Kroger - I saved $100'ish bucks today...

I ran to the Kroger today - partially because of their great sale going on... Make sure you check your ad though, since Kroger is so 'regional' with their deals... Plus I wanted to partake in the rolling Catalina deal of buying 3 Buddies - you get a Catalina for $3 off 3 Johnson's product... Just keeps rolling and rolling... not that anyone will ever need any more of this soap. Plus I wanted to score some free Quaker Rice Cake snacks! Here's how I did:

You're awesome...I sooo wish we had a Kroger!

Thank you!! What stores do you have? There's so many awesome stores out there that I'm jealous of!

Good job! I wish we had the steamers in our ad because I got no deals without them. I had a plan for 8 items, 3 of which would have been the steamers. Now I have to come up with 5 items. If I can somehow nab the Cheese blinkies, I will do that. I am not the main shopper though, I am just a college student out looking for free things. It is a hobby :P

Thanks for the Horizon milk tipoff though. Unfortunately, campus hasn't gotten their regular newspapers in so I didn't get multiples of these ads (as I only bought one too :()

Anyways I am going to shut up, thanks for the ideas. This will help me plan something.

Very good as always. Don't you love when you get these kinds of deals? Note to all about Krogers...when the sales are on it is great when they are not on..not so great...so its not a main store to shop at without sale ad.

I never find a blinkie...jealous.

Can you only do one $5 off 10 items deal per transaction, do you know?- so if I have, say, 20 items in that deal I want to get, do I have to do 2 transactions? Couldn't tell from the ad.
Thanks!

cheapsk8mom said...

I think you can do up to 3 groups of 10 in a transaction. Mine had 20... so (x2)

I sure wish there were 20 things in my local ad that were worth it to me lol... Some areas got RoTel and French's Mustard - not mine though :(

We have Meijer that doesn't double, then of couse Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens. And we have Shop N Save who has a good deal every now and then. Nothing exciting here!
