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.

Gees, just save your gas $ and time and hang it up with that Kmart already.

I've already punted (from before Christmas), but Coverlaugh can't stop reading this thread and all the trials and tribulations ya'll go thru with Krap-Mart.

Not that you want to be 'outed' on FB, but has anyone thought about posting their horror stories (just cut and paste from here) on their FB page to get some *ahem* attention.

Hi Luv2shop4fun! I have a question about this transaction(I couldn't quote since the thread is retired):

Found out the pringles works as a awesome filler if u are short a few cents. Bought:
5 bounty napkins $5.97
1 $1.89
My total was 29.85 before adding the pringles.
The $5 came off at the end, free pringles came off and all 5 of my bounty coupons doubled. Total after coupons was $15.75 and I got the $10 CRT

Did you buy the napkins or the paper towels in this scenario? I have plenty of PT and need more napkins. Just wondering if the super coupon works on the napkins too(if I can find any!) Or are you using a different coupon.

TIA!

I have a question about the P&G deal. Could I use a trial size product to get above the $30 threshold. I was going to get 4 Downy 90 load and the Pringles. That would put me at about $29.50. I was going to do the buy 4 cereals get free milk too so no more q's would double. Then again I'm wondering if it's even worth it because I'm sure it will be a nightmare and something will go wrong lol.

Does anyone have any idea of which pringles work for the free pringles?

I stopped by Kmart between classes - and tried to do a $50 transaction - to get points from an email offer.

My qs weren't doubling because the cashier's hand scanner wasn't working - and when she manually entered them, the register didn't give her the choice to pick the Olay, (for the $1 Olay coupon) - so she picked the Crave - which is only $1 so the q wouldn't double.

Since they knew what was going on - it would have been nice if they could just refunded it at CS (or not have one of the only two lanes open be one they knew the scanner wasn't working right..)

But they voided the entire order and wanted me to re-ring at the next checkout lane. I had to get to class and didn't have time to mess with it. But they said they would hold my stuff for me.

When I went back (between classes - 25 minute drive each way) I got the cashier who never wants to enter my SYWR number until the END of the transaction (AFTER she has scanned the coupons...). I wouldn't put my stuff up to be rang up until she FINALLY entered my number. I told her I needed it entered at the beginning of the transaction - but she wasn't happy with me.

Then my Pringles coupon wouldn't work. I got the Honey Mustard. Cashier said it is only on SELECT varieties and I must have bought the wrong flavor.

Head Bang God grant me the serenity.....

So I told them to just take the Pringles off. I didn't want to pay full price for them, and I didn't want to mess with trying to get the coupon to work. CS came over and they read the coupon a lot of times and then voided the WHOLE order. Head Bang

I had to make the 25 minute drive back to class... so I didn't have time to mess with ringing it all up again and HOPING the coupons would work.

They said they would put the order back up for me to come back. But dang it. How many trips should I make to Kmart just to try to buy something at the advertised price?

I was SO frustrated that I wasted ALL my free time today driving back and forth to Kmart and getting nowhere.

Now I am silly enough to try it again in the morning.

What is the trick on the Pringles?

OMG your crazy. LMAO Wink

I would never put up with ALL that BS. And on top of it waste my time and gas going back 2 or 3 times in ONE day. Especially 25 miles each way. And then ending up with NOTHING. shake head

You either gotta go to someone higher at Kmart and get things fixed or give up on Kmart.

Would you even be saving any money with all the gas your wasting at $4+ or a gallon?

All your driving REALLY shocks me. I'm about 9 blocks from Kmart and that's enough for me. laugh out loud(But then I'm not in a huge city where it can be normal to drive 25 miles to get someplace Stick Out Tongue )

I thought you were going to get ahold of the DM?

I heard that someone bought a trial size Crest and it work for the deal. I just got another pringles instead because it didn't make sense to pay 99c for a trial size Crest when I can get them FREE at Drugstores. And the Pringles would definalty get eaten up. Big Grin

Oh! I meant paper towels!! I am pretty sure the bounty napkins are cheaper than the towels.

I received the following CRTs:

Earn 10,000 points on your next merchandise pruchase of $50 or more

Two questions:

1. Does your total have to be $50 AFTER all coupons or can they scan it before they scan any of your other coupons? ETA I read the wiki and it looks like I need to spend $50 after all coupons, correct?

2. Will this overlap with next weeks GC deal, purchase $50 in merchandise and receive a $5 GC?

Thanks!

Finally made it to K yesterday. Did the P&G deal with 4 large bottles of H&S and 1 can of Pringles which worked great for getting to $30. I added Purex laundry tabs to each transaction until I ran out of Q's...wish I had more Q's but since they expire tomorrow I'll just be happy with what I got.

Once I ran out of Purex Q's I went hunting for items I could add to my transactions for free/cheap and found some clearance items:

Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub 5 oz tube marked down to $2 - used $1 peelies on Biore in the cleanser aisle or you could use the $1 Ban, Biore, Curel, Jergens, John Frieda peelie

Pantene Classic Styling Gel 6.8 oz tube marked down to $1.50 - $1 MQ from a booklet

John Frieda Root Awakening Strength Restoring Hair Spray 10 fl oz marked down to $1.50 - used $1 Ban, Biore, Curel, Jergens, John Frieda peelie

When does the Suave $10/$3 offer end? I'm trying to work up scenarios for next week to use up my P&G CRT's.

The reward card "should" prompt before any cpns are scanned.
