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.

Thanks to Serra for adding the additional wikis! I about to hit the road to Orlando today for work, but I will work on updating the additional wiki's tonight.

My thoughts were to have the Wiki's look like this:

#1 - Kmart FAQ & Misc
#2 - Weekly Deals & Sneak Peeks (thanks agan Nuff for next week's sneak peek!)
#3 - Monthly Deals
#4 - Clearance Finds

If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I'm completely open to making this work however the majority wants to see it. I just think it will be better to have the deals seperated out, for less confusion.

Thanks for the new thread. Smilie
One of my Kmarts actually called me today to tell me my 30 Crave cat treats were in (rainchecks)
So I bought 10 of them along with H&S (BOGO) & Pringles for each transaction.
Nothing else to report. Just wanted to write a post so I can find Kmart thread again because it always disappears on my main DS forum page....even though I'm subscribed & I sticky it daily.
This is the ONLY way I can guarantee finding this thread again.

Wow they actually called you on a raincheck. My Kmart has NEVER done that even though they have my phone # on each raincheck.

That's odd that you lose your sticky. I never do. It's always on the top of the Drugstore forum.

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.

Forgot to mention the excuse they gave me last week as to why the ham voucher wouldn't work on an order: "You didn't get HOLIDAY groceries. Only HOLIDAY groceries count, like stuffing and gravy and squash and ..."

Facepalm

It was actually because of my mistake (tried to use 2 SYWR vouchers in one order). But when they voided the order and re-rang, the CSR still insisted it wouldn't work. I read her the other part, where it said it was "good on any ... including DIAPERS" ... LOL! And by golly, she didn't even stick around to see that it worked on my Capri Sun, tortillas, cheese ... LMAO
