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.

Buy 2 MiO or MiO Energy in one transaction, get a $1.00 checkout coupon valid on your next order. Buy 3, get $2.00; buy 4 or more, get $3.00. (11/26-12/30)


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.

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!

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.

SELECT Kroger stores outside of metro Detroit (some stores in Saginaw and Genessee counties along with the Howell location – view a full list here) will double manufacturer’s coupons with face value of 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 did use the Goody hair product coupon at the Flint Kroger (Richfield and Center). The cashier said as long as the UPC started with a 5 or 99 they could use it. She also told me if a coupon printed on a computer does not scan, they will not take it. They will no longer put in the UPC themselves. She did give me a break on the DiGiorno pizzas, that coupon wouldn’t scan and she did put those 2 coupons in for me ($5.00 each). My mistake there was I bought all 6 in 1 transaction instead of 2. I got a catalina
      for $3.00 instead of 2 $2.00 catalinas if i had done 2 transactions.

    Watch out for the Kroger coupon grinch–she is at the krogers at Ryan and 15. She would not allow me to use 2 coupons printed from 2 diffrent computers because one of my computers prints in black and white (the one that the kids use). if you stand in line don’t go in the line with the old lady. She must not have good eyes, because my coupons were not copied . The coupons had diffrent numbers on them. I didn’t have time to get the manager. since I was on my lunch break.
