Kroger's Mega Coupon Event

It has been a long time since I have had a really good/cheap shopping experience and I wanted to make sure I shared this one with you so you can go to Kroger and experience the same as me.I did this in 3 transactions. Could have been 2 if I had all my coupons in my purse (opposed to some in my car). I did technically do this all in one trip though - in between each shopping trip I would place everything in my trunk
and then organize what I was doing next.


Right now at Kroger when you buy any 10 participating items you receive $5.00 off which equals to $0.50 off each item.
You can only do this deal twice per transaction meaning you need to split up your order if you want more than 20 items.
I have messed up in the pass so I suggest you watch and count as the cashier  rings up all your items. There will be a '<+' sign next to each item that qualifies.


Here's what I bought for $17.17:
(Keep in mind I do not pay tax on food in KY)
All prices are after the $5.00 off.
All coupons up to $0.50 are doubled.

  • 7 Boxes of Mom's Best Cereal $0.99 each
  • Used 2 $1.00 off coupons = 4 @ $0.50/each and 3 @ $0.99/each
  • 7 Red Gold Tomatoes $0.59 each
  • 3 Kleenex Tissues $0.99 each
  • Used 3 $0.50 off coupons = FREE
  • 13 Hunts Tomatoes $0.59/each
  • Used 1 $0.45 off 3, 2 $1.00 off 2, 2 $50 off 3 coupons
  • 9 balance Bars $0.49/each
  • Used 3 $1.00/3 coupons = $0.19 each
  • 1 Frank's Hot Sauce $2.09
  • Used $0.45 off coupon = $1.09
    Non Mega Event items:

  • 4 Reach Floss $1.05
  • Used 4 $1.00 off coupons = $0.05/each
  • Luna Bar $1.19
  • Used FREE coupon = FREE
  • Bare Naked Granola $3.85
  • Used $2 off coupon = $1.85
  • Bumble Bee Tuna $1.00
  • Used $0.50 off coupon = FREE
  • 3 Tuna $1.59 (I thought this was $1.25 - wouldn't have bought it had I known)
  • Used 3 $0.50 off coupons = $0.59/each
Not bad for less than $20!
All items I bought are items I usually use with the exception of the Balance Bars which I am hoping Matt will like to eat.
Wish I had more coupons to get a few more items.


Happy shopping!
