Back in the Saddle and a Quick KMart Note

I took a little bit of time away from the computer the last couple of days to focus on spending time with my family and enjoying Easter.  I'm back today, and I know I've got my work cut out for me!!

I ran to KMart yesterday.  Call me skeptical, but my luck with KMart hasn't always been the greatest.  Anyway, I wasn't sure if the whole Double Coupon Event thing was actually going to work at my neighborhood KMart, but it did!!  I was very pleased!  I ended up getting a DVD for $1!!  It's called The Pebble and the Penguin.  I found an online coupon for $2 off the movie the other day (get the coupon here) and it was in a $5 bin!!  Since they doubled my $2 coupon, I only paid a dollar for it!  We've never seen it (or even heard of it) but it looks like a cute little animated movie, and hey, it was only a buck.  So if we hate it, no biggie.  I'm gonna head back over there today to score some cheap deodorant.  I did pick up some Pull-Ups yesterday, but even with a doubled $2 coupon, I still paid $.23 per Pull-Up, which isn't a fabulous deal (Walgreens will run promotions where I can get them for $.17 or $.18 each) so I don't think I'll pick any more of those up.  Did you go to KMart?  Find any deals that everyone should know about?  Leave a comment!

  1. I went yesterday and got Dove deoderant for free and I had 3 $2 off coupons for Pantene that I received from vocalpoint so only 35 cents each. I was pleasantly surprised with Kmart this go around. Very smooth transaction. I will be visiting everyday this week at lunch!!!

  3. The movie was in the bin marked $5 back in the electronics section, as you're heading to the right to see the wall of DVD's. Hope you find it!

  5. So, I found the movie today, but the register would not take my coupon. No big deal I just did not get the movie. The big deal to me was how helpful the cashier was. She really tried to get the register to take that coupon!! Through this entire week (yes I know it has only been 3 days of doubles) the cashiers have been so helpful and excited about the savings. This is a complete change from the attitude that I have witnessed in the past from Kmart in Jackson in regards to coupons. Wonder if everyone here got a pep talk??? Anyways overall pleased this event. Yesterday I bought 4 Dove deoderants and 1 Dentastix, all I paid was tax and I got a $5.00 coupon good on my next purchase. I used that coupon today to get 3 bags of cat food and 1 candle. 99cents out of pocket!!

  6. That's great! You've gotten some fantastic deals!! Sorry about the coupon - come to think of it, my cashier had trouble with it, too, but he just selected the product that the coupon was for (on his little touch-screen monitor) and manually entered the $2.00 coupon amount, which then doubled to $4. He must have been smart! :) Good luck if you go back again!
