My Kroger trip, Monday, 7/12:

Spent: $23.48
Saved: $55.99 (70%)
Earned: $4.00 OYNO catalina

Kroger is running another Mega Event this week and next: buy 10 participating items, get $5 off at checkout.

As I walked through the store, I noticed several unadvertised items; when I asked at the customer service desk for a full list of all the participaing items, they didn't have one yet.  (Usually, you can find a little card or flyer with the full list of particpating items/brands at the front of the store.) I plan on making another trip to Kroger (without the smallfolk) to do some research on those unadvertised deals.

Kroger is also starting to put back to school deals on sale this week and there is a catalina deal available on school supplies as well. Buy $10 worth of pariticpating brands, get $2 catalina; buy $20 worth of participating brands, get $4 catalina.

I loaded up on Crayola and Avery products since they were on sale, and bought $10 worth of those items on sale. However, I received a $4.00 catalina at checkout, making me think that the catalinas are triggered by the full price of the items, not the sale prices. If anyone else experiences this, please share in a comment.
