Hi! It’s me, The Patriot’s Wife.
The Patriot has asked me to contribute for a while and I have not felt like I had anything to add.
Well, today that all changed.
For a week or so I’ve been reading about a fab deal at Kroger affiliate stores. Buy 5 participating items and get a $5 Catalina coupon to use on your next order.
Tiffany at www.mylittler.com has been posting tons of deal scenarios and reader transactions.
Usually I’m pretty quick when it comes to coupon deals. But for some reason I just couldn’t wrap my head around this one. I guess because it was so dang simple! Without any coupons you get free food. That’s it!
For an explanation, here’s Tiffany’s take http://mylitter.com/kroger/kroger-mini-mega-event-buy-5-now-save-5-hot/
Today The Patriot and I went to our local Smiths store to check things out. Once I got in the store everything made perfect sense. We grabbed two carts and went to town!
When all was said and done, we had invested $15 into our initial order and paid $13.75 for some items that were not completely free. We got 415 items PLUS 427 fuel reward points! That means a lot of free food and 40 cents off each gallon of gas. What a deal!
What made this deal so sweet is many of the items are ones we already use. Taco shells, Mac and Cheese (don’t judge, you know kids love this stuff!), green enchilada sauce (I make a mean sweet potato, black bean enchilada casserole), and cheap pizzas and cake mixes. The rest will go into food storage or be donated.
Unfortunately, this deal ends today. So get thy self to your local Kroger! Happy shopping!
