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 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.

Is your $18 oop minus CATs you received? Sry I am not familiar w/ Hanes promo. I will look it up once kids go to sleep.

Thank you so much for the email q...I found that one which doesn't seem to exclude Lands End so I will try it on getting DS5 a backpack at LE inside Sears.

Also found a get $10 in pts wys $15 q in an email titled "campus is calling" from July 24th. Maybe I should try this first on a LE lunch box Smilie
The promo is in ad - Buy 1 Hanes + 1 Tide + your choice of 1 Hanes, Downy or Tide, get $10 in points.

Here is the math:

4 Suave BW - $2 each ($8)
2 Dove - $4.99 & BOGO 50%
2 Hanes - $7.99 each ($15.98)
1 Tide pods - $4.49
= $38.45
- $2.50 for BOGO 50% Dove
- 2 x $2/1 Dove Styler or Treatment (7/26 RP) *Takes off $8
- 2 x BOGO Suave Body Wash (7/26 RP) *Takes off $8
- 1 x $1/1 Tide Pods (7/12 RP) *Takes off $2
= $17.96 + Get $10 & $15 from coupon & $4 from the tracking offer.

Women's underwear is advertised at $5.49 + BOGO 50% off, if you can find those instead of 2 for $7.99 each you'll pay $10.21 & get $10 back...my kids just needed socks & undies.

Think some were mentioned already, but a few freebie/cheap items I saw today:

Tampax Peal 16ct 3.99 free with $2/1
Pantene styling $4 free with $2/1
Tresseme 3.99 free with $2/1
Clorox dustwipes 2.99 free with 1.50/1
Clorox Pump 3.79 .29 with 1.75/1 IP or .79 with 1.50/1
Clorox Scrubbers 3.79 .79 with 1.50/1
Bic Soleil 5.49 1.49 with $2/1

Optifree is on sale 7.99, so 2.99 after the $5/1 and and easy way to get up to 25. Not sure if this is the best price around, but I don't have a lot of stores around here and a bunch of the coupons and they expire 8/2.

Quite a lot of clearance in the makeup and perfume in my store. Found some Rimmel eyeliner down to 99 cents so free with the $1/1 without needing doubles. Also saw Tree Hut and Bodycology 75%+ and quite a few perfumes and cologne 75% or so.

Did you scan your Kmart card or give your phone number? That is usually the issue when that sort of thing happens to me at Kmart.
Scanned my card.
This is a horrible store, so I wouldn't be surprised if they don't bother to, like, sync with the national office.

In the case of Kmart...did your cashier try using the scan gun? That usually works for those crazy gs1 barcodes. The flatbed just sucks...especially if they don't wipe it down vomit
Other then that...it is really up to the store. They can pick their battles.
I didn't even see the guy scan the coupons. He did seem lazy.

1 Tide pods - $4.49
Which Tide pods did you find for $4.49?

Never mind!!

Edited to answer my own question in case someone else's store doesn't bother with signs...spring meadow or ocean mist 16 ct bags! The other similar sized types rang up $5.99 on the price check machine.

The new Clorox items are on the Snap app with .75 unlimited rebates, so MM on the dustwipes and takes the other two to .04 after coupon and rebate.
