This week wasKroger Mega Event which happens fairly frequently. You get $5.00 off when you purchase 10 participating products. Since I only shop for a household for two, it really has to be the right combination of products in order for me to take advantage of their Mega Events. Kroger also matches coupons up to a face value of .50. So, for example, if you have a coupon for .35 off, you actually get .70 off.
Kroger Spent $6.50 and Saved $22.00
I didn't get anything for free but nearly everything was really cheap. Never any deals on bananas - so sad. I purchased 13 products, presented 9 coupons and several were .50 or less so matched by Kroger. Ten products qualified as "mega deals" so got $5.00 off my total. This was my second strike this week. My first trip I spent 23.00 and saved 40.00.
So, what would I have gotten for $6.50 if I had not taken advantage of the "Mega Deal" and used coupons? Three items: a lousy loaf of bread, some Party Mix, and evaporated milk.
If you need help getting started or have found deals yourself this week - would love to hear from you - leave a comment below. - Rebecca
