Kroger Weekly Ad 1/25-1/31

on 1.25.2009 at 5:13pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Mega Deal continued!! If you didn’t already buy half the store now is your chance to go again. There are a few added items this week, and a few price changes (some up some down). I just got back from walking Kroger to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I’m pretty sure it is all here but please leave a comment or email me if you see something I missed!

Here is what I recommend: copy the entire list into a word document, delete what you don’t want, then print it and head to the store. As you buy Mega sale items place a number by that item for how many are in your cart. You can only buy 30 mega items per transaction so do multiple transactions if needed.

There are some things that you will possibly not see the price this low again for a long time (if ever). Stock up on those items! I have bolded some of them for you.


  1. Load your P&G, Shortcuts and Cellfire Coupons before going out. (E coupons information)
  2. You can use a paper coupon with all the above e coupons for FREE products or even better savings
  3. You do not have to buy 2 of B1G1 items to get the sale price
  4. Most Kroger stores double coupons that are .50¢ or less

To find grocery deals for a store Southern Savers doesn’t cover check out the grocery gathering at BeCentsAble.

    • Christina A

      There are $1/2 tear pad coupons floating about for the Philadelphia cream cheese. They were a rather dull blue with black ink found at Ingles on a big cardboard stand up with about a dozen other coupons about 6 weeks ago. Exp. 1/31.

    • Jenny you do a fab job, much less stuff to sort through than HCW.

    • By the way I was at Kroger and they have this Maybelline Pure foundation on sale for 3.12. Use your Maybelline coupons for 3 bucks and get it for 12 cents!

    • thanks for posting these!

    • Sienna

      I’ve been taking advantage of the Gerber Graduates catalina deal. They are on sale for $2-$2.50 ea. and when you spend $10, you get $2 back. Not free, but with the various Qs that I’ve gotten from Gerber lately, it’s a pretty good deal. Goes until 2/1. Thanks for all your hard work with the deals.

    • Vaishali

      Thank you for posting this.I looked up the comforts packages at my local Kroger but couldnt find the coupon.Is it area specific?I stay at Atlanta.

    • Jenny

      I don’t know what areas are getting the $3 peelie coupons. I know every pack in my local store(SC) has them on there.

    • i was wondering, can i use a paper coupon, a shortcut$, and cellfire all on the same 1 item???

    • Julieann

      Thanks so much for all the work you do. You are the only person I have found that covers the stores I shop at and goes the extra mile like walking the store! I saw the items listed on the ad and had my coupons ready for them, but I had no idea that most of these other items were included until I read your post. Thanks again….we love you!

    • Jenny

      You can only use 1 e coupon per item. So if you want to use 2 e coupons you would have to buy 2 items. The computer will automatically use the highest value e coupon that is saved to your card if you have more than one e coupon for a certain product.

    • heather

      Hey Jenny,
      I did not see all of the items in our sales flyer that is on your list??? Is this regional, or did they mark some additional items in the store to be included in the Mega sale, and just didn’t add them to the flyer? Also, if they are not in the flyer, (but are on your list) will there be signage at the store that suggests the items are included??

    • heather

      Thanks!!!! I am so confused, and this will be my first Kroger’s trip!!

    • Jenny

      Heather- There is a lot in the store that is not advertised for the mega deal. My ad is for the Southeast region so if you are in this region you will find that this list should be exactly what is on sale in your stores too.

      Each item has a special (large) tag that says it is part of the promotion so you can’t miss it when you are shopping.

    • heather

      Thanks Jenny!! I appreciate all of your help =) I am heading over to get my card after I get off work at 5… I am hoping that I can find a dispenser for the cheese coupons

    • Jennifer C.

      Heather, just in case your Kroger has run out of the Kraft 2% cheese coupons, like mine has, try your Food Lion store. They had the same coupon machine. I think one of our Bi-Lo’s had one as well.

    • so can i use a paper coupon, shortcut$, and cellfire

    • Julieann

      Nope just a paper coupon and either shortcuts OR cellfire. You can’t use both e-coupons on one item.

    • Kelly


      – For every two French’s Yellow Mustards that I purchased today it produced a $1.00 Catalina.

      – There were a few Crest Toothpaste’s on clearance at my Kroger today ($1.29 and $1.99 clearance). I purchased 4 of them and then used the $1.50 coupon and they ended up being free plus overage because of the eSaver coupons loaded on my Kroger card (Two $1.50 off Crest eCoupons).

    • Marie

      How is the Cottonelle free? I’m missing something.

    • Chelssya

      Just wanted to share my experience with multiple e coupons for 1 item. Last week I bought Huggies and had a Shortcuts coupon for $1.50 and a Cellfire coupon for $1. Only the Cellfire coupon was deducted. I’m unclear how this is supposed to work. I thought maybe it was just random as to which coupon was selected.

    • Kathy

      Can you tell me if you don’t load the Cellfire Coupons to your phone…will it come off if you use your Kroger card?

    • Kristina

      can you buy 4 or 5 of the same items? I have several mustard coupons. I figured I could provide them to a shelter and to family. Thanks…

    • Jenny

      Yes you can! The only problem might be if you had 4 or 5 printables to use on that same item. the Kroger’s around me are starting to make funny little rules (that change daily) about how many of the same printable coupon you are allowed.

    • Amy

      Holy Cow!! I printed off your blog, the printables you recommended, and cut out some from Sunday ads, and headed to the store. I have a picture on my blog of what I got for 4.65!!!! Thank you for doing all the hard work, because I NEVER do this good! (My total savings was 16.38!)

    • Tonya

      Thank you.I live in Walterboro,SC(which is so small you blink and you have missed it).We don’t have a Kroger,but there is one a few miles away(as in 40),but it would be worth it for like once a month shopping.Now that I have found you,I can do that:)Thank you for all your hard work,it is greatly appreciated.

    • Jamie

      What do you mean by **the .75/1 rang up as free item coupons for me last week** on the kraft cheese?

    • Sarah W

      I found those Kraft coupons at my Tom Thumb (I am in Dallas/ Fort Worth) and they rang up as “free item” coupons too. The cashier just scanned them and then started typing in 1.49 for each and so all the cheese was free. I’ve now been “shopping” at Tom Thumb twice today staking the blinkie machine for more coupons and have done the deal at Kroger a couple of times. :)

    • When I did my Kroger shopping last night, I ran across two catalina deals that should make the Mega event even better. The first was a Nature Valley catalina that begins today 1/30 and ends on 2/22.
      Buy 3 get 1.50
      Buy 4 get 2.50
      Buy 5 get 3.50 (makes them .30 ea with Q)

      The other great deal was a $2.00 catalina when you purchase 4 bags of the Armour meatballs (makes them .94 ea). I posted some ideas for using all those meatballs on my blog.

    • tracy

      The .75 Kraft coupon worked as a freebie for me too. I got 4 8 oz. bags of shredded cheese and 5 12 oz. packs of sliced American cheese for FREE! It’s wonderful, but I wonder why the coupons are working that way? Anyone know?

    • Michelle

      Marie – I just wanted to respond to your Cottonelle question – I got it free this past week! The 4-packs are (every day price) 99 cents – use a 50 cent off coupon and it’s doubled – so the pack is free.

    • Tanja

      I just thought I would let you know that when I went to Kroger this past Tuesday (2/17) my shortcuts e-coupon did NOT work with the paper coupon for the Yoplait Go-gurt. I do not know if ALL the e-coupons are going to quit working w/ the paper or if it is just short cuts. Just thought I would give you all a heads up. I did check when I got home to make sure that it was still on my account and it is still there, waiting to be redeemed.
