Effective March 1, 2009 , Kmart will accept industry-standard, secure print-at-home coupons.
Due to the continuing shift in utilizing online facilities, allowing the redemption of print at home coupons is becoming a larger more important aspect to the budget wise customer. But there is a significant risk in fraudulent alerted coupons. It is critical that the following guidelines be understood and followed to identify coupons that will not be accepted by the Kmart register operators.
Kmart can only accept print-at-home coupons if they scan properly at checkout.
Legitimate printable coupons are delivered using special software designed to print a
properly rendered barcode on the coupon and limit the number of coupons printed. If the coupon does not scan properly it cannot be accepted
Kmart will not accept coupons for more than about 75% of a product’s value.
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.
Coupons will be rejected if they appear distorted or blurry, altered in any way, or are obvious duplicates.
Kmart will not accept ” FREE product” (no purchase required) print-at-home coupons.
It is currently an industry practice not to produce print-at-home manufacturer’s coupons for free product. Buy-one-get-one-free coupons and other values that have a purchase requirement are acceptable.
