Kroger Deals, 5/12 - 5/18

I'm part of the Grocery Gathering over at BeCentsAble. Be sure to check here to find the best deals each week at your local grocery store.

As always, I'm highlighting the best deals for Kroger in Greater Cincinnati; most of these may also match up to your local Kroger as well. Check here for your local Kroger's weekly ad.

My Kroger doubles coupons up to $0.50 (doubling to $1.00); my final price reflects that doubled amount.

It's a better week at Kroger than last week. There are many great 10/$10 or $1.00 each items on sale along with some good B1G1Free deals. I'm still hopeful that next week at Kroger will be a coupon blowout with the approach of end of month graduations and Memorial Day Weekend.

Here goes!


Buy a Kroger Gift Card for $300, $600, or $1200, get and additional 10% value added ($30, $60, or $120) FREE! (Limit one offer per household, exp. July 31)

*Kroger is trying to grab your Tax Stimulus dollars with this offer; it's a great idea if you have the cash on-hand to buy one of these cards and the discipline to use it within your budget guidelines. Don't we all just love FREE money?

Buy $20.00 of Horizon Organic Products, Receive a coupon for $5.00 off your next order! (This deal good through 05/24/08!)

Click here to register and print coupons for Lactose-Free Milk and Milk + Omega-3 DHA.

Buy (4) Post Cereals at 4/$10, get instant $4.00 off at checkout.

I am at a loss to locate any coupons for Post that haven't expired; if anyone out there has any, please comment with dates or links to printables.

And when Kroger has run this deal in the past, I've noticed that the Chocolate Cluster Honey Bunches of Oats DO NOT count. I mention that because there are still some good $2.00/1 printables out for those here.
