Kmart Coupon Policy


Kmart’s Print-at-Home Internet Coupon Acceptance Policy
Effective March 1, 2009  Kmart will accept industry-standard, secure print-at-home coupons. This will provide additional benefits and incentives to our customers to help them save their money at Kmart.

Due to the continuing shift in utilizing online facilities, allowing the redemption of print at home coupons is becoming a larger more important aspect to the budget wise customer. But there is a significant risk in fraudulent alerted coupons. It is critical that the following guidelines be understood and followed to identify coupons that will not be accepted by the Kmart register operators.
Kmart can only accept print-at-home coupons if they scan properly at checkout.
Legitimate printable coupons are delivered using special software designed to print a properly rendered barcode on the coupon and limit the number of coupons printed. If the coupon dos not scan properly it cannot be accepted
Kmart will not accept coupons for more than about 75% of a product’s value.
For example, a $2 off coupon for a product that sells for $2.25 is unlikely to be legitimate. If there are exceptions, Kmart is usually provided advance notice by the manufacturer.
Coupons will be rejected if they appear distorted or blurry, altered in any way, or are obvious duplicates.
Kmart will not accept ” FREE product” (no purchase required) print-at-home coupons.
It is currently an industry practice not to produce print-at-home manufacturer’s coupons
We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced, regarding our coupons.

    I was just reading the coupon policy and I’m a little confused on the max allowed coupons in 1 transaction. It states,”limit 5 coupons per customer per day”, then it states after grocery and drugstore items listed in the policy “10 coupons, per day, per customer may be doubled. Additional coupons will be honored but not doubled.” What is the limit on coupons, per transaction and per day?

    I would like to know if you can use a Kmart register coupon (the one with the red tape you get after you make a purchase) ALONG with a manufacturer’s coupon for one item?

  3. Rebecca says

    I have searched forever through Kmart’s whole website and couldn’t find their coupon policy LOL it’s ridiculous!

    I had a dispute yesterday with a “manager” and an inexperience sales associate that is uneducated about coupon. I went to the first Kmart and Wisp was on BOGO and I use 2 Wisp internet coupons that was scanned without a problem.

    During the evening, I made more printout to purchase additional Wisp then return to Kmart the next day. The sales associate didn’t accept my two coupons for BOGO and the manager told me they can’t use two but one. I show them my yesterday receipt and was being told the cashier made a mistake. I was so upset and they refused to provided me the store policy and refused to look at me…knowing I am deaf and I knew I was right. I walk out the store upset and wasn’t able to purchase any additional WISP under BOGO sale.

    I read your comment and printed to show the store what they did wrong. I hope to speak with a higher manager to ensure they educate these staff.

    Can you use the manufactures coupons( that you get at check out at Vons) at K-Mart? The ones I have are for Ensure. The price of this product at K-Mart is better, so if I can use these coupons, it would help. Thanks, Linda
