While Kmart occasionally offers double coupon promotions, this is not something the company does on an ongoing basis. When such a promotion is available, it is limited to certain participating stores and promoted through the company's advertising materials.
Kmart Policy on Double Coupons
Kmart has an official in-store coupon policy. It addresses all aspects of coupon redemption with the retailer. Regarding coupon doubling, it states the company may sometimes ("from time-to-time") offer promotions that include allowing customers to redeem manufacturer's coupons for double their face value.
Per company policy, whenever a double coupon promotion like this is in effect, the specific terms and conditions will be "published in Kmart advertising and available in participating Kmart stores." Specific details would be available at participating stores during the promotion, and consumers should contact their local store with any questions.
Provisions and Restrictions
During a double coupon promotion, special restrictions may apply such as value limits on coupons eligible for doubling or total purchase requirements. According to The Krazy Coupon Lady, when Kmart offers a double coupon promotion, they will typically double coupons with a face value of up to $2, but only if customers make an in-store purchase of at least $25.
Additionally, other provisions in the company's in-store coupon policy will continue to apply when double coupon promotions are in effect. Examples include:
- Only one coupon may be redeemed per item.
- Purchase must comply with any purchase stipulations specified on the coupon (i.e., items must match the specified package size, quantity requirements must be met, etc.).
- Coupons must be given to the cashier at the time the purchase is made. (This means you can't go back after making a purchase and ask for a refund of the coupon value.)
- Coupons can't be applied to sales tax.
- Coupons must be valid (not expired, not counterfeit, not photocopied, etc.).
- Manufacturer's coupons may not be presented on a digital device. (You have to have paper coupons).
