Have you received a Catalina advertisement at a Kroger register? Please share in the comments!


You can now view the Kroger coupon policy for Michigan online.
Please that Kroger’s coupon policy clearly states in each store ad: Limit 3 Manufacturer’s Coupons will be Doubled (up to $0.50) per Like Items Purchased.

NOTE on Printable Coupons: Some Kroger stores have been denying the redemption of any printable coupon over $1, so proceed with caution when using printable coupons. You can view/print the Kroger Print-at-Home Coupon Acceptance Policy here, which does not specifically restrict the use of printables over $1.

You WILL need a Kroger card to take advantage of these offers; sign up for one at the Customer Service desk if you do not have one!


SELECT Kroger stores outside of Macomb (some stores in Saginaw and Genessee counties along with the Howell location – view a full list here or a map of stores here) will double manufacturer’s coupons up to $1.00! This can mean a great savings (and some potential free items each week). If your travels happen to take you north, check the Kroger ad (search by zip code) for the areas you’re passing through. You just might want to pack your coupons, too!

Load digital coupons to your Kroger card before you shop: visit Cellfire, P&G eSaver, Shortcuts and Kroger Digital Coupons. Each website lists the e-coupons that can be loaded onto your Kroger Card so that you can save even more! E-coupons are limited to one use per card and will NOT double. Kroger digital coupons may NOT be combined with actual paper manufacturer coupons.

      michelle says

      That is exactly what I was thinking. We go through those like crazy! I’m going to be using every coupon for them I have!

      LisaM says

      My Kroger in MI has changed all of their coupon policies and will only take 2 q’s from a specific manufacturer, so I was only able to get 4 strudels. Also ad stated the scrambles included in sale and store manager would not honor it. :(

  2. 8

    Marianne says

    Kroger had the Knorr stock for 2.99 (I did not look at the dates) but with the $2/1 q they are .99 -for 4 little tubs of stock. Each tub makes 3 1/2 cups of stock. I bought the beef and made stew and it was super yummy.
    They had them at Walmart for 3.38 each.

      Kimmy says

      Thanks Marianne, I picked up 3 pkgs of Knorr stock and I really like it. I would have never have found it without your post because it was on the top shelf!! I forgot to check when the sale ends….I hope to pick up a few more this week!!

    Kimmy says

    I’m not seeing that many coupon deals I’m interested in this week. I think this is a great week to search for meat deals at the different stores around town and stock up!!

  4. 23

    Angie says

    Also the small Dawn Renewal bottles are reg $1.49. If you still have your $1 off Q (doesn’t state size) = Free if your store doubles up to $1.

  5. 27

    FrugalBehind says

    Has anyone seen the Diaper Genie refills around here? I’ve only seen reports from people out of state and haven’t found any at our 2 closest stores :(.

  6. 29

    Christine says

    Hey everyone
    Pillsbury breakfast scramblers and sandwiches are on sale for 2 for $3. With the $1 off each coupon you can get them for 2/$1. Or if your store doubles to $1, you get it for FREE! :)

  7. 31

    Amanda says

    Anyone ever get a raincheck for the fruitables.. I know they have not been in for a long long time? I would really like to get some of them for .50 cents a 8 pack when they come in.

      Lindsey says

      I got a RC whenthey were on sale for $2.49 and I was able to pick up three this week. The coupons don’t expire until 12/31, so hopefully they’ll be on sale again before the end of the year

  8. 33

    Katie says

    I don’t have the $1 off Q for the Pillsbury Scramblers or Biscuits but has them when you register.

  9. 35

    Kimmy says

    I found an internet printable coupon for Roman Meal bread and managed to score some free bread since the coupon was for $1 off and Roman Meal bread is $1.79 this week. Whether or not your store double to $1 this is a pretty good deal.
