Kroger Coupon Policy Basics

Doubles coupons up to .50

Many Kroger stores only allow 2 identical coupons per day (check with your store about their limits)

No total limits of coupons doubled per day

Senior Citizen’s Day on Tuesday’s: If you are born on or before 1954, receive a 5% discount on total grocery bill (excludes alcohol, tobacco and prescriptions)

Kroger digital e-coupons can be found at the link in the box above.

Mega Event!: Save $5 when you buy 10 participating items. You must buy 10 in the same transaction to get the $5 off at the register. You can do more than one set of 10 participating items in the same transaction and get $5 off for each set of ten items. Basically, you get .50 off per item when you buy 10 and get $5 off at the register.

Here are some of the better deals from the ad. Keep in mind that there are other mega event participating items not listed in the ad so bring your coupons with you so you can take advantage of the unadvertised deals. If you find any other deals, please post them! I am not sure I will make it to Kroger this week, so feel free to share your deals and help each other find those good unadvertised deals!
