Kmart - So Far, So Good...

I keep reading about all the problems people are having with their Kmart stores and the super doubles and have to say that the 2 trips I've made to Paducah Kmart have been so great! Sunday night I stopped in and checked at customer service & the lady working explained it to me so nicely and then I had very smooth transactions checking out.

Last night when I checked out the cashier was just amazed that the coupons were doubling so he showed the lady who was coming to relieve him so he could take his break and she was amazed too. I did think it was kind of sad that their cashiers hadn't been educated on the promotion; however, they were both very nice and thought it was great that I saved so much. I'm really hoping that the rest of the week works this well.

On a non-coupon-related note, I also had a great response from the lady at the service desk last night. I had to do a return for my mother and the lone person working the service desk was swamped so I wandered through the bedding while I was waiting for it to slow down. When I finally went back and she asked how everything was I mentioned that I had just found a comforter set on sale but was disappointed they were out of the size I needed and she said no problem, I'll just give you a rain check on it. LOL, I hadn't even thought about being able to get a rain check, I was just disappointed that they were out of mine!

K-Mart Monday Night

I did a transaction on my card and one on my mother's card (this was all her stuff, paid for with her money, so for those who have ethical issues with the use of more than one card to get around the 5 per day limit - it wasn't for me!).

Her transaction:

120 load bottle Downy, $9.00
55 load box Tide, $9.00
Oral-B Advantage toothbrush, $2.79
30 oz bottle Dawn, $3.50
Febreze Air Effects, $2.50

$1.00 Downy, 4/4 PG
$1.00 Tide, 4/4 PG
$2.00 Oral-B, 4/4 PG
.50 Dawn, 4/4 PG
$1.00 Febreze Air Effects, Dress My Nest? booklet - don't remember if that's what the most recent coupon booklet in the mail is called or not...

All the coupons doubled, except the Oral-B which just gave and extra 79 cents to make it free.

So the total was $18.35 and she will submit for the $10.00 Mastercard. She's pretty happy with that.

For my transaction I still hadn't gotten all my coupons together, so here's what I got:

1 tube Clearasil (son just told me Sunday he needed some), $4.49
3 boxes Hartz dog biscuits, $3.99 each
2 Whiskas cat food trays, .59 each

$2.00 Clearasil printable
(3) $2.00 Hartz printables
BOGO Whiskas printable (printed previously on coupons.com)

Total: $1.03

Kmart Super Doubles are Here!

Stopped by last night after church to make sure that Paducah is participating; also made my husband go with me & use his card! Don't have the receipts in front of me so I'll just list the items I (we) bought.

I'm definitely planning to get my coupons together and stop in several times this week. Even with the 5 coupons per day limit I think I can make it work (especially when hubby goes too).

I Love CVS Clearance!

So, I ran into CVS this week to grab a couple of things and just "happened" to check their clearance. So glad I did since they had 2 boxes of Olay Regenerist marked down. So here's what I left with:

used (2) $3.00 coupons

Olay Body Wash, $7.49

also used $5 off $25 coupon and either $2 or $3 EB - I just don't remember and don't have my receipt with me!

Total OOP $2.57, and got back my EB earned for last quarter's spending!
