I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?


Kroger's Gift Card Giveaway (And other grocery stores)



Giveaway time!

First, the reason for the promotion. Kroger is having a huge sale and in addition to giving me a $25 gift card (via MyBlogSpark), they're also giving one of you a $25 gift card. Woo!  Keep in mind that if you don't have a Kroger, there are other chains in the "family" that it can be used at.
Through March 14th, shop the Cart Buster Savings Event and find the hottest prices around on your favorite name-brand products in over 60 categories at the Kroger Family of Stores, which includes Kroger, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillons, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.

Here are just a few of the great brands participating in the event: Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Hamburger Helper, Yoplait, Progresso, Totino´s, Green Giant, Cascadian Farm, Tide, Charmin, Bounty, Pampers, Pantene, Crest, Iams, Febreze, Old Spice and many more!
Now this particular sale ends in just a couple days, so you'll have to hit up your local store soon to take advantage of it. If you win the gift card, you'll be able to use it for some of their great sales in the future....and there are 'always' sales going on.

Anyway, here's how to get your chance to win one, too.

I was fortunate at the end of summer last year to go to Justice (clothing store for girls and I have two of them) with a 40% off coupon and bought $32 bathing suits for $5.99. I also purchased most of my kids spring/summer wardrobes for this year during that sale... SCORE!

two best deal ever had were 1.99 off any size pull up so i was able to get them free on the sample size packs because they had 1.99 coupon inside the 1.99 pack but they had 2 coupons in them. one in french and one in english so I was getting 2 packs for every one pack. they started just giving them to me by the cases. i would give them to friends and homeless and the poor shelters.

2nd was when my husbands grandmother 2 96 yrs old was sick and she could only eat baby food. I found a deal were there was an earths best $1.00 of 5 and shoprite was running a special 5/1.25 so I was getting 5 of the small jars for 25 cents so they were a nickel a jar. I got 57 cases. these offers were both back a few years ago.

The best deal I have gotten lately was buying 1 package of Lifesavers on sale for 99 cents, and finding a coupon insided for 50 cents off. I used the coupon for another pack (which got doubled)....did this a few times over the next couple days. I ended up paying 99 cents for 6 bags of Lifesavers.

The best sale I've ever experienced was a Kroger 10 for $10 sale that I had lots of coupons for. I saved over 50% off with coupons, and since the prices were so low, I saved even more.

Susan said...

The best deals I found lately was last year. All the Targets and Walgreens in my area were doing resets and were marking things down like crazy. I stocked up on tons of things like paper towels, toys, tissues, paper plates,cereal to name just a few.
