Mr. Potato Head Gift Deal

If you have little ones on your shopping list, you might be interested in this toy deal. I stopped by Kmart while we were out today, and I snagged these two Mr. Potato Head toys for a total of $4.98 plus tax.

The Mr. Potato head Fryer Fighter was $7.99. The Mr. Potato Head Parts 'n Pieces add-on set was $4.99. I had two $2.00 off printable coupons from (HERE), and they both doubled, saving me a total of $8.00.

They had the plain Mr. and Mrs. Potato Heads for $7.09. With the coupon, those would only be $3.09. They had several add-on kits too, one with winter accessories, one with policeman accessories, one with firefighter accessories, and a glamour one for Mrs. Potato Head. If your Kmart is doubling coupons, the accessory kits are only $.99 after coupons!

Even if you don't have little ones, you might want to pick up a few of these. They would make great additions to Angel Tree gifts at Christmas!

Thanks to Michelle from Money Saving Madness for the heads-up about this great deal!!

HI-i just found your site and am loving it. But i am located in NC-have a question about kmart-is it just yours that doubles these coupons? you have gotten some amazing deals-how do i find out what my local Kmart policy is? It seems there is no consistency through the stores? I have called before but the operator at my store had no idea what i was talking about? frustrating! :) thanks!

Casey - Many Kmarts have done the super double coupon events, but not all of them participate. The best advice I can give is to contact the corporate office the next time you hear about the doubles coming around.

You can either call customer service at 1-866-562-7848 or email them at

I don't think they're going to be doing any more doubling during 2009. I'll be sure to post the information as soon as I hear about any more events in the future. That way you'll know when to contact them.

I'm glad you stopped by!
