Gearing up for Kroger Mega Sale

Ok, I don’t normally do this, but here goes. I like to read the other Kroger forums on HCW since most other regions start their ads on Sunday. This usually gives us a good idea here in TX what might be on sale and what coupons to start clipping, printing or trading for. It is never 100% accurate, but we do get a pretty good idea of what will be on sale.
Well, this week, Kroger is starting a new mega sale. You purchase 10 participating items, and they automatically take $5 off your bill. The other regions are reporting this is unlimited per transaction.
Now, many wonder how I seem to have it all together the first day of a sale and seem to have all the correct coupons with me. Well, here are the items I see have potential as freebies or money makers. I start the printing and clipping so come Wednesday, I am set to go and catch the sale the first day.
Compiled is my list of finds from all the sources I read(there are far too many to thank here, but HCW had a big part in helping with this list!) I am sure I will find more when I walk the store Wednesday looking for unadvertised goodies, but this gives you a view into my madness!

SpeedStick should be $1 after the promo, print the $1.50 for Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick(use zip code 33907) at coupons.com to make .50 for buying it

Chex Mix should be $1.49 after the promo, print the .50 for Chex Mix at coupons.com and load you shortcuts or cellfire coupon to make .21 for buying it

Softsoap should be $1 after the promo, print the $1 off Softsoap(use zip 45435) at coupons.com to make it free

Sobe lifewater should be .49 after the promo, print this bogo to get both free after promo.

Start clipping:
Playtex Handsaver gloves should be .50 after promo. Clip your $1 coupons from 5-3 SS to get paid .50 to buy them

Temptations cat treats should be .99 after the promo. Clip your $.50 coupons from 6/7 RP to get them for free

Rolaids 30 count should be $1 after the promo. Clip your $1 coupons from 6/7 RP to get them for free

Thanks for all your help! You've helped my family Big Time! I also believe there is a Cellfire loadable for the Speed Stick. Keep the great deals coming!

Zena, thank you for the kind words. There is a loadable for the speedstick 24/7 but others are reporting it is NOT part of the mega sale. Will be a GREAT money maker if it is!

I always try to get my q's together before these sales by reading diff blogs but you appear to always find those hidden deals that make my attempt look like nothing! I am not mad at you for that =) keep it coming!

got my kroger circular early int he mail today. just had a quick look, but didn't see the speedstick deodorant, and the chex mix is $1.49 after .50 off WYB 10. Also, philadelphia cream cheese is .99 after .50 off, and there are $1/1 and $1/2 coupons out there!

Jennifer said...

I have a question. Can you do more than one buy 10 items get $5 off per transaction? Or do I need to do a different transaction every time I buy 10 items to get the $5 off? Thanks!

ZM (zoeys_mom) said...

Jennifer, you can do multiples in the same transaction, but sometimes it will benefit you to break them up due to Krogers limit on double/triple coupons. You will need to find out the d/t rules for your local store.
