These deals started today at Kroger 12/28. It took me a little longer than normal, but I was doing a “scouting mission” to try to find all the P&G products for the in store deal!! I have added numerous things this week that are not advertised but are on sale.

There is a P&G Deal going all week, buy $25 get $5 off at checkout. It includes many P&G products. I have included all of them, but keep in mind that some are not really a great price.

      When I go to P&G e coupons, I am told there are none available. Does it sound like I am doing something wrong or are there only coupons available periodically? Thanks!

    • Jenny

      Have you possibly loaded them already? I was just there tonight and loaded new ones to my card… Did you just sign up for it? If you did it might be that they are not letting you get any until the new batch comes out on Thursday.

    • MelRae

      OH MY GOSH, Jenny! Your “My Deal Tonight” is just awesome!!! And I should be able to do this as well, as I have multiples of all my P&G paper coupons and e-coupons that are about to expire. I am sooo stoked!

    • Lynn

      Can some one explain to me how the e coupons work. If you load 1 say you load the Pantene buy 1 Shampoo or Conditioner get one styler free PG e coupon how many times can u use it in 1 trip? Like it I had 3 of the $3/2 coupons and used them all could I use the e coupon the same amount of times?

    • laura

      I signed up about 10 days ago and thought there were none available until I saw your recent post and started questioning it?? I will see what happens thurs/fri and then I will know if it is me or the system…thanks!

    • laura

      okay- please disregard the above post-
      I just fiqured it out. When I joined, I did not have my Kroger card in front of me- I tried to use my alternate ID but that didn’t take. When I entered the Kroger card # last night- apparently it had to update before it would allow me to load…and now it has. Thanks and sorry for my technical cluelessness!! :)-

    • Teresa

      You mentioned a $15 rebate on the olay products deal idea. Is that instant or mail-in?

    • Debbie

      Well, Jenny–I can’t believe your final total! I usually don’t figure out my bottom line before I go (normally for lack of time), but I’m going to this week, since I am off…

      I wasn’t going to consider the Cover Girl or Cascade since I don’t use CG and the Cascade didn’t seem like that great of a deal, but if you are getting everything for $.85, well then–that’s a whole other story, isn’t it? LOL!

    • Stacy

      Hi – my Kroger paper says the $5 will be taken off the other items in my transaction, not the P&G items, but I only wanted to go and purchase the P&G items I had coupons for (like your example above). Did that happen to you?

    • Jenny

      Teresa – The rebate is a mail in rebate. You can find it on http://www.olay.com or if was in the 12/14 P&G insert

      Stacy- I also got 2 gallons of milk so I did have other things in my buggy. From the receipt though it just comes off at the end and would probably be just fine whether you had other things or not. As long as they don’t owe you money! They don’t like that!

    • Paul

      I tried Kroger for the first time today and they wouldn’t take my printable online coupon. Is that something each Kroger decides or was the cashier wrong. I hate to complain over $0.70, but it looks like most people are able to use the coupons. What should I do?

    • Angela

      Jenny! You rocked it this week! I can’t wait to get to Kroger for the P&G deal!

    • Jenny

      Paul – more and more people have said that they are having problems with printable coupons. It is corporates policy to accept them, they even offer them on their site! You need to call corporate and complain about your store and they will get onto them.

      I had my local store try to tell me one printable coupon per transaction, not one per item, one total… I stopped the cashier right then and said we will site here and wait on your manager! The manager knew the correct policy and straightened the cashier out.

    • Julie

      I did your deal but dropped the cascade and added herbal essence using the $2.00 off ecoupon and then (2) $1.00 off paper coupons. I noticed when I got home though that the ecoupon for the pantene didn’t take though. I got the right size shampoo. Mousse would be considered a styler right? Anyways I went on the p & g site and sent them a message asking what I do to go about correcting this problem. Have you had this experience before?

    • Stacy

      Julie – I had the same problem today. Purchased a Pantene shampoo/conditioner and a Pantene hairspray AND two covergirl mascaras. Neither one of those coupons came off. I just sent them an e-mail, too. Strange because my Olay bodywash, Pringles and Crest all came off right away. Hopefully we’ll get this resolved!

    • Sienna

      The smaller packs of Pampers ($10.69) work for the P&G deal and there are some clearance Pantenes that also work.

    • Sienna

      I had the same problem with the Pantene ecoupon, I just figured it was because I bought a clearance one.

    • Julie

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that had problems with the pantene ecoupon. I was thinking maybe I did something wrong. The mascara one worked for me.

    • Lynn

      Can someone please explain the cg makeup deal?

      I’ve looked at it several times and don’t get how you can use 2 b1g1 coupons plus $ off coupons and only have 3 items.

    • Sienna

      The B1G1 coupons don’t recognize each other because one is an ecoupon and the other is a paper coupon. So you can use both together along with your $1 paper coupons. Does that make sense?

    • Lynn

      Yes that does thank you so much!

    • Lynn

      Also can you do 2 transaction with $25 in each and get the $5 off each of them? I don’t have an ad in front of me just the internet one and I can’t read the fine print.

    • Jenny

      Yes, you can do two $25 deals per transaction so buy $50 and get $10 off at checkout.

    • Marie

      Hi! I’m a newbe and crazy in love with it.Went to Kroger last light did what you did plus some. Took my Husband (he did well) anyway he pointed out the seanol febreze candel was marked down 3.99 I had a paper coupond $2off and ecoupond $2off made a .01 yea me. Wait it gets better. Also the febreze strater pack 3.99 paper $1 off and ecoupond for $5off thats a $2 plus. Fun stuff B^)

    • Lynn

      There’s a $1 off Crest toothpate coupon in the 11-30 p&g insert

    • Debbie

      Thanks, Marie, for your post. I am going crazy here trying to get all my stuff together before heading out.

      I came up here to read Jenny’s post one last time, and I saw your post! I’ll look for the Febreeze too thanks!

      I didn’t even know those were on the ecoupon list! (I’m a newbie too, and I depend on Jenny and the other blogs 100% to tell me what to do!)


    • Chelssya

      Cover Girl products are not part of the $5 off P&G products at my store. :-( I also had trouble with several of the eCoupons: Pantene B1G1, Olay Ribbons B1G1, Cascade, and Oral B toothbrush. I emailed P&G about the problem. I’ve encountered similar problems with Shortcuts eCoupons, and they credited my Kroger card with the disputed amount so that amount was just deducted from my next purchase. I hope P&G does the same thing. The lost savings totaled over $13! Anyone have experience with this?

    • Georgia

      I have had multiple problems in the past (and just yesterday) with my P & G e coupons not working. I have emailed them about this but have not heard a response. Some work and some don’t so I don’t trust the ecoupons anymore….

    • amy

      turns out apparently the covergirl products aren’t part of the $25 deal at my kroger, either, and the P&Gesaver coupon for the B1G1 CG mascara didn’t work! because of the covergirl not being included, and because for some reason they didn’t count one of my pantene products, i didn’t have enough to get 2 of the $5 off. i’ll go back tomorrow and talk to customer service, and if they won’t count the covergirl towards the promotion, i guess i’ll get a refund. i emailed P&G about the ecoupon problem, so we’ll have to see if i hear back from them.

    • Jennifer

      Thank you! I used your oil of olay suggestion and your pantene suggestion and it worked great! I always check here before I head to Kroger, and I am so grateful for you what you do to help out my checkbook! Happy New Year!

    • Andrea

      The Pantene e-coupon didn’t work for me either, so I emailed the people at pgesaver.com yesterday. I had to send info about what I bought, where, when, etc. Today, I received a response that they have loaded a customer service coupon worth $4 to my account. (This is more than the $3.29 value of the Pantene coupon.) Evidently they agreed that the coupon should have worked and added a little extra for my trouble. The new coupon is good off anything and will automatically apply the next time I make a purchase! Very good customer service!!

    • Deanna

      My P&G e-coupons didn’t work either for a total loss of $14.33. I just e-mailed them also. I hope I get a quick response, how frustrating!

    • threexsamama

      Does anyone know what the $15 gift card (rebate) from Olay can be used for? Is it only for Olay Regenerist products? ….I guess that would make sense.

      By the way, I just purchased Crest Whitestrips on sale at Kroger. I used a P&G esaver coupon, a $5 paper coupon exp. 1/4 (someone had left it on the shelf), and got the $5 P & G discount at the register. The sale price at Kroger for the Whitestrips Premium was $29.99 and I ended up paying $14.99. Thanks for all your help, Jenny.

    • Blair

      My ad says the $5 savings is on NON P&G items, so you have to get some items that ARE NOT P&G to get the savings. Anyone getting to use the savings when you ONLY bought P&G items????

    • Thanks Jenny for all of this, your site is rockin. Why should I even post to my blog anymore? You have the best deals!
      Its much quicker here than going to some of the other sites and you have it all in a easy to read format.

    • sara

      The Pantene P&G e-coupon didn’t work for me either. I emailed them and they credited my account with $4 for my next trip. Went yesterday and the $4 didn’t come off! arrgghh Let me know if anyone else is still having trouble! I emailed and asked for a cash refund so we’ll see what happens…
