Kmart Coupon Problems...


Well guys, I have some bad news...

It seems that the Kmart coupon that I posted yesterday might be fraudulent...

Basically, people who have tried using this coupon at Kmart have run into problems. Managers have given the following explanations for why they can not take this coupon:

1. It is fraudulent and was never meant to be posted (then why was it posted on the K-mart website?! Seems totally legit to me!)

2. It is only valid in specific locations (why does it say on the coupon valid at all locations then?)

3. It is only valid for those people who received it by e-mail.

I'm not really sure what the deal is with the coupon, but I'm going to go ahead and say that the Kmart coupon is a dead deal.

I try my best to never post fraudulent deals. There are many deals that I don't post for that very reason. If I'm the slightest bit skeptical, I don't post it. This seemed totally legit, though, because it was posted on the Kmart website, had an expiration date, a bar code...everything checked out perfectly! Some people even called corporate and they said it was legitimate in the beginning. Weird! Regardless, I apologize for the misinformation.

Just to be on the safe side, and to be ethical, I'm going to say you probably shouldn't try using this coupon at any store since it has been labeled as fraudulent by Kmart corporate now. They have e-mailed all stores and told them not to take it.

Honestly, I think they just decided that it was too awesome of a coupon for so many people to get a hold of. They definitely have the right to pull it, but stores should think about all of the blogs and forums out there before they post such an amazing coupon...only to then tell us it is fraudulent!

That's my rant for the day. =) Sorry for the let down!

I was in the Zephyrhills, Fl K-Mart on March 19, 2010 about 10:00 A.M. and they honored 1 coupon for $10/20. I even gave a woman in the store 2 coupons. She was trying to buy cat food for stray cats. She was also successful. I was planning on going back today, March 20, 2001 for another deal. Things don't look good. I will talk to one of the supervisors at this store to see what happened.

Somehow I missed this post and tried to use mine at Publix today. They did say they just found out yesterday that it is fraudulent, per Kmart. Oh well, Publix is so great about their coupon policy that I still saved way more than I spent!!
