Kmart Shopping 6/20/2011

I was very nervous as I started finding great deals to throw in my cart at Kmart.  Even though I had an idea of how transactions should transpire, I was worried what might happen in reality could be a pain.

For instance, I found travel size Secret deodorant for $1.19.  I had two coupons for $.75 off each (should each double to $1.50), but I didn't know if they would (A) take the coupon and give me the overage (B) take the coupon and price adjust the Q to the $1.19 (C) just refuse to use my coupon OR (D) surprise me in some other crazy, unexpected way.  Options A and B were totally acceptable, but C and D had me on pins and needles!

I decided to just go ahead and do all of my shopping and then stop off at customer service to ask questions before checkout.  The customer service attendant, Ashley, was awesome!  She offered to go ahead and ring me up, so that she could also help me with any questions or problems.  As she was ringing everything up, she turned the computer screen my direction and double checked everything was doubling as expected.

Even better, everything worked out with the transaction too!  All of my $.75 coupons doubled to $1.50, with the exception of the lower priced items.  Those ended up price adjusting to match the price of the items.  No overage, but I'll still take Free anyday!

Here are the deals that ended up in my cart.  Hopefully some lucky shoppers who followed me will get the good deals too, as I left several coupons behind with the items : )
