Kroger Savings

Did you know that you can go to three different websites online, enter your store card number, and load your card with electronic coupons that will be applied automatically to your grocery order when you purchase the items that the coupons are for? A great perk to using electronic coupons is that, currently, they can be stacked with paper coupons to save you even more!
Here are the links!

Shortcuts (Kroger, Ralphs, Smith's, King Soopers, Dillons, Fry's, and more)

P&G eSaver (currently only Kroger)

Unilever (currently only Kroger)

Here's an example of making e-coupons work for you:

This week, Wisk laundry detergent is on sale for $3.49 at Kroger. If you add the P&G eSaver coupon to your card for $1.50 off 1 Wisk, and use a paper manufacturers coupon from this week's newspaper inserts, also for $1.50 off 1 Wisk, you save $3 - making your total $0.49 for the bottle!

Here are some points worth noting:-You can only have 25 e-coupons loaded on your Kroger card at a time (not 25 per site, but 25 total). I don't know if this is correct for the other stores on the Shortcuts list.-You can only use each e-coupon once, so you can't really use them to stockpile.

You can walk out of Kroger with an average savings of 86%. Here is a breakdown:

some might actually have been in previous weeks. You can check the coupon database at www.couponmom.com to find out specifics. I have a few extras that probably won't get used if you need something specific let me know and I'll see what I've got.
