    scoutmom - didn't know there was a daily allotment either. Seems odd since it is not published anywhere I have seen. Thanks for the produce info LAX and scoutmom.

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 12, 2013

    Oh and I asked about Cheetos since they were not on the shelves and I was told that the daily allotment was already gone. I didn't realize there was a limit per day. But then that Kroger is kindof different anyway.

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 12, 2013

    Some of the items were not there or very little stock. The peaches were actually shrivling. The produce was much better at Aldi's.

  • LAXMom12 Aug 12, 2013

    I had the same produce experience at the one near me. When they had green beans for 99 cents/pound, I went to get some and they all had dark spots on them and were limp and there was a mountain of them (not the last ones). I did get some good red grapes for 99 cents/pound recently, but I have passed on a lot of other produce deals.

    The one in Cary at High House and Maynard. Of the three in the Raleigh area I have been in the best is the one on Six Forks.

    Which Kroger had the less than stellar produce, scoutmom?

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 11, 2013

    I wanted to add that when I looked at their ad and the digital coupons it was quite confusing. I need to print out my coupon list to get a handle on it. Some of the coupons are good for up to 5 items purchased at the same time.

  • scoutmomof2 Aug 11, 2013

    I was over there this afternoon, the produce was so poor that I ended up not getting any and going to Aldi instead. I did pick up the chicken thighs and some Old Spice deoderent. I used the B2 get a spray free, had a coupon they mailed me for one free and apparently had a $1 off digital coupon. So I got all three for $1.29.
