Tear Pads, Blinkies, Coupons with "5" and "9"

While I was in Kroger (in Nashville) tonight, I found a tear pad (a pad of coupons that you tear coupons off of), for $1.00 off 5 Easy Macs. If you are in your Kroger in the near future check this out. You CAN take these and NOT buy the Easy Mac at that store as these are Manufacturer's Coupons. SAVE them until there is a really good sale on this product.

Also, if you see "BLINKIES" in your store (the machines that blink and spit out coupons), take several for your coupon stock. You also do not have to use those in that store and they can be used in other stores as they are also manufacturer's coupons.

And last, but not least, coupons that say DO NOT DOUBLE/DO NOT TRIPLE will often double and triple anyway. If the bar code starts with a "5", the computer will automatically double it unless you have a cashier who is "on the ball" about checking the coupons and pulls it out. If the coupon bar code starts with a "9", the coupon will not automatically double or triple.

Kroger is notorious for allowing any coupon to double or triple and not checking them.

Happy Couponing!


  1. Okay -- so I am clueless about doubling/tripling coupon use. Are there certain days when Kroger doubles coupons? Certain stores that always double them? Tell me about all of that. Thx!!! :)

  2. FYI, Aldi does NOT take any coupons. :(
