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.

    Marianne says

    Hmmm, I was there Saturday and I was amazed at some of their price increases. Several items I normally purchase there which were cheaper with double q’s are now cheaper at Meijer.

  2. 3

    Rachel says

    Wondering with the Pepsi 24 pks, could I use 2 of the $2/ Off 2 Pepsi plus the $1 Off /when purchase 3 Pepsi Brands Coupon to maximize savings?

    • 4


      If you’re planning to purchase 2 24 pks, you’ll need to only use the $2.00/2 coupon. You aren’t allowed to use any additional manufacturer coupons on those 2 items.

  3. 5

    Mallory says

    Could I purchase 6 24 packs of Pepsi and use 3 $2/2 coupons and have the $2 come off each of them or does that only work once per transaction?

  4. 7

    Brittney says

    I was also wondering about the Pepsi products. Is there a limit to how many times the $2 off instantly is applied? Can I get 6 cases all for $5.50. Also what does “plus deposit” mean on the Pepsi products? Thanks.

    • 8

      Erin says

      “plus deposit” means you will pay 10 cents per can/bottle like we always do here in MI when we buy pop, for recycling.

  5. 9

    Merri says

    The ad says buy 2, save $2 “all other quantities $6.50″ so I read that as limit 2-24pks per transaction. I’d be interested to know if anyone tries to do multiple sets of 2 in one sale. “Plus deposit” applies to MI purchases where we have to pay $.10 per can/bottle in bottle deposit when we purchase pop and beer, then return the empties to get that $.10/can/bottle back. It’s charged in addition to the purchase price of the product.

    • 10

      Valerie says

      I did 2 transactions with 2 24 packs in each one…the $2.00 came off both times, not sure what would happen if you ring in the same trans.

    • 11

      Penny says

      I bought 4 yesterday on the same transaction and the $2 came off from both of them, so it worked for me.

  6. 12

    becky says

    In case anyone is going to buy the Transformers: .Dark of the Moon dvd, my kroger in flint had a tear pad in their display that was for $5 off when you buy the movie and an 8 pack energizer batteries (which were $5.97). The movie was on sale for $16.99(same as Target and Walmart). Basically got 8 batteries for $0.97!

  7. 14

    Kathy says

    On the Johnson’s Baby products does anyone know if there is a certain zip code for the Smartsource coupon. I found the one on but not on the smartsource link?

  8. 15

    kathy r says

    If you got the Kroger My Magazine Meal Ideas, there’s a $2 off Rubbermaid Food Storage and they’re on sale for bogo (prices starting around 3.19) you can pick up 2 for around .60/each

  9. 17

    Sara says

    The Davison Kroger doubles coupons up to $1.00, including internet coupons. Up to 3 like coupons, only. They will not let you use paper coupons in conjunction with coupons downloaded on your Kroger card, though.

    Kari says

    Thank you for posting all of the deals for the week. This is the first time that I have run across your site. It is very helpful. For example: I did not notice that the Marzetti Caramel Dip was on sale this week at Kroger for $2.50. But, I took my $l.00 off manufacturer’s coupons, jic. When I got there, there wasn’t any signs saying that it was on sale. I took it up to the check-out and have them scan the price. Sure enough, it was on sale. So I got each container for 50 cents. If you have never tried this dip, it is delicious. You can use it for desserts, too. It’s not just for dipping apples! T

    Kari says

    THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION. This week, I didn’t see the Marzetti Caramel Dip on sale at Kroger for $2.50 in the ad. Since you had it listed, I took my $1 off coupons in, jic. There weren’t any signs advertising the sale, but I had a cashier do a price check. Yes, it was on sale! I got two containers for 50 cents each! What a nice treat! Thanks again!

  12. 22

    Kit says

    Deals I stumbled across at the store (Mine doubles $1 coupons):
    Scissors with soft handles (school supplies area) – on sale $2.29 – $1 coupon = .29 cents.

    Old Spice Deo – on sale $1.69 – $1 coupon = free + .31 overage (Grand Blanc store 10-5, the register did NOT adjust the coupon price.)

  13. 23


    I was at owosso kroger’s today and found dark chocolate raisenettes on a manger special for 2.50. I had 2 1.00/1 q’s that made them each .50! I was doing the happy dance in the candy aisle.

  14. 24

    Eva says

    The coupon for the Campbell’s soup excludes the tomato and chicken noodle kinds. Were you able to use your coupon for these?
