Kroger Coupon Policy

Kroger Print-at-Home Coupon Acceptance Policy

Effective November 2007, all Kroger divisions accept industry-standard, secure print-at-home coupons. We recently partnered with Coupons Inc., the industry leader in print-at-home coupons, to offer print-at-home coupons on and all of our store banner websites. You may also find coupons on brand websites and legitimate coupon websites like Help us make your shopping experience a pleasant one by keeping in mind these simple rules for using Print-At-Home coupons.

We can only accept print-at-home coupons if they scan properly at checkout. Legitimate printable coupons are delivered using special software designed to print a properly rendered barcode on the coupon and limit the number of coupons printed.

We will generally not accept “FREE product” (no purchase required) print-at-home coupons. It is currently an industry practice not to produce print-at-home manufacturer’s coupons for free product. Buy-one-get-one-free coupons and other values that have a purchase requirement are acceptable.

We will usually not accept coupons for more than about 75% of a product’s value. For example, a $2 off coupon will be acceptable for a product that normally sells for $5 or more, but a $2 off printable coupon for a product that sells for $2.25 is unlikely to be legitimate. If there are exceptions, we are usually provided advance notice by the manufacturer.

Coupons will be rejected if they appear distorted or blurry, altered in any way, or are obvious duplicates. You should always print the coupon yourself directly from the website or email that is offering it. Only then can you ensure you are printing a legitimate coupon. The coupon will never appear on your computer screen. A legitimate coupon is never sent as a graphic or PDF or sent in a Word document.

Print-at-home coupons should never be copied, sold, or traded. They should not be photocopied or scanned and distributed to others. They have unique serial numbers printed on them and follow an industry-standard format. Coupons are never sold and you should not pay for someone’s “time to clip” or other service fee.

Digital Coupon Policy

Customers who choose to participate in the digital coupon program are required to have a digital account with a valid, active Shopper’s Card. Kroger Associates or partners are prohibited from setting up or otherwise maintaining a digital account not specifically linked to that Associate or the Associate’s household.

A valid Shopper’s Card or an Alternate ID is required to access a digital account in order to use digital coupons at the time of purchase.

Digital coupons and offers are deducted from a Customer’s total purchase prior to paper coupons or any other discounts, and cannot be added back or removed once the Card has been scanned.

Limit 1 use per digital coupon, per transaction.
Digital offers cannot be combined with paper manufacturer’s coupons on the purchase of a single item.
Digital offers do not double.
A limit of 150 coupons can be loaded per household at any time.
Digital reproductions of offers will not be accepted (such as using a mobile application to reproduce an image of an offer/coupon).
The store manager has the right to accept, decline or limit the use of ANY digital coupon or offer.

    I know on internet coupons krogers won’t take if it’s more than 75% of the value. Now if you use a store coupon and add to it an internet manufacture coupon does the 75% come into play after the store coupon is used or is the 75% based off the retail price before any coupons are used. Hope this makes sence.

    I think that if you rcv a coupon thru the mail for a free product, that Kroger should honor the free coupon. After all, the product company will reimburse Kroger for the cost of the product. As I was denied use of a Kraft free product coupon at Kroger, I will take my business to WalMart. Sorry Kroger, you might save me some money, but in the long run if I have to make two trips to two different stores, it is not worth the hassle.

    I live in wyoming and was told at King Soopers that “KROGER” limits 3 coupons for the same type of items. For example…if I buy 5 tonys pizzas, I can only use 3 coupons for these pizzas….I don’t see this in their policy?????

    @Carol – they are referring only to internet coupons in the policy above about not taking “FREE” coupons w/ no purchase. If it’s from the mail, they’ll take it!

    You can also go online to, and and register your Kroger Plus card and load ecoupons and also print coupons. You can combine ecoupons w/ manufacturer coupons. I loaded a $3 off coupon for my husband’s razor blades and bought another $4 off coupon for $.25 @ and saved $7 on one set of razor blades!

      It is something new Kroger is testing. I’m in the home district (Cinci/Northern KY). The manager here said due to abuse they are expecting this policy to be nation wide next year 🙁

    Our local Kroger has stopped accepting manufacturer coupons if you have an e-coupon on your card. I thought if Corporate’s policy was one paper and one e-coupon you could use both.

  6. Jenny says

    I tried this past Sunday in Ohio, and found I could not use paper coupons if I already had a coupon for the same product on my Kroger Plus Card. I assume the coupons on the Kroger plus card are Manufactured coupons, only from my expirence, and I too am new to couponing. Good Luck.

  7. Maggie says

    This article should be changed to reflect current Kroger policy. When I typed “Kroger Coupon Policy” this came up, but there is not link to an official coupon policy, and most stores no longer take manuf. + cellfire coupons.

  8. Zenchild says

    Just found out that you have to inform the cashier at checkout if you want your coupons to double. They will double the coupon if it is .50 or less.
