Updates & Updated Kroger Coupon Policy!!

OMG!! It has been so long since I blogged and I needed some motivation (and time) to get back in the groove. Whew, social media is a FULL TIME JOB!!

Anyway, there have been a lot of changes in the couponing game lately, so I decided what better time to jump back in and start writing. There will be some MAJOR changes to this blog coming in the future, as it is time to step it up and step out on faith. There are so many things going on in my life right now and I am truly excited about every single one!!

So...let's start here: Kroger has FINALLY released their Coupon Policy on their website. Before, it used to be a serious hide-n-seek game with it, but now that so many changes have come, all the stores are pretty much uniform now. 

First, as of this week, most Kroger stores will have stopped doubling. My region stopped at the beginning of this month and I decided that I would not complain. There's no need to because they aren't going to change it, plus, I'm grateful that we had this long. Our region had almost another year of doubling since Kroger started slashing doubles last year. The bonus is they have been giving us some great coupons, in ABUNDANCE too, many with higher values (that wouldn't have doubled anyway). 

Second, they are really pushing digital coupons. These are really helpful and and easy to load and unload via the Kroger app. My only complaint is that you can't use them on my beloved Manager's Special items. Boo!! I digress...

Lastly, here is the actual link to the policy and the policy below.  

It's pretty much the same as we've known: 5 LIKE coupons and 2 LIKE Internet Printables (IPs), but one thing I noticed was this line: 

"All coupons will be accepted at face value." 

Do you know what that says to me?...that we should now EXPECT OVERAGE!! Aha!

Make sure you print out the updated policy and keep it in your binders for those times when you may need to "have a little talk" with a cashier or manager. Don't forget though...ALWAYS be nice!! Au revoir!!
