Kmart Super Doubles on 8/30: Last One?

kmartlogoOh dear, I just heard the most devastating news for the bargain shopper in me:  This next round of Kmart Super Doubles that starts on 8/30 will be the last one!    According to My Frugal Adventures, who took the time to contact Kmart THREE times to verify this, this next round of Kmart Super Doubles will be the last for a while.  She was told super doubles wouldn’t be back until possibly 2010.

I can’t tell you how sad this set of news makes me.  I have been shopping each and every Super Doubles event available in my area since it started almost a year ago.  I have also been able to save a lot of money and help my family and others with all the stuff I have gotten there for nearly free.  It is not too late for you to get ready for this next round (Wisconsin readers I hear stores that participated this last round are participating again).  Check out my list of freebies and rock bottom bargain buys.  Start printing coupons from Coupons.com, Smartsource and Red Plum, and it is also not too late to order from coupon clipping services like The Coupon Clippers.

Not sure if your store will be participating?  The folks over at HCW have this list of stores participating in the following states: AZ, CA, CO, GA, FLA, IL, IO, IN, KS, KY, MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, ND, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, SD, TN, VA, WI and WV.

    I knew it! I knew when I called and they told me there would be two in one month that it might be over for a while. Perhaps we need a petition again – it worked on Roundy’s! 😉

    I was pretty darned stocked up last time, but you can bet I’m going to get enough now to make sure it sees my family, my parents, and my aunt and uncle through the end of the year now for certain. *sigh*

    Well, at least the WI readers still have PnS/Copps and their doubles…perhaps Kmart will start doing other promotions?

    The lists that I have seen all say that the closest KMart is participating, but I couldn’t find ANY mention of it in their ad that came this week.

    With that attitude that some of them had last time, I worry that if I call to confirm they might play dumb or tell me wrong, so I’m wondering if I should just go and take my chances even though I can’t verify their participation with the ad.

  • Mercedes I called 5x just to be really, really sure 🙂 Melissa- I had a lot of readers that had problems with stinky Kmart service last go and I was told by customer service today to bring the phone number and call them from the store with any problems. They are open 7 days a week. 866-562-7848- You can also call that number to confirm your store is included.

  • it is misleading for them to say that TN is included. The only store in TN that is included is the one in far far far east TN which is a good six hours from me here in Nashville. and if you are trying to get there from Memphis? HAH! just forget it – tht is like a 10 hour trip.

    What are the rules for the super doubles?

  • That is a shame the Kmart Super Doubles will be ending soon. We don’t get it here anyway but I could imagine that it would be a great incentive.

  • Whew! Two of mine are listed. I was so worried I’m miss this last round. I already told the hubby….I’m getting a game plan together for this one, the kids are all yours for awhile on Saturday! 🙂 Good bonding time, right? 🙂

    I hope ours also has a Nerf gun still in stock. My son loves those and we wanted to get him one for Christmas.

    I read on another blog that they would be doing this now every other week….hmmm. Wonder where that info came from?

  • I live in Washington State and we’ve been left out for MONTHS now. I don’t know why we’re continually left out.

    I also have to add…my first doubling trip was last Nov…I was able to double up to 75 coupons at that time. I know you can’t double that many now…isn’t it more like 15 or so? Hmmm. When you see drastic changes like that, it makes you wonder if the whole thing is coming to an end….

    I will miss the Kmart double coupons. I bought lots of things dirt cheap and got alot of things free. Additionally, I also was able to get a bunch of free rebate/gift card/product offers from Kmart / PG / Kelloggs / Unilever in the process. I had very few problems along the way.
