    Note 1: Lots of Pictures of Hangtags, Ad, and other promotional material at the end of this post.

    Note 2: We just confirmed that this deal works also at Frys Foods in Arizona.

    *HOT* This deal might only be in California, Nevada and Arizona state. It’s possible they are in other states as well at Kroger Affiliate Stores, but I haven’t confirmed. Here’s what I know so far, from personal experience. So far, I know for sure that some variation of this promotion is running at the following Kroger affiliate stores: Ralph’s, Smiths, Frys Food, Foodsco, Food 4 Less.

    I’ve only tested this myself at Ralphs, which is a Kroger affiliate grocery chain in California.


    Between 11/16/2013 and 1/7/2014, when you buy 6 of participating spirits items in one transaction, you will get $40 instant rebate towards other non-alcohol items in your transaction. This means that you can get $40 worth of groceries, or other non-alcohol items for Free when you buy 6 bottles of participating wine or liquor. I’ll include the exclude list later in this article. Keep reading.

    Additionally, if you are lucky enough to find the $45 mail in rebate for the purchase 6 of participating liquor, you can get additional savings.

    Here are the steps on what to do:

    • Pick up 6 bottles of participating wines or liquor. Example: BV Coastal Wines, Smirnoff Vadka, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum.
    • Walk through the store, use a calculator on your phone to add up cost. Add at least $40.01 worth of non-alcohol items into your cart. Items part of the exclude list: Alcohol, tobacco, stamps, milk, gift cards, pharmacy purchases. So get anything else outside the exclusion list: groceries, drinking cups, kitchen ware, bakery, laundry detergent, baby stuff, plants, even Christmas decorations. Add up to $40.01 or more.
    • Check out with the 6 bottles and the non-alcohol items in one transaction. Enter your rewards card number. Once everything rings up, $40 will automatically get deducted at check out. You’ll see. Must enter Reward Card (free to sign up if you don’t have).
    • You can also use any coupons you may have on either the bottles and/or on the grocery items to lower your OOP (out of pocket cost). There’s a $4/2 coupon for Smirnoff and Captain Morgan from RP 10/27 or 11/10 (expires 12/7).


    • Limit one offer per transaction. At Ralph’s, the promo says limit one offer per visit. Valid 11/16/2013-1/7/2014
    • The limit at Smiths appears to be Limit 2 per Card, as stated on the promotional material. I don’t know the end date for Smiths.


    Participating Bottles (All the 750ml): BV Coastal Wines ($5.59), Sterling Wines, Captain Morgan ($12.94), Smirnoff Vodka ($9.79), Crown Royal, Ketel One Vodka, Tanqueray Gin, Baileys Irish Cream, Ciroc Vodka, Johnny Walker Red. Prices may vary by store. I’ve listed the price at my Ralph’s store, which tend to be slightly higher than other stores. At my store, the price listed are the after 30% discount price.

    Example Transactions:

    There are many different ways you can do this deal. I’ve seen people buy $40 worth of Tampons. I’ve also seen people buy groceries for Thanksgiving Dinner ($0.59/lb Turkey this week). I plan to go back to get more kitchen wear, such as ceramic cooking pans, and Keurig coffee maker on clearance.

    Additional Helpful Notes:

    • You can find the $2 off Smirnoff or Captain Morgan Coupon in this week’s Rite Aid flyer (Week 11/17-11/23). It’s a manufacturer coupon, not a Rite Aid coupon, so you can use it anywhere. The coupon expires on 11/23.
    • You can also from a similar coupon for Smiroff or Captain Morgan from RP 10/27 or RP 11/10 for $4/2. The specific coupon is very regional and can only be used within your state. It won’t work out of state.
    • You can find $2 off Liquor Hang Tag coupons at various grocery stores. We found some at Safeway/Vons. These expire 12/31/13.
    • The $45 Mail in Rebate Hang Tags can be found at various stores in California only. These are the stores we’ve confirmed where people saw these hang tags: Ralph’s, Albertsons, CVS.
    • You can significantly lower your OOP (out of pocket cost) if you buy grocery items that you have coupons for. I didn’t do this because my family was with me, and doing so would be too stressful. Instead, we just picked out $40 worth of stuff we needed anyway.
    • At Smiths, they are doing the same deal. I’m not sure of the end date.
    • At FoodsCo and Food4Less, the deal is slightly different. It’s buy 2 bottles per transaction, and get $15 instantly towards non-alcohol items in your cart. Same participating spirits. You can submit the same hang tag rebate for $8 back.
    • The $45 Rebate says: Save $8 off two bottles. Save $20 off 4 bottles. Save $45 off 6 bottles. The rebate ends 1/5/2014. Only valid for purchases made in and by residents of California.
    • The current week’s ad doesn’t have any info on this deal. The following picture was from last week’s ad. In the ad, it states that the deal lasts until 1/7/14. We ran into a lady yesterday at Michaels who works on the promotion for Ralph’s and she said it will last until January. YAY!
    • This deal also works at Frys Foods in Arizona – Another Kroger Affiliate Store
    • Ralph’s Promo: If you spend $100 before coupons, you get a Free Turkey!
