Laurie’s Kroger Trip: Mega Sale Savings Beat Aldi, Costco & Sam’s Club Pricing


I knew I would love this list, but goodness now I love it even more! 


Yesterday I made a quick run into Kroger to pick up milk, but couldn’t help but noticing all the great items in the Mega Sale. I checked my Kroger app, and sure enough many of the items had Kroger ecoupons available, so I ended up re-stocking my pantry after last month’s Once a Month Grocery Shopping Experiment.


You know what? After doing the challenge I am so much more aware of what general grocery items I really need to stock up on, as well as what items we don’t use all that much. I basically stocked up on everything we’d need for the month again, and am thrilled to do it on a penny pinched budget! (I’ll still need to make a trip to Fresh Thyme this week to stock up on produce for the next two weeks, but that should be it.)


But, what I was most excited about was being able to easily really compare the Mega Sale prices agains the regular prices at Aldi, Costco & Sam’s Club using this price comparison sheet. Curious how those sales (even without coupons) stack up? Take a peek . . .

Jif Peanut Butter 28 oz $1.99 = 7¢ per ounce compared to 10-11¢ per ounce at Costco and Sam’s or 8¢ per ounce at Aldi for Aldi brand Peanut Delight (I’m going to head back and stock up for winter I think!) 🙂


Organic Baby Spring Mix 16 oz $3.99 = 24¢ per ounce compared to 28¢ per ounce at Costco and Sam’s Club. This has been there special price all summer and I thought it was a pretty good deal, but know I know it is!


Ghirardelli Brownies Mix Boxes 19 oz $1.49 = 7¢ per ounce compared to 8¢ per ounce at Costco or 10¢ per ounce at Sam’s for Betty Crocker


Turkey Hill Ice Cream 48 oz $1.99 (regularly $5.99 – this was a huge sale!) = 4¢ per ounce compared to 8¢ per ounce for Kirkland Ice Cream at Costco or 4¢ per ounce at Sam’s Club for Land O Lakes


Folks, these are prices just using the sale ad with no coupons and they definitely beat the Aldi, Costco & Sam’s Club prices. While I love those stores for some things, I still really feel like you can save even more each week by shopping your favorite grocery store’s sale ad.


I ended up spending $78.50 and saving $63 without a single coupon in hand other than my digital coupons (I love that!) I so wished I’d taken a few minutes to print all the great coupons that match up with the sale before shopping, but this worked for me with a crazy busy week ahead. Here are a few of the best coupon deals I noticed while I shopped:


Nature Valley Granola Bars $1.99

Nature Valley Granola $1.99

Kroger Frozen Vegetables $1

Suave Deodorant $.99

Suave Shampoo $.99

Philadelphia Cream Cheese 2 pack $4
