My Kroger Mega Savings Event Deals

Total OOP: $28.03 + tax

Earlier today, I went to Kroger to check out the Mega Savings Event and to see what kinds of deals I could score with my $30 gift card from MyBlogSpark, PepsiCo. and General Mills. I'm really happy with the results of my trip! I thought it was interesting that I got all of these deals using Internet printable coupons, e-coupons and sales/discounts - no "traditional" coupons here.

another thing.... Did you do all this in one transaction? I thought the limit for the Mega Event was 3/transaction (40 items)??

You're very welcome! I was really excited when I figured that out, especially since they double! There's also a $.50/2 Gushers/Fruit by the Foot available.

I did do all of this in one transaction ($20 off for 40 items). I didn't think there was a limit, but that may vary by region/store. I double checked my ad and didn't see anything about that, but you might want to check with customer service just to be sure.

Hope that helps!
