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.

Could you tell me what the $5 coupon is from that came off at the end. Thanks

Quote from Tracey12345 View Post :
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!

Nothing works with this cashier. Maybe she scans them backwards or something. I don't think she wants them to work. She kept pointing out to the CS that came up that it says SELECT pringles - and it said I needed $25 in GROCERIES (I had $55 in groceries, pet food, and Olay...) Head Bang

CS didn't TRY to scan it - They both just kept reading it over and over again - so I just kept telling them "Forget it,, just take the Pringles off"

Of course, they had to void the ENTIRE transaction. Said it was because I had used my Rewards Card....

Didn't seem all that "rewarding" to me....

I am not sure if I am tough enough to ever get the hang of Kmart...

It would be better if they just had cheaper prices than all these complex point and coupon scenarios that may or may not work...
Inquiring minds want to know.....did you get the FREE Pringles today?
I have to go to Kmart tomorrow to use up some Purex tabs & hopefully some Crave treats and I'm going to get my son some more pizza pringles. Both of my kmarts are 16 miles away in completely different directions and I really hope they have the products in stock. Tracybeans is sure lucky to only be 9 blocks away from Kmart. These gas prices are outrageous! I'm definately going to get some RC's for Crave since the $1/1 MQ's don''t expire until 5/27.

Lu2shop4fun used the super coupon in the ad that takes off $1 for each of the bounty paper towels. I think it's the basic kind.

So.... what are our feelings on whether KM will allow 2 coupons with a BOGO sale? My guess is that it'll be a no-go, but I wonder if it's worth a try. I've searched and haven't found anything about it one way or the other in their coupon policy (although I admit I haven't searched very hard), but I can just see how this would go...

Take 2 products to register. They ring both products and one of them turns into a '0' price. I had over 2 coupons, and the coupons make them enter a price/pick the items from that damn pop-up screen. The first one is no problem. The second one they have to select the item with the '0' price. The cashier looks at me like I'm a criminal and tells me, in no uncertain terms, that I can't use a coupon on a free product. But doesn't bother to try it.

Sigh. I have 30 q's that aren't going to use themselves!

The Second item will not ring as 0. On the top right of the screen it will show as a "savings". To be honest, the cashier will not even notice, if the items are bogo.

Really! Well! That does change my plans for next week. Big Grin Clearly I've never bought anything that was a BOGO (sale) item at KM. Smilie Thanks so much!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday. Decided I didn't feel like beating my head against a brick wall by going to Kmart today, so I updated the Wiki for next week deals instead. Smilie

All of what's available in the online preview, and what Nuff gave us, have been posted with matchups. They're all under Wiki #2, underneath this week's matchups. Didn't want to delete in case someone might need it for shopping today. Think I'll "archive" it, like the Publix thread does tomorrow.

If anyone has anything to add, let me know.

Wish I had some of those Qs left! Smilie Btw... if you don't care about what product it is, mygofer has got2B Glued Freeze Spray, Blasting, 12 oz listed as $5.29 (YMMV at the store), but that would be a $.71 MM for you, for every 2 you bought! Easy way to get to $25 and double whatever Qs you can use on other items.

So jealous.... but I won't pay for the Qs on the bay. Their prices are out of this flipping world!

Agreed! Those Q's are so high...I just refuse to spend that much!

Can anyone tell me if the Suave Kids is included in the $10/$3 CRT offer? I am thinking about spending my PG CRTs on Suave, but only if the kids is part of the deal.

Yeah with all the deals not working at the beginning of the week it threw me off and I haven't felt like going the past couple days. It can get stressful shopping at Kmart. Frown

Yes. Smilie I did! The amazing thing is when I went back, the coupons scanned just like they should have - and there was no problem with the Pringles coupon working, no problem with the $1 Olay coupons scanning and doubling. Etc. The items were the same because they saved them for me. They were supposed to save ALL my items. But I had some 60 cent clearance Mott juice, and some 50 cent clearance cookies that disappeared. Customer service said someone probably wanted them. Hmmm It seems like if you put items back for a customer, people shouldn't be digging through the basket taking stuff they want.

But the important part is that the coupons SHOULD have worked in the first two attempts. It is frustrating when their stuff won't work and then they think YOU bought the wrong thing.

But this is a different store than the one where I have been having trouble with the CS person.

I spent over $50 to get the 5,000 points (per email offer) and I didn't get the points though...

I am out of town - visiting my sister's kids in Oklahoma this weekend. We might go to a Kmart down here. Smilie

It looks great! It's so nice to have multiple wiki's, I think that was a great idea! I'll probably head over tonight after I'm done painting DS1's room today. I had forgotten how annoying painting is. Yawn.

I scoped out the prices earlier this week after Nuff posted the preview, and all of the items that I saw were between $5.49- $6.49 at my store. I might do a test run tomorrow morning at my local store and then head over to the bigger KM that's further away to use up the rest of the q's... we'll just have to see what tomorrow brings! Smilie I never got a chance to use them earlier at CVS or Wags because of one thing or another, and I've been hoping and hoping that there would be another opportunity before they expired, so yay! Big Grin

I hope you have a great time with your sister's kids! And YAY for all of your coupons scanning the way that they should, too! I'm sorry they put your clearance items back (or that someone dug through your basket and got them). That really stinks. Frown
