Kmart double coupons through 10/4

Posted October 3, 2014



Kmart is Doubling coupons up to $2.00 through Saturday, October 4.  Here are the details:

You must be a member of the Shop Your Way rewards program (join for free at stores).

They will double up to 5 total coupons per day (tracked through your rewards card) on grocery and health and beauty products.

Minimum purchase of $25 or more to get coupons doubled. During previous events, the $25 minimum was before coupons so as long as your subtotal before coupons is $25, they will double your coupons.

There is a limit of 4 like coupons.

I did confirm that the Raleigh Kmart on Western Blvd. is participating. You may want to call your store to confirm they are also participating.

As terminalwriter posted on the blog today, you can get the Starbucks Refreshers for free at Kmart with the $1.50 coupon from recently.

There is also a good deal on Suave products. Many are on sale for $2. Use the $1.50 or $2 coupons from 9/28 RP to get them as low as free.

Keep in mind that Kmart does not offer this promotion very often. When they do, their registers are not set up to handle the doubling well. Many readers have posted in the past about difficulty getting their coupons doubled correctly. I have not shopped this event for years after it took me 30 minutes in line to get 5 coupons doubled correctly the last time I was there.

If you find any other good deals, please share them here.

    Not a kmart close to me... and not sure if it would even be worth the effort for a measly 5 coupons.

    Appreciate you letting us know about it! Kmart corporate needs to get it together with a promo like this, but only allowing 5 coupons...

    It was the KMart on Six Forks Road

    and for those who bank with Bank of America, they have the cash back deals and Kmart is one of them. You get 5% back on any kmart purchase. Not the best, but better than nothing

    JCALZARETTA1 - I'm sorry. :( I've been four times this week. My biggest hiccup has been Qs that won't scan. (Granted that has been a consistent hiccup at Kmart.) But they reviewed the Q with the product and put it in manually. I honestly was thrilled with how smoothly my transactions went so far this week.

    jcalzaretta1 - which store was that at? Sorry to hear your experience was so negative.

    terminalwriter - thanks for the additional info. Glad to hear your doubling went better than others.

    Cashiers had no idea what they were doing. Coupons did not double and cashier kept insisting they did. Asked for a refund, left all products there and left. Not worth the time for 5 items.

    There's a P&G rebate $10.00 when you spend $30. It's not as good as it was earlier in the week, because there were offers of spend X dollars and get Y back in points. (Which made for some big Freebies/Moneymakers) The rebate form doesn't specify you can't use coupons.

    4x Pantene Shampoo/Conditioner on sale Buy One Get One 50% off for $4.99
    4x Pantene Gel/Mousse on sale Buy One Get One 50% off for $4.99
    Downy Fabric Softener, Non-Concentrated, Clean Breeze, 64 fl oz, sells for $3.69

    This puts you over $30.

    Use four $2.00/1 - Pantene Styling Product coupon. (All will double to a total of $16.00.) (I know from experience)
    Use one $1.00/1 - Downy Product or Bounce Bursts coupon (P&G 09/28, Expires 10/31/14)
    Use two $4.00/2 - Pantene Shampoo, Conditioner or Styler coupon

    Pay $7.63 submit for $10 MIR = $2.37 MM

    When you use the $2/1 Stylers. That was an important part in that last deal. :)

    Six forks is as well, I've been to both this week. They have $10 packs of huggies that you can get to $3 with the $3 Snap and a doubled $2 printable. (Do you want me to share a link to these, printables, they would have affiliate stuff in them?) You can get Keebler Cookies, various on sale for $2.50 free with 1000 point KFR ($1.50 Q) Suave Professionals are on sale 2/$4, so they make good filler to get to the $25...
