Starting tomorrow at participating Kmart stores get coupons $2 or less doubled.  There are a number of rules so…

1.  (5) coupons are doubled per day
2.  You must purchase $25 or more to be eligible
3.  Only available for Shop Your Way members (free to join).
4.  Limit of 4 like items.

To get all the details and find participating stores go here.

Warning these events at Kmart are not for the faint of heart, they really have no clue what’s happening and you will need to be vigilant to watch your coupons and make sure everything works as it should.

That said… there are 668 $2 off coupons!  Use the coupon database and search for “$2 off” to see everything available!

(thanks to everyone that emailed!!)

      Is this at all KMART's?

    • Musicandromance79

      Is that $25 before coupons? or after?

      • Julie

        I have done this before and usually it is $25 before coupons

      • Work4mals

        The $25 is your TOTAL purchase – then you can start using your $2 Q's to bring down your total.

    • Thylace79

      And they wonder why I drive right by and go and extra half mile to walmart

      • Jason

        Why? Is Walmart doubling $2 coupons?

    • Hrleod

      Easley Sc Kmart is participating!! I just called

    • WynetteC

      I did this the last time they offered this type of sale! And (5) $2 coupons double is $20 off whatever the total comes to at $25 or above. Possibility of spending $5 + tax for five or more items. :)

    • dealfinder86

      This has never been worth the time or effort I put into it. I would only participate in this, if you are already planning to be at K-mart. There are too many restrictions!

    • Cpk153

      Has anyone done this using more than 5 coupons? I understand only five will double (first 5 scanned?). I was thinking of using my free advil coupon as a 6th in order to bring my oop cost down.

      • That is the SAME thing I did the last time I used my free advil coupon to make it 25 !

        • Great idea!Thanks!

    • Nikkiinknox

      I'm unsure how to find the coupons for $2 off in the coupon database, I see the $1 off when I first get to the page but I don't see any other options!

      • kpep01

        In the box where you would type the name of a product, just type $2 and the data base will pull up everything that starts with $2 off. I would scroll the $1 also to see if there are any products that you may need in that price range as well. Happy Shopping.

    • I agree you REALLY have to watch the people at K-Mart ! I always do ! And you might have to print out the policy also most of the time they don't know the policy themselves the last time I did this it was so MUCH drama but worth it for the amount of things I got !

    • JoJo

      Can you spend $25 on anything. .I received an email directly from Kmart and it said you had to spend $25 on groceries or drug merchandise. What do you think?

      • Momto7

        Yes only only groceries or drug merchandise. Last time I thought we did good had shoes to bring to $25 and they wouldn't do it. It was my fault didn't read the fine print.

    • Amberfluhr

      so the best possible scenario would be total before coupons:$25.00.. use (5) -$2 coupons for an oop total of 5.00??????

    • Galveston 2000

      be nice to have an early ad-I did not do this last time but may try this –

    • Kathyjb819

      for some reason I'm having trouble finding their coupon policy on their website, anyone hav ea direct link?

    • Proudpatriot2007

      Eh, not if I have to spend $25 at their store… not much I'd really want in there besides toiletries/personal care products that I'd have coupons for anyway…

    • Ophilia11

      Too much work at Kmart. Staff usually never knows this deal is happening either. Not worth the trip and headache.

    • RebeccaFer

      I'm so sad that KMart is unable to get up to date with things and really give couponers a reason to come to their stores. I remember in my teen years how much I loved KMart but now it's like a sad memory of itself. I hope they have a major overhaul in management like Target did … except that they figure out how to allow couponers to use coupons better than Target's current policy. This 5 doubling coupon thing is a sad joke.

    • Walkjane

      My Kmart in Rocky Mount NC would not accept the coupons. They had an ad of their own with several coupons in it and told me those were the ONLY coupons that would double. I suggested they check their website which suggested it was any coupons $2 and under, but they were clueless and refused to double.

      • teethgirl

        the rocky mount flyer even said on the back page that they were doubling coupons! I hate that store, they never seem to be able to get it right! They are coupon nazi's!!!

    • Lisa

      KMart in Cleveland handed back 3 of my coupons and only doubled one, a second they gave $1.75 vs the full $2. Cashier did not explain the 25 cents short change. The others that they handed back were because they were on like items. Example I bought 3 Gillette Deodorants and had 2 – $2 off coupons and 1 buy 2 get 1 free. They only let me use the buy 2 get 1 free and said the others would not work due 1 coupon per purchase. Don't buy like items and expect multiple coupons to apply.

    • LRae17

      I can't tell from the rules if the $25 is before or after coupons. Anyone know?

    • Elaine Green

      Went to Kmart today will by buggy load of coupons. You have to price check an item to know for sure how much the product is. Got to the counter, we had a dispute over 1 coupon, and by the way they are slow. I walked out with nonthing.

      You have to get what's on sale, their prices are higher. I'm not sure I'll try this again.


    • Deb

      my K-mart in West Cola, SC, had an obscure sign at the Customer Service desk stating that the coupons were good only on pantry and drugstore items. The front door sign advertised super double cpns like the sales paper. Only after I checked out with Olay Face Wash, Playtex Tampons, and kitty treats did I start with problems. Nothing at all doubled, at customer service they pulled out the sign, and couldn't say why the tampons didn't work, may they had to be “pills”. So, I left with nothing also.

    • Cpk153

      I did this today at my kmart in Honesdale, PA. I took my brother with me so we could use his card too. I bought a few things that were needed although not really “cheap”. Make sure they scan your rewards card first and that you are at $25 of grocery and drugstore purchases before coupons. for coupons I used a $2 Tampax pearl, 2 – $2 Gillete deo., 2-$2 Gillete Fusion shave gel, 2-$1 Listerine, 2- $2 Scope, and a $1 Dial bodywash. (again through 2 transactions using 2 different cards). All went through fine and in total I ended up spending around $16 but that was do to buying larger sizes of some of the needed items and a box of white fudge oreos…..

    • Galveston 2000

      tried it today-in longview tx-no coupons doubled-said was because i used 5 “like ” coupons had 4 $2 fusion shave creme and 1 gillette deod $2 coupon-I had $25 before couponthe mgr said all p&g coupons counted as “like” coupons-I wasted a good Sun afternoon in k-mart and walked out with nothing.

    • Schneck85

      I went to Kmart in Warner Robins, Ga. today a nd went in knowing Kmarts prices are a bit higher so I only brought coupons that were $2. I got a large box of Pampers diapers listed at 20.99 (not a good deal) but had a $2 coupon which doubled. I also got 2 things of Buttpaste listed at 5.99 but had $2 coupons.

      • Elaine

        I wasted my time at this store. They don't know what is going on.

    • Bamafan

      I went to the Jasper AL Kmart – everything went fine with the first 3 coupons. The last two for cereal where problematic because the clerk could not figure out what she had to select on the cash register – it presented her with a screen to select the products that matched the coupons – very odd. I THINK I got all my coupons doubled….took way too long though….

    • bamagirl1977

      between me and my mom we got…

      1 pinesol paid $.49

      4 nestle candy paid 4.76

      8 2ltr cokes paid 6.00

      1 dog chow paid 1.29

      1 cat chow paid 4.69

      1 holiday bounty napkins paid $.99

      2 keebler crackers paid 3.00

      1 chips ahoy paid 1.19

      not bad (not great) but I needed all of this anyway

    • Julie

      I went yesterday and used 5 coupons with no problem. I got a free Olay face wash, free Gillette deoderant, free Gillette shave gel, $1 Jergens lotion, and $2 Biore face wash. I filled in the rest of the $25 with Coke, which was on sale. I'm actually considering going back tonight for more deals.

      Does anyone know if makeup coupons are doubling?

    • KK

      I went today with 5-$2 coupons and did not have any problems I bought:

      Clearasil face wash-.63 cents after coupons

      Oil of Olay face wash- 1.99 after coupons

      Maybelline Lip gloss- .19 after coupons

      Maybelline mascare- .19 after coupons

      Frizz ease secret weapon- 2.99 after coupons

      For a total of $7.00 for all items, I am debating going again tomorrow :)

    • Krystalbrooke89

      I went in Kmart this evening, I had 3 packs of Huggies diapers. I was granted the $5 giftcard but my coupons did not double. I had the manager called to the register, he stated that only grocery and drugstore items were qualified. He then asked the cashier if she had scanned my Rewards card and she hadn't. She then scanned it but they still did not double. My total was $29.97. I've heard of other people's coupons doubling and them getting the diapers for $4.37 a pack. What can I do to get my discount corrected or why did it not work for me?

    • Julie

      I had to ask for a manager to get my coupons to double. The cashiers said “we can't pay you to buy these items!” ” Coupons will not double if it exceeds the value” and that was their reason why my coupons were not doubling. After asking for a manager I found out that 1 of my items was not a qualified grocery item. I had bought some Phillips LCD TV screen cleaning gel on sale for 9.99 – 3.00 coupon to help bring the order to $25.and it was not a qualified grocery item. I do not understand why the cashiers could not tell me this. They said they had no other coupon deals all day! I then added a few travel Advil's at check out to make the deal work because now I had a BIG headache!
