Huggies Diaper Deal at Kmart

huggies2

I just wanted to update you on the catalina deal going on at Kmart and how it worked for me today.  I did just get back from my store where I did the following two transactions:

$49.95 five Huggies Jumbo packs
$2.99 one tub of wipes
=$52.94
$5 Kmart $5 off $50 coupon
-$15.00 (five $1.50/1 coupons doubled)
-$2 (one $1/1 coupon doubled)
=$30.94 plus tax out of pocket and I got a $14 off your next order catalina back

Then I pretty much did the same transaction but used the $14 catalina to lower my out of pocket expense. For the second transaction I paid $16.94 plus tax out of pocket and got another $14 catalina back. In total I paid around $40 for ten packs of diapers and two tubs of wipes or around $4 per pack after coupons and catalina. Once I submit for The Caregivers Marketplace rebate, it’s like paying $3.25 per pack. I’ll be honest and say that this is more than I would pay for diapers. BUT I am very well stocked on diapers and I have set a price of $2 to pay per pack of diapers. However, if you do not have the type of stockpile of diapers that I have, this is a very good price to pay.

In conclusion, the catalina prints even when using coupons and even when using the catalina in your next purchase to buy more diapers. This promotion was tagged all over my store and again the effective dates where from 5/31 to 7/13.

    Do you know if you can use the $5 off $50 coupon plus a catalina coupon for whatever amount off your next purchase in the same transaction?????????

    • Hi Sonya,

      In my second transaction I used the $5 off and the $14 catalina together in the same transaction. For some reason the $14 catalina wouldn’t go through but she pushed it through.

      Edited to add: I don’t think it beeped because I used the $5/$50 Kmart coupon.

  • Sarah

    I have to ask. How do you get diapers cheaper than $3.25/pack?

    • Hi Sarah,

      By combining sales, catalina promotions, register rewards or extra care bucks deals plus coupons.

    Where did you get that many huggies coupons? I love Huggies, but can never seem to find great deals on them.

    • Hi Sarah,

      I actually had quite a few coupons I got mailed from the huggiesbabynetwork.com.
      The week that huggies coupons came out I bought 4 newspapers and I also have family and friends save coupons for me. Because diapers is a thing my family uses a lot I am always signing up to get coupons by mail, ask family and friends for them if they don’t need them. If there’s a printable coupon I always print them. I actually have quite a bit more to use if I wanted.

    I also did this deal only I bought 5 pull-ups and 1 40 ct wipe for 1.99. Since I bought pull-ups I used the $2 coupons to bring my total per pack $2.19 (-.75 caregivers rebate = $1.44). I was wondering if the catalina’s would roll, so thanks for that info.

  • Tricia

    Do you know if Huggies Little Swimmers are included in the catalina deal?

    • Hi Tricia,

      Yes, they are and they were $7.99 at my store regular price.

  • kim

    I have 2 of the $5/1 pull-ups…. I am hoping this will bring OOP way down!!

  • Don’t your 1.50/1 coupons double to $3? If so then it would be-$15 and you actually are getting a better deal?

    • Hi Shannon,

      Thanks for letting me know. I was having dinner when I noticed my math error and then forgot to fix it. Fixed now.

    It is good to know that this deal worked for you guys. As for me…it was one of the biggest problems i’ve had since starting these money saving techniques. The $14 Q didnt print for me and they did not want to give it to me. I was sooooo furious and still am. They were telling me that I had to buy 3 different items and it couldnt be all huggies pull ups….can you beleive it??!! I told them and even showed them that nowhere on the ad did it state that info for this promotion. well in the end i left without my $14 but with there names and will be contacting corporate. So wish me luck everyone.

  • Robyn

    I swear between this deal at Kmart (I live in WA no doubles here) and the CVS deal (no CVS in WA state) I’m very sad. I’m glad you guys are getting to save on diapers, they can really eat into the finances! Mercedes, you are truly a rockstar, I’ve got to get that $2 a pack thing down…

  • Thanks for the breakdown! I’ll be doing the deal later this week, and I’m just sending readers here to find out how you did this 🙂

  • Carrie

    Thank you for posting this deal…I’m planning to try it out tomorrow as we need diapers! 🙂

  • Lana

    Tigerfreak21, the same thing happened to me. My cashier was SUPER nice and was all empathetic about trying to save as much money as possible. She was not aware of the promo going on (though there were signs everywhere around the store …. and right by the Huggies). But she said, “Sounds like a great deal. Who can beat that….especially on double coupon day.” But then, the catalina didn’t print out. She verified the deal on a sign and then went to customer service to see what was wrong. The lady there didn’t seem to know about the deal either and went to “check it out” by the diapers. When she came back she said it was because I used coupons. I said, “I didnt’ see that stated anywhere on the signs or ads.” She said, “Sorry. Sometimes they get you that way to get you to buy stuff and then it’s not as good a deal as you thought, huh?” She was nice and all, but I was frustrated. I was in a hurry so I took the stuff anyway and asked if I could return them later if I wanted. The said yes. But what I was ticked about was that I had planned then to buy $50 more of stuff in a second transaction, use double coupons again (and the lady said I could use my $5/$50 again too) to bring the total down to around $15. If I had had that catalina, I would have spent like $1 instead of $15. I ended up doing that transaction anyway, but was pretty miffed that I had to spend that much OOP. What number do I call to get this fixed or how do I go about getting my catalina since obviously it should have worked now that I come and read that other people were successful. HELP!

    • Hi Lana,

      I would call Kmart corporate. Chances are very good either the cat machine was not working. It’s a corporate wide promo, so it should work for everyone, unless something at the store level doesn’t work (like a catalina machine being off or broken).

  • Michelle

    Were you allowed to use more than 10 coupons today when you were at K-Mart?

    • Hi Michelle,

      Yes, I asked the supervisor in chrge and my store is not limiting # of coupons doubled.

      Mercedes

  • Lana

    Mercedes,
    Thanks. I will try.

    Michelle,
    I had forgotten about the 10 coupon limit. Yep, I used about 20 with no problem. Cashier didn’t blink an eye and the register accepted them all. It’s probably up to the cashier to enforce. Luckily I had a great cashier.

  • Becky

    Gosh, I wish my Kmart were doubling coupons…too bad for me…but awesome deal for you!

  • vivian

    I did this deal last week without the coupon doubling… but still have a lot of the two dollars off of pull-ups left, would you happen to know if those would double to four dollars off?

  • CashAholic

    Great post. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • I did this deal today and it printed out the $14 catalina. My second transaction, I bought all qualifying items again but used the $14 from trans #1 and this time it didn’t print the $14. Now I am afraid to roll these tomorrow? has anyone else experienced this? Of course they didn’t know anything about it but after awhile the service desk returned everything and then re-did it which produced the $14. any Tips for me??! I can’t stand at the service desk with a 2 year old for an hour again tomorrow!!!

    • Heidi,

      The cat prints right after the cashier hits total and before any coupons get scanned, so that you didn’t get it the second time has nothing to do with “rolling this.” Did you use the same register? Did you buy the same items? my guess you either bought an item not included in the promo, your total was less than $50 or the catalana machine was not working properly.

  • Mercedes-

    I did (3) Huggies for 9.99 plus (2) Pull Ups for 9.99 and (1) Edge shave gel for $1.99. It must have been her machine I am guessing? Tomorrow I will go to a DIFFERENT lane! Thanks!

  • Meichelle

    Where do I get the 5 off 50 coup?

  • I ended up not being able to use the $5 off $50 because the cashiers were strictly enforcing the 10 coupon limit. Kinda silly, if you ask me, because they said they had no problem with doing multiple transactions per customer. So I had to break up my items into 4 separate transactions. Fortunately, there weren’t a ton of people in the store or I’m sure I would have been holding up the line.

  • Andrea

    This was an awesome deal! And from what I saw, it runs through July, so here’s hoping they do another double Qs with this!

    I got 2 big 216 ct wipes, 2 travel wipes, 2 regular wipes, and 8 packs of diapers for Liam and the new baby that’s coming for $37.68! And the best part was, I got to use one Cat right away on a new crockpot since mine went the way of the local landfill a few months ago. I need more Huggies coupons…I gotta do this again!

  • Becky

    Grr… didn’t go so well for me! Several of my coupons mysteriously didn’t double… believe me, I had *kind* words with the manager about that one… and I only got $7 off instead of $14 because she said it was tallied AFTER all deals and coupons! WHAT?!?!?!? HOW come it works for everyone ELSE?! Sigh. I still got a pretty good deal, but it could have been WAY better.

  • Michelle

    I did this deal twice today, but ended up paying more, about $4 something per pack, for two reasons: 1)the jumbo packs were $10.99 at my store (instead of 9.99), and 2)the second transaction would not allow BOTH the $14 catalina and the $5/$50 coupon because they were both purchase-based coupons, and you’re only allowed one per transaction (although it did roll out another catalina). The catalina says, “Save $14 off your next $14 or more shopping order,” so it’s definitely purchase-based. I’m guessing that’s why it beeped for you Mercedes, but you got lucky. My cashier did not push it through… bummer. I’m thinking about returning a few packs tomorrow because the deal didn’t turn out to what I’d hoped for.

  • Jenna

    how do you qualify for the caregives rebates? from briefly scanning the website, it seems i wouldn’t. but just in case, i thought i would inquire with you to see if i am missing something.
    i am going to try this huggies deal this week, so i hope i have a pleasant experience and it all works out for me!

    • Hi Jenna,

      The only qualifier you need is that you purchase the required products and that you are taking care of someone. Taking care of your children counts.

      Mercedes

  • I went to Kmart today too but the Catalina didn’t print out for me either. There weren’t any signs around the store and the cashier didn’t know about the deal either. I bought three Nr. 1 Huggies and two Nr. 2 plus some wipes. Is it possible that NJ Kmart stores don’t offer the deal? Can I still try to get the catalina otherwise?

  • Renee

    I did this deal this morning (3 packs of diapers, 2 packs of pull-ups, and 1 pack of wipes) and got the $14 cat. Then I planned another scenario that included, 3 x Oust, 3 x Axe Shampoo, 1 x pack of diapers, 1 x pack of pullups, 4 x Pledge duster refills and a few other things. I had it worked out so beautifully so I could use the $14 cat from the previous transaction and the $5/50 coupon and pay like $3 in tax, but after she scanned all my coupons and tried the $14 one it said reward not allowed. My total was enough, so it must be what Michelle said about not being able to use both. So, these cats will roll, but you can not use the 5/50 coupon and the $14 coupon together. I did still get my $14 cat though, so it’s all good.

  • Renee

    Oh, and I also got a movie ticket cat for buying the 3 Axe, so it was really good.

  • Erin F

    worked great I got 5 packs of pulup and saved four off each due to doubling Q’s and then also the $5/$50 AND got the $14 coupons back and turned right around and used it lol I don’t think my cashier would have cared if I used more than 10 q’s but I wanted the best deal lol

  • I didn’t realize until I was checking out that my store wasn’t doubling the coupons…bummer!! I should have checked! Also, I didn’t realize until I was in the car that the cashier ran my $3 off 2 huggies as only $1.50 off. GRrrrr! Lost $3 right there. The screen was so dingy that I couldn’t see what the coupons were scanning for. So frustrating! But I am happy to get the $14 cat. thanks for this tip. 🙂

  • THERESA Z

    Mercedes thanks!!Duumb question though..How do i do that???THanks!!!!

  • Michelle

    I tried this deal on Sunday. I had the required number of items and I didn’t get the catalina either. They told me it was because I used coupons. So I returned everything and went about my day! I was already a little irritated because they had several items clearanced that would had been free for me, but they wouldn’t let me use my coupons (because then I would have gotten them free!) GASP! I just told them KMart was expensive and I could get a better deal elsewhere with my coupons. So I made them give me everything back. And they did. Now I am a little embarrassed to show my face at that KMart again! 😉

  • I’ve done the deal twice with no trouble getting the $14 Catalina. They wouldn’t let me use the $5/$50 and the $14 together. BUT I stopped at Jewel today and asked if they’d take the $14 Catalina from Kmart (since they accept the walgreen’s RR) and they said yes! So I’ll just pay a little more oop and use the $5 at kmart and pay less for groceries at Jewel.

  • GG

    Last time Kmart double coupons, I tried to use a $5/$50 coupon and they did not let me, my total was more than 50 dollars so I try that coupons first, but when they saw my other coupons they said I could not use that coupon with any other coupons (they were manufacturer coupons), they call the manager and everything and they were very rude to me. Very frustrating!!! What should I do? Thanks

  • Freebies Finder

    On the coupons it should state that they are valid at all Kmart locations.
