    stacey, the Kroger in FV has their computers set up to deduct the digital coupon first, and if you present a MQ, it will beep when they try to scan it - I believe their screen indicates to the cashier that a coupon has already been accepted for that item :( At least that's how it's been with me.

    So what I do, is I only choose those coupons with a higher value than what Kroger will double (anything over 50 cents) when I load their digital coupons. That way I save my higher value coupons to use at Lowes and HT.

    Kroger is giving away one bag of Frito-Lay chips (2.5 - 3.0 oz.) per customer on April Fool's Day.

    Does anyone know if Kroger (Fuquay) will allow you to use a manufacturer's coupon as well as a digital coupon that you have loaded to your member rewards card? Or do they only allow 1 or the other?

    If anyone else is from the Dunn area you should check out Save a Lot Food Store. They have bananas for $0.29/lb!! There are many other great deals but the bananas made me the happiest since I was in need of some to make bread today!!

    I did not see any information regarding "in one purchase" when I bought it. When I printed the groupon, I did not see it at that point either. I used it online for e-books and noticed it was gone after my purchase. I pulled the paper copy out again and it is in very small print and if you do not have glasses on you do not see it. Not sure if I will try again or not, I kinda feel cheated.

    doodlesmom - As I posted in the other thread where you also posted your Groupon concerns, you are so right about reading the fine print. Almost every one of the daily deals from the various deal sites has to be used in 1 order, they all have expiration dates and some have other stipulations. Before you buy any deals, read everything on the page with the details. Groupon still offers great deals, you just have to know what you are buying and follow the requirements of the coupon. I hope you don't give up on them - you will definitely miss out on some good buys.

    This really isn't a Groupon problem after all. They gave you all the information you needed to know in order to use this Groupon fully. I am sure that next time you will read all the information before purchasing.

    I thought Groupons were great until I used one from Barnes and Noble. Read all of the fine print when doing these. The one I bought said that I had to use in one order. I didn't and had a $20 groupon and only got to use $3 which was a waste of money

    When you post HT ... when you buy all 4 of the jello temptations as offered on the facebook page you are getting them bogo. I had 75 off coupons which slashed the 2 I bought in half and then at the end of the sale when you buy all 4 you gat a 3.00 catalina coupon off your next store purchase! WAIT ... theres more! Each package has a .75 cent off coupon inside!
