KMart Double Coupons


KMart is doing Double Coupons this week(up to 5 Qs double when you spend $25 or more)and as I had to go to KMart anyway for a pick-up this week, I put together a transaction using my Qs.
The point was to find items on sale this week at KMart and pair them up with high value Qs that would double.
I did moderately well but not great and I couldn't find enough $2 Qs to pair with sale items.
Here is the best I could do.  It's hard to do this AND being able to double only 5 Qs.
I also have to make sure everything I bought was stuff I could use.



4 x Ziploc bags on sale $3=$12.00
3 x Gear Deodorant on sale $4=$12.00
1 x Glade candle on sale=$3.00
SubTotal.....$27.00

Coupons Used
2 x $1/2 Ziploc IPQ(doubled)=$4.00
1 x BOGOFree Gear IPQ(not doubled)=$4.00
1 x $2/1 Gear IPQ(doubled)=$4.00
1 x $1/1 Glade IPQ(doubled)=$2.00
Coupon Total......$14.00

$27-$14=$13 + $.78 tax=$13.78 OOP

Well actually I didn't spend anything OOP because I used the rest of 2 gift cards with small balances on them I got last year for transferring RXs.

The BOGO Q didn't double obviously and the register wouldn't take 3 of the other 4 Qs.
Ugh.
Cashier said it's their system so she had to have a manager come over and put them through.
This transaction was a PITA as are most on the rare occasion I go to KMart.

But notice the Q the register spit out......

$5 off Grocery, Health Care and/or Beauty Care on a $5 purchase.
So basically I can get $5 of free stuff and if I buy grocery items there is no tax in PA.
Woohoo!

Also the Ziploc bags count toward a $5 rebate once I spend $22 on these products at SavingStar.
I am $10 away from that reward.
So I might just use this $5 Q to get 2 more boxes of Ziplocs at KMart.
I'd pay $1.06 OOP for them(I WOULD use another $1/2 Ziploc Q BUT typically you can't use other Qs with one of these Register Qs at KMart) and only need to purchase $4 more of Ziploc products to get my $5 rebate.

Sluggy

  1. The only way I have been able in the past to double coupons a KMart was to spend $25 or $30. Of course, you did spend that much. Hmmm, I will have to check and see if they changed their policy.

  2. Ooops. I see you stated the policy in the first sentence.
