    • Hi Jenny! I was going to email you to ask your opinion on the UPromise coupons. I thought they worked like cellfire/shortcuts, so I was really puzzled at the checkout when they didn’t come off. When I checked further, I found it was just that I was confused about how they work. Now I see you have them listed – what do you think?

    • Lisa

      Thanks for the list!!! I recently was told about this site, and I love it!!! Just wanted to mention that cellfire has a huggies q for $3 off 2 packages. Thanks!

    • Shannon

      Question about Cellfire.. if you buy more than one will the amount come off each one you buy? As with the Kroger buy 10 deal

    • Alisha

      You can go to http://www.therealmealdeal.com/ for the form to get $5 in coupons if you buy 5 of several participating products. The Hungry Man dinners are included. Some of the others might be on sale as well. You must send in receipt.

    • Jenny

      U promise coupons don’t come off at the register it just puts that amount into your upromise account. They are great though! Most items you buy you only get 5 or 10 cents from buying it put into your account so to have purchases each month that will put $2 each in there is great in comparison.

      With cellfire, you only get the amount off of one item. If you had a coupon from cellfire and shortcuts for the same item then you could buy 2 and get it off of both items.

    • Lela

      There is a $1 Gorton’s Grilled Shrimp “or any other Gorton’s Shrimp product” that worked on the Shrimp Fried Rice Bowls that are part of the buy 10 promotion. After promotion and coupon makes it $1.49 ea.

    • Min

      There is a $1 dollar off coupon for Thomas’s English Muffins in the March All For You. That would make them cost of 50 cents.

    • SlimJim

      Will Kroger accept the Rite aid $5 off $25 printable coupon ?

    • I was highly dissapointed that I didn’t find any additional items in the buy 10 save $10 frozen deal!! :o( I might have to pass on this, although I’d love a few of the items!

      All my Gorton’s q’s were for shrimp and the shrimp bowls were the only shrimp items I saw included. However, my store didn’t have but one other shrimp item aside from bowls (fried butterfly shrimp which wasn’t marked as included!)

      I don’t remember seeing Green Giant as part of the deal (but I may have missed it!), but all the others you put * by definitely were!

      BTW, I’m finding your site is the BEST for lots of store deals because the prices/sales are the most consistent with what I find in our stores in TN!! Love not getting confused so much any more when I go to the store and prices are way off!!

    • Brenda

      Hi Jenny, I read the fine print on the Hungry Man $5 rebate and you only save $1 wyb 5. The title is misleading because it says “Buy 5 items get $5 in savings”. There is a limit (5) $1 coupons per houshold so this is where they are saying you can save $5 total. Actually requires you to purchse 25 items to save the $5.

    • jen

      Great site…thanks! Does Kroger accept Walgreens or Rite Aid store coupons. I recently moved to Ohio from Utah and I know that Albertson’s in Utah would accept them. Just thought you might know the answer…thanks!

    • Thanks for your hard work Jenny. In our region, North Carolina, they are also running a sale on Hormel Products. Purchase $25 in featured products and receive $5 at checkout. I’ve posted the items and corresponding coupons on my blog in case any of your readers are in this region. Thanks again for all your hard work.

    • Hi, I read a article in a german newspaper over your blog. You can read it under this link: http://www.ftd.de/technik/medien_internet/:Coupon-Clipping-Sparen-mit-Mutti/481379.html
      I find, you does a very good job with your blog. I hope, i will become once day also so many visitors.

      Many greetings from Germany from Jürgen

      Nice to read about you!!!

    • Noora

      Our flyer also showed that you can get a $25 credit for groceries loaded onto your Kroger Plus card for transferring a prescreption to Kroger. One per household, through the end of the month.

    • Once again from good old Germany, Sorry about my bad English. I hope, you can unterstand my message?!


    • Vicki Large

      Am I missing something here in AL? No Freschetta coupons in SS.
      How about you guys?

    • Ashley

      hey! I am new to this but just wanted to share that at my Kroger, Cottonelle regular 4 pk is on closeout for 79 cents

    • Sheila

      I hope that they don’t stop selling Cottonelle. I’m a new Kroger shopper and I don’t have nearly enough paper yet.

    • MelRae

      Hey Jenny! You have Aquafresh coupons from SS 2/15….but there were no inserts that day. I sooo want to get some Aquafresh for kids…I love the pump style.

    • Melissa

      Does Kroger take other store’s coupons. Example, printed the Target coupons offline, will Kroger take those?

    • Jenny

      Kroger will not take any competitor coupons, only Publix.

      Melissa – I fixed the Aquafresh (fun that I know who you are)

    • Brenda

      JEN – while Kroger does not accept competitor coupons, the Kroger stores in Ohio double all coupons $.99 or less and generally even the ones that say “do not double”. I don’t recall it ever being less since I started couponing. From what I’ve been reading on this site, their Kroger stores only double the $.50 coupons or less. Hope you are enjoying your move to Ohio!

    • Catherine

      Is anyone else finding that their local Kroger will not accept internet coupons? Mine in Kennesaw, GA tells me that they can’t take them, which is almost enough to drive me to Publix!! Is this a store-by-store policy or something I should take up with this store’s management as a breach of company policy? Help!

    • Jenny

      It is a breach of policy. Kroger offers the same coupons.com printable coupons on their corporate website so they definitely accept these coupons. You need to take this to the manager and then higher if need be and get them straightened out.

    • Jilana Bond

      I’m a little frustrated. I went to Kroger today and I baught 6 packs of toaster strudels. I had six coupons which was great but the coupon on my kroger card from cellfire only counted as one. I actually baught more than one of everything and it was exactly the same, it only counted for one. Is this they way it is suppose to be? I guess I learned my lesson because I lost money thinking it was going to count for everytime I bought an item. Any advise?

    • Jenny

      Sorry Jilana they e coupons only count as one coupon so you got it off of one of the items but that’s it. If it helps any the .79 cents a box you paid for the others one’s is still a great price.

    • Heather

      Catherine, I’m in Kennesaw too and I have no problem with any of my coupons, including printables at the Kroger on Cobb Parkway. I think it’s technically in Acworth at the corner of Nance Road.

    • Laura

      I have a question about the cellfire/shortcut coupons. Some of them overlap between sites, for example, the yoplait coupon and the toaster struedel coupon. Do they each get taken off for one item? Or will only one show up period? In that same topic, there are multiple coupons for Huggies saved to my card. $3/2, $1.50, and $1. Which one(s) will get used?

    • Jenny

      Laura the e coupon that is the highest amount will be used first and then if they are the same amount it will use the e coupon that expires first. It will only use one e coupon per item you buy though. If you bought more than one item it would use both e coupons that were stored.

    • Sarah

      I noticed that many of the items Kroger puts on sale in their flyer are still on sale the next week although not mentioned in the next week’s flyer. Is there anyway to tell how long that item will actually be on sale?

    • Sara B.

      My Kroger had a problem tonight with the Comfort Diaper coupons.
      The cashier was an old man, he was rather slow and had a hard time doing much of anything.

      I had 4 of the coupons mixed with some leftover Catalina’s for $3 from the Pillsbury deal last week. He couldn’t ring them all up together and made me do 4 seperate transactions. The diapers came out to 14c a pack!!
      Not to shabby!!

      To anyone without leftover Catalina’s they would be about $3.

    • Jamie

      It’s because the coupon states only one per customer and the computer will not take them unless they have a manager override.

    • Priscilla

      Today I purchased one box of Hamburger Helper but the coupon that was downloaded from Cellfire to my Kroger card was not deducted. When I got home I emailed Cellfire and after entering info about my purchase they emailed me a $ .50 coupon to use at the store on any purchase. That was the first time I had a problem with Cellfire but they took care of it immediately.

    • dianr

      I just sent a “shame on you” email to Pinnacle Foods for that “realmealdeal.com” scam, telling them that I refuse to buy any of their products now because of their blatant misrepresentation. I encourage you all to email them too at http://www.pinnaclefoodscorp.com/contactpinnacle/contactUs.asp?commentBrandName=pinnacle

      Let our voices be heard!!!

    • Julie

      The Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes – I printed 2 coupons for .40/1 and it says on the coupon NOT to double. I’m about to leave to go to the store so I am curious if it will double or not. I also have the cellfire e-coupon so doubling would make it free… I’ll let you know how it goes.

    • Kabba

      I had a question as well about the FRESCHETTA coupons as well…I have looked several times and I dont have any??
      Another question is, does any one know if you can use REDBARON for freshcetta piza since they are the same company?

    • marcey

      How do you get the $25 credit for new or transferred prescriptions added to your kroger plus card? Someone mentioned it in an earlier comment, but no details.

    • Mandy

      I am able to select coupons on Cellfire, but then when I click on “get coupons” I get a small screen with each coupon I selected listed with a “don’t save this coupon” box, but no box to “save” so when I click on the X to get out it says I haven’t saved coupons….any advice on what I am suppose to do? Thanks in advance.

    • Sarah

      Have you actually used the $3 and $5 Huggies for natural fit or gentle care to purchase the regular Huggies? Did it go through?

    • Jill

      I have a question on the Toaster Struedel. How are you coming up with the each price of $.29 and .79. I’m figuring 1.29 or .79. Is there something I’m missing?


    • Jenny

      It’s price before the rebate sale is $1.99

      -.50/1 E coupon
      -.35/1 Paper coupon (doubled -.70/1)

      -.50/1 Instant store sale discount wyb 10 items

      Total -$1.70 off

    • Diane

      re: therealmealdeal.com

      Here’s the response I received from the company about the rebate:

      “We apologize if the rules of this promotion were unclear. However, youwill need to purchase five of the participating frozen products(Hungry-Man, Mrs. Paul’s, Van de Kamp’s, Duncan Hines Oven Ready, AuntJemima, or Lender’s Bagel’s) between 3/1/09 and 3/31/09 to participate inthe promotion.

      Once you mail in the required information you will receive a $1.00 savingscoupons FOR EACH product that was purchased (up to $5.00). Since you needto purchase 5 of the above mentioned products in order to participate, youwill receive a total of $5.00 in savings ($1.00 coupon for each productpurchased).”

      So… even though their rebate form states makes it sound like you really have to purchase 25 items to get $5, it really is $5 rebate for just 5 items. I still plan on attaching the email copy to my rebate form just to make sure I get the money back.
