Please note that Kroger registers have changed in the past week. Though it previously varied by store, ALL locations will no longer allow the use of a digital coupon with a paper coupon. When coupons are combined on a single item, the register will note the conflict and the paper coupon will be refused.
On the Kroger digital coupon page, each coupon bears this warning when you click on “more info+”:
CONSUMER: No other coupon may be used with this coupon. Consumer pays any sales tax. Direct-to-Card coupons are easy to redeem. Simply swipe your store savings card at checkout for automatic savings. (Ref. 123456)
Limit of one coupon per item. Digital coupons and paper coupons may not be combined on the purchase of a single item.
To update, I requested a current copy of the official coupon policy for Michigan. Here is what I received via email. You’ll notice that the electronic coupons are only mentioned as not doubling:
Thank you for contacting the Kroger Co. The coupon policy for your region is as follows:
The store manager has the right to accept, decline or limit the quantity of coupons or items used or purchased in a single transaction, by a single customer, or in a single day.
General Coupon Policy
- Limit one (1) manufacturer coupon per item purchased.
- Limit one (1) store coupon per item purchased.
- One (1) manufacturer and One (1) store coupon can be used on the same item.
- A second or third coupon cannot be used on an item that is part of another coupon offer.
Example: Coupon states: Buy 2 cereals and get a gallon of milk free. Customer cannot use another coupon on the cereal or the milk. Coupons cannot be used on “free” items.
- Expired coupons are not accepted.
- Amount refunded cannot exceed the cost of the item.
Double Coupons (Michigan)
- Manufacturer coupons of $.50 or less will be “doubled”.
- Manufacturer coupons over $0.51 will be redeemed at face value.
This does not apply to “free,” Kroger, Retail Food Store coupons, electronic coupons on the Kroger Plus card, or items prohibited by law.Plus Card or items prohibited by law.
PAH (Print At Home) Internet Coupon Policy
- We only accept printable coupons if they scan properly at checkout.
- We do not accept “free product” printable coupons that have no purchase requirement.
- Buy-one-get-one-free coupons and other values that have a purchase requirement are acceptable but will be MUCH less common than traditional value-off coupons.
- We do not accept coupons for more than about 75% of a product’s value without advance notice.
- Legitimate PAH coupons will not be for a high value relative to the cost of the item. For example, a $2.00 off coupon will be acceptable for a product that normally sells for $5.00 or more, but a $2.00 off printable coupon for a product that sells for $2.25 is unlikely to be legitimate.
- Coupons will be rejected if they appear out of proportion or blurry, or are obvious duplicates.
- Legitimate PAH coupons are never copied, sold, or traded. Nearly all coupons are “non-transferable,” meaning they should not be photocopied or scanned and distributed to others.
- Coupons will be rejected if they appear to have been altered in any way.
- PAH coupons can be checked for validity at http://www.printcoupons.com.
- Competitor pharmacy coupons are not accepted.
- LCM or Competitor Coupons may not be used in conjunction with our $4 Generic Program.
I hope this information is helpful. If you have any further inquiries, please contact your local store manager.
