Uncle Ben’s rice is on sale for $1.29, and there is a $0.75/1 coupon on their website. My kroger doubles up to $0.99 making it FREE! :-)

2 Devon P May 2, 2011 at 3:25 PM

what if you use coupons to get 10 items for free with the discount? Does those 10 items get you the additional $5 off or do you have to buy 20 (10 items additional that you are paying regular price for)?

3 Chella May 2, 2011 at 5:39 PM

The Eakin Road Krogers e-coupons DO NOT work with MF or printed coupons because once you put in your shoppers card it uses the e-coupons and they WILL NOT put in manualy the normal ones. Superviser said he called loyalty and are trying to find out how to “explain this to people”. However they do double normal coupons so my sujestion is if you shop here, forget the e-coupons-maybe switch stores.

4 Mary May 2, 2011 at 8:20 PM

Devon- You do not have to get additional items. Items will ring up at regular pric. Then if you purchase the 10 items, at the end of your transaction it will take $5 off. Just be sure to have a few extra items to cover any overge.

EX- If you bought 10 of the Ronzoni Pasta each will ring up 99 cents
10X .99= $9.9
– (5) $1/2 Ronzoni coupons
= $4.99
-$5 Kroger 10 sale
= one penny overage! :)
My Koger will not allow for the overage, that is why I suggest getting at least one more item to cover it.
Hope that helps!

I went during the triple coupons yesterday & the computer would only take off for the price of the item, not triple the coupon (or double the coupon in some cases too). The cashier stated it’s because they do not allow for any overage. I had to give my loyality card first for the coupons to double or triple & the loyality card is what took the price of the item down to the sale price. If the store would allow it to be on the regualr price most of my coupons would of doubled or tripled for the full amount.
It happened repeatedly (at least 10 of my coupons) I’m frustrated because most of the coupons were for .50 cents off 2 items that were priced at .99 cents or some were $1.25. I also had a .35cent off coupon & the item was .99 cents & it only took off .99 cents

6 Christy May 2, 2011 at 9:59 PM

Look for peelie coupons on Kraft bbq sauces, $2.00 off Country Time Lemonade/Kool-Aide canisters…my Kroger price on these was $2.00, so I got two free!

7 Barry Hughes May 3, 2011 at 3:50 AM

Some of the Weight Watchers Entrees were marked $1.38 which is even cheaper. Also found a printable $0.70 cents off of one Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Cereal. I saw this at Kroger yesterday on sale for $1.98 – potentially making a box $0.58 cents each.

8 Jessica Gundy May 3, 2011 at 8:56 AM

In this last Sunday’s paper there was a coupon for the Krafts Barbecue Sauce for .45 off. Kroger doubled that, so I got it for free. Actually, I GOT 55 cents to take it out of the store!
I can’t remember what insert I got the coupon out of, but it was from the May 1st paper.

9 Devon P May 3, 2011 at 9:20 AM

So I paid $.40 for 6 boxes of the pasta, 2 bags of chips, and 2 boxes of cereal. But essentially it should have been free with .10 overage to use towards my other items. Here’s why:

I just moved and my new Kroger says they double coupons up to .$.50 or $1.00 total. They wouldn’t add on the extra .25 for my Mom’s Best .75 coupons though. Is that a store specific policy or does their corporate policy say they should have given me the extra quarter? I know I’ve always received it at every other Kroger I’ve shopped at.

10 Toni May 3, 2011 at 10:51 PM

I just have to say I like this site. I can’t find another website that covers my local grocery store sales. All the ones I have checked out have stores I’ve never heard of.

11 B May 4, 2011 at 1:55 PM

I think the computers are slowly starting to catch up with the overages…the registers are getting “smarter” is the issue.

Chella, I ran into that problem on the LAST triple coupon trip, a few weeks ago. This time, I tried to make sure I didn’t have a conflict with eCoupons, but there were still a few. My cashier operator entered them for me…she said because it’s easier to do that than stand and argue with a customer. LOL

I’m only loading eCoupons now before a trip if I don’t have a paper coupon to go with it. I knew that would catch up/on eventually.

12 Ross May 4, 2011 at 9:02 PM

what if i have 10 items that are participating but i want to get 15 items on the list?
do i have to get 20 EXACTLY to get them all? and it will pick the first 10 that get scanned to use the .50 discount on??

13 Amy Lloyd May 4, 2011 at 9:45 PM

You have to purchase 10 items to get the $5 off discount. You can do multiple 10 items, get $5 off in the same order, so if you want to get 20 items, you will get a total of $10 off. If you buy 15, it will only give you the maximum discount or additional $0.50 off each item on the first 10 items the cashier scans.

14 Marcy May 5, 2011 at 6:23 AM

Thanks for all of the comments and to those of you who answered questions here – I really appreciate it!

I am still trying to grasp all of the recent coupon policy changes myself…it is a struggle b/c Kroger doesn’t post their coupon policy anywhere. I do know that they are no longer allowing eCoupons and Manufacturer’s coupons to go through together on 1 item. I was not aware of overage issues. I am also hearing that they are now limiting the number of like PRINTABLE coupons to 3 per transaction – but have not heard of a limit on coupons from other sources. I personally have not run in to an issue with this yet…Again, thanks so much for the comments…it helps so much to hear what you guys are experiencing.

15 Francie May 6, 2011 at 3:26 PM

No prints remaining on the Kraft Shredded cheese w/Philadelphia.

16 Lori May 9, 2011 at 3:45 PM

I have not yet had an issue with paper and ecoupons coming off together on one item. My store still takes them, and I will get overage during mega sale because of the price before the mega sale comes off. I won’t get overage on it if it’s any other day because the computer will adjust down the bonus coupon so that I won’t receive more than the value of the item (and I think now recognizes that the ecoupon came off of the item as well). Darn, but, still lucky I can combine the paper and ecoupon.

I do suggest flying under the radar though. I never give them reason to be suspicious about anything because I’m not purchasing like items in bunches. Makes it much easier.
