My Kmart Double Dipping Transaction

kmartlogo

Just wanted to share with you guys the two transactions that I did this evening at Kmart.  I wanted to do the double dipping Holiday/Spend $50 catalina promotions. I also wanted to turn around and get some cheap toilet paper while there was a promotion for it. This is what I did:

$12 six boxes of 15 ct Gallon size Ziploc Holiday Bags
$9.98 two Glade Holiday Reed infusers
$4.49 one Tide Stain release 10 ct
$19.99 one box of Huggies diapers
$10 four 2 oz Glade candle
$5 two Pledge wipes packs
=$61.46 subtotal before taxes
-$5 when I used $5/50 kmart coupon
-$6 two $1.50/2 Ziploc printable coupons doubled
-$4 two B2G1 Ziploc tearpad coupons
-$8 two $2/1 Glade Reed infuser coupons from Kmart coupon booklet doubled
-$10 four free glade candle coupons
-$4 two Pledge printable coupons doubled
-$2 Tide release coupon doubled
-$2 Tide Stain release discount at register
-$19.99 FREE box of Huggies diaper coupon I had
= -$0.47 plus tax out of pocket and got one $12 and one $5 catalinas.

THEN I had to get some Charmin while it’s cheap and I had good coupons for it:

$26.97 when I bought three big packs of Charmin
$4.49 Tide Stain release
= $31.46 subtotal before taxes
-$6 three $1/1 Any Charmin homemailer coupons (from samples)
-$2 Tide release coupon doubled
-$2 Tide Stain release discount at register
-$12 coupon from previous transaction
=$9.96 plus tax out of pocket and got another $5 catalina off my next purchase.

So, I spent $10.43 plus tax out of pocket and still have $10 in catalinas to use. The best part is that I bought our favorite toilet paper (54 big rolls!) for pretty much FREE!  Sorry for the lack of photo with all of my goodies, but did I mention I am 39 weeks pregnant?  I am sure you understand!

    The KMart in Hartford, WI does double BOGO coupons, and there is not a limit to 10 coupons doubled either. I saved $82.00 in coupons today when I shopped there. My total for everything was $14.85, and I got a catalina for $5.00 off your next, a @ for $2.50 off holiday candy, and a .50 cent off coffee mate coupon.

    I went to go use my rewards that I got from this transaction. I picked out a birthday card for my Mom, the coffee Mate (free after dbld), and a bag of candy. The candy didn’t work. She thought that I might have had to wait for Christmas, or something. I just held onto the Q. I don’t really care if I used it right away or not. It doesn’t expire until the end of November anyway. Anyway, after she rang these few items up. She asked me for .49 cents. I gave it to her, and she seemed a lil puzzled. she said it won’t take it. She found out that they actually owed me .49 cents. I just bought a bottle of water, and then paid the difference. I have never had that happen before, though. I am so excited! I am finally a true couponer! I just started doing this a few mos ago.

    The cashiers were really nice. They were laughing, and watching the total go down, and asking ME for tips. Thank you K Mart for making my day, and thank you to the cashiers that were really nice, and didn’t treat me like I was robbing the store. I have left stores crying before.

    Really good day!!!!!

    I am going to try, and leave some of the things that I was able to get for free in order to help others. I do not keep track of dates of when the coupons came out, or where I get them all from, though.

    I got free:
    Nescafe Taster’s Choice single serve packets.
    Nestle Coffee Mate packets.
    Ziploc bags, on sale 2 for $4.00 (any)
    glade refillables 3+1 bonus pack, Clean Linen ones on sale 2 for $5.
    reeses peanut butter cups
    Dry Idea roll on deodorant (I have had $2. printables for a while now. I do not think they are still available).
    Kotex Pantiliners (charity)

    Things I saw that you can get for free, or really cheap with coupons:
    Suave Professionals 2 for $3.
    Halls cough drops, can’t remember price. They would have been free with the .75 cents off MC, though.
    Pert Plus small 3.49 (-$1.50MC), big 4.99 (-$2MC)
    Rimmell Mascara (-$2. MC). They were all gone when I got there,
    though.
    Tag Deo, or spray $3.89 (-$2 off Q in 8/30 P&G). P&G pulled there insert from the Milwaukee Journal for the 8/30 insert, so I never got one. I got this last weeks one in the mail, though.

    I also did this deal:
    All 2X $5.65 x 2=$11.30/2-$1, so $4. off=$7.30
    Snuggle liquid softener $3.25/1-$1, so $2. off=$2.50
    All 2X big bottle $11.00/1-$2, so $4. off=$7.00

    Spent $16.80 on, and got back a $5.00 catalina. $11.80 on 2 bottles of All, 1 bottle of Snuggle, and 1 of the really big bottle of All is not bad!

    I also did the Special K deal too.

    Sorry for writing a book on your site. I would just really like to be able to help people know what is all out there. I wish that I had the know how, or the time to have my own blog. Maybe someday! I just started couponing maybe 3 to 4 mos ago.

    Thank you so much!!! 🙂

    Great JOB!! I wish I could get to where you are someday. I am saving some $$ but not like that!

  • Pam

    Hi! Hope your getting along well! Your getting so close! I wish you the very best delivery and recovery.

    Hey … what would work instead of the Huggies?

    • Hi Pam,

      If you have any of the Kmart coupon booklets you could replace the huggies with more of the reed infusers. $0.99 each after doubled coupon. if you have access to enough computers get more ziploc? Some glade candle tins are $1.50 and they have coupons inside them. Also, some nature’s source bottles have coupons for $1/1 and they are $2.99 each. Your OOP will be a little more depending on the coupons but the $17 in cats should help offset that.

    Very disappointed our Kmarts near us don’t do double coupons. I thought about driving up to my sister’s to go to her Kmart because they double but I didn’t see a post with enough good coupons that I had to make it worth it.

  • Kara

    What is this?

    -$2 Tide Stain release discount at register

    Coupon, automatic discount, etc? I wanted to try this product and with the coupon and discount, it makes for a fantastic deal!

    • Hi Kara,

      This is an offer advertised in the monthly sales ad. I also mentioned it on my coupon match up post earlier this week. Automatic $2 off any Tide Stain release (limit one per transaction). I have been buying the cheapest which is the 10 ct packs.

  • Governorgirl

    Any idea if the $12 coupon will roll if your purchase another $50 of the qualifying products?

  • WOW, that is awesome! It makes me wish we had a KMart nearby!
