Mega Event Deals
Periodically throughout the year, Kroger runs what is known as a Mega Event—a perfectly fitting name in our opinion. The promotion typically lasts for about two weeks at a time and gives shoppers discounts when they purchase a certain number of select products. Sale items can be identified by a special blue tag.
The grocery chain is currently in the midst of one of its best Mega Events yet, offering $2 off each item when you buy three or more items included in the sale. Last time Kroger ran the special promotion, consumers received $1 off each when they purchased 5 or more items—meaning consumers will get more bang for their buck this time around.
Here are a few of the most enticing grocery deals included in the store's current Mega Event sale—running until October 18. You can also check out a full list of participating items on the Kroger website.
General Mills and Kellogg's Cereals
Time to stock up on your favorite cereals. Select General Mills and Kellogg's varieties both made the Mega Event list. With the $2 savings, customers can pick up a Kellogg's Large Size box for just $2.49, or a General Mills box for $1.99. Grocery blogger Kroger Krazy shared that with the additional use of a digital coupons—offering $1 off when you buy two General Mills cereals—shoppers can snag the boxes for even cheaper.
Look out for other closeout deals while you're perusing the cereal aisle. Instagram account @krogercoupoonqueen recently found boxes of General Mills Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, Reese's Puffs Bats, and Kellogg's Apple Jacks all at reduced prices.
