Thread Details

Welcome to the New Main Kmart Deals Thread!!


Shopping at KMart can be an adventure! Even if you're a seasoned couponer, KMart still can be quite a learning curve. Please take a moment to read the FAQ. Most repeated questions that are asked in the thread, can be found below
.

Thanks to Serra, we now have 4 Wikis for the KMart thread, which will hopefully make the information a lot easier to navigate.

This is Wiki #1, and it will give you a quick tutorial on shopping at KMart. Wiki #2 will contain the latest highlights & matchups for the current week ad. Wiki #3 will contain the latest highlight & matchups for the current monthly ad. Last but not least, Wiki #4 will contain our Cheapies, Clearance, and Catalina finds

SHOPPING AT KMART FAQ

SYWR Card = Shop Your Way Rewards Card. A KMart Savings Card that you must sign up for if you want to take advantage of deals here! Earn 10 points for every dollar you spend. You can redeem the points at a rate of 1,000 points = $1. Points can be redeemed at KMart, Sears, and Lands End. You must have an email address on your account to earn bonus offers - if you do not have an email address, you will typically only earn base points (no bonuses). It is definitely worthwhile to use a valid email address to receive special email promotions; some are quite generous. As a bonus-level member, you're eligible for additional Bonus Offers and other perks and rewards. Your SYWR card will be suspended if you do multiple back-to-back transactions (this number changes regularly but you're usually safe at around 5 transactions) on the same register and with the same cashier. If you plan on doing more than a few transactions, it's best to do a few with one cashier at one register and a few with a different cashier at a different register - even if you have to go to the service desk. This is a security feature designed to prevent cashiers from using a member's account to rack up points and then redeem them for their own benefit. If your card is suspended, you will still earn points for your purchases, but you cannot redeem them until the suspension has been lifted. To have the suspense lifted, contact SYWR Customer Service, call 1.800.991.8708, Monday - Sunday, 8 am - 11 pm, Central Standard Time.



SYWR VIP Levels = The SYWR Card offers several VIP levels based on your annual spend (calcuated before coupons!). Each level comes with different "benefits".

SYWR BONUS POINTS OFFERS =
You must have an email address on your account to earn bonus offers
KMart runs deals weekly strictly for SYWR members, and often times those offers include earning bonus points on certain purchases. These offers can be confusing, but if you follow the guidelines below, everything should work in your favor. If an offer states "Recieve a COUPON for $X (X points) when you spend $X on ____", KMart counts the amount towards this threshold BEFORE any coupons are used. However, if the offer simply states "Recieve XX bonus points ($X value) when you spend $X on ____" then KMart requires you to spend the necessary amount AFTER coupons are redeemed. Clear as mud, right? Just remember if you see the word COUPON, it means total BEFORE Qs.

CRT = Cash Register Tape Coupon. Prints after reciept. Usually a $/$ that you can roll into the next transaction. Generally speaking P&G CRT's are the only ones that do not roll. You can only redeem one CRT per transaction. Redeeming a CRT does not negate another CRT from printing.

CAT = Catalina (Red/White Coupon). Comes from the Catalina machine at the end of your purchase. Always make sure the Catalina machine is on, and note that the Customer Service Desks DO NOT have these machines. As long as a CAT says MFR COUPON at the top, you should be able to redeem along with a CRT. If the CAT says STORE COUPON, you can NOT combine with a CRT in the same transaction.

CSP= Check Shelf Price. When an item scans CSP, the item should be 50%-90% off. For more info read Kmart 101 by adawn80

SUPER COUPONS= KMart issues "Super Coupons" in both their weekly and monthly ads. In order to use the Super Coupons, you must use your SYWR Card.

Weekly Super Coupons: Limits are stated in each Q, and the Q will either be for a specific price, or take off a specific dollar amount for each item that attaches to the coupon. For example, if the coupon is for $1 off a widget, limit 5, when your card is scanned, your total will be reduced by $5 if you are buying 5 widgets.

Monthly Super Coupons: You must spend $25 in grocery, health or beauty care to use. Total is calculated before manufacture's coupons, but after Kmart Store coupons. The item you are using the coupon on does NOT count toward the $25 total. All monthly super coupons are a limit of 1 per transaction, however you can do multiple transactions and use additional coupons, as long as you meet the $25 threshold for each transaction.

The points coupons are wonky. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. Last week I know that they worked with the 5 award card, used three during the week that each credited 5000 points to my account. Sometimes they work with the b1g1 offers sometimes they don't. I had one that I tried using on Monday with head and shoulders, olay bar soap and gillette bodywash (none of which are b1g1 offer, just sale) and it was for 5000 points when you spend $30 or more on health and beauty and it said reward not met even though my $10 P&G printed. My therory is that if I think it may work to try it since the register will tell the cashier to hand it back if it doesn't count. One way to tell if it did work is that when it is scanned it adds $0.01 to the reward section on the screen (I think thats what its called, where the free item coupon deducts on the right of the screen). If it doesn't show up I warn the cashier not to stick it in the draw because it'll probrably tell them to hand it back (which if they hit total it will).

The 10,000 points one probably won't work with the BOGO50% sale.

I just tried to print the offer from my ereceipt and it tells me the offer code is missing. I sent them an email. I hope they get back with me. I really wanted to do the deal...
I was having this problem this week also. Don't click on the print button, but instead print the email. You may have to alternate printing it both landscape and portrait orientation to get the coupon to fit on a single page and not be cut between two, but this worked for me. Mine had the barcode in the email but not when I clicked the print buttom on the offer. I just cut them from the printed email and they scanned for the cashier (this was for the points offers), but I printed my P&G the same way for use next week.

There is a new coupon at coupons.com(use zip 90210 or others) for free Hidden Valley wyb Kingsford charcoal & lighter fluid - would work with the Glad/Vanity Fair offer, but a bit more oop. I don't see the fluid included in the offer online so you would need another item or 2 with the ranch(2.99) and charcoal(9.12) to make it over $15 to get the $5 off coupon. Not the best deal, but ok if it is something you need. Maybe best to wait to use it with the KC Masterpiece free coupon for the week of 5/20 or with smaller Kingsford bags.

I'm wondering if someone can help me. I'm trying to find a good P&G product at around $2 to get to $30 after buying 6 Pantne.

So I'm going to do this:
6 Pantene x $4.69 (price at my store) =$28.14

I was going to do a Fixodent but that is $3.50 and I was hoping to find an item just at $2. (and hopefully something I have a $1/1 coupon for LMAO ) The Pampers wipes is $2.99 and I could double a 75c/1 printable. Or I could get a Febreeze car freshner that's $2.99.

Just wondering if anyone found anything around $2 while they were out there?

My scenario...

I may tweak it to roll the P&G CRT for less oop if the Pantene is still BOGO50% next week...does anyone know if it will be?

6 Pantene $4.69 each
1 Febreze Car $2.99
2 Glad Trash Bags $7.99 each
Weekly Meal Deal Ground Beef w/ free pasta & sauce $2.99
Starbucks Doubleshot 15 oz drink $2
Mott's Apple Juice $2.50
= $54.60
- $3.19 Mott's KQ
- $7.05 Pantene BOGO50%
- $2 ($1/$5 Glad MQ doubled)
- $2 ($1/$5 Glad MQ doubled)
- $2 ($1/$5 Glad MQ doubled)
- $2 ($1 Febreze Car MQ doubled)
- $2 ($1 Starbucks MQ doubled)
- $4.69 Pantene BOGO MQ
- $4.69 Pantene BOGO MQ
- $4.69 Pantene BOGO MQ
= $20.29

Earn $10 P&G CRT, $5 Glad CRT, $5 GC w/ $50 purchase

The Glad MQ's come from a booklet I found at USA Drug called "Save on the Essentials" and include:

Save $1 when you purchase $5 in participating products: Clorox, Tilex, Pine-Sol, Glad, 409, Handi Wipes, Liquid Plumr, Exp. 6/30/12

Save $3 when you purchase $10 in participating products: Clorox, Tilex, Pine-Sol, Glad, 409, Handi Wipes, Liquid Plumr, Exp. 6/30/12

Save $5 when you purchase $15 in participating products: Clorox, Tilex, Pine-Sol, Glad, 409, Handi Wipes, Liquid Plumr, Exp. 6/30/12

There is a long list of participating products including "any Glad trash bags".

Puffs tissues are 1.67 on sale maybe other sizes and prices, trial/travel sized Olay BW and single bars of soap are .97 at T-I don't what they are at KM. Travel sized Crest or Tide might be helpful-don't forget Gain. These are just thoughts....

I went to coupon network and clicked on offers and did not see the spend $15 get $5 OYNO for the glad. Where are you all finding this promotion listed at?? TIA

I tried the Buy $15 get $5 promo and I did get the $5OYNO. However, It is a STORE coupon and prints from the catalina machine.

I bought:

6 Dixie napkins $12
1 Glad container $3

FYI, I didn't use any coupons. But I did notice a Kmart tearpad coupon for $1/2 select Glad containers. I believe someone posted about this earlier, so it might be a repeat.

I also got to $50 and received the $5 GC and it's effective 5/14-5/19. So my guess is the GC promo will end on 5/13? Isn't that how it worked in the past?

And I had a get 10,000 in points wyb $50 in merchandise.

I actually spent over $50 at Kmart today and only used the Mott's coupon. Bigeye

And yet another theory on why the Mott's autodeducts $3.19, LOL. I don't think all varieties of Mott's are on sale. They were out of the Mott's original so I ended up with Mott's for Tots and it was priced at $3.19.

I didn't look for anything at that price, but I did see some CG lip gloss on the mygofer site in the $2 range. Maybe a CG product and use the $1/1 any CG coupon and double it?

Make-up sponges are $2.XX wonder if the $1/1 any CG product would work on that?

Looks good, but I think you are using one too many Glad coupons. Even though it's on $5 worth of those products and you have over $15, the coupons are one per product and you only have two.

It's a Kmart promotion where you get a $5 CRT coupon. It is not a Coupon Network promotion.

Shoot, I thought it was a catalina coupon. I bought $15 in products and got a $5 OYNO store coupon and now I can't find it! Maybe it was from something else since I bought some other stuff too!

I was hoping to find something right at $2.00 and have a coupon I can double for it. BUT thanks for the suggestions. I did get some Gain fabric sheets on the last P&G promo but those were $4.99 ($2.99 after the double coupon) I was hoping to find something at $2. Big Grin
