Kmart’s ad is up and the store coupons & deals 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!
  • 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.
  • NEW IMPORTANT INFO! In order to stack Kmart in-ad coupons with manufacturer’s coupons, you MUST hand the Kmart coupons over first, then the manufacturer’s ones! The fine print on Kmart coupons means you can’t stack Kmart store coupons, it doesn’t have anything to do with manufacturer’s coupons.
  • SYWR Bonus Points Deals:  If  there is a deal such as “buy $20 in maybelline, get 5,000 bonus points” you must spend $20 after all coupons are scanned in order to get your points. SO after doing more testing, this is how I feel SYWR points work now. No Kmart “benefits” can be used on promos where you are trying to get points from buying certain items. No doubling of coupons, no adding on the freebies for the week, no getting $5 gift card, etc… so these promos are very hard to actually get your points.  But you can use manufacturer’s coupons on them, if it is a spend $20, get $5 promo, make sure to NOT spend $25 or your coupons will double and mess it up.  I am not sure why this works some weeks and not others, just will have to test it each week..
  • “Spend $50, get 5,000 SYWR Points”: If you have a CRT that says “spend $50, get 5,000 SYWR points” or any other amount of points, it is critical that you read this post on how to use it.  
  • Catalinas & CRT coupon offers: If  there is a deal such as “buy $10 in maybelline, get $5 coupon” you can spend $10 before coupons are scanned, bring your total down by scanning coupons below $10, and your coupon offer will print.
  • CRT’s: Can only use 1 per transaction, even if they are for different things.  Example: Can’t use a “$10 off your next shopping trip, from P&G CRT ” and a “get 5,000 SYWR points wyb $50 CRT” in one transaction.  You also can’t use a CRT and a Kmart catalina to pay for one transaction.
  • Expecting a catalina but it didn’t print? Contact catalina here or call 1-888-826-8766

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.

    There is a Savings club coupon for “$1/1 Angel Soft 12ct or larger” coupon at zip 77477

    • Elizarae

      That is an awesome coupon.  Thanks for sharing!

  • Sabrenaleigh

    Hi Deidre, I just wanted to let you know that the 70pg Notebooks are $.17 at walmart!  I picked up a few :)

    • add to the deals, thanks so much!

    • MaryPrz

      My Walmart had 70 pg notebooks for $ .42.  Unless they are scanning at a different price than the large bin stated.

  • Michelle

    Kmart jipped me out of my 5th picnic voucher because the catalina machine was out of paper.  I have been trying to work with the customer service desk to get my coupons, but they say they can’t do anything without a 5th voucher.  I am so frustrated, they are always messing up. When the coupon deals work at Kmart it is a great thing, but most of the time I have to struggle with them.  I wish I had your Kmart.

    • Cynthia

      I hav3 6 picnie vouchers if you would like me to sent it to you.  Just let me know if your want it. :) I have had problems in the past with Kmart in the past, but it is hard to not shop there because often they have amazing deals when they double coupons.

      • Cynthia

        Wow, I really must have issues with typing tonight.  I meant to say “I have 6 picnic vouchers and I am only needing 5 so I can send you my extra one.”

        • Katie

          if she doesn’t need it I do! I can trade you for some coupons if you would like!

          • Mblemonds

            I have 2 extras as well if anyone needs them!

          • jane11

            I have one. email if you still need one!

  • janene2003

    My stockpile of toilet paper & paper towels is plentiful so I’m going to save my $10 CRT’s for next week. 

    But when I go in to redeem my picnic voucher items I’m sure I’ll end up shopping for other stuff. 

    • Elizarae

      The $10 CRT expires 7/15, so be sure to use it next Sunday if you don’t plan on using it this week!

  • Rosa

    Kmart tonight: spent $43 saved $62, used 5 $1/1 coupons and a $5 gift card. Got a CRT for $5 in points but I didn’t include that in the total saved.

    • Shavon

       Do you mind to share what you got your colgate sensative toothpaste for? Was it on sale?

  • Zarismommy

    Heads up: My Kmart has the additional 50% off of already clearanced toys going on this week! Also, I’m in need of 1 more picnic voucher. If anyone has an extra one I could really use it. I’m willing to exchange for some coupons :) If anyone has an extra 1 and would be kind enough to send it to me, please e-mail me at – Thank you 

  • Elizabeth

    I have two picnic vouchers that I won’t be using, if anyone wants them, email me. i’m willing to trade for coupons.

  • Shavon

    Could you buy the 18 db roll Cottonelle as one of your items for the free Viva and then get the free wipes as well?? Anyone tried this as part of your purchase yet???

    • Elizarae

      This is part of my plan this week. It should work like you stated.

      • Shavon

         Sounds like a good plan!! I’m going to try this as well!!! I’m Cottonelle brand loyal so I jump on it when I can….and it worked out I’m also Viva brand loyal too!! But I’ve got a good stock pile of it back when they had those $2 off coupons in an insert in a local newspaper!!

        • Shavon

           Could I buy 2 Cottonelles and get two wipes?? Or is it just one free per purchase??

          • Elizarae

            I agree!  Cottonelle TP is great and I also love Viva!  My paper product stockpile is huge too, but I can’t pass it up when it’s a good deal.  You can only do the Cottonelle TP + wipes deal once per transaction.  So, you could buy 2 TPs, but you would only get 1 free wipes.

    • Should work!

    • Deborahtpc

      BTW…my cottonelle coupon is .50/2 4 packs or .50/1 9 pack or larger so should be able to use 2 of them if buying 2 18 double rolls making them 8.99 ea. with the free wipes!

  • Deborahtpc

    I am having such a hard time redeeming my vouchers. I am the only one that seems to have them and they don’t know what to do with them. When they scan it asks for an amount and they don’t know what to do. Anyone turned them in yet? If so, please let me know how the cashier did it. I don’t want to keep going back!

    • Cynthia

      My store had a really hard time with the them today too!!! Finally after many people saying “I don’t know,” I suggested scanning a voucher and then typing in the amont of 0.00.  They scanned all 5 vouchers and then typed in 0 each time.  After they hit total button, the coupons printed on the catalina machine.  I hope this helps. :)

      • Deborahtpc

        I suggested that to my store too, but it didn’t work.  I bet they only typed in one 0 so it didn’t work.  I am going back today and hopefully it will work.  It is crazy to me that the store has these promotions and when I try to redeem the vouchers, the managers will say to me “I didn’t even know this was going on.”  Really?????

        • Elizarae

          I made sure to go in when my favorite (knowledgable) manager was working today to redeem mine.  She had instructions from corporate that told them to scan each one and key in “001” ($0.01) for each one, then hit “Total”, then “Cash” twice and the coupons spat right out.  Good luck!

  • Samdot71010

    How do you have to redeem the vouchers? Do I have to make a purchase first and have them scan all of the vouchers and then have the catalina print and then use it on the next transaction? I have never used these kinds of vouchers before.

    • you don’t have to buy anything, just scan all vouchers, have them enter amount as $0, then the coupons will print

      • Jess

        Darn wish I would of known this earlier to save me the time. Every time the cashier scanned them she would enter the grand total amount of $16.04. Then it would set the register on fire and go haywire.

  • Shyang_81

    I’m soooo sorry….but what is a pinic voucher?? I’m new to kmart ….

    • It was a promo going on all of last month where if you spent $50 before coupons, you got a voucher, collect 5 & get a $20 value free picnic. It is no longer going on, you just have to have the vouchers and redeem them now. I will post about the next one they do, if they do another one.

  • Hopeellen7

    I only have three picnic vouchers.  Anyone have extra or need extra?

  • Brandy Pohl

    I need (1) family picnic voucher if anyone can spare one. I’ve got (3) FREE Dole Fruit Crisp coupons to trade and could find some other coupons off your ISO list. Please let me know ASAP since these need to be cashed in this week.  Thanks!

  • Mitch

    Can someone tell me where the 10$ P&G coupon came from?

    • Elizarae

      Last week, if you spent $30 on P&G products, you got a $10 CRT good toward grocery, health or beauty purchase this week.

  • Elizarae

    Can we use the FREE Picnic item coupons AND the $10 CRT in the same transaction or with the CRT beep?

  • sharalee stanton

    If anyone still needs a picnic coupon I have one extra.  Just email me at  The first one to email gets it :)

  • Farnjeni

    I had the hardest time at my K-mart last night while trying to redeem my picnic vouchers and do the free oop deal scenario.  The night manager is so uncooperative when it comes to coupons.  She couldn’t figure out how to validate the picnic vouchers so she did not want to honor them at all, not to mention my store doesn’t even carry the hot dog buns.  The cashier decided to just ring up the free picnic stuff minus the hot dog buns and tender it out.  The capri sun coupon then would not scan because she had already tendered out the total for the picnic stuff.  I was so upset after being there for almost 40 minutes while the tried to figure out how to do everything that I was just going to leave.  My cashier ended up ignoring the night manager and giving me the capri sun and just totaled me out before the night manger could step in.  Ugh, K-mart is such a hassle sometimes, I’m starting to wonder if I should just stop couponing there all around. Why don’t they educate the stores employees on how to work their promos?

    • Jess

      It was a hassle for me as well today. Held up the line for a good 30 minutes. It was another embarrassing time and my toddler was starting to act up for waiting so long. They had me grab all the merchandise they rang it up and tendered it as if I had paid cash. Then the cashier thought I was supposed to get 3 hot dogs, 3 buns, 3 chips, 3 sodas per voucher …so a grand total of 15 packs of hot dogs ..WHAT IN THE WORLD. I told her that is incorect and what would I do with sooo many hot dogs. Well I guess it’s good to hear i was not the only one having a hard time with the vouchers.

  • Farnjeni

    Also I have two extra picnic vouchers, if anyone doesn’t want theirs or needs mine let me know and we can trade coupons or whatnot.

    • Deborah Wheeler

      I have 4 of the picnic vouchers and I need only one more. Can I please have one? What do you need so we can make a trade? My email is

  • Srw27

    We went to Kmart last week & got a 20 cent off coupon for gas at Speedway for spending between $50-$99 in food & grocery.  Had we spent more than $100 we would’ve gotten a 30 cent off coupon (Shop Your Way Rewards Members only).  Cool!!!!!!

  • Elizarae

    FYI for anyone with FREE picnic item coupons– you may want to hang on to them!!!  It doesn’t say on the FREE picnic item coupons that you have to buy everything in one transaction and they don’t expire until 8/4/12 (that’s more than 3 weeks away)!  You could save them and use them during a week where there is a catalina promo (say spend $30, get $10 CRT) AND a $5 Kmart Award card for spending $50 promo.  The picnic items will help you get to the $50 you need, but you won’t need to pay for them!  I used the FREE Smart Sense chips voucher on its own last night to get my total to $25 and use my $10 P&G CRT:
    Bought (1) U by Kotex pads, $6.99
    Bought (2) Pup-peroni dog treats, $3.29 each BOGO = $3.29
    Bought (1) Cottonelle 18-double rolls toilet paper, $9.99
    Bought (1) Cottonelle moist wipes, free wyb Cottonelle 18-double rolls toilet paper
    Bought (1) Viva 2-pack paper towels, free wyb 2 participating Kimberly Clark items
    Bought (3) Smart Sense chips, $2 each = $6.00
    Bought (1) Capri Sun, free item w/ in-ad coupon
    Used FREE Capri-Sun in-ad coupon wyb $25 in grocery, health and/or beauty
    Used $1/1 U by Kotex pads (doubled to $2)
    Used (2) $1/1 Pup-peroni dog treats (doubled to $4)
    Used $1.50 off Cottonelle toilet paper and moist wipes
    Used $0.50 off Viva paper towels 2-pack or larger (doubled to $1)
    Used FREE Smart Sense chips picnic coupon
    Used $10 P&G CRT from last week
    TOTAL: $1.77
    Paid with $5 Kmart Award card from last week, so nothing OOP!  AND…I still have FREE item coupons for hot dog buns ($8.37 value), hot dogs ($2.97 value) and soda ($2.67 value) for a total of $14.01 that I can use in a future transaction during a better week of deals!

    • That deal idea just got even better with the new $1/1 Cottonelle coupons! Thanks for sharing!

      • Elizarae

        I know I’m so bummed I didn’t know about the coupon yesterday!  Oh well, still got a great deal!

        • Maddie

          So if Kmart accepted your .50 coupon on the free Viva, they should take the .50 coupon on the free Cottonelle wipes, right?

          • Elizarae

            Yes, that should work – what a great deal!

  • Bella

    I need one picnic voucher. If   anyone have extra please email me …  thank you very much.

    • I am all out but I hope someone sends you one!

      • Bella

        Thank you.
