BIG CHANGE to Kroger Mega Events

In the past, a Kroger Mega meant that you HAD TO purchase the quantity of items specified in that particular promo in order to receive the mega sale discount. For example, “Buy 5 participating items, Get $5 off instantly”. You had to purchase in increments of 5 (mix & match) in order to receive the additional $1 off per item. BUT, but…

Did you see this new wording in the Kroger Weekly Ad? Based on customer feedback, A BIG change is coming to our Kroger Mega Events starting on Wednesday, March 18th!  Instead of requiring you to buy in increments of 5, AFTER the first 5 you purchase, all other participating items will reflect the $1 off per item mega savings. So if you buy 6, you save $6. If you buy 7, you save $7.

This eliminates the need to keep count (after 5 items) and fear missing out on your mega savings! You won’t find yourself hiding in a lonely aisle counting your cart full of items to make sure you have multiples of 5. You won’t have to visit customer service to correct the problem because you miscounted. You won’t have to worry if a woohoo item will count as mega or not (because you never know!). I was also thinking that it will make using Kroger Pickup (formerly Clicklist) a lot less risky when they have to substitute mega items.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited about this new change?

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Margie

March 17, 202003:22 pm

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

Susanne

March 16, 202008:51 pm

LOVE THIS! Is this all stores?

Sandra Williams

March 16, 202010:40 am

Love it.. Love krogers savings.

Katheryn Livengood

March 15, 202010:14 pm

What a great thought. Whoever came up with that is indeed my friend. THANKS!

Dorothy

March 15, 202010:02 pm

This is awesome. Thanks Kroger!!

Melissa

March 15, 202009:15 pm

Our Fry's started doing it this way awhile ago! It's great.

Theresa Adkins

March 15, 202007:49 pm

About time

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

How Do 5X Kroger Digital Coupons Work with a Kroger Mega Event?

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Many times a 5x Kroger Digital Event and a Kroger Mega Event (like buy 5, save $5) will overlap by one day. I wanted to give you a full explanation as to why and how this happens.

Most Kroger region’s sale cycles run Wednesday through Tuesday; however, the Kroger Central region, for example runs Thursday through Wednesday. So, the coupons won’t expire until Thursday for everyone, allowing that region to have access to the coupons for the duration of their sale cycle. When this happens, you are able to stack both promotions to get some really great deals on the first day of the Mega Event! Everyone except the Central region of course, because their mega sale hasn’t started yet.

Due to the way 5x Kroger Digital coupons are coded, however…you will need to understand what works and what doesn’t work, so I wanted to break it down for you.

  • IF by using the 5x Kroger Digital coupon the price of the item does NOT dip below zero after the mega pricing is deducted, the coupon AND the mega discount will both come off at checkout.
  • IF by combining the 5x digital coupon and the mega savings causes the price to dip below zero (like with the Goldfish) the $1 off per item mega discount will NOT come off…just the coupon will deduct. These will also not count towards your total mega items.
  • REGULAR Limit 1 Kroger Digital coupons WILL deduct along with mega savings as long as the price before the mega discount is as much as or more than the value of the coupon.

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Margie

March 17, 202003:22 pm

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

Susanne

March 16, 202008:51 pm

LOVE THIS! Is this all stores?

Sandra Williams

Love it.. Love krogers savings.

Katheryn Livengood

What a great thought. Whoever came up with that is indeed my friend. THANKS!

Dorothy

March 15, 202010:02 pm

This is awesome. Thanks Kroger!!

Melissa

March 15, 202009:15 pm

Our Fry's started doing it this way awhile ago! It's great.

Theresa Adkins

March 15, 202007:49 pm

About time

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : rho[email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

Kroger ClickList

Have you tried Kroger ClickList yet?

ClickList is a phenomenal service Kroger offers where you order your groceries online, choose a pickup time and pick them up at the store…without having to leave your car! I’m already hooked!

It’s so easy! Just go HERE and register or login to your Kroger.com account. Then, simply browse for the items you want to purchase and add them to your cart. During the ordering process, you’ll be asked to select a pickup time and location. At your scheduled time, pull up at the Online Ordering drive-through (there will be signs to help guide you). A friendly Associate will assist you and load your groceries right into your car. And off you go!

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions.

Can I use Kroger Pickup on my mobile device?

Yes. You can access the Kroger Pickup service on your mobile device. However, Kroger Pickup is not yet available on the Mobile App.

What are “Favorites”?

This feature tracks your most commonly purchased items. You can browse through your Favorites and add them to your cart for quicker, more convenient shopping. Your Favorites may change slightly from week to week based on the items you purchase.

What are the fees for using Kroger Pickup?

The service fee is waived for your first 3 orders! Fees vary by region for Pickup. You can find more information online at checkout, or visit your local store for details. Trust me, you will definitely save this much (or more!) by not stepping foot into the store and succumbing to those impulse purchases!

Do I earn fuel points when I use Kroger Pickup?

Yes! Kroger Pickup orders count toward your fuel points just like in-store purchases.

When can I get my order?

When you place your order, you will be asked to select a 1-hour window (between 8 am – 9 pm, 7 days a week) to pick up your order. You can reserve a timeslot up to three days in advance.

What items are included in the Kroger Pickup service?

Kroger Pickup includes no minimum or maximum orders.  There are over 40,000 items to choose from, including over-the-counter health and beauty products, produce, refrigerated and frozen items, meat, seafood, wine and beer. Some seasonal items, apparel, hot foods, liquor and pharmacy prescriptions are excluded.

Can I include special instructions with my order?

Yes! You can include instructions like how ripe you’d like your bananas or avocados, the specific weight of your bag of cherries, how thin you’d like your deli meat sliced, etc.

How do the products stay fresh until I pick them up?

Perishable items like meat and produce are selected by Associates shortly before your order is scheduled for pickup. Your items will be stored for maximum freshness, including refrigeration for items that require it.

What do I do when I arrive at my pickup location?

When you arrive at your store, follow the signs to the Kroger Pickup area and call the number on the sign to let them know you’ve arrived. An Associate will bring your order out to your vehicle. The Kroger employee will load your groceries, and you’ll be on your way in minutes!

For the safety of our Customers and Associates, Pickup orders accept credit or debit cards only. Cash, check, and gift cards cannot be accepted. We’re currently unable to accept government benefits (including WIC and SNAP) as payment.

When you place your order, you’ll see an estimated total at checkout. Your card will be charged for a final total amount when you receive your order. Prices shown when you place your order may differ at the time you receive your order due to coupons, substitutions, taxes (if applicable) and weighted items.

Please have ready the form of payment you used online, as well as a backup credit or debit card.

Why are prices estimated versus actual?

Online prices reflect the price in-store on the day you place your order. However, prices may change between the time you place your order and the time you pick up your order at the store and pay for it. For example, if you place your order on a Tuesday but pick it up on Wednesday, keep in mind that most Kroger sale cycles begin on Wednesday so things may go on or off sale at the time of payment. The exact price of each item will be printed on your receipt.

What if an item in my order is out of stock in the store?

While Kroger strives to keep all items in stock, an item you’ve selected may occasionally be unavailable. Their Pickup Associates are trained to make proper substitutions for out of stock items, so your order will always have the items you need, as close to your original order as possible.

When you place your order online, you can indicate whether you’d like to allow substitutions. If a substitution is necessary, they will follow the steps below to fill your order as best they can. Here’s how it works:

  • First, if the same type of out-of-stock item is available in a larger quantity, your order will be upgraded to the larger item.
  • If a larger quantity is not available, but the same brand and item is available in a different package (for example, boxed sugar instead of bagged sugar), that item will be substituted.
  • If the same brand is not available, the same type of item from a different brand may be substituted.
  • Any special dietary items (gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, vegan) will always be substituted with items that meet the same dietary requirements.

How do I redeem coupons?

Digital coupons loaded to your Shopper’s Card will automatically be applied to your order at pickup, and discounted from your total.

For Pickup orders, paper coupons can’t be used while checking out online. While Kroger is happy to accept paper coupons at time of pickup, please note that this will increase your pickup time. We encourage Customers to use digital coupons whenever possible to ensure that your Pickup experience is as quick as possible.

Do Catalinas Print with Kroger Pickup?

No. There is no Catalina machine for this department. If you are expecting a Catalina to print, you must use the regular registers in store.

Can I cancel my Kroger Pickup Order?

If you’d like to cancel a pending order, visit “My Purchases“. Select the order you’d like to cancel and choose Cancel.

If you experience any issues cancelling your order, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-576-4377, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to Midnight ET, and Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am to 9:30 pm ET.

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Margie

March 17, 202003:22 pm

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

Susanne

About time

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Margie

March 17, 202003:22 pm

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

Susanne

March 16, 202008:51 pm

Love it.. Love krogers savings.

What a great thought. Whoever came up with that is indeed my friend. THANKS!

This is awesome. Thanks Kroger!!

Melissa

March 15, 202009:15 pm

Our Fry's started doing it this way awhile ago! It's great.

Theresa Adkins

March 15, 202007:49 pm

About time

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

How Do Kroger Fuel Points Work?

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

So you’re asking…how do Kroger fuel points work?  I wanted to help answer your questions in hopes you’ll be less confused (if you were).

8

  • The fuel program allows you to receive savings of up to $1.00 off per gallon one one fuel purchase up to 35 gallon at Kroger, Turkey Hill and participating Shell stations.
  • For each increment of 100 fuel points (up to 1,000 point) you will receive $0.10 per gallon.
  • Earn points in current month and redeem thru each month.  Each month is a separate accumulation period.  Months’ points don’t combine in a single transaction.

Example:

  • 100 Points = 10¢ off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up
  • 200 Points = 20¢ off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up
  • 1,000 Points = $1 off per gallon of fuel for 1 fill-up

5

9

  • Shopping at Kroger
    • $1.00 spent on groceries = 1 fuel point
  • Federally funded Prescriptions
    • $1.00 spent out-of-pocket = 1 fuel point
  • Shopping at Fred Meyer Jewelers or online at Fred Meyer Jewelers
    • $1.00 spent on jewelry = 1 fuel point
  • Buying gift cards
    • $1.00 in gift cards = 2 fuel points
  • Taking a Satisfaction Receipt Survey (located on bottom of receipt)
    • Once every 7 days = 50 fuel points
  • Non-federally funded Prescriptions
    • 1 prescription = 50 fuel points
  • Visit to The Little Clinic (what you pay out-of-pocket)
    • Paid visit = 50 fuel points

5

3

YES!  Kroger holds promotions such as:

  • 2x fuel points when you buy groceries (both a Kroger Digital Coupon or one that can from Kroger ad)
    • This usually happens in the summer months
  • 4x fuel points when you buy gift cards
    • These are special promotions that Kroger does a few times a year and you’ll find about from them here.

2-6

  • Your total fuel points are calculated after you have given your Kroger card but also after all Kroger Digital coupons have gone off your order.
  • Fuel points are given BEFORE you hand over your manufacturer coupons.
    • For example, if your Kroger bill is $104.65 and you hand over your manufacturer coupon and your total now becomes less than $104.65, you will STILL receive 100 fuel points for the total BEFORE printable or insert coupons.

  • Turkey Hill
  • Shell

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

Suzanne Meiring

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

How To Print Coupons From Your Mobile Device

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

coupons

Yay!  Coupons.com is now making it even easier to print a coupon.  I know many of are mobile when you view the posts from KrogerKrazy.com.  BUT I am happy to tell you that you can now click on the link or coupon image and it will take you directly to the coupon to print.

From the blog, once you click on the link you will see this image (Is this device connected to a printer?) and if your phone or mobile device is, click yes.

1

You will then be prompted to enter your cell number (my iPad is connected to my phone so I was able to do this just once).  In order for this to start you will be texted an authentication code before they can print and must be connected to a wireless network with an AirPrint or Wireless enabled printer.

2

You will get an SMS text in less than a minute which you will enter.

4

Once you have entered the code and verified your device this is ALL you have to do.  The coupons will then be sent to your printer.  Each time you go to print the coupons, you will have to click “yes or no” to let the device know that a printer is connected but no more SMS texts.  It’s THAT easy!

5

Now get printing to stock up on even more deals that are posted!!

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

Using Coupons from Your Mobile Device

Do you view printable grocery coupons from your smartphone or tablet? You can now clip coupons and email them to yourself to print when you have access to a computer and a printer. Follow these easy instructions.

Here’s how to use the Email-to-Print feature in a coupon gallery while on a mobile device:

1. Select the coupons you like and click the “Email to Print Coupons” button (this is normally where you saw the print button).

1

2. Enter your email address and click on “Email Coupons”.

2

3. Check your email once you have access to a computer and a printer, then follow the “Print Coupons” link to your coupons to print. This is what my email looked like as soon as I opened the message.  It took less than one minute for my coupons to appear.

34.  The coupons that you emailed to yourself will be pre-clipped once you click print coupons as shown above. You’ll be ready to print and head to Kroger!


I love this option because many of you check out my deals via a mobile device but can’t print those awesome coupons that show up.  This will help you in making sure you don’t forget about the awesome coupons.  Please be aware that you’ll need to be using the “desktop” version from your mobile device.

1

If you are in the mobile version, simply go to the bottom of the page and you’ll find two buttons, one that says mobile and one that says desktop.  Click on the “desktop” tab and you’ll be rerouted to do what the instructions show above!

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

About time

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

How to Shop a Kroger Mega Event

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.
Dec 3
2014

What is a Mega Event?

A mega event is a promotion that Kroger does several times a year. Unlike typical 10 for $10 sales, you MUST purchase the quantity of items specified in that particular promo in order to receive the mega sale discount. For example, “Buy 5 participating items, Get $5 off instantly”. You must purchase in increments of 5 in order to receive the additional $1.00 off per item. You can mix and match these items and receive the discount as long as you purchase in multiples of 5 in the same transaction.

Here’s what the ad will look like. When you see this, start to get really excited because you’re about to save a LOT of money! 🙂 The ad will outline the price BEFORE mega sale discount, and also after. I always just pay attention to the bottom number.

Decoding Those Mega Tags

Here is an example of a mega event sale tag. Notice there is a “sale price” of $2.49, and then a 2nd price of $1.49  if you purchase 5 participating items.

The mega discount will come off immediately at checkout when the item is scanned (after you’ve scanned your Kroger Plus Card). You will see a participating mega item marked on the receipt with a <+ symbol.

Not all participating mega sale items will be advertised in the sale ad. There are always tons more items that will just be identified by in-store signage, so be on the lookout for those mega sale tags!

Tips on Keeping Track of Items While Shopping

Since it’s very important to keep track of how many mega items you are purchasing so that you don’t miss out on the extra discount, you’ll need a system. There are many ways to keep track of your mega items, but I’ll give you a few tips. What the picture above shows is my current method. As soon as I walk in the store, I take a few of my reusable shopping bags, open them up and place them inside my cart. I then place all my mega sale items in the bags as I shop.

Once your bag contains 10 items, you close it up! No more hiding in the last aisle at Kroger counting 50 items!

If I don’t plan on getting too crazy, I will reserve one bag for non-mega sale items. Or you can throw non-megas in the bottom of your cart. (great idea Carrie!)

Or, if you’re really diligent about keeping track of items that enter your cart, you can do the old fashioned tally system on your shopping list. Do what works for you…just make sure you keep track! You do NOT want to get through checkout just to realize you counted wrong. If this DOES happen, you have a couple of options.

What if I Miscount My Items?

Scenario #1: You’re counting mega sale items as you put them on the belt at checkout and only count 48 items. If you know what other 2 items you want to grab, just have the cashier ring up 2 extra of that item and go get them off the shelf AFTER you checkout.

Scenario #2: You don’t catch the mistake until after you checkout, maybe even after you get home. Just go pick up any extra mega sale items that you need and take them along with your receipt to the customer service desk and they will make it right.

LIMITS

The majority of mega events do NOT have limits to how many items you can purchase in the same transaction.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions on how a mega sale works at Kroger. Feel free to leave a comment if there’s something I didn’t think of or if you have additional questions! 

Oh, and one more thing…

Here’s what your face is going to look like as you marvel at your receipt when you get into your car! 🙂

 

2014 UPDATE: Check out my new video that walks you through the process!

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

Suzanne Meiring

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

Best news of 2020...seriously!

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

How to Print Coupons

how to print coupons



One of my biggest frustrations with being a couponer and it may just be yours too is seeing a coupon that I post and running to your computer to print and…nothing. If you’re like me you get easily frustrated because you know that coupon will disappear at any time.  I wanted to give you some tips to make sure that your printing goes as smoothly as possible. On top of that, if you have printed before and your luck ran down, I also want to provide you with some tips to get that printer printing again in no time. Good luck!

:: New to Coupons.com?

  • Click the coupons that you’d like to print by simply clicking on the coupon. A circle will appear letting you know that you want to clip the coupn.  The coupon will show up on your page as being clipped until you choose to print the coupon.

Clipped coupon

  • Once you have chosen all the coupons you’d like to print and if this is your first time you will need to install a coupon printer.  This is safe for your computer and Kroger Krazy will never send you to a site that is unsafe so use your best judgement.

Install Printer

  • Begin by clicking “Install Coupon Printer” and allow the computer to make changes by clicking YES on the next pop up screen.

Couponbar

  • If you’re like me, you prefer not to have the Couponbar on your browser.  It’s a total preference but if you’d rather not have it, uncheck the box BEFORE clicking the next button.
  • On the next screen, click the circle “I have read and agree to the terns of this license agreement” and click next.  (Feel free to read but who has time for that.)

Finish

  • Now run (or walk, whichever you’d like) because your coupon should be sitting in the printer ready for you to start clipping.

:: Say what?  Your coupons didn’t print?

This is where the frustration sets in but please know that there are many different options that you can try to get these printing.  When this happens and you want to test a coupon, make sure you print a coupon that you are not interested in when that coupon starts printing you won’t miss out on the good ones.  Because, that’s money gone 🙁

  • I say this all the time but I mean it.  First start by switching browsers.  I recommend Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox and Internet Explorer.  Make sure that your browsers are up to date as well.
    • Google Chrome: Google Chrome will update automatically as updates are released to the public. When updates are available they’ll appear on the “Menu” Chrome Menu button icon. You can also check to see if you’re running the latest version of Chrome by clicking on the Menu icon and then clicking About. If Chrome is up to date, it displays a check mark with a notice mentioning you are up to date.
    • Mozilla Firefox: Mozilla Firefox will automatically download updates and prompt you when updates are available to install. To determine if the Firefox browser is up to date open the About box by clicking Help in the File menu. If you don’t see the File menu press the Alt key. In the Help menu click About Firefox to display the About Mozilla Firefox box. If the latest version of Firefox is installed, you will see a “Firefox is up to date” message in the about box. Otherwise, you’ll have an option to download the latest update. If you are unsure if you are running on the latest download, go HERE.
    • Internet Explorer: Microsoft updates Microsoft Internet Explorer with its Windows update feature. As long as you’re installing all of the latest updates from Microsoft you should be running the latest version of Internet Explorer. For more info, go HERE.
  • Do you have more than one printer attached to your computer?  If so, make sure the printer you want to print to is listed as your “Default Printer”.  If you print to another computer, there’s a good chance it could still be sitting in a queue so you’ll have to attach to that printer and put it out there to get it to print.
  • If your Firewall is set to the highest security settings this may not allow items to print.  You can turn off your firewall to print the coupons and then turn it back on as soon as you are finished. I realize this is just another step but sites that I recommend are safe.
  • Uninstall and reinstall your coupon printer.  I have had to do this before to get my coupons to start printing and doesn’t take that long so put this on your list.

:: Printing SmartSource and Red Plum Coupons

I probably should have added this straight to the top because I know this is the most frustrating aspect of printing coupons.  If you are still having problems printing them I really recommend you follow the steps below so you can start printing these high value coupons.

  • First, make sure you clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Do this with the browser you intend to use for printing coupons.
    • IE: Internet Options/Browsing History/Delete button.
    • Chrome: History/Clear browsing data button. Incognito mode CANNOT be used with our coupon printing software, because cookies are used.
    • Firefox: History/Clear recent history
    • Safari: History/Clear History
  • Next, if you’re on Windows, you’ll want to uninstall Java. Go to Control Panel and depending on your operating system you’ll select Programs/Add or Remove Programs, or Uninstall Programs. This article explains uninstalling in detail. Make sure you close all browsers before uninstalling Java.
  • Don’t have Java? Move on to the next step. On a Mac? Read this article!
  • You’re now ready to install! Click here to go to the Red Plum Test Coupon page. Select the coupon and then click the Print button. The software will download, and you’ll need to install it. There’s a step-by-step article HERE that shows how it looks on different browsers.
  • When finished, you’ll know it worked when the test coupon prints. You’re almost there! Just one more step!
  • Select and print the test coupon again, and you’ll get the Protocol Acceptance message. You can set it to remember, click Allow/Ok/Launch (depending on the browser), and that’s it. The step-by-step article HERE shows how Protocol Acceptance looks on different browsers.
  • Trust me, it may seem like a lot of work but going through the steps may put you one step closer to printing the coupons!  Go to Red Plum to start printing and saving.

:: Seriously?  I STILL can’t print with Java 7

I get it, you’re frustrated and you just want to give up. Here’s something else you can try.  This WILL be worth it. We both know it.

  • If you are a Windows user:
    • First, close your internet browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome).
    • Click the Start menu and select Control Panel.
    • In Control Panel, select “Programs”, and then click “Java”.  This opens the Java Control Panel.

java1

  • Under the “Temporary Internet Files” section, there is a button called “Settings”.  Click this button.

java2

  • A new window will now pop up and is titled “Temporary Files Settings”.  Near the bottom click the “Delete Files” button.

Java 3-1

  • When the “Delete Files and Applications” box appears, make sure all three boxes are checked, including the box next to “Installed Applications and Applets”, then click OK.  This will not hurt your computer – you’re clearing out a bunch of older files you no longer need.

Java4-1

  • Close the popup boxes to return to the main Java Control Panel window.  Click the “Security” tab.
  • Set the security level to “Medium”, then click Apply.

Java 5-1

  • Click OK to exit out of the Java Control Panel.  Restart your browser and try printing again.  Your browser may prompt you to allow printing.

If you are a Mac user then you will follow the same steps only you’ll get there a little differently. To follow these same steps, go HERE.

Did this work for you?  I hope so because printable coupons can put our fingers on rare or even high value amounts that we can’t get from the newspaper.  Let me know in the comments if any of this helped.

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

Suzanne Meiring

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

March 14, 202005:21 pm

AWESOME!!! Thanks You

Sylvia O'Brien

March 14, 202005:00 pm

a great improvement

mary evans

March 14, 202004:39 pm

Yes!! Thank you!!

Marie

March 14, 202004:35 pm

Love it!! No More pulling over in an isle counting or wanting an additional item but having to buy 4 more to get the savings.

Mary

March 14, 202004:19 pm

This is great

Becky

March 14, 202004:02 pm

Awesome awesome awesome

Marge

March 14, 202003:58 pm

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

Thank goodness!!! I am like a person with OCD counting and recounting!

Christa

March 17, 202006:11 pm

love it-makes shopping easier

Suzanne Meiring

March 17, 202003:33 pm

That is great news. I always had to count how many I had. Will make it so much easier. Thank you

Margie

March 17, 202003:22 pm

Yes, will be so much easier ‼️

Susanne

Lynn

March 15, 202006:37 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

March 14, 202010:19 pm

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

I LOVE IT!! Thank you Kroger!!

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

Susie

March 14, 202003:43 pm

I would give Kroger a big hug and kiss for this, but Corona....

Krista

March 14, 202003:37 pm

This is awesome I love Krogers and I live 2 hrs away but I shop there about every other weekend it's worth the drive for me and this will definitely help me I wont be in there forever counting lol and then being mad at myself for being off count and already heading home grrr lol

Mindy

March 14, 202003:35 pm

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

March 14, 202003:23 pm

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

Jim

March 14, 202002:59 pm

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

March 14, 202009:53 pm

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Mary

March 15, 202001:10 pm

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

March 14, 202011:54 am

Please send me the Kroger Deals to my email address : [email protected] .com> Thanks Miss Ruth Hollis

Katie

March 14, 202012:56 pm

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.

I LOVE Kroger. I won't shop any where else.

Kim

May 19, 202005:03 pm

Do you know if Woohoo mark down items qualify for the $1 off when you buy 5 or more?

Pat

May 13, 202012:32 pm

Thanks for the update.

Janice Anderson

May 13, 202012:28 pm

Please work out a system for the elder people like my dad with out a computer or a up the date cell phone to help them out with the weekly saving. He is on a fixed income. If l don, t go to the store with him he misses out on savings. He likes he independence.

Anjanette Horn

May 13, 202006:34 am

I'm the person standing in the isle counting items and running back to get one more if I miscounted. This is definitely exciting to me! I love the information you provide us shoppers and the savings you find for us. Keep it up, please! #krogerkrazy fan! ( Not sure that's a thing but it should be!)

Heather

May 13, 202012:36 am

So excited for this change! I can't wait and look forward to mega sales coming back.

Mary

May 12, 202009:11 pm

I like this change and I am ready for Kroger to get back to their weekend specials And their Friday freebie!

Emmy

May 12, 202003:50 pm

Thanks for clarifying that! Is there a way to know whether an item is part of the buy5save5 deal when you are buying through the Kroger pickup?

Michelle Bumper

May 12, 202010:07 am

Oh wow thanks for the heads up. I always get confused about the mega deal. This should be easy noe to do tbey deals. Yay!

Terri Robinson

May 12, 202009:59 am

THANK YOU I always mess my order up now I won’t have to worry thank you and I’ll end up buying more items now since I don’t have to keep track

Pat

May 12, 202009:53 am

I think that is a great idea. It was such a hassle to try to keep track of how many items were on the buy 5 sale. Thank you

LINDA

March 25, 202001:31 pm

YAHOO!!! It's about time. I cant' tell you how much time I spent trying to keep track of how many "buy 5" items I had in my cart, then come to find out after checking out that other items unbeknownst to me were included in the "buy 5", throwing the count off. Ugh! Miss the Senior Discount, you should think about bring it back...

Kc

March 18, 202011:35 am

I use to carry an extra item (#6) to self checkout. I knew this item was part of the Buy 5, just in case one of my 5 items was NOT. If all 5 items ringed up, I would just leave it. But if only 4 items ringed up, I would ring this last Fifth item. Now I can just buy all 6 items. No more leaving extra stuff on the self checkout shelf =)

Miscy Reeser

March 18, 202012:40 am

Why even have to buy 5 to begin with? Why not just take $1 off each item on sale?

Robin Chuchuru

March 17, 202009:16 pm

YAHOO!!! I am so tired of keeping track of 5-5-5....thank you! Look forward to this when you have some stock!!!

Pat Walker

June 16, 202007:49 am

This just my opinion if you say $1 doesn't sell as much as having to buy 5 means more sale

Pam

March 17, 202009:01 pm

Yes, I like it. Too bad there is no groceries to buy right now. Not just your store but everywhere.

Kristi Lazur

March 17, 202007:26 pm

I'm soo glad of the new policy!!

Judy

March 15, 202002:35 pm

It’s about time Kroger made this change, it took me way longer in the store, like you said hiding on isle whatever to do my shopping. Thank, thank, thank you for this change.! Now if they could bring back the 10% discount for seniors, that would be great.

Debbie Lewis

March 15, 202001:46 pm

Thank goodness!! What a pain that was to count all those items!!

Ananda

March 15, 202012:27 pm

But in this scenario I cannot use 6 additional manufacturer coupons at all if I buy 6 of the same products as they say they cannot honor these coupons as it's only limited to 1 coupon per product. In other case they say it's the kroger policy not to apply more than 5 coupons.

Nrat

March 15, 202012:24 pm

This is terrific news! I use Kroger pickup often and always have to add notes hoping the employee can figure out what the heck I am talking about, and how to sub in a mega event item, if necessary. I also sent a comment to Kroger customer service in hopes that they can make it possible to shop the mega events in their app as I can't seem to figure it out without reading yur full inclusions list!

Missy

March 15, 202010:54 am

Woo! Now I wish they would add something to the phone app to indicate if an item is in the 5 when you scan it. Sometimes my store doesn't have things labeled right when I know they are in the 5 from your lists. I usually have someone check at a register and they are indeed included.

Michelle

March 15, 202004:13 pm

YES!! This frequently happens to me and I usually have to go to customer service to find out if the untagged item is included. Even the free standing store scanners do not indicate if the item is included. This would be a big improvement.

Dayna

March 15, 202010:42 am

FINALLY

marvin duffie

March 15, 202010:21 am

Kroger should have done this a long time ago

Carmen

March 15, 202009:51 am

I love this!!! I don't have to go to customer service anymore!

Vicki

March 15, 202008:50 am

This really makes me happy, I was the one who had to go to customer service because I miscounted. This works for me. Thanks Kroger for taking care of your customers!

Mary Brooks

March 15, 202008:47 am

This is AMAZING!!!!! Now if they could get the manager of the Batesville, MS store to not be such a butt when it comes to using coupons! She only allows only 1 like coupon per transaction meaning if I have 2 tide coupons and wanna purchase 2 tide detergents, I can only purchase 1 because they're the same coupons. It really sucks!!!!

Margaret H Smith

March 15, 202008:30 am

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of those who had to stop and count before going to check out. This is great.

Candi

March 15, 202007:26 am

So happy about this . Such a pain to have to make sure when doing a big shop if I’ve got everything right . Or if they have marked it all correctly !

Lorrain

March 15, 202012:13 am

I LOVE this!!

Susan

March 14, 202011:15 pm

Love this!!!! Do you know how many times I had to tell Clicklist employees they messed up my 5 for 5 when they substituted an item? lol

Donna

March 14, 202011:15 pm

I’m so glad to hear this. Probably will cost me more money. Won’t have to worry about 5, 5, 5. Woohoo!!!

LINDSEY

March 14, 202010:39 pm

This is great news! No more going down a not so busy aisle to count my items lol.

melissa Daugherty

yay

Cherie

March 14, 202010:06 pm

Great News! I have done all the things you mentioned. Thank you Kroger.

Sheila

March 14, 202010:04 pm

I love this change! Many times I would not do Kroger Pickup because I didn’t want to miss-count my items or risk a substitution. Also, I thought I was the only one who counted items in an lonely isle .

Janice

March 14, 202010:02 pm

AWESOME

Linda

March 14, 202009:39 pm

I love the, nest policy! It will save work for the staff too, when people dont count the mega deals quite correctly. It's a smart move by Kroger.

Joyce

March 14, 202009:35 pm

Yay! This is great news! I may even do Click-List again occasionally now!

Pam Nuss

March 14, 202008:19 pm

Appreciated. I have had to run grab items at checkout to get the discount

Rick

March 14, 202008:13 pm

Love this change. There are times items in the inclusion list do not ring up as qualifying items. So if I had 10 B5S5 items and one didn't count, it only would give me $5. That is why I always scan all the B5S5 items first, checking the register to make sure they have the ''<+" next to each item. Those two special characters indicate it qualifies as B5S5. After I verified there was a multiple of 5 of the "<+", I would hit PAY NOW, and verify it reduced my total by the appropriate amount (e.g. $10 or $25, etc). Then I would hit GO BACK and continue with my order for all other items. When my son goes with me, we each have a cart, and one cart is reserved for all the B5S5 items. That makes it easier to count as we go along. Now I don't have to stress when I have 13 items; either put 3 back or buy 2 more. It is nice now that I won't have to keep track of filler items each B5S5 promotion. I won't have to buy as many Goldfish now.......lol

Brittany

March 14, 202011:27 pm

Yes to the goldfish!!! I’ve done this soooo many times!

Julie

March 14, 202007:58 pm

So will Woo Hoo it’s count or not please?

Kim Johnson

March 14, 202007:36 pm

NANCY Goldapske

March 14, 202006:53 pm

Thank heavens. My mother stopped shopping there because of that!

Kay

March 14, 202006:43 pm

Love it,I'm always trying to keep everything straight on the 5 for 5 ,which takes me longer to shop

Laura

March 14, 202006:18 pm

Thank you Kroger for listening to your customers! I'm sure many people have experienced the frustration of miscounting items.

May

March 14, 202005:38 pm

It has been like this since January or last month in SoCal I really love it.

Judy

That is an awesome change for the customer!

Jennifer H.

March 14, 202003:54 pm

This is a great change. I didn't have trouble getting the correct number of items but I didn't like having to buy something I didn't need just to get to 5 or 10 or 15. If Kroger goes back to the old way, you can keep track of your items by using reusable shopping bags. Just put 5 items in each bag as you are shopping.

Angel

March 14, 202003:52 pm

So excited about the new policy!!! LOVE KROGER

This is so awesome!!

Jamie Frost

Love it!!

Kelly

March 14, 202003:02 pm

That’s so awesome!! Yes it will make Kroger pickup much easier to do.

That is great news. Saves me a lot of time trying to decide what sixth item to put back until next time. Conversely, it would be nice if Kroger also tracked your purchases (B5S$5) from visit to visit. This would be useful if you stopped in to buy an item that was a qualifying item but wasn’t prepared to find 4 additional items. Next visit you only need to purchase 4 or more items.

Rick

Would be a coding nightmare. Anything crossing multiple visits is. Also, let's say you buy 4 and that is all you need during trip#1 Then you go to the store the next day (trip#2) and buy only one item, Goldfish $1.99 that is part of the B5S5. So it would charge you 99¢ for that one item, but then also try to give you the $4 you were 'banking'. Their whole system is set up to not be upside down at the end of a transaction. This will never happen. And then there would be no way for customer service to try to help you out since the question you have is concerning multiple shopping trips. One of the benefits of the change they are putting in is probably an attempt to lighten the load of customer service adjustments, and your suggestion would make it much, much worse.

Rick, I would like to thanks you for such an awesome response to this request. So many people think it should be to handle, but don't realize the limitations that are imposed.

Julie

March 14, 202002:56 pm

This is awesome news! Yes, I was that person counting and recounting my items, to then pick something up in the Manger's Special aisle that would make me start all over again! Great job, Kroger! Thanks for hearing us.

Virginia S Carter

March 14, 202002:55 pm

Yes thank you!

Denise

March 14, 202002:29 pm

Yay!!!

Joyce Gould

March 14, 202002:24 pm

I love the new change. I have always had to keep counting my items to make sure I had enough. Sometimes I have miss counted. Love this.

Liz

March 14, 202001:46 pm

Love this change! Yes I am the person who tries to keep the mega saving items in a separate corner of the cart and frequently counting to make sure I have the correct amount! This will be so much easier!

Brian Berger

March 14, 202001:43 pm

About time. Nothing worse than finding you have 9, 14 or 23 items.

Robert

March 14, 202001:36 pm

Yes

Karen Moxley

March 14, 202001:33 pm

I know Kroger employees will love this as much as we do. The customer service person told me it drove them nuts making adjustments for miscounted items.

Jennifer

March 14, 202001:33 pm

It's a no brainer-literally!!

Meg Ryan

March 14, 202001:23 pm

I LOVE THIS CHANGE!!!

Rosa

March 14, 202001:15 pm

Love this idea so excited I always had to run and get an extra item or always had to count multiple times to make sure every item I had was part of the sale no more worries yeyyy

Betty Kenney

March 14, 202001:14 pm

Do not like new "coupon" offerings. Prefer the old method, much easier to mark and use. Do like new "5 for 5" pffering.

Debbie Bibb

March 14, 202001:08 pm

I love this idea. It’s great news. I’ve many times miscalculated and has messed up my whole everything from too many to over spending what I didn’t have to spend. So this is perfect. Thank you for looking out for your customers. Sincerely Debbie

Jea

March 14, 202001:07 pm

I love this changes I don’t have to worry if I got more than five and waste time counting my items.

emma

March 14, 202001:07 pm

this is great news , and the scenarios you listed were spot on , !

Colleen Eckman

March 14, 202001:02 pm

Lovin' this. I have wasted so much time counting and re-counting the items in my cart! No longer will it be a problem!

Julie Ryan

March 14, 202001:00 pm

I LOVE this idea bc I’m one of the customers who finds a spot to count my “5 items” multiple times and usually still ends up one short in checkout. I hold up the line to run and find another “buy 5, save 5” filler item. LOVE this...

Faith

March 14, 202012:55 pm

Wonderful !! Just last week I had 5 items in the mega sale $1 off each item - but one was a woohoo. A manager immediately removed the woohoo item & substituted one of my mega items that was about the same price as the woohoo item. Fixed & I was so happy !! Now I can buy more mega & not worry with counting!!

Roberta

March 14, 202012:54 pm

This is awesome news and I am all of the above. Thank you for all you do. Very much appreciated.

Nancy Blair

March 14, 202012:52 pm

This is a great change!

Kay Warthman

March 14, 202012:50 pm

Great!

Jamie

March 14, 202012:48 pm

I love the idea of buy 5 or more! Way to go Kroger!

Amanda Flowers

March 14, 202012:45 pm

This will be great I don't know how many times my items have been miscounted either by myself or something on their end.

Eugenia Garrido

March 14, 202012:38 pm

Yes. Everything you have mentioned is me. I go to an isle where theres no high traffic and count my items before heading to checkout. Ometimes I miss an item when I thought I had 5. Especially when I have my kids they are a distraction. I'm excited for this new change. That's just me.

Linda

March 14, 202012:35 pm

This is great news! Now if they would just start allowing the unused fuel points roll over at the end of the month... :)

s

March 15, 202006:26 am

I am hoping that this month, they will let points roll over because of people not going out because of Corona.

jennifer

March 14, 202001:34 pm

Yes girl! We can only hope!!

Polly Ester

March 14, 202012:31 pm

Excellent news in a world that seems otherwise to be falling apart. It’s the little things like this that makes me appreciate Kroger customer service. Our Kroger last night was about cleaned out.

Teri Robinson

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Thank you thank you thank you always having to count and I always miss one

Pat

March 14, 202012:26 pm

Awesome! This is much better! Thank you Kroger!

Charlotte A Lammers

March 14, 202012:24 pm

I love it. I end up back in the store every week. I shop only once a week and purchase everything I need (and probably more). I hate having to count everything in my cart and separating them. I never complained but I am glad enough customers did.

Ellen Ferrell

March 14, 202012:23 pm

Yay!! This will help me from visiting customer service so often!

Linda Warren

March 14, 202012:22 pm

Fantastic

Shenell Laster

March 14, 202012:20 pm

This is great news!!! Yes, it was me hiding in a lonely aisle counting my cart. LOL

Molly Jo

March 14, 202012:18 pm

VERY excited!!

Rhea

March 14, 202012:18 pm

I LOVE it!! I was one counting my stuff out in 5' so I wouldn't miss getting that extra dollar off!! Thanks Kroger!!

jenny johnson

March 14, 202012:16 pm

So does that mean also on the Mega that if I purchase, for example; 53 items as long as it's under buy 5 and over 5 items that I can take a $1 off each item over 5??? I'm sure the items would have to be over $1, wouldn't it? Might be a silly question but had to ask?

Rick

March 14, 202007:58 pm

Jenny, it is not completely clear to me what you are asking with your first question. Bottom line is on the B5S5, if you purchase 4 or under items from the list, there is no discount. If you purchase 5 or more, you would get $1 off each of those items now, even if not in multiples of 5.. So if you had 60 total items, and 53 of those were included in the B5S5 promotion, you would get $53 off your order. Regarding your second question, as a general rule Kroger does not allow a moneymaker by using DQs, or even when manually adding MQs. However, I believe B5S5 discounts are not considered coupons. Therefore, you can stack those with DQ or MQ. I have never seen an item included in B5S5 that was under $1, but if somehow they did mess that up, I believe it would be a moneymaker.. That being said, I recently found some 'woohoo' Pop Tarts priced $1, they were in the B5S5 that week, and I got all 4 of them for free.

Helen

March 14, 202012:10 pm

Glad they are finally going to do that. I shop with my grandchildren and it is hard to keep count. Easy to fix at customer service desk but now won't have to keep track of the count and two children.

Tara

March 14, 202012:09 pm

I LOVE IT! I was one in the middle of the isle counting quantities of 5. This really is a game changer and I’m totally in. Kroger for the WIN!

Kay Toungette

March 14, 202012:08 pm

This is so awesome!!!! Thank you Kroger!!!!!

Amy

March 14, 202012:05 pm

yes! I have passed over many a woohoo and the occasional freebie not knowing if throw my count way off.

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:04 pm

AND! It'll cut out the backtracking necessary when the count is off! "Excuse me, please, I just need to grab one more (?) to make the quota." Who HASN'T been in that pickle? Yeah!!!

Kimberly Dearing

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is great news! I can’t count how many times I have one too many or have been one short no matter how many times I’m in the aisle counting and recounting items. Thank you Kroger!

Shaunn

March 14, 202012:01 pm

This is stupendous! I've done all of the above (counting what's in my cart, worrying about Clicklist subs, etc.). Well done, Kroger's! Another feather in your cap! Thank you, KrogerKrazy, for sharing this! ☺

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202012:00 pm

I'm excited for this. Great idea and it will work for me.

Margaret Ramirez

March 14, 202011:59 am

Sounds like a great idea will be shopping more

Wayne Harrison

March 14, 202011:59 am

Excited, I had co.plained a long time age about this problem. But i am glad you rectified it!

Gloria Beck

March 14, 202011:58 am

This is great. I like this idea and it will great for me.

Jane Holloway

March 14, 202011:58 am

I love this! I have often been the one counting, recounting to make sure my numbers are correct!

Ruth Hollis

Ruth, I just signed you up. You'll need to click CONFIRM on the email I just sent you.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:52 am

Yea! I just had to do that customer service correction a week or so ago. This will make it so much easier, because no matter how well you plan out your shopping trip you know that something will not be available or you will see something you actually need that you didn't realize was part of the $5 off 5 sale. Thank you Kroger. Now the only problem will be if there will actually be product to buy considering the current situation. Please get what is needed or to share with those struggling to meat food needs, but lets not hoard. Be Kind! We are all in this together whether you realize it or like it or not.

Mary Orton

March 14, 202011:54 am

Sorry, that is "meet" not meat, although I guess in some way they could both be true.

Erin

March 14, 202011:51 am

I think this is awesome! I am that person in a lonely aisle counting things and watching like a hawk when I check out.

Ashley D

March 14, 202011:50 am

Awesome!!!!! Love it! Thank you for explaining

Renee

March 14, 202011:49 am

This is great news. It will save time and sanity trying to keep track of the mega sale items. So excited.

Ronda Mitchell

March 14, 202011:47 am

I love the idea plenty of times I have got caught up too many or not enough

Margaret

March 14, 202011:44 am

Awesome! This will definitely save me a lot of time. Thank you, Kroger's

Judy Read

March 14, 202011:37 am

This is incredible news!! will save me so much time in the store during mega event weeks.

Arin

March 14, 202011:33 am

Best news of 2020...seriously!

florence

March 16, 202011:32 am

when are you and all the other food markets going to do something helpful to Seniors????????? I and millions of other elderly don't want "buy 1 get one "such as BOGO and buy 5 or whatever and get $$ off. It just does not work for us.
