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.

I bought the 6+2ct strips and the detoxifying cleanser. The $2 came off but the strips did not come up as bogo. I think it might be because it's a special item, ya know?

I was excited when the little prompt came up on my first order and the cashier said "You have earned a $5 reward card"----I didn't see it anywhere in the ad or advertised in the store. Great Bonus!

With my P&G $30 of stuff I also purchased $30 of stuff for the KC/Unilever----rec'd the $10 P&G crt, but not the KC/Unilever $10---

For the KC/Unilever I bought:

5Softsoap bodywash @ $3 = $15
4 Kotex U tampons @ 4.19 = $16.76

Has anyone had luck today buying these items and receiving the $10?

Any thoughts/input appreciated!
No luck today with 4ea Softsoap, Irish Spring BW and 2 of the $3 Speedstick.
Used the $10 from P&G. So stopped me from any more shopping until I refigure.
CSR said it was because of cpns Mad
I wasn't in the mood to argue..

I sure wish we could figure out what is messing up the KC/Unilever transactions---
Would love to see the details of some transactions where the $10 KC actually printed.

I think KM could actually drive me crazy---today I had one manager tell me that in order for the free juice to come off, my total had to be $25 AFTER coupons...and my other KM's manager told me that my $1 coupons were 'illegally' doubling since the sign says 'up to $1' which means only to .99. My $2 Puperoni Cats were not coming off even tho I had something for them to attach to--I understand why they are closing stores all over. I wish they would close my two and stop the madness.

Found a TP today for $1/1 package of Scott Naturals flushable wipes or Cottonelle Fresh Care flushable wipes. It expires 12/31/12 and says 'Do Not Double' at the top--has the new GS1 barcode on it. Since this says DND does that mean no KM doubling?? I ask, not because I want to do anything wrong, but I thought KM pays for their double and DND means the MQ double. I'm pretty new to the KM doubling since it's my only store that does any doubling and I'm a complete newbie at it TIA for any insight

It's really hard to tell if the new barcodes will double, but other DND coupons have doubled at Kmart for me and others. It's rare for any store to not double a DND coupon, unless it's coded not to double. You aren't doing anything wrong if it does. The manufacturer will still reimburse them for the initial $1 and Kmart would just take the loss on the other $1, as they do with any doubled coupon, it it does double.

I thought maybe using the P&G was it, but just looked at another site and there is a post about using it and getting the KC-.
The store only had 5 bottles of the sale Irish Spring- and of course I bought 4, so can't try again there with that. Not even sure what cpns I have left now for BW.

I have another KM learner question....Can I use a MQ with one of those KM Qs?? And if so, I'm assuming the amount of the KQ is subtracted from the total I'm trying to reach? TIA for everyone's help-navigating these waters are tough.

Those tp qs for the scott/charmin wipes DO double and do it automatically.

Which cpn are you wanting to use?

Your previous post- the mgr was wrong. $25 before cpns for the free juice.
I should've asked tonight for a substitute tonight since they were out of apple.
Oddly the 2 stores have no monthly ads left.
When I went yesterday the one still had the 5 bottles that they had on Sunday and of course I couldn't find my cpn.
Guess I need to print a couple to use tomorrow.

I was wondering about the Hersheys Simple Pleasures KQ along with the MQ. I'm hoping they go on sale a bit so I can use them to make it to the $25 amount. I'm not a big time buyer, just trying to buy food for the animal shelter with as little OOP as possible. I know the candy will be free at Target, but if it'll get me to $25 faster at KM I'll burn some Qs.

I know the manager was wrong about the amount-I showed her the receipts from the 3 previous transactions I had just done...my cashier couldn't get the juice coupon to come off and he made the mistake of asking her how to do it. My $2 Pupperoni Cat is being the big pill too, refusing to be scanned, and I do have something for it to attach to, too.

Thanks for taking the time to help. wave

My KMs were out of the monthly ad too on the stand. When I asked at one of the stores she got one out of a box-at the others store they didn't have any.

The one store-shake head if it's not there they are out..

I'm not familiar with that cpn. (sorry) But I would think the combo would be fine (Kmart=ymmv). I saw a display of them (hersheys) tonight and they were tagged 2.99.
I'm sure someone that has that coupon will chime in with a definite answer soon!

I don't recall my cashier having any problem with the Pupperoni Cat tonight, but she started picking anything to match my cpns Frown but everything worked in the end.
Except that I noticed after I got home the Rose art crayons scanned at .75, not .50. (last stop of 6hrs of shopping-was a bit tired) Guess I'll be back there today with a new purpose and give the KC one more try..

Sometimes if the cpn doesn't scan with the gun they can wave it over the set scanner and it reads it. At least, my stores are no longer having issues with having to type in the amount of the cpn when it won't scan.

I found a lonely $3/1 Bayer cpn in my stash, they expire today!
1 more free and closer to the $25 threshold.

As long as it's a Kmart coupon(says store coupon and coded as a store coupon-normally starts with a "4") you can use it with a manufacturer's coupon. Only problem is that you can only use one per order. I haven't found the Kmart coupon, but will be looking now, because I have some of the $2 coupons coming from ebay. What value is it and did you find it on a display?
