    • Becca

      thx jenny it is back!!!

    • Brenda

      Does anyone know if the kroger dips & sour cream coupon will work on cottage cheese?

    • Lynn

      I don’t remember which Kroger My Magazine mailer it came in, but there’s a coupon for $2 off three 12-packs of Coca-Cola products that’s good through 5/10.

    • Julieann

      Thanks. The ad I have from http://midatlantic.inserts2online.com/customer_Frame.jsp?divID=029&drpStoreID=00401 states 4 for $4 when you buy in a single transaction, otherwise $1.25/ea. I couldn’t even find it in my paper, but it’s online for my store (in SW VA). Maybe this will help someone??

    • Min


      In my Sunday paper this week, I had a set of coupons that included a Kroger coupon for 50 cents off Kroger jam. I do not know if it doubles, but it would be at least 50 cents off Kroger preserves.

      I live in Atlanta so it might just be local but a lot of the coupons match up with the sale this week.


    • John

      HEY!! My Kroger in Aiken, SC will not allow me to use my cellfire coupon and my MFC at the same time. Went in yesterday and tried to buy Huggies and they would not allow me to use both. Was very upset? Is this how this is suppose to work? They said one coupon per item.

    • Amy

      Hey John – (I’m in Aiken, too)
      That must be new – at least 2 weeks ago, I was able to use both. Was it management or a cashier? That is a little frustrating. I’m starting to prefer Publix; I can usually do better there anyways, even without cellfire/shortcuts. I hope this gets worked out!

    • Tracey

      Around Super Bowl time there was a display in my grocery store with a Kraft recipe & coupon booklet. It had a $1 off Coke 3 pk, $1 off 2 Ritz products, & $1 off 2 Kraft cheese products and a few others that I’ve already used. If you had these you could get use them on the Coke, Ritz, and Kraft cheese this week.

    • mel

      how do you get the kroger my magazine?

    • Becca

      The Kraft saver that I have was from Publix. It may be a publix coupon, not a manuf. coupon. Check that before using. It was in a display at the entrance of my Publix.

    • Joon

      Thanks for the info! I have always shopped at my hometown Kroger and just recently found out that the Kroger 1 town over doubles coupons up to a dollar…that will give me a few of these items for free!

    • Kristie

      Milk at Sam’s Club is always $2.19 a gallon.

    • beth

      Does anyone know if there is a site similar to southern savers for the Detroit, Michigan area?

    • Don’t forget there’s also a catalina deal that just started March 6th for Kraft Cheese (6 oz. or larger, chunk, slices, cracker cuts, cubes, crumbles and shredded) but this week has been the best week to buy….

      Buy 2 and get $1 ONYO
      Buy 3 and get $2 ONYO
      Buy 4 or more and get $3 ONYO

      This runs till March 29th

    • Lori

      Do you know if a printed coupon for Pillsbury Cinnnamon rolls will triple at the register even if it has DO NOT DOUBLE OR TRIPLE written at the top of it?

      • Jenny

        As long as the coupons bar code starts with a 5 it should automatically triple or double. Ive heard of some cashiers manually overriding the automatic part but most do not. The computer looks for the 5 and if the coupon value is within the doubling/tripling range and does it.

    • April

      I found $1.00 off coupons for 12 pack coke products on the my coke rewards website. Each coupon cost you 35 pts.

    • If you are in Texas, our ad just started today and our pillsbury catalina is still going. So, you can get the pillsbury crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, and grands for cheap or free and then generate catalinas. I did it this morning. It doesn’t show on the shelf that the small containers will produce the cats, but they do. :)

    • Cici

      I cannot find the huggies coupons on the printable link or the cellfire…any idea?

    • Sandra E

      Kroger is having an 88 cents sale this weekend… check it out!!

      • Jenny

        I’ve included the items in the 88 cent sale that were actually good prices in the list above. Many of Kroger’s advertised prices are actually not great sales though so be careful.

    • Sandra E

      I have not been able to get the coke coupons to print…can anyone help? I keep getting things that say it has a virus or something… I lost one already and 35 of my coke points. :(

    • debbie

      The Quaker Life coupon is for the Maple & Brown sugar only.

    • Beth

      I cannot find the Huggies coupons when I click to print them.

      • Jenny

        The print limit has been reached on those coupons. sorry, I’ll fix the post.

    • Sarah

      I just got back from Kroger with a ton of great deals but here is an extra one for all:

      The deal for Quaker Instant Oatmeal at $2 per box with a $1/2 coupon gets you 2 boxes at $1 each. There is a website where you can print up a bunch if these. I used used 3 coupons without any problems. EXTRA: inside of specially marked boxes there are $8 of Quaker coupons – for instant cereal, regular cereal and bars. I am going back to Kroger with (4) $1/1 and rebuying Quaker Life at this week’s 4/$10 and get $4 back at register. Great way to restock your own pantry and the local food pantry as well at .50 per box

      Crest deal: $2.49 tube; $1.50 cellfire and a .50 cent from the P&G mailer = free toothpaste for the church food pantry

      Thanks and happy couponing…..by the way, check out the clearance items at the back of most Kroger stores – deals galore and you can use coupons on those as well.

    • David

      In comment #14 I bought 4 krafte cheeses and did not get a print out with the catalina. WHAT DOES ONYO MEAN?

      Thanks for the site!

      • Jenny

        ONYO means On Your Next Order.

        It is like learning a new language!

    • mel

      ok so I received a kroger my magazine :)but it was designated for my toddler. How do you get the one you refer to? Also, will Publix accept Bilo’s buy theirs gets ours?

      • Jenny

        To get the Kroger mailers just make sure your Kroger card has your address tied to it. You can do that on Kroger’s site by creating a “My Kroger” account.

        Publix accepting Bi-Lo’s Buy there’s get ours is tricky. You will probably have the cashiers say no to it. It is more like a promotion than a coupon. Bi-Lo has you print the coupon because it limits it and doesn’t allow you to use that coupon again with your Bi-Lo card. You can always try it though or ask customer service when you come in.

    • Grocery shopping has been low on my list of priorities this week. But I was still able to save 89% on my last trip. http://couponkatie.com/the-proof-saved-89-at-kroger-3-24-09/

    • mel

      thanks for all your help Jenny! Can you tell me how many papers you are purchasing to get coupons?

      • Jenny

        I get 3 inserts every week and then if there is a coupon that I love I will buy more of it from ebay or thecouponclippers.com

    • Holly

      Is anyone else getting the Kraft Catalina?
      I just bought 5 Kraft cheeses and nothing printed.

      • Jenny

        Kroger has started making their catalina deals regional only so it might not be in your region. There are some that even print just for one metro area like the Atlanta area will get their own catalina deals.

    • Julie

      FYI: My cashier in at the Kroger in Irmo, SC, told me today that they will only accept two of the same Internet printable (I was trying to use 4 $1/1 Life cereal coupons, and she would only let me use two). I was afraid that if I broke up my transaction, I wouldn’t get the $4 off for buying the 4 boxes. Does anyone know if you have to buy all 4 Quaker products in one transaction?

      Also, for the two printables she did let me use, they worked on the plain Life even though the coupon said for the Maple Brown Sugar (there were none of these left on the shelf!).

      • Jenny

        You do have to buy the 4 items at the same time to get the discount. Sorry.

    • Christie

      My Kroger (Atlanta) has B1G1 on Orville Redenbocher popcorn ($3.61). With the Cellfire $1 off 2, a $1.50 mailer coupon and 2 $.55 coupons from the ‘blinkie’ it was quite a deal.
