Kroger Gift Card Giveaway - CLOSED

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you have probably heard me mention the fact that Kroger is my favorite store to shop at for groceries. I have been blogging about Kroger almost from the beginning (of this blog) because I shop there weekly and because I feel they offer a great variety of ways to save money on groceries.

I was super excited when I was offered the chance to receive a $30 gift card to use during the Mega Event that is currently going on at Kroger (through 9/2/09), not only because I would be receiving $30, but because one of you will as well!

I completed my challenge this morning, and you can see my purchases in the above photo. I spent $33.60 out of pocket on the 20 items seen above after the Mega Event discount and coupons. That averages out to just $1.68 per item! And while I think that the Mega Event is a great promo on it's own, you really get the biggest bang for your buck when you combine your manufacturer's coupons with the sale!

I love stocking up on non-perishable items during events like these because of the value. We now have enough granola/cereal bars to last us for at least 2 months, along with a few additional staple pantry items that will come in handy for both dinner and snack time.

For more info on the Mega Event and to view a complete list of coupon match ups, read my post here.

What am I giving away?

1 winner will receive a $30 Kroger Gift Card

I LOVE Kroger as well. My Mom and Dad are on a very fixed income at the moment. My husband and I have been able to actually cut our grocery budget since I've started couponing and also help stock my parents shelves because of the values. I'm still new to couponing but I LOVE being able to memorize my store and know that I'm getting the great deals every week even if I don't have time to shop around.

I love shopping at Kroger because I do not have a Whole Foods around and really love that Kroger has an organic section in their store.

I love Kroger because I can go every couple of days and they always have Nutritous and Organic things for my baby on Manager Mark down that I can pair with the coupon books that they actually carry in store, and I can grab as many coupon books as I need becasue they never limit my coups!I don't need to organize my own coups to save big. Kroger actually makes eating organic cheaper than not!

I also love shopping at Kroger becasue they double coups at my location. If I can find an item on sale and add a double coup it makes for a really exciting day as well as double coups for organic markdowns!

I love shopping at Kroger stores because of the gas discount and they hardly ever give me any problems with using coupons. A few times when I have forgotten to use a coupon, they have still given me the discount. They are great! tawna21(@)hotmail(Dot)com

I love that Kroger will, occasionally, increase the value of coupons above the standard double up to and including $.39, etc. Last Saturday the store did this and I saved $100.00 with coupons alone!!!! The store is clean and organized and the employees are VERY helpful and I can do almost all of my errand running in one place, including filling the car's gas tank!

Carrie said...

I've been shopping at Kroger since I started working there when I was 17! I love them because they are always clean; their shelves are neat and their aisles never overcrowded with things that get in the way; they double coupons up to 99 cents; their fruits and veggies are always fresh (I always see fruit flies in the fruits at Wal-Mart - blah!); and I am super excited that we have a new one opening up less than 5 minutes from my house... with a gas station!!! So I can start using my fuel points again! Yay!

I have always found the people in the produce dept to be way more helpful at Kroger than any of our other local grocery stores. And it's clean!
