2017 12:38 pm

Snip20130427_7

Let me start out by saying that this has NOT been personally confirmed to ME by Kroger, NOR has there been an actual press release yet (maybe next week). BUT, many of you have shared a story from the Knoxville News Sentinel where is was confirmed.

Kroger is discontinuing its double coupon policy and eliminating its weekly senior discount days.

This will become effective March 15th in all Kroger stores in the Nashville region, which includes 96 stores in Middle and East Tennessee, Southern Kentucky and Northern Alabama.

That means beginning March 15th your paper coupons will only be accepted at FACE value.

Follow the instructions to Find your Kroger region.

Another Kroger affiliate store has announced that it will no longer be doubling coupons as of August 24th, 2016. Tuesday, August 23rd will be the last day of double coupons for King Soopers (found mostly in Colorado). They will only accept paper coupons at FACE value. There are promises of lower pricing to help offset this new policy change.

4-27-768x328

Kroger Cincinnati/Dayton Division Offers Everyday
Three Cent Discount to Popular Fuel Program

CINCINNATI – April 1, 2016. Kroger Cincinnati/Dayton division is pleased to announce the addition of an everyday three cent per gallon discount to its fuel program.

This exciting addition allows customers to receive a three cent per gallon discount on fuel at Kroger, with no fuel points required.

How does it work?
· Customers simply scan their Plus Card or enter their Alternate ID.
· If a customer has accumulated fuel points, they can choose to redeem those fuel points or three cents off. For example, if a customer has 100 fuel points they can choose to receive 10 cents off or three cents off. They will not receive 13 cents off.
· If a customer does not have any fuel points available, they will automatically receive the three cent discount after scanning their Plus Card.
· There is no limit to the number of times a customer can use their three cent discount – it’s an everyday discount.

“Our fuel program is really popular with our customers and we are excited to offer another way for them to save money,” says Jeff Talbot, vice president of Merchandising, Kroger Cincinnati/Dayton division. “We know that every little bit helps. This everyday discount allows customers to save at the pump if they run out of fuel points during the month.”

Fry’s Foods (Arizona Kroger Affiliate) | No More Double Coupons

2014 10:08 am

fry's no double coupons

Another Kroger affiliate store has announced that it will no longer be doubling coupons as of TODAY, October 1st, 2014. Fry’s Foods in Arizona will now only accept paper coupons at FACE value. There are promises of lower pricing to help offset this new policy change.

I know this is very disappointing news, especially since those stores used to make every coupon worth a dollar. This is going to be an adjustment, but if you’ve been with me for any amount of time you know that you can get AMAZING deals with no doubles required so CHIN UP! :)

The regions that DO still double are as follows:

  • King Soopers (affiliate store in CO)
  • Knoxville TN area stores?

Follow the instructions to Find your Kroger region.

News Release:

“Fry’s Food Stores has announced a comprehensive price reduction plan, investing millions of dollars to reduce thousands of prices across the store. Fry’s started reducing prices throughout September, and all new low prices will officially be in place starting October 1.

The Fry’s team carefully selected items that are frequently found in most customers’ shopping carts to ensure all customers would benefit from the price reductions.

The items range from fruits and vegetables to grocery and household staples. National and private label brands are included in the widespread price reduction.

The program includes a significant number of lower prices in natural foods and organics, reinforcing a rapid increase in natural foods sales over the last decade. That trend is accelerated with the highly successful launch of the Simple Truth line of products, a Kroger exclusive. Fry’s is rewarding natural foods and organic customers as part of this initiative as well.

As part of this investment in lower prices for all customers, Fry’s has made the decision to stop its current coupon promotion (every coupon equals $1 or double couponing in Yuma’s two stores) effective Oct. 1, 2014. The 120 Fry’s stores will continue to accept manufacturer coupons, digital coupons, e-coupons, valid printables and Catalina coupons at face value.

“We continue to leverage our scale as one of the largest retailers to work with suppliers to reduce costs, and in turn pass those savings along to our customers,” said JoEllen Lynn, Fry’s spokesperson.

NO New Kroger Corporate Coupon Policy! (Information Directly from Kroger)

2014 7:49 pm

kroger coupon policy

UPDATE as of 9/2/14: Jackie from Kroger gave me a call today and let me know that while there is NO new policy, this was an internal memo sent to employees in parts of the Southwest region that was not intended for public distribution. Again, NO new corporate policy has been enacted and as always – ask your store manager what their policy is before you shop. 

I’m sure you all have been waiting all weekend for me to make a statement on this so-called new Kroger coupon policy, but in an effort to be responsible, I didn’t want to say a word until I heard from my Kroger contact. I received hundreds of emails/messages from you guys wondering what this was all about and I apologize that I was not able to answer each one individually. Instead, I decided to finally address it here in a blog post.

I did hear back from my contact yesterday, so I can finally speak! First of all, let’s back up for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about. On Friday evening, another blogger “leaked” an internal memo that was meant for Kroger employees that talked about changes to what and how they accept coupons. Basically all amazing things, saying things like no limits on how many coupons they will accept, don’t check expiration dates, etc..  I am not posting the link as to not perpetuate this information.  Why? Well…

Here is the response I received this weekend from Jackie, Media and Government Relations Manager for the The Kroger Company Columbus Division, who is also the direct contact for bloggers. (And thank you Jackie for answering your email over this holiday weekend!)

Snip20140901_64

 

With that being said, let me remind you that the Kroger Corporate Coupon Policy already allows their store managers to set their own limits on how many coupons to accept, along with other policy issues like accepting expired coupons (although not mentioned specifically, this would be covered under the blanket statement). Many of the Columbus OH stores NEVER set a limit on how many coupons you can use and they’ve even been known to post signage as you walk in the door stating that they will accept expired coupons  up to a week after expiration…although this is never something I would promote.  All of these things vary from STORE to STORE. While this memo would definitely be a positive adjustment to the existing policy, and very well could be something SOME stores are adopting…nothing has been enacted corporate wide.

My advice to you AS ALWAYS is to ASK your store manager what their policy is on coupon limits BEFORE you load up your carts, as – AGAIN, this varies from store to store.

When and if Kroger CORPORATE changes the coupon policy, I will be sure to post that information based on what I receive directly from them…not some obscure internal memo.

A (good!) Change to the Kroger Digital Coupon Policy

2014 2:47 pm

kroger digital coupon policy

As you may already know, Kroger Digital coupons CANNOT be stacked with a paper coupon because they are BOTH manufacturer coupons and you can only apply one coupon per item. In the past, the Kroger Digital coupons ALWAYS took precedence over the paper coupon so you had to be careful about what you loaded. You didn’t want to get stuck with a lower value digital coupon coming off your order when you had a higher value paper coupon. Well, GREAT NEWS!! The system is getting a bit more sophisticated where it now will recognize if your paper coupon is higher value and will allow you to use that instead of the digital.

Example:

If you have loaded a digital coupon for $0.50 to your Kroger Plus card but want to use a paper coupon for $1, the system will reverse the digital coupon & apply the paper coupon to the order! You will not see this reversal on the receipt, it will just show that the higher value was taken off the item.

You can read all about Kroger Digital coupons along with my recommendations HERE.

Kroger Columbus | No Double Coupons

2014 10:02 am

Kroger Columbus | No Double Coupons

Well, folks. We all knew it was coming eventually and it was good while it lasted, but….

This week, Kroger informed me that the Kroger Columbus/Great Lakes region (my personal Kroger region) will no longer be doubling coupons. This was officially announced this morning and will be taking effect May 1st. That means your paper coupons will only be accepted at FACE value.

I know this is very disappointing news, especially for you “high doublers” ($0.55 and over), and I totally feel your pain. This is going to be a huge adjustment. But, before you vow to boycott Kroger altogether, let me be the voice of reason. I encourage you to go through my posts from the last few weeks and notice that the MAJORITY of deals do not require any doubling. In fact, if you browse my current Must-Do Deals list, you’ll see that you can get AMAZING deals with no doubles required!! You may find that even after taking off the extra $0.50 or $0.60 out of the equation, you will still consider the final cost a stockup price.

Kroger Columbus | No Double Coupons

Do me a favor and go through your Kroger receipts and look at the BONUS Savings to see how much of your savings came from doubling so you have a good idea of how much doubling has really saved you.  As good as double coupons SEEM…the numbers just don’t scream “unbelievable”!

Of course if you need to vent, feel free to do so in the comments below. If you can’t complain here, where can ya!? :)  Maybe those of you who have already been through this can give these Columbus/Great Lakes region-ers some moral support. 

Official Press Release

Columbus Division Announces Store-Wide Price Reductions

Thousands of prices reduced in produce, natural foods, organics and grocery, benefitting 100% of customers

Double coupons eliminated May 1st

Other savings programs continue, including: $4/$10 generic prescriptions, fuel rewards up to $1.00 per gallon, digital coupons, loyalty mailers and weekly specials

COLUMBUS, OH (March 28, 2014) – Kroger’s Columbus Division has announced a comprehensive price reduction plan, investing millions of dollars to reduce prices across the store. Kroger merchandisers started cutting even more prices March 3, and all new low prices will officially be in place by April 2.

The Kroger team carefully selected items that are frequently found in most customers’ shopping carts to ensure all customers would benefit from the price reductions over time.

Kroger is reducing a significant number of produce prices. These lower prices also will encourage customers to increase the amount of healthy, nutritious produce in their diet.

The program includes a significant number of lower prices in natural foods and organics, reinforcing a rapid increase in natural foods sales over the last decade. Natural foods sales have more than doubled at Kroger stores in the last four years. That trend accelerated with the highly successful launch of the Simple Truth line of products, a Kroger exclusive. Kroger is rewarding natural foods and organic customers as part of this initiative.

As part of this investment in lower prices for all customers, Kroger’s Columbus Division has made the decision to stop doubling coupons effective Thursday, May 1, 2014.  Kroger stores in the region will continue to accept manufacturer coupons, valid printables and valid electronic coupons at face value. In the Columbus Division, less than 2% of all customers are what Kroger categorizes as “heavy coupon users,” and 86% of customers are not even using double coupons at all.

“Double coupons originated decades ago, in an era when none of the current online and electronic coupon options were available to customers and smartphones did not exist,” said Jackie Siekmann, spokesperson for Kroger’s Columbus Division. “Kroger will continue to evolve to meet the expectations of 21st century shoppers.”

Kroger’s investment in lowering thousands of prices for all customers will total at least three times the value currently received by a very small number of customers by doubling coupons.

“With the economic downturn in 2008, The Kroger Co. responded by reducing prices throughout our stores, benefitting both our customers and associates,” said Siekmann. “We continue to leverage our scale as one of the largest retailers in the world to work with suppliers to reduce costs, and in turn pass those savings along to our customers.”

The latest campaign to reduce every day prices is an extension of the ongoing investment. Some examples of the new pricing include:

Roma Tomatoes: former retail $1.29/lb., new price $.99/lb.

Nabisco Oreo 18 oz.: former retail $3.19, new price $2.99

Kroger Peanut Butter 28 oz.: former retail $3.29, new price $2.99

Kibbles ‘N Bits Dog Food 17.6 oz.: former retail $12.89, new price $10.99

In addition to price reductions, Kroger continues to offer customers comprehensive savings opportunities including fuel rewards, $4/$10 generic prescriptions, loyalty mailers tailored to individual customers’ shopping habits, weekly specials and digital coupons.

Sale Cycle Change for Columbus/Great Lakes Kroger Region (April 2nd)

2014 5:46 pm

 kroger columbus sale cycle

Attention Columbus/Great Lakes Kroger region-ers! In case you didn’t notice the announcement in the weeky Kroger ad, I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that beginning April 2nd, the Columbus Division that currently runs Mon-Sun will now be on a Wed-Tue cycle.

From Kroger:

“We believe it will allow customers to better plan their weekend shopping trips, as they will have a “heads up” on specials. All customers will still receive ads the same way they did before, and the same day as they have in the past, they simply won’t be effective until Wednesday. With this change, customers can plan ahead for their weekend trip to the store, or shop early (Wed-Fri) to take advantage of that weeks’ sales. Either way, it’s still 7 days of savings. This change also allows our stores to make sure they have the items our customers want when they are shopping. In the past, Sundays were the last day of the ad cycle, and our stores had to prepare to change displays and tags for Monday’s new sales. With Sunday being one of the busiest shopping days of the week, it didn’t make sense to keep it as the last day in the ad cycle. Many of the divisions across the company are making this change.”

What does this mean for Kroger Krazy? Well, for one…certain posts like the Weekly Ad Matchup and Must-Do deals will be published on new days.

At the moment, both Cincinnati and Michigan Kroger regions still operate on a Mon-Sun sale cycle but are rumored to change this sometime in May. I have not heard anything about Fred Meyer (which runs Sun-Sat), Jay-C Foods (which runs Thu-Wed) or the Central region (which runs Thu-Wed). Hopefully these regions follow suit in the near future, as that will make things much easier when trying to figure out if the deals I post are current for you or not.
