Kmart’s store coupons & deals March 18-24 2012 are great! Confused about where to get coupons that aren’t printable – learn how to get those coupons!

  • Kmart will double up to $1 manufacturer’s coupons – EVERYDAY this week!
  • Limit 5 coupons per day
  • You may only purchase 4 of the same item using double coupons
  • Only 1 coupon will be doubled per item.
  • You must scan your shop your way rewards card to get your coupons doubled
  • You must have a minimum of $25 in groceries and pharmacy items before coupons are scanned in order for them to be doubled.
  • Kmart won’t give you overage.  If you have a $1.94 item and use $1/1 coupon, the coupon will double to take $1.94 off total, not $2 off.
  • Don’t checkout at customer service because they don’t have catalina machines.

Final prices reflect coupons being doubled!

Watch my Kmart coupon training video! if you’re new to Kmart extreme coupon shopping.

Shop Your Way Rewards Card: Must be scanned to get most deals/rewards at Kmart. Every 1,000 points is worth $1.00. These are easy to redeem – when you are checking out just say you’d like to pay with the rewards you have on your card. I just used $12 in rewards the other day!

*****Cuckoo “Stock Up” Prices are in Pink! ****Great prices are in black! If it’s in the ad and I didn’t list it here, I don’t think it’s a great price so don’t buy it unless you can’t wait for it to go on a better sale.

Grocery/Household (all household items scan as Grocery items at Kmart)
Get $5 Catalina wyb $10 in the following items (CONFIRMED: Catalina is ROLLING!)

    Biore and ban did not give me my 3,000 points and I bought this deal 5 times this week, cuckoo did you find out why? I called and got the run around, waiting on a call back from rewards people. Any feedback?

    • Deidre

      Nope, I have heard you have to be a bonus member signed up for their emails, I am one of those and have been for a long time, so I am not sure why I didn’t get mine either. Unless they just show up later, as one reader said may happen. But usually points show up right on your receipt.

      • Jesa808

        I also did this deal and did not get my points.  I called cust. serv. and they said that you have to spend $20 after couponswhich is just ridiculous!  Disappointed about that but at least I spent only 8.97 OOP and did get the $5 catalina.

        • Becki

           i didn’t get mine either so i went to cust and they said that they can put it on a GC……and with the betty crocker it was the same thing with it should only work after coupons or other discounts were taken off….good thing i asked after i got 4 boxes this week :D

          • Marjie

            I didn’t get my 3000 points either and I had use a $5 coupon on it along with the ban and biore coupons.  When I called they said it was because I had used the $5 coupons so I went back into the store and they put $3 on a GC for more.

        • Steve Gaunt

          They forwarded me up a level and I should be getting a email back about it just the same as Michelle. I’ll let you know if they respond positively.

        • Yadira

           I didn’t even get the $5 catalina

      • Mamasnook6206

        I went lasy wendsday and bought biore,and was shocked when i looked at all my receipts i had gotten the 3000 i didnt even know about it i also got the 10$ a 5$ and a 1$ coupon fron the deo.the 3000 points gives you a little receipt showing the reward

        • Deidre

          Mamasnook6206, did you use coupons on your transaction?

  • Cindy Perreira

    Thanks for putting together these GREAT Kmart scenarios.  I haven’t shopped at Kmart in ages, but after seeing your blog today, I thought what the heck, I’ll give them ONE more try (as my previous experiences there haven’t been very good).  And yeah! the scenario you listed worked like a charm!  Very pleased.  I am going back tomorrow to try another one that you put together for us!  Please continue to write about Kmart deals!  

  • Elizarae

    Thanks for putting together great Kmart scenarios for this week!  I had so much fun shopping at Kmart this week and spent very little thanks to you.  I’m looking forward to more great Kmart trips this week.  Please post any trips you do!

  • Elizarae

    Here’s one scenario I have planned for this week.  We’re in need of spreadable butter and I’m also trying to use up all my free milk coupons before they expire!
    Buy (4) Ziploc Storage Bags 8-100 ct. or containers 2-6 ct, 2/$5 = $10
    Buy (5) Lucky Charms 5/$10 = $10
    Buy (1) Country Crock spreadable butter 2/$5 = $2.50
    Buy (1) gallon of Milk $3.19
    Buy (1) Chex Mix = free item!
    Total: $25.69 (over $25 so my coupons will double)
    Use FREE Chex mix in-ad coupon
    Use (2) $1/2 Ziploc brand bags (from February Better Homes & Gardens) = $4 (both doubled)
    Use (1) $1/1 Country Crock butter printable = $2 (doubled)
    Use (1) $1/3 General Mills cereal (from 3/4 inserts?) = $2 (doubled)
    Use (2) $0.60/1 Lucky Charms (Smart Source printable) = $1.80 (one will double the other will not)
    Use FREE Milk wyb 3 breakfast items (Facebook) = $3.19
    Pay: $12.70
    Receive: $5 catalina
    Final cost: $7.70 for everything

    • Deidre

      Thanks for sharing

  • Msalazar91487

    Please let me know if this scenario would work!

    (4) Ziploc Bags = $10
    (1) All Detergent = $2.97
    (2) Clorox 2 Sprays = $2.79
    (1) Clorox 2 Detergent = $4.99
    (1) Glad Food Bag = $3
    (1) Free Chex
    Small filler???

    – (2) $1/2 Ziploc (doubled) = $4
    – (2) $1/1 Clorox 2 (doubled) = $4
    – (1) $1/1 Glad (doubled) = $2
    – (1) $3/2 All & Clorox2

    Total = $26.54 – $13 coupons – $5 Ban/Biore coupon = $8.54 OOP
    Get back $5 from Ziploc & $2.50 from Clorox2

    • Deidre

      Should work!

      • Msalazar91487

        Yay! Thank you so much for the quick reply and review!! And thank you so much for the awesome scenarios you post and such. Just had a baby 7 months ago so every little bit helps! Love your site!

      • Calgon_take_me2003

        there are 10.57 in clorox items?  or am i missing something?

        • Msalazar91487

          yes there is 10.57 in clorox, sorry. I meant 
          (2) Clorox 2 Sprays = $5.58. You need $9 or more to qualify for getting the $2.50 coupon. Did this scenario yesterday and it worked!

      • Msalazar91487

        cuckooforcoupons, why did you edit your original post?

    • Marjie

       Where did you get the $1/1 glad coupon?  I am not seeing it in any of my inserts.  Thanks

  • Lori McK

    Deidre, I LOVE your Kmart scenarios. I went yesterday and got some great deals with your help. I have a question about rainchecks and the $25 mark. My store was out of the Purex pacs that were 2/$5. I was able to get 2 – rainchecks for 5 products each (so I could double my coupons). Do you know what value will count when I go to use the rainchecks? I’m thinking $2.50 per pack as that was the sale price.

    • Hammysmommy

      At my store, they had a “regular price” tag under the purex pac 2/$5 sale tag, and I’m sad to say the regular price was $4.49.  Might be better to try and stock up on the all deal this week instead?

      • Lori McK

        I have rainchecks to get them for the $2.50 each price. I just wonder if the “shelf price” would register and count towards the $25 needed to double the coupons or if the “raincheck price” would register instead.

        • Hammysmommy

          Sorry, my brain was taking a vacation when I read your post lol!  I hope someone who knows for sure will answer.  I’d assume it was the raincheck price but I’ve never done a catalina with a rain check price.  So very smart of you to get the raincheck!

  • Tamra

    i use your  scenarios all the time this week I have a $10 coupon for grocery/drug store and a $4  catalina if I could use both I would pay OOP .37 and get the $5   :) even if they don’t let me OOP would still only be $4.37 so you know where i’m headed today ;)

  • Ivonnecoupons

    hi deidre… i’m thinking
    this would work but want to run it by (what do you think??)….BUY (4)
    ALL detergent = $11.88, (2) Ostoe Bi-Flex = $17.99 (these are BOGO so
    only pay for one) = $29.87 qualify for Q to double (-$8.00 for detergent
    and -$10 in Osteo Bi-flex Q i have =
    $11.87 oop). I just want to make sure my calculations are right for the
    Q to double after $25.00. I would also get the free general mills
    snack with the printable Kmart Q). My dad uses the Ostio Bi-Flex and
    i’m in need of detergent (not too concerned with the catalina’s, etc since i really just need this stuff). Feedback?!? :)

    • Deidre

      Is each ostoe bi-flex $17.99? Then it will work. If they are $8.99 each and you were timsing it by 2, it will NOT work. Because the total has to be $25 after “discounts” which means BOGO in-store promos etc… NOT coupons. Therefore, your total is $20.87 after the BOGO in-store promotions (if they are $8.99 each), so your coupons wouldn’t double.

      • Ivonnecoupons

         thanks!  the Osteo is $17.99 each – BOGO so i’m paying $17.99 for both becuase of it.  Awesome.  I’m not a huge Kmart shopper but this is rally great.  I appreciate the feedback!

  • Tamra

    I did your Kmart scenario this morning  and used a $10 CTR and a $4 Catalina  I paid OOP  .62 for everything :) I can’t thank you enough!!!!

    • Tracey

      Nice job! Was the $5 coupon a CRT or Catalina coupon? Thanks! 

      • Cindy Perreira

        I did the scenario for the Scott’s TP and Ziploc bags and I received $5 in the form of a Catalina.

  • Christina Paz435

    I didn’t get the 3,000 points either but I didn’t see it listed on my ad. I see that the 3000 reward points are available this week under that same Biore sale.

    • Deidre

      It’s in the monthly ad which is a separate one

  • Deidre

    Here’s my updates on Kmart so far this week:

  • Jamilynn17

    I went and did your scenario today,  my cashier couldn’t understand why the new barcode wouldn’t scan I explained it was new, but she kept trying to say that wasn’t the barcode. She finally just manually put it in then she didnt scan one of my ALL coupons and she told me she did lol. She was being nice , but I just gave up then it did not print my $5 catalina. So I had to go to the service desk  she printed it for me and said the Glade was not triggering it for some reason. Anywho I ended up paying like a $1 extra because of the ALL coupon but still worth it Thank you!!-

  • Tracey

    I tried buying the 6 pack of Kleenex for $9.99 and one single box of Kleenex for $1.99. There is a store coupon for $2 off the 6 pack of Kleenex, however it took $3 off my bill. Not sure if the coupon is programmed for $3 or if it took another $1 off because I bought a single pack or maybe I am missing something obvious? Anyway, I didn’t get the $5 cat, but wondering why. I am not a regular Kmart shopper, but my guess is that I was still under the $10 because of the store coupon or the single boxes aren’t working for this deal. On a happy note, I went to CS and tried to return the items and try again, but they just gave me $5. Yay! 

    • Tracey

      One more question! Since the $5 catalina coupon is a store coupon, we will be able to roll this? 

      • Deidre

        I rolled mine today

  • TJ

    I just figured out how I am going to use my $10 catalina from last week:
    (2) Glade Decor Scents = $6
    (2) Ziploc Storage Bags = $5
    (2) Tidy Cats Liter 10lb bag = $4.58
    (1) Arm & Hammer Toss N’ Done Single Use Laundry Tabs = $9.99(1) Chex Mix = Free
    Total = $25.57
    Use (2) $1/1 Glade Decor Scents Holder or Refills
    (1) $1/2 Ziploc brand bags
    (2) $1/1 Tidy Cats Liter
    Less doubled coupons ($10) = $15.57
    Get back $5 catalina and submit for Arm & Hammer $9.99 MIR (peelie)
    = $.58
    Since I will use MyGopher to order these items online, I will go through Ebates for 4% cash back and get $1.03; making this deal a $.45 money maker.

    • TJ

      Apparently the Arm & Hammer Tabs are too new to order through MyGopher so I will have to search for it in store and add it to my order. Should still be a money maker.

  • Ms Cardenas

    my kmart will not double my $1.00 coupon:-(


    ok, had aproblem with doing the all detergent, cashier said since the coupon states limit one coupon per purchase that i could use only one coupon and not the 3 like i wanted

    • Deidre

      I got 4 all’s in one transaction and they all scanned and doubled

  • Justina Deary

    I just had a pleasant surprise at kmart! Ziploc ended up being a 2.71 money maker for me!

    This is what I bought:

    1 ziploc vacuum pump 4.79
    3 ziploc bags              7.50

    1 Biore facial wipes      8.09
    1 St Ives Scrub            3.05
    GM Snack Mix            2.99

    Total before coupons = 28.42

    I used:
    4 $1/1 Ziploc vacuum brand (doubled to $2) – $8
    1 Free GM Snack Mix                               – $2
        *please note it took off $2, I didn’t notice until i got home. BEWARE

    Total OOP = 18.42 (I had a $10 CRT from last week, so I paid $8.42)

    $5 off $30 CRT from I HAVE NO IDEA! please let me know if you do! (excludes healthcare/beauty)
