K-Mart is doubling coupons again at select stores.   It is reported that EVERY K-Mart in GA and SC are participating and many others around the nation.   The limit has changed this go round to 10 coupons!

Get a $5 off $50 Kmart coupon!

A few rules:

  1. 10 coupons per person per day.
  2. Can only buy 4 of the same item in each transaction.

Mercedes at Common Sense with Money also has a list of deals up.

Here are some tips to make this easier. I can’t say you’ll leave unfrustrated but try these to help…
1. Make your transactions small (like less than 10 items ea).
2. Make a list as you shop of prices and what the total should be.
3. Watch each coupon as they scan it.
4. Only plan to use coupons that would not double at other stores. K Mart prices are high and will not beat B1G1 grocery sale prices.

A Few Deals I see:

A.1. Steak Sauce $4.49
-$2 off A.1. printable (makes it .49 cents)

Del Monte Fruit Chillers $1.99 ea
-$1 off Fruit Chillers printable(makes it FREE)

General Mills Cereals $2 ea
-$1 off Cheerios printable (IE) or printable (FF)

    • JEB

      The ad says Electrasol tabs are BOGO. Could you use 2 coupons?

    • Amy

      I had heard a rumor that kmart doesn’t accept Internet coupons. Is that true?? I’ve done the double coupons a few times at kmart, but didn’t try to use internet coupons. Thanks!! I love this site!!!!

    • Amy

      The ad says BOGO’s are excluded. :(

    • Jen

      I went today to the K-mart on Bush River in Columbia, and did not get doubles. I only had internet coupons, so I’m not sure if that made a difference, but it seems that all K-marts in SC are not actually participating. Also, I called the K-mart on St. Andrews yesterday and they told me they were not participating. If anyone knows differently, please let us know!

    • Laney

      My GA ads doesn’t say anything about doubles.

    • Tonya

      hi! i called the Buford GA Kmart and they say ‘they didnt get a corporate email so they are not participating.’ she had to put me on hold for awhile to find this out, so i get the impression that the employees are not going to be very familiar with this. i was thinking of calling their corporate office tomorrow to find out if there was a store close to me in GA that is participating. do you have any ideas on how else i can find this out? thanks, tonys

    • AngelathecouponNERD

      Amy – I have used internet printables at KMart in Columbia SC without any trouble.
      Too bad they are not doubling here! Booo

    • NO to ROck Hill, SC KMART doubling.

    • Katherine

      I called the Kmart in Hiram, GA and was told they are NOT doubling coupons. The lady who answered the store said it was misinformation and only Florida Kmarts are doubling coupons.

    • Katherine

      oops I guess I should say answered the phone!! Ha! HA! HA

    • Nicole

      The Hiram store rarely does this.

    • Hope

      Columbus, Ga. stores are not participating in the doubles.

    • momof2

      The stores in Greenville, SC are NOT doubling coupons. I called & was told no.

    • Jennifer

      momof2-Do you know if any of the greater Greenville area stores are doubling? I know that a while back the Berea store doubled when others didn’t.

    • joy

      I called the PTC and Carrollton GA stores last week and they said that they would not be doubling.

    • Christie

      Katherine-
      I too called the Hiram GA store! She told me the same as you and that they “don’t do that anymore” in GA. I’m ready to find a store around us that doubles again!

    • .Jennifer

      I complained (pitched a hissy fit) earlier today and here is the email that I just got:

      Dear Customer,

Each event is subject to change as new results are tracked and measured.
      By sharing your concerns, you have enabled us to address the issues and provide feedback to the appropriate person. Truly, your remarks provide forthright feedback that will enable Sears to achieve excellence in everything we do.

      Well that just makes everything better… NOT.

      If you want to email them and let them know that you have noticed a lack of double coupon events in your area then I encourage you to email them at: help@customerservice.kmart.com

    • Holly

      Does this mean you can use a $2 coupon and double it to make $4 off?

    • Jess

      The Hiram, GA KMart is outdated and NASTY! Double coupons isn’t enough to lure me into that dump lol

    • Cindy

      Norfolk VA super K. Doubles with no limits and they take internet coupons.
      No problems, used 25 coupons.

    • lynn

      yes holly it does happy shopping

    • Cherish

      I called the Fort Oglethorpe, GA KMart this morning and they told me that they were not doubling coupons. I saw this post and called back this evening and was told that they are doubling coupons. You can use 25 coupons per transaction, but they DO NOT double internet coupons.

    • I am so sorry that some of you are having a hard time at Kmart. They can be really lame about the Super Double Events. It doesn’t pay to get upset…there will always be more good deals there or somewhere else.

      I always go to the service desk to check and see if they will accept my IP coupons and any other issues/ questions I might have BEFORE I start shopping. Then there are no surprises and I haven’t wasted my time or theirs.

      In our area, in the past,there have been some people who have tried to defraud Kmart with fake-copied coupons,so Kmart has lost money and the stores can be very suspicious and leery of couponers. If you are honest in all your dealings, this is especially hard to accept.

      It’s too bad that honest couponers are lumped together with the dishonest ones.

      Good luck with all your shopping this week and take Jenny’s advice at the top of the post…she’s the best !

    • mumof1boy

      Guys, I love couponing just as much as the next person but if something is not available in my area I suck it up & move on. I don’t think that by “pitching a hissy fit” is going to solve anything. It’s like I tell my toddler “you will not get anything by acting that way”. I agree that it is frustrating when I miss out on a good deal but sometimes you have to say Oh well.

    • I went today to the Cleveland, TN K-Mart and got several freebies including Keebler Rainbow Chip cookies, Oust, Lysol Neutra Air, Glade, Kraft BBQ sauce, and NYC makeup. I posted a picture and breakdown of my trip here: http://www.funandfrugal.com/2009/06/k-mart-is-doubling-coupons-this-week/

    • Mina

      LOL KMart really messed this one up! They told people all over the country that all stores in their state were participating, even though they weren’t.

      Maybe they’ve forgotten to turn their calendar for a few months. This is JUNE, not April 1st.

    • Esther

      I have done double coupons at the Hiram store in November/December 2008, I got great deals. Also they have really improved the appearance of the store quite a bit, I go for two reasons, double coupons, and to pay my Sears bill.

    • It says per person per day, however if you bring someone with you who is doing the same transaction, you can do 20, and so on and so on… Ay least that’s what my store said. I am in Central FL. Also, I had no problems using printed coupons and also coupons from the Publix flyer that said Manufacturer coupons… No problems, good luck everyone…

    • Tammy C.

      I called 1-800-Kmart4U and was told that only the North Charleston, SC Kmart was doubling. Bummer 8(

    • Dee

      I just called the Kmart in Covington GA and the lady who answered said she was aware the promotion was going on in some stores, but it was not happening this week at the Covington or Doraville store. She wasn’t sure about the Snellville store.

    • lynn

      here in florida they are doubling

    • Pamela

      I called 3 stores near me in GA – Snellville, Buford and Doraville. None of them are doubling. :(

    • Sara

      I’m in FL and Kmart is doubling here. I just got a TON of stuff for $21.01. A TON! I’m new to couponing and having seen how much I save, I’m a little ashamed of how much money I used to throw away.

    • Danielle

      I called the corporate K-Mart office and asked them what stores in Georgia were doubling, since my was not, and the lady on the phone said that the only store she saw was in Kingsland. Hope this helps!

    • Mommapalm

      I’m in charlotte area and i just called the KMart on Freedom Drive and they said they were not, But the one in Gastonia said that if i printed off the thing from the internet, from their site i could do it.
      I can’t find anything anywhere!
      Anyone have a link of something they could post or e-mail me??

    • Sharon

      I just called the kmart in hopkinsville ky and they are not doubling coupons…..sorry!

    • Larissa

      I just emailed KMart to request a double coupon event for Carrollton Georgia. If they received a response from many people, perhaps that would encourage them to consider…. help@customerservice.kmart.com

    • lynn

    • Becky

      Here’s an e-mail I got when I e-mailed help@customerservice.kmart.com to find out if my local store was participating. Unfortunately, neither of the Kmart stores close to me are doubling, but the e-mail lists the Kentucky stores that are supposed to be doubling.

      Thank you for contacting Kmart regarding the Double Coupon Event. We appreciate your interest in this promotion.

      This event is for select participating Kmart locations from 06/07-06/13
      for coupons up to and including $2. This does not include Kmart store
      coupons, Kmart Pharmacy store coupons, or copies of manufacturer
      coupons. Limit 10 total coupons per customer per day. The participating
      Kentucky Kmart stores are Elizabethtown, Erlanger, Florence, Louisville,
      and Newport.

      Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate your
      business and value you as a Sears Holdings customer. We certainly hope
      you will continue to make Sears Holdings your choice for quality and
      value.

    • Beth

      Just wondering if anyone has tried any in North Alabama. I don’t think I have ever seen these great savings here. Boo….. I would love it…..

    • Jen

      Yay, Lexington, SC is doubling! They doubled all of my IPs and did not have any limit per transaction. When I asked the customer service desk, they told me they were doubling up to $3, but didn’t seem extremely sure of that. I only had up to $2 coupons, so call before you plan on using ones above $2.

      Had a great trip. I did 3 transactions, got back $14 OYNO for two of them. All together, I ended up “paying” $10 oop for more than $100 worth of items! Pretty good. Also, I received two movie tickets for doing the Axe deal.

      Items I got for free:
      Oust air and surface sanitizer
      Dove ultimate deodorant (3.99- $2 printable somewhere out there)
      Softsoap ensembles refill (2.99 – $2 printable coupon)
      I also got pledge cleaners, scrubbing bubbles, Axe products, and edge/skintimate shave gel to qualify for the spend $50, get $14 OYNO and to qualify for the “buy one axe shampoo and two other axe products and get a free movie ticket.”

    • Amy

      I just shopped at Kmart today in Cleveland, TN and saved over $100 with doubled coupons. They took internet coupons and there was no limit on number of coupons per transaction or per day.

    • Sharon

      OK, back from trip to Lexington, SC. 34 items = $31.00 and a $14.00 off my next purchase.
      4 Huggies wipes/4 Edge shaving gel/ 3 skintimates/ 4 Vasaline Aloe/ 4 Jergens lotion/ 1 lamasil on clearance for 1.55/ 2 ziploc steamers/ 4 Aussie/ 3 Pert for men/ 2 ziploc Container/ 1 Vasaline regular ok cant remember the rest lol Store is STOCKED, well worth going
      they are doing different this time and you are getting the overage.. YEAH
      Hope everyone has FUN
      THANKS JENNY

    • Marci

      I contacted Kmart and asked which stores in Tennessee were participating in the double coupons for 6/7-6/13 and they replied within 24 hours and said that Johnson City and Kingsport KMarts were the only ones participating this time. Just an fyi.

    • the k-mart in shelby n.c. is doubling but you have to ask….ask… and go to the service desk to check out….they said if you didn’t ask…you don’t get the doubles…i called the one in hendersonville n.c. and first they said yes and then told me to hang on then came back and said no….going in to ask may be the way to go..

    • nancy

      Not doubling in Wilmington, NC. I will write too.

    • I didn’t have time to read the comments, but I teach a coupon class and called before I taught one yesterday & tonight at the Hiram, GA store and the girl laughed and didn’t let me finish when I started my question (not rudely…she was very nice actually) and told me that the stores in Florida are all doing it but not here. She said “the site online” was giving mis information and they were getting so many calls and customers coming in about it but they were NOT doubling…just an FYI…sorry if this was said already and if any finds out they changed that let me know so I can let others know please!! But you never know if they’ll change that if enough people call…I’m a lot like a early commenter I skimmed said not a store I love to shop in, but I sure will if they will double up to $2.00!!

    • linda

      the rome ga kmartv is doubling the coupons

    • nancy

      545 Concord Parkway
      North Carolina is the only one doubling Coupon according to Head Office.

    • qponmom

      The N. Charleston, SC store is doubling the coupons and there is no limit. I found a coupon on a tearpad @ Bi-Lo for $2 off when you buy a package of Chips Ahoy cookies and a box of Capri Suns. These are both on sale at K-Mart for $2/5. I only paid .50 for each of them.

    • qponmom

      The fruit chillers are $2.49 @ the N. Charleston store. Look for the packages that have a $1 off coupon inside the package.

    • qponmom

      Update from the N. Charleston store. Just got back. Sorry but the Chips Ahoy cookies are no longer on sale that I posted earlier this morning. They did limit us to 10 coupons today.
      However, we did get a deal on 7-Up, Sunkist and A&W Rootbeer for FREE! Some bottles had a $1 off 2 bottles of 7-Up (but coupon did work on some of the other flavors). They were on sale for $1 each. Thanks to double coupons they are free. Since you have to get 2 bottles to use 1 coupon you can get 8 bottles for free and only use 4 coupons.

    • Mina

      I posted in another thread that this was going to be the first week in the almost 3 months since I returned to couponing that I was going to keep my week’s total under what I was spending in my pre q shopping – IF I stayed away from KMart. Not only did I not stay away, I need to go back.

      I don’t have any great stories about paying pennies on the dollar there. I have a special needs daughter who wears GoodNites and she was down to her last pack. She uses a pack and a half per week. I can tell you that it only takes 3 pkgs of 21 “diapers” to get over the $50 hump. (groan) So, $17.29 X 3 = $51.87.
      $51.87 – $5 off $50 = $46.87 – $1.50/1 x3 doubled = $37.87 (plus 7% tax on the original $51.87) TOTAL
      They did qualify for the $14 cat. So, I need to go back tomorrow and buy 3 packs of the wrong size (because I got the only 3 in her size) for what should be $24.87 plus tax total, rinse and repeat one more time. Customer Service said that I could bring those back and exchange them later for the right size with no problem.

      After that, I’ll just hope that we have enough to last until there is another good sale on XLarge.

      I would have LOVED to have used the $5/50 combined with Super Doubles on fun stuff or a wider range of products, but restocking the necessities is more important.

      Maybe, just maybe after I get all the GoodNites that I can, I’ll have time, energy, and $, and find a good deal on other things that we use. LOL So much for my “budget.” I’m beginning to doubt that I’ll ever be able to stay under it. As soon as I get one thing stocked up, 2 more piles have been used up.

    • Brooke

      I live in Central Florida and K-Mart is doubling coupons. However, I was curious if anyone else ran into prices constantly changing at K-Mart or not being posted correctly? I stopped on Monday and purchased some of the Del Monte Fruit Chillers. I purchased 4 strawberry because they scanned for 1.99 at the price scanner while the rasberry scanned for 2.99. I printed a couple more coupons at work yesterday and stopped this morning to purchase 2 more fruit chiller and today both flavors scanned for 2.99?!?!?!?!?! At KMart I always stop by the price scanner before heading to the checkout to prevent surprises.
