How to Use the “Spend $50 get 10,000 or 5,000 SYWR Points” CRT Coupons!

I have finally figured out how to use the “spend $50 get 10,000 points” CRT coupons!! Sometimes it is “spend $50 get 5,000 points”.  Listen up folks, here’s the rules:

  • First get to over  $50  before adding in any taxes and after all Kmart Store Coupons are scanned, and after factoring in any “free items” because those can’t count towards your $50.  Not CRT’s and catalinas, you can scan those later, just in-store Member coupons such as the weekly free item coupon, and other in-ad coupons.
  • Your total need to be over $50, not including taxes.
  • Do NOT use points to pay for any part of a purchase where you are trying to earn more points!
  • Do NOT factor in prices on BOGO 50% off or BOGO FREE items before their discounts, the price after discounts is what will apply
  • Then scan your CRT for spend $50 get 10,000 points or 5,000 points (varies depending on what prints for you)
  • Then you can scan manufacturer’s coupons and get below $50.  Some stores will let you use catalinas now too, but my store will not let you use any catalinas with a CRT offer.
  • Then you’ll get your points right on your receipt when it prints out.
  • Proof? View my receipt doing just that here – I swiped a “Spend $50 get 10,000 points” CRT and my total OOP was $37 and I got my 10,000 points on my receipt!

$5 Kmart Award Cards are Triggering This Week!

UPDATE: Reader Jenn said “My store has signs up saying that you get a $5 reward card for spending $50 from 5/1 – I believe it was 5/12, but I not totally for sure on the end date.”  So probably everyone who spends over $50 will have their register prompted to activate a $5 Kmart rewards cards.  The register prompts the cashier and they activate your card right then, so it doesn’t matter if your total goes below $50 after coupons.  This has happened in previous weeks but was advertised in their ad, this is the first time it happened and wasn’t even advertised.

I was shocked out of my mind today when the machine triggered the cashier to give me a $5 Kmart award card (which is a $5 kmart gift card)!  I didn’t ask for it; I didn’t know that promo was going on this week.  Perhaps it started today, 05/01 with the new month?  I can’t see it in any ad but I was super happy about it!  ‘

Here’s my transaction (as shown in the picture above) from today:

Important $1/1 Pepsi Coupons Note: My total would be $16.03 if they didn’t take my Mt. Dew & Diet Mt. Dew coupons, so if you decided to do this deal, I would leave those at home as even though the CIC hasn’t listed them on the Fraud Coupon List, they aren’t scanning so I am not sure they are legit.  When mine didn’t scan, I told the cashier to skip them and he insisted he manually enter them in, and I noticed he manually entered them in as $1 each but the computer automatically doubled them.  Anyways, I didn’t feel right using coupons that wouldn’t scan but he insisted to enter them and he did it too quick really to stop him.
