Facts for Shopping Kroger

Regional Prices and Policies

Kroger’s prices vary by region, even by store within the same area, but generally they are reasonably close to the listed price.

Internet Printable Coupons

Kroger does accept internet printable coupons that meet the following criteria:

  • The coupon must scan properly at checkout.
  • Kroger does not accept internet printable coupons for free products.
  • B1G1 Internet printable coupons are accepted.
  • Internet printable coupons must be legible and not blurry. Coupons will be rejected if they appear altered in any way.
  • Kroger does not accept internet printable coupons that are over 75% of the products value. For example, if the item is $2.25 and the coupon is for $2 off, it is unlikely to be accepted. If the product is $5, a $2 coupon will be accepted.

Mega Event

Kroger often holds Mega Events. This means that you need to buy a certain amount of participating items to receive a discount at checkout. There are usually more items included in a Mega Event then listed in the weekly ad. Look for tags in the store that say participating item.

10/$10 sales are not Mega Events. Most of the time when Kroger advertises a 10/$10 sale it is a marketing gimmick. You can buy just one item and get the $1 price.

B1G1 Sale

B1G1 items ring up at half price at Kroger. You can just purchase one item and it will ring up at 50% off.

Electronic Coupons

Kroger now states that electronic coupons are not to be combined with paper coupons. The biggest issue is that eCoupons will come off automatically- even if you intend to use a paper coupon. Only load digital coupons that are higher value than your paper coupons.
