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.

Hi,

Newbie to kmart deals. I placed an online order and the items were not in my local store and are being shipped free to my store. They are supposed to come in tomorrow. The confirmation e-mail said the reward points would be added once the order is either delivered or picked up. Does anybody know when the points become available to spend? Like once I pick up the online order, are the points instantly available where I can then go shop inside the store or do they get added the next day similar to rite aid/plenti points?

TIA!
the points usually post when the item is shipped.
You should be able to use the points without even picking up the item.

In my experience, when the item arrives at the store and the store process it is when those points get awarded. Sometimes ship to store ruin the points being awarded depending on how the employee process the package. That also happened to me once. There was a store receipt attached to my item it like it was rung up at the store register.

Thank you both for the info. I placed the order on Wednesday and still don't have the points. I'm worried now about the store not processing the package correctly.

Swj, what did you do when your store processed it wrong? Were you able to get them to fix it? Is there a way for me to cancel it completely and get my money back if I can't get the points credited correctly?

Unfortunately my local store had virtually everything out of stock in store. I'm pretty sure they will be on the next batch of store closings. Every time there are new store closing announcements and they aren't on the list, I am puzzled beyond belief.

Since many of you may have points from the recent clearance deals, you might be interested in this deal. Some Fruit of the Loom and Joe Boxer underwear are giving $15 in points back wyb 3. 2 examples below, but there are others that are closer to break even, or a small MM. And points roll as long as you pay a small amount out of pocket.

I think there's a post in Hot Deals with more detail, but I found this originally on Cuckoo.

Here is a post I wrote describing when points post, based on how you ordered: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=87537339&postcount=22182

Since you shipped to Kmart and you say the item hasn't arrived yet, I wouldn't worry about it until you get the ready for pickup email. It's true however that ship-to-Kmart is likely the riskiest way to order something and still expect the points back, as a lot of people report never getting the points even once their item arrives at the store. I am not sure if it's that they're not processing the order correctly at the store level, or if it depends on whether the particular deal is still active once the order arrives at the store, or what, but anecdotally it does seem like a lot of people never receive their points when shipping to Kmart. In cases where my Kmart is out of stock but the ship-to-store option is available, I personally always ship to Sears instead - since then the points post when the item is shipped, not when it becomes ready for pickup.

Kmart has Athletec mens performance hoodies starting at $15.99 and giving back $25.xx in points each, can buy multiples.

Partial points roll. .01 does not work.

Make sure you have not maxed your Athletec deal already.

OOS for shipping, but still found some for in-store pickup.
Thank you. If you've done the Athletech deal and not maxed it out, it seems to give partial points only. I ended up maxing out Athletech with the underwear as my husband said they were great.

Hmmm, I don't know. I've placed two orders, one today, one yesterday and they both show 10k back when I bought 3. Points said they would show up the next day. All were ready for pickup today so let's see if they show up tomorrow. I do have screenshots of the review order screen.

You guys are talking about 2 different deals. There was an OOP Athletech deal for $15 back on every $15 spent, which appears to have ended. There is a different deal for $10 back when you buy 3 men's underwear, and Athletech underwear (as well as other brands) count for it. That deal is still ongoing and rolls.

Double coupons are back for one week only, 8/28 to 9/3, in participating stores.

This time it's a minimum spend of $25 in grocery, household cleaning and health and beauty. Five coupons up to $2 will be doubled per day per account.

This will be in all stores with a few exceptions:
Stores that never get a circular and don't get the price download are excluded
Stores that have had a closing date announced are excluded
Puerto Rico, Guam, & Virgin Islands are excluded.
If store is supported by circular, they will be doubling.
