UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

If you haven't heard yet, the Kroger Co. Family of Stores is currently having a Mega Savings Event that will run through September 2. (Dates may vary slightly, based on location.) Here's how this awesome promotion works:

When you buy 10 participating brands (see my list below), you'll automatically save $5 at checkout when you use your shopper's card. There is no limit on the number of rewards you can earn per transaction!

Participating brands include: AMP Energy, Aquafina, Betty Crocker Baking Mixes, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, Cascadian Farms Cereals and Bars, Cap'n Crunch, Cheerios, Cheetos, Chex Mix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa 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 Oatmeal, Quaker Chewy Bars, Starbucks, Sobe Life Water, Totino's, Trix, Tropicana, Yoplait and MORE! (Participating brands will be tagged in your local store.)

MyBlogSpark, General Mills, and PepsiCo. generously sent me a $30 Kroger gift card to see how much I could save during the Mega Savings Event. Here's how I did:


Total OOP: $28.03 + tax

Want to hear the best part? MyBlogSpark, General Mills, and PepsiCo. were kind enough to give me an additional $30 gift card to share with one of my awesome readers!!!
