Get more at Kroger

Do you do your grocery shopping at Kroger? Through the end of July, they’re offering a bonus 10% on all in-store purchased gift cards in the amounts of $300, $600, or $1200.

I know it seems like a lot of money to lay out up front, but if you do most of your food shopping there and can afford this, it’s an easy way to save 10% on your groceries over the next few months.

(I’m torn, because these days I do most of my shopping at Publix. I pop into Kroger for shelf-stable stuff now and then, though, so I will probably go ahead and buy a $300 card….)


  1. I got $1200 at the beginning of summer when the stimulus checks came. They have been a big help for us since you can also use them for gas.

  2. I got the $1200 with my stimulus check, too. I didn’t know they could be used for gas, though!

  3. I did this the week before school got out. My Kroger has a Starbucks. I used my $330 to buy teachers (and myself) Starbucks gift cards. After the (carefully picked for deals only) groceries, Starbucks, and gas for both cars…I ran out pretty quick! I had to reload last week!

  4. I’ve already run through half my $300 card – mostly on gas. I need to go buy a couple more, because at the rate gas is going up, I’m going to need it!

  5. I was able to afford a $300 card this month, and I’ve found that Kroger’s has the lowest prices on meat and milk in my area. If you go to their website, you can click on a link to have coupons for Proctor Gamble stuff loaded straight onto your member’s card. Those coupons stack with paper coupons and can yield some awesome deals. I picked up Pantene for $1.17 a bottle (of course, I made sure to get the bottles with 25% more free!)

    When you buy the gift card, you automatically get 15 cents off each gallon of gas. When you use the card, you can get more discounts off gas to use later. Can’t beat that.
