More Happy Friday

Groceries in a kroger cart

One reader stacked coupons to save BIG on groceries.

Some people think clipping coupons is a waste time, but they couldn’t be more wrong. It’s true that you can really save when you take advantage of those deals. One way to get the most out of your coupons is to try to stack offers whenever possible. This week’s Happy Friday reader, Amy, did just that and she practically got her Kroger groceries for FREE!! 🙌 Here’s how!

“I wanted to share a little Kroger trick that I tried that ended up being even sweeter than I originally thought! I have been using Meijer for our pharmacy needs (despite doing most of our grocery shopping at Kroger), but recently, they were out of stock with a med, and so I transferred the Rx to Kroger.” 

Kroger Coupon stacking

“Luckily, I checked my Kroger Rewards coupons first, and there was not one, but TWO $50 coupons that would be applied to my next grocery order for a transferred Rx. I clipped away and then hoped. Would they stack? Well, sure enough, with my pickup grocery order this week, not only did those 2 Rx transfer coupons stack, but they ALSO stacked with a $10 off of $75 AND a $10 off of $110 pair of coupons AND the rest of my regular coupons I had clipped!”

“I paid $4.42 for groceries that normally would’ve cost almost $150! I at first didn’t even have enough in my cart to honor the full $100, so we bought meat ahead for next week to make sure we reached the $100. SO. AMAZING. If you have the ability to transfer prescriptions, check your account and see if they’re offering transfer coupons, because WHOAAAA!”

Way to go, Amy! Clipping and stacking coupons really make a difference! That is an AMAZING price for so many groceries! Thank you so much for sharing this savings tip with us! 🥰

Save more on prescriptions too…

If you’re looking for cheap prescription medications, we have a tip for you! Amazon recently created a monthly subscription service called Rx Pass that is available to Amazon Prime members.

If you’re a member, this is a great opportunity. For a super low price of just $5 a month, you can get all your generic medications and they will be delivered right to your door! The service includes popular generic medication for over 80 common conditions like high blood pressure, arthritis, and diabetes. It is such a great program for those looking to save on their medications!

If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, there are still ways to save! You can find great savings on GoodRx. Also, don’t forget to check for coupons at your local pharmacy! You might just spot a great deal as Amy did.

Groceries and medicine are two essentials we all would love to get for a good price. Thanks again, Amy, for sharing your tip on how to switch to the Kroger pharmacy and score stackable coupons to save on groceries. This is a fantastic tip and will help many of our readers who have a Kroger nearby! 💛

    I don’t do Kroger. But I do Jewel Osco and with 5 Rx pick ups I get 20% off grocery. Max of 40.00. This has saved me a bundle. Because of this I will not get our RX through Exscripts.
