Get those coupons ready, shoppers! This week, some Kmarts in the area are doubling and tripling coupons. It's like Christmas in April!! Check the front page of the weekly ad for the Kmart closest to you to confirm which stores are participating. I know the stores in Collinsville and Fairview Heights are.
Here are the basics:
1. Coupons up to and including .75 are tripled. That means the Huggies wipes .75 coupon that was in the Sunday paper will take $2.25 off your purchase. Wipes are $2.50 at Kmart this week so you get them for a quarter!
2. Coupons up to and including $4.00 are doubled. That makes Pull-ups a great deal this week. Diapers and pull-ups are on sale for $9.99 this week so with the $3.00 Pullups coupon in Sunday's paper you can get a package for just $4.00!
3. This is for all coupons... not just baby stuff. There is supposed to be a limit of 25 coupons and a limit of 4 like items per transaction but I checked out today with more than that and had no problems.
4. Be prepared for long lines. The way the register takes off the coupons can be a little tricky. Sometimes the checker will have to match the coupon with the item bought on the screen...so make sure they're hitting the right button.
5. Be careful with coupons that are on 2 items. For example... if you have the $1.50 off of 2 Glade candles coupon....It will only double to $3 off if the first candle costs at least $3. I have a couple $3 off 2 Huggies coupons that I think will double to $6...but that's because the first pkg will cost $10.
6. Runs through Saturday.
