Kroger has a new mega event starting this week with some great deals. They also have good buys on milk ($1.99/gallon!!), butter, lots of veggies, some school supplies and more!

Kroger Coupon Policy Basics

Doubles coupons up to .50 at Kroger stores in the Raleigh, NC area

Many Kroger stores in the area now allow 5 identical coupons per day (check with your store about their limits)

No total limits of coupons doubled per day

Senior Citizen Discount on Tuesday’s: If you are born on or before 1954, receive a 5% discount on total grocery bill (excludes alcohol, tobacco and prescriptions)

    Canes4ever, check with customer service about that before you shop. I'm sitting here looking at a ticket where I bought 13 items from the mega event and I was credited with the discount for each.

  • jdouglas13 Jul 8, 2012

    Canes, that's right -- you need to buy in multiples of 10.

    I couldn't believe the price for milk! It's almost too good to be true, and I'm half expecting to see a correction posted in the store, but they have some good prices on a lot of produce this week, so it won't be a wasted trip if the milk price is wrong.

    Very excited about the $25 GC for RX transfer! :) Walgreens has a coupon in their flyer this week as well, with a September expiration date. I see deals in my future... ;)

    On the mega event - I assume I need to buy 10, 20, 30, etc. of the eligible items to get the discount? In other words - if I buy 15 participating items, I will get $0.50 of the first 10 items and nothing off the next 5 items, correct?

    Awesome news on the milk! I was just getting ready to run out again. :)
