Kmart Coupon Double Deals 7/5-7/11

Since I'm on vacation the Kmart Double Deals list won't be as extensive as usual. On a positive note, though, I'm still listing lots of FREE deals and other fantastic buys! You can also check out my previous Kmart Double deals list here. Lots of those deals will still be valid for the upcoming Kmart doubles.

Kmart Super Double Coupon Rules:

You can double up to and including coupons with a $2 value. That means that a $2 coupon will be doubled up to $4, a $1 coupon will be doubled up to $2. However, a $3 coupon will NOT be doubled at all!

There is a limit of 4 like coupons being doubled in one transaction.

You can only double up to 10 coupons per day when you have $25 or more in purchases. This is before any manufacturer coupons are used, so it should be easy to get up to the $25 amount.

Kmart also does NOT give coupon overage. For example, if you buy a product that is $2.50 and use a $2 coupon. The coupon will deduct $2 and the doubled amount will be .50, so you'll get the item FREE--you just won't make money.

on the huggies deal, you say to use 5 $2 coupons, but i thought we can only use 4 like coupons???

Anonymous said...

thanks collin!! enjoy your vacation!!

Anonymous said...

So Im confused, you are only allowed 4 coupons to be doubled per transaction but in order to get them doubled in the first place you have to spend 25.00? so if you did seperate transactions you have to spend 25.00 each transaction to get the coupons doubled??

Mary Beth said...

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! And a huge thank you to our service men and women!!!

Anonymous -- you are allowed up to 10 doubled coupons per transaction, only 4 of which can be exactly the same coupon. So, for instance, if you have 10 Reynolds Wrap $1/1 coupons, only 4 of them would double, the rest would just be the regular amount, so you should use only 4 of those, and the rest should be other coupons to get the full benefit of doubling.

As far as the $25, it sounds as though you have to buy at least $25 worth of purchases, but this can be BEFORE the coupons, so you will get your purchases for less after they're deducted. Just make sure you wait to hand over your coupons until after they've totaled up you whole order, so that the register hits the $25 mark.

* * * * *

(However, if you plan to use the $5 toy coupon on the Pictureka deal, that coupon still looks as though you need to spend $25 AFTER all other coupons have been deducted to be able to use the Kmart coupon, so it would be good to combine this deal with your double coupon deals to get well above the $25 level. It's a shame when you have to have a calculator and a PhD in math to double 10 coupons! Not that I have to worry about it -- Kmart avoids doing double coupons in my area. Shucks!)

Anonymous said...

Is it 10 coupons doubled or 10 coupons total. I mean, if I use the 5 dollar pictura coupons, would that count toward the 10 coupons. Or no...since the 5 is not doubled?

Anonymous said...

If your cashier doesn't object, the register will double an unlimited amount of the same coupon. It will not automatically stop doubling the same coupon after 4. You should be okay with 5.

Anonymous said...

Call your local Kmart & ask how many coupons they are taking. Last month I get an email from corporate saying only 10 coupons, but our kmart was still accepting the 25.

Anonymous said...

so, if i have 2 huggies coupons from the newspaper and 2 from the internet are those considered the same coupons?

Michelle said...

I tried to get the pictureka game and a toy and my total came to $22 and they would not let me use the $5 coupon. So I did not buy anything. Anyone else have this problem? They said they all had to sign papers in regard to coupons and if they violated it they would get fined. I think Kmart has lost their minds. I could not use a Kmart toy coupon on toys??

Anu said...

Does anyone know if there is going to be a pampers cantalina offer going on this week? Thanks.

Michelle said...

Hi! A while back there was a $2 Huggies coupon from a scanned ToysRUS (I think) brochure here. Hip2Save, or anyone, do you know what I'm talking about and is that a good coupon to use for the Huggies deal? I printed a few but have looked and don't see it any longer. Thanks so much!

BaseballMom said...

I was able to get 4 Pictureka games for $1.69. My K-Mart had no problem taking the $5/20 and my 4 $5 cpns. I'm looking forward to better deals tommorrow!!

Are the Kmarts in Boise doing doubles this week???

yay, just called my kmart in VA...they are taking 25 coupons instead of just 10!!! They did that last month too!

ardena said...

Where in VA are they having the double coupons? It's been so long, I thought we (VA's) were being treated like outcasts.
Thanks, Ardena, Ridgeway, VA

They emailed me and said Norfolk, Va Beach, and Tabb aka Yorktown.

ardena said...

How were you so lucky to get them to e-mail you? I've even sent them an e-mail about having double coupons here - but heard nothing. We've only had them here once. I'm on the opposite end of the state from you.
Thanks, Ardena

hi I just wanted to let you all know that if you wanted to take advantage of the pictureka deal at KMart and you needed a 3rd or 4th coupon (after the 2 coupons listed for print at coupons.com), you can got here and print a bricks coupon 2x also. http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qgedejr45223872&bt=wg&o=56574&c=FG&p=MUIps0a3 and don't forget to see the $5 off 20 toy deal scenario that she has posted as well!

The Knorr pasta/rice coupon is 60c off 2. There is also a 75c off 2 and a $1 off 3.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site!!! I saved $50 at kmart, only spent $3!!! Thanks Collin!!!

Anonymous said...

Anon-would love to hear what you bought. Anyone have any sites for good Kmart scenarios?

Anonymous said...

Basically everything I got was off of Collin's list. I had 3 & 4 of the same coupon, so I used those. My Kmart takes 25 coupons, not 10. So I basically took Collins list & did most of the things that would be FREE.

CJ said...

My Kmart has a more limited selection and higher prices than most stores. My total before coups was $32.75 and after coups was $10.46. Not my best Kmart trip but 68% savings ain't bad!

Jennifer said...

My kmart was not too busy this morning like I had anticipated it to be. I only used 10 coupons and saved 50%. I paid 12.97, but was overcharged for the cereals. I am going to go back and see if I can get the price adjusted. I am not sure on the return policy since this is doubles week. Darn thing is that I gave them q's and I won't be able to get them back.

browneyez said...

Thank you for posting such great deals. However, I must share my horror story. I just came back from K-mart, had lots of coupons. But much to my surprise, but the cashier starting deducting my coupons, they weren't doubling. When I mentioned this, her response was that's only Super K-mart, who's doubling this week...

Donnette said...

Just got back from my 1st Chillicothe, OHIO Super Kmart shop. Plenty of mismarked prices. Had to go back to the service counter twice. They weren't nice about changing the original $4.69 on the bonus Arm & Hammer Tooth Paste (20% Free for price of the 6oz) instead of 2/5.00. They insisted the bonus toothpatse was at the oringal price. An didn't read my sale ad properly, instead of Super double up to and including, they are only double up to $2.00, so my 2.00 coupons were just $2.00. I also only had my 10 coupons/trip and I asked the cashier he forgot one but he went ahead and cashed me out without looking and then told me to go to the service counter to settle.

BAD BAD SHOP

Michelle said...

Jennifer,
I had to return something and they gave me the price of the item without the coupon. So, even if you have to return the cereal then you should be ok.

On a side note Kmart and I have broken up. I had a horrible problem with the diaper deal and had to leave empty handed. The manager was horrible and their Catalina machines were not working. He could not guarantee I would get my catalina. I wanted to get my money and coupons back and he did not want to and argued with me for about 15 mins. I was so exasperated from the idiot cashier and him that I started to cry. I don't usually do that but it just hit me all of a sudden. I then called customer service from the desk there while I checked out. They were then really nice since I was on the phone with customer care. One of the associates said as I left "take your coupons somewhere else". They said I should hear from the district manager within 48 hrs. Anyway, I do not know if I can avoid all of the deals but I will not go back to Kmart for awhile. To top it all off I had to leave all of my items and then I forgot my coupons in the cart and had to return to get the coupons. I felt really really terrible. WOW! I guess I was kinda long-winded today but I had to share with someone!

Shopping Frugal said...

Kmart allowed me to use more then 10 coupons, and the double coupon signs posted said "limit of 75" there were also a few Kmart Savings Coupons (tear pads) around so I would able to stack those which helped lower a few prices.

Anonymous said...

To Michelle,
I'm so sorry that you had such a terrible experience at K-Mart. They had no right to treat you like that. I've gone to K-Mart for double couponing several times, and the majority of the cashiers have been great. During one visit, however, two of my coupons didn't double, so I went to the customer service counter. The lady there was not nice at all. She acted like I was a big annoyance, and she said, "I hate double coupons!" But I decided I was not going to let one bad apple keep me from saving a ton of money!
So don't give up, Michelle. Hopefully the district manager will provide some customer service training for your store!

Anon,

Have you tried going to another Kmart. I had a similar horrible experience with the diaper deal at a Kmart. It was taking them forever to resolve and time was running out for me to get the kids from the sitter. In the end, I asked for my money back and they SLOWLY did that.

I took my coupons to another Kmart and it was a very nice experience.

Just a thought.

my kmart couldn't give me the catalina coupons either! I went in for $50 in diapers, carefully following all the coupons directions, but no catalina deal at check out. and the cashier had no reason why--she never heard of it. then, i went to customer service, and she said i couldn't use coupons and the catalina deal both--either one or the other. i said, i did it last double coupon time! she just stared and me and told me it didn't work. i said fine, you should make that clear on the signage, please return all my purchases. it took me one hour in kmart! they couldn't figure out how to undouble the coupons, so it was telling them to refund me more than i paid. my husband was in the car with the kids and crying baby. he sent my daughter in 2x to check on me. finally, they called a manager at home, and she said just give me cash, she would work on it later. WHAT IN THE WORLD! getting ready to find a # to call to see if i can find an intelligent person to tell me what is happening!

Michelle said...

Hi,
I did the diaper deal this time at the same KMart it did NOT work at last time we had doubles. I was given the song and dance about using coupons too, then, and I returned everything. They were not happy. This time, I read on Coupon Clippin' Mama, that if you check out at the service desk, your catalina will NOT print. Last time when it didn't work, that's where I checked out. I tried again today, making sure that I used a regular cash register, and it worked like a charm, even with all my coupons. Give it another shot!

Anonymous said...

I did great at Kmart today. I spent $26.15 for $120.38 worth of merchandise. That's a savings of 78%. Thanks for all the coupon match ups!

Lisa said...

I had a great trip to Kmart tonight. There was no one there, I think I saw three other shoppers the entire time I was in the store. They were fully stocked except for A1 steak sauce and Wisk laundry detergent. My cashier was very friendly and there was no coupon limit. My total was over $60 before coupons and $6.08 after coupons, plus I got a $7 off my next purchase cat.

nicole ohio said...

I went today and used so many q's the cashier didnt care. My total before q's $96.00 after q's $21.54. I am going back later this week to use more $2 Q's. Thaks Collin!!

Anonymous said...

All of the cereal coupons state that they are not to be doubled or tripled. Save yourself some ink.

Anonymous said...

I spent $8 today from the original total of $36.00. Could only use 10 coupons.
They also were not very well stocked.

Ana said...

I had a problem with the cereal internet coupons not doubling at Ralphs last week; has Kmart cut these out too?

Trish said...

I was able to use the buy one get one free panteen from the 7/5 pg with the $2 off from the 7/5 pg. I have 4 meaning I got 8 bottle of panteen for free. But they were poorly stocked. The only thing is that they were taking the coupons off as she scanned the item so I wasn't able to use the $5 off $50. Still I paid $14.76 for about $52 worth of stuff. Going back today for more!

If you buy a Pantene Pro-V product, don't forget about their two times the price of the item guarantee. Call 1-800-974-9967 for all the details.

m,j said...

did any one elses Kmart require a $25 purchase on GROCERY/DRUG items prior to doubling???

I asked about cleaning supplies counting toward the $25 and was told no- just food and drug store items...

I drove to PA to go to Kmart and walked out with NOTHNG!! They barely even have groceries in the store to spend $25 on...their prices were TOO HIGH, Stock very low- not worth it to me.

Wendy said...

My K-mart in Ohio will only double q's after a $25 purchase in grocery/drugs. I am not even going to bother going!

Jami STL said...

About the "Diapers" deal. Look at the sign closely, I was fooled by this too, it is not for all huggies products, not for diapers, only for the pull-ups, goodnights, and little swimmers, you only know this from it saying "select huggies products" and having those three icons on the sign, very confusing, so maybe some of the trouble people are having is from trying to use the deal on diapers? That's what I did....and then returned them all. Got other good deals, but they were out of many of the things I went in for and not sure if the searching with toddler in tow was worth the time and effort to justify the savings. Not sure if I'll participate next time or not, I'll be watching comments and decide if anyone is enjoying K-mart or not.

Michelle said...

I have been enjoying Kmart doubles this time! Last time was a complete fiasco, but I've added up 5 reciepts so far and have saved over 80% - paid $41 for over $212 worth of goodies including 8 bags of diapers/pull ups and 1 swimmies. I have done the diaper deal with a combo of all the different diapers and it's worked every time. I make sure to check out through a regular cash lane. I might try to come up with another scenario to use and go back yet again... :-) Proctor and Gamble has a catalina deal now that I may try out.

Katrina said...

Just and FYI....I was told by another couponer here here in my town that the $5 off $50 WILL work if they take your coupons as the scan the items. She said the cashiers that have done that to her have told her she could not use it but she made them scan it and it worked. I would suggest giving it a try. Also mine is not sticking with the "only 10" they are allowing us to use as many coupons as we want in a single transaction. YAY!!

Anonymous said...

FYI! I live in Cape Girardeau, MO and my KMart did not advertise double coupons but I was in there picking up a few school supplies that were on sale and the lady in front of me was coupon shopping and they doubled hers. So when I checked out I asked the cashier and she said they were setup to double coupons but they were not to advertise it. So even if you think you local KMart does not advertise double coupons call and ask. I think this is kinda sneaky but I came home and got coupons ready to go back tomorrow night.

Anonymous said...

I had no problems tonight at K-mart. Some items were out of stock and some of the prices were different here. I already know my K-Mart grocery section is limited but we got great deals. Did the Pull Up Deal without a hitch! I love teen male cashiers..he didn't even look a the coupons :)

Anonymous said...

On the Huggies diaper deal, I haven't tried it because I thought it was just for Pull-ups, but Michelle writes that she used "diapers". Michelle--or anyone--can you confirm that you used "snug and dry" or "natural fit" diapers. I hate catalina deals, but do need a great diaper deal. Kelly

Kelly said...

Went to KMart today for my 2nd trip. Did better, but had a bad cashier experience. I had 10 coupons to be doubled, a free item coupon, and a $5 off coupon. She said I could only use 10 TOTAL coupons. I tried explaining that it's 10 that double, not 10 total. But no, she wouldn't budge. She didn't let me to the pantene deal either. And my olay coupon would'nt go through and she said that I couldn't use it then. IDK why though. Anyways, she had to call for help and they spent 20 mins working on it. They were very mean (pissy) and made me feel bad for using coupons. She kept saying "I HATE double coupons" and the people behind me were stomping their feet and being annoyed with the wait. I just felt bad. I'm 21 and putting aside for school. I still feel a little embarassed. I wanted to go back Thurs, but am worried that will be remember me and treat me different. What do you guys think?

Anonymous said...

I have done 5 Kmart trips and you just have to get your total above $25.00 before your coupons. There is not a requirement to purchase anything else. My one order came to 2.37 OOP after qpons.

Michelle said...

Kelly,
I have successfully done the diaper deal with many combos of Little Movers, Overnights, and Pullups. I also did it unsuccessfully last time around though, I think b/c I checked out at the service desk. When that happened, I returned them all, much to their dismay. HTH! :-)

Anonymous said...

Can someone PLEASE explain the "having to purchase $25 worth of items before coupons"...I'm confused. My local K-Mart is not very friendly and it will be my 1st double coupon experience so I don't want to go in totally clueless. =o)
Would you always want/need to use the $5 off $50 coupon?
If you purchase over $25 are you unable to use coupons?
How do you know how to purchase exactly $25 worth of groceries in order to get your total down enough with the correct coupons?

I'm sorry, I'm just really confused.

Thanks,
Ginger

Kelly,
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience using double coupons. You might want to make a call to the district office and let them know about the poor customer service you received. Many businesses are struggling to make a go of it in today's economy, and they need to know if rude employees are driving customers away!

Michelle said...

Ok Ginger,
I have done this like 15 times now. But I am no expert but my local Kmart does say "coupon lady" when I walk in. LOL! Anyway, they put all of these things out there this time and I am not sure why. I did the diaper deal buying 5 packs of diapers and the wipes, there were no grocery or drugstore items in that and the coupons doubled. I did buy the Huggies Natural diapers and it worked today FYI. The Cat printed before I paid so this made me feel more comfortable about doing it since the manager at the other Kmart was such a Douche. Anyway, do not worry anon it will work. Yes you will want to use the 5 off 50. The employees are very aware of this reward. You can also look at the screen to make sure your coupons are doubling. When I go through will all of my crap some coupons you have to pick on the screen so I watch and tell them which one. I am a pretty honest couponer. I will not deny that I have gotten some better than I should have deals, but I do not go out of my way to do this. Anyway today I bought 10 bottles of Starbucks, some baby wash, a-1, some dove deoderant, a few other things I cannot remember. My total was like $76 and when I left it was like $10. So I think they may or may not be forcing you to spend at least $25. I have never spent less than $50 before coupons with Kmart doubles. HTH!! Sorry everyone for being so long-winded.

MM said...

Kelly,
Do not despair. They are just jealous for your deals. Women cashiers are just that way. I do not have any boys that work at my Kmart and sometimes I just have to leave in the middle of a transaction. I am not obligated to complete the transaction and pay if I don't want to. I would totally go back. Go to a different cashier. Try, try, try again and it is a very admirable thing that you are doing putting aside for school. Do not let some angry cashier make you run and hide. That is what they want. Let them know they don't scare you. When they argue with you try my new tatic just stare and blink. It gets pretty awkward and they usually just assume you are deaf or something and deal with it. I no longer argue. I have had several problems but more often than not it is ok. I just leave if they act rediculous. Kmart is not just doubling 10, btw. Depends on your cashier, I guess.

I had a convo at the service desk about the "10" coupon limit. I asked her what about a BOGO or a coupon that would not double aka any over 2.00, and she really couldnt tell me straight out an answer. The sign says 10 coupon limit, excludes BOGO..etc..and I showed her that. I think sometimes asking these almost simple questions stump people. I don't think that we should have to include a Kmart coupon in part of our 10.

I went in an did the diaper deal and I only had 6 coupons plus my 5 off 50 and the cashier messed up on a 2.00 coupon and chose the item that was 2.99...making me lose out on a 1.00. I called it to her attention and she thought she fixed it, but after leaving it was still wrong. I am tired of having to basically check out my order myself and they are still getting it wrong with just 10 coupons!

I hate to complain, but I just don't understand why it is so hard to get this stuff right.

Kelly....don't ever feel bad for using coupons..I never apologize to cashiers or other rude customers. I look at it as the cashiers have to be there and the customers can go into another line. No one else is going to buy our stuff for us, and until then they can shove it! :)

o.k...I'm so frustrated right now. We try and "save" with coupons so then why do stores have to make it so difficult?
So I called my local super K-mart a few mins. ago...she said they were doing the double coupons (ends tomorrow), they would take up to 25 coupons but you had to spend $25 AFTER coupons...

This is my frustration...why don't they know the rules??? It seems that, from people on here, that it's BEFORE coupons...but then if I go all the way there (the closest K-mart to me is about 35 mins. away) and I walk out without anything b/c they are mistaken about the rules that's going to make me really MAD!

Thanks,
Ginger

They are wrong. You do not have to spend $25 after coupons. They are morons. I am sorry but some people. Anyway don't ask any questions and go there and see what happens. I find that asking too many questions sometimes it backfires! Anyway, good luck, go buy what you wanted to and if it does not go your way then just walk out without buying anything. Ginger, I am sure you will do fine!!

Thank you guys so much for your help, and your nice comments. They made me feel so much better. Thank you. I love the new idea-stare and blink. So funny! I'm going to Kmart tomorrow with my mom, and I'll see how it goes. Hopefully that mean cashier and the higher up lady are not there!

If anyone hasn't figured it out yet here are a few other deals I've gotten this week:

$1 off Listerine (coupons.com) - in the fine print it says you can use it on Reach floss. They are about $1.49 - $1.69 at my store so that = FREE

$2 off Listerine (coupons.com) - same fine print, and it says that you can use it on reach toothbrushes. There were 'buy 1 get 1 free' packs priced at $3.69 so again that = FREE

Ponds Cleansing Towelettes (15ct) are on sale for $3 and on the ponds site you can print a $1.50 off coupon (http://www.ponds.com/). It is a bricks link, but I was having issues printing it. It was stuck at the 'please wait' screen. I had one from before.

In St Louis and the Manchester Rd Kmart gave me song and dance about not printing the Catalina for the diaper deal b/c Huggies weren't included---just pull ups, etc. However, the large HUGGIES on the sign is the logo for that brand line, and it should count.

Also, they told me that the $50 total had to be after coupons, not before. So basically the scenario as written won't work. I went to customer service twice and they gave me gift cards for the catalina values, but not before treating me like a moron

Anon in St. Louis---

I did the same diaper deal that everyone else did and after she rang up my items which were 5 packs of diapers and 1 package of wipes, the coupon printed right away. That was even before I checked out with coupons. I did this the same was last double coupons, so I can't understand why so many people are not getting their's to print out.

Samantha said...

I've done the diaper deal twice so far (using regular huggies diapers) with no issues with the Catalina. I used the $2 coupon from the Graco pdf. But my cashier would only let me use 4 of them, so I had to use another $1.50 off coupon I had from a home mailer.

The first time I got the deal, I bought 3 packs of diapers, and then mixed my purchase with other participating brands.

With the help of these Catalina offers I'm pretty sure my son will be set with diapers!!

Michelle said...

5 Regular huggies or the Natural huggies and one wipes does work. Please try again. I would hate for you to lose out. The coupon prints from the Catalina machine BEFORE you pay not like WG's! So if it does not print do not pay. It is $50 before coupons. The people at Kmart do not know, they just spectulate.

Samantha said...

I read on another site that BOGO coupons are doubling so you can end up getting 2 free items. Anyone know anything about this?!?! It would be awesome to make another trip out there with some of my bogo coupons!

Michelle said...

Also from my experience, the catalina will NOT print if you check out at the service desk! Make sure you check out at a REGULAR cash register. I have no idea why that is, but I've done the diaper deal both ways and it only worked at a regular cash register. THT!

Kelly said...

Samantha-I don't think BOGOs double twice. They didn't at mine, I wasn't even allowed to use any! But this might just be at my KMart.

I had a better KMart experience today with my mom. Nicer cashier this time, but the mean one was there and was glaring at me the whole time!!!

I went in today and did the Huggies deal twice. Yes, Huggies diapers count! The Catalina used to print out when the checker hit total, before scanning your coupons. It has been fixed so that it prints when the transaction is complete. This was so a cashier couldn't ring up $50 worth of stuff, grab a $14 catalina and then void the transaction out. I was sort of worried when my cat didn't print when she hit total and she went and asked someone, who said I probably didn't have the right items. I told her I'd done it before. Then, fortunately, my favorite cashier walked by and I asked her what was up. She told me about the change. So I finished my transaction and it printed out - no problems! Maybe this has been the problem with some people here - are you just expecting it when they hit total and not completing the transaction?

Kate said...

Oh, and coupons don't affect the cat at all. I paid $23 OOP and got the $14 cat.

Kate,
I think you said you were from Wichita at one point. No, I am not a stalker, I think I remember your picture. If so what Kmart are you going to? West or South? I totally freaked and cancelled a transaction the other day there.
Thanks!!
