Kroger Deals for July 8-14, 2009

Kroger

None of the grocery stores stood out to me as having unbelievable deals.  I chose to highlight Kroger because they have a good deal on paper towels, Hot Pockets, and some nice produce prices.  See the end of this post if you are new to shopping at Kroger or using coupons.  Here are some of the best bargains I see:

Buy 4 packs of Kraft cheese, Get a $3 coupon at check-out good off your next order
Buy 5 packs of Kraft cheese, Get a $4 coupon at check-out good off your next order

All items must be purchased in the same transaction and must be 6 oz. or larger.  Products included are: Kraft shreds, chunks, cubes, sticks, crumbles, cracker cuts, twists, Cracker Barrel chunks, sticks, cracker cuts, slices, Polly-o-strings/twists, Kraft Deli Fresh slices.

————————

These deals are for Kroger Southwest (including Texas).   The following is the policy (as I understand it) at the store I visit most often.  Kroger triples coupons up to and including $.39 (i.e. a $.30 coupon will take a total of $.90 off) and doubles coupons up to and including $.50 (i.e. a $.50 coupon will take a total of $1.00 off).  Be sure to ask your store about their coupon policy.  The stores I visit will allow unlimited double coupons per transaction, but will only allow 3 tripled coupons per purchase.  In addition, they only allow up to 3 of the exact same coupon per transaction.  However, they have always allowed me to make multiple purchases in a visit so that I can use all the coupons that I have.

Kroger Deals for the Week of April 29 – May 5

kroger

There are not many deals at Kroger this week.  If you see something I missed, be sure to let me know.  The only freebie is salsa, but it could potentially be a killer deal!   For the newbies, “BOGO” means buy one get one free.

Be sure to ask your store about their coupon policy. The stores I visit will allow unlimited double coupons per transaction, but will only allow 3 tripled coupons per purchase. In addition, they only allow up to 3 of the exact same coupon per transaction. However, they have always allowed me to make multiple purchases in a visit so that I can use all the coupons that I have.

Decode the coupon abbreviations:

SS = Smart Source coupon insert

RP = Red Plum coupon insert

PG = Procter & Gamble coupon insert

GM = General Mills coupon insert

Here are some of the coupon match-ups that I see:

Wholly Salsa 12 oz, BOGO ($2.99 ea)

Buy 2 = $2.99, Use BOGO coupon from 4/19 SS

= 2 FREE

* Note: You may also be able to buy chips and use the coupon for $3.00 off chips from Wholly Salsa from 4/19 SS to get free chips, too!  OR You may be able to use $1.00/1 from 4/26 SS in conjunction with the BOGO coupon to make $1.00 on the deal.  I’m not sure what the coupon policy is on this, so you’ll have to check at the store.

* If you are able to use the $3.00 off chips coupon, look for a bag of Grande tortilla chips with a $2.00 off beef peelie on the package.  Then, you can use the peelie for $2.00 off an inexpensive beef such as ground round to get it free or cheap, or you may be able to use it towards the purchase of beef fajita meat in the Crazy Combo Deal (listed below)!

* I may be stretching it here, but… you may also be able to use the $1.00/1 Grande tortilla chips from 4/19 SS to make the deal even sweeter!!

Crazy Combo Deal– Buy 2 Kroger beef or chicken seasoned fajitas (32 oz), get these 4 items free ($7.12 value):

Fresh Express shredded lettuce (8 oz bag), Country Fresh pico de gallo (8-10 oz), Dos Padres tortilla chips (14 oz), Kroger sour cream (12-16 oz)
