I thought this was too good to be true, but it wasn’t! General Mills is doing a “Buy 5 Get $5 on your next purchase” event at Kroger, which makes for some VERY good stock-up deals. Check out the deals I got below:
Betty Crocker Boxed Potatoes: -$0.50 (Yes, I made $0.50 for purchasing it!)
Used $0.50 coupon off 2, which doubled
(We don’t eat these much anymore so I got these to donate.)
Old El Paso Tortillas: $0.10 per package
Used $0.60/3 coupon, that doubled surprisingly
(This is good for refried beans, taco shells, and more. I just chose to stock up on tortillas because that’s what we use most.)
Hamburger Helper: $0.25
Used $0.75/3 coupon
(We don’t eat these but I bought them to donate to my work’s Food Drive for the Main Street Mission, where they are asking for pastas among other items.)
Pillsbury Toaster Streudel: $0.89
Used $0.50/2 coupon, doubled
Lucky Charms: $1.86
Used $1.00/3 coupon
Many more items are part of this event. You can get a full list at http://www.krogerkrazy.com. Here are a few things to note:
1. Be sure and buy in multiples of 5s to get the full benefit.
2. The $5 off your next purchase is only good for 1 week! I recommend splitting your purchase into two transactions and use coupons from the first to pay for the second (this is what I did) and/or plan an additional shopping trip to Kroger before they expire.
3. All coupons I listed above I obtained from SmartSource inserts (in the Sunday statewide newspaper). Most of them came from the insert from September 9th.
Also a few other Kroger deals to note:
Crest toothpaste is $1.00 (including Kids), and if you use the $0.50 coupon from the P&G insert from 9/30, you will get it free. By keeping an eye on deals like this, I haven’t paid for toothpaste in almost a year!
Milk is still $2.99.
Summer squash and zucchini are on sale for $0.77/lb – this is a great price!
