I took my daughters, ages 5 and 8, school shopping today for supplies and ended up buying their new school clothes too. The clearance clothing was 50% off the lowest price and while you can’t use the 15% off apparel coupon on clearance, you can use the 20% off from the shopping pass. We didn’t buy only clearance clothes but the original price of all the clothes we bought was $408 and I paid about $130 before tax to clothe both girls.

The crayola 8ct wasable classic markers are 2.99 on sale b1g1. So with the f&f discount that makes them 1.27 each

FM does not have an online shopping presence. So it is a on-line coupon to print at home and to use in the store.

No price adjustments on clearance. You would have to return them and then repurchase. ALL FM % off coupons will state ” not valid on prior purchases”


Emily August 12, 2011 at 8:55 am

so where do we go to actually print the coupon?


Melissa August 11, 2011 at 7:48 pm

ok, so i just bought 3 pairs of clearance shoes on sunday. do you think that they would let me do some sort of price adjustment on them? i wonder if i could “return” them and repurchase them with the 20% off.


Emily August 11, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Okay I know I sound stupid buuut…why does it say “online” shopping pass? Just because you get it online? It’s not actual ONLINE shopping, right?


Angela August 11, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Correct, it’s “online” because you print it from the internet.

There is a 7 day Apparel coupon that is good all week. (Sun-Sat. ) that is an extra 15% off Apparel, Accessories and shoes. Backpacks are from the ACS dept. Look for exclusions on the coupon from last Sunday’s paper. This coupon has NO EXCLUSION on backpacks. So that 9.99 backpack is really 6.79. There are very few left of these though. I am an Apparel Manager I know all the info you would ever need…

For the food dept. it is 10% off all private label brands that are not random weight sold. Look on the back and if it says “Intercontinental Brands” that is Kroger. And 10% off in nutrition. I am sure there are match ups for this dept. Look for 1.00 kettle chip blinkies and these are on sale for 2/5.00 making them 1.35 a bag.


Angela August 11, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Ooo…Thanks for the info, David! Please email me with any other super hot deals!


Jessica August 11, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Some people might not know what ACS dept is, so just to clarify, backpacks are actually part of Apparel so they would qualify for the 20% employee discount.

I used the Corozonas coupons again yesterday, but in combination w/ employee discount, and these become a money maker. Since I’ve been getting 10 at a time (free), the 10% off saved me an additional $1 on my shopping order (+$0.10 per bar).
And I don’t know if everyone has already noticed, but any packaged produce that is Kroger’s brands you save 10% also, packaged tomatoes, mushrooms, salads, etc.

The Clackamas FM no longer had Jamba Juice Smoothies on the shelf. I talked to the FF Mgr and he told me they did a “reset” because the product was discontinued. (even though the extra savings book coupon is valid until 8/16). But he check in back and still had some that he gave me. You may want to grab them before the employees have a Jamba Juice party….


Windee August 14, 2011 at 3:25 pm

they gave me a raincheck so we wil see if they still carry them.


Jen @ Master the Art of Saving August 11, 2011 at 5:51 pm

So does that mean we could also get 15% off our grocery shopping as well, or is it just for non-food items?
