Coupon clippers, grab your scissors! On Saturday, Kroger is doubling dollar coupons for the first time in several years. “It’s just part of our overall pricing strategy to help the customer,” Kroger Spokesperson Gary Huddleston said.
The supermarket chain will double coupons up to $1 all day Saturday at all of its Texas stores.
Huddleston says savvy shoppers with the right coupons will walk out of the store with free groceries. “If the retail value of an item is $2 or less and you have a $1 coupon, absolutely the product is free!”
Using a stack of coupons from the newspaper we found a jar of Ragu for free and a 4-pack of Yoplait yogurt for 50 cents.
”I think that’s great,” Kroger shopper Happy Mangum said, “I’m sure I’ll be back by.”
The Kroger coupon deal is good for printed manufacturer’s coupons up to $1. There are some restrictions -- for example, you can only use the double coupon for one like item per transaction.
