 each, which made them about $1 each after coupon. I was so disappointed because I was hoping they would be a money maker.

      Also, I bought the Hershey’s chocolate, but there was no egg discount, catalina, or anything. Plus, the store didn’t know what I was talking about.

    • leigh

      jenny,
      does kroger have its coupon policy posted anywhere. today when i was in there, they told me that it was policy to only take one internet printable coupon per transaction and that they will not take any over 1.25 or BOGO or for free items. Needless to say I had to take things off of my order because I didn’t want them without the coupons. I asked for the manager and she told me that it was Kroger’s policy. I said that it must be a new policy and she said no. I said well then it hasnt been enforced in the past because I always have more than one printable. She said that she hoped that that wasn’t the case and that it should have been enforced. I have never heard of this before. Im so confused!! first no cottonelle and now no internet coupons! what’s a girl to do?

    • I found a gread deal today.
      Neutra-air pack containing 2 cans at Kroger.
      I used B1G1 coupon. Thats 4 cans for $2.99!
      Don’t know if these packages can be found at other stores.

    • Melanie

      I don’t know if it is me or what, but I seem to have a lot of trouble with the e coupons at Kroger. For example, I know I loaded the Gillette shampoo coupon, but that amount was not taken off my bill. I did use paper coupons, so maybe that was a factor. I need to look in to it, or just realize that those e coupons do not work for me/my card, or something.

    • Charis Webster

      ***Per Kroger Corporate***

      You can use as many internet coupons per transaction as you want BUT you can ONLY by 2 of the same product

      For example

      I have internet coupons for Raisin Bran and Soup — I can use both coupons but only by 2 Raisin Brans and 2 Soups

      Get it???

    • Lynn

      Hello Everyone! I went to Kroger last night to use some coupons before they expired and had $247 worth of stuff pre Kroger card and coupons. I only put $107 on my atm card! Thanks for such a great list of deals! There were quite a few others in my store that weren’t listed here. I’m going to try and go through my receipt tonight and list them but I don’t recall all of the coupons I had. Almost everything I purhcased had a coupon associated with it and everything I bought was on sale!! Thanks again for the great list!!!

    • Brenda

      I went to the grocery last night and my Kroger also has the Bertoli Oven Bakes on sale for $4.98. There is a $2 off coupon on the Bertoli website (there’s a link on Coupon Bar) which makes them 2.98. Not bad considering the original prices is around $9.50.

      Regarding issues with e-coupons or internet coupons, I have only ever had a problem with 1 cashier at my Kroger. She sorted out every internet coupon I had and matched up same q’s and then compared the barcode numbers to make sure they weren’t duplicate copies. She refused to scan them before she checked the numbers. All q’s scaned with no beeps. I felt so bad I apologized to the man in line behind me. Now, I just avoid going to her line. No one else has ever questioned them. Good luck to those of you who are having problems.

    • Sophia

      Hi Jenny,

      Kroger is running a catalina deal for Post cereal. Buy 5 get $5 OYNP. The family size is $2.69 in the weekely ad. Does anyone know the price of the regular sizes? There were coupons in the 3/29 SS for $1/2 and $.55/1. With a good sales price could make for some cheap cereal!

      Thanks for all your hard work!

    • Jenny,
      I bought the 3 bags of chocolate and a dozen of eggs but did not get the $1.19 taken off my bill. I used my card. Did I do something or did they?

    • Alyssa

    • Sylvie

      Just ran into Kroger for a minute to see if they had any 4 packs of Cottonelle (they never do at mine, but a girl can wish). While I was there, I happened to see that Suave deodorant trial sizes were $1.19 (ish) I had the $1.00 off Suave deodorant coupon from last weekend…which didn’t designate any particular size, making deodorant 19 cents!!! Just wanted to let you guys know.

      Thanks Jenny for all the great info!!!

    • Connie…Atlanta area

      Our area Krogers are only allowing 2 IC per day!

    • Connie…Atlanta area

      Guess that should’ve said IP’s.

    • Connie…Atlanta area

      Also, does anyone know for sure that Kroger will double the IP coupons up to .50?

    • Activia yogurt, DanActive drinks, and Dannon 6 packs were all on sale for $1.99 at my Kroger…needless to say with the $1 coupons I had on each of them (doubled up to $1 at my Kroger!) I got me LOTS of yogurt this week! Which is good since I love yogurt. Thanks for all of your hard work!

    • Rebecca

      I was wondering if the people who are buying the Hershey’s candy are using the Hershey’s Bliss coupon and if you have to buy Hershey’s Bliss candy? I am new to this. Sometimes I see links to coupons where it has them and when I click on them it states for a specific item, yet it seems maybe if you just buy the brand it works? I’m just still trying to figure this all out.

      Connie, what part of Atlanta do you live? I live just outside of Atlanta near Stone Mountain. So, I can only use 2 total internet printed coupons when I shop?

    • Lori

      My free eggs deal didn’t work at my stor either and hershey’s was only on sale for $2.50 ea but that’s ok I needed eggs anyhow!

      But I used the $1 off Two 2 liters of Dr Pepper that was on the Food Lion printables plus my free dr pepper i got in the mail and got a sweet deal on those!

    • margie

      Jenny, you have mentioned once or twice a Home mailer from Kroger. I have had a kroger plus card for 1000 years, and have never received anything in the mail from them, not even bulk junk mail. I have even gone back to their website and reregistered my address. How do I get things from them?

    • I just want to know that Kroger has coupon books for their organic foods and drinks with their ads this week and at the cashier’s booths. There are some great deals that have buy one get one free and then you can use a coupon on top of that. Makes boxes of waffles like $1 and jars of organic juice $1. Also, our Kroger has a organic clearance table, so I got some clearance stuff and with coupons from the booklet, they were next to nothing.
