[Expired] Kroger: Save $5 on $50 Visa/MC Gift Card (1/24-1/25)

Deal has expired, view more Kroger deals by clicking here.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Save digital coupon to get $5.00 off the purchase of a $50 Mastercard or Visa gift card.

The Fine Print

  • Download the coupon from January 22-25.
  • Redeem once from January 24-25.

Our Verdict

The $5 coupon essentially neutralizes the $4.95 activation fee. Sounds like it’ll only work on the $50 denom, so not the best deal, but might be useful to some. You should earn fuel points on the purchase as well. Use Discover or Dividend for 5%, or use a card that earns a bonus rate at supermarkets.

The coupon details say, “Use up to 5 times in a single transaction,” but I was only able to get a single $5 discount.

Did you ask the friendly CS guy/gal to override?

I did ask, but it was beyond her ability. I went ahead and got the one and won’t invest the time to try dealing with it any further.

My experience was the same (only 1 discount applied when attempting to purchase 5). I wan’t about to argue so I voided 4 of them and only kept 1. Hardly seems worth it.

SCORE! I just got off the phone with Kroger customer service and the rep was very helpful and friendly. I explained the issue and how I printed out the terms and brought them with me. She said on her end she could not find anywhere of it saying “5x in one transaction” but since I was only able to get one yesterday she credited my Kroger account with $20 that can’t be used on gift cards but can be used on pretty much anything else. So if you got screwed on this deal as I did, reach out to Kroger customer service and they just might make it right for you. $20 of free groceries. Sweet.

Evidently this deal was not coded for 5x even though in the terms it said it was 5x/

So if you get it, what do you do with it? Every thing I spend on has 3% to 5% category cards as is.

Worst case, if you use Discover/Dividends, you’ll make 5 cents out of it :))

That must be nice. I invariably have some non-bonused spending, which is where I try to use such cards. A couple examples are my gas bill (as in utility, not for automobile) and medical bills. Also, for me the fundamental driver is the Fuel Points, which I value at $0.035, or 7% at 2 x Fuel Points.

I only able to get one 50$ card with coupon, not worth to argue since it’s normally refer to normal sale item upto to 5, not on gift cards per my experience. So I voided 4 cards and bought one. I did try to do another transaction but no discount, so i voided that.

You’d have to use five separate Plus Card accounts and clip the coupon once to each, but yeah, it can be done.
