:: Coupon Policy

ALL Kroger stores in Texas will no longer be doubling or tripling ANY coupons. You can take a look at the new Kroger Coupon Policy here.

Note: Albertsons, Tom Thumb and Brookshires (Forney Store) are still offering double and triple coupons. Tom Thumb and Brookshires will only double one like coupon. Albertsons was doubling up to 4. Also, Kroger stores are divided into 18 regions. Coupon policies vary by region and Weekly Sales Ad and sales cycles are different as well.

Click here to see the regional divisions.

Kroger accepts:

Kroger coupons
Printable coupons
Manufacturers coupons

To take full advantage of Kroger’s deals you MUST have a Kroger Plus card.  Be sure and visit www.kroger.com and register to your card and put in your current address and sign-up for their newsletter here. Their monthly newsletter will be mailed to your home and has FABULOUS Exclusive Kroger coupons. I receive coupons for free products often.

Click here to download Kroger e-coupons to your card or phone. Please note these coupons are Manufacturer coupons and they cannot be stacked with paper coupons. They also will not double! You can only download coupons to one address (even if your spouse has a different numbered card, it is linked to your address) You can only download up to 150 coupons to your card.

Basic things to know

The only real Kroger store coupon are the coupons for Kroger Store brand items.

Even though you may receive a coupon with the Kroger logo on it, that does not make it a Kroger Store coupon, look at the top of coupon by the date and notice it will say Manufacturer coupon, therefore you cannot stack this coupon.

Unless it states otherwise if a product is 2 for $3.00

Kroger often has Mega Events, during this special sale you MUST BUY 10 items (etc.) to save $5.00 at the end.   Unless stated you can use a buy one get one free (BOGO) coupon on an item that is on sale for BOGO and get both products free without buying any of that product.

Kroger also offers Fuel Points with savings up to $1.00 a gallon on gas.

IF an item scans up higher than the price marked on the shelf you can get that item for FREE (this does not apply to “clearance/saving’s aisle” products.

Manager’s Specials/Clearance Section: Every Kroger store has a section where they have mark down items (these are not under the scan right policy). You can find some AMAZING DEALS on products and paired with a coupon, get them for free. The reason these items are marked down is due to shelf space, if they aren’t selling, the clearance them out. Meats, dairy products etc that are nearing their expiration date can be found in each department.

Here is your intro to Extreme Couponing 101, How to Shop CVS! There are many ways to save and even earn money while shopping at CVS!

CVS, Weekly Ad: CVS, dallas coupon match

: Contact CVS

  • CVS Customer Service: 1-800-SHOP-CVS (1-800-746-7287)
  • E-mail feedback to CVS Corporate Headquarters

:: Coupon Policy

CVS accepts the following types of coupons:

  • CVS store coupons
  • Manufacturer coupons
  • Internet printable coupons
  • Competitor pharmacy coupons
  • ExtraCare Bucks

We will start with the Weekly Ads. You can get the Weekly Ad online, in front of the store or in your local Sunday paper. The Ad lists all sale items and items that will produce Extra Care Bucks and the quantity needed to earn them.

What are Extra Care Bucks (ECB)? These are dollars that you earn when making certain purchases and can be used on any future CVS purchase. Your ECBs will print out on your receipt so make sure to always check before throwing away your receipt. There are weekly and monthly ECB. You will also earn 2% back in ECB quarterly on your purchases which will print automatically at the end of the sales period.

You do not have to get all the items at the same time but will not earn the ECB until you fulfill the entire purchase.

In order to start earning ECBs, you need to have an Extra Care Card. You can get a card simply by asking a cashier for a form or by signing up online. If you fill out the form in-store, you will get your card to start saving immediately. However if you sign up online, it will take about a week to get your card in the mail. Remember to register your account online to receive special offers by email or in your mail box.

In addition to ECB, there is also CRT (cash register tape) coupons that print automatically on your receipt. You can also get these CRTs by scanning your Extra Care Card at the red price scanner (the magic coupon box we refer to) usually located in the front of the store. These are not listed in the Weekly Ad and just print randomly. These are pretty general, for instance, $2.00 off of Huggies Pull-ups and sometimes Freebies!

These CRTs are considered CVS Store coupons and can be combined with manufacturer’s coupons (MFC).  This is called “Coupon Stacking” and here’s what it looks like:

Buy (1) Huggies Pull-ups Jumbo Pack @ $9.00
Use (1) $2.00 CRT
Use (1) $3.00 MFC
Total $4.00 after using both coupons

Making money at CVS can be very simple! Almost every week there is a promotion where you will earn the same amount of ECB that you spend.

For instance:

Colgate Toothpaste $2.99
Earn $2.99 ECB wyb 1
Use $1.00 off Manufacturer’s coupon
Total = $1.00 overage after coupon and ECB

Here are a couple of additional ways to save at CVS:

Email coupons – remember to sign up online to get these.

B1G1 Free sales – you can use two MFC coupons on a buy-one-get-one-free sale.

For example:

Max Factor Mascara $7.99 B1G1 Free
Use (2) $3.00 off MFC
Total = $1.99 for both

As with anything, “practice makes perfect” so don’t be discouraged if you make a few mistakes. You’ll be shopping like a pro soon enough.
