Kroger Gift Cards= Gas Savings

Gift Cards at Kroger
From Amazon to Macy's to dozens of restaurants in between, any time you shop the stores' expansive selection of gift cards, you earn 2x fuel points. But this holiday season, The Kroger Co. Family of Stores is sweetening the deal so you earn 4x fuel points for every $1 you spend on qualifying gift cards.* So between mid-November and early December**, if you buy $100 in gift cards, you'll receive 400 fuel points (which adds up to 40¢ off per gallon)!
And if you treat the cards like cash, the fuel points add up even faster. Buy gift cards in advance of your Black Friday, Cyber Monday or big holiday shopping trips, and use them like cash at your favorite stores and online retailers to save even more on fuel. This year, you can easily turn your holiday shopping into BIG savings at the pump.
Don't know about the fuel points programs at The Kroger Co. Family of Stores? Take a few minutes to review how they work:


There are three ways to accrue fuel points at the stores every day:
  1. Collect 1 fuel point for every $1 you spend on groceries*
  2. Receive 2 fuel points (or sometimes 4!) for every $1 you spend on eligible gift cards*
  3. Earn fuel points for every qualifying prescription you fill at your store's pharmacy**


At Kroger Fuel Centers, you can apply your discount in 100-point (or 10-cent) increments. Use up to 1,000 fuel points on a single fill-up to get $1 off per gallon, or save some rewards for later. The points you can redeem at participating Shell Stations varies by location.


Your fuel point total is listed at the bottom of every receipt from your local Kroger-owned store. You can also track your points online at your store's website or through their mobile app — just register your loyalty card there!

I was provided with a discount coupon to use by Bzzagent in exchange for my promotion of this deal!

Kroger Skillet Meals

With all the crazy running around and shopping that surrounds the holiday season it is sometimes hard to get a hot and tasty meal on the table. Well Kroger has a line of skillet meals that go from freezer to table in 10 minutes and include delicious options like:

*Tuscan Style Penne
*Sausage Rigatoni
*Chicken or Beef Stir Fry
*Shrimp Lo Mein
*Chicken Fajitas

These were only $4.99 at Kroger and while it does say it provides 3 servings I would plan for it to only feed 2.

And to add to your quick and easy meal try the Kroger Garlic Bread (retail $1.99) which by the way also cooks in less than 10 minutes and is a huge loaf with more than enough for 4+.  You can also pick up a bag of Krogers Salad Kits (retail $2.99) in Cesar, Cesar Light or House with Bacon. Everything you need is right in the bag.

So for a family of 4 (2 skillets, 1 garlic bread & salad kit) you will have less than $15 spent and only 10 minutes to prepare! I know I can spend more than 10 minutes in the fast food drive grabbing burgers for my family and this is way healthier for them.

I was provided the products featured for free from Bzzagent in exchange for my honest opinions.

OxiClean(TM) 2in1 Stain Fighter Liquid

OxiClean(TM) 2in1 Stain Fighter Liquid

I was given OxiClean 2in1 Stain Fighter Liquid to try for free from Smiley360. Overall my impression was kind of........So So

Did it whiten my whites? Not that I can tell

Did it get out anymore stains? I didn't have any real stains to try it on (Thank you kids & patients for that!)

Overall I kind of feel like the $8.94 for a 64oz bottle at Walmart could be spent better elsewhere.

GREENIES® Dental Chews

GREENIES® Dental Chews

Magnum recently got to try out the Greenies Dental Chews. These are quite pricey (in my opinion, $10.99 at Petsmart) and really not much different than any other cheaper price dental chew. Unless I find a awesome deal that can lower the price to my standards my poor pitiful furbaby won't be getting anymore.

FYI- Does he really look like he lacks anything? He get PLENTY of treats and is spoiled rotten.

Friday Food Plan 12/6

A great way to save extra money in your budget is to Menu Plan. No we don't always exactly stick to the plan and those times we just move the meal to the next week. I always have cereal, oatmeal, muffins and such around for breakfast or we can have smoothies from fruit and yogurt we have in the freezer.  Lunches vary from sandwiches, frozen dinners, leftovers, etc :)

Friday: Beef Stew (perfect crockpot meal for a snowy cold night!)

Saturday: Chicken & Noodles, Green Beans

Sunday: Ham & Beans, Cornbread

Monday: Stuffed Peppers, Rice

Tuesday: Pizza, Veggies & Ranch

Wednesday: Sloppy Joe, Mac & Cheese

Thursday: BBQ Ribs, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Corn

52 Week Money Saving Challenge

So I saw a cool idea on Pinterest and I think I am going to try it starting tomorrow, (well actually I am going to add week 1 & 2 tomorrow so I will be finished by Black Friday 2014). You put money in a jar that corresponds with the week you are on like this....

And as you can see by week 52 you will have $1378! That would be on heck of a Christmas Shopping Fund or even a great way to get your emergency fund started.

FRANK's® RedHot®

Looking for a yummy new appetizer for your holiday parties or football games? Franks Red Hot has two really easy and delicious recipes that you can try!

FRANK's RedHot Sweet Chili® Cream Cheese Dip 
  • 1 cup FRANK's RedHot Sweet Chili® Sauce
  • 8 oz. pkg. Philadelphia® cream Cheese
  • 2 cups Mixed cut raw vegetables (crudites) to dip

PUT Philadelphia® cream cheese in shallow soup bowl.
POUR FRANK's RedHot Sweet Chili® Sauce over.
ARRANGE crudites around.
 How simple is that right? And such a flavorful change on the classic veggie dip or ranch dressing!

How about this one...
  • 8 oz. pkg. Philadelphia® cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup FRANK'S® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK'S® RedHot® Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Alternative: You may substitute 2 cups of shredded cooked chicken for 2 cans (12.5 oz. each) SWANSON® White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained

HEAT oven to 350°F. Place Philadelphia® cream cheese into deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.
MIX in salad dressing, FRANK's® RedHot® Sauce, and cheese. Stir in chicken.
BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables.

I think this would be great with some tortilla chips as a cool play on nachos/queso type appetizers!

Ibotta now offering rewards at movie theaters!

If you’re a fan of the FREE Ibotta app!), you’ll be happy to know that Ibotta now works at the movies! Woo Hoo! So if you’re planning to hit the theaters over this holiday weekend, check out the offers that you may be able to snag if you live near an AMC Box Office, Regal Box Office, United Artists Box Office and/or Edwards Box Office. Ibotta even works at their concession stands.

* Get $1 cash back Thor: The Dark World Offer valid on single movie admission ticket
* Get $1 cash back THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Offer valid on single movie admission ticket
* Get $2 cash back when you spend $12 on Movie Theater Concessions Valid on single trip
IMPORTANT: To verify the movie ticket redemption so you earn your cash from Ibotta, you will need to take a picture of the ticket stub which must be generated at the Box Office or theater kiosk. The ticket stub is the portion that the ticket taker hands back to you for entrance into the movie and includes the name of the movie, time and date of showing, price of ticket paid, and auditorium number. Printed receipts from ticket purchase, electronic tickets, or print at home tickets will not be accepted. To verify your movie concession purchase,  you will need to take a picture of the receipt handed to you from the concession stand after purchase of items.
