Better Than FREE Snicker Eggs at Kroger!

My husband was wonderful to watch my kiddos yesterday so I could have 5 blissful hours of mommy time. I used that time to do my favorite activity, COUPON SHOPPING!
It was a GREAT day and I was so exhausted I went to bed at 9 pm and didn't get anything posted, lol.
So hopefully I will spend some time today getting my deals posted.

Right now Kroger has a catalina promotion for a $5 coupon off the purchase of a gift card(excludes Kroger cards, and prepaid debit cards cat ends 4/23). Just purchase $15 worth of Mars/M&M products(Dove, M&Ms, Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, Snickers, Twix) and you earn the coupon.
Well, lucky for us todays Red Plum insert has $1/2 Mars Easter candy! Kroger sells the Snicker eggs for .50 each, Whoop! That means free candy AND if you have enough coupons, free $5 toward a gift card! (not to mention the gas rewards you will be earning by shopping Kroger)
So, I got 30 Snicker eggs and used 15 coupons and got my $5 (don't fret, the store I went to had over 9 boxes of these Snicker eggs, so not even close to wiping the shelves)
Or, I have heard word that the M&Ms will be going on sale this coming week, so wait to use these coupons and combine with some M&Ms regularly priced .89, but on sale for .50. Use the buy 2 get 1 free coupon from 3-13 RP to still snag a decent deal!
(I hear word catalina is working on presale prices)

Ex scenario (assuming you get at least 5 papers)
10 Snicker eggs $5
12 M&Ms $6 (but should count as 10.68)
-$5 for eggs (5 coupons)
-$2 for M&Ms (4 b2g1 coupons @ .50 sale price)
= $4 oop and earn $5 off gift card plus have lots of candy for Easter or donation!

Thanks to my friend Dealz for the cat and sale information :)

Nice I was wondering how do you use the $5 is it just 5 off a gift card can you use more then on to buy one gift card ?!

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

Ebony it says limit one per purchase so it would just be $5 off one gift card.

so, Stephanie tell me the best way to use this $5 credit please

sorry elle, got super busy at work today so could not get on to answer you. I plan to purchase a card for a store I already shop. Even if it is a $15 or $25 card, I will be saving $5 instantly from the coupon. Most likely I will use mine at Target since I shop there and I can always use that for my oop when I run their deals
