Free Coupon Classes (8/1 and 8/2)-How to Shop the Mega Sale at Kroger *Updated





Kroger will be having a mega sale starting this Wednesday! Mega sales last for 2 weeks. When Kroger used to double coupons, I used to get stuff for very cheap and even FREE (I always share with my coupon classes my $96 mega sale haul that I only paid $0.66 after coupons). Many of my readers get confused by the sale so I am offering a FREE class about how how to shop the mega sale!

Bring coupons, download the Kroger app to your phone so that you can load e-coupons, bring reusable bags to keep track of your mega sale items, bring paper to make your list and bring questions! I will have a handout and if you want to shop after the class, I will help you!

I will have the Kroger Mega Sale Match-ups listed on Wednesday so that way you can see what coupons to clip and bring with you. 

When: Thursday, July 31st at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Kroger (9000 Staples Mill Road in Richmond, VA)
Café area FULL!




When: Friday, August 1st at 10:00 a.m
Where: Kroger (11895 West Broad Street-Short Pump)
Café area

When: Saturday, August 2nd at 2:00 pm
Where: Glen Allen Library (10501 Staples Mill Road in Glen Allen, VA)
Spaces Available: 11

*Possible class Saturday at 6pm at the Marketplace Kroger on Midlothian-I need 5 to register to make it official.

I am limiting this to 5 people per class and will add more classes if needed-YOU MUST REGISTER via email with me (YoungandFrugalinva@gmail.com) and must receive a confirmation email. If you are a no-show to the class then you will not be allowed to attend another class. This class will only be about shopping the mega sale-if you want to learn how to coupon, check out my flyer here and book a class!

*I know this is for West End locations. If you want me to come to your area-comment below what Kroger you shop and I get enough responses, I will add more classes next week in your area. 

Hope to see you there!
