Saving Star Change at Kroger

Kroger has been a long-time loyalty-card store that participated with Saving Star, but sadly that is going to change.

Starting October 1, 2014, Kroger will now be a receipt-scanning store for Saving Star credits. The Saving Star website says:

This change impacts all Kroger stores, including: Kroger, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, JayC, King Soopers, City Market, PayLess, Owen’s, QFC, Ralphs, and Smith’s. This was a corporate decision made by Kroger.


The change means that you will need to activate the offer and then upload a picture of your receipt to receive the credits. You can do this through their user-friendly iPhone or Android apps. Their website says you will also be able to submit receipts via computer starting in October.

I have some instructions for uploading receipts via the apps on my Saving Star tutorial. When I have a chance to try the computer method, I’ll do a post about how it works and also update the tutorial.


Have you been using the receipt-scan method for other stores?

The Great American Milk Drive

Milk Drive


Did you know milk is rarely donated to food banks? Therefore it is in short supply when families come to receive assistance. Here is an inforgraphic that spells out the need and the actual supply.

Feeding America and the Great American Milk Drive help raise awareness and the availability of milk in food banks. The drive goes through the month of September, and the winning state will receive a bonus 5,000 gallon milk donation. The milk will be distributed evenly across the food banks in that state.

Don’t worry – the milk won’t go bad! The state will receive manufacturer’s coupons that they can redeem as they need the milk. That way, families always receive fresh gallons!


The winning state will be the one with the highest donations. You can help your state win by

~Donating online – your billing zip code determine that your state receives the credit

~Donating at participating stores


Even if your state doesn’t win the grand prize, the money you donate will go toward providing milk for your state’s food banks. All donations are tax deductible.


Have you seen the drive publicized at your local stores?
