1. Kroger pickup allows you to use both digital and paper coupons.
Kroger grocery pickup (formally known as Kroger ClickList) allows you link your Kroger loyalty card during online checkout. Any Kroger digital coupons you’ve added to your card will automatically apply to your order. You can also present any paper coupons when a Kroger team member brings groceries to your car. Usually, you can apply both paper and digital coupons to a single item as long as they both aren’t manufacturer coupons.
Fred Meyer, part of the Kroger grocery chain, will also accept digital coupons during online checkout and paper coupons when you arrive to pick up your groceries.
