Why It Pays To Shop At Kroger On Wednesdays And Fridays
By Jennifer Waldera
Kroger has built a reputation for being a pioneer in the grocery industry, especially when it comes to pricing. While you can find deals every day at Kroger, there are a couple of days that it especially pays to shop there.
Each Wednesday at midnight (Eastern Time), Kroger drops its new sales for the week in its weekly ad, so Wednesday is the best day to shop. Signing up to be a digital member means you get early access to the ad, but if you're in Illinois, Eastern Missouri, or certain parts of Indiana, you'll have to wait until midnight on Thursday for those deals to drop (per Kroger).
Also available only for digital members, the Free Friday Download Deal is offered on some Fridays throughout the month, when members can download a coupon for a free item that's good for up to two weeks. If you want to visit the store on Fridays, keep an eye out for weekend deals, as there is a page you can check for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday sales, too.
