Krogers gives you points based on how much you spend at the store. Some points roll over month to month, some you loose if you don't use them in gas. The only catch is Krogers hikes up their gas prices, so unless you're getting like a dollar off gas because you have a ridiculous amount of points your really not saving. For example, gas prices around here were averaging about 3.40 a gallon last week. Krogers had their gas priced at 3.56 and both those prices listed were for regular unleaded. So in order to actually be saving money by buying Krogers gas you had to have a discount of at least 16 cents off a gallon. If your discount was only 10 cents, which is common for someone who spends about 200 a month on groceries, you weren't actually saving any money. So sometimes those grocery programs are worth it, sometimes they're not. You just have to look into your local grocery store and actually pay attention to prices to compare.
