I had a little bit of time to waste before I went home today, so I decided to stop by Kroger and see what Smartsource coupons I could snag (the red machine that spits out coupons, you can find them at varying spots in the store, next to the products they are good for. Can be used at ANY store!).
Anyway, I have a theory that Kroger puts out these coupons just before a sale on that item, then they take them away and if they have any left after the sale, they put them back out. 3 weeks ago they had Smartsource coupons for $1 off any 1 variety Ore-Ida Steam N Mash Potatoes, the next week the machine was gone and the Steam N Mash potatoes were 2/$4. But I was smart and snagged about 10 coupons when they were up! I got 5 bags for 5 bucks. Today, they had them back up but the price was $4.99 per bag! Check back in as I test out my theory and we see if some of these things end up on sale in the next couple of weeks!

So, remember to pick up those coupons when you are walking or browsing through the store! I didn't purchase a single item from Kroger today and got multiple coupons for 23 different items. 10 minutes worth of work and tons of savings. You are NOT limited to using these coupons to just Kroger. Smartsource coupons are manufacturer coupons and accepted everywhere you can use a coupon.
These coupons vary by region just like the newspaper insert coupons. Have a few coupons I missed or one that might not be in my region that I should be on the lookout for? Please feel free to share the savings alert and keep in touch to see if I can prove my theory about when and why Kroger puts these coupons out.
