My Kmart finally has the M&M’s Snack Mix in stock, and I found a $1.00/1 tear pad on the display. When you buy 4 snack mixes before 5/28, you’ll receive a $5.00 gift card.

This deal gets even better if you spend $25.00 or more in grocery, beauty and/or health items, so you can double the $1.00 off coupons. This week, you can double 5 coupons, up to $1.00 in value, every day when you spend $25.00 on grocery, beauty, and health merchandise items. You will need to be a Shop Your Way Rewards Member to double any coupons. If you are not a Shop Your Way Rewards Member, you will need to sign up with the cashier or at the customer service desk or online.  This is free to join and will only take a few minutes. Make sure to give the cashier the 5 coupons you would like to double first before any other coupons. Below are a few examples of how you can use this promo to get some great deals.

Buy 4 M&M’s Snack Mix Sweet & Salty, 8 oz $2.50
Buy 4, Receive $5.00 gift card – Valid through 5/28  
Use 4 $1.00/1 M&M’s Snack Mix – Tear pad next to Item
or $1.00/1 M&M’s Snack Mix from All You Magazine, May 2012
Pay $6.00, Receive $5.00 gift card
Final Price: $0.25 each when you buy 4

If you spend another $15.00 on health, beauty and/or grocery you will reach the minimum spending limit required to double coupons.  Here is a suggested transaction that combines two Catalina promotions.

Spend $15 on Participating Products, Receive $5.00 Catalina
Buy 4 M&M’s Snack Mix, Receive $5.00 Catalina

Buy 2 Glad 13-3o Gal Trash Bags $6.99
Buy 1 KC Masterpiece Sauces, 18 oz $1.79
Buy 4 M&M’s Snack Mix Sweet & Salty, 8 oz $2.50
Subtotal: $25.77
Double (4) $1.00/1 M&M’s Snack Mix – Tear pad next to Item
Double (1) Use 2 $1.00/1 – Glad Black Trash Bags – (Facebook.com) Must watch video and enter sweepstakes
Use $1.00/1 KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce or Marinade from SS 5/13 (exp 7/15)
Pay $13.77, Receive $5.00 Catalina for M&M’s, AND $5.00 for spending $15.00 on participating products
Final Price: $0.53 each when you buy all 7 items

The KC Masterpiece coupon will only double up to $1.79, so make sure to hand over your M&M’s and Glad coupons first for the most savings.

    This post makes me even more hesitant about going into Kmart with my coupons.  

    •  Don’t be hesitant:) All you can do is try. I have not had time to try this at all, hoping 2mro it will be ok. we will see. But in general the 2 K-marts (both about 15 or 20 minutes away) have not had any really huge problems with them for a very long time.

    I went earlier and i couldn’t combine the 4 coupons together because it said limit 1 per purchase!! :(

    I had a nightmare shopping trip yesterday at my local Kmart, what should have taken 20 minutes tops, took an hour.  There were no $1 coupons for M&M snack mix, then I didn’t get my $5 coupon for buying 4.  They didn’t know anything about it, but looked it up and did fix that for me. Then, I was off by $.01 on one transaction and didn’t get my $5 catalina, so had to grab another item while they cancelled out and re-rung my purchase.  Then the register stopped working correctly on my last transaction and they had to cancel it out and put me on a different one.  I get home and look at my receipts only to find they didn’t take off the $5 catalina coupon.  I called and they said I could come in and they would fix it, but what a pain!!  Kmart really needs to get with the program!

  8. I went today to this deal but mine looked like this

    4 M&M snack mixes =10.00
    1 glad force flex 6.99
    1 glad draw string 6.99
    2 kc master piece 3.58 total 27.56 before tax

    coupons
    -(4) 1.00 M&M snack mixes (doubled, took off 8.00)
    - 1.00/2 kc master piece (doubled, took off 2.00)
    -1.85 force flex (from coupon network watched video)
    -1.85 draw string (from coupon network watched video) total 13.86

    paid 13.86 plus tax
     i got the 5.00 gift card for buying 4 snack mixes
    the catalina machine started printing coupons for glad trash bags, then the paper ran out so the 5.00 catalina didn’t print ,ssooooooooo i had to wait in line at the service desk and after explaining what happened the assistant manger gave me a 5.00 gift card
    so after all coupons, doubles and promotions was 3.86 before tax about .48 cents an item

    i was told by corp. to call my manager of the store i go to and it’s up to them
    my manager said yes if its scans at register but she will not override 

    • Anonymous says:

      They should at least try typing up the code for the coupons. If it does not work then, then I would say ok you may not be able to use it. But to say if it does not scan we can not take it is not right. That is not right to let the manager make the final decision. It does not state that in there policy.

  10. I tried at my Kmart and they say they double coupons up to $1. As in if you have a coupon for .25 it will double up to .50. a .50 will double up to $1 and a .75 will double to $1 and coupons that are already $1 will not increase in value. Bummer!!!! 

    • Anonymous says:

      The words “up to”, in my opinion, mean “including”.  If they want to exclude coupons that are $1 in value, they should say “up to $0.99″.  When they have promotions about saving “up to 20%” that means that you can save 20% max, not 19% lol.  Have you tried doubling $1 coupons at your Kmart?

    • Anonymous says:

      Have them scan it and see what the computer does, In my experience it will not double if it is not allowed.

    • That was the least of my problems. I went back yesterday and the cashier told me they only accept 5 coupons per customer per day and absolutely no more and they would only accept coupons (from the paper or printed at home) that didn’t have more than 1 bar code. She would only accept the KMart rewards members coupons from the store. I waited 20 minutes for a manager and ended up putting over $50 worth of merchandise back when no one ever came to help us! I don’t have any luck at my local KMart!

    Today I tried to purchase 4 Glad Freezer Ware products that were on sale 2 for 6 and 4 M&M snack mix 2 for 5 and 2 KC Masterpiece. My total was 25.58. I gave the cashier my coupon for the free KC masterpiece and it would not scan. She had to get the manager to over ride the coupon. The cashier then informed me that the coupons would not double because I had to purchase 25.00 in health, beauty and/or grocery. I explained that I had and she said that the Glad Freezer Ware didn’t count as groceries. I asked to speak to a manger and he agreed that the Glad Freezer Ware didn’t count as groceries. I went ahead and continued my purchase and didn’t receive my 5 .00 for purchasing the participating products. When I inquried as why I didn’t get it the manger just simple said I didn’t buy the correct products. I’m more then sure that I did. But if anyone could help me figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. The manager was of NO help. I’ve never shopped at KMart before and am not sure if I did something wrong.

    • This deal didnt work for me..I bought everything I was suppose to and didnt get the $5 GC for the M&M’s b/c I couldnt prove it and it wasnt in the ad. And I didnt get $5 catalina either for buying Glad trash bags and Tupperware and KC BBQ…they said they dont count Trash Bags and Tupperware in the $25 to get double coupons..so they didnt double either..anyways it was a bad experience..Kmart is NOT COUPON SAVVY! I dont think I will ever try them again.. honestly!

      • Anonymous says:

        It seems like some Kmarts have different policies on what counts toward double coupons, etc., but I don’t see how that could be since they’re a national company.

      • its in there monthly ad i saw it today it expires on the 28th or somewhere around there 

    • Anonymous says:

      If you use the Free coupon for KC Masterpiece it will not count towards your $25.00. Also, there should be hang tags showing what is included for the Glad Freezer Ware Promo, and those are included. Plus, they are counted towards the $25.00. According to Kmart, Glad Freezer Ware and Trash Bags are included under grocery.

    Can’t we use the free KC Masters (the free item this week for spending $25 dollars) in stead of using the 1/1 m coupon? Or will it not count towards the $15 cat?

      They should double. I would call your local store or look in your local ad and check to see if they are participating.

        I live in FL on the panhandle.  As long as the local ad says they are doubling I don’t have a problem.  It does look like they do it manually in my store so watch as they ring up.  Grab the ad in the front of the store as u walk in if you get papers from other towns.  Hope ths helps

    Starting not to like shopping at Kmart. I got another $10.00 P&G this week. They tell me I can use it on P&G only. My Kmart would not roll catalinas this past week.

    • Anonymous says:

      Be sure to read the fine print in the ads about their catalinas…it did say that it could only be used on P&G products.  I didn’t do ANY P&G deals all month because of that.

  15. oh and also they don’t allow overage on doubled coupons- the KC masterpiece coupon would take off $1, then .79 instead of $1 for the double-part

    • and they don’t allow you to use ANY Kmart coupons in conjunction with other coupon offers- they once wouldn’t even let me use an in-ad coupon for Sparkle 8roll with a $1/1 mfr coupon I had! They’re stoopit sometimes…

      • Anonymous says:

        I have used Kmart coupons in conjunction with manufacturer coupons countless times, they don’t affect each other at all…you HAVE to scan the Kmart coupons first THEN the manufacturer coupons, otherwise it won’t work.  See my other Kmart brags where I have done this with Quilted Northern.  In fact, this week, there is a $1/2 Glad containers store coupon in some stores and you CAN stack that with the $1/1 Glad manufacturer coupons.
        Sounds like you have a pretty strict Kmart…I’ve been able to do all the things you said that you couldn’t at 3 different Kmart stores.

        • I guess what I’me saying is MY Kmart won’t let me do it, so it’s fair to guess that others won’t as well….

          Whenever I tried to they said “the Kmart coupon excludes other coupons or offers” and I try to tell them that just means you can’t combine it with OTHER Kmart coupons but no avail….

          Thanks for clarifying that the KC, and Glad things you were proposing a mix n’ match/different scenarios. I thought you posted it as one deal and I was about to get SO jealous if your kmart was doubling more than five :)

          thanks for the quick answers, it’s appreciated

            Man I totally know what it’s like to have an “anti-coupon” store. There is one Walmart by me that will not take printables so the other Walmart never has any of the good deals in stock!

        There policy said you can not stack coupons. I know this is a bummer.

      • Anonymous says:

        My Kmart lets me stack a Kmart Q with a MQ all of the time.  It also does not make a difference which order you hand the Q’s to the cashier.  If you are including the item in your $25 total, you will want to hand the MQ first then the Kmart Q.  This is just how my store handles it.  But they have always been really great with coupons, even putting tearpads of the Kmart Q by the product in case you need them. I have also received overage, which has been applied to the rest of my transaction.

    • Anonymous says:

      The KC coupon doubled fine for me on all 3 of my trips. You have to buy 2, make sure that when they scan the coupon and select BOTH items or it won’t double to $2, it will double to $1.79 like you said if they only select one.

  16. I just came from my Kmart in Fairfield, CA and I bought 5 glad freezerware, 4 nestle stand-up bags and 2 dixie plates but didn’t get the $5 for the $15 purchase :o( But I think I will cave in, go back and check if they have the snack mix.

    • Anonymous says:

      Just got back to your customer service and tell them they should either refund you $5.00 or give you a $5.00 GC since the CRT didn’t print :)

      •  My kmart stinks. They have the stand-up bags priced at 3.29 and they don’t know how to make it work…. so they just marked it down to 1.25 ea and totally screwed up my pricing. The mngr said that the $15 is after coupons not before so they won’t give it to me. :o( I just went again to do the trash bags and another 4 stand up bags and they won’t give me the free KC (I had bought a drink and some dixie cups too) because the price was below $25. I got the $5 this time but it took 45 minutes to buy a few items. Totally not impressed w/ Kmart.

          Oh I hate that you had an awful trip! Kmart can be really hard to deal with.

      Did you check to see if the Catalina machine was on? Sometimes the cashiers don’t turn it on Before they start and then it doesn’t print.

      the Nestle Stand Up bags are not included in the Buy $15.00, Receive $5.00 catalina. If the Freezerware and Dixie plates are over $15.00, if so I would take the reciept back to the store and get my $ for spending the $15.00. 

  17. Can you roll the gift card to do the same transaction again and still recieve another giftcard?

  18. Anonymous says:

    I am just now starting to get the hang of things, so I am still learning. I am confused about some things. For instance, when you purchase 4 of the M&M snacks, and you use 4 of the same coupons – is it possible to do that all in ONE transaction or does this have to be broken up into separate transactions ? I know it seems like a silly question, but I really want to get this down!  I appreciate the help! Thank you.

    • Anonymous says:

      You can use 4 of the same coupon in one transaction (just as long as the coupon doesn’t say you can’t and this one doesn’t).  You would want to buy all 4 in the same transaction or else you wouldn’t get the $5 gift card.  If you aren’t sure of things and want to “practice”, try KCL’s scenarios above and they should work out just as they say.

    When did you do this transaction and how much out of pocket did you spend? This is wayyyy too good :) I need to make it happen! haha

      I did this yesterday in 2 separate trips.  I posted it in the Kmart Brag Lounge if you want the actual breakdown, but I paid $20.87 OOP and got a $5 catalina back so my final cost was only $15.87!

      • kmart will only double 5 ‘like’ coupons, so how did you get them to double all 5 Glad coupons?

        • also, the KC masterpiece coupon won’t double if you’re already doubling 5 coupons…

          • Anonymous says:

            THis isn’t one transaction…the spacing didn’t work in my comment…they are all separate deals.  The Glad deal is one idea and the KC is another and Sierra Mist is another…you can mix/match, combine, whatever.  Obviously none of the scenarios will work ALONE unless you have other items in your cart because you need at least $25 for your coupons to double.  Also, you said Kmart will double only 5 like coupons but then asked how they doubled all 5?  I think you meant 4, and that’s actually not their policy.  Their policy is that you cannot buy more than 4 like items with double coupons.  Your way around this is to buy different sizes of the items.  I bought 2 large and 3 small Glad containers. Or you can double another coupon in your transaction.  Read the Brag I posted for more details…I’ve done 3 transactions at Kmart this week and have done all these deals I listed. HTH 

            • I commented on your brag as well- I think your store is misinterpreting the 4 ‘like’ coupons rule (jealous of you btw)- it means the SAME coupon regardless of differences in variety/size of product.  Just a warning to others trying to duplicate this-I don’t think other stores would interpret it that way but IDK…

              I did check your brag for clarification- and good job! I am anxious to try this out at my kmart (but like I mentioned, they are so sh*$ty about coupons I never know if my scenarios will work)

              And the KC thing, so do they manually put in the coupon? or when they scan it (and it brings up the screen for them to attach it to) just ask them to attach it to both?

              And when I did try to scan the Kmart coupons first (as in the Sparkle paper towels I mentioned) then handed over the mfr, the mfr one didn’t scan. So then she started “researching” and said I couldn’t use it beacuse of the store coupon. I HATE that my store does this (and once I went to a young girl who didn’t enforce it, just manually over rode the computer) and I’ve heard on other blogs that other people have this issue too. :(

              I hadn’t checked Kmart’s deals the last few weeks and am so mad I missed the PG deal!

    Could I replace the bbq for the kraft dressing its $1.00 and I have a coupon for a $1.00 off 2

    • Anonymous says:

      If you took the BBQ sauce out, you wouldn’t qualify for the $5 catalina because you need to spend at least $15 in participating products (this includes the BBQ sauce). There are other items in the promotion like the KC marinades for $2.99 each or Dixie cups, plates or bowls, which are 2/$4.  I posted a comment earlier on this post, which has the Glad Freezerware containers…they’re $3 each and there’s a $1/1 coupon from the 5/20 SS.  Basically, there’s tons of options :) but unfortunately, Kraft isn’t one of them.

      • what products r included in this?
