Kroger deals 1-2

Posted January 4, 2011

Kroger is offering the $4 off 4 P&G promo again and there are a number of citrus fruits on sale this week.

Deals are valid January 2 – January 8.

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: The same P&G promo from last week is running again. 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:

Secret deodorant
Sale: $2.29
Promo discount: $1.00
MQ: $1 coupon from 12/26
Total after promo and coupon = .29

Old Spice deodorant
Sale: $2.29
Promo discount: $1.00
MQ: $1/2 from 12/26 AND coupon for FREE Old Spice High Endurance Body Wash when you buy 1 Old Spice Deodorant.


2 Old Spice Deodorant
2 Old Spice High Endurance Body Wash

Use the following coupons:

$1/2 deodorant coupon from 12/26
2 coupons for free body wash when you buy deodorant from 12/26

Total for all 4 items after coupons and $4 promo discount = FREE (.42 money maker)

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.

    I went to Kroger last week for the P&G deals. I am closest to the one in Apex, on Lake Pine & 64. They do not accept more than 2 coupons per manufacturer, so I went to the one in Cary on Maynard, and they accepted all 4 of my coupons for the P&G deal. :)

    I have seen post about "123 Get Samples" but I have not found their link online. Does anyone know the web address?

    Talinusa - I just copied and pasted the list I put together from last weeks deals since the promo was the same. I do not ever advocate using expired coupons. I'll take that deal off - thanks for the heads up.

  • Talinusa Jan 4, 2011

    I really appreciate your breaking down the sales and which coupons but I am little confused here... A few of the breakdowns have us attempting to use expired coupons(12/31.) I hope this was a typo :).
