Be On The LookOut For Coupons At Kroger: FREE Wipes!


While I was in Kroger I found a mini fold-out coupon booklet on their store brand (Comforts) baby formula.

These coupons were attached to the top of the biggest can in their product line.

Inside their was a coupon for $2 off of any Comforts Formula or Wipes product.

I grabbed 1...took a look at the wipes...and found a pack that was $1.99!

FREE Wipes!

Good Luck With The Hunt! I hope you can find them too!

I personally don't think you should take a coupon off of an item unless you are planning on buying that item. That is not fair. I went to Kroger yesterday to get some Danimals yogurt which was $2. I had a $1 off coupon. When I got home, I noticed there was a coupon on the outside of the package for $1 off as well. I went back to Kroger to get some more and someone had removed all of the coupons. Just my 2 cents.

Anonymous,

Thank you for stating your opinion.

I agree that their are those out there who snatch all of the peelies off of products. This highly upsets me.

I have actually caught someone doing this and briefly made a comment "are you going to leave any for me?" She turned red and handed me one of the coupons that she had in her hand! I am hoping that by confronting her...she may think twice about doing it again...but if she was doing it to start with, then something makes me feel that next time she will just try to hide it better!

I have to disagree a little on taking a coupon if you don't buy the product.

I see many coupons on packaging that aren't even for the product itself. Johnson & Johnson is notorious for putting coupons on their bath items for $1 off of Desitin creme.

This particular Kroger coupon stated that you could use it on Comforts Diapers, Wipes, or Formula. Their were 4 or 5 that I saw...but I only pulled one off.

Just a few weeks ago I saw a coupon on the Comforts Brand Diapers that was a $3 off coupon for the diapers.

This is a form of advertising for the companies. They want you to buy one item and then go back (or in same shopping trip)and purchase the other but the coupons can be used on either product and you don't have to purchase both.

I actually have spoken to many of my local store managers asking if their was a store policy on this and their isn't. They know that people are going to pull them off but only frown if you are trying to take all of them!

Each and every one of them have told me that they are their for the consumers to use. If they catch someone pulling all of them off they will actually confront that person and make them hand them over (I had a manager tell me that she did this once).

This really gets down to coupon ethics for me. If you take 1 or 2 I don't see a problem with it...but if you are being greedy then YES their is a problem.

I see tips on various sites for peelie coupons and have gone to check the deals out for myself only to find the same that you did...that they had all been pulled off.

Their is actually a hidden secret to these peelie and blinkie coupons. The manufacturers will send the coupons for the stores to stick to the packages (they do not come this way when they are shipped to the store!)The same goes for the smartsource blinkie machines.

If you see a peelie or a blinkie coupon take one and wait to use it! I can almost guarantee you that that particular item will go on sale in the next 2 weeks!

Here are some examples...

The $3 comfort coupon that I found was on the package when they were regular price...then 1 1/2 weeks later they went on sale for $5.99. Instead of paying retail and using a coupon you should always wait until that item is on sale (unless you absolutely need it in that shopping trip).

Another example were the .75/1 and $1/1 Kraft cheese Blinkies that were in Publix and Kroger. I grabbed a few of each and guess what...1 week later Kroger had the mega event where Kraft Cheese was $1.99 and if you bought 10 you received the instant $5 off.

By the time the sale went on...the blinkie machines were gone. These coupons made the cheese .50 and .75 each after the mega deal!

Companies put coupons on products in hopes that you will buy that product at regular price (again as a form of advertisement/product awareness).

A smart shopper will always wait until that item is on sale...this goes for all coupons!

I don't go around each store looking for peelies to keep. I only take the peelies for products I know that I will purchase and use!

I would love to hear anyone else's opinion on taking coupons off of products (in moderation)!

Be honest...you won't hurt my feelings...everyone has their own right to their opinion!

I personally feel that it is ok to do this but as I see someone else doesn't agree with that and you may not either!

What do you think? What is your opinion? Argue the rights and wrongs...who makes the rules?
