You can roll catalinas at Kmart.

Is the general mill cereal always 2$ or its on sale for 2$.. i was planning to go tomorrow.. anybody!!!

It is on sale for $2.00. It might not be on sale next week. Lets hope it is.

 thanks KCL… Looks like i missed it.. love those cookie crisp cereal.. i eat them more than my lil’ ones..

really depends on the store and the discretion of the manager which I know it isn’t right but it is true

It looks like it should work but make sure you only buy the Ziploc bags and not containers. Also, you should get a bag of Chex Mix for free with your $25 purchase. You can get the coupon from their monthly ad located by their weekly ads or customer service. Normally, I have them scan the Free coupon before I give them the rest of my other coupons.

Your CATs should roll. Good luck!

I have picked up great deals at the store in Terre Haute, Indiana……My total before coupons has been just a little over $25 mark.  No problems with coupons not doubling and I have done at least two transactions in a row and coupons still doubled.  Tonight I bought ziplocs, cereal, hot dogs etc for $7.79.  Can’t wait for Sundays ad!

went to kmart today to do this deal and was told I can’t use more than five coupons no matter what.  I have never had issues before and just wanted others to be aware of possible misinformed cashiers.  I detest shopping at KMart and only do when there are deals like this but buyer beware, watch your coupons and have a coupon policy handy

Sorry this happened to you. Unfortunately, Kmart’s associates aren’t very aware of their deals, coupon policies, etc. They can only DOUBLE up to 5 coupons per day (when you spend $25 or more on participating products), but you can still use more coupons that won’t be doubled. I’ve done it all the time. 

So Frustrating! I called ahead to verify my Kmart’s coupon policy and was told that you had to spend $25 in food and or household items and they will double the first 5 coupons. I went today and found out i as told wrong. You have to spend $25 in grocery it have your coupons doubled, and they do not count ziploc bags as grocery items…

 I called the other Kmart and apparently they consider Ziploc as grocery, so i will try there next…  

Hope you got the deal. :)

where can i find kmart montly ad online?

nevermind, found it!

I just went to Kmart and I received a $2 Catalina on my next cereal purchase, $2 Catalina on whatever I want, and a $5 store Catalina.  I thought it was a pretty good deal! :)

Call the store and ask if they are doubling. Sometimes you need to go in and try it out, the store does not always know if they are doubling. If it does not double return it.

·         The cereal deal is you get a $2 catalina wyb 5 GM cereals.  It’s actually not a $2 catalina (I thought it was too when I got it)…it’s actually a $2/5 GM cereal coupon…BUT, apparently, it only attaches to 1 box when you scan it, so you can stack it with additional coupons0 new comment was just posted. Show for the other 4 boxes!

 Where in IN are you located?  I was thinking about trying this one out myself, but the closest K mart to me is not all that close so, I didn’t want to waste the gas money going if it doesn’t work.

 Bedford, IN. I have tried exact transactions that other people have posted and it would never work and so I asked the store manager and that’s when I found out it’s the OOP total that they use for the catalina rewards and she then she showed me the fine print in their store ads that states this.  Very disappointing because I see all the great deals everyone posts that they get at Kmart, but I am always disappointed when I go there. :(  Wish my Kmart did the rewards based on total before coupons.

I went to the KMart in Ontario last night – they are not giving out any of the $5 coupons or $2 coupons when you buy the ziploc bags. I had 3 employees staring at me like I had lost my mind when I showed them the ad that said it would print the $5 out! Sad…. had to eat the cost at $10! minus my $2 in coupons still $8 wasn’t such a great deal. 

 when it doesn’t work like that I just return the items for a refund. Haven’t had any problems yet.

Call Corporate and let them know that the store is not honoring there weekly ads.

I checked out at the customer service desk last night, since it was the only lane open. My 3 cats also did not print for  4-Ziploc & 4-Biore. Store manager also said he could not do anything since I did not meet the limits after coupons were deducted. I told him I had done this same deal earlier at this very store and he commented that I was lucky that it worked for me then, but it should not have worked. He suggested I call Ziploc and Biore to get my Cats from them. If I returned the items I would be out of my prior cats & coupons that I used on this transaction. Very frustrating. I even suggested ringing them up at a regular register & they said no because of the total after coupons would not allow my cats to print.  He would not issue a gift card to me for my cats used on this if I returned.  “You couponer’s aren’t supposed to get things for free when you use coupons and get coupons back also” he said. 

No catalinas at MOST Service desks That is not right if you are looking to get Catalinas back I would INSIST that they open a line with one! That IS customer service! and I am a Kmart employee!

Don’t forget that K-mart also has All detergent on sale for $2.97. I went yesterday bought 5 bottles of All 2.97 – 1.00 (newspaper coupon) and -1.00( double from k-mart) = .97 per bottle. And I got 4 boxes of Capri sun got one free with a coupon B3GF1 =6.00 and a bag of Cheetos for 2.50 to make my total $25 in order to have my five coupons doubled. OOP= 14.84   P.S. Call k-mart and ask when there doubling coupons….All week or just Wens. and Sat. 

Thanks for sharing your great deal.

Just wanted to let you know in your first scenario you are using 6 coupons and you are only allowed 5 at Kmart? Or is it that only 5 double I am confused LOL. Thanks! Lee

 the 6 coupon is a Kmart in store coupon. I thought that too but then realized it was a kmart Q. So the 6th one won’t double.

You can use more than 5 manufacturer coupons per transaction, but only the first 5 will double. Store coupons will never double.  Hope that helps.

I was told by my K-mart that the Ziploc can not be used in the total of the 25.00 to get my coupons doubled. It is in a category of consumables, which is not grocery, health or beauty. So, this scenario is not applicable to get the coupons doubled when considering the purchase of the Ziploc containers.

Just in my experiences at Kmart the last few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that in most cases, the employees don’t know anything about their weekly and monthly ads, and the policy for doubling coupons. I know for a fact the ziploc and glade products are included b/c I did multiple transactions yesterday with double coupons and rolling my catalinas. I once asked a cashier if they were doubling every day right now and she was clueless. I also asked an employee if glade was included in the $25 to double, she was also clueless. I have been getting quite a few good deals the last few weeks at Kmart with the doubles, but it can be frustrating sometimes since it is sort of a trial and error process since the staff can’t provide any accurate information. Go back to your Kmart and get those ziplocs though, your coupons should double! HTH

 I did the ziploc and windex deal yesterday and had the receipt emailed to me, big mistake! I didnt get the 5.00 catalina! I called today and the manager told me to come in and bring my receipt. We will see what happens; I have my coupons ready for a doubler transaction if they give me my catalina; Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for helping your fellow readers.

I combined the ziploc & biore deals together to get my coupons doubled and to receive the $5 savings coupon. Although, I did not receive $2.50 catalina for buying 4 ziploc items. I’m going today to see what happened. 

The catalina is for $2.00 when you buy 4 ziploc.

Does it have to be just ziploc items in one transaction? I bought 4 packs of the bags that were 2/$5 along with the other items and never got the catalina. Today, I bought 4 ziploc bags again w/a glade product and I got the catalina. I asked the customer service desk as to why I did not receive my catalina yesterday, but they told me to call the customer service instead because they don’t really deal w/rewards in the store.

I just left Kmart just now and asked them if they are doubling…and they were not sure…lol plus it wasnt advertised in the paper plus no carnation milk coupon in the insert….is it the same at every kmart?  this is the first time couponing there before so kinda confused…any help will be greatly appreicated :)

Kmart has a monthly and a weekly ad. In the monthly ad it states that they are doubling coupons every day. It doesn’t say when that will stop, but the ad is good through April 2.

No carnation coupon in my ad in upstate NY, either.

The carnation coupon is next to the product in the store.

they are called super coupons and I believe that the milk is in the Monthly ad for 10 for $10 so maybe the coupon is sold out? there was no coupon in either insert. I am a Kmart employee.

You can try a scenario and if they dont double you can leave with out paying. The Carnation coupon is next to the product, it is valid all month long.

does anyone have any other good coupon scenarios for the kmart doubling this week? Would really like some help or inspiration! thanks :)

I posted a few brags in the Brag Lounge…just click on Kmart and my username is elizarae.  I got a bunch of Glade, Ziploc, Kleenex hand towels, cereal, etc.

I posted a couple brags in the Kmart Brag Lounge that the Glade Plugins Scented Oil products are printing extra catalinas on top of the Buy $10 get $5 deal.  The deal is buy 2 get $1, buy 3 get $2 or buy 4 get $3.  So depending on how many you bought, you would get an additional catalina with your $5 catalina.  This worked for me on the Twin Refills AND the Warmers.  The warmers were a MONEYMAKER because they are $1.19 each and there are $1.50/1 coupons and $1/1 coupons available for these.  You can check out my brags for more details…I was sooo excited when I scored this deal!

Thank you Elizarae..I’m excited to copy your latest post and I’m always trying to get the same deal you have but never got a chance to go to Kmart since it’s a bit far from where I live..Here’s another question lol if I spend $10 on Glade and get the 5 Catalina..can I use the $5 Catalina to the ziplock right away?

Yes, that one is rolling.

At Kmart can you roll ziplock Catalina for another purchse of ziplocks?

I heard it’s rolling, but I have not tested it myself.

Yes you can roll catalinas at Kmart.

Could I replace the evaporated milk with all detergent to make it 25? I know the coupons wont double but I have 1 off one so its still a great price

The All detergent is considered a grocery item, so if you bought 2 to bring your total over the $25 minimum, your coupons will double…that means $0.97 detergent!

and also you can only use 1 kmart catalina per transaction (it will say kmart coupon on top).  so you couldn’t use 2 of the $5 catalinas from the ziplocs to purchase 8 more boxes, you would have to separate your transactions

I would suggest doing them separatly since you are buying 8 you will not receive 2 $5.00 catalinas.

it is posted in their ad that they will only double 5 coupons per person per DAY, not per transaction and it is tracked by your shop your way rewards card.  at least that is how it is in CA.  they will not let you do it multiple times in a day.  although you can roll your catalinas for the ziploc bags and you should be getting $7 back for each set of 4 you purchase, i just did it yesterday :)

You can double 5 coupons per transaction, as long as you reach $25.00 each transaction.

The policy says 5 per day, however, I have done multiple transactions before and they doubled in each of them.  I’m in CA too.  I usually try to go to different locations, in case any managers/cashiers want to enforce the 5 per day limit, because it is in the policy….or I just make 2 trips in one day. 

My store doesn’t care, they just said do different transactions and they doubled on each transaction….

huh the manager at my store said only 1 per day and they will track it on your card so you can’t do it again anywhere else….guess maybe they are trying to crack down at my store for some reason…..doesn’t matter anyway, someone cleared most of the shelves anyway :(

Yes I was wondering if i could do separate transactions as well, and I had read somewhere that some ppl were able to, that it just depended on your cashier. So I just told my cashier that I wanted to use some coupons and was it alright if i did multiple transactions. She had no problem with it, and it doesn’t track on your card, so i was able to do 3 transactions of $25 and get my coupons doubled in each one. I then went to another Kmart and did two more transactions and my coupons doubled as well. Guess it just depends on your store.

Does anybody know if kmart has a way to type in printable coupons that don’t scan like Walmart does? Mine almost always never scan so I didn’t want to have an issue at the register. Thanks!

I just went to Kmart and my coupons did not scan, so they punched in the numbers and it worked fine.

 oh thanks!!!!

I have noticed that when the printables are scanned upside down, they work better. Very strange, i know, but it works everytime at my Walgreens.

Never have done double coupons so I have a question if I have $1/1 lucky charms cereal will it be doubled to $2 or no? Thanks for the help :)

yes it will double to $2 just make sure you have $25 worth of dollars in order to have the double. good luck. the other day i went to kmart and two employees told me the same thing. they also double $2 dollar coupons but the limit is 2. you should check not all kmarts are the same. 

Thanks :)

WHAT! schweet, that would be so awesome. I know ours has done that in the past, But I noticed things being marked wayyyyy up the week before they did it, so I quit bothering with it. Thanks for the heads up! Definitely worth asking about:)

Ziplocks are also printing a 2.00 RR for buying 4

yes the $5 for buy four of select items and $2 when you buy four zip lock.

do you know if the 10 dollar is after or before coupons to get the catalina offer. 

$10.00 before coupons.


At my store in Hollywood Fl its $10 after coupons

 $10  *after* coupons at my Utah Kmart.  Which took 2 cashier’s and 2 managers ONE HOUR to figure out.  I’m never going back to Kmart again!!!  Not that I’m mad or anything. 😀

Thanks for letting us know the details about the $2.00 Catalina

Only the bags are printing an extra 2.00 catalina, not the containers. Buy four ziploc bags ($10) and get a $5 and a $2 cat.

I went and actually the deal can be a money maker on zip lock bags.  I can’t remember which insert but there were three ziplock coupons and one of them was for $1 off of ziplock vacuum bags and they are part of the 2/$5 deal. so buy 4=$10 and use 4 $1/1 ziplock coupon and then get back $7 in catalinas =$1 MONEYMAKER!

Adrienne ( that is my awesome sister’s name too! even spelled the same way) It was in the 3-4 Smart Source, at least in my region it was. I did this last night and you are right it is a money maker:)

I have never couponed at kmart before, what are their catalinas?

catalinas are coupons you get after buying participating products. in this case when you spend 10 on participating ziploc products you will get, along with your receipt, a $5 dollar off on next purchase catalina (coupon). its a great deal. ill try it saturday hopefully i wont be to late. cause i really need ziploc bags.

Catalinas are the same at every store. They print out after you purchase all products in a promotion.

I’m confuse about Catalina..if I purchase ziplock and get $2 Catalina..does that mean I can only use the $2 on zip-lock or I can use it to any other items..and also can I use more than 1 Catalina in 1 transaction

Only if the catalina says 1 per transaction.  Most of the catalinas will say Store coupon or Manufacturer coupon on them.  If it says Store coupon, it is likely 1 per transaction, but read the fine print to be sure.  If it says Manufacturer coupon on it, you can use as many as you like as long as you have an item to attach it to (like a register reward at Walgreens), it doesn’t matter what the item is, it just has to be an item that you aren’t already using a coupon on.  HTH.

The two dollar coupon I got was for off your next purchase, it didn’t say it had to be for ziplock bags
