Posted August 13, 2012


Kroger is having another mega event this week: Buy 10 participating products and get $5 off at the register! There are some excellent prices this time around including .49 Chex Mix, .49 granola bars, .49 Speed Stick, .39 Turkey Hill Tea and much more! I will be heading to Kroger this week to take advantage of many of these deals! You'll also find good prices on pears, split chicken breasts, milk and bread AND a new fuel rewards promotion that earns you 4 times the normal rewards!

There are many deals this week that involve printable coupons from You can find the link to these coupons HERE.

Kroger Coupon Policy Basics
