Here's how to work the Kroger Mega Event

Kroger has a sale this week, and for every 10 specified items you buy, you get $5 off your total purchase. Basically, you get .50 cents off each item. Well, I just got back from the grocery and thought I would share how I worked the Mega Event this week. I purchased exactly 30 of the mega event items, which gave me $15 off my total. You have to buy in quantities of 10 for this sale to work out right.

10 Del Monte tomatoes (2 coupons for $1 off 5 cans)
8 Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom soups (4 coupons for .40 cents off 2 cans)
2 boxes Nestle hot cocoa
1 Hot Pocket
5 cans Swanson chicken broth (found a coupon that someone left on the shelf for .50 off 5 cans)
3 boxes Auntie Anne's macaroni and cheese (organic section)
1 box Stove Top stuffing

Keep in mind that Kroger doubles coupons with a value of .50 cents or less.
Total cost for all 30 items after coupons and discount =  approximately $10
I think I worked this sale pretty good, don't you?

way to go! We are moving to where there is a kroger and no publix, so I am going to have to learn how to coupon at kroger. Do you find good sales apart from their Mega Sales?

We don't have Publix here in Louisville, so I mostly coupon shop at Kroger. You can get pretty good deals, especially when you match coupons up with the mega sales or 10 for $10 sales. At different times in the past, I have subscribed to, and they give you a list of all the advertised and unadvertised sales with matching coupons. It's a nice service and it helps you learn what is a good deal at Kroger. If you've never used The Grocery Game before, you can get a free four week trial subscription on their website.

By the way, I've been impressed with the coupon deals you've posted on your website. From the looks of it, Publix is a great place to shop. Too bad we don't have one in Louisville.
