(Note: when using the FREE Old Spice Body Wash wyb Deodorant, exp. 1-31 (P&G 12/26/10) coupon, cashier will take off $3.50 for the FREE Body Wash- making the body wash FREE plus the $1 P&G instant savings is overage which I considered to go towards the deodorant-making the deodorant .29 each after coupon and both instant savings- does that make sense?)

Getting Started At Kroger

 

Coupon Policy:
Kroger accepts manufacturer coupons, Kroger Catalina coupons and internet printable coupons. At this time most Kroger stores do not double coupons any longer. Some Kroger stores still doubles coupons up to $1 and has a  limit of 5 like manufacturer coupons and 2 like printable coupons that will double.

Ads Run:
Kroger ads run from Monday through Sunday.

Shoppers Card:
Kroger offers a Kroger Plus Card. This card allows you to get the sale price and sometimes additional discounts only for card holders. Kroger Plus Card is FREE.

You can also use this card to load coupons onto it. These loadable coupons will be taken off your total purchase at check out once you have swiped your card. Kroger, Cellfire and Shortcuts are the sites that you can log into and add electronic coupons to your Kroger Plus Card.

You can also load E-Coupons to your card from UPromise. Although UPromise coupons do not come off your total at the register, they do bank in an account to use for your child’s college education.

Reusable Bags:
Kroger no longer offers any discount for bringing in your own reusable bags.

Additional Information:
Kroger also uses Catalina coupons, but only ones that were printed from Kroger. These are the coupons that print out of a separate machine during checkout. Catalina coupons can either be manufacturer coupons (good for only items listed) or amounts off your next purchase coupons (example: $2.00 off your next purchase-good for any items in the store).

Kroger also send coupons via mail. Just log into Kroger’s site and make sure that your information is up to date.

Kroger does offer 10/$10 deals often. You do not need to purchase 10 to get them for a $1.00 each.

Kroger offers rain checks for items that are listed in their ad that they are out of. Take the Kroger ad to the customer service desk and ask them for a rain check for the items that you want.

Kroger no longer allows you to combine loadable coupons and manufacturer coupons. Once you scan your card, your loadable coupons will be taken off your total purchase. If you then have manufacturer coupons, they will not be accepted if there was a loadable coupon already used.

UPDATE: Kroger no longer doubling coupons in Cincinnati Market!

UPDATE: Kroger’s new policy as of October 10, 2011- see picture below!
