Okay, so another successful shopping trip. It was long and made for an even longer day after an ordeal at work. So before I get to my warning and questions, here's this week's (or two week's) shopping summary....
Total before savings: $130.86
- Kroger Plus Savings - 24.63
- Coupon Savings - $24.45
Total Discount - $49.08 or 37.5%
Total Cost - $81.78
Now here's the warning I have...
According to Kroger's website - Ecoupons (the coupons you add to your Kroger card electronically) are NOT, I repeat NOT, doubled or tripled!!! I only found this out after looking at my receipt and going online to look at the FAQs
My example: I had a coupon on my card for $.30 off of 2 cans of biscuits. I had in my hand a clipped $.40 off of 3 cans of biscuits. I chose to use my $.30 off of 2 cans because when it's tripled, it would have been $.90 off. Well, they are NOT doubled or tripled. Now granted, I only lost $.60, but yes, it matters.
Another issue...I think...Here's where I need help. If I decide I don't want to use the coupon on the card and instead want to use my paper coupon..what do I do? I bought some things with coupons that I already had ecoupons on my card. The cashier didn't tell me that I had already used my ecoupon and can't use the paper one, she just kept scanning. I thought I was watching carefully and it sounded like everything 'beeped' when she scanned. So, she kept some of my coupons even though I didn't use them!! OR even though the Kroger website says you can't use both ecoupons and paper coupons, can you??
I feel like this post is VERY jumbled. I'm still not quite feeling up to par and my nose is raw from sneezing and blowing it. I hope this makes sense and some of you readers can help clear this up for me!! :-D
