Now through the end of April, Kmart will double coupons up to $1! The doubling will be on Wednesday and Saturday.

You must buy $25 worth of grocery and drugstore items before coupons. You will also need to have a Shop Your Way Rewards card (free rewards card) and scan it at the beginning of check out.

There is a limit of 5 coupons doubled per day, excludes B1G1 deals and there is a limit of 4 of the same item.

Search for coupons to use on this deal.

      Is it me or does this seem to have a ton of restrictions? 

      • laBreeze

        I don’t find it to be any more complicated than the juggling we do at Walgreens with making sure we have the right amount of items balanced with coupons, grabbling unwanted filler items & being careful to not use an RR on the same brand item AND not forgetting us the RRs before they expire.

        • Jkk1110

           no… walgreens is wayy easier and the have friendlier staff. I’ll pass on K-mart.

        • Twoawilkes

          That’s why I’m so selective of what I buy at Wal-Green. Their program is not that good and I have e-mailed them about my concern and did a comparison of their rewards program to their program and showed how much they were lacking. 

    • jennie

      so the 5 coupons doubled per day.. is that for any coupons or is that for 5 coupons for 5 of the same items? if its 5 per day and thats it.. it seems like a waste to even bother with kmart double deals

      • laBreeze

        It’s for the first 5 coupons you hand them.  They monitor your transactions with your rewards card, so multiple transactions in one day won’t help you, but you can do this two days in a week, Wednesday & Saturday.  I’ve done it twice.  The first time I bought $60.68 in products & only paid $15.19, 75% savings.  The second week I bought $121.40 in products & paid $28.47, 77% savings, and my “paid” totals are including 9.25% sales tax, AND I earned $5 gift cards for purchasing $50 in grocery/personal care items.   I love it!

          In what state, doubled coupon up to $1? I never tried shop at Kmart, but seeing what your savings i think i wanna shop there now.

        • flower_mom

          Only the first five coupons are doubled and rest are at face value?  I can’t see how that is even worth your time.  I’ll stick to Publix.

      It does to me too. I’ll skip this deal.

      • laBreeze

        I’ve been loving it!  I’ve done it twice.  The first time I bought $60.68 in products & only paid $15.19, 75% savings.  The second week I bought $121.40 in products & paid $28.47, 77% savings, and my “paid” totals are including 9.25% sales tax, AND I earned $5 gift cards for purchasing $50 in grocery/personal care items.

    • Debbie-patterson

      waste of time

      • laBreeze

        Not for me!  I’ve done it twice.  The first time I bought $60.68 in products & only paid $15.19, 75% savings.  The second week I bought $121.40 in products & paid $28.47, 77% savings, and my “paid” totals are including 9.25% sales tax, AND I earned $5 gift cards for purchasing $50 in grocery/personal care items.

    • laBreeze

      This has been going on for over a month.  I’ve done it twice.  The first time I bought $60.68 in products & only paid $15.19, 75% savings.  The second week I bought $121.40 in products & paid $28.47, and my “paid” totals are including 9.25% sales tax, AND I earned $5 gift cards for purchasing $50 in grocery/personal care items. .  I think this Kmart double coupons event is AWESOME and I wish more of the coupon bloggers would get on board with it and show people how much they can save with it.  Kmart will double the first 5 coupons you hand them, but you can use as many as you want in a transaction.  To bump my total up there I used some freebie coupons, (I had one for a free $12.99 John Freida hair color!) and I bought several clearance items that were free or almost free after using a [not doubled] $1/$1.50/$2 Q. Lastly, each week, Kmart has had a store coupon for a free grocery item.  So I am sold on this deal, and Kmart is becoming one of my favorite stores! (o:

      • Jtdjagos

        The max you can save is $10, and i agree with other people that their prices are higher. If you used free product coupons, they could have been used anywhere for the same savings. Can you list only what you bought with the double coupons(the starting price and what it came down to per item) so we can see if it is worthwhile. I know your time is valuable, but this might convert the rest of us.  Thanks

      • Bobsblue2001

         I gotta wonder why you didn’t split those big orders to take advantage of more coupons…..

    • Piphidancer

      Does this include Florida? 

      • Mel

        yes….Florida too…. I am in Polk County and the KMart by me doubles wednesday and saturday only…. up to 5 coupons max $1 after $25 purchase….. I did it once… bot huge 24 pack toilet papers for $3……. However…. the whole trip took me almost 2 hours…. most of that time was at register while the employees (4 of them. 2 of which were management) tried to figure out how to ring up the coupons since the sytem didnt auto double the coupons…. What a fun trip that was!  NOT…… never going back!

    • Guest

      Waste of time for 5 doubled coupons. I stopped shopping there years ago when the never had anything on sale in stock. Maybe that has changed since no one I know shops there anymore so maybe they now have stock ,LOL, that’s why they are in trouble.

      • Christine

        I avoid Kmartas  they so often do not have what is in there flyers. This may have improved but happened so often in the past it seemed like ‘bait and switch’.

    • Surveytaker872011

      I’m sorry, I don’t want to sound like a “Negative Nancy” but something about this whole double coupon period at KMART isn’t sitting well with me. I read comments that people are saving so much money and it’s so worth the trip. My biggest problem is there is a minimum purchase required in order to get your coupons doubled. Personally I think it’s dumb to try and tell people they MUST purchase a minimum of $25 in the grocery and drug store departments. The same items could be purchased at Walmart and Target with the same savings, if not more, because the prices of the other stores are usually lower, at least in my area they are. With the other stores there is no minimum purchase required. Granted they won’t double any of the coupons I use, but if I can only double a maximum of 5 coupons up to $1, I just can’t see the point.

    • cgmaynard

      My Greenwood SC Kmart stinks. I made a special trip today just to get the Kellogs poptarts and cereal that were on sale to match with my coupons. All the coupons I had printed had the new barcode on them. I get to the register and the cashier couldn’t get their scanner to scan them. She called over her “manager’ who stood there with her mouth open like she had no idea what was going on. She said was “uh uh, I don’t know. I guess I can’t do anything.” and then stood there staring at me. I told them if I couldn’t use my coupons I didn’t want any of my items. She said, “Ok, I’ll void it off” and then acted like I wasn’t even there. I’m never going back .

      • LouSha418

        Thanks for letting me know I just texted my couponing sista in law so we could plan a trip now I wont bother.

    • Orchiddreams27

      Their double coupon policy is listed on an actual coupon. I’m posting the link. If that doesn’t work, visit their website, at the bottom of the page hover over kmart deals and click on coupon center. The “Double Manu. Q’ is the first one to pop up. gl

    • cindharb

      I am only offering this negative post in hopes that someone with authority at Kmart will be paying attention and make a change.  The restrictions are among the most complex in coupon world, and I have never found line-level staff, or even supervisors, to know how the program works.  Top managers will finally come in and force the transaction just to make you happy, but the value of your considerable time expended makes this not worthwhile.  One exception:  if the double Qs coincide with availability of very rare Qs on high ticket items that rarely go on sale.  For me, that’s the Clear Care contact solution that gets used at our house.  Having to just buy one or two things to reach the $25 saves time on the manager [when you’ve finally “earned” his/her time through enduring the efforts of the cashier] having to manually force each thing.  The manually forcing suggests that even the top management aren’t trained in this. 

    • britt

      Just saying, but I think laBreeze works for KMart bc she has posted how happy she was and then put the same comment on everyone elses post! :)

      • Coupondad

        Well all I can say about that is the first time I bought $60.68 in products & only paid $15.19, 75%
        savings.  The second week I bought $121.40 in products & paid
        $28.47, 77% savings, and my “paid” totals are including 9.25% sales tax,
        AND I earned $5 gift cards for purchasing $50 in grocery/personal care
        items. I love it! (-:

        • Twoawilkes

          Was the restrictions as tight those times? They are only doubling 5 and you have to spend $25 before they will begin doubling. From my calculations you won’t be able to that this time even if all 5 of your coupons are $1 the maximum savings is $10

          • laBreeze

            Yes, it was the same restrictions.  You can use as many coupons as you want in your $25 transaction.  The first 5 you hand the cashier will double.

        • laBreeze

          LOL!  You copied & pasted my post! (:

      • laBreeze

        LOL!  I promise, I don’t!  :-D  I just obviously had too much time on my hands today… rare…. ;-D

    • Tthompsonjob

      If anyone had a good transaction experience, can you post it? Im in line with everyone else… It’s not worth it. Maybe a specific report will convert.

      I beleive the last time I went into Kmart and tryed to double coupon, the prices were so high  even when they did double, I would be spending more than if I went to the grocery store.

    • Sunny

      What does KMart consider to be drug store items?

      • laBreeze

        Personal care items, shampoo, feminine hygiene, vitamins, aspirin, razors, cosmetics…

      • Twoawilkes

        I agree! Everyone should go to Kmart’s website and let them know. It’s truly not worth my time. You have to spend $25 before doubling begins.

    • Twoawilkes

      Just went to K-Marts website and left feedback about this promotion. I let them know it did not encourage me to shop at their stor and that it simply confirmed to me that K-Mart is not a place that I like to shop at

    • Joette

      I specifically remember in March 2010, they ran a double coupon special up to 2 dollar coupons. And there was no minimum purchase necessary. That was a “true Coupon promotion event. What they are doing now is just totally a waste of anyone s time.

    • Crystalgoodwin3

      Certainly not worth my time.
      There’s a reason that K-mart is in trouble. Our K-mart is always either hot or cold inside. Hot or cold at the wrong time of year.
      My Harris Teeter is doing Triples this week and super doubles next week. Harris Teeters prices probably aren’t any higher then K-mart. Even Lowes Food is doubling this week. They both will double or triple the first 20 per day. Our Harris Teeter is considered a beach location so during the winter months, they are always either doing triples or super doubles, mostly super doubles.

    • tygirl13

      The only time that I have had any luck doubling at Kmart is when the $2 doubles are at the same time as the P&G promos that they run sometimes.  I can get some pretty good deals that way….this seems a like it may not be worth trying work something out for.

    • Too many rules! I’ll stick to CVS and Publix!!

    • Regina64

      After the last ordeal with Kmart….i will stick with CVS, Walgreens, Publixs, and Bilo.  Not worth the effort to drive the 18 miles for just to deal with chaos.

      • Rbcurrey

         Amen, Regina64.  Totally not easy to take advantage of this “deal”.  Gas is to high to drive to face the stress you will encounter at K-Mart.

    • Willie

      Kmart’s “Double Coupon” deals are just too limiting.  You must spend $25 and then you can only double 5 coupons?!  So the most I’m gonna save is $5?!  Seriously, that’s not worth my time.  Seems that Rain Man was right.

      • Sp9795

        You double 5 coupons of $1 each… that makes a $10 savings on $25 purchase… that’s not bad… especially if you find things on sale to buy

    • sage117

      It seems like Kmart thanks they are losen money by doubling coupons.
      They need not to forget that  those coupons do go to the publishing clearing house and Kmart is reimbursed there monies.

    • Shannonbanishoraka

      This whining about only being allowed to double five coupons is ridiculous.  Consider yourselves fortunate.  I live in the midwest and our Rainbows Foods has had this same coupon policy for years.  Only 5 coupons double and the total must be $25 before coupons.  We all work with this and consider ourselves fortunate to have stores that double.  I have had my orders come out for under $2 on frequent occasions.  When you combine with store coupons and mfr. coupons it works out quite well.
        We should applaud K-Mart for doubling their coupons, the more people that jump on that bandwagon the better it will get.
       

    • bob

      just a thought: if any of you have ever owned a small store, you will
      know the following: You say you are being “forced” to spend $25…
      There’s a reason. Grocery stores (for example) typically make  2% on
      sale items after paying for the product to come in the back door. That
      would =.20 per $25. This .20 is used to pay employees, utilities, rent,
      insurance, uniforms, maintenance, state taxes, federal taxes, yearly liquor license, fees, etc.  Now, the left over from that .20 is
      considered profit. Profit is now what’s used to make upgrades, purchase
      new scanners, computers, remodel, buy new machines/registers, gives the
      needed cash flow to hire new employees, give employees raises etc.  So
      when a store has a coupon policy, believe me, they’re enforcing it so it
      doesn’t get out of hand, fits in their budget and still offers customers
      some fair pricing.  They’re not  trying to rip anyone off. Just trying their best to stay in business. And the doubling part of the coupons?  That comes from the “profits” part of the $25. Notice how there’s not much left of the .20 to do this. No profit=businesses/stores closes and employees lose jobs.
