Kroger's Mega Sale Event and Gift Card GIVEAWAY!


I'm so excited!

MyBlogSpark in affiliation with PepsiCo. and General Mills contacted me to host a Kroger's Gift Card Giveaway! This has been so much fun, and we're just getting started!

Kroger's is holding their Mega Sale event Aug. 16th thru Sept. 2nd. Click here to see a list of participating stores (Shoppers should also see stores or website for exact dates since the sales dates may vary by area). If you are not familiar with this promotional offer, here is how it works: when you buy 10 participating brands (see list below) and use your Shopper Card at check out you instantly save $5. And there is no limit on the number of rewards per transaction! Look for the double yellow tags in-store.

Participating brands include:

•AMP Energy • Aquafina • Betty Crocker Baking Mixes • Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks • Cascadian Farms Cereals and Bars • Cap'n CrunchCheerios • Cheetos • Chex Mix • Cinnamon Toast CrunchCocoa Puffs • Dole Juices and Juice Drinks • Fiber One • Fritos • Gatorade • Golden Grahams • Green Giant • Hamburger Helper • Life • Lipton Tea • Nature Valley • Old El Paso • Pepsi family of 2 Liters • Pillsbury • Progresso • Propel • Quaker Instant OatmealQuaker Chewy Bars • Starbucks • Sobe Life Water • Totino's • Trix • Tropicana • Yoplait and MORE! WOW!

•••

I headed out to my local Kroger's today (which I found out was 45 minutes away, hahaha) to see what deals I could score with my own $30 gift card.

I purchased 41 items for $32.13.

Yep, you read that right -- I was able to score 12 Yoplait Yogurts, 1 Wanchai Ferry Dinner Kit, 2 boxes of Total Cereal, 2 boxes of Cheerios, 2 boxes of Natures Valley Trail Mix Granola Bars, 2 packages of Pillsbury Toaster Strudel, 2 packages of Pillsbury Cookie Dough, 2 containers of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 2 containers of Grands Biscuits, 2 containers of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, 3 boxes of Hamburger Helper, 3 Lunchables and 6 packages of Oscar Mayer hot dogs.

It was totally worth the trip!!

rebeccabalter said...

If I used the $30 gift card and counted it as savings as well, I could probaby get 70 items using card loadable coupons, Traditional coupons and printable ecoupons for $16.95, so I'm sure that's a savings of well over $50. Keep in mind that my Kroger doubles all coupons up to $1... I factored that into my scenarios:) e-mail, rebeccabalter@hotmail.com
