Have you been Krogering yet this week?  Be sure to check the bottom of your Kroger receipt to see if you qualify for the Kroger Brands Shop & Save Promotion.  Here's what my receipt says:

You've Been Chosen for the Kroger Brands Shop & Save
10/1/10 - 10/31/10
Spend $100 or more on Kroger Brands in October and receive a coupon at checkout for $5.00 off your next shopping order.  Excludes random weight items.

I'm not sure how Kroger is choosing shoppers for this promotion so I have no idea how you might get "picked" but it is certainly worth the extra second or two to scan to the end of your receipt (past your big ol' Kroger Savings tally) to see if you lucked into this, too.

Here's some of the Kroger brand items I purchased on Monday:

What makes this promotion even sweeter is that for many of those items (raisins, carrots, tomatoes), I was able to use store coupons that I received in the Kroger My Magazines (School Days) and Loyal Customer mailers.  Be sure to check your coupon box/binder to see if you have any of those as well.

And while I'm on the subject of Kroger My Magazine mailer coupons and Kroger mailer coupons in general, I know many of you have wondered/commented/asked in the past how to get those delivered to you as well. 

My understanding -- after working with and talking to Kroger corporate folks in the past -- is that those mailers are triggered by your loyalty card usage.  My advice to you to would be to make sure you also register your Kroger card online here at Kroger.com.  You'll need to enter your home mailing information as well.  

While registering your card online doesn't guarantee you'll get those mailers any sooner, your information will be recorded in that customer database built on those online registrations; my thinking/hunch is that the more ways that Kroger can get info to you (email, USPS), the better your odds.

And don't forget to load the Kroger eCoupons to your card after you register it; you can do that here.  Make sure to play the Kick Off to Savings game online, too - you might just win a prize!

Did you get picked for the Kroger Brands Shop & Save promotion?  Let us know!
