If you've been paying attention a little, you probably noticed that Pepperidge Farm Goldfish are going to be $0.99 with the upcoming Mega Event. And then you remembered that we still have a $1.00/1 Goldfish 5x Kroger Digital coupon that doesn't expire until the 28th. And then you got really excited because that means they're FREE! Five of them! Well, maybe. Maybe not. See, in the past this hasn't worked out so well for us. For some reason, when an item is part of the mega AND has an overlapping limit 5 digital coupon available, the entire coupon value does not come off correctly. Something about the way they are coded and the system not allowing the price to dip lower than zero. We've tested this several times, and if the coupon is for $1/1, it will only take $0.50 off (for example).
BUT, but…just in case it DOES work I wanted to tell you this ahead of time, because by the time we are able to test it on Wednesday morning when the sale starts, the coupon will no longer be available to load. You HAVE to load it now before the new sale cycle starts and the limit 5 digitals all disappear. So, here's your heads up. Load the coupon now, and we'll test it first thing Wednesday morning and update you. Hopefully they'll surprise us and I'll have to eat my words.
Oh, and for those of you asking about the $1.50/1 General Mills cereal digital coupon…same thing. The coupon probably won't work. AND, they've updated that coupon with size restrictions (larger boxes only) and the coupon doesn't match the sizes that are part of the mega.
