Kroger 10 Item Mega Sale: The Coupons!

Alrighty, frugal faithful! I'm going to go through the items included in the sale and list the coupons I've found in recent Sunday inserts. For some, I have the date and insert for the coupon (ie: SS for Smart Source; RP for Red Plum; GM for General Mills); for some, I do not. I'll update this post as needed; email/comment if I missed any or if you've got linkage to printables.

The limit is (3) rewards per transaction, meaning you can buy any 30 of the items included in your Kroger Mega Sale and will receive a total of $15.oo off your order($5.00/10 items).

Best ways to save? Buying (10) $1.00 items for $10.00, getting $5.00 off $10.00 at point-of-sale leaving you a total of $5.00. Add coupons on top for each of the (10) items (and this works BEST if your Kroger doubles coupons) and you might find yourself at $0.00 or, even better, into those wonderful negative numbers we frugal faithful call "overage" - meaning you can get other items for free!

This sale offers many, many ways to leverage that overage in your transaction; plan on spending some time with your calculator before hitting the store.

I should remind you that I'm in the greater Cincinnati area; our Kroger ad runs Monday-Sunday and began 03/31/08. This sale runs through Sunday, April 13, in my region. Check Kroger online for details on your region.

be Kroger just informed me that their store policy is to not accept ANY printed coupons, only originals from the newspaper *sigh*

Karen, thanks for the heads up.

I went Krogering tonight and used a couple of printables with no problem at all. I'm wondering if there is a Kroger coroporate-based policy or if it's determined on a store-by-store basis. Anyone know?

Luckily, there are many coupons out from the Sunday inserts over the past few months that match up with this sale, with hopes some of the new coupons this Sunday will match up, too.

Good luck!

In my store, the Kraft Select singles were not part of the sale. The Windex Antibacterial IS part of the sale. The Kelloggs cereal seemed only to apply to Special K.

My cashier would not let me use any printables (I had two for the cookie pouches) but I had used a printable a week or two ago. I'm going to try again with a different cashier next time.
