Kroger Logo

Things are pretty quite this week at Kroger. I was able to find a few extra deals, but whenevr they run this “cart buster” deal, things are generally pretty boring. Be careful the tags make you think it’s a mega event and they even have a flyer of all “participating items”. There is really nothing that they are participating in… no special discount or extra savings.

That said, if you find any other awesome deals leave a comment so we can all find them!

Don’t forget about all the deals advertised in the Kroger weekly ad this week.

    • WendyMK

      At my Kroger in Jefferson, GA today there was a close out on Domino sugar.  10# bags were $4.19 and 5# bags were $2.09.  Check your binders for .50/1 4# or 5 # bag, making 5# bags of granulated sugar $1.09 each!!!

      • prdarmywife

        at my kroger in crossville Tn the five pound bags were 1.99 which I got for 99 cents after the coupon

    • drdsmom

      I found the Nivea Kiss of Recovery lip care on closeout for $1.49.  Use the $3 off 2 coupon in today's paper and they are FREE!  I was able to get 8!

      • BethM

        They had those on closeout at my Walgreens too

      • Laura

        I just saw the shelf tag for that at my store today…but they were all gone :(
        I noticed it at Walgreens last week & theirs were all gone too.

      • Troop949

        The cashier at my Kroger wouldn't let me use the coupon since the value exceeded the price of the lip balms.  :-(  Be warned that not all cashiers will let you use the coupon on the closeout lip balms!

        • Frances

          Complain to the manager.  I had a cashier told me that I could not use the $1 Reach floss coupon  when the floss was .89.  I talked to customer service and they reduced the value of the coupon to .89.

    • Sngodin4

      I also found the Skinny Cow candy at the register for 50 cents…..got that B1G1 coupon?

      • Kelley_m_butler

        Free at CVS this week.

    • Kelly

      How can u use 2 coupons for the beggins strips? I thought u could only use 1 per item?

      • Ant0288

        in her little scenario you buy 4 items… the $1/2 is for two items the 2 b1g1 coupons are for the other 2 items…

        • Kelly

          oh gotcha..

      • Kelly

        The Coupon I have for it is Buy 4 get $4 off. WIth the Buy one get 1 free sale thats going on at my Kroger, I can get 4 for 4 bucks.

      • Wendy

        If you happen to be in the Delta Region, we have true bogo sales.  The first item rings up at full price and the second one is free.  If you're shopping the Paducah, KY stores you should have no problem using the bogo coupon to make them both free.  Really wish I'd had more of these coupons!

        • Kelly

          I have one extra of Buy 4 get $4 off, and 3 of the $1/2 if u want them.

      • mommyof1

        the only coupon i could find on the beggin strips were $1 off of 2.. i used mine the other day. (still a good deal.. we have 3 dogs and go thru food and treats fast)

    • Jodispink

      What is the “Kroger My Magazine: Bringing up Baby”?   Is this something you subscribe to?   Thanks

    • Wichitawiserly

      For those of you that take your children to “Well-Child” visits. I have found Playtex and Tylenol coupons at the doctor's office in the examination room. Got the B1G1 cups the other day for a steal!

      • CropQueen

        Mine pediatrician had Advil and All Free Qs

    • Eric

      The Savanah Morning News Wish bone Dressing “Q” is $1 off one making it $0.66 each!

      • mommyof1

        I clipped mine yesterday and it is $1 off 1 dressing.. what a  great deal.. even cheaper than the bogos at publix when they are on sale (at least in my area)

    • Beth

      When does Cart Busters start? There is a small little graphic on the ad today but I am thinking it starts Wednesday since nothing in the ad is labeled Cart Busters. Anyone know? If it started today, how do you know what is part of it?

    • Katherine

      I used the $.50 off crest toothpaste from today's paper to get Crest Toothpaste for free.  I bought 3 toothpastes and got a $2.50 catalina from crest to make this a moneymaking deal!!

      • rkelley

        were are you

            I am in D ville too !!! :)

      • Zee

        My Kroger's never wants to give Catalina's I almost left without mine

      • Fsu1april

        Yes, mine in KY also still has the Crest, Ivory, and Softsoap for $1.00. It seems like there are a lot of carry overs from last week.

        • mommyof1

          im happy the ivory is still on sale.. it was completely wiped out last week.. but the funny thing is they had TONS for the $1 toothpaste.. guess people in my area didn't see the ones they had because they were pushed all the way back in the shelf and on the bottom shelf at that..    so make sure you always check the very back! seems people are too lazy to bend over =)

        • Dave

          All you have to do is look at the sale sticker and there is an expiration date of the sale on each sticker.  The ivory soap and crest expires on 87.  Typically these type of sales last two weeks.  The first week is advertised and the second week is unadvertised as a carry over week.

    • Zee

      Honest Tea was 10 for 10, had some $1/1 coupons expiring today from the Facebook deal and Recyclebank

    • Rachelmae_23

      My Kroger in Middle Tennessee still has Neosporin Lip Health and a Nevia lip health on close out too! You can find coupons for both making them crazy cheap!

    • Rachel

      the smallest pkg of carefree liners are still $1 this week through the 6th. use the 50c newspaper q and they are free! worked for me sat. couponsthingsbydede dot com seems to have plenty if you want to order. my local newspaper did not carry these this time. she also just put up her ivory qs, not in the search engine yet, look under “newly added”

    • Rachel

      also the kroger brand “maple flavor” peanut butter is $1, tag reads expires 10/1. These have not been in stock at the stores I shop at but I thought you might want to check your store. not tried this before but I would like to.

    • Rachel

      if you got the libbys $1/4 veg coupons, they are 60c through 9/10 (35c a can!)

    • Pcanada28

      My store had a closeout on Domino granulated sugar.  The 5lb bag was 2.07 and the 10lb bag was 3.99!  I was able to use a 50 cent coupon that doubles and 5 lbs of sugar only cost 1.07!  I also grabbed a couple of the 10 lb bags (it takes lots of suger to can pickles!)

    • Jbaima2

      We found Domino's sugar on close out @ our Kroger. Five pound bags for $2.09 I had .50$ coupons. I bought two of them for $1.09 each

    • Diana

      I went to my Kroger this morning looking for the sugar close-out deal, and the shelves had been cleared out. I only wanted one bag. The Nivea lip balm was gone too. As was the French's B1G1 mustard.   :(

    • Hanna

      I just left Kroger and got 12 bars of soap, one tube of toothpaste, and two nivea lip balms for 44 cents! I am new to couponing and I love it!

    • amy

      i found domino 5lb bags of sugar on closeout for 2.07 and i had .50 copuons

      • Logansmommy05

        Where are the closeouts? In any specific area? Or just in their normal places?

        • Laura

          At my store there is a small section next to the cust service desk. There is a second small section in the rear of the store next to the milk fridge. Both sections have mixed items from all departments. Sometimes there is extra stuff in one or more regular shopping baskets wheeled up next to the closeout shelves.

          There is a small shelving unit near the bread that has the half price bread & buns about to hit their sell by date. And of course in the bakery section is always a shelving unit of half price breads, cakes, doughnuts, pies etc about to hit their sell by date.Closeouts are also here & there where the product was originally stocked. Not sure when they decide to move them on to the regular closeout sections. So to sum up–all over the store :D

        • Efranks41

          At our Kroger store, the closeouts are right there on the shelf where they usually are located, but with a special “Close Out” tag. Then, there are Clearance shelves located between the Pharmacy and Deli, but these shelves could be anywhere in your store. Just ask Customer Service or anyone at the registers where they are located. This is where you will find the “Manager's Specials” which are usually half priced or lower! It is good to always check these shelves.

    • Dyer8285

      I am having the same problem with Kroger. When I get there things are gone. Im new to couponing. When is the best time to shop for deals at Kroger? Im excited to get started but have only been able to walk away with rain checks. I want to be there when there is stuff to get  lol Someone help!

      • Amy

        If something is out of stock, ask for a raincheck. Don't feel bad if you walk out with a stack – they come in handy. Also, ask when the truck comes in so that you can shop around that time. Sometimes, when products go out of stock, it takes the store a while to get more product in. A nice chat with CS should help you with your problem.

    • Marlamae

      At my kroger they still had the pillsbury brownies on sale for $1. Got to use my coupon and got it for $.20! They were all gone last wk. Unfortunately they were all out of the toothpaste and toothbrushes. I guess i should have grabbed a rain check? I've never done that before.  Maybe they'll extend this sale too and i can get those next wk! haha  And i saw on here that kroger might stop doubling coupons, but today all my coupons doubled.

      • Email_laurentorres

        try to make it back to the store before Sat for your rain check…it's always worth the few minutes at customer service!

    • savingmoney11

      Went to my kroger last night and got 10 crest q .50 and 8 Ivory soap bars w q .5 and three of the kroger 10/10 fruit cans. Not sure what happened in the 1st trans of the 10, but got back 1.86 and the $2 Catalina. the second transaction w q's. Was 3.86 w another printout for $2 crest Catalina . So all in all, after the leftover catLina and the first transaction overage, it was free. It will be a good donations go someone in need.

    • lovesavingmesomemoney!

      My Kroger had the Nivea brand chapstick on closeout for $1.49. Use the $3 off of 2 coupon in yesterday's paper and you just made yourself a penny plus 2 free chapsticks! :D

      • Hdavis-976

        Where were the coupons in the paper?

        • Efranks41

          Go to Coupon Database on the Home Page of this website…upper right corner. Click this and key in Nivea Lip in the search box and it will tell you exactly where to find the coupon.

    • Bdool30

      SO I am new to couponing…. just curious, does froger change the unadvertised sales sunday evening? Just curious because of when the unadvertised deals are posted and it kinda makes sense for more things to go on clearance after the big Sunday rush if something didn't sell as expected…. any guidance would be useful since I am trying to plan on when to make my shopping trips

    • Momhicks4

      Crest is on sale 10/10 with P&G 7/31 coupons = free toothpaste.

        • michelle

          I actually emailed Platex and requested a coupon.  They sent me one for $3.00 off.  Very helpful!!

    • Shaina121781

      At my Kroger in Loganville, GA they had Pledge Dusting wipes on closeout for $1.74 originally $3.49.  I'm not sure if there are any coupon matchups, but it still seemed like a good price to me!!  Happy Couponing!!  =)

    • Teneshab

      I went to Kroger's tonight and I thought I did everything right but It didn't go as planned
      I got 30 tubes of Crest toothpaste and 16 OB toothbrushes
      I had a coupon for all of them that should have made them free but I ended up paying $7.49. Not that I am complaining I just don't know what I did wrong…

      • Belle1tigger1

        It may be where the toothbrush coupon was only for $.75 off, and the toothbrush was $1.00. That would make it $ 4 for those, then add tax on everything. Is the only thing I can think of. Cause the toothpaste coupons were $.50 and doubled to $1.00. HMMM. I would look over my receipt and see if you can figure it out. Krogers is VERY good about fixing things.

      • Learn22read

        The coupon is $.75/2 for the OB toothbrushes that Kroger has on sale… It was free with the coupons last month, not this month..  :(

      • Baileybaby2007

        If you are in a state that requires sales tax (which mine does), that may be what it was….

      • Mfecope

        Yeah, you had to pay the sales tax on this. The coupons don't cover the tax.

    • Danielspo5

      At the Grayson Ga Kroger, I found Triamentic Acetaminiphin in the clearance bin for $1.50 each regularly 5.99. I also found the dual packs of Daytime/Nightime Cold for $3.49 regularly 9.99. Maybe this is going on at other Krogers but I know at my house with 3 young kids, we use a lot of Tylenol (acetaminiphin

    • Melb1970

      Kroger is doing a Deal of the Day e-coupon until Aug 16.  So far I have gotten 4 coupons and they all match the cartbuster sale.  They are great coupons, better than the printed ones I have of those items.  Today is $1.00 off 1 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, which will make these $1.00 with the sale.  Yesterday was $1.00 off Ore Ida Sweet Potato Fries.  The other two were $2.00 for Cottonelle and $1.50 Klondike Bars. So don't miss these.

    • Mfecope

      They do have their Welch's grape jelly on sale for 1.99 and this past weekend paper had a coupon for .35 this doubled makes it 1.29.

    • bertcrumb

      I found some Skintimate Moisturizing Shave Cream on the clearance shelf for $1.99 and I had a $1.50 coupon so I only paid 49 cents!

    • Efranks41

      Today I was all set with my $2 Purina Dog Chow coupon and $2 SavingStar coupon for the same, until I got to the Clearance area and found a 15.5 lb bag of Purina Beneful regularly priced at 12.99, marked Mgr's Special at 5.49!! Didn't have a coupon, but I couldn't pass that one up!!

    • Gabi

      I went this morning, and the Kroger on Two Notch had a bunch of their back to school supplies marked down 75% or more. I got a few packs of Crayola 24 ct Crayons for 39 cents each (OP $2.39). Great for stocking stuffers or OCC :-)
