Kroger Coupon Policy Basics

Doubles coupons up to .50

Many Kroger stores only allow 2 identical coupons per day (check with your store about their limits)

No total limits of coupons doubled per day

Kroger e-coupons can be found at the link in the box above

P&G Promotion: Get $4.00 off at checkout when you buy 4 participating products. Basically, it’s $1 off each item when you buy 4. You can mix and match any 4. All purchases must be made in the same transaction. There are a number of P&G esaver digital coupons you can load to your card that match well with the sales. These are manufacturer’s coupons and are not to be coupled with hard copy manufacturer’s coupons (like those from the Sunday paper). They do not double at the register.

WARNING: Although the deals below look great when coupled with the manufacturer’s coupons from the Sunday paper, be aware that many Kroger stores in our area have decided they will only accept 2 coupons per manufacturer (not per product – it’s per manufacturer). Even if they are coupons that won’t double because they are over .50, this is their policy (which is ridiculous, in my opinion). If that is the case, they will not let you use all 4 coupons making the deals much less attractive. Feel free to post how your local Kroger handled your P&G coupons.

Some of the better deals include:

Herbal Essences or Aussie shampoo, conditioner or styler
Sale: $2.84
Promo discount: $1.00
MQ: BOGO coupon from 12/26 AND $1/1 coupon from 11/28 (exp 12/31)

2 coupons for free body wash when you buy deodorant from 12/26

Now that scenario only works if your Kroger will allow you to use all 4 coupons. As I mentioned above, many Kroger stores have decided they will only accept 2 coupons per manufacturer. If that is the case, they will not let you use all 4 coupons.

    That's great that they took all your coupons. Thanks for sharing your deals and good experience, cdaughtrey! Which Kroger did you shop?

    I purchased Tide, Charmin, Bounty, Dawn (getting the $4 PG sale). I also downloaded the ecoupons for all 4 items and had clipped coupons for 3 of the 4 items; 2 of the coupons doubled. ALso bought Swiffer wet cloths with clipped coupon (doubled), and used e coupon for Sprite. Bought a total of 12 items, total $36.04 after all coupons and sales which were 23.80.
