free shampoo There is an opportunity to get a FREE Dove Men+Care Shampoo and Conditioner at Kroger! The Dove Men+ Care Shampoo or Conditioner is $2.49 wyb (5) participating Mega Event Items.

Also, some of you will have received a $2.50 off in the 3/23 Redplum Coupon insert. When you combine those (2) deals, it makes for some FREE Shampoo! It’s always nice to have some extra shampoo on hand, or it makes a great item to donate as well.

Deal Idea:

Dove Men+ Care Shampoo or Conditioner, 12 oz, $2.49
-$2.50 off Dove Men+Care hair item, excl trial size, RP 3/23
(makes it FREE)

      Jenny can you help?? Apparently Kroger has changed their computers, now if you have a coupon that has overage the computer peeps “coupon exceeds item” and the cashier tries to decrease the amount of the coupon. I went to war with them last week because their coupon policy says “We take Manufactor coupons at face value” The first time I called corporate I was told I did get the full amount of the coupon, but the next time I shopped and it did the same thing, I called again and got a very rude person saying I did not get the full amount of the coupon, only the price of the item.

        Maria – What they do, in all honesty, is decrease the amount of your coupon but then they submit it for the whole amount. If they tell you they can decrease it, they either don’t know coupon policy/legality or they are lying. I’d like to think they just don’t know, but it always makes me feel cheated when someone does this, too. :(

          If they decrease the amount of your coupon and submit it at full value to the manufacturer then they are committing fraud. They are getting back more money than they gave you. I haven’t run into this (yet) but I would be sure to let the manager know it is fraud. If they don’t comply, I would offer to have a conversation with the manufacturer about it.

      So does that mean you won’t get the overage on your overall purchase or how does that work? I’ve never run into a problem like that, but I am a beginner couponer.

      • ArtOfSophie

        sometimes you have to get a filler item so the system doesn’t try to decrease the value of your coupon. Used to, you could get overage, but stores are getting more strict with that now.

    • Kelly

      Do you have to buy five to get the deal?

      • ArtOfSophie

        you just have to buy 5 participating Mega Event Items to get the deal. Can be anything (food, beauty, ect.) it just has to be marked as a participating Mega Event item

          Oh ok, thanks

    • ArtOfSophie

      this is such a good deal! I didn’t get the Dove q in any of my SS inserts yesterday! :( such a bummer, maybe I can find them online?

    • Samantha Tim Steed
