K-Mart is doubling coupons again at select stores starting yesterday. Please call your local store to see if they are participating before getting ready.   I held off really thinking that many Southern Stores were not participating but I’ve had emails from various TN and VA folks that their stores are.

A few new rules:

  1. You must spend $25 before coupons.
  2. 10 coupons per person per day.
  3. Can only buy 4 of the same item in each transaction.

For lots of coupon matches go to My Frugal Adventures or  Common Sense with Money.

    • Amy B.

      Vero Beach, FL is participating

    • Elizabeth

      I haven’t actually been in the K-mart store in Huntsville, AL, to confirm, but I called and they said they were not doubling. :(

    • Rhonda

      Stores in Southern Indiana (Clarksville, Jeffersonville, New Albany) ARE participating.

    • Kam

      St. Andrews Rd. in Irmo is not participating. :(

    • I called 1-866-562-7848 and pressed option #6 and asked which K-MART in Georgia and they said only the one in kingsland is doing the promo ( tears streaming down my face). Would have been nice since I could have used about 79% of these items

    • Brinda

      I’ve called St. Andrews, Two Notch, Charleston Hwy and Lexington. I cannot find a store in the Columbia, SC area which is participating.

    • Jenny

      The K-Mart in Cleveland, TN is participating, but they changed the rules again. This time, you do not have to have the 25.00 purchase, BUT they will not double to equal the price of the item. For example: if an item is 1.99 and you have a 1.00 coupon, they will not double it to 1.99, they will only take off 1.00. So, be careful when you select what you are going to buy!

    • KMart in Asheville NC is not participating. :-( Hope you all get great deals if your KMart is doubling! Happy shopping!

    • Lorie

      I called North Augusta, SC and they said they are not participating.

    • Sarah

      I just checked the store in Franklin, TN, and they said that none of the Nashville area stores are participating. I wish they would at least SOME of the time!

    • Amanda

      Louisville KY store on corner of Breckenridge and Taylorsville IS participating

    • Melinda

      Only one KMart in SC is participating. North Charleston, SC – Maybe Greenville next time

    • shannon

      north chas & chas, sc kmarts are NOT participating. :(

    • Kmart in Orlando is… but was out of the Aveeno and Ponds :(

    • WM

      ***The IP Ponds coupon says it is only good on the 30ct pack. Those are $5.99 at Kmart so I didn’t use it.

      I’m so excited because we never have doubles in West Palm Beach, FL so I have to brag about everything I got today for .62!! Yeah!!

      1 Playtex Living Gloves $1.97 – $1 coup (S 6/28) = FREE
      2 Kotex 22 ct $1.29 each – two $1 coups (S 7/19) = FREE
      1 Carefree Panty Liner $1.29 – $1.00 coup (home mailer) = FREE
      1 Skintimate Shaving Cream $2.89 – $1.00 coup (S 8/2) = .89
      1 Visine $3.99 – $2.00 coup (S 8/2) = FREE
      1 Listerine $4.29 – $2.00 coup (SS ?) = .29
      1 Sure Deodorant $2.29 – $1.25 coup (S 6/28) = FREE
      1 Dove Deodorant $2.69 – $1.25 coup (RP 6/7) = .19
      2 Ziploc Steam Bags $2.00 each – two $1.00 coups (from a Publix flyer) = FREE
      2 Ajax $1.99 each – two $1.00 IP coup = FREE

      1 Bumble Bee Albacore Tuna Pouch $1.99 – $1.00 coup (S 6/14) = FREE

      Then the cashier scanned a $5.00 off coupon she had sitting on the register and said you need to buy more stuff because your total is negative $2.68!! I wasn’t planning on the extra $5.00 off, so I grabbed two bottles of Snapple ($1.59 each) that were right there at the check out and that brought me to owing .62 for everything : )

      Yesterday I got:
      1 Men’s Speed Stick deo $2.79 – $1.50 (IP coupon previously on coupons.com) = free.
      1 Lady Speed Stick deo $2.99 -$1.50 (IP coupon previously on coupons.com) = free.
      1 Tag Body Spray $4.29 – $2.00 (P&G 8/2) = .29.
      2 WD-40 8oz $3.29 each – two $1.50 IP coupons = .29 each.
      (WD-40 coupon http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qcrsbno131171&bt=wi&o=54933&c=WD&p=OtMCJHdv )

    • val

      I live in Athens, Alabama. I called my store and was told that they were not participating, but then the customer service lady checked with a manager and she came back on the phone and said that they would double up to $1.00. I went and picked out the Aveeno products even though my coupons were for $2.00, but the cashier still accepted it and doubled it. :) All the coupons were scanned and then manually doubled by the cashier. Very successful trip. I even had $8.00 in coupons print for my next visit.

    • liz

      Megan, I live in Gainesville as well. You should email me and we can alert each other of local deals. Let me know if you are interested.

    • Amber

      The K-mart I went to in hixson participated, but they wouldn’t allow any overage… so not as much fun this time around.

    • Terry E.

      I also found at Hixson, that they do not require a $25 purchase this time :)

    • The one in Titusville FL is NOT participating :(
      I called yesterday and she said since theyre store is closing theyre not involved this time…

    • WM
      be careful using that coupon.
      I had a manu coupon that said “redeem at Publix” even though it was a manu coupon they didnt take it.

    • darlene

      I just called the Kmart in North Charleston, SC and the coupon doubling is starting tomorrow 8/19. They are not sure if it is up to $1.00 or $2.00. I hope this helps someone.

    • Ginni

      Just called the North Chas. Kmart. They ARE participating in the doubles.

    • darlene

      Also, I forgot to mention they said we could use 25 coupons.

    • Charlotte

      Super K-Mart in North Charleston will start doubling on Wed. 19th. The lady said she wasn’t sure if they were doubling up to $1 or not…but I’m getting my coupons ready. I called the Charleston (Hwy. 17) store and they said no. BUT…I’m wonding if she said no because it starts tomorrow? I’ll call back later today or tomorrow.

    • Big Daddy

      The K-Mart in Ocala, Fl on Silver Springs Blvd. is doubling…was well stocked on Sunday..

    • Angela

      The only K-Mart participating in NC is the one in Concord. Address is 545 Concord Parkway North. This is great for the people who live in North Charlotte.

    • My Kmart had a coupon book with $62 worth of coupons…90 % were manu. coupon!

    • Freedom

      the one in cleveland-are they doubling printable coupons?
      Looks like someone said they HWY 58 one will not. Curious before i head out.

    • Cassie

      Jacksonville, FL is doubling, but beware, most of the prices listed on here are $.20/.60 higher, so there are some great cheapies, but not all of the freebies are free for us…

    • Migs

    • Learning2CouponFL


      Are you talking about the K-Mart at Lee Rd and 17-92?

      I went in that one today and the cashier said they were doubling but I didn’t see any signs and it wasn’t mentioned in the fliers (at least not on the cover). I’m going to get ready and go tomorrow, hopefully the cashier was right and they still have a few of the things I want in stock.

      I found the coupon books too. They were sitting with the advertisements right by the doors.

      Does anyone know if the ones with the K-Mart symbol are really manufacturer coupons that would be accepted other places? A few said they were only accept at K-Mart in the fine print but the majority didn’t.

    • Val

      Went back to K-Mart today, but was not as pleasant as the other day. In fact I am considering returning my whole purchase. I bought items yesterday that qualified for a $3.00 &$5.00 coupon to print when you spent $10.00 on specified brands, which they did. Today I did the same thing and no coupons would print. The manager told me it was because I was using Manufacture coupons and that after that the items were less than $10.00. Nowhere in the add does it say that you can’t use manufacture coupons. Very disappointed. I was planning on rolling those coupons to the next purchase. My store is not advertising double coupons, but because others stores are doing it they will up to a dollar. I had a purchase yesterday that came to $6.06 after using MC and a printed K-Mart $5.00 off coupon. The manager told me today that I was getting products next to free. I don’t see the problem when they are getting remimbursed from the Manufacture and they offered to double my coupons. Noone is twisting their arm. I left today embarrased and made to feel like I was trying to cheat THEIR system.

    • heather

      Jacksonville, FL is participating. At my store this morning they would not take competitor’s coupons but doubled up to $2 on manu’s. My cashier didnt tell me if a coupon did not ring up, I just noticed they didn’t go through and she had to re-process the whole thing (since she couldnt figure out how to take something off).

    • Sabrina

      I haven’t found a store in Nashville that is participating.

    • Barbara

      Ft Oglethorpe Georgia (right below Chattanooga) is doing this all week (until Saturday) Just went and saved a bunch! They let me use internet printables last time they had this about a month ago but this time they weren’t too sure if they could but the manager couldn’t find the right person to ask so she let me use them.

    • Sarah

      I am so disappointed I went by my store in Covington, Ga and they weren’t doubling it’s been a bad week in my area; Kroger wouldn’t double up to a $1 like the other stores and now Kmart. My area needs to get with the program. I certainly would enjoy getting free stuff to help out my two siblings that are out of work.

    • Hope Cottrell

      My K-Mart is NOT participating: Covington GA

    • qponmom

      N.Charleston store started it today, but said it will be advertised in the paper tomorrow. The person I spoke to at customer service said the limit is 25 coupons. Doubling coupons valued up to $2 and there was not a limit of purchasing $25 before doubling. Spent $1.98 after tax for $33.10 worth of groceries.

    • Went to the Kmart in Cleveland,Tn today and will not be back for regular shopping or double coupon week. Very frustrating and embarrassing trip! First the cashier yanked the coupons out of my hand and said.., “Girl lets see if you can even use these coupons”. Then she preceded to tell me that Kmart will not let you buy more than one of the same item and use a coupon. I had tried to purchase 2 Sauve Body washes, 2 Secret deoderants, and four Lipton pasta sides pouches. I had one coupon for each item and no more than four of any one item. She said they are no longer letting customers buy more than one item and use one coupon for it in the same transaction. I thought the limits were ono more than four of an item and no more than ten coupons per transaction. I was not aware of this new rule were you cannot buy two of the same item in one transaction. Then she said two of my coupons I received in the mail attached to a rebate check were photcopies and not real coupons, simply because they were in black and white, not color. So she then stated that I was trying to rip off the store in front of several other customers who were in line behind me. Needless to say…., I will take my coupons else where. : (

    • Freedom

      Just got back from Kmart in Cleveland TN.
      Total 96.82
      total after coupons 24.12
      plus I did 2 transactions, I did 1 and my mom did 1. Got 2 $5 off coupons. I am going to use these tomorrow at the hwy 58 store.
      They were out of a few things but not many. And also when the cashier rang up the coupons, she scanned them and then entered the same amount again to double them. There were quite a few that gave me overages-some of them more than $1 over.
      My son was also with me and $15 of the total were toys-did use a $2 off $10 playdough coupon though-that was a plus!!
      All in all a great trip.

    • Elizabeth

      I am having trouble getting the $5/$50 coupon emailed to me…anyone else having that problem?

    • Elizabeth

      Forgot to mention that I checked my spam/junk folder and everything…still no email. I requested it yesterday, never got it, so I requested it again today and still nothing! I need that Q! : )

    • Amanda

      Elizabeth 54 and 55..

      the 5/50 coupon isn’t emailed, it opens in a new tab in your browser as a pdf. you just print right from there.

      try http://blogs.mykmart.com/coupons/ and then click on the image of the coupon. it will pop up as a separate file. make sure you enable pop ups.. maybe that’s what’s going on with yours. HTH!

    • Elizabeth

      Thanks so much, Amanda! I’m heading out now!

    • GG

    • val

      I tried using a $5 off $50 coupon on my purchase and was not allowed to. I handed it to the cashier first and she set it aside then took all my other coupons and scanned them first. When it was all said and done my total was $18 and change. They would then not accept the $5 off coupon stating that I needed to spend $50 after all coupons and discounts. I may never shop at K-Mart again after the experience I had.

    • GG

      Had a bad experience today at K-Mart, cashier just could not get the coupons in there right, didn’t want to give me credit on some and on a B1G1 she said cannot do that……..What is up with that. She called someone else over but still didn’t get it right, should have had to pay $5 or so but she said $18 and some change so I told her that was incorrect and they said, well just pay and bring everything over to the customer service desk and get a refund and start over. I couldn’t do that cause I was on my lunch, so I told them to just void the transaction and walked away with nothing, what a waste of my lunch hour……..this is the first time that I have really had difficulty with the double coupon deals……..

    • Amanda

      final kmart stats after 3 trips this week…. $318 worth of stuff for $54 OOP with the $5 gc on the way!

    • Diane Lacks

      K-Mart is still doubling on Tab Va
