How to Place Coupons on a Kroger Card

Let's Go Krogering!


Kroger has made it a little more convenient for you to save by allowing you to place coupons on your Kroger card. Many have either never heard of it or forget to do so. Below is a step by step process of how easy it is to put some savings on your Kroger card. Unfortunately everything nowadays needs you to register in order to reap the benefits of what’s being provided so…

Step 1 - Registering For It

In the upper right screen of the Kroger.com website under the blue header is Create An Account. Click this link.

Step 2 – Selecting Login Information

Go through this small but tedious task of entering all your information in. This information entails your email address and giving an impenetrable and secure password.

Step 3 – Entering Your Zip Code/City

They ask for your zip code or city and state in order to supply you with the circular ads in your area.

Step 4 – Submitting Your Card’s Number

Next you will give your Kroger Card 12 or 13 digit account number that is underneath the bar code on the back of your Kroger card. It should either start with a 2 or 4. If you do not have this information on hand, don’t panic. You can give your 10 digit ID number which is nothing but the phone number you gave when you submitted your Kroger card application.

Step 5 – E-mail Communication

This step allows Kroger to send you newsletters, promotions and inform you of any digital coupons that are available, if you would like to receive such a thing. If you do not, leave all check boxes blank and simply click continue.

Step 6 – Confirming Your E-mail Address

This is where the site sends you an e-mail to confirm your registration. If the e-mail seems to take a while it may be normal. Give it time and it will show up. Click the link provided on the e-mail. Once you confirm your registration you are on your way of applying coupons to your account.

Step 7 – Log in into Your Newly Registered Account

Log in to your account and you are welcomed to the world of Kroger. You can find things from how to apply to their Reward Visa Card to different cooking recipes. But that’s not what we’re here for so lets move right along.

Step 8 – Putting Coupons on Your Kroger Card

There should be a pictured banner labeled ‘Save More with Coupons’ on the homepage. Click on that banner. However if things change simply go up to the blue header and click on the category of ‘In Store’ and go to ‘Coupons’ and select ‘Digital Coupons’.

Step 9 – Jackpot!

Here you will see before you plenty of coupons to choose from that can go on for pages and pages. Along the left side of the page is a ‘Narrow By:’ selection as to where you can narrow down your choices. All the choices given will have how much you will save, the brand of the product and an expiration date given below.

Step 10 – Start Selecting Items

There is a ‘Select Coupon’ check box at the bottom of each item. Check that box until you have selected everything that you want. At the bottom of all the items given are two buttons. One is marked ‘View My Coupons’ and the other is ‘Load My Coupons to Card’.

If you select items and click the ‘View My Coupons’ button soon after, nothing will appear unless you have loaded coupons onto your card first. So select the ‘Load My Coupons to Card’ button. Afterwards you will see all the things that you have loaded onto your card and a total of how much savings you can have.

Step 11 – Go Krogering and Save!

Now that you are all loaded up, hit the stores, swipe your card and see the savings instantly come off! Awesome!

So many times people grumble that they don't have time to cut up coupons yet they can spend hours on the internet perusing one site after the next. So when you're paying a bill, looking up a Victoria's Secret sale or buying a new Red Ranger Rifle take the time to stop by the Kroger website and slap some coupons on your card.

Nia, you are awesome! I had heard about placing coupons on a Kroger card but had no idea how to do it. Thanks so much for demystifying the process. This is one of the things I had wondered about but never got around to looking into.

Thanks for this great hub Nia - it came at a great time too, when people are needing to stock up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I will definitely be giving this idea a try!

Thanks Giselle! I was the same way, and all of a sudden while I was at work I thought I'd give it a try. I went through it yesterday and it was easy peasy. I'd say it took me about 10 min. to do. And that includes adding coupons to my card.

Those of us that do have a Kroger don't even do what is so easily given to us and here you don't even have a Kroger and so willing to do it. I'm gonna try to take advantage of it. Thanks for dropping in a comment GetSmart! Have a splendid day!

Woohoo! I just finished the process and now have some coupons on my card for things I would be buying anyway. I was pleasantly surprised by the $ off and the long expiration date of the coupons I selected. Thanks Nia!

I love that we're so happy about such a little thing. I'm going tomorrow and will buy one of the items I have a coupon on. Even if I don't need tbe item. Ha!

I have never heard of this. That is really cool. Do they double and triple them too like they do in the stores? You made it sound so easy and painless. Thanks.

That's because it is homesteadbound! Just read on their website that digital coupons do not double. And they are limited to one per item. Still worth taking advantage of if you forget to pack your paper coupons. Thanks for dropping in a comment! Have a good day!

Great hub. With these coupons on a card, you don't have to worry about handling paper, filing and throwing out the expired ones. I really enjoy using these coupons as an addition to the other coupons I use. Paying full price doesn't make sense when you can pay less for the same thing with coupons.

Great hub explaining coupons on your store card. I know some people are embarrassed about bringing coupons to the store or they don't want to deal with the hassle of coupon clipping, etc... This makes it so easy for everyone and it just takes a minute. You've done a great service to explain it to people in such an easy way.

Thanks Chasing Riley! And the minute I finished writing my hub I found in their FAQ's step by step instructions on how to do it. Ha! I did all that work for nothing it seemed. But I do see that some people find it useful that I put this hub together. So that helps. But if you can't get to my hub it's in their FAQ's. :-) Thanks for dropping in a comment. Have a bright day!

Nia, believe me, your hub is better than their FAQ's. Their site has so much stuff on it that it is actually quite hard to navigate. I was on their FAQ's today trying to figure out if, in the situation where a purchase qualifies for two different digital coupons, which one would the card use? I didn't find an answer to that one. But I was grateful for your hub explaining how to load coupons on step by step.

On the plus side, I added another coupon onto my Kroger card today, and the site has informed me that I have already saved $4.50 in the mere week or two that I have been using the digital coupons. Yup, the digital coupons are working!

In California, our Kroger is called Ralph's. With the Ralph's Club card, you can designate a school to get credit for your shopping. It does nothing to benefit the shopper but it really helps the schools and it takes one minute when setting up your card. If you don't have kids, ask someone you know with elementary school kids if their school participates.

Wow Chasing Riley, even though it doesn't benefit the shopper that's still a neat idea. Hopefully it'll help supply the kids with the things they need.
