All I can say is HOLY MOLY…this is one massive sale! Here are the items included in the Kroger What A Deal mega sale. It has taken a HUGE chunk of the day and several people to help me compile, type, and match up this list. There are still a few prices missing. If you have them, shoot them over and I will get them added.
With this sale, you will get $5 off automatically when you buy 10 participating items. The prices below are AFTER the mega discount.
I have listed as many coupons as I could find. Let me know if you find any that need to be added or any that need to be removed.
Remember, we will have two weeks to shop this sale. This list will be a work in progress!

DO NOT COPY & PASTE THESE DEALS OR MATCHUPS TO ANY OTHER SITE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION!!!
I would love a price on the bagelfuls if anyone has one! Thanks!
Wow! That’s a huge list! I really appreciate all the work you do.
Awesome list!! Thanks
Wow! Thanks. Best site on the Web for Kroger.
Wow! Thank you so much, you are the first full inclusion list I could find!
I found a blinkie for Hormel Chili a week ago $1/2 (any). Also I have an ecoupon (I don’t know when I saved it) for $1/1 Edwards or Mrs. Smiths whole pie.
Thanks for the reminder.
Thank you so much for compiling this list! I can’t imagine how time consuming it must have been. I really appreciate all your hard work!
Hi. I’m new to couponing and this site, but I don’t see a lot of the above items on my Kroger’s weekly ad. Is this regional? I’m in AL.
Thanks – by the way – in the 2 months that I have been doing this, your site has been the best at helping me figure it all out!! Thanks for all the hard work you put into this!
Yep–these should be included at all the stores. This is what drives me crazy about the mega sales…Kroger puts a TINY fraction of the inclusions in the ad. With a sale where you have to buy 10 items – you need to have the opportunity to plan. Do people really just walk around the store hoping they will find items in sets of 10 that they want to purchase.
Sometimes I really wonder if this is just a way to get people to think they are getting a sale. People see the discount on the tag and think they are getting that price no matter what…not realizing you have to buy the correct quantity of items to actually get that discount!!
I would bet that the average non-couponing person would not pay attention to the fact that they don’t get the price b/c they did not buy the correct amount.
Mega sales can be a good deal but they are really a nightmare b/c of the amount of work…good thing they last two weeks
Thank you so much! This is great news!!
I cannot begin to imagine the time and effort all of this takes. You are awesome!
You and I have the same theory. Even seasoned couponers can easily get only 9 items (especially when doing multiple groups, and even with a friend or bags to help) and then not get the coupon. I think Kroger intentionally does these sales and hopes that most people will not be able to figure it all out. BUT for those of us who do, it can mean a huge stock up of some smaller canned items especially. I appreciate your work! Thanks!
I saw this tip which I like on another blog. I put my mega items in reusable shopping bag so I can easily keep up with my items; I ususally one bag per ten items. I always double check the number before I head to checkout.
that is an awesome idea, you do not know how many times I count my items and I always come with a cheap extra just incase my math went wrong!
I have two little guys and our Kroger has the kids buggies so I get them to each keep up with 10 items each in their own buggy and then I can separate the non mega sale items in mine. If need to sometimes we do 20 in each of theirs but it’s still MUCH easier to count and recount with it all broken up like that.
I think, part of the reason why they do not put all the items on the flyer is so that you cannot price match at Target or Walmart. Thanks for Michelle we can plan at home!
Prior to becoming a couponer myself, I can say that I did honestly think the sale price was what I was getting that item for. I had no idea I had to get a certain amount of participating items. Thank goodness my sister introduced me to the coupon world!!
Thank you so much!
Thank you for all your work putting together this list!
Hi Michelle. Thanks for all you do! I have a question. Could we use the $1.50/1 pinesol MQ from the publix booklet (can’t remember the name, the one with the rebate form) to make the pinesol free? Thanks!
Sorry I just looked again and it’s a $1/1 pinesol coupon. Still, $.50 each is pretty good.
I went into my Kroger, hoping to get a good deal on the Pop Tarts and they were tagged 2/$4.00
does anyone know the details for the grands cat? I found the large packs of hormel mini pepperoni on in store special for $1.50 with a tear pad for $1 off one pack and one pack of grands. My teenagers love these so I bought 6 and 6 grands there was a cat tag on the grands buy 2 get $1.
I bought 6 but only got one cat same as the heinz and stovetop. I thought maybe they are going to start printing one per person?
I usually ask at cs about the cats but I had some things ring up wrong and I had already waited forever for price checks and adjustments. I did get one pepperoni free. The pepsi that rang up wrong was suppose to be buy 2 get one free. So all I got for that was a refund since it was suppose to be free in the first place. I’d rather everything ring up right than waste 30 minutes though.
I agree, awesome list! Just one question, how do we know what is a good stock up price?
Velveeta has in their packages a $1/1 (2 lb or larger.) Should match and make each one $4.69. In my book, that’s a great price especially with the holidays approaching and lots of yummy southern cooking that needs to be done.
My weekly ad says prices valid until 11/03…. Is it really going to last an additional week after that?
Yep – two week sale.
Love your Kroger list! I just got back from Kroger and I paid $12.48 for 20 items! I just wanted to add that the Dr. Pepper 2-liters are included in the Mega sale for $0.89 each (after 0.50 discount). I was able to pair this with the 10/07 SmartSource coupon ($1/2) and paid $0.39 per Dr. Pepper10 2 liter bottle.
Thanks for posting the complete Kroger list!
Yay! My favorite drink and I just got more coupons for it!!!! I am making my list now to shop tomorrow. Thank you for the long list of items!!!
Thanks for the complete inclusions and match-ups Michelle. Went Krogering today and did pretty well and your list made the trip much, much easier. Thanks again!
Does anyone know if the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest is included in the Ronzoni sale?
Yep–in the list above
Are the pup-pepperoni Mix-Stix included in the sale and catalina? What size is the deal for the poptarts?
Does anyone know the type & quantity on the Gillette Razor Refills, $20.70 – $29.99? I’m looking for Fusion or Fusion ProGlide & trying to see if this is the best deal. Thanks!
I went today and none of the Gilette Fusion ProGlide or ProSeries shave gel was included in the mega sale at my store. So, the coupon listed wont work with the mega sale.
Did you notice what type of Gillette Razor Refills were included?
No, I’m sorry. I was just looking at the shave gel.
The Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom were NOT included in the Mega Sale at my store (had an employee scan it). Also, I found a small card with all eligible items listed on it as I was leaving, in the vestibule on a cardboard display.
She does not have them listed as included – just the regular ones
Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom & Cream of Chicken Soups, $0.69
I got 10 of those soups and they were definitely on sale
She does a wonderful job listing the deals every time. There is a coupon listed for the Healthy Request, though, and I thought I would save someone from being confused.
oops…sorry about that– got it removed
There is also a $1/4 Great for Cooking soups coupon here: http://www.campbellskitchen.com/SavingsCenterLandingPage/CouponsAndSpecialOffers.aspx
Was at Kroger last evening in Murfreesboro, TN. Was told that there is new coupon policy whereby only one computer generated coupon will be accepted per product group, per trip (not per purchase, regardless of what coupon states). For instance I had 6 jars of gravy with 2 computer-printed MQs for $1 off 3. I could only use 1 computer generated coupon according to new policy. If this keeps up, I’ll be shopping at competitor stores more.
Geez, I thought 3 IP’s per trip was bad, now Kroger is reducing it to 1 IP? I’ll be with you shopping elsewhere. I have already reduced my shopping there QUITE a bit so I go when I have insert coupons that are a HUGE savings. I have in BTW, I’m Cedar Hill, TN
Yikes! I am in Memphis and I hope they dont start that here. 2 per Manufacturer is bad enough. I cannot shop a competitor because there are none. We have Kroger, Walmart and Target.
Make sure they are not confusing “digital” coupons with computer printed coupons. These are not the same thing. Digital coupons are the ones load to your Kroger card. The policy on Digital coupons is: Limit one use per digital coupon per transaction. That means you can use a coupon for a specific item once per transaction. Hope that helps.
Just left the Kroger’s in Harrison, Ohio, and had the same experience. They would not accept more than one of the same internet coupons for a product, if they had the same bar code. I have never had this happen to me before at this or any other local Kroger’s. I missed out on an additional $13.40 in coupon savings. I was very close to returning the products they wouldn’t let me use my coupons for. When I asked the manager, she stated that this coupon policy has been in effect for over a year, but some cashiers choose to or not to follow the policy, although they have all been instructed. Crazy, crazy, crazy!! What makes me so mad is that I had no more than 2 of any like internet coupons. I’m not out to wipe out the shelves or using 20 of the same coupons on a certain product. I’m just a mom trying to save some money at the grocery store, while also trying to be respectful to the coupon policy and other shoppers. Looks like Kroger’s will be seeing less of my business!!
Thanks so much for the detailed list and matchups, Michelle!!
Not sure how much the Gardeins are. Found $1/1 blinkies at Publix last week.
$1 coupon on coupons.com, zip 33133, for ICBINB. They are $1.49 after mega sale discount in Central Kroger region, so just $.49 after coupon!
My Kroger didn’t have the Dove Mens’ Body Wash for $2.99, just the bar soaps. Body wash was $4.99 each, so I ended up using my $2/1 on the bar soap.
I am lucky enough to have a Kroger that doubles up to 1.00 coupons (doubles them to 2.00). This makes a great deal of sale items free (and for the reach toothbrushes they are a 4.00 money maker). The problem is that the Kroger is packed with a bunch of what I call the “coupon crazies”. On any given day, there are 20+ women roaming around the store with gigantic binders full of clipped coupons. The sheer number of “coupon crazies” have caused the management to be less than nice to customers. I actually had to file a complain with the ftc and att. gen. office due to some severe problems at Kroger. BTW, if you need to file a complaint with Kroger, do it at the BBB and not through their complaint center. They will not answer any complaint through the complaint center, but they will immediately follow up if you file through the BBB.
This is such an awesome list. Thanks for all the time you put into this. Big thanks to the person who suggested separating 10 items into reusable sacks. The bane of my existence is making sure I have multiples of 10 . I will be Krogering tomorrow and will be using this trick!!
I went to print the hellman’s coupon and didn’t see where the coupon was. Am I missing something? Thank you for this list! It rocks.
We now have a SavingStar coupon for International Delight. Buy $15 by December 31st and get $5. I’m assuming they count the price before coupons, but what about before Mega Savings? If it’s after Mega Savings, you’ll need to buy 7 at the $2.49 price to get over $15. If it’s before, then you’ll need 6. I’m assuming it would be the price before Mega Savings, though I still don’t think I’d need 6 containers, even for the holidays. But if this is your creamer of choice, it makes a good deal even better.
Another tip I read to keep your order straight is to grab a basket when you grab your cart, and use it in your cart to keep track of your 10 mega items at a time.
