A new contest: Free groceries!

By Mir
January 28, 2008
Category Contests

I realize that not all of my readers live in the Land of Kroger, but if you do, it could be your lucky day:

The nice folks at Kroger recently redesigned the Kroger.com site, and they’re trying to get the word out about all the new features you can find there, now. (I am particularly intrigued by the Gift Center ordering, where you can order your flowers and such before you even step foot in the store.) If you shop at Kroger, it’s definitely worth checking out. Trust me; finding the circular online is a lot easier than trying to dig it out of the recycling bin. Ahem.

Anyway, one lucky Want Not reader is going to receive a $25 Kroger gift card just for being so gosh-darned pretty. To enter, leave a comment on this post before Wednesday, January 30th, at 11:59 p.m. Winner will be determined by random drawing. One comment per person, please, and if you don’t live near a Kroger or know someone you can give the card to who does, well, sit this one out. More contests are coming, I promise.



  1. woo hoo! I can definitely use free groceries! I feel special–or just very un-busy–to be leaving the first post.

  2. Boy it would be great to win!! Kroger is my store of choice.

  3. Let’s go Krogering, Krogering! And free groceries from Kroger is better yet! Thank you Pretty Shopper!

  4. Count me in Mir!

  5. I’m the prettiest!! Pick me!

    I shop at Kroger religiously since they put in the gas pumps. After you spend $100 in groceries (and that doesn’t take long when you have children), you get $.10 off per gallon. It’s pretty sweet.

    Plus, if your a coupon whore like I am, they match up to $.50 and their sales rock.

    Ok, I’ll stop advertising for them now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Definitely not pretty, but I could use the card for grooming supplies to improve my looks!

  7. I hope this applies for their Ralph stores as well. Thanks pretty Mir.

  8. Would love a Kroger gift card! Crossing my fingers ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks Mir!

  9. I would love to win! I just found your blog and WOW a giveaway to boot! Look forward to reading further!

  10. I love Kroger!!!

  11. Count me in!

  12. Spending less on groceries was one of my New Year Resolutions, so a $25 gift card would be just lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Would love to win this. I shop Kroger weekly, but this card would go to the family of my son’s classmate. They have had a family member hospitalized since November and the classroom families are gathering giftcards of different types to help them out. Crossing my fingers for good luck!

  14. If I got a $25 gift card, I could spend $25 of my grocery budget on something else, like pretty pretty shoes! So it would make me really happy to win.

  15. You’re pretty, I’m pretty, who doesn’t like groceries?

  16. Thanks for offering another great giveaway, in addition to all the super deals.

  17. This is awesome, and $25 would buy a lot of groceries for this college girl.

  18. I am also a Kroger devotee with the 10 cents off gas deal! So, I wanna go Krogering with an extra $25! I am making use of your suggestions last week with the frozen meats/produce – I got strawberries, beans and onions this week!

  19. Count me in as well!

  20. Count me in – this would be great to use to purchase snack supplies for my special ed classroom!

  21. Love me some Kroger!

  22. I don’t shop regularly at Kroger, but I like to go there every once in a while and get stuff that I can’t find at Walmart.

  23. Long time reader–first time commenter. I use Kroger all the time, esp. since the only other option is Walmart.

  24. I can always use free groceries and Kroger is available!

  25. I would love this gift card! Kroger is the perfect balance between inexpensive and decent quality as far as grocery stores in my area go.

  26. Ooh, I’d give the card to my pretty, pretty sister, who is a coupon goddess and could get like $200 worth of groceries at Kroger with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. yes! please! thank you!

  28. I go Krogering!

  155. Please!?

  156. Oh I loved Kroger when I lived in Atlanta! Now I just use their website to mail my dad some gift cards from time to time. Thanks for this!

  157. Ah Kroger, I know thee well. I am due to pop out my first offspring on Thursday, but I am hoping against hope s/he decides to make an appearance TONIGHT! Or TOMORROW! because I am very sick of being pregnant.

    However, I know that with said offspring comes many unexpected expenses. Free Kroger Cash would be awesome.

    May the random-drawing fairies be with me, and may they bring their friends, the labor-inducing fairies. Amen.

    You are awesome!

  167. Kroger is my fave! I coudl defintely use some free groceries! Thanks Mir!!

  168. We used to shop pretty much exclusively at our local Krogers before the store closed – now the closest one is 10 miles away and they no longer $1 off coupons, but a gift certicate would make me go the extra effor to make a visit to Krogers.

  169. Wowo, I didn’t even realize this many people still “Kroger-ed” — in our small town the Wal-Mart is taking over. It’s nice to see so many people going “Krogering”. Sorry, I can’t help it, it just makes such a great verb!
