Kmart Double and Triple Coupons

Kmart is doubling and tripling coupons this week but check to see if your store is participating first, then get your coupons ready for tommorrow morning!

I always come home with a ton of free and really cheap stuff when Kmart doubles coupons valued $.76 up to $2 (ex $2 is worth $4). This is the first time they have tripled coupons up to $.75 at my store and I am trying to find out how that is going to work. I am not sure if that means a $.55 Q is worth $1.65 or will only be worth $.75.

Other things to keep in mind:
-They will double up to the price of the item. No overage.
-They do not take internet printed coupons.
-They may not double coupons for $$ off more than one item. Ex. $1/1 will work, $1/2 won't work. I know, that's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard but that is how they do it at my store.
-Coupons of a value over $2 will not double. I know that is obvious but it's worth mentioning when you are in the mindset of doubling everything. Then when you go to Walmart you'll have a hard time not doubling the value of your coupons :-)
-BOGO and free items coupons don't double.
-Cannot use more of 4 of the same coupon.
-Limit of 25 coupons per customer.

How do I get organized for KMart doubles? Well, thanks to Sisterly Savings I have a day to plan before the promo begins.

Of course, I have been saving my coupon flyers each week and if I see a coupon that usually results in a free item, whether it be at a drugstore, grocery store or Kmart. I clip it and put it in my Couponizer. The more you shop for these deals the better you are at spotting these coupons.

I'll go thru each pocket of the couponizer and start pulling the high value coupons for items I need or will likely result in a freebie. (double check that they aren't expired...)

I'll put these in the front of the appropriate pockets and when I get to the store I go thru each pocket as I go thru each aisle searching for my deals.

You can go here and here to see lists of items that were great deals during previous Kmart double events. I've noticed I will get a lot of the same items each time so those coupons are easy to spot.

Now I will be all ready to go shopping tommorrow if I'm not puking!
