  • Sanitizing restrooms more frequently and restocking with supplies, including soap, paper towels and hand sanitizer.
  • Adding extra hand sanitizer at cashier stations, food service counters, and all Pharmacy, The Little Clinic and Starbucks locations.
  • Wiping down shopping carts, baskets and equipment.
  • Partnering with our suppliers to replenish high-demand preparedness products.
  • Continuing to provide our customers with free disinfectant wipes at our store entrances to sanitize their shopping carts or baskets.

Kroger store stocked kroger krazy

Coronavirus Update from my local Kroger

I know a lot of us are experiencing shortages on a few essential items at Kroger, and thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where we can share updates on what’s happening at our local stores. My experience today at my Sandusky, Ohio Kroger Marketplace was very good! They of course were out of toilet paper and disinfectant items, but the Kroger CEO did announce that they are partnering with their suppliers to replenish high-demand preparedness products. Aside from just a couple of food items, my store was FULL, including water, meat, dairy and fresh produce! Stores are also setting limits on some items to ensure everyone has the opportunity to purchase their essentials.

Grocery executives are working hand-in-hand with the Federal Government, as well as State and local leaders, to ensure food and essentials are constantly available.

I will say, I am so glad that my couponing has allowed me to stockpile a lot of items over the years. I’m sure a lot of you can say the same thing. 😍  It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to say to friends, family and neighbors “Come over if there is anything you need”!

It is more important than ever for us to all be saving money at Kroger, so we at Kroger Krazy will continue bringing you all the best Kroger deals – business as usual. Many of the deals we post are SUPER easy to do, especially with Kroger Digital Coupons so be sure to share! We do NOT want anyone paying full price when they just don’t have to! We will also be focusing on posting more “no coupons needed” deals as it may be unrealistic for some to be using a pile of paper coupons as crowds increase and checkout lanes take longer.

As I mentioned yesterday in my Kroger store hours changing post, we will be providing any updates that we receive and will pass along to you!

Above all, be patient, be compassionate, take care of each other and STAY WELL! We got this!!

BIG Change for Kroger Mega Events Starting Wednesday, March 18th!

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?

Kroger Online Ordering Pickup Service | NEW Customers ONLY = $20.00 off a $50.00 Purchase

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

Have you tried Kroger Pickup yet? It is a great and convenient 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!

If you are BRAND NEW to Kroger Pickup and have never placed an order before then you’re in luck because FIRST TIME USERS ONLY can download a coupon for $20.00 off a $50.00 purchase and use between October 3-17.  You MUST spend at least $50.00 for this coupon to come off.

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.

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Kroger Culinary Innovation Center for a complete immersion of everything Kroger and you KNOW how much I love Kroger, so needless to say I was in my element. I spent a couple of days mingling with Kroger executives, along with a group of incredibly talented food bloggers who each made a #RedWhiteAndBBQ themed dish for about 50 people and a panel of judges. This was seriously the most beautiful and unbelievably delicious food I have ever tasted. No joke.

My favorite part of the week has to be the opening breakfast and presentation on the Kroger Zero Hunger Zero Waste initiative.

Zero Hunger Zero Waste is a national effort aimed at ending hunger in the communities Kroger calls home and eliminating waste across the company by 2025. Across the United States, 42 million Americans struggle with hunger. At the same time, an estimated 72 billion pounds of food ends up in a landfill every year. This is unacceptable, and Kroger is doing something about it! It was so inspiring to hear about this amazing plan and I’m already brainstorming ideas on how I can help do my part as well. The easiest thing you can do is make sure you’re participating in the “Round-Up” program. Did you know you have the opportunity to “round up” your total grocery purchase to the nearest dollar at the cash register? If your cashier forgets to ask you, ASK THEM because 100% of the funds benefits Kroger food bank partners.

The Culinary Innovation chefs prepared an unbelievable breakfast made from ingredients that would have otherwise gone to waste. I was blown away but what they were able to create.

Another highlight for me was meeting the man behind the Prep+Pared meal kit creations, chef Brandon.  He prepared 2 of the new dishes he’s been “cooking” up and they were both absolutely delicious! It really gave me the opportunity to try something I would have never thought of on my own…along with exploring new flavors. We had a gourmet meal with fresh ingredients in less than 20 minutes! Everything you need is pre-cut, pre-measured and SO EASY to complete! The meals are constantly being rotated, so you will never get bored!

We received a lot of “insider” information on what’s new with Kroger, including:

  • Prep+Pared Meal Kits
  • Clicklist Delivery
  • Ship to Home
  • NEW products being released across all of Kroger’s private brands (Simple Truth, Private Selection, etc.)
  • …and much more to come!! Stay close!!

NEW 'Scan, Bag, Go' Kroger Digital Shopping Experience - What is it and How Does it Work?!?

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.
May 24

Have you seen the new Kroger kiosk in your stores called “Scan, Bag, Go”?  It reminds me of that great experience of doing your wedding or baby registry, except you have to pay for everything in the end!! HA!! Well, my store in Sandusky, Ohio just rolled the new program out and let me tell you it’s awesome! Kroger’s in-house research and development team invented and built the Scan, Bag, Go technology, because they’re awesome like that. Scan, Bag, Go allows customers to use a wireless handheld scanner or the Scan, Bag, Go app on their personal device to scan and bag products as they shop for a quicker, seamless checkout experience. If this isn’t the FUTURE, then I don’t know what is! I want to think that Kroger sat down and said, “So, let’s not shop in the stone age anymore! Let’s create the future of shopping!”. And that’s just what they did.

In January, 2018 Kroger Co. announced that it will introduce its new and exciting Scan, Bag, Go shopping technology in 18 operating divisions, making the service available this year to customers at 400 stores. This is was already SO exciting for me, but when I saw it in MY store I couldn’t contain my joy! You can see JUST how easy it was for me…

Scan, Bag, Go helps to create a personalized experience for customers throughout their shopping trip, allowing them to view and download digital coupons, keep a running total of their order, and view the current week’s sales ad.

Scan, Bag, Go customers currently visit a store’s self-checkout area to provide payment. Customers will soon have the ability to provide payment directly through the app, allowing shoppers to exit the store even quicker.  There is no charge to use this program at Kroger.

Once you finish up your shopping, you can head out to self-checkout kiosks where valid coupons are calculated and applied to your shopping, followed by a final total that is instantly calculated. Eventually, shoppers like you and me will not even need to use these kiosks altogether as they will be able to pay directly through the app.  How is THAT for in and out??

I honestly had so much fun as I “scanned” my way through the store. And I was happy to see extra bags displayed throughout as I ended up purchasing more than I originally planned. Hey, you can’t say you haven’t done the same! “Just going in for one thing hun!” Happens every time doesn’t it? The checkout process was super easy and all of my loaded digital coupons came off as expected. I will definitely be utilizing this again soon. Like, tomorrow. And every day after that.

By the end of the year, Scan, Bag, Go will be available at select locations in the following divisions: Atlanta; Central; Cincinnati; Columbus; Dallas; Delta; Dillons; Fred Meyer; Fry’s; Houston; King Soopers; Louisville; Michigan; Mid-Atlantic; Nashville; Ralphs; Smith’s; and QFC.

If you have this option in store right now, for a limited time you can get $5.00 off your order $35.00 or more in the same transaction.

The Scan, Bag, Go app is free and available to download via iTunes and Google Play.

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

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

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

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

Follow the instructions to Find your Kroger region.

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

Find King Soopers weekly matchups HERE.

Looks like the only  region left that still doubles is Knoxville TN area stores (Mid-South region).

(thanks to everyone who messaged me about this change)

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be attending the grand opening of the Sandusky (my home town!!) Kroger Marketplace store at 226 E. Perkins Ave. on Wednesday, April 6 starting at 8 am. If you are nearby (or feel like traveling!), I would love for you to stop by for a meet and greet! I will be there bright and early along with the awesome Kroger Krazy team (Kendra and Jacqueline). It’s going to be so much fun and I can’t wait to see some of you there!

If you’ve ever been to a Kroger grand opening, you know it’s all kinds of awesome! Here’s what you can expect.

Wednesday, April 6

8 a.m. | The first 300 customers through the door at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, April 6 will receive a reusable shopping bag and Kroger gift card (ranging in value from $5 – $100).

9 a.m. | Ribbon cutting with store associates and local dignitaries.

Drawings throughout the store for a chance to win one of 15, $100 Kroger gift cards.

Product sampling throughout the store.

4-6 p.m. |  A caricature artist, face painter and balloon at the store to entertain families.

Customers who visit the store on grand opening day are encouraged to share a message or photo about the store on Twitter using the #SanduskyKroger to be entered to win a $100 Kroger gift card.

Saturday, April 9

9 a.m. | The first 300 customers receive a mesh bag filled with Kroger kitchen gadgets.

Saturday, April 23

Community Giving Day: 10 percent of sales (excluding gift cards, pharmacy, fuel, beer/wine/liquor) will go to Sandusky City Schools and Perkins Local Schools.


If you ARE in fact in the Sandusky area, make sure you stop by the current store just down the street (open through Tuesday evening) for some amazing deals as they will be needing to sell as much as they can before it closes.

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

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

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

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

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