    TJ84 - thanks - I put it on the Kroger list this week just forgot to add it to this one. Will add it now. :-)

  • crwilson1985 Aug 6, 2015

    Jif coupon is in the 08/02 RP circular

  • TJ84 Aug 6, 2015

    Faye, I have a coupon that I think is from last Sunday's paper. Save .50 on 2 Jif Peanut Butter Products. That makes the Jif peanut butter an even better deal at Kroger! Have you ever tried the Jennie-O turkey burgers? Just wondering how they were.
