Pillsbury is hosting a bake-off contest on their website.

If you enter as a Kroger shopper, you will get a $5 off Kroger eCoupon uploaded to your account.

All you need to do is enter one of your fantastic recipes by April 18th! Your eCoupon will expire on May 15th.

Heads up, the winner will receive 1 million dollars!

(Thanks Linda)

Note: Many of you have had problems accessing this one, but for some repeated tries have been fruitful.  Sorry if yours doesn’t work out!

      I did this (submitted the recipe according to their specifications) and was told I qualified for the credit. It showed the $5 coupon to me with an accompanying button to load the coupon on my card and gave me the sign-in screen for my $5 coupon. No matter how many times I attempted to load (and after I supposedly did it would show another screen saying I could win $1 million). It hasn't loaded to my card yet and I sent an email to Pillsbury (because Kroger has no control over these promotions). I haven't heard back about it.

      • Michelle

        I had the same problem! I know several other women who did as well.

      • Maria

        mine did that a few times, i got out of it and then back in and then it was there to load, so try that.

      • Icoupon

        Same problem here too. So frustrating!

      • Mindy

        I called customer service at Kroger and they said that they were aware of the problem and were attempting to fix it. They said they would email me with a resolution…no email yet!

    • 50watts

      Me too. Keeps telling me to sign in, but it won't take me to the sign in page.

    • SchoonCR

      Ditto. I click the CLAIM $5 HERE, and it takes me to the kroger site, but there is no coupon to load.

    • Tiffany

      I had to try it a few times but it worked. YEAH!!

    • Beth

      I know this isn't the place to leave this question, but it's about Kroger, so here goes….I read an old comment from you (Jenny) that said “you can get toilet paper free almost every week at Kroger.” I've conquered toothpaste. Now I want to conquer toilet paper. Can you help?

    • Kristin

      Beth…how do you get the free toothpaste?

      • Ebonyannette

        probably the colgate deal $10/10 and use $1/1 q's. I want to know about the TP also!!

      • Leigh

        They have Colgate alot for 10/$10. This week Colgate is 98 cents. There is 50 cent coupons out that double and make it free and there are also $1 coupons out. If you look at the post from Jenny for the weekly ad, it's listed under personal care.

    • Ebonyannette

      I got this to load to my card the other day but It wont come off my order at Kroger! Idk Y, i have tried it without doing any other e-coupons or mega stuff and it still wont come off but its on my page when i log into my ecoupon account!

      _for those having trouble the way i did it was it pops up a new window to add it to your card, well i log in, then close that window go back and click the promo link again and when it brings up the kroger window this time Im signed in and i scroll down and click load to card. and it worked.

      • Bee

        I even tried that and it did not load onto my card. I had no problems signing in and choosing the coupon to load but it just never appeared on my card.

        No big deal, I'm sure my recipe wasn't original enough to get upset about giving away for “free” (as all recipes become their property whether they win or not).

      • Abi

        Remember to print your ecoupon grocery list that shows what coupons are loaded to your card, that way if it doesn't come off at the register they will refund you at customer service. My store is very gracious about this as long as your Kroger card # is on one of the pages you printed. I have always been refunded when I can prove it is on there!

    • SchoonCR

      You need to make sure that both of the e-mail addresses that you use to sign-in/register at both Kroger, and Pillsbury match. Once I changed those, and entered a 3rd recipe, the coupon showed up when I was directed to the kroger page. HOWEVER, when I click on it to sign in, it didn't, after repeatedly trying, I was able to sign in, but i had vanished. :(

    • Ksolak

      I tried for about 6 hours yesterday and could not get the coupon to load. It wouldn't even go to the sign in page!

    • Jcasto304

      woohoo! worked for me! printed off a list of my kroger ecoupons just incase it doesnt come off my total during checkout :)

    • Bdbsweets

      I love your website southern savers!!!!!!

    • mel

      So do I just enter the constest and put the grocery store that I shop at is Kroger and I will get the e-coupon? What do I need to do special to get the e-coupon?

    • Hildawins

      I completed it, but don't see it on my coupon account? Does it appear?

    • Debbie

      It worked fast and easy for me today so maybe traffic was just too heavy yesterday. Thanks so much! I needed the free $5.00 credit this week!

    • Kenzbug

      My $5 is loaded to my Kroger account, but didn't come off at checkout last night. I hope it works next week.

    • MK

      $5 shows up on my Kroger ecoupons, but did NOT take off at the store- and I did 2 separate transactions! Very frustrating, but guess next time I go I will have the print off that shows it!!

    • Samantha

      Mine did not come off today either!

    • Kittikat1119

      Added fine, but like others are saying, it did not come off today. We do have until May to use it though, so there is time.

    • Lhazzard

      Just wanted to let y'all know I spoke with someone in Kroger customer service tonight and they said that to use that reward, you need to go to a regular check out line instead of the self check.

      • Mellyjelly79

        I went to a regular check out line and it didn't work for me.

      • WynetteC

        It worked for me finally! Thanks for this tip, I hardly ever go through the regular lanes. :)

    • Bdbsweets

      5 didn't subtract from my total either :(

    • Griffingirl69

      I have tried and tried, mine will not load to my card~guess I'll try again tomorrow..

    • 50watts

      I filed a complaint through the Kroger coupon site. Just got a response from General Mills from the e-mail complaint I filed. They have added a $5.00 coupon to my card. Here's what the e-mail said:

      Thank you for contacting the General Mills Pillsbury Bake-Off Help Center.

      We apologize for the difficulty in adding the $5.00 coupon to your card
      that you earned by submitting your recipe to the Pillsbury Bake Off

      We have added a coupon to your card for $5.00 (good on any order). This
      customer service coupon will come off on your next shopping trip (provided
      the balance due – less tax – is greater than the coupon amount).

      Hope this works for you!

      • Mellyjelly79

        How long did it take you to hear back from them? I wrote mine a couple of days ago.

    • brian

      I added mine last night and used it today at the self check lane. No problems for me.

    • Flossie Dalia

      Just got mine to load to the card. Hope it works when I check out, which they always do.

    • kelly

      This is frustrating. My account shows that it's loaded (for days now) but I went to Kroger yesterday. Spent $24 and the $5 did not come off! This is just like the deli tray that did not come off either!!! I wonder what's going on because my other e-coupons work!?!? I'm still waiting to hear back from Kroger about the FREE (up to $12) deli tray issue. I'll keep yall posted! Thanks for all your help & knowledge Jenny!

    • Kristen

      what if I accidentally logged on and didn't put kroger shopper… I have tried twice and it doesn't let me change that anymore? Darn spent too much time loading recipe and didn't the deal????

    • Juliea201

      I used mine tonight; came off first with no problems whatsoever though I brought a printout of my Kroger ecoups just in case. :)

    • Samantha

      The coupon didnt show at first but I got credit for it today, nice surprise!

    • Ambernicolejules

      Ok so I am not the only one with the issue. I loaded my coupon 4 days ago after giving my recipe! It was on my card today I go to Kroger and nothing so I came home and its not on my account at all. Not under available or used???? I check my email where I find this:
      We noticed that you had difficulty adding the $5.00 coupon to your card that you earned by submitting your recipe to the Pillsbury Bake Off Promotion.

      We have added a coupon to your card for $5.00 (good on any order) on Thursday, 2/24/2011. This customer service coupon will come off on your next shopping trip (provided the balance due – less tax – is greater than the coupon amount). Please note that this coupon can only be redeemed by one person in your household and since it was loaded on 2/24, it may have already been redeemed by you or someone else in your household.

      We apologize for the confusion. Have a great day!
