FYI: The Oscar Mayer Bacon Q is no longer good. I just tried it. “Due to high demand…” yadda yadda yadda

@Shelly,

Sorry about that. Thanks for the heads up. Apparently it reached it’s limit. Then they opened up more, but it must have reached its limit again! :(

How did you get the AJ for .99?

It was part of the promotion! Only $.99! That’s as low as I’ve seen it in a long time, or ever!

Good deal. I’ve made a plan to go shopping later this week and I’m planning on getting some juice, diced tomatoes and soap too, along with several other things, can’t wait! I’m loving these mega events and the March to Savings game too!

So, yesterday I was soooo prepared for my amazing Kroger shopping trip. List in hand, stacks of wonderful coupons, ready to stock up and save! Then disappointment which I rarely experience with Kroger.

First, throughout the store they were out of sale items. No diced tomatoes, vitamin water zeros, dial soap, and more.

Then as I am checking out, the cashier hands me back four of my coupons and shows me 2 notes from corporate.
Note 1: maximum of 2 printable coupons per transaction
Note 2: due to faudulant (sp?) activity, no printable coupon for more than $.99 will be accepted.

The people are great and I still got plenty of good deals, but I was so disappointed.

I forgot to mention, the notes were from corporate, but it could still be regional. I’m in southeast Virginia.
