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.

•Treat yourself to 5X Points during your birthday month.

Gold VIP Level: $5000 to $9999.99 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.

I got an email titled "Sears Get an instant $15 in points. Here's How!"

Redeem any amount of points and get $15 worth points instantly. Points will apply automatically towards your redemption, in store or online at Sears.

I redeemed points but it didn't take any from me. Just gave me the item free and I chose ship to store.
This is what I got free. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_1015...949062000P .

So I went back to the email and did it again and got this for $1.44 including tax. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_1015...929134000P

I accumulated points from both free/cheap purchases. The max points/$ it deducted was $17.63 which is over the $15.

Should I press my luck and try for more free stuff or will they catch this and take it away?

You know, I am not sure on that, but I think it is possible that if they deduct points from your account they won't deduct them until the item ships or the order is processed. You might want to check your account again when you get the pick up email.

Note on the $10 wyb $10 VIP coupon. Though the coupon - and the details on the coupon - only specify that you have to spend $10 I couldn't get it to apply in my Sears cart. The details of the Apply My Coupons in the cart stated you had to have a single item that is over $10 in your order for the coupon to apply. Once I placed a $10+ item in my cart - the coupon worked.

So it seems like they have different layers of rules for these dang things.

I think they would still have to apply the points if you make a $10 purchase in store. But if you want to avoid phone calls to SYWR try making sure you have a single item that cost at least $10 in your order.

As for shopping online - You have to have a single item that cost $10 in your cart - or the coupon won't "take" on the order.

Has anyone used more than one of the $10 in points when you spend $10. I used my kmart one and received another with a different code. I assume it would work, but wanted to check. Can I also use the other $10 Sears one or are they all linked as one offer?

You need to start spending more $$$ and coupons to get to VIP! Smilie
The nice thing is - once you get VIP status, it lasts through the following year. I don't think I have met the spending level for VIP yet this year - but since I made it last year, I have it this year - and have all year to make spend the required amount.
