*Note you are allowed to use only 1 store catalina (Kmart Savings Coupon) per transaction. Any catalina that print on the register receipt paper is a Kmart Savings Coupon. If the catalina prints out of the catalina machine it can be either a store or manufacturer coupon and will say at the top. You can use more than one manufacturer’s catalinas as long as they have an item to attach to, similar to Walgreens.

What Double Deals are you finding at Kmart this week?


  1. I love your tips for K-mart shopping. The posts are misleading however, as you use rewards from your previous purchases to get such low prices. For example, the average reader would actually spend $30 on the transactions above, not $5. It is kind of double dipping when you state the rewards in your previous posts as discounts and state them again the following week as discounts for your next purchase.

    • My percentage saved is always calculated on the out of pocket price I paid, so the gift cards and catalinas are only counted when they are spent.

  2. My $1/2 7up coupons wouldn’t double. Did your cashier have to do it manually?

  3. Stephanie says:

    I had read that the doubles events would end in April. Has this been extended?

    • I know they are everyday through 4/28 per the monthly savings guide, but I haven’t heard for after that.

  4. My 7up coupons didn’t double either but they manually doubled them for me. Awesome trip (as always!).

  5. Are we getting Albies dblers this weekend?

  6. Some deals I picked up today..
    Aquafresh fresh and fruity on sale for $1.50 – free after double
    Crayola My First Scissors $2.79 – .79 cents after double

  7. HI Dawn:) I am new to your site..It looks great! I am wondering on the first transaction..last week with the P&G deal, I tried to buy Pampers and get the $25 dblrs and the register would not double or give the free item as they said diapers are NOT grocery…I see you made out with Huggies. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    • I have never had a problem with diaper coupons doubling. They are included in drugstore/grocery. Are you sure you were at $25 before coupons. Also make sure you do your transactions in this order:

      1) scan card
      2) scan all items
      3) store coupons (including free item)
      4) manufacturer’s coupons
      5) catalinas
