K-Mart Super Doubles April 4-10

Do you hear the echo of the choir of Angels??  Just a faint echo, that's all.  Before I give you the scoop, let me tell you a little story. 

There was once a Mom/Wife that that had about 2 months under her belt at learning/mastering the art of couponing.  She was a tiny bit organized: She had her coupons filed in her binder and her notebook and calculator in the store, but that's about it. She didn't know that she had to be there the first day of the K-Mart's Super Doubles, and as a result lost out on a lot of great deals.  At that time, K-Mart did not limit the number of coupons that you could use and would double up to $2.00.  They even gave you a $5 off $50 if you signed up to receive their ads via email. There were basically no limits......

Times have changed and it's 2010.

I emailed corporate earlier today and asked them if our area was having Super Doubles.  The promptly replied:

Two schools of thought on this.....5 coupons - really...REALLY!!!!  I have more than 5 coupons in my coat or jeans pocket on any/most given days!!!  really.....    I live about 15-18 miles from the two closest K-Marts.  I am confident my husband is smarter than to believe that I want to go to either of these areas for dinner or a "quick" errand....he's got me figured out.
The other thought is kuddos for K-Mart to reply to my email so quickly AND to provide me with the details up front.  That's a BIG kuddos for them.  Knowing the "rules of the game" is essential, especially when you have to drive 15 miles for 5 items/coupons.

ahhh....I remember that day. Still have the gillette men's body wash we scored for $0.50. Thanks for the heads up on this one! Doesn't sound like it will be nearly as much fun as that first round.
