But I did get the Coffee Mate deal w/coupon, and overall I did well, I think. I spent $131.75 and saved $52.34 in yellow tags/coupons, a total savings of 28%. Not bad for a first try :) Next time will be even better. <br /><br />I also found a deal today...Shell gas stations are affiliated w/Kroger, and I bought gas today at the station at Montgomery Rd (by Kenwood Mall) and 71. If you take your Shell gas receipt to Kroger and show it to the cashier, you get double points toward gas discounts! This is supposed to be good till the end of the month. YMMV depending on location, but there aren&#39;t any restrictions listed on the receipt, it just says &quot;at participating Kroger stores.&quot; Gas prices are getting up there again so anywhere you can save a few bucks helps.Some Suburban Momhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13908478478292293915noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-43717522534932357382011-01-12T07:15:25.822-08:002011-01-12T07:15:25.822-08:00@Anon: This is one of those &quot;great corporate ...@Anon: This is one of those &quot;great corporate mysteries&#39;, lol! It&#39;s a good question - how do you get the Kroger My Magazine mailers (which come about every 3-4 weeks and are filled with articles, recipes, and coupons)?<br /><br />I&#39;ve actually had the chance to ask this question of some of the Kroger Interactive Marketing Team members during past campaigns/events I&#39;ve done with Kroger. Their answer is this: it is not something you can sign up for; the My Magazine mailers are sent to an identified/select group of Kroger Card users.<br /><br />As to how they select/identify those users that receive these mailers, I cannot speak to that. My *guess* is that it&#39;s some combination of loyalty card usage data and marketing campaigns. <br /><br />If anyone from Kroger Corporate would like to chime in and add to this discussion, please do! The My Magazine question pops up in my comments/email every month or two. ;-)Marianne Thomashttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02657624957929650534noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-57734224458284745362011-01-11T06:58:46.399-08:002011-01-11T06:58:46.399-08:00@Anon - Yay!
