The Proof- Kroger

krogerlogoMost of my Shortcuts e coupons did not come off of my bill yesterday. Frustrating. I went to he site and filled out the form to report it, I have not yet heard back but I’ll let you know. Anyway, on to the deals.  I saved 37%.  I know not my highest percentage by far but, I only spent $60. This is keeping me right on track for the $75/week budget. Here are the best deals I got.

Update- I called Kroger customer service to see if I could get on the great coupon mailing list. The nice lady checked my information and said it have not been validated. So, I am now updated and valid and on the look out for my Kroger mailer!

    I have noticed that my shortcuts have not worked in a while especially when cellfire are used on the same order. I have started doing these items seperate just to make sure they work. I am curious on the response from Shortcuts. Also, the Kroger mailer is awesome! You will love them!!

  2. Katie,
    When you have 2 ecoupons for the same item you can't use them both unless you buy double… for instance on your Yoplait you would of had to of bought 12 yogurts to get both of the coupons to come off. I'm not a huge fan of of ecoupons because it's too confusing at the check out and very unrealiable. Good score on the comforts! Do they leak on you? I can only use them during the day, but hey better than not at all huh?

    I didn't get to use any of my shortcut coupons two weeks ago, and I didn't have any other e coupons on the transaction. Very disappointing! Oh well, I look forward to seeing the response.

    With those mailer coupons from Kroger you can use more than one at a time. They let me use 3 yesterday! I saved $16 just from those coupons. It really helped since I didn't have a lot of good coupons. It took my shopping for the week down to $48. I was pretty happy with that.

    Can you give us the contact info for getting “validated” for the Kroger mailer? I would love to get those!

  6. I called 1-866-221-4141, the number on their contact page. I then chose the update your information option. When someone asked I just asked about getting the mailer and they sent me on to someone else. I think calling is worth a try- now we will both be obsessively watching our mailboxes. :0)

    I am having the same problem. One of my coupons did not come off. I emailed them and they said “we'll give you that coupon plus a .10 bonus.” It was supposed to come off my bill the next time I shopped. It did not-only the .10 came off. I emailed them again (maybe two more times), but have not heard back-it's been a couple weeks…I don't think there's a phone number listed for them. I think i'll try once more to email them although I'm getting a little irritated…

  8. The coupons you get in the mail from Krogers are wonderful. They are based on what you buy, so you don't get a lot of coupons you wouldn't use. I got one for a free large jar of Hellmans mayo, several for Kashi, and Morning Star. I was a happy camper with those!

    So, shortcuts sent me the following email:

    Hi Honey,

    Thanks for contacting us. We have encountered a technical limitation regarding some Shortcuts.com cash coupons and the redemption process. We are currently working through this issue. In the interim, we will coordinate with Kroger to have a credit placed on your account. The Shortcuts.com cash coupon will expire and fall off.
    Apologies
    Shortcuts.com

    Hopefully they will follow through and it will all work out. And I had a problem today with the catalinas for countrytime and Velveeta/Kraft shells and cheese. I went to customer service and a very nice lady called them and relayed all my info to them. They are supposed to mail me the catalinas. The countrytime catalina is not marked on the shelf, but we all know about it. The Kraft/Velv. one is marked on the shelf, but it still didn't work. I'm not sure why they are having problems now-at first they worked great for me…Katie, did you hear back from shortcuts?

  10. Read the FAQs on the cellfire website. If I am understanding this correctly, one e-coupon can be used for each item – meaning that cellfire and shortcuts will not come off of the same one item. I shopped Kroger today and had both types of coupons come off of my order but neither came off of the same item. I also e-mailed cellfire and shortcuts 2 weeks ago and haven't received a response on two coupons that did not come off.
