Which Is Cheaper Publix or Kroger?

I am from the Philippines, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing.

Publix: Can't beat BOGO for the lower price

BOGO is a great way to get some extra savings on your purchases. In this case, you'll be able to buy two items at one time for only one price.

What exactly does BOGO mean? Well, it's short for "Buy One Get One," or in other words: if you buy one item at full price and another at half off (or any other discount), then both items are free! It doesn't matter how many times you buy them—you still get the same deal! So when I say Publix has "BOGO" deals all over their store, what I'm actually saying is that there are lots of things that come with more than just one penny off each item when bought together. This can make buying groceries much cheaper than if they weren't discounted together in some way due to having been purchased separately before making their way into our hands; however most often these sales have been limited by stores' policies which stipulate how much money people can save from purchasing multiple products together within certain time periods before having them expire so don't wait too long before checking out which ones might work best based on what type(s) of food items need replenishing most often throughout different seasons/months."

Kroger: Double coupon savings

Kroger offers double coupons.

Publix does not offer double coupons, but they do offer other savings opportunities that are worth considering. For example, Publix has an app you can download on your phone to help you find local deals and discounts while shopping at their stores. These apps often give access to exclusive promotions such as free products with certain purchases or discounted prices on select items when they are sold in quantities of 10 or more (or some other number).

Kroger coupons can be found online through the company’s website; however, if you want something in particular that isn't available through this method then it might be worth looking into whether there are any local discounts offered by your favorite grocer before heading out there first thing tomorrow morning!

Publix: More affordable grocery products overall

The key difference between Publix and Kroger is in their product selection. While both chains have a wide range of products, Publix has a number of more affordable options than its competitor. In fact, according to Consumer Reports' annual survey on the best grocery stores in America (which included both chains), "Publix consistently ranked high among shoppers who said they were willing to pay more for better-quality produce."

This higher quality can be attributed to the company's strict standards regarding its suppliers; they only source organic or locally sourced produce from companies that meet their stringent criteria—and even then only if it's proven safe for consumption by human beings who are not allergic or intolerant toward certain ingredients such as gluten (or wheat).

Kroger: Wide selection of house-brand products, especially for the reduced price

If you're looking for house brands, Kroger has a wide selection. It is by far the largest grocery store chain in America and also has the best-known brand names (like Heinz ketchup).

Kroger's selection of house brands is often better than Publix's, because it has more to offer at lower prices. For example, when checking out at Kroger there might be cheaper beef or ham available than at Publix—but if you shop online through Amazon or elsewhere it could be just as easy to get those items delivered straight to your doorstep without having to leave home!

Publix: Premade meals and deli items are less expensive at Publix than at Kroger

If you’re looking for pre-made meals and deli items, Publix is better at pricing than Kroger. For example, a rotisserie chicken from Publix costs $1.99 per pound; the same item from Kroger costs $2.79 per pound. Similarly, an 8-ounce package of ham salad in plastic wrap is $3.49 at Publix; it’s also available for $3.29 at Kroger stores—but only on sale every other week or so!

Kroger has better prices on house-brand products like toilet paper and paper towels than Publix does because they sell these items more frequently (or sometimes even exclusively).

Kroger's more frequent sales also help keep prices low

Kroger has a weekly ad with coupons, which helps keep prices low. You can also find great deals on sale items and clearance items, as well as deals on select products at each store location. The grocer also offers occasional double coupon days and other specials throughout the year that help you save money on groceries and other household needs.

All things considered, Kroger is the better bet as a "cheaper" grocery store

All things considered, Kroger is the better bet as a "cheaper" grocery store.

  • For the most part, Kroger has better sales. This is because they have more frequent sales than Publix and even some items at Publix are cheaper than their counterparts at Kroger.
  • They have a wider selection of house-brand products (for example: if you need ground beef but don't want to pay extra for branded name brands).
  • Their prices on certain items can be much lower than those at Publix (though not always).


I think the best way to summarize this is to say that it’s a close call. Both stores are great, and their prices will vary based on what you buy. In my opinion, though, Kroger is the better deal when it comes to saving money on groceries. It’s cheaper because they don’t have sales often enough; its selection of house brand products is much better than Publix's; and its grocery prices are lower overall than Publix's because they don't compete with other brands as much (like Walmart or Target).
