You have probably heard all the excitement surrounding Kmart's Super Doubles week this week at all Kmart stores. Through December 6th, Kmart is doubling up to and including $2 coupons. Sounds like some great potential savings, doesn't it?
I thought so and headed over this evening to grab some freebies. Unfortunately, just like the last time I tried to do this deal, there weren't many freebies to be had.
Granted, you could do fairly well on some products if you had a $1 or $1.50 coupon. For example, I bought two tubes of Colgate Total toothpaste for $.29 each with my doubled $1.50 coupons. But many of the cosmetic products I had hoped to get for a song were long gone. That is, the single packs of lipstick and eye shadow, for example, that would have been nearly free with my $2 off L'Oreal and Revlon coupons, were sold out.
Also, the products I buy all the time at the grocery store or CVS or Walgreens were more expensive to begin with at Kmart, so I decided to hold onto my coupons to use at another store during a good sale.
I wish you better luck than I had at finding bargains. I bet they're there, I just didn't find them.
