    said to be a Cat $1 wyb 4 so best to buy 4 at a time, 5X is reusable <-- Cat worked
    Also QFC has a new 10c Kroger Cash Back up to 5X.
    Would make them 30c each or 20c each with the Kroger Cash Back.

    Some additional Weekly Digital Deals:
    WEEKLY DIGITAL DEALS

    When you buy ONE (1) Mach3 or Venus Disposable Razor (3 ct). Download and redeem the coupon once from October 28-November 3 only. Use up to 3 times in a single transaction, while supplies last.

    I had an 'Exclusive for you' e-Q in the app today that was a 3X x 11/3/20.

    Tags for Market & Mill bread 5X e-Q but no such e-Q. Seems like that happened last time too. There is an e-Q x 11/3/20 but it is not marked as a 5X. Same with the Kroger apple juice and oatmeal ones.

    Another weird question you probably can't answer ... :p

    Have you noticed the past couple weeks, that the expiration dates on Fred Meyer digital coupons are messed up?

    I first noticed that the Five Times promotion coupons expired on Monday, November 2 instead of Tuesday, November 3 -- the official end of the sale cycle.

    Then last week, the "Weekly Deals" which officially were supposed to end on Tuesday, October 27 actually had an expiration date of Monday, October 26 on them. o_O

    Then when you logged in yesterday, the coupons -- including the weekly deals -- that said they expired October 26, were still on the Website even though it was then October 27 -- they read "expiring soon," but still had the October 26 expiration date on them. Out of curiosity I counted and there were close to 100 coupons with the same problem on the site yesterday. :eek:

    Today, the new "Weekly Deals" coupons say in the text of the coupon that they expire Tuesday, November 3 -- "Download and redeem the coupon once from October 28-November 3 only," but the expiration date at the bottom of the coupon STILL reads "Exp. Nov. 02."

    Has anyone tried using the "Weekly Deals" coupons on Tuesday instead of prior to Monday and do they still work a day later? :confused:

    Kroger/Fred Meyer is REALLY having problems with its website in recent days and I hope they get them fixed soon, but what if we decide we want to use one of the five times coupons on Tuesday instead of Monday? :oops:

    I noticed this problem the other day, as well. I've got the ONE time coupon on Market & Mill Bread, but the shelf tag showed it as a FIVE times coupon at our store, as well. I ended up NOT buying the bread like I planned, because I thought I'd made a mistake when I made my list, however, when I got home I couldn't find anything that said it was a FIVE times coupon in the wording. :confused:

    Glad I'm not the only one who noticed the discrepancy. I was beginning to wonder if I was the one going crazy! :p

    I hope they get these web problems straightened out SOON! :rolleyes:

    I hadn't noticed the issues with exp dates, but I have been frustrated the app digital coupon search frequently doesn't work. There's also an obvious oops in the print and online ads this week on the back page where the Instant Pot chili thing is. GRO Mainline 1... Issues with proofreading.

    New Catalina on Talenti starting Monday, $2 OYNO wyb 2, don't know if will be at FM, $3 with 5X e-Q.

    Some 60c/1 Cat Qs are printing for Kroger ice cream Dragon's Dream flavor x December.
    Search gives 'toasted marshmallow ice cream with hot chocolate-flavored swirls and candy bits'.

    I wonder if they've started to regionalize our ads/promotions? You mentioned that you didn't get the "Pumpkin Token" promotion like we did, but I got an e-mail reminding me of how "wonderful" the promotion is yesterday -- despite the fact it doesn't appear to be working. :confused:

    The Instant Pot chili is on page four of 10 in our online ad -- haven't picked up a paper ad yet -- but I couldn't see a problem with the Instant Pot Chili section of our online ad so I asked DH (who is an journalist/editor by profession) and he can't see anything either. It seems like you've got something in your ad that we haven't.

    I opened another browser to see if Washington had a different ad, but of course, the computer thought we lived in Boise and tried to force us to pick up groceries there -- as usual. :rolleyes:

    When I reset that browser for Vancouver, it looked like the same ad I'd just seen, so I don't know if the site was showing me a Vancouver ad or a Boise one -- even though I told it Vancouver. :confused:

    Meanwhile, the Talenti on the 5x deal is a REAL pain this go round. I loaded the 5x coupon BEFORE I remembered I had higher value printable coupons. Normally, if you use a higher value paper coupon, the computer just accepts the higher value coupon and leaves the lower value one loaded to your card for future use so I didn't think there would be a problem.

    However, the register refused to accept our higher value coupons the other day. When a manager was called, I explained what I thought was happening and she agreed that I was correct and the higher value coupon normally works. She did an over-ride, but I don't want to go through that hassle again.

    When I got home I tried to remove the 5x coupon from our card, since I had additional higher value printables, however, the coupon says it CANNOT be removed until the promotion is over, so now I can't use my higher value coupons -- and I assume that goes for Magnum as well, so we won't be buying that.

    I sure wish they'd get whatever bugs they are encountering worked out before they drive me crazy! o_O

    Looks fixed now in the online ad, but still there in the print ad... Technically page 4 I see, but our paper ad has a single page in between page 2 and 3.

    I was able to unclip the Magnum 5X pints (not used) and reclip it.
    ETA - but can't unclip it now...

    The Talenti coupon says I cannot unclip (I have used it once and I can reuse it).
    So maybe we cannot unclip a partially used 5X e-Q, because it would loose the tracking.
    I used the $1/2 5X Talenti one unintentionally as I also had an IP, and only got 1 thinking it wouldn't trigger it, but apparently it did.

    That's a good point on the Talenti/Magnum coupons. The other day it seemed like all the 5x coupons couldn't be unclipped. Don't know if they changed it or if the ones I saw that couldn't be unclipped were coupons that I had used and I just assumed that applied to all of them.

    Overall, I'm usually not that impressed with the 5x coupons since COVID hit. I generally don't clip more than a small handful any longer.

    Kraft mac & cheese Cat worked ($1 wyb 4).
    Search wasn't working again but I found the 5X e-Q in Clipped, marked 'can use again'.
    And Ibotta has a 50c Bonus when you redeem 5 times (= wyb 5 I think)

    Got a Magnum tub Cat print:
    $1 wyb 1 or $2 wyb 2 goes 11/2/20 - 11/23/20
    But there apparently is another one going currently (same deal) through 11/1/20.

    Thomas Swirl breads are bogo at $3.49, I got 2 and had 2 x $1.25 e-Qs come off.

    So Delicious Pairings cups are on sale for $1.50 for a while - 80c/1 Blinkie x 11/1/20 (NLA), Ibotta 50c/5.

    Barilla pasta sauce $1.79 with 5X e-Q
    $1/1 e-Q also came off
    This is tagged $2.29 and $1.29 after $1/1 5X e-Q but 5X is 50c/1.

    Valpak this time had a 75c/1 Fleischmann's yeast Q x 12/09/20, currently $1.49 I think.

    Picked up a paper version of the ad at the store today and saw what you meant about problems. :p

    Well, surprise, surprise!

    It is 9 p.m. Mountain Time. If I recall correctly, Kroger digital coupons tend to run on Eastern Time, not Pacific where Fred Meyer is located. I had given up on hearing anything about "Pumpkin Tokens" again this week, since they can only be redeemed one day -- Friday. You can get up to three a week, but last week's tokens vanished with no word on what happened.

    Checked my e-mail and FM had just written with my "Pumpkin Token" e-mail for the day. Apparently, you have to have it to redeem the coupons or enter the sweepstakes -- neither of which were explained last week when the phone told me the promotion wasn't working and I kept looking for an e-mail and never got one.

    Anyway, I was able to cash in my tokens for a coupon good for a $2/$10 meat purchase and a $1/one bagged snack coupon.

    I could have spent a few more dollars yesterday and gotten my third token for the week, but I gave up on the promotion figuring the tokens were worthless anyway.

    I guess getting an e-mail ONE HOUR before the tokens most likely expire is better than not getting one at all, but ... :eek:

    So ... after you mentioned you were able to remove the Magnum/Talenti coupons the other night, I checked. The regular Talenti couldn't be removed as I mentioned earlier, however, I was able to remove the Magnum and Talenti Layers coupons, so I thought I was in the clear. I even got a message that said they were removed, if I recall correctly.

    Today I noticed that the Magnum coupon was back on our card again! It now has a notation that says it can't be removed even though I haven't purchased any Magnum during the promotion. It didn't say that the other night when it claimed I had removed it. o_O

    The Talenti Layers is back with the "new coupons" where I could clip it again if I wanted to. In the past when I "unclipped" a coupon it vanished entirely, so that is confusing, as well. However, I suspect were we to buy Talenti Layers instead of Sorbet, the coupon that caused all the problems the other day would simply kick in again and block the higher value printables. I like the employees at our store so I really TRY to avoid problems. :p

    I guess that leaves us back at square one unable to buy the ice cream, especially since another weird glitch arose with the computer yesterday. For the first time ever NONE of our digital coupons credited! That included a 5x coupon, a couple "Savings for You" coupons and a regular coupon so it didn't seem to be a single category.

    The manager had to be called again even though I thought we had a pretty simple order. :confused:
