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)

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 have out of town relatives coming in this evening, so I did not have time to run to K-mart, but how could I resist?
Our small town has a k-mart about 15 minutes away, so I thought I would do a quick trip of viva (since the cat expires today) and purex and ziploc. Well, that store doesn't even carry the 6 pack of viva. The manager tried to tell me they have never carried viva...there is a 2-pack and an 8 pack on the shelves. *sigh* So I was already that far from home,
so I drove another 20 minutes and was able to get the viva, purex, ziploc, and $25 k-mart gift card. I did 2 orders and even though it was very very slow going, I am back home, and can finish cleaning my house for company!

Wow Oxy, is there a cat on the TP? I think I read that the Viva cat ends today, but that is great if there is a cat for Cottonelle! Thank you!
Starts tomorrow, I got the cat announcement at Wags. 11/04-12/11.

Since I don't shop at K-Mart, I don't know if they usually run Cottonelle Catalina deals, but if the Viva Cat deal works, I would think chances are, it will as well.

It's Buy 2, get 2 OYNO, and Buy 3, get $3 OYNO. For the 12pk obviously.

Now I remember why I've only stepped foot in KMart one other time this year besides today.

I first tried to do the gift card deal. I did not get the $5 bonus gift card or the 2,000 points. Cashier told me to go to customer service to get the gift card. Which I did without a problem. Then they gave me the number to call to get the points added to my account. I called when I got home and they are adding the points. But it was a major time waster both at the store and at home.

Then I went to get the Viva. I couldn't find the tear pad coupon but I bought 3 anyways. Then I didn't get the cat! I have sent Catalina an email with my receipt. Hopefully they will send it to me soon.

Nothing ever seems to work right when I go there and there is always long lines. Not sure if I want to go back tomorrow or not for the Cottonelle. I did look at it today. It is one ply.

They have such great deals sometimes but I wish they had better customer service.

Yes, Viva. There were 3 of the $2 Kmart TP left.

So first 3 transaction, I used 1 TP and 1 $2 MQ. Paid $0.97+tax and got the $4 cat.

Next 2 transaction, I bought some fillers, and used (3) $2 MQ and $4 Cat.

Basically I paid $8.xx OOP (including tax) for 15 packs of Viva 6pk and still have (3) $4 cats to work with. Smilie

The Q's scanned fine with the hand gun.
Thanks for the info. So the $4 viva cat rolls? Thank you!!!

The Viva cat rolled for me but I have a different question. Does the $3 instant saving stack? Could I buy 3 Viva and 3 Cottonelle tomorrow and get $6 off in on transaction? I haven't been to Kmart to do deals in a loooong time Laugh

Ugh I went to another store and they wanted to just use the cat on a clearance toy for my patient boys. Well $4 viva cat beeped on a $7 toy saying must match previous item. First the guy says I have to use it tomorrow then he says I have to buy viva then that it just won't work and he can't push it. Wow ghetto store no-mo!

Oh btw... I got the gc and it didn't prompt for a $5 card.... My total just got reduced by $5 automatically Smilie

No go, they have the not valid if reproduced warning on them.


And just to confirm the cat for cottonelle, I got the notice from Kmart today on my first transaction so it's working there starting tomorrow. And it is only 1 $3 instant saving per transaction according to the ad.

Sdnewby, pmed you about the easy up/pullups..

question for the kmart gurus..are we not supposed to use more than 1 cat per transaction? I was confused since Safeway allows us to use more than 1 per transaction..then the guy says I cannot use a $3/10 toy crt along with the $4 cat one one toy..finally just ended up buying other stuff in 4 transactions of $4 each and paid just tax..wasted a lot of time browsing and finally deciding what to buy..

Couldnt locate the curvy Rt66 jeans..all I found was skinny ones and classic ones..

not sure if it is already reported, but since I was scanning away Rt.66 items, I found that the Rt.66 tanks and crewneck short sleeve tees (near the Rt.66 jeans and the sweaters, folded on shelf) also rang up 99cents..also found Rt.66 Cargo jacket for 99cents but it was torn and the only one left so I had to pass..

I thought someone mentioned Hanes bras 99cents, but rang up 15% off for me..maybe I scanned the wrong stuff??
