The following general policies apply to all coupons accepted at Kmart. This includes coupon usage during Double Coupon Days and most other Kmart grocery and drug store shopping events.

  • The coupon must have a scannable bar code.
  • The coupon must be the original coupon. Copies are not accepted.
  • One coupon per item is accepted. For example, stacking a manufacturer's coupon with a Kmart coupon is not permitted.
  • Coupons resulting in an overage will be adjusted down to match the price of the item. No overages are given in the way of cash or credit.
  • During regular business days, there is no official limit on the number of coupons shoppers may redeem; however, the store manager may impose a limit if necessary.
  • Coupons do not apply to sales tax.

Coupon Policies During Double Coupon Days

The general coupon policies listed above also apply to Double Coupon Days along with additional policies specific to the event:

  • The total sale before coupons are applied must reach $25 or more in grocery and drugstore merchandise.
  • Only customers with a "Shop Your Way Rewards Card" will receive double the value of their coupons. The rewards card must be presented to the cashier when checking out in order to get the double coupon values.
  • Manufacturers' coupons of up to $1 can be doubled.
  • There is a limit of five coupons per day that will be doubled. Additional coupons may be used, but they will not be doubled.
  • Shoppers may purchase up to four of the same item with double coupons.
  • Buy-one-get-one coupons, Kmart Savings coupons and Kmart Store coupons are excluded and will not be doubled.
  • Amount of credit from doubling a coupon cannot exceed the price of a single item.
  • No overages as a result of a coupon will be given in the way of cash or credit.
  • Limits and restrictions may vary by event.

Printable Internet Coupons

  • Printable internet coupons that scan properly during checkout are accepted.
  • Internet coupons that display the following characteristics will not be accepted:
    • Blurry
    • Distorted
    • Do not scan properly
    • Appear altered in any way
    • Are copied, not printed or obviously duplicated
  • Printable coupons that offer a "free" item without a purchase requirement will not be accepted.
  • Buy-one-get-one-free coupons and other values that have a purchase requirement are acceptable.
  • Printable coupons for more than about 75% of a product's value will not be accepted. For example, a $2 off coupon for a product that sells for $2.25 is unlikely to be legitimate. If there are exceptions, Kmart is usually provided advance notice by the manufacturer.

Manufacturers' Coupons

Note: This applies to clipped, not manufactures' coupons printed from the internet. See above for Kmart's policy on accepting manufacturers' coupons printed from the internet.

Kmart accepts all manufacturers' coupons including $5-off coupons, buy-one-get-one coupons and coupons for free products when the following criteria is met:

  • The coupon must have a scannable bar code.
  • The coupon must be the original coupon. Copies are not accepted.

Rain Checks

Kmart does offer rain checks on certain items. Items that are part of a temporary sale or if the advertisement specifies that quantities are limited do not qualify for rain checks.

Note: Coupon policies can change without notice. Kmart does not have a coupon policy posted; however, you can write to and ask for clarification about the coupon policy or contact them if you have a problem using coupons at a store.
