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".

Bonus Member: $0 to $2499.99 annual spend at KMart, Sears, or Lands End (with email address on account)

Silver VIP Level: $2500 to $4999.99 annual spend at KMart, Sears, or Lands End.

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.

Icon glasses did NOT ring up bogo so they only accept Holiday coupon so I cancelled order.
Kmart would NOT dbl $2 mq's either.

Yep similar happened to me. They ring up either $9.99 or $12.99ea & do not automatically deduct the 2nd pair. I was too exhausted to fight but when I go back on Wednesday if they haven't updated their programming I WILL be asking for $3 price mistake in register for each pair. I brought my friend with me and she did some glade transactions and didn't get the catalina because machine was broken/unplugged. OH Kmart why don't you write a coupon policy for your customers and staff? My friend said it was the first time at Kmart in years and will be her last time. Did anyone notice next weeks KQ in monthly kmart flyer has a picture of theatre box of milk duds candy but reads Free Snickers fun size pack with $25 purchase." Crazy

** Also, before going to Kmart I went to the online savings book and the BOGO glasses are NOT there ---deleted and page 29 does not open up. Thankfully I printed a couple last week so I could copy them. I was told in store that the online Kmart savings coupons would not scan in the system. I have 1 of the store books in which I said I'd let them scan that one but would give them the Kmart pdf coupon. Anyway the glasses do not ring up bogo and you can not print the coupon from their downloadable coupon booklet. I tell ya, Kmart is Crazy

Make sure they are priced 14.99 or 9.99. Some of the 12.99's are not bogo for some odd reason

I just printed it so it's printable now. I went to KM today and it had a ton of the glasses but they were out of the other things I wanted, so I left.... hope they get this fixed.

What happened? Where did everyone go?? Is everyone else staying out of Kmart because of the holiday rush too? Looks like I might be using up the last of my CATs on Axe gift sets after the coupon comes out next week. Frown

next week glade and ziploc are 2/5

there is a $5 gc wys $50

so assuming all prices

axe 9.99
axe 9.99 ( this might be the limit for this q, or it might be 4)
glade = 15 leaves you just shy of $35 towards the $50

Nothing much, mm on pantene. The free item of the week is milk duds which is only $1 but the coupon takes off $3. A lot of marked down hair care items and face stuff. Free brut after doubled coupons. Kinda blah, cause there are no good cat or points deals!!

Thanks! I finally called ahead to a store I know that had 2 toys I wanted. They said they were doing the 50% off clearance toys! So I drove over there at night, and because of my faulty gas gage I ran out of gas on the exit ramp. I got the gas thanks to kindness of relatives, and got to the Kmart a little bit before closing.

The toys were gone. Anything of good value was cleaned out.
