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.

I did the Dove/Axe deal--spend $30 get $7 off auto--took items right from display under the sign and did not get the $7 off my bill. Questioned it and was told must have bought wrong stuff?? WTH?? Even bought same items in picture on display--down to the exact scents. I am starting to hate Kmart.

This is NORMAL for kmarts promotions half the time they dont work. you will need to figure out what you got that didnt have the upc entered into the promo so it wont happen again. ( 'cause there is a snowballs chance in you know where that they are going to get it fixed!)

unfortunately, the employees, corporate and the people who do the ads, have NO clue , and will likely make something up if you ask.

they never have a list of upcs that DO work, and if push comes to shove they will tell you it is your coupons or if you pay full price, just make a reason up. shake head - yeah - its "kmart smart"

I can tell you the items that I purchased last week that worked. Dove 8 pk bar soap in a variety of scents, clear mens shampoo, suave kids detangler. Automatically gave the $7 disc ount under the rewards section on the right side of the screen. Make sure that you are spending at least $30 as $29.9x will not work.

I bought 3 Degree adrenaline deos, 3 Clear shampoo and 1 Axe bodywash. The Clear were $5.00 each, the Axe was $4.29 and the deos were $4.49 each. I only used 2 if the buy degree get clear free q's . If I remember from last time, I think one of the Clears did not work then. I got one of each variety--there were 3 kinds at my store.

I bought 2 of each of the 3 different mens clear and it gave the discount, so I don't think it was the clear. Maybe the axe bodywash? I don't remember the degree that I bought (it was whatever was cheapest). Did your buy the degree get the clear shampoo free coupon work? Mine had to be manually entered. Both that one and the buy a simple cleanser get the simple wipes free both refused to work. Register would just beep and not do anything when scanned., manually entered eventually, but it was a bit of a hassle. Also forgot that the simple foaming cleanser and the exfoliating wipes both worked for the $7 discount.

My coupons did not work either. Did not buy any of the Simply/Simple stuff. They are part of that deal too or another deal ?? Maybe I will try again with no Axe and see if it works

The simple items are not working on this deal either. I did two different simple transactions and both times no 7.00 discount. The manager ended up giving me 7.00 in cash back on each of the transactions bounce

Super thanks for the 50% off confirmation & the heads up on Beyblades! Those would be perfect for my boys' Easter baskets... if I can remember which ones they already have. Lol!

If you ever buy anything that is a bonus package, (more ounces, free gift, bogo taped together) they will not work. They usually ring up at the sale price but they never work for a deal. Don't know if that is your problem, but I know it has been for me in the past.
