I don't understand how you get or have Kroger Rewards=Store Rewards Earned.

Jaime

I think she is referring to the catalina coupons. She would have received $6.00 for the potatoes (in two transactions).

Laura Webber

Yep, Jamie, that's true! I spend store rewards as part of my transaction's payment, but then (because of certain purchases) I earn new store rewards to spend next time!

Monroe on a budget

Green beans? OK. I'd rather get the corn or peas : )

Laura Webber

I settled for the green beans! prefer the broccoli (for quiche) or the mixed veggies for chicken chili or a pot pie... wink!

Theresa

Thank you for the pictures! It helps me to look for the specific items that qualify. I would have never done the cottage cheese deal otherwise. I tend to rush on Saturday to scrape up the last of the deals.
I had a horrible experience last night at the self check at Meijer (8& Haggerty). (Ever have problems there? ) My fault I went late but NO catalinas printed. Since I checked out right at midnight(because of problems with items)I did not get my 11th item free. I was treated by the cashier like some sort of scammer. It was very uncomfortable!!! Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Laura Webber

8 & Haggerty is more expensive that the Middlebelt & 96 store FYI!

I would call corporate and explain the rudeness/unhelpfulness of your cashier, and I'd follow up at the customer service desk (with your receipt) the next time you went Meijering!
