This week Kroger Deals are listed here. Unfortunately, there are not that many coupon match ups because it is a Kroger product push, but hey it's 10/$10 which makes their participating brand $1

  1. I am new with this and have a question. Is it possible to go back to rp, ss, P&G and get postdated coupons or is the only way to get them when they come out? Plus any advice that may be useful for a beginner would be appreciated.

    Thanks

  2. Hi DK,
    I understand what is it like just starting off! Everyone is posting all these savings and using all the coupons and using all this foreign lingo and you wonder, "What and How in the World?" Trust me, it will all become clear soon. You will need to start collecting inserts now and just go forward. About a month or 2 down the road you will start catching up on the coupons that you will need to use. I have been told that you can not get past insert coupons from the Houston Chronicle, but have never contacted Smart Source or Red Plum directly. The best advice I can give is to definitely get multiple papers 3 at least(friends, office, neighbors who are not couponing)This will help when grocery stores do Mega Events or $5 off 10 Item Specials. You can get coupons from Ebay and the internet when you are looking for specific, but make sure it is a reliable source. And then check this website for coupon matchups and weekly deals to start raking in those savings. Hope this leads you down the right path to start off.

  5. Just an FYI....I do not do this, but you may want to purchase coupons on eBay or from The Coupon Master, The Coupon Clippers or Coupons Things By Dede. Please note before you do so, be sure to factor in your coupon expense into the cost of the item to make sure it is still worthwhile for you to purchase. Depending on shipping times you should get the coupons within a few days.
