Kmart: Good News & A Great Deal

Good news Kmart shoppers! I stopped at Kmart on my lunch hour today, and they are indeed doubling ALL coupons, not just coupons from Proctor & Gamble. I also had a wonderful cashier who was highly impressed with my deals! I'll share those with you later this evening. But I wanted to let you know about a great deal that I got on Special K.

Right now if you buy 5 boxes of Special K at Kmart, you get $5 off at checkout. It's not a coupon; it comes right off of your total. To get the best deal, here's what I did.

Buy 5 boxes of Special K @ $2.50 each -> $12.50
Use 5 $1.00 off printable coupons (
The coupons double to give you $2.00 off each box. -> -$10.00
Cost for 5 boxes: $2.50
Discount at the Register: -$5.00
Final Price: FREE plus $2.50 overage

Since they don't give you the $2.50 back as cash, you'll need to purchase another item or two to use it up.

If your Kmart isn't doubling coupons this week, your transaction would still be a great deal. Your cereal would be $7.50 after coupons. After the $5.00 off at the register, you would pay $2.50 for 5 boxes of Special K. Not bad!

I'll be back later to share all of my great finds with you!
