Kroger 5% off digital coupon: Did you get it?

Posted October 10

Kroger e-mail

Check your e-mail to see if you got an offer from Kroger for 5% off a purchase of $20 or more!

I just got my e-mail and downloaded the coupon. It’s valid through Saturday, October 14.

Based on the e-mail it looks like it was not sent to everyone.

Did you get the offer, as well?

Once I clicked on the link in the e-mail, I could see the offer was loaded to my Kroger.com digital coupon account.

I find the timing interesting considering the Harris Teeter digital coupon announcement made yesterday. I have been wondering if the new Harris Teeter digital coupons portal would be the same one Kroger uses (since Kroger owns it). Maybe this is a way to get Harris Teeter shoppers more comfortable with the Kroger portal by encouraging us to use it before Harris Teeter rolls it out next week. This is pure speculation on my part.

What do you think?

    I got the 5% email, but actually doesn't make too much sense for me. I get the 5% senior discount if I go there on Tuesdays. I hit and miss shopping there, never usually have a large order, but they send free and discounted coupons regularly in my emails.
    I have gone more regularly there after getting very upset with all the HT changes, but still go to several other stores that are close together.

    Dang it. Because I was in SC so much this year, I switched my store preference. I just realized it wiped out my communications preferences. That explains why I haven't been receiving emails from Kroger. Oh well.

    I got the email in August - do not remember specifi date but it was good for parts of 2 "ad" weeks ( Wednesday to Tuesday)

    I could share the emails but prefer not to share my personal email account and info on a public site .
    So far no "%" off email today ...
    My DH ( and sometimes me ) are in Kroger at least twice a week ( fresh produce and milk )
    Dr D -What a bummer ! I get emails from Kroger at least 1 per week sometimes more ( 3 so far since Friday ) - especially on Tuesdays &/or Wednesdays ( the new weekly deals and my "Best Customer" rewards/digital coupons ) .
    I get snail mail from them too : coupon brochure twice last week -: a sample of kitty treats with coupon for free package the week before .

    I got it today, but it's only good until Saturday. I had just shopped there Sunday. (Six Forks Rd. Kroger)

    Thanks for posting everyone! It looks like it was not sent to a bunch of people.

    observant - that is very interesting. This is the first time I have ever received a discount like this from Kroger as far as I can remember.

    Dr D - I thought the same thing about it being targeted to infrequent shoppers, BUT, I shop there about every other week, so I'm there pretty regularly. Maybe they are angling to make me an every week shopper. And Jdouglas - you don't shop Kroger every week do you? I'd think you would get that e-mail, too.

    Maybe it was geographically targeted for the Garner area shoppers. The Garner Aldi has been price matching many Kroger sales on eggs and milk lately. Maybe that is what this is about.

    Nope, nothing for me either.

    Unlike every other loyalty program, I don't recall ever receiving e-mails from Kroger, even though I've just checked the communications preferences in my account and I am opted in for Special Promotions. They have sent me coupons in the mail the last 2-3 months though, which hadn't happened for many years.

    Given the "Come visit us again" wording, maybe this offer is being targeted to folks who do not shop there regularly, which excludes me because I'm usually there weekly.

  • observant Oct 10, 1:10 p.m.

    Before today , I have received 2 of these : one in August ( expired 8-16-17) and one in September ( expired 9-30-17). Both were good for 2 weeks
