    Thanks for the tip. I’ll use it when updating http://www.codecoupondiscount.com/

  2. Sabrina says:

    They sure did change it! That makes me even more mad because they are trying to say we were frauding them??!?!?!

  3. Jenn says:

    The KMart in western colorado would not accept any coupons in addition to the $10 off of $20.

  4. Tina says:

    when you pull up the coupon now it showa that its valid at Chicago locations and t has those locations listed. When I printed it yesterday it waws different. So I guess they changed it. I used 3 of them yesterday so im greatful. Kinda relieved that its gone, otherwise I would be at Kmart everyday LOL.

  5. Margaret says:

    This is PRECISELY why I hate KMART!!! Don’t post a coupon and then call fraud when people use it!!!

  6. Sophie says:

    Funny how they are telling some people it is fraudulent and then telling other people it is only valid at certain locations. Major contradiction!!! They just need to own up to the fact that they made a mistake and pulled the coupon.

  7. alexis says:

    In Rexburg they have signs up saying they can’t accept the coupon because it is only valid in New York and Chicago … so yea for them, bummer for us. In a way I’m almost relieved because if they kept accepting it I think I’d be at Kmart every day until May!

    • Sabrina says:

      What they aren’t saying is it says right on the coupon it’s “Valid At All Kmart Store Locations” I told that lady on the phone this morning too. They need to own up! lol

  8. Stacy says:

    I called the 866-kmart4u customer service before I packed up the babies and headed down with the coupon and they apologized profusely but said the coupon was not valid, it is apparently fraudulent. So congrats to those that have already used it but this deal will be short lived once communication has filtered to store level. I knew it was too good to be true :(

  9. Sabrina says:

    Well I was basically told the same thing. There were 3 of us taking up all 3 registers and I didn’t know the other people, we were all told to come back. Called back and they told me in was for NYC only. Well if that’s the case there’s 2 one also for Chicago. It states clearly ON THE COUPON ITSELF that it is Valid at all Kmart Store Locations. Then they tried to tell me it came from Coupons.com. It starts with a Kmart.com/ on the URL. Anyways I didn’t get to do this either. Hooray to all who did. :(

  10. abby says:

    My K is refusing this coupon; the manager is carrying around an email from corporate to justify the refusal. . . . rolla, mo

  11. Mandi says:

    ** The Coupon is no longer being accepted at the Boise K-mart on Fairview ** They said the coupon is not for their store.

  12. Jill says:

    Kmart does not let you use both the Catalina and the $10/20 coupons in the same transaction. They are both considered KMart savings coupons and therefore cannot be combined. It clearly states that on both the catalina and the $10/20 coupon. These ended up being awful deals without being able to combine the 2 coupons. I was so disappointed.

  13. Julie says:

    Went to the Provo, Utah, Kmart this morning, and they no longer are accepting the $10 coupon. Must have been a one day wonder.

  14. Andrea says:

    where at on the website is this coupon located?

  15. Desi says:

    I was just at Kmart in Orem, UT and I was having the problem using coupons so I found items that I did not use coupons and they turned me away. They are not excepting the 10.00 coupon anymore. There were 3 other ladies there at the same time and they denied us the 10.00 coupon altogether.

  16. KANDIS says:

    They told us the $10 off coupon was a fraud. They wouldn’t let us use it!

    • Chandra says:

      That’s awful! It is from their website for crying out loud. That is a sign of employees that don’t know what is happening in their own organization. Shame on them!!!

  17. Terri says:

    Does anyone know if Pampers is included in the P&G cat? Thx.

    • Jennifer says:

      I assume Pampers are included, because my purchase consisted of only 2 items: a box of Size 1 Swaddlers ($20.99) and a pack of Size 2 Swaddlers ($9.99). I got the $5 Catalina, AND a $5 Enfamil, which makes it a great deal for me! Did this transaction twice, and got the $5 Catalina and $5 Enfamil coupon both times. I was lucky enough to use the $10 off $20 both times as well before everyone started calling it fraud…

  18. J says:

    The $10 of $20 coupon clearly states ” Cannot combine with any other coupon for the same
    item(s) and cannot double.”..

    Doesn’t that mean you can not use any other coupons and not double them either? Have you even tried any of these scenarios.

    • jen says:

      KKL, are you using the kmart Q first then the Man last? It states that all other discounts have to be taken off first, wouldn’t that mean man qs would have to be deducted 1st which would most like drop you below the $20 mark.

      • Joanie says:

        J,
        most store coupons exclude other discounts or coupons. This is referring to other STORE coupons or STORE discounts. Kmart has no reason to exclude manufacturer coupons since they are reimbursed for their full value. That said, I’m sure this will be the reason that some people won’t be able to use this coupon. But it sounds like most of our readers are using it without any problems at all.

        Jen,
        When I shopped I did hand over the $10/$20 first, then the manufacturer coupons. Again in my opinion manufacturer coupons are NOT a discount. They are a form of payment.

        Example: Maybelline Cosmetics are 33% off at Kmart. This is a discount. I purchased a $6 lipgloss that rang up at 4 something after discount. In my opinion, this is the kind of discount that is being referred to. Don’t use the full price of the lipgloss $6, to reach the $20 minimum.

        Hope this helps. Kmart makes it essentially impossible to get a hold of anyone with any real authority. My guess is we’ll have to wait for a corporate memo to come down to stores.

      • Kidsrule@mac.com says:

        I went to Kmart this morning and they will not take the manufacture’s coupons after the $10 coupon. You have to have a total of $20 to use the 10 coupon and no catalina will print unless you actually pay at least $20. This was my experience this morning anyway.

        thanks

    • Heather says:

      The coupon states you can’t combine it with outher coupons. However, remember that Kmart gets reimbursed for manufacturer’s coupons. So, the coupon fine print is referring to other Kmart coupons. You should be able to do both

  19. Mandy says:

    Does anyone know if the $5 coupon will roll????
