Just FYI. Was at Kroger last night and bought 2 boxes of Kool Aid singles on sale 10 for $10. A Catalina printed out for $1/2. Bought a couple more at $.50 ea. :)

2 Aimee May 17, 2011 at 11:24 AM

Also…Colgate toothpaste is on sale for $.88. Used a $.75/1 Q which doubled & made them free.

3 Katie May 17, 2011 at 6:44 PM

I used the Colgate coupon $.75/1 Q and they only gave me a $.13 bonus instead of doubling it. Has anybody else had this problem? I go to the Marysville Kroger and have never had this problem again.

4 Annette May 17, 2011 at 7:17 PM

Also.. BarS hotdogs are on sale for $.88 cents and in the RP insert there is $1/2 making the hotdogs for me $.33.. Wish our Smith’s doubled..

5 HeatherS May 17, 2011 at 11:02 PM

I also used the Colgate 75 cent coupon and received the 13 cent bonus to make the 88 cent Colgate free. My Kroger (Mt Vernon) has never given overage so the 13 cent bonus, making the item free, was what I was expecting.

6 Jennifer May 18, 2011 at 9:16 AM

Most stores don’t give overage on the doubled portion. Now if you have a $0.75 coupon and the product is $0.50, then more stores will give overage in that case, but must will only double up to the price of the product.

7 Beth May 18, 2011 at 1:25 PM

I wasn’t able to find the Kashi coupon on the website :-/

8 Brandi May 18, 2011 at 4:17 PM

Just wondering which RP the BarS coupon came from?

9 Sondra May 18, 2011 at 7:13 PM

My kroger has coupons in front of the california and the digornio pizzas for 1.25 off making them 3.74 Great deal for frozen pizza!

10 Lena May 19, 2011 at 3:17 PM

My mom shopped at the Urbana store and had some coupon problems, so I called the Bellefontaine store and a newer coupon policy is going into effect. They are now limiting the amount of coupons to three coupons for a like item.
So 10 for 10 items, you can’t get 10 and then use 10 coupons for the same thing. Or in a mega event, like this week you wouldn’t be able to get 10 items, get the $5 off and then use coupons for all 10 items-only 3 of the items. Not sure when this goes into effect for all Central Ohio stores but already at both of these stores. Will make mega events a lot harder.

11 Aimee May 19, 2011 at 10:04 PM

I’m wondering If anyone tried the sweet potato fries coupon on the Ore Ida deal and if it worked.

12 cheryl May 19, 2011 at 11:31 PM

Lena I shop in Bellefontaine & Urbana. I am interested to hear all the changes if you know any more. I strongly prefer the Bellefontaine store. My .75 coupons always double there and in Urbana they typically only take two like coupons. The registers there (Urbana) recognize the extra coupons and the amount isn’t deducted. I’ve messed up a few times and caught my mistake later. Both stores aren’t allowing e coupons to be used with paper ones anymore so I stopped loading them to my card as I forget what I have until I’m checking out & my coupons are rejected.

13 angie May 20, 2011 at 6:18 PM

The Marion kroger, over by Meijer gave the bonus too but they’ve never allowed for overage.

14 Lena May 22, 2011 at 2:00 PM

After my Mom had trouble at the Urbana Kroger, I called and asked to speak with the manager. He read me a company memo dated he said the 16th of May. They will only allow 3 coupons for the same item. So if you bought Crest for example, and P&G coupons now say 4 coupons for like items, you would only be able to use 3. Same example but if you had P&G coupons from an insert for toothpaste then had a couple from a P&G mailer, it still wouldn’t matter that they were different coupons you would only be able to use 3 for Crest toothpaste, unless maybe you bought different varieties. I asked that specifically when he told me only 3q’s for the same item. They still double up to .99 and will still accept manufacturer coupons from printed sources as well as internet printed coupons that have not been photocopied (well duh, but I guess there have been problems. I have issues using manufacturer q’s from company websites like 3m and others that they come up as a pdf file. So if an internet printable doesn’t scan don’t count on them manually pushing through even for legitimate q’s. Correct- you can only use either e-q or regular q not both. It does say they have the right to limit coupons, so if you plan a huge trip with massive q’s you might have trouble. I don’t do that anymore (not that I ever did like extreme couponing or anything) but it just seems like something always rings up wrong or coupons don’t get scanned or something) smaller trips work for me. I did ask the manager if I could get a copy of the memo and he said it wasn’t something they can give out to the public. But you can contact the main Kroger customer service and get an outline of their policy for your region. I did that last year. So I need to update. The worst thing about this will be on things that we use alot of that doesn’t go on sale often(I’ll have to do separate transcations) and the mega events. But I figured things would change now that using coupons has become so popular around here. People are clearing shelves and the stores are changing their policies now. I kind of dropped out of drugstore shopping for awhile because I was tired of planning, clipping and getting to the store for them to be out of stuff even on the first day of the sale, I think the Bellefontaine Cvs is a pain to shop at now. Hope this helps.

Does anyone know where to find Kroger match ups for the Columbus region? I usually come here for the match ups but they are not posted. Thanks!
