Did your Kroger Coupons come in the Mail?


I am always excited when Kroger coupons arrive in the mail. And, I am not talking about the pretty colored coupons. No, I am talking about the ones I have displayed in the picture. You know? The $9 Off $90 of groceries. The 3 $20 Pharmacy coupons, etc! Well, mine arrived last week! And, although I didn't get any great $ Off $ coupons, I knew that others had gotten theirs!! Which means...I headed to eBay
that day.

Here is why! My coupons that came in the mail don't expire until the end of April. Well, I have about 8 weeks until they expire, AND I want enough coupons to last me for every week that they are valid. And, I also know, that as soon as I get mine in the mail, other people across the US are getting theirs and selling them on Ebay. So, I buy enough to last me for every week! It is true.

So, here is what you need to do.

First, if you are not registered with eBay, click here!
You need to set up your free account.

Second, if you aren't registered with Big Crumbs yet, click here. You also need this free account. When you log in through them, they give you 20% off the ebay seller's fee back in cash at the end of the month.

Third, you sign into Big Crumbs. You then go to eBay
to shop. It takes you to your eBay
account and you type Kroger Coupons in the search field.


Once there, you shop for ONLY the coupons that are worthwhile. Meaning, I only buy the ones that are similar to the picture above.

I do NOT buy all those listed out there that expire in October of next year. You know why? Those are Entertainment Book Coupons and are ONLY valid in certain states. They are NOT valid in the Ohio stores. The ones that are mailed to their home are valid at all Krogers.

So, what have I bought since I got my coupons last week.

Save $9.00 when you spend $90.00 in one transaction
Save $6.00 when you spend $60.00 in one transaction
(4) Save $5.00 when you spend $50.00 in one transaction
Save $2.00 when you purchase $7.00 of Fresh Poultry
Save 2.50 when you purchase $10.00 in Fresh Ground Beef
Save $3.00 when you purchase $15.00 from Health & Beauty Care Department
(6)Save $2.00 when you purchase $10.00 from Health & Beauty Care Department
(6)Save $1.50 with the purchase of $7.00 from Dairy Department
(6)Save $1.50 with the purchase of $7.00 from Frozen Department

The total worth of these? $72.50 And, I will use them ALL! Bonus, is that some of their coupons don't expire until the end of May!!

Another Bonus: I got (2) $60 worth of Prescription coupons. So, that is $120, if I am able to use them! If not, I can give them to someone who can.


What did I spend for these coupons? $26!! So, I made $46.50 before the prescription coupons. I could potentially make more if we need to fill any in the next 2 months.

So, I hope...if you are a Kroger shopper, you run to eBay
every time you get your coupons. Figure out how many weeks before they expire, and buy enough coupons for each week! Aim for the $ off $ coupons! ( make sure to always give these coupons FIRST when checking out ). Also, when bidding, make sure you buy that much in groceries each week. For example, I do NOT buy the $15 off $150 coupons because I never spend that much in a trip. It would go to waste.

And, if you go out there now and don't see any...well, I am sorry...I bought a lot of them up!!! :-) But, check back each week over the next month. People post them periodically over the next few weeks.

And, FINALLY....I have ONE Kroger Coupon from the Entertainment Book that is valid for February. It states $3 off $30, $4 Off $40 or $5 off $50! If your Kroger accepts the Entertaiment Book Kroger Coupons, I will gladly to ship to the first person who emails me and asks for it. I cannot guarantee it will get there before Friday, but I can mail out tomorrow and we can hope for the best!

I shop at Kroger's with a Kroger card and I have never gotten these coupons. Any idea why?

First, I would recommend checking the address they have on file with your Kroger Plus card. Log into Kroger.com and go to My Card in the upper right corner. Then, set up an account ( if you don't already have one ). Once you enter your shopper ID # after setting up your account, it will pull in the address they have on file for you. If it is wrong, you can change it there.

If all that seems in order, I would call Kroger and ask what the requirements are to get coupons in the mail. Call 1-866-221-4141

If you find anything out, please let us know!!

I called Kroger tonight. I had no name or address with my card. I have had my card for a long, long time. They think I got it before they set up everything by computer. Thanks for the tip. I should get them in the future. How often do they come out?

Evelyn,
I am glad the problem was so easily fixed. Thanks for letting me know!
My coupons seem to come about once a quarter ( so every 3 months or so ) but I could be wrong.
I will definitely post everytime they come out again, so people can buy on Ebay, and also check to make sure they got theirs.
