Kmart Doubles Starting on 7/25

Yawn… Kmart has decided to turn down the heat on things even more and double coupons with a face value up to 99 cents starting on 7/25. If you have been shopping at Kmart for a while, like I have, you know that the mark up on things makes this a non-event. But who knows, I am sure there may be some deals to be had. You could probably count them with the fingers on one hand. See the list of participating stores here. Thanks Marcia!

so, what do you think about this doubling event?

    I think that the SoftSoap hand soap are $0.89.- and I have the $0.50 coupon… They double this coupon to $1.00? Even if the SoftSoap cost less?

    Lame, lame, lame. It’s sure not going to make me go out of my way to go to Kmart- shoot for a good bit of the doubling up to $2 coupon events, it wasn’t worth it. :/.

    I live in New England where prices can be higher on many things, but every grocery store in my area doubles manufacturer coupons up to 99 cents, so there is no incentive to bother with this.

    It looks like the days of old are gone for good. It was a great program back in the good ole days when there were no restrictions. RIP KMart Super Doubles…………

    I’ll pass.

    You made me laugh out loud with the counting the deals on one hand :D

  • Mandy

    I’m done with K-mart, except for their awesome toy clearance once a year.

    I got an e-mail with a cpn for a $25 gift card to transfer a prescription- and Kmart is one of the places I haven’t transferred mine around to yet. So i’m gonna check and see if any good deals are be had and use that gift card….

    I will not be doing this. The K-mart by me is about 25 miles away. It was worth it when they doubled $2.00 coupons, but this is not. At least double coupons up to a $1.00, but .99 cents, really!?! Then only 5 on top of that. We have Pick N Save around here too, so 5 coupons up to a $1.00 in value can be doubled. I don’t think KMart is going to get very much foot traffic specifically for this promo.

    Ridiculous. Even the last super double event (up to 2.00) made me NEVER want to step foot in Kmart again. So many of my coupons would not double, some of them wouldn’t even ring up at all. The cashier could care less. I am shopping exclusively at RiteAid from now on (which is the only other store besides Vons where I live). I NEVER have problems with my coupons there – even when stacking. Plus I get 20% off everyday w/ my wellness+ card. Good bye Kmart.

    i’ll still go to Kmart since I work just down the road from it. Even though my trips will be short and sweet if the deal is good, the 10 minute stop before work was worth it IMO. I definitely would not drive out of my way 25 minutes but the 2 minute drive is nothing. My Kmart associates are super nice too and I can usually do 3 transactions at a time per day with my RR card, my husband’s, and my mom’s so it’s worth it. It does stink that they are decreasing the doubling coupon value and again limiting the items per transaction to five….

  • Jennifer

    Yeah, I will NOT be checking out this deal at Kmart! It’s so funny to me though that they are only doubling up to $.99, seeing as most coupons are either $.50 or $1! Kmart has been struggling for years and honestly, the one in my area, I cannot believe it is still open! Anytime I go in there, I am not exaggerating when I say that there are probably 5 customers in the whole store! Anyway, BOOOO Kmart deals! :(

    I can actually walk to Kmart from my house and I haven’t been in there since I began couponing and realized how expensive everything is. I do much better going to Target or Walgreens even if I have to use up gas getting there!

    Our Kmart never does Super Doubles, and even if they did, I wouldn’t go unless they would double a coupon higher in value than $0.99!

    Some of the 14 oz. boxes of cheerios had a 1.00 off coupon on them. They are on sale for 2.00. This equals 1.00 without the double. I also found Sunny D drinks on sale for 1.00. .25 coupon in 5/2 SS.

    My local Kmart is doing the doubling. GM cereal is $1.99 so I plan to go in and use my $0.75 GM coupons and have them doubled. This will make each box only $0.50. Otherwise, I don’t really shop at Kmart. I thought I’d try it this time.

    I have a .75 coupon for wheaties, but I guess they don’t carry wheaties. I was able to get 4 of the Sunny D’s in one visit and they doubled all 4 coupons. My Kmart opens at 8 AM and they don’t have a register open until after 9 AM. You have to go to the service desk to make a purchase before 9 AM. 9 AM only one register opens. In the evening only one register is open. . . . Talk about a lot of business!
