Alrightly ya’ll- those of you that are seasoned doubles shoppers know that Kmart usually has some extra hoops to jump through. Those of you that are new to this- it is fun and usually worthwhile but they really make you work for your deals!
Here is the monkey wrench that Kmart is tossing out this time around:
You have to sign up for a Shop Your Way Rewards card from Kmart. It is not a credit card and it is free.
The card will need to be used if you want to double coupons at Kmart the week of April 4th. It will also track how many you use, so the 5 coupon limit per day will be enforced.
I would recommend signing up for this now if you think you want to do the doubles event. It says the card will arrive in the mail in 3-4 weeks and you can print a temporary card to use in the meantime.
Also, I try to stay upbeat and positive on MFA but I do want to warn you when I signed up for the last Kmart Rewards deal (the ChaChing card) it was a disaster. The stores had no idea what it was and could not scan it and I wound up throwing it away. So my hope is that Kmart has any glitches with this new program all ironed out by the time we hit the stores!
Personally I have shopped doubles events numerous times and I always try to look at it as an adventure and have a sense of humor with the process. I am very pleased that they do not seem to be enforcing a minimum purchase amount this time around.
Thanks For the Mommas!
