UPDATE: The Kroger Friday Freebie this week has been extended through Sunday!

The digital coupon was not loading properly on Friday, so Kroger is allowing reward members to load the free product digital coupon through Sunday, May 1, 2016.

The Kroger Friday Freebie this week is a FREE Sara Lee Artesano bread loaf, 20 oz.

You have until May 15 to redeem pick up the freebie once you have downloaded it to your Kroger digital coupons at Kroger.com.

Then, when you get to the checkout line at Kroger with the free product, you just give them your registered rewards card at the register. When they scan the product, it will deduct the price of the item from the total making it free!

Thanks to everyone who posted that the freebie had been continued!

    I am with ThomasG. I love my Kroger. I went in tonight. Between the buy 4 get $4 off, 10 for $10, eCoupons, and my snail mail coupon friend, I saved over $40 on a $108 trip. That includes enough cat food and TP for over a month.

    ThomasG! So nice to see you! What a horrible way to be treated by HT. I'm so sorry that happened to you.

    My feelings towards Kroger are mixed. I really like their store on 64 in Apex, especially their produce. It's just too far from us now. Our closest store, the Garner store on 70, is just awful. It's dirty, the shelves are bare, the produce racks are empty, and good luck getting a parking place.

    The bread smells wonderful - not sure if it will be French toast or grilled sandwiches today .
    I get a link for my Best Customer coupons via email.
    I have also received 3 booklets/folders of coupons this week !!
    I know many of you do not like Kroger but my experiences and savings at Kroger have been wonderful .
    My average savings is 57% before the various cash back/rebate programs
    ( high 72% and low 37%)-
    Kroger and it family of stores across the country have been very friendly and helpful over the years . When my family came back home after my Naval service ( 28 years ago), HT was not so easy to deal with - one employee looked at us and said we could not afford to shop there ! I am glad to see it different now.

    Hurray :) It seems Kroger now has the website working again. After several failed attempts this afternoon, I was able to load the Friday Freebie around 6:30 pm. (Don't you imagine their tech team is ready for a weekend after today's efforts!?)
    Very appreciative for this wonderful Sara Lee bread coupon!! Can't wait to try it!

    I use Kroger's digital coupons regularly and love the convenience. They frequently offer digital "Best Customer" coupons for bonus discounts (usually near the end of the digital coupon list). Plus, Kroger mails paper coupons to me for great surprise savings. Then, each purchase earns points for gasoline savings, as well.
    A BIG thanks to Kroger for so many wonderful savings!

    Glad you got it ThomasG! Have you had the bread yet? It looks really good.

    Right now, their website is not working and the digital coupons cannot be loaded. There is an error message indicating that they are aware of the issue and they are working on it.

    I loaded mine to my card with no problem.
    My receipt shows the full price of the bread was deducted along with a $.50 "best customer reward" !

    I am sure if you contact Kroger they will fix it.

    Oh no! I hope it is up and running again soon. Thanks for the heads up that their website is not working correctly.

  • Em2s Apr 29, 2016

    I think you're right...I was unsuccessful at logging on around 9:20-ish this morning and again just now at 2:10 pm.

    I guess the free Artesano bread broke Kroger's website, lol. Hope they get it back up soon.

    This is one of the better Friday freebies they have offered in a while!
