My Kroger "Mega Sale" Shopping Trip!

I went to Kroger last night armed with coupons, my Kroger card loaded up with more coupons, my sales ad and the $30.00 Kroger Gift Card, thanks to PepsiCo, General Mills and MyBlogSpark.

This is what I bought:

Total before sale prices & coupons: $109.99
After Mega Sale discounts and all my coupons: $29.74!!

I was so excited! I must admit, when I was watching everything get rung up, I started to sweat a bit. LOL

This is what I got:
10 - 4 packs of Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt
3 - 4 packs of Yoplait Delights Parfait Yogurts
1 - Yoplait Whipped Yogurt
4 - Pillsbury Grand Biscuits
6 - Boxes of Hamburger Helper
8 - Boxes of Betty Crocker Brownie Mixes
2 - Bags of Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes
2 - Boxes of Quaker True Delights Bars
1 - Bag of Quaker Rice Cake Snacks
2 - SoBe Life Waters
1 - Betty Crocker Warm Delights
2 - Boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal
1 - Box of Trix Cereal
1 - Bag of Baked Lays Chips

I had a total of 44 items and everything but the SoBe water & the single Yoplait yogurt was part of the Mega Sale. So, I was able to get $20.00 ($5.00 for each 10 participating products) off my bill right away.

The SoBe water & Single Yogurt were free with coupons I had. Every item I bought, I had at least one coupon for. I had also loaded my Kroger card with some coupons as well. I did not know that the coupons that are loaded on your card could be stacked with your paper coupons! What an awesome surprise! The coupons I had that were up to .50 cents, were doubled at my Kroger. I have heard a lot of Kroger's in other areas are tripling coupons but, unfortunately not ours.

When the cashier took off the last coupon and my total dropped under $30.00, I think I did a little "Yippee" squeal! LOL So, I gave her my $30.00 Kroger gift card and I have a few pennies left on it.

This is why I love to coupon. After all your hard work of gathering the coupons, you can see the effort is so worth it! I have to say, I definitely used more printed out coupons than ones I cut out of the paper. I used all the sources I mentioned in my post about the $30.00 Kroger gift card giveaway HERE!

The coupons for all the Yoplait Fiber One yogurt came from being on the General Mills Pssst panel, which I have mentioned before in a post. Any time you see a company that offers you the opportunity to join their site, do it. They often send you new product to try and they send out awesome coupons. With those coupons, each of the 4 packs of yogurt came out to .29 cents each. One of the 4 packs was free with the coupons from Pssst.

Here is a picture of my receipt. It isn't very good because the receipt was so long and it was crazy trying to scan it. But, you can click on the picture to get a bigger view.

All the yogurt I got, I would like to say I will have the chance to freeze some, but I sincerely doubt it. Everyone here loves yogurt and will have one for breakfast every day. And not to mention, using them for parfaits and smoothies. As a matter of fact, last night my husband used 1 four pack along with some frozen berries and made us all smoothies. They were delicious!

I was very excited to get the brownie mixes as well. I did not have even one box of brownie mix left in my house! With the holidays coming up, it's nice to have a little stockpile of easy and quick treats to make.

This Mega Sale event at Kroger is going on for another week or so (all areas are different)so, now is the time to go through your coupons and print off matching coupons from the online sources and head to Kroger for a nice "stock up" shopping trip! I might try to get back over there and do another shopping trip myself.

And to REALLY save some money, you could win a free $30.00 Kroger Gift Card and be able to pay for all of your shopping trip like I did, without a single penny from your pocket!!

So, hurry up and enter my Kroger card giveaway! It ends tomorrow, Sunday August 23 at midnight!!

And once again, I want to thank the awesome folks at MyBlogSpark, PepsiCo and General Mills for hosting this giveaway and for the gift card they sent me!
