Kroger affiliates Game Day Greats sale


I know I usually base my Kroger affiliate posts around the Denver Kroger affiliate, King Soopers, but since Joshua and I are in Omaha this week, and I had such a great time teaching the Omaha couponing class yesterday, this week's Kroger affiliate post will be done using the Baker's circular. (Baker's is the Omaha Kroger affiliate). Yay Omaha!  If you live near any Kroger affiliate store, you should be able to score very similar savings.

Most Kroger affiliate stores are having a Game Day Greats sale, where you buy from a select group of items in increments of ten, and you save $5 ( or $0.50 per item).  Here's my  Baker's shopping list for the Game Day Greats sale.
  • Birds Eye SteamFresh, $1.99, after sale $1.49, buy 3, use $1/3 coupon here. Total cost $3.47 for 3 bags or $1.16 each.
  • Trop50 $2.99, after sale $2.49, buy 2, use two of the $1/1 Facebook coupons here, plus get the $1/2 SavingStar coupon here.  Total cost $1.98 or $0.99 for each 59 oz. bottle.
  • Hunts tomatoes or paste $0.99, after sale $0.49,  buy 3 and use this $0.60/3 coupon here.  Total cost, $0.87, or $0.29 per can.
  • Bumble Bee tuna $1.28, after sale $0.78 for a 2.5 oz. pouch or 3.5 oz. can.  This is a GREAT buy even without coupons.  I'm getting two to round out the ten items.  Total cost:  $1.56
So this shopping trip will cost $7.88 ($8.88 out-of-pocket plus the $1 "banked" SavingStar coupon), and I'll be getting: 
  • 3 bags of Birds Eye Steamfresh
  • 2 59 oz. bottles of Trop50
  • 3 cans of Hunts diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans or pouches of Bumble Bee tuna
PLUS, don't forget to register your Baker's loyalty card and download the Game Day Greats Deal of the Day coupon through 2/4/12.

Half-price annual subscription to Delight Gluten Free magazine

Jdeal has got a new offer out:  get an annual subscription to Delight Gluten-Free magazine for $9 (usually $18).  Get it here. Here's what Jdeal has to say about Delight:
Filled with enlightening in-depth articles, glossy photographs and gourmet recipes that are tasty as well as adhering to dietary restrictions, Delight Gluten-Free Magazine is on par with other popular mainstream food magazines on newsstands today.
Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce, Zucchini Walnut Bread with Honey Butter, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake are just a couple of their recipes that are not diet-y at all, and would satisfy even the fussiest diner.
Other articles are varied and thoughtful, covering practical topics such as how to create food for a school age child to choices that can be made at a high-end restaurant. They are also sensitive to the Kosher community, and have written articles specifically targeted to them such as "The Kosher Conundrum: When Another Diet Clashes with Gluten-Free" by Andrea Neusner.
