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)

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.

Forgive me here..we got those Tide Qs in P&G and I'm REALLY new to KMart..I'm wondering if this seems worth it...

Tide 11.99 (?) 100oz
x 3 = 35.97
Use (3) 1.50 ( doubled to $2 ea) -6.00
= 29.97with $10 back WYB $30

Can I turn right around and use that $10 on the next purchase ..buying more P&G products to earn another $10?

$1.50 coupons don't double. It's only coupons up to $1 that will double, so you would be paying $1.50 more. The $10 P&G coupon you get this week is not good until next week.

Is anyone else having this "problem"? At Christmas time, I bought a water cooler and a paper shredder. I got a $10 SYWR credit to use from 12/26-12/29. I used it on 12/28. I went to see if I have any points today....and it's still saying I have those $10 in points "expiring on 12/29/12".

Edited to say: I called the 800 number and it says I have only 17 points.

Also, how do I change my telephone number for my account? I can't see it anywhere on the website (figures).

Ours is. It was definitely much harder to find than normal though. Check in your wraparound in the Sensodyne ad and then in the fine print.

Hmmm... just noticed there's still a limit of 5, but I don't see any mention of a minimum purchase of $25....

Log in to SYWR, then click the tab with your name on it in the top right, then click Settings, then Account on the left, then edit contact info. HTH! Smilie

Did this multiple times on my and dd card, Then went to other store and did it again w/both cards, only using points to pay and got back points, now have more than started w/pts. They have 10 items on 4 pages (each page is basket). Tried 2 different kleenex(didn't ring right price and didn't print bonus points(returned). Have kotex, glade, scrubbing bubbles,scott, poise,huggies, cottenelle, off, ziploc,windex, raid, pledge, and viva. Like the cheap stuff. MM or should I say point maker.

puerto rico, I think they are just big K's. I live between 2, like 5-10minutes. Most of the time, we don't get the P&G rewards either. If you search our ad it should show the special.

Based on past years, I would check first thing Monday morning. They have always been way behind other stores. And I know that for the past several years it has been Monday morning.

KMart is all I have in my area and Monday used to be my go to town day. So, about now I would make that my first stop and for at least the last four years on whatever Monday it dropped it would scan that as soon as they opened and often they didn't have the signs changed yet.

I didn't do it every year but there were a couple years I checked the prices Sunday night at closing time and they were not 90% but would be at open the next morning.

The food and candy varies. It will probably drop to 75% at the same time the stuff drops to 90%. The gift sets of things usually drop to 75% too but HBA gift sets don't always. Sometimes stay 50% until Easter but sometimes they do drop to 75% but I've never seen them go 90% before Easter.

Clear as mud? In a nut shell, check early Monday morning and scan everything.

I went about 9 a.m., but Christmas things were still 70% off, and I scanned to check too.

The store did have, however, a $5 clearance on some odd clearance toys, nothing of consequence at my store though.
