My Grocery Deal of the Week!

Today, I had more than one grocery win. Though none of my purchases today were free, the deals I got were certainly worth it.

My first deal is on Suave deodorant. Kroger has it currently for $1.06. I had a coupon stashed away for $.50 off.  My local Kroger doubles manufacturer’s coupons automatically, which would make the coupon now worth $1. Thus, my deodorant cost a grand total of $.06. In my opinion, 94% savings is close enough to free!

My second deal was on Heinz Ketchup. If your child is anything like mine, you could potentially buy stock in the stuff! Thus, I try to keep plenty on hand in the event of a ketchup emergency. I had a coupon, again, for $.50 off. Since this was a manufacturer’s coupon, Kroger doubled it. This then turned my 40oz of ketchup into a $.99 purchase, which was a 54% savings over the original price of $2.18 for that size bottle!

Finally, one of my favorite deals was at the pump after I had completed my shopping. In my part of town, gasoline is currently running at approximately $3.43/gallon.  I drove about 10 miles south of my house (for the locals, that’s the Shackleford Kroger), where I saw on that the price was $3.30/gallon. For every $100 I spend at Kroger, I get $.10 off a tank of gas from their pump. Thus, $3.30 – $.10 = $3.20/gallon for gasoline! WIN!

Deals and coupon policies may vary from Kroger location to Kroger location. My actual shopping was done at the North Little Rock JFK location. My gas purchase, as I mentioned, was made in Little Rock on Shackleford (next to Famous Dave’s).
