    • Melissa

      Jenny, in the 3/29 RP from the Atlanta paper the Suave deodorant coupon was .50/1.

    • Whitney

      There is a soft soap coupon in the 3/29 SS ad for .35/1. Makes them .30.

    • tricia

      I’m curious. I was in Kroger and only the shortcuts pulled for the Huggies deal, not the cell fire, which was a higher amount. Should both e-coupons come off? Is there any way to choose which comes off or do you have to unload one so that only the preferred one comes off?

      • Jenny

        With the e coupons it will only pull one coupon per item so if you only bought one then the highest value coupon will come off. If they were the same value then the coupon that expires first will come off. Once the e coupon is loaded though it won’t come off until it expires.

    • Kim


      Also, Suave shampoo 15 oz is on sale for 88 cents. When you pair that with the coupon from 3/1 RP $1.75/3 you can get three shampoos for 89 cents or about 30 cents each. HTH! Thanks so much for all you do!

    • Hey, I linked up to you in my matchup!

    • jenny

      Just wondering the last few weeks at kroger haven’t been to exciting do they go through spurts of sales and then dry times i really low on frozen foods and was hoping for another 5 off 10 event.

    • Donna

      I didn’t have the Powerade coupons either. I was so excited to see it and now to be so disappointed! I wonder, like Julie, if it was just selected papers?

    • Alyssa

      Bisquick (40 oz., regular and heart-smart varieties) is on unadvertised sale for $3.05 at Kroger (I’m in ATL area). I used a $1 shortcuts Q with a .75 IP and got a good deal on one of my family’s staples…

    • Karen

      at my Kroger the Barilla Piccolini is on sale $4/3and I have the .50 coupons from a few weeks ago so it was free plus .25 overage!

    • Megan

      I am in Tennessee, but could not find the $8 mail in rebate for the miller lite. Is it part of the Kroger newspaper ad that came with Sunday’s paper or do I find it somewhere else? Thank you for the help!

      • Jenny

        The Beer rebate was in the Sunday Kroger ad in the section that usually has the refrigerated dairy items. If it’s not in your ad let me know and l’ll try to mail you one :)

    • jennifer

      Alyssa, thanks for the bisquick sale fyi! We have been out and I’ve been waiting for a sale!

    • There is a .50 off of a 4 pk of Angel Soft that came in my Red Plum mailer this week.

    • MiniMidgMom

      Could somebody please clarify for me: if I use a manufacturer’s coupon and an E coupon at Kroger’s for the Huggies, will they accept both?

    • I saw that several Johnson’s baby products are buy one and get $1 oyno cat printed out- the small baby oil bottles are $1.89, if you have a $1/1, $2/2 or $3/3 Johnson’s coupon (I know there are some out there) – this would make them free + overage after cat.

    • Lori

      Suave Shampoo or conditioner .88 stack with the Food Lion printable $1 off 2 Suave hair products and the $1 off 2 (RP 3/29) Makes them FREE plus .24 overage :)

    • deltagal

      I have a coupon question. When you have a coupon that is $1.00 off purchase of 2, can you purchase 2 AND use 2 coupons.

    • Kabba

      where were the coupons for the angel soft? I only see .50/1 for the 6pk? I was hoping to go today after I pick up my daughter but, cant seem to find that coupon?

    • Julie

      This may not help for this week but go to the Tyson website and email them to ask for coupons. I sent them a random message b/c I NEVER seem to catch any good Tyson coupons for products I actually buy, and they mailed me SIX .50/1 mfr coupons good for ANY of their items. That’ll double to a nice $1 off at Kroger.

    • Rebecca

      Just thought I would share that I tried to use the $1 off any bath and body coupon for Huggies on the wipes at Kroger, but their register would not accept the coupons when purchasing the wipes. The cahsier was very nice about it and said she wished it would work for me, but the register wouldn’t accept them. Too bad, because it would have meade them free and we go through the wipes here with my kids.

    • Julie

      FINALLY got to head over after work today. If you have extras of the $1.00 of any McCormick spice blend coupon, the Grillmates are still $1.00 = FREE. Also, I had a $.50 e-coupon for any El Paso product so I grabbed a $0.75 pkg of Fajita seasoning = FREE plus overage. AND, the Ronzoni Smart Taste is on unadvertised sale for $1.59; apply $1.00 of any Smart Taste product (exp 7/31/09, either RP or SS) and it’s $0.59 which beats even Kroger brand.

    • Marci

      I heard recently that Kroger is now accepting competitor coupons. Anyone have any info on this? I know I recently bought something there and had a manufacturer’s coupon that said CVS on it, and the cashier keyed it in as a “competitor’s coupon”. Thanks!!

    • meg

      I have used the $.50 off wipes coupon on the $.99 cent 40-count wipe package even though the coupon says it is for the 64 count and higher. It worked on two separate visits to my local kroger, and will go back tomorrow to use the last two coupons I have.

    • Cecilia

      Yeah I asked a cashier when checking out a week or so ago if they took Publix coupons as a competitor and she said they were just not advertising it. And she as able to take the coupon even though it didn’t have a barcode just the LU#.I have done this twice so far, I went through self check out, I don’t know if that matters.
