Is Your Kmart Participating in Doubles?

It's Thursday, which means you should be able to check the Kmart ad online and see if in fact your store is participating in doubles! Even if you've already been told your store is not, I would still recommend checking the ad.

Oh and if you can believe it Jacksonville, NC is actually NOT participating again!:( I guess the customer service rep I spoke with didn't have a clue what she was talking about!

Nope... mine's not offering it either. :-(

Sharon said...

umm... but seriously... I just checked 20 different stores.. none participating. So I started putting in random towns to check and none of them are participating either. Are we sure the ad is accurate?

Fargo, ND & Moorhead,MN are.

Florence, KY IS Participating!!! :-)

Maybe the ads are wrong!!:)you can always hope!

Bargain Noble said...

Same here! The rep said that we were participating, but the ad states otherwise! Who have they got answering the phones over there anyways??

Dan & Rachel Baker said...

I check my surrounding Kmart ads & none of them are participating!!! Bummer!!! :(

molly said...

My ad here in Michigan shows the $2 manu doubling picture- but I think I will call to make sure!

Rachel said...

Warsaw, IN is... I don't normally go to that one.. but it is only a half hour away... so I will definitely make the drive...

Lindsay M. said...

Wayne, PA is doubling. They just closed the 2 closer Kmarts this week.

I'm sorry your store isn't hip...you sounded so excited yesterday!

Stephanie said...

I called cust. serv. again. She told me it did not matter if our ad said double coupons on it. All stores in MO are participating. So, don't bother with checking your ad, just call CS.

EvilStepmommy29 said...

Anyone have access to a $5 off $50 coupon good for next week? That really helps!!! Thanks!

Heather said...

I'm pretty ticked. I emailed KMart and got an email back saying ALL South Carolina stores were participating. However, the circular for my store doesn't indicate doubles. Which am I supposed to trust?

Anonymous said...

Is the $5 off $50 before or after coupons?

Anonymous said...

Called my store in GR, MI and they are participating. I would call the store directly.

Adriana said...

I was also told yes, and the ads don't show double coupons. But some people have reported the same thing, and when they called their store, they said there would be ads in store, and that yes they were doubling. So, try calling your store.

Here is the link to the $5 off $50 q. Please read the fine print because w/ their wording, I am not sure if it only applies after q's.

Stacy said...

mine isnt either, and customer service told me they were what in the world?

Jen Pix said...

I got an e-mail from corporate a couple days ago saying all MN stores were participating, but after looking today it's not in the ad. So I called my local store and they said they are often left in the dark until Saturday/Sunday and they don't always advertise it in the flier. She suggested I call back Saturday/Sunday to find out for sure.

Kim said...

hip...I'm also in Jax, NC....called the store and the person who answered the phone didn't have any idea if they were participating or not?? They don't seem too well informed at corporate, either...ppl telling me different things. Maybe we should just try it out for 1 item, and see what happens?

Kim said...

The lady I called said they wouldn't know for sure until Sunday.

Stacy said...

thats stinks to have to wait till sunday, sunday is when it starts we hvae to have time to prepare our coupons :) ugh kmart!!!

Anonymous said...

Lynchburg, VA is not. whats new, they haven't the last few times!

Anonymous said...

where on the ad does it say, if it does say?

Amy said...

My local store in Milford, Ohio is participating! Cincinnati area! YAY!

Jaden Paige said...

Mine either. Corporate told me my store would be, but it doesn't look like it. BOO HISS!

Maggie in MA said...

According to the on-line flyers for my area my stores are NOT participating. However, I have e-mailed and called customer service both of which told me that ALL stores in Massachusetts ARE participating. I would call customer service if your flyer isn't showing the deal. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Mine in Salisbury, NC is! The best way to confirm if your store is doing doubles or not is to call Kmart corporate office.

Autumn said...

My ad did not show the double either, but I am going to hold out hope since corporate said yes we are in Utah. I will call the store this weekend to double check. **fingers crossed**

Danielle said...

I am in NY and from my source, all NY's were to be included this time, however the one 2 miles from my house does not state it on the flyer! The Kmart that ALWAYS doubles is of course again...but this one is 40 minutes away. We will see, I will be a Kmart right down the road at exactly 9am Sunday morning to do a "test". If it works, what an awesome week this will be ;)

barrellofmonkeys said...

Try calling customer service again. My ads did not show the double coupons on it, but I was told monday that ALL UTAH locations were participating. So I called again this morning and they said they ARE participating, but for some reason they are not in the ads. So yours is most likely still participating!!

Please please please tell me you'll be posting deals.

How does the doubling work? Do you have to have a specific coupon to go along with your 10 for it to work?

cmricha2 said...

Raleigh, NC is not participating either. Stupid ole KMart....

:(

I was so hopping for some free Lysol spray.

Does anyone know if the save $5 on $50 Kmart coupon is still available?

Kat said...

I called and they told me this over the phone. When I checked I did not see the advertisement. I then emailed them to ask directly (so I can bring this to the store with me) and here is my response.

Dear Pamela,


Thank you for contacting Sears Holdings Corporation regarding our Double Coupon Event. Unless otherwise specified, here is our Internet Print at Home Coupon policy. Kmart has the right to accept or not accept this type of coupon during their Double Coupon Event.



Kmart's Print-at-Home Internet Coupon Acceptance Policy

Effective March 1, 2009, Kmart will accept industry-standard, secure print-at-home coupons. This will provide additional benefits and incentives to our customers to help them save their money at Kmart.

Due to the continuing shift in utilizing online facilities, allowing the redemption of print at home coupons is becoming a larger more important aspect to the budget wise customer. But there is a significant risk in fraudulent alerted coupons. It is critical that the following guidelines be understood and followed to identify coupons that will not be accepted by the Kmart register operators.



Kmart can only accept print-at-home coupons if they scan properly at checkout. Legitimate printable coupons are delivered using special software designed to print a properly rendered barcode on the coupon and limit the number of coupons printed. If the coupon dos not scan properly it cannot be accepted

Kmart will not accept coupons for more than about 75% of a product's value. For example, a $2 off coupon for a product that sells for $2.25 is unlikely to be legitimate. If there are exceptions, Kmart is usually provided advance notice by the manufacturer.

Coupons will be rejected if they appear distorted or blurry, altered in any way, or are obvious duplicates.


Kmart will not accept "FREE product" (no purchase required) print-at-home coupons. It is currently an industry practice not to produce print-at-home manufacturer's coupons for free product. Buy-one-get-one-free coupons and other values that have a purchase requirement are acceptable.





We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced, regarding this Double Coupon Event, and the coupons that we are accepting, or not accepting.


Sincerely,

I found the coupon for $5 off $50. It expires on 6/6/09...the day before the sale starts. I had to sign up for their e-mails and it was e-mailed to me today. It's the same coupon I'd used for past sales that others had posted.

One of my blog readers sent me this email she got in response to her question of double coupons:

Limit 10? The number keeps getting smaller and smaller. and my Kmart does follow that limit. Bummer, I guess I will be going to Kmart everyday...lol

KinomiyaMichiru said...

The BigK-Mart in Corinth,MS never participates in double coupons.

I am in NC and emailed Kmart. I got this reply below that all NC stores are included. However when I called a store, they told me no. I guess I will and I printed down my email to take with me.

Even after I sent an email to Customer Service and was told that ALL stores in Iowa are participating, my local said. no. I called corporate, and they said the only stores in Iowa that are participating are in Davenport. Hopefully they will get their act together next time. FRUSTRATING!

Anonymous said...

Orem, UT is not participating. When I called them they said that they were not "selected" to participate... : (

Mrs. Spez said...

I emailed corportate who said, according to their records, all stores expect those listed were participating. I spent an hour and half tracking down the deals and choosing the 10 best. When I checked out, NO DOUBLING. The cashier said she couldn't do anything, that if they were doubling, the computer would take it off. I send corporte a reply to their email asking for a gift card for the amount of the doubling. It's only $7.50, but I spent an hour and half!!!
