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.

Evening, all! The wikis have been broken down, and I added a little bit more info. I'll try to get more added later tonight, but it's been a long day, so it may be tomorrow night before I can get to the rest of it. Enjoy, and please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Thanks for all your work! I'm sure it will help people out! (I never personally use the wikis since I stay on top of reading the entire threads of the stores I shop at)

Ok OleMissGal78, I tried the Reach toothbrush deal at my local grocery store and it WORKED. I bought the exact same Reach Toothbrushes I bought at Kmart and I got no cat at Kmart.

I wonder what is up now Confused

I'm going to call them tomorrow with my receipt info.

How come Kmarts deals are ALWAYS screwed up. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) At least they have the Scott deal printing now.
Thanks for the update. I've got it on my list to email/call Catalina tomorrow and deal with this. I don't understand why it's not printing properly there. Did your Qs beep at either KM or the grocery store? Has anyone else had success with the Reach TB deal?

The q had to be manually entered in at Kmart. At my local grocery store their registers can read the new GS codes so the coupons scanned right through. Kmart just has to get to 2012 one of these years.

Ok so I bought the Scott tonight and did not get the $5 back. I bought 4 Scott extra soft packs (12 rolls) used 4 ($1) coupons and didnt get the cat. Want to send my sister but she will not be happy if it doesnt work. Could it have been the Catalina machine? I asked and they said it was working but who knows. I got the p & g fine but wasn't sure if the Scott came from the cat machine or register. Has anyone bought the extra soft? Only thing i could think of besides the machine being down. Thanks.

Also the king size candy bars are $1 each, use the .75/2 doubled ( from tearpad/ snickers, twix brands) makes them only .25 each

So I'm new to Kmart, do you guys see any issue in my scenario?

(2) Whiskas Dry Cat Food 3lb $4.19
(12) Fancy Feast Appetizers 10/$10
(5) Crave Cat Treats 2.1 oz 10/$10
Total: $25.39
Use:
(2) $1/1 any Whiskas Dry Cat Food -----doubled
(3) $1/4 Fancy Feast Appetizers for Cats, 2 Oz. Trays -----doubled
(5)$1/1 Crave Soft Treats for Cats
Final Total: $10.38

Not the cheapest scenario, but I'm so use to getting cat food last minute. I really hope I will find everything & maybe score some good clearance to get my total further from $25.
PS Like the new thread!

I think the SB deal ended Saturday.

Current promos I'm working on:

Buy $30 worth of P&G get $10 CRT

Buy $20 worth of Scott get $5 CRT (I guess this is a YMMV, it hasn't been printing for some)

Buy $10 worth of Suave get $3 CRT

The wiki is so awesome you guys! Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to making it so informative and helpful. Smilie

if you were able to get to $30 with your pet items you would get a coupon for 3000 bonus points=$3 on your next pet purchase.
I don't know what barcode is on the FF but if it is one that doesn't scan and they manually enter it, it won't auto-double as it will only attach to one item.

I didn't buy the Extra Soft, so I can't help on that end, but the $5 was from the register, not the Catalina machine.

I found $1/1 Head and Shoulder q's from the TARGET 8pk Bounty that was on a gc deal last Winter. There were q' books inside the packages and H n S was one of them. I know some of you might have them. The BOGO's only attach to 1 bottle, so you can use the $1/1 too.
