Highlights for the week based on the Atlanta regional ad that I get in TN. Check your ad for more deals. My Kroger stores doubles unlimited coupons up to $.50 & anything $.55 & over redeems at face value.


Before you go to the store:

  • Remember to load your E-Coupons: Cellfire, Shortcuts, and PGEsaver.
  • Be sure to print some from Coupons.com, Redplum and Smart Source before shopping too!
  • Shopping tip ~ you don’t have to buy 10 of the same items in a 10 for $10 deal or 2 of a Buy 1 Get 1 Free.
  • Checkout my list of current catalina offers here which might pair up with something in the store. Let me know of any not listed and I will get them added!

NOTE: The Mega Sale that Kroger is having this week is for Buy 10 Save $5 Instantly which equates to $.50 per item.  I have already included the $.50 per item discount in the prices below with a * beside them.

Here’s a few things to know for anyone who is new to how the Mega Sales work:

  • Mega Event for Buy 10, Save $5 Instantly basically means you take $.50 off each item’s “sale" price.
  • Mega Sale items will have a special yellow tag labeling them throughout the store.
  • Mega Items are mix-and-match meaning you don’t have to buy 10 of the same thing!
  • All of the Mega Items are not always typically listed in the ad.  Watch for those hang tags!!!
  • Keeping the last tip in mind, make sure you bring all your coupons!
  • Plan on the fact that a Mega shopping trip will take longer.  There is alot of math involved.  You will probably be calculating your cost after coupons to determine whether it is a buy price or not.  You will also need to KEEP TRACK OF HOW MANY MEGA ITEMS YOU PUT IN YOUR CART!
  • I can’t stress the math factor during a Mega event enough!  If you aren’t diligent in counting the items as you place them in your cart then you are losing money.  If you miscount by 1 item then your $5 instant savings will NOT come off your receipt and thus you have not saved $.50 per item.
  • After you checkout you will notice a + sign next to each item which will help you tally up how many mega items you truly purchased in the transaction.  (should you happen to miscalculate beforehand)
  • ALWAYS check your receipts.  This is something that I make sure to do after every shopping trip but especially during a Mega Event.  Remember, Kroger has a scan right guarantee!  Plus, if the cashier doesn’t scan all your coupons & you didn’t catch it before you paid then you can take your receipt straight to the customer service counter to address the issue.
  • And, last but not least.  Don’t clear the shelves!  Mega Events typically last for two weeks.  TWO weeks is plenty enough time for you to pick up a few packages and request for 36 more of said item to be special ordered so that you can pick them up the following week.  Why?  Because it’s good coupon etiquette.  Simply be gracious to the other customers who shop there and leave some products on the shelf instead of just a spot for someone to dust.

    I am excited about the Kraft Cheese and some other things, too.
    I went today to Kroger and got 6 Old El Paso items (really 9 because 3 of the items-taco shells- had peelies for free seasoning). So I bought 6 items, used 3 save .60 off two coupons, got 3 free items and got $3 catalina to save money on meat. And I think I had an ecoupon for the OEP, too!

    Honey: I was super excited about the matchups too. Can't wait to get in the store and look for more deals. And will be loving the OEP too! :) I have several peelies onhand!
