Kmart Doubles Shopping Trip May 8, 2013

Kmart Shopping

Transaction 1

Buy 4 Stride Gum, clearance $3
Use (2)  $1/2 Stride Gum Single Pack (SS 04/07/13)
*I am not sure why these didn’t double, gum coupons have doubled for me before?

Buy 3 Nestle Fun Size $9


Buy 2 Skinny Cow Candy $6
Double $1/1 Skinny Cow Multi-Pack Candy (SS 04/28/13)

Buy 2 Keebler Club $5 (0r TOWN HOUSE)
Double $1/2 Keebler Crackers (RP 03/24/13), this coupon is regional and I did not have it.
*Also there is a catalina on Keebler Town House, but it is not triggering for Club, so improve on my deal by buying Town House and doubling the $1/2 coupon. 🙂

Buy 2 Smart Sense Water 35 Pack $7

Buy 2 Fancy Feast Cans $1.18
Use 2 Free Fancy Feast wyb $25 from May Savings Guide (took off $2.36!)

Buy $25 Kmart Gift Card

$5 Instant Savings wyb $15 Nestle

Pay $42.82

Receive $5 gift wyb $25 Kmart Gift Card, $2 in Points wyb $25 Kmart Gift Card (mine did work, if yours didn’t call shop your way rewards).  Note you are allowed to do this gift card deal 2 times, but it should be done in separate transactions.  My second gift card transaction did not trigger the Bonus points, but I am going to watch for them to show up in my account and if they don’t contact Shop Your Way Rewards! $5 Gift Cards are valid from 5/13-5/18, $25 may be used at any time.

$2 Catalina wyb 3 Nestle Fun Size, (Possible Catalina if you buy Town House rather than Club)

Free Kmart Shopping Bag wyb $50.  I was totally surprised by this because I didn’t think the gift card would count, but my cashier automatically did it after the prompt on her screen.  This bag has a note inside that every time I shop with this bag and have the cashier scan the barcode inside the bag from 5/12-6/8/13, I will receive 5% (or 10% for VIP member) in points! This is also a very cute and heavy duty bag! Score!

Total Before Coupons: $56.18
Still Have: $25 Kmart Gift Card, $5 Kmart Gift Card (to be used next week only), $2 Catalina, and $2 in Points, plus bag and points promo!
More $25 Scenarios here if you want to do other deals to combine with the gift card deal!

*Note you are allowed to use only 1 store catalina (Kmart Savings Coupon/CRT) 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.

    The $1/2 items are no longer doubling at my store either. And, the manager tried to do an override but it didn’t work. She tried twice.

    I had $1/2 toothpaste and the paste were a buck each. No go on the double. So I swapped it out for 50 cents off one, and that worked. Didn’t need the paste, just needed to hit my $35 (had a fiver off $35).

    Anyway, that’s the scoop from my end. Happy Couponing 🙂

      Thanks for the info Whisk, I am going to have to do some trial and error. I hope it is not true for all $1/2 coupons.

    i went to kmart tonight and spent 64 dollars. they never told me about the bag deal.
    I get so upset with kmart. I get overcharged almost every time I go there, and they are always ripping me off on the rewards and then the store won’t make it right. what is the rewards phone number?

      Cheryl, I would go to your store. It is clearly marked in the ad with the only exceptions, pharmacy or while supplies last. They should give this promo to you. Sorry you have issues, I must admit I had a great store and a couple of great cashiers who work well with couponers. I hope you can figure it out. Good luck!
