Should you load the e-coupons on to your Kroger Shopping Card.
The answer for us was no. We found we were actually spending more money, although less time couponing, when we loaded coupons on our shopping card. When you load an e-coupon on your shopping card, their cash registers automatically deduct the dollars off. When this occurs you cannot use another coupon with it. You also lose out on doubling.
The flip side to this question is when DO you load coupons on your card. We maintain that couponing is a lot of hard work. It can involve a lot of time sorting, clipping, matching, and planning. When you have the items loaded on your card, it is automatic. Load, shop and save. This is highly recommended for people who do not have the time or the inclination to spend a great deal of time couponing.
Whether you load your coupons or not, you MUST use a Kroger card. Your shopping dollars are tracked and you receive other benefits such as Kroger and Manufacturer’s coupons in the mail based on YOUR purchases. You also receive $0.03 off per gallon when you fill up at their gas station and when you spend $100.00 worth of groceries, that discount increases to $0.10 per gallon and literally in today’s crazy gas prices can save you dollars on your fill-up!
