Kroger adds to my challenge

November 23rd, 2009 at 03:50 pm

I received my rewards checks from Kroger today so I headed over to Kroger and purchased Christmas gifts! I got a couple games for my kids and some foods you can only get in Ohio for my dad who moved to Florida recently. I came in under the amount I had in rewards, so I received $3.00 and change to add to my challenge jar.

I stole from my jar last weekend because I had some needs to purchase at Sam's club and they only accept cash or my debit card. I didn't want to go any lower in my checking account, so I used jar money. I'm a little peeved at myself for doing so because I've been in the challenge for a whopping week and my own personal conviction was that I would not dip into that money under any circumstances. But, like any good idea, you just get back on the wagon and move on. I'll have to count my jar money to see where I really am.

    Don't beat yourself up. Borrowing from the jar is better than going overdrawn on your checking account or using a credit card. There is a bright side. Big Grin

    What are rewards checks from Kroger? We have Dillons here, but I haven't heard of any rewards program. What am I missing?

    We have a Kroger credit card and you earn points for the dollars spent. If you buy kroger brand you earn 3 pts per dollar and for everything else, every dollar spent is one point. We ended up with $90 in Kroger checks this time, which is a three month period. That's probably because we put a washer and drier on the card last month. I'm considering putting all my bills on the card now that all the cards are paid off. I was hesitant to do that before.
