Kmart: .75 Coupon Doubles Ad Mistake?

Well, it looks like Kmart made a mistake on their 5/3 ads in some regions. Readers emailed Kmart regarding the .75 doubles being advertised and this is what they received back:

"Thank you for contacting Kmart regarding the Kmart Double Coupon Event. We appreciate your interest in this promotion. This event is for select participating Kmart locations from 5/3 - 5/9. The event is to double coupons up to a $2 value. We invite you to visit any of the participating stores. We apologize for any frustration the conflicting advertisement has caused you."

I would go ahead and contact your local Kmart and see if they are in fact doubling coupons up to $2 instead of .75. If so, please let us all know in the comment section below!

pssst... I will have a Kmart double deals list up on Saturday!

I just called the Kmart Customer Service line (1-800-KMART-4U) and asked about my Kmart and to my suprise they said it was a mis-print and that they would be doubling up to $2. Yippy!!!! Now I just hope that people at Kmart say the same thing.

Will you be posting the deals? I went 3 times last week and used your suggestions and did soooo good. My husband told me that they probably did go down to only doubling 75 cents because they lost money with me. lol (although I confirmed that it was a misprint). Now I just wish they would come out with a $5 off $50 like last week and it would be perfect!!!

I also called 18(66)-KMART-4U and asked about my store as I had also heard that the doubling up to .75 was wrong and they informed me that it was indeed wrong and my State of Florida was doubling up to $2.00! Like Anonymous said, I hope my store knows too.. :)

Called the Kmart in Niceville, Florida (the closest to me) and they said doubling up to $2! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!

I called about the St.Louis Missouri stores and they said it was a mistake and yes, they are doubling up to $2, not quite as good as our triple up to $4 last week but we'll take it.

I live in Central PA and they are doubling up to $2 and tripling up to $.75.

Sweets - thanks for the St Louis info! I am ready for more doubles!

Where are people getting the 5/$50 coupon? I thought you could only sign up for that coupon once? I used one back in October. Can I sign up for another?

Contacted K-mart Cust. Serv. Pottstown PA store is TRIPLE up to .75 cents and DOUBLE .75 cents up to $2.00. Then contacted the store Mgr. (Adam) who was not aware of the misprint so I communicated this to him. Everyone - please be diligent in checking your receipts just in case!

I called the corporate offices and they confirmed both Mesa, AZ Kmart locations (Lindsey & Main, Power & Southern) are doubling coupons up to $2. Neither store is tripling coupons. Anon- the AZ store you called probably doesn't know about the typo. Happy shopping!

Okay here is my dilemma. The store i was going to had the doubles last time, $@ and under. I just looked at their flyer and it says under .75 will be doubled.

#1 I find it VERY strange one store in New York state would be doing doubles twice in a row?
#2 I called the store, she had no clue of course. Manager gets on and says yes they are doubled up to .75...there was a misprint. So I said oh so you ARE doubling the $2, she said no .75. So I said WHAT WAS THE MISPRINT then?? She said I don't know, I just know there was a misprint. OMG!!

So #3 I called corporate customer service, his says that store isn't participating at all?? I told him I have the flyer in my hand and what it says.

SO I am completely clueless!

Like Danielle, here's what happened:

I called Kmart Cust Svc and she said the stores I go to (in SE Wisconsin) do not participate. The red box thing in the ad for the double coupons ad is not showing on her screen when she pulled them up.

So I called the stores and they told me yes they are doubling starting on Sunday but only up to 75 cents.

So I'm confused now. Which areas' circulars were actually misprinted?

i just called our tolleson arizona store and they are doubling coupons up to 2.00!!! so i will be there bright and early

All the Kansas City stores are doubling up to $2.00 even though the ad says $0.75. There are no triples. According to KMart Customer Service, the ad is a misprint because it says $0.75 max coupon for doubles. :-)

anon, do you live in tolleson? i will be there bright and early sunday as well. maybe i'll see you..hehehe

O.K. I thought I better call my actual store (Ellisville) in St.Louis to make sure they were up with the mistake eventhough I had talked to this Roseanne at corporate today. The manager,Kathy, said no that it is only up to .75 so I called corporate again and talked to a Raquel she said she would call my local store b/c she had a memo that said the area stores would receive telling them to download enabling them to accept up to and including $2.00 max. limit. She put me on hold whi;e she called my store and talked to Kathy and she said she would not follow what Raquel was saying. Raquel said I am corporate and this is the policy. Finally, Kathy said she will talk to store manager who had just left. So who knows now. Raquel said she thinks it will be worked out by Sunday. Hopefully, so.

My local Kmart (Grand Rapids, MI) told me there was an error and they are doubling up to $2 but that they weren't accepting internet printed coupons. I called corporate to inquire on this and they said all Kmarts accept internet printed coupons and they were wrong. Corporate called my store to make sure they would allow these coupons.
