Kmart – Round 2! Spent just 2 cents for 49 items!

by Nicole on September 28, 2009

So I decided to hit Kmart today again after finding some more great deals. I ended up paying just 2 cents for 49 items! At the end of the transaction they actually owed me money (because of the $5 off $50 coupon and the $5 instant reward for buying the 5 Special K products) so I went to get a candy bar and ended up owing just 2 cents! Make sure to also read this post to see how I got 32 items for just 7 cents yesterday!

Nicole, how do they double the BOGO – my store would not double the BOGO. Thanks for the info-I'm going tomorrow! Hope I can take advantage of some of the deals – I couldn't go over the weekend had a horse show!

Stop by the Ranch sometime – Coffee is always hot and the door is always open!

Hi Nancy: The thing with BOGO's is the rules don't say no BOGO coupons, they say they can't double on BOGO offers which I interpret to mean when they have their own BOGO sale. I've never had an issue with the BOGO coupons. I think it may be worth a call to corporate for clarification on your part though because there are some great deals with the BOGO coupons!

What area of the country are you in? I am in Broward County, Florida and I can't seem to find any stores that double coupons.

4 Christie September 28, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Are the cashiers mannually entering the value of the BOGO coupon twice or is this automatically just coming off at the register? I've never had a BOGO Q doubled. I did however purcahse one of their BOGO sales today and used 2 coupons and had no problem. Help!

5 Nicole @ Nicole's Nickels September 28, 2009 at 7:37 pm

Erin: I live in St Lucie County, Florida but was shopping in Palm Beach County. I do know that the store in Royal Palm Beach is doubling because I called there. That's not crazy far from Broward.

Christie: if your BOGO coupon is for an item under $2.00 then it should be fine. The cashier would scan the coupon, then it would do 1 of 2 things. On some of them it would ask the cashier to select the 2 items purchased and then double the coupon. On others it would ask the cashier to manually enter the price of one and then double the coupon. I didn't have an issue during either trip this doubles event and I also did it last doubles event at the Fort Pierce store and the Lake Park store several times over.

Thanks for that! I'm heading over to the Lake Park store tomorrow! I shopped at Royal Palm and Hypoluxo today, both are doubling but I used some BOGO coupons and they didn't double. My cashiers seemed a bit confused all the way around so that might have had something to do with it. The Lake park store is so much nicer that the 2 I was at today so I don't mind the drive. Thanks again :-)

Nicole, I love it! This is so inspiring to us all!

After all of the confusion with the event, my K-Mart stores are doubling all coupons up to $2. I live in the Jacksonville area.

Hi Nicole. My store will only double 10 coupons per purchase. I am looking for inexpensive filler items to reach the $50 purchase. That way I'll get $5 extra off. Do you know if K-Mart sells the Sara Lee Deli Selects? If they do, do you know much they are? I thought I could use the $3 off coupons. Thanks! You rock. :)

I think that I'm confused. I am going to the Lake Park store later today. Does the cashier double the coupon, or do we need to actually bring 2 coupons in??

I was trying to find the starbucks coupon but I couldn't find it. Is there a certain area code I should put in to get to it?

Thanks so much

Anon – Try this link for the Starbucks coupon –

Jennifer: The coupon will automatically double when the cashier scans it. I get 2 copies of the paper so I always have at least 2 coupons to use for these things!

Anon: I don't think my store had the Sara Lee meat but I wasn't specifically looking for it.

Hope everyone's trips today went well!

Made 2 trips to the Lake Park store yesterday. Got $126 worth of items for $5.04!

It would have been less but on my 2nd trip (in the evening) the cashiers had all been instructed to limit it to 10qs so I couldn't use my 2nd $5.

I also got 2 – $5 off of a $5 purchase and a $2 off your next purchase coupons! So Kmart basically paid me to shop :-)!

Going to pick up more pet food today, the strays I feed are going to be very happy!

I am so disappointed that none of the K Mart stores in the Columbus,GA area are participating in the double coupon deal.
