* Macomb area Kroger stores currently double coupons up to $0.50. However, as of October 2009, only 3 manufacturer’s coupons will be doubled per like items purchased.

You can now view the Kroger coupon policy for Michigan here.

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 north of Macomb (Grand Blanc, Flint, Frankenmuth and more – view a full list 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! Visit 1-2-3 Save for matchups that include doubles up to $1!
Take your own bags to Kroger and you’ll receive a credit for $0.05 per bag used on your shopping order. You may need to remind your cashier to deduct your credit, however, as the computer will not do it automatically!
Load e-coupons to your Kroger card before you shop: visit Cellfire, 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.

This post is a proud part of Be Centsable’s Grocery Gathering. Visit the Grocery Gathering for a HUGE free listing of national and local store matchups from around the country, including CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, Walmart and more!

Groupon: Bargain Coupon Offers (NOW in Detroit!)

If you haven’t signed up for Groupon yet (it’s free to register), you may want to now! Groupon has been very successful in other cities and TODAY Groupon has officially arrived in Detroit! It’s FREE to register and there’s no obligation for you to participate in any future offers! Watch the video HERE to learn what its all about! 

Some helpful explanation (directly from today’s Groupon Deal Alert): 

Since this is everyone’s first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.

Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Detroit: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. We call it “collective buying power.”

If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (15 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires-today’s expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!

It’s nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life’s cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.

It’s a win-win situation, since you get a great deal AND the company benefits from your business! Another cool feature: Groupon offers can be gifted to others (since you pay via credit card when you agree to an offer)!

Groupon looks like a great way to save money and I’m so glad it’s finally here (our friends in Cleveland really love their daily Groupon deals)! If you own a business, you can learn how to work with Groupon to develop a featured deal. If you don’t live in Detroit, check to see if Groupon is already operating in a large city near you!

I’m sure you’re curious to learn about today’s Groupon half-price offer – so go ahead and check it out! Then let the rest of us know what you think!
