Kroger Matchups: September 6-11, 2011

These Kroger deal matchups have been created using the Kroger store ad for the Metro Detroit area, where coupons double up to $0.50 (limit 3 identical coupons per order). I’ve listed only what I consider to be the best deals for your money this week.

The previous week’s ad lasted through Labor Day, covering 8 days total. This week’s ad will begin on Tuesday instead of Monday.

LAST POST UPDATE: Sunday, September 4 at 10:30 p.m. EST

Note to Bloggers: I would love for you to feature portions of this post on your blog. Please select 5 of your favorite deals to share and include a linkback to the original post (see example). If you have questions, please contact me.

* Macomb area Kroger stores currently double coupons up to $0.50. However, only 3 manufacturer’s coupons will be doubled per like items purchased.

View this week’s complete Kroger Ad.

Kroger Catalina Promotions

Unless otherwise stated, all Catalina offers are limited to one per transaction. Read more about what to do if your Catalina coupon doesn’t print as expected.

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.

    I dont know if the folgers instant is on sale…but on the folgers fb page there is a coupon for .35 off one package of folgers instant.

  2. 2

    kari says

    found a 50/1 3oz or larger folgers product on under zip 28352

    Also i found the garden of eatin peelies in owosso for 1/1 but they are dnd

      Chris says

      Ikea has them 10 for $1.99. The quality is pretty good too. As for name brand, I seem to remember seeing pretty good prices every couple of months. Keep your eyes peeled.

  3. 9

    Kati says

    The Eckrich Smoked Sausage coupon for $1/2 is a Do Not Double so it would make the sausages $1.50 when you buy 2, instead of $1 each. Also, there was a Zatarain rice mix coupon in the 8/28 inserts for $1/3 making them .62 each so it’s a better deal than the printable of .50/2 (if your store doubles $1).

  4. 11

    jamie says

    Boxtops4education has the Pillsbury Grands Biscuits $1 off 2 and more pillsbury coupons for the sale this week. The $1 oj and lemonade (simply orange? sorry forgot the name) coupons on makes them .59 or free if your store doubles them on the sigle serving size. Thanks for all you do Jolyn:)

    christine says

    yes I am and I feel like these sales look like last weeks sales. Do they do that. Have so many same sales 2 weeks in a row?

    • 13

      Shelley says

      Yes Kroger tends to run the same sale for two weeks in a row, with the exception of a few different items. The one nice thing about it though is if you miss shopping one week, you can still catch the deals the next : )

  6. 14

    Angie says

    Beware*** Tried the P&G deal and used coupons at my local Kroger tonight and the coupons beeped saying I had already used a mfg coupon. The cashier and a manager both asked if I had already loaded coupons to my Kroger card and I said no. The P & G promotion was showing as a “mfg coupon”. When I showed them the ad and explained that it was a promotional discount and NOT a coupon, the manager did an override to allow use of the paper coupons I had.

    carey r says

    dawn dish soap with olay on sale as part of the buy 4 get 4 off 2.99- 1.00 = 1.99 – 1.00 coupon = .99 free if your store doubles

    oral b glide floss 2.50 – 1.00= 1.50 – 1.00/1 coupon = .50 or free if store doubles…….both found in P&G 8/28

  8. 16


    Anyone else experiencing poor service at the Kroger’s in Owosso lately?
    I have been shopping there for 10 years, never had a problem but the last three times have been a nightmare. I told the manager saving a few dollars is not worth being treated with a lack of respect and poor time management on their part. No lines open. I think I will start shopping at Meijers!

    • 17

      Matt says

      Its all about the casher you get in Owosso. I go 3 times a day and just lay my coupons on my items and it helps them out alot. I did have a problem last week with a casher because someone made money with coupons so she freaked and looked at every coupon took 20 min to check out. So i know never to go to here again. Went to Flushing today and they were very nice paid 97 cents for $80 in stuff even got the tax kinda paid for. If anyone in owosso reads this i am probley the only guy with a coupon book, so if you need a few coupons just ask if i am matt i have way to many right now and don’t know what to do with them all. Its fun giving them away.

    • 20

      Marnie says

      They had to fire several cashiers a month ago for not handling coupons right, and now they all check EVERY coupon carefully and they make sure you have the correct items to correspond to your coupons. It takes FOREVER to get through now! I have complained to corporate, but have not received an answer. Also, EVERYONE needs to complain about them no longer doubling Catalinas! They are manufacturer coupons, and there is no reason they should not be doubling them. No answer from corporate on that issue, either. I have been shopping more and more at Meijer and V.G.’s.

    Patty says

    Hershey’s syrup is $1.86 and there is a $1 off 2 out right now making it .86 each when you buy 2.

    TLA says

    Example, 1 KitKat, 1 Air & 1 Hersey Almond for $.89

    I got 39 Herseys Candy bars for just under $12

    Lucy A says

    My Kroger would not accept the Minute Maid coupons. They said that the coupons states that it is for “Novelties” only, plus the cups are not in the picture, besides, then I would be getting them for “Free”. The supervisor said, sorry, but the computer will not accept them. :(
    Oh well, no frozen snacks for me or mine right now then.

  12. 40

    Julie says

    Some Krogers have Triaminic Cough& Sore throat 4oz marked down to 99cents(reg price 5.27)- use 1$/1 coupon(sorry don’t know what insert)=FREE! Some also have Claritin childrens clearanced(price varies 2.00-3.00), use 2.00/1 Claritin childrens coupon= 1.00-FREE!

    Marianne says

    If anyone in the Genesee county area is looking for more of the P&G promo I was at the Bristol Road store at lunchtime and they had restocked most everything other than Febreze products. Lots of the freebies back in stock..

  14. 44

    Kim says

    Look for Kraft Mac & Cheese 5 pack on sale for 3.50 with attached peelie for one free Capri Sun roamin waters

  15. 45

    Pam says

    For Me Kids toothpaste on sale for 2.50 will be .50 after the coupon and the For Me floss sticks will be free after the coupons from the P&G

  16. 46

    A says

    Grand Blanc had plenty of everything and went and got a pallet of Febreze. The Scope had boxes with free sample and coupon book someone opened every single one and stole the coupon books. This burns my butt I don’t care if you take peelies but this is a line crosser.

  17. 47


    Grand Blanc staff puts up with us shopping in a frenzy and we should so the righth thing when using coupons. I am right with the other person who found someone had taken all the coupons out of the Scope sample box that was attached. They opened at least 7 boxes and took all the coupons Buy that Scope if you want the coupons- all I can say is shame on you!

  18. 48


    My girlfriend and I were at the kroger in grand blanc and I saw the scope that you were talking about with the coupons missing that is just awful. We drove from shelby for the first time to double our coupons since no one around here is doubling coupons anymore. People should remember we are all trying to get a good deal and make our money stretch in this economy. Denise
