*EXPIRED* Kroger Mega Event $30 Giveaway

by Freebies4Mom on August 18, 2009 8:21 am

Kroger is holding a Mega Savings Event where you get a $5 instant savings when you buy 10 participating products. Thanks to General Mills and PepsiCo, I received a $30 Kroger gift card to take to the store and see how far I could make it go with this promotion. I also will give one of my lucky readers a $30 Kroger gift card. I’ll share exactly how far I made my $30 gift card go later this week!

Participating Stores
Remember that participating stores include many stores in The Kroger Family. Be sure to check your local store ad for details on participating products. The promotion start date varies across this week, at my Kroger it starts on Wednesday, August 19. The promotion ends the last week of August/first week of September, at my Kroger it ends on Tuesday, September 1.

Participating Products
General Mills and PepsiCo products are participating in this promotion. See your local store sales ad for details, but here’s a general list. 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!

Up the Savings with Coupons
The key to saving the most money is to double-up on the types of savings you get. Kroger is giving you $5 instant savings, and you can use coupons to increase that savings. During promotions like this, I try to use one coupon on every single item I purchase as a participating product. Here are sources of coupons I’m turning to as I prepare to get the most bang for my $30 at – offers tons of coupons on General Mills products participating in this promotion

If I win I am giving this Kroger gift card to my best friend in Indiana she is a single mom and would appreciate it greatly!

I would stock up on things for school lunches. My son is starting pre-school this year and has severe allergies so I have to pack his lunch and Kroger has a lot of good allergy-free food.

Heather,I couldn't remember if I entered already, so please delete any duplicates and sorry if I entered twice (asbender20[at]yahoo[dot]com.I stocked up on more fruit snacks and granola bars – these are an even better deal since you get the $5 off 10 Mega Deal deal AND when you buy 5 you get a $3.50 OYNO Catalina for the fruit snacks & granola bars – see Andrea's (MommySnacks) Kroger post for details.My area Kroger is also having a Unilever Deal where you buy $15 in participating items and save $5 instantly as well. Not sure if this is in all areas as I have not seen any posts about it (I'm in VA).Anne

Petula August 20, 2009 at 11:57 am

This is a great giveaway. So far all I have on my list is the Pillsbury and the cereal. I've found that I prefer making my Hamburger Helper homemade because it's just as easy. HOWEVER, I don't know if I can resist having this on hand since it's such a great deal. Thanks!

My parents only shopped at Krogers and I have never shopped any where but Krogers so I enjoy any promotion that they have. This is great. Thank you Heather for sharing with us. I also grew up on Pepsi and drink nothing but Diet Pepsi since adulthood.

I am doing the Pillsbury biscuits, cerel, BC brownies and Fiber 1 bars. Great site, thanks for the opportunity to win the Kroger $30.


Anonymous August 18, 2009 at 10:41 pm

The same thing is happening to me when I get on this site. It goes to the middle of the page. Ok now I know it's not my computer.


Nancy August 18, 2009 at 9:20 pm

At my Kroger you could only do 3 mega deals per transaction even though none were mention in the ad. I tried 4 and only 3 came off. Love your site.


Jen B August 18, 2009 at 8:36 pm

I'm not sure why, but something odd has been happening for the past couple of days when I get on your site. The page jumps to the middle of the blog posts, rather than staying on the header and first post. Have you changed something or do you think it's a problem with my computer. I don't have this problem with any other blogs.Thanks,Jen


Julie August 18, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Can't wait to see how far your $30 went at Kroger.My Kroger has been having great deals lateky; especially last Saturday – doubled up to $1. I was in heaven!


Nancy W. August 18, 2009 at 7:13 pm

I guess cereal and fiber One bars and yogurt.Nancy W.(


Darline August 18, 2009 at 3:44 pm

Can anyone tell me if they are experiencing difficulty "stacking" coupons at Publix grocery stores? I was stacking coupons today at the self checkout. The cashier actually came over and deleted several of my coupons, stating I was over the limit for products purchased. He then open the coupon drop box and gave me back the coupons that had already been accepted (the ones he had deleted.) I have never had this happen. I only shop "coupon friendly" stores. Let me know if this is happening at other stores. Thanks!


Patricia August 18, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Cereal and yogurt!!Thanks Heather!


Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom August 18, 2009 at 11:18 am

I'm planning on cereal, granola bars, and Pillsbury bread products mostly. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂


Lori August 18, 2009 at 10:30 am

I got Pillsbury Grands and Crescents, Hamburger Helper, Betty Crocker Supreme Brownies, and Fiber One bars. It was cheap!


April August 18, 2009 at 8:54 am

Great giveaway! I'm stocking up on the Pillsbury Grands, Hamburger Helper, and cereal. That's all I can remember right now. My list is in the other room and I'm going to try to get out today between rain showers.
