    • Sarah

      Thanks so much for all of your hard work, Jenny! Here in the Nashville area, the 50% off sale will be on Friday, July 31st, according to the ad. Just a tip for any other middle Tennesseans out there :)

    • Melissa

      On the P&G promo, if you have coupons that cover the cost of your non-P&G items, will the $4 end up going toward the P&G items or will you lose it? (I’m planning a small-ish trip this week.) I wasn’t sure how that would work. Thank you so much for your help!

      • Jenny

        It does say $4 off the rest of your purchase so I would add in a gallon of milk or something just to be safe.

    • Jen

      Is there a limit to how many 4 off 4 items you can do per transaction?

    • Veronica

      OK, before I go shop, is this correct? In order for this to work, you need to have either 4 P&G items, 8 P&G items, 12 P&G items, or so forth plus your “other” items that the $4 is counting off on? For instance, you need sets of 4 for the $4 to come off, you can purchase 6 but the $4 will only come off once in this scenario, right? In order for $4 to come off twice, you need 8 items. Is this correct?
      Thanks! I’m still new at all this couponing but I’m hooked!

    • Lori

      U got it! 4=$4 off 8=$8 off 6=$4 off! remember to have some other things on ur list as well! hope that helps :)

    • Lynn

      I didn’t know where to put this but in the Aug/09 issue of GQ they have a coupon for a free bottle of Irish Spring shower wash. So if the hubs or SO gets this, it’s a great find. It expires sometime in Sept, so I’m going to try and wait for a BOGOF sale or CVS deal.


    • Stephanie

      Central Kentucky is also Friday, July 31 for the 50% off sales.

      There was nothing that I saw in the ad about a limit to the number of times that you can do it. On the last Mega Event (which was 10 participating items to get the discount), there was no limit listed on the ad, and I did it 3 times. I asked at Customer Service before I tried it and she told me that if it did not work automatically she would fix it. It worked automatically, but if this promotion does not work, I would take the ad to Customer Service and ask them to correct it. This should be a good week.

    • Amy

      Do you know what the base price will be on the Kellogg’s products? Like the HUGE boxes of cereal with the $5 off q’s inside were $1.99 Saturday. ???

    • bumble bee the 2.5oz packs are .99

      use the $1.00 Bumble Bee coupon 6/14 (only in some papers/free atlanta papers they throw in yards)

      They will have to force the coupon since Kroger computers don’t do overage typically.

    • Samantha

      My weekly sales flier (issued on Sunday, May 26) doesn’t say anything about specials on Thursday, May 30….

      Can these deals ONLY be had on Thursday? I’m afraid if I wait until Thursday the good stuff will be sold out which is typical of Kroger in my area.

      Will someone please explain this “Thursday Only” sale?

    • Laura B

      Do you have to have at least $4 in non proctor and gamble items to get your $4 off? If I bought 4 P&G items and a $1 loaf of bread, would I still get the $4 off? Its a little confusing they way they are doing this promotion.

    • Andrea

      I’m a little confused on the Thursday only part as well. Where on the list does this end is it only for the 3 50% off deals? The 10 for 10 stuff is all week…correct?


    • Jennifer

      Good Morning Jenny,

      I just want to thank you for all that you do!!!!I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.My husband and myself have been laid off so money is very tight. I have a question about the rebate coupons you have been talking about (i.e.-Bounty, Charmin,Secret,Etc.) how do I go about getting these?

      Also I wanted to pass something on that I have recently learned. I have the newspaper delivered to my home daily. Sunday’s paper of course is my fav. I talked to my carrier and found out that she always has coupon packs left over after filling all the papers. I asked her what she did w/them and she throws them away. After talking to her for a minute Iasked her if she could give me extra coupon packets. She was more than happy to….So this past Sunday I received my regular paper along with a stack of other coupons. Needless to say I have numerous coupons and what I can’t use or don’t I pass along to friends or recycle. Thanks again Jenny!!!!!

    • jennifer

      There is a p&G esaver crest coupon.

    • Jessica

      this is my VERY FIRST WEEK and i am kindda lost on some of the lingo….ill post one example for now and maybe someone can help me with figuring out what i do.

      Herbal Essences Hair Care $1.99 ea
      -$1 off Herbal Essences Hair Care PG 7/05
      Free Styler wyb any Shampoo or Conditioner RP 7/26
      -$1 off Herbal Essences PG e coupon
      (buy styler and other item use both paper coupons and e coupon makes both FREE)

      i just got my first newspapers yesterday and am trying to put together a grocery list for my family this week and i am thinking am doing something wrong. can someone walk me thru what i do the next couple weeks…i understand that i will have to wait until i have atleast a months worth of coupons for this to really start to see a change. i am ok with doing my shopping at more then one place if it means i get more of what my family uses for less.
      THANKS SO MUCH for anyone that can help me out.

    • My sales flyer in Knoxville, TN said Thursday 7/30 is the day for the 50% off sale. Not sure if all East TN is that day but I would think it would be.

    • laura b, i agree. to not have any confusion at the register, i did 2 trans and made sure to have at least $4 in non-pg products before qs. each trans was around $4 each oop.

    • AngthecouponNERD

      Kellogg’s, Keebler and Eggo is the Thursday only part?

      Clipping furiously to get the free Crest and Listerine!

    • Blakely

      Does anyone know the limit on the P&G deal in SC? 3 times?

    • Stacie

      Here in Christiansburg, VA, the Tyson boneless-skinless chicken breasts are on sale for $1.79 per pound. If you can find a small package of just a pound or maybe a pound and half and use the $1 off coupons, it’s a great deal! I’m going to try to go today and stock up on some chicken! Great week to finally be able to use my new deep freezer!

      Quick question……..
      If I go and buy something that has an ecoupon connected, does that work only once, or does it stay on your card and you can use it over and over until it expires?

    • Alright- this promotion is a real pain in the toosh. You have to buy at least $4 in non-p&g products to get the $4/P&G , so the prices they list are not really accurate since if you only buy P&G products, the $4 will NOT come off the total (I did this today). I ended up spending $4 more than I had hoped to spend b/c I had to buy something worth $4 without coupons to use the $4 off P&G.

      Anyway. Kroger- you’re misleading us.

    • Bryan

      Yeah, the ad states that:

      “$4 savings is on the non-Proter and Gamble products in your purchase. All purchases must be made in a single transaction.”

      Kroger is full of tricks every week. They won’t let you get a “great” deal. I only go there for the one item every other week that is worth it. Kroger knows what you’re thinking and they are sure to prevent it! They will never offer a “great” deal on purpose.

      The 10 item mix and match stuff drives me crazy. Publix is the only way to go…

      Any shopping I might have done at Kroger has now been replaced by WalMart and if the prices are reasonable I buy them at Publix.


    • is the crest on sale 10/$10 not part of the P&G promotion?

      • Jenny


        That tube of Crest is not part of the P&G sale.

    • Callina

      So, to be clear, all of what was just listed was for Thursday only?

    • Jen

      I have a question. When I went to Kroger they only had tags on a few of the herbal essences. Is it all the herbal essence shampoos, conditioners, or stylers or just some of them. The Aussie ones had no tags at all.

    • Teresa

      the link for the hebrew national franks coupon is saying no longer available message is “Sorry, this offer has expired”
      has anyone else tried this?

    • Honey

      Jen with the question about Aussie haircare, my Kroger did not have tags on Aussie either, but it worked-just like my ad said. Just watch it and if it doesn’t come off your total take it to customer service. When things ring up incorrectly my Kroger gives you the product AND your money back! I’m in Knoxville, TN and my sale on Kelloggs is on Thursday.

    • Jessica, maybe be more specific with your questions… or one question at a time? Not sure what you’re asking, but it WILL take a couple of weeks of compiling coupons before you will be able to use quite a few to get real bargains. Check out this link. Go down to the Coupon Lingo section.


    • Maegan

      I don’t know if this is a dumb question, but my ad only shows a few P&G products listed. How do you guys know the other products (Head&Shoulders, Pampers jumbo pack, etc.) are eligible? Thank you for serving, Maegan

      • Jenny


        I go to Kroger every Sunday and get all the items for sales that are unadvertised. I always try to make the list as complete as possible for you.

    • Colleen

      I am in the Mid Tn (Nashville area). Does anyone know if the one day sale ( July 31st here) includes the Barilla pasta listed here? It’s not in my flier… also, does “entire line” include barilla plus? If Barilla Plus is on sale for $1, that would be worth a trip to Kroger. I agree with some others that Kroger is not the cheapest or nicest place to shop but I will go every now and then when I can work some deals.
      Thanks! Colleen

    • Lori

      is the fuel for school only at Publix? the 50% sale works great for that if it works at Kroger too :)

    • Andrea

      The Aussie hair products are $2.99 at my store :(

    • Is there a Kroger in Charleston SC? I ran into a guy at HT who insisted that he just shopped at one in Goose Creek but I thought he was mistaken. I couldn’t find a listing for one in the phone book. Could he just be woozy from the ink fumes from his printer as he is furiously printing coupons? On that note, it is delightful to run into so many men who are serious couponers too.

    • tonya

      Just went and did the $4 off P&G deal. aussie wasn’t marked, but it worked. I also had 3 e-coupons, but none of them worked. Do you think it was because of the $4 deal? Can’t do both.??? I had another $3.50 off cascade, Herbal ess. and aussie. ???? I have emailed P&G, so we’ll see what happens. I’ll let you know.

      YOU ARE THE QUEEN!!!!!

    • Jenny


      Are you sure that they scanned your card right? This happened to me a while back, the card didn’t scan right so none of my ecoupons came off. I contacted Kroger and they credited my account.

      Also at my Kroger, there are some Old Spice deoderants price 2.19 before the $1 discount which would make it a money maker when you combine the ecoupon with the paper coupons.

    • Melissa

      I went to Kroger today and got 24 items and I saved $4 6 times, so it must not be a limit. I also did not get my Proctor and Gamble coupons taken off my receipt, I have emailed them as well. I agree with a few people above, the signs on items are very misleading. I consider myself a pretty smart shopper, but Kroger got the best of me today. The Tampax Pearl’s 20 count were clearly marked $2.99 with a big yellow sign on them. It led you to believe that you would then save $1 each when you purchased 4 of them. Well I bought 8 total and mine rang up for $3.99 each. I knew when I checked out my total was wrong but didn’t have time to check on things then. I am going to go back in tomorrow and reread the signs. If they are in fact $3.99 and then save $1, I will be returning most of what I bought today.

    • Jacob

      So I have 20 P&G items that I want. Which should give $20 off other non-P&G items (5*$4). Do I need to worry about the order items get scanned at check-out? At what point during the check-out will I see these $4 discount come across? Will is just be at the end? I have many printed and some ecoupons – will these be affected in any way?

    • Anna

      Yay, this looks like a great week at Kroger! Thanks for all your hard work. My husband, children, and I owe you big time, this has helped us survive!

      I’m going to try to answer some of the pile of questions being asked.

      Scan your card before items are rung up. E coupons often don’t “take” if you wait to scan it after the items have been rung.

      The B4Get$4 come off after ALL items have been rung, but BEFORE the paper q’s are subtracted. They are actually considered manufacturer coupons, even though they are automatic.

      There is no known limit to the # of groups of 4 participating items you can have in a single transaction. Mine contained 16 participating items for a total of $16 off tonight.

      The e-coupons come off immediately after the particular item has been rung, and show up directly under that item on the tape – NOT at the bottom like the paper q’s do. YMMV on that, if your store register is different.

      E-coupons apply to only one item. Once you use one, you’ve cashed it in. They have no affect on the B4G$4off.

      Many stores limit the # of internet printed q’s that can be used per customer per day.

      The tags are a bit crazy. They list the regular price on the left, and the big yellow area on the right shows the price AFTER the the B4G$4off. The receipt shows the price of the P&G items BEFORE the B4G$4 is taken off because the “discount” is given in groups of $4 after all items have been rung. The shelf price reflects the end cost if purchased in groups of 4. This actually works to your advantage if you are using B1G1 q’s, because the amount taken off will be the price of the item shown on the tape before the B4G$4 is applied. (Remember – the discount is actually being applied to your total bill, not the P&G in particular.)

      Once again, perhaps other stores have registers that are programmed differently, but the only non-P&G item in my cart was a $2.18 gallon of milk. The $16 came off.

      The ONLY part of the sale that is confined to Thursday only is the 50% off sale for the Kellogg’s, Keebler, and Eggos that Jenny listed at the top of the breakdown. Those are NOT P&G products, and not part of the B4G$4off sale. The P&G sale, the 10/$10, and the rest of the listing run the full week of the add.

      I have three very happy teenage daughters tonight. I took them out and let them have their choice of haircare and makeup products.

    • Jacob

      Thank you Mina – you answered all my questions

    • Here’s what I’m thinking of doing, then hoping it works!

      Buying 4 P&G products that will be free after the $4 off and with coupons/ecoupons.

      Buying at least $4 worth of other stuff that is also free after coupons. (The other crest/oral b toothbrushes/ listerine pockets)

      So…I’m thinking that my total should end up being $0 before tax, or at least pretty small, right?

      Since the $4 worth of stuff I buy after P&G will be free with the $4 promo discount and then my coupons for that stuff will take off what was left of the P&G products?

      Dang, way to make this confusing Kroger! That makse sense in my head, a little bit, but not sure if it will to anyone else! Or if it will work!

    • Maegan

      WOW, you’re so generous with your time Jenny! Thanks for answering my questions and thanks for the PGe Mina.

    • Jeanne

      Monday I went to Kroger and I saved a lot. I need to go back and buy some things again and I was trying to reload my ecoupons. However, when I went to do so all the ecoupons were still on my card. So will they be there when I go to buy again or should I just not depend on them being there?

    • Mina

      Stacey, that will work. You don’t even need the $4 in non-P&G. Stay aware that some of those combos (like the haircare items) actually create overage after the e-coupons, manufacturer q’s and P&G $4off. Most stores don’t allow overage in your final total, and some cashiers freak. You may avoid a possible hassle by making sure that whatever combo you use doesn’t bring your before tax total to below zero.

      Make sure you load the e-coupons well ahead of heading off to shop. They often take time to actually attach to your card.

      (Ack! I misspelled “ad” in my previous post.)

    • So, you don’t have to have at least $4 in other items to get the $4 off your P&G??

      I did this today and it worked beautifully!! My Kroger’s normally do allow for overage, even when it takes tax off, as long as you are still paying something!

      2 Aussie products (one shamp, one cond)
      2 Herbal Essence (one shamp, one styler)
      4 Listerine Pocket Packets (in case I had to buy $4 in things other than P&G but maybe I didn’t!)

      $2/2 Aussie products insert q
      $2/1 Auusie P&G esaver
      $1/1 Herbal Essence insert q
      Free styler when you buy shampoo or cond, insert q
      $1/1 Herbal Essence P&G esaver
      (4) $.50/1 Listerine Pocketpack insert q

      I try to use self check out whenever possible so I can see for my self that everything is working (goes too fast when I check out with a cashier!)

      My Listerine and Herbal Essence $1 q’s beeped, but the cashier put them through with no problem!

      My total ended up being $.26 AFTER tax!

      I was worried when I realized after I handed the cashier the free styler coupon that maybe it would take off more than the amount and I wouldn’t be able to use all my q’s so I scanned for something else to throw in if I needed too…turned out I didn’t, even though my actual total did go negative. I’ve discovered that sometimes Kroger allows that, so I guess it is YMMV!! I would’ve gladly thrown something else in if I had to!

    • Stacie

      When I went to Kroger yesterday, I had some $1 Johnson & Johnson coupons getting ready to expire on the 31st. So, I grabbed some J&J buddy bars at .99 ea. When I went to check out, the cashier refused my coupons because they exceeded the limit. So, where I thought I was going to get 9 for free (as I have with Wal-mart, Target and other stores, they just put the coupon through as however much the product is which is usually .97-.99 cent), I had to pay for them because there was a huge line behind me and I was trying to hurry home to fix supper, so I didn’t have the time for her to void and override the transaction. Is there any way I can fix this? I did get lots of other stuff and used lots of other coupons, but I could have saved another $8.91, that’s a lot of money when I could’ve gotten it free! I ended up getting $133.01 for $74.10, savings of 58.91 (this was my GROCERY shopping, not my bargain shopping). Anyway………. Should I call customer service or corprate about my problems? Can they even help? I’ve also had a terrible time with my e-coupons not working! Will they reimburse you for that? I have just recently started Krogering, I’m doing good, I feel, but I know I could do a lot better if I weren’t having so many problems. I’m half tempted to stop shopping there already, too much aggrivation! I still love my food lion!

    • Stacy

      -$1.50 off Stain Release August Parent’s Magazine
      is also in the August Good Housekeeping Mag. Its attached to the Gymboree coupon there too. :)

    • Anna

      I too still have trouble with my e-coupons at Kroger. I have been seriously couponing for a year now and twice they have failed to come off. I can’t definitively figure out why. The only thing that I can think of is that the two times the e-coupons didn’t come off I had loaded them to my card the day I shopped. However, today when I loaded the coupons it said on PG esaver that they would be ready to use in one hour. I even got a confirmation email saying they were ready to use so I thought surely they must be on there. I did my shopping, but they still didn’t come off so the cashier told me to go to customer service. I did and after 10 mins (with two screaming children) they finally figured out how to give me a refund (I did have to show my PG esaver print out). So it might be a good idea to take a print out of your e-coupons with you incase they don’t come off.

    • klonghall

      I shopped at Kroger today. (On Rockbridge Rd. in Stone Mountain/Lilburn GA) The cashier was super friendly and didn’t give me any problems with my big stack of coupons. My P&G ecoupons all worked fine. I spent $42 OOP, and saved a total of $61–between my coupons, the Kroger sales & P&G deal. Not a bad day at all! I did the P&G special with 12 items. I had both ecoupons & paper coupons for nearly all of them. Most of my coupons were set to expire on 7/31, so it was nice to get the savings in the nick of time!

    • Teresa

      Need help understanding sales tax, at Krogers I was charged tax on the grand total before any coupons, even the p&g items were taxed before the $4.00 off 4. Is this correct? (I’m in knoxville TN)
      thanks for any help!

      • Jenny


        Sadly the government will always want their money first so you are usually taxed on the full value before coupons.

    • Katfarmer

      I went to a different Kroger the other day and found Softsoap on the shelves for $1.59 but also in the back of the store in the 10 for $10 baskets. So, I used my 3 $1 coupons and got the 3 Softsoaps free.

    • Jennifer

      Thanks! I had my best week ever for grocery shopping. I finally got my grocery bill under $100 which has been my goal. Not to mention all of the shampoo and things I got for free (plus some overage)!! I got $12 off with the PG deal. Saved more than $60 between that, coupons, ecoupons and Kroger card. I appreciate all of your hard work on this site. I never would have the patience to do anything close to this myself!

    • lucky

      hello i dont see the one day sale where kellogs item is 50% off in my ad online i live near houston is that true that this sale is not in houston or is it available in their printed flyer but not online help me please

    • Amy

      Don’t forget about the Kellogg’s promo on Thursday!!

    • Elaine

      I tried to redeem the Earth’s Best baby food coupon and it said offer expired as well.

    • DeAnn

      Can we use the Food Lion coupon for Tide $2/1 at Kroger this week?

    • Michelle

      Teresa said, “Need help understanding sales tax, at Krogers I was charged tax on the grand total before any coupons, even the p&g items were taxed before the $4.00 off 4. Is this correct? (I’m in knoxville TN)
      thanks for any help!”

      Unfortunately that is correct. They absolutely kill us on taxes in this state since we don’t have a state income tax. You will always pay taxes on full price before coupons on non-food items. Now I am not sure on food items but non-food yes. :(

    • I am so excited. I just got back from Krogers from buy all my Kellogg items. I spent 25.71 and save 51.97. This included one gallon of milk.

    • I just got back from my Kroger in Cumming, GA. By the Pharmacy there was a display of some of the Keebler and Sunshine products included in the sale. There were extra coupon booklets on the side from the manufacturer that had a rebate form and more coupons that end up giving you more free or almost free items just for buying the Kellog’s items that you are already buying. I took two and went around the store gathering up my free stuff before checkout. (milk, Sprite, store brand coffee, store brand bread, Ocean Spray juice, fresh fruit,bottled water,etc.)I spent $76.80 and saved $125.76. Good luck!

    • Also, I forgot to mention that bottles of Coke had a buy two get one free coupon on them. They are good on any Coke product so you can use them with the Sprite coupon from the in-store Kellog coupons I mentioned above and get three bottles of Sprite for $0.50.

    • Amy

      I am thrilled with my Fuel for School rebate purchases .. spent $16.08 for 14 items plus two loaves of bread and a gallon of milk! Saved 70% .. not including the $10 rebate coming back!! YEAH!! THANKS JENNY!

    • El Monterey has a new frozen product called Tornadoes in the frozen Mexican Food area that has a Try Me Free Rebate Sticker on it. Just be sure to get enough receipts printed for both the Kellog’s and this one.

    • Got 8 P&G products, and the $8 came off no problem. I also had no problem with my Old Spice, Cascade, or Olay e-coups but the Herbal Essence e-coup did not come off. I’m wondering if it’s b/c I used the Buy 1 HE product, Get FREE styler paper coupon…?

      I also bought a few other items including clearanced meat but I was going to do that anyway (Manager’s special section had tons of Bob Evans breakfast sausage for $1.19 with $0.55 peelies!). Could not find the $1 Mentos and the Listerine packs were out. Anyway, not complaining too much; spent $17.71, and saved over 70%.

    • Sherri

      Using your guide, I just returned from my trip and got lots of deals. I don’t know if anyone else mentioned it, but Kellogg’s poptarts are also a part of the 50% off sale and if you use the 0.55/one coupon found in RP 6/07, you get a box that’s normally $3.60 for $1.25.

      Also, most of the one-day sale items qualify for the Fuel for School rebate. I bought 10 items and will submit for the $10 rebate, which is a really good deal!

      I love this website!

    • Larissa

      Just went to Kroger in Carrollton, GA. No problems with any of my coupons. I made 75 cents off the Crest!! Plenty of in-stock merchandise available.

    • Tanya

      Went to Kroger in Cumming, Ga. Spent $140 (had not been in two weeks) but saved $113. Did the P&G deal 3X, got $12 off. Thank you!

    • Teresa

      Thanks Jenny and Michelle for answering my question, still getting amazing deals even with the taxes.
      Love this site!

    • Trice

      I was able to get 3 boxes of 8ct pop-tarts for a total of .23 using 3 $1 kelloggs cereal coupons!!! I wish this was longer.

    • erica

      Just got back from Kroger and had two transactions. The first one included the P&G deal which I did three times (12 items) as well as some juice, chef boyardee pasta, juice, 2 lbs chicken and a tyson skillet meal and had a total savings of 51.13 and an OOP of $17.40. My second transaction was all of the kelloggs/keebler items. I got 14 items total and had an OOP of $14.93 and a savings of $27.15. PLUS on the first order I have a rebate for the full price of the tyson skillet meal and the kelloggs fuel for school rebate on the second transaction.
      Total Kroger OOP= 32.33
      Total Kroger save= 78.28!!!!

    • Mina

      Great job, Erica!

      Kroger is killing me (in a good way) this week. I’ve made so many trips there to keep from having my transactions get messy and confusing. So far this week I’ve spent $44 on $332 worth “pre-savings”. That includes the P&G and the Fuel for School (after rebate calculated in), bnls/sknls chicken chests, milk, choc. milk, bread, 3 coffee, smoothies, soft drinks, ground chuck, carrots, and whipping cream.

      I was glad that I hadn’t bothered to use all my poptart q’s, even though they were close to expiring. (New ones are coming out on Sunday.) Twenty-five cents for a 12 pack after rebate is the best price I’ve seen them.

      It’s a good thing that I don’t have to go out of my way to shop there, because I still have to stop in at least one more time.

    • Mina

      Stacie #49, I don’t think having the coupons you wanted to use on the Buddy Bars rejected is worth complaining to either Customer Service or corporate about. Many stores refuse to take coupons that are above the value of the item because of problems they’ve had with fraud. Save your receipt and return the items if you only wanted them for free. If your q’s are valid for the bars, you can still use them at a store that will accept them.

      I think of it this way, just because we don’t gain something for free doesn’t mean we lost anything. Other opportunities will come along soon enough. J&J puts out lots of coupons. They frequently release new ones right after the the previous batch expires.

      It’s usually easier on both the customer and the store to just ask the cashier to void the unwanted items than it is to return them, even if taking off that many at once winds up requiring an override. That is ESPECIALLY true for refigerated or frozen items and fresh produce, because those can’t be returned to the shelves for safety reasons. It may be a bit embarrassing to have them voided, but it’s something the staff is used to.

      I hope your next trip is better for you. The Krogers that I know are all good stores to shop at.

    • Deb

      I agree about the Buddy Bars-I buy these all the time at my Kroger and they’ve never been an issue.

    • I didn’t find the Aussie as part of the P & G deals but otherwise I had a great trip! Feel free to see what I got!

    • Click on my name to see the picture. I FORGOT THE KELLOGS DEALS!! Oh, well it was my 10th wedding anniversary so I didn’t want to spend all day in the store.

    • The save up to $55.00 Nabisco books are at my Krogers in Harriman tn. Does anyone know if the coupons that say Dec only have to be used Dec.?
      Can you use earlier?

    • Samantha

      My P&G e-saver coupons failed. I contacted P&G and they are looking into it.

      In the meantime, I might return the items for which the e-savers failed. After all, I paid more than I intended to, but did not notice until I got home.

    • Here in the Dallas area we didn’t have a special day sale at all. I wonder why?

    • Our sales normally run from Wed- Tuesday. if anyone out there is in the dallas area, maybe we can exchange tips or coupons.
      Let me know
