Kmart: Ziploc Bags as Low as $0.05 Per Package (After Catalina Coupons) + More

Wow! Currently, there are two different Catalina coupons printing at Kmart when you buy 4 packages of Ziploc bags in the same transaction…

* Kmart Catalina: Buy $10 worth of Cottonelle, Viva, Kleenex, Scott, Glade, Ziploc, Scrubbing Bubbles, Windex, or Libmam, get back a $5 Catalina coupon to use on a future purchase (valid through 4/7).

* Ziploc Catalina: Buy 4 Ziploc brand bags, get a $2 Catalina coupon back to use on a future purchase (valid through 4/14).

And you can use manufacturer’s coupons to sweeten this Catalina offer even further! Plus, Ziploc bags are on sale for just $2.50 each. Check out this *HOT* deal scenario…

* Buy 4 Ziploc bags on sale for $2.50
Total=$10
Use 4 $0.70/1 Ziploc Bags coupons found here (click on the coupon that shows $0.60/1, then watch the video to get a $0.70/1 coupon instead – you’ll need access to more than one computer to print multiple coupons)
Pay $7.20
Get back a $5 Catalina coupon AND a $2 Catalina coupon
Final cost only $0.20 total – just $0.05 per package! WOW!

If you can’t access that many $0.70/1 coupons, you could instead opt to use the $1/2 Ziploc coupons found in the 3/4 SS or found on Recyclebank or the $0.50/1 Ziploc coupon found in the 3/18 SS. Your scenario will look like this…

* Buy 4 Ziploc bags on sale for $2.50
Total=$10
Use 2 $1/2 Ziploc coupons found in the 3/4 SS or found on Recyclebank
(or use the $0.50/1 Ziploc coupons found in the 3/18 SS)
Pay $8
Get back a $5 Catalina coupon AND a $2 Catalina coupon
Final cost only $1 total – just $0.25 per package! Still a *HOT* price!

Even better, if you’re a Shop Your Way Rewards member (it’s FREE to sign up and you can do so online or in-store), then once you spend $25 (before manufacturer’s coupons), your first five $1 or under coupons will double! Plus, on the front page of the Kmart Storewide Savings guide (you should be able to pick this up in the front of the store – next to the weekly ad) there is a coupon good for a FREE General Mills Snack Mix 8.75 oz. when you spend $25 or more in grocery, health care and/or beauty care products, valid 3/18-3/24.

    Do all K-marts double coupons?

  2. im

    are you allow to roll catalinas at Kmart and also is other stores like Target or Grocery/drugstores are doing it. Kmart is so far for me its on the other side of town.

  3. Beth

    I’m not too familiar with kmart, can you roll these cats? Or is it like walgreens cats?

    • Jessica

      These ones roll!

      • Beth

        Thank you!!!:-)

  4. Melody Seale

    I went yesterday and did this deal. I was unaware of the $2 ziploc catalina, so that was a pleasant surprise. My kmart only doubles coupons 99 cents and under, so I used 2 of the $1 off 2 coupons. Got $7 in catalinas though.

  5. Alison M

    Thank you for posting this awesome Kmart deal! I appreciate it when you do as I shop there often! Thanks!

  6. Sharon

    You know, even without any coupons this is a great deal on Ziploc bags. After catalinas – $3.00 for 4 boxes. That’s still a hard price to beat! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Brandi

    Can you use the Catalinas on anything or just on Ziplocks?

  8. STACY

    Just 1 print on the couponnetwork site??

    • amy

      same here!

      • Kara

        I had the same problem. I thought I messed up and then tried it on my other computer but had the same problem. Now I am wondering if the .60 off coupon could have been printed twice.

        • Monique

          Nope ๐Ÿ™ thought the same thing so just choose the $.60 off on my other computer and still could only print one.

    • Leslie

      Same here. Doesn’t kill the deal. Just roughed it up a bit!

      • BROOKE

        SAME HERE

  9. Karens

    Do both cats roll?

  10. sherrisa

    Does anyone know when the cat coupons expire?

    • Ashley

      I did the deal this morning. One expires 4/4 (I think) and one 4/11.

      • sherrisa

        Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. stephanie

    i was wondering can you use the both cats on another same transaction of ziplock? and will you get the other cats?

    • fabiola

      Yes, I did it tonight and it worked.

  12. Trudi Caster

    What does that mean– do the cats roll??

    • Jamie K

      They mean – can you use them to do the deal again and still get the Cat’s on the second transaction.

  13. Bre

    Go TO THE TARGET WEBSITE!!!!! YOU CAN ALSO PRINT 2 .60 OFF ZIPLOC FROM THERE. SO IF YOU ONLY HAVE 1 COMPUTER PRINT 1 .70/1 FROM COUPONNETWORK.COM AND 2 .60/1 FROM TARGET.COM. Sorry for the caps I just wanted the post to stand out so you all can see it =)

    • Leslie

      I can’t find the coupons on targets coupons page. Where did you find them?

      • Leslie

        Never mind they’re magically showing up now.

    • Heather D.

      Thanks for letting us know about the Target website. I forgot about that – and it did print two times per computer for me. =)

  14. Tracey

    My lovely cashier was new and worked so hard for me, but when she called over the customer service person she said..no, no ,no it will not print because you got too much off already…i think it didnt print because the machine was off…ughhh i really dislike people who make me feel stupid when i know it should work

    • Alea

      If it doesn’t print, it has nothing to do with the store itself but the Catalina network – trying calling Catalina with your receipt in hand and they will often mail you the coupons if it was a broken machine or what not.

    • Mary

      Neither cat printed for me because their machine was not working, but the manager told me it was because I used coupons. She did give me a gift card for the $2 catalina, but refused to give me the one for $5. Ugh. KMart is always such a pain!

  15. Alison M

    I just went to Target’s website and was able to print off 2 Ziploc coupons for .60 off 1, I was able to print it twice even though I had already printed the .60 coupon off of coupon network earlier tonight on the same computer!

  16. jlynn

    I did this deal this morning. I got four Ziplock Bags, two Glad trash bags ($7.99 each) I used 2- $.70 Ziplock , 1- $1/2 Ziplock, 2- $1 Glad (Coupons.com i think?) plus a $5 catalina I had from an earlier purchase. I paid around $12 and got back a $5 catalina , a $2 Ziplock catalina and a $2.50 Glad catalina .. So excited to get trash bags with this deal!

  17. Judy

    This deal is so great! I’m green with envy!!! I wish we still had KMARTs in Texas. Boo-hoo!!

  18. AmburG

    Can you use target coupons at KMART?!

    • Alison M

      No, you can not use Target coupons at Kmart but the coupon on target.com is a manufacturer coupon with no Target logo on it so it can be used anywhere (it is a coupon network coupon).

  19. sv

    Our Kmart said they don’t accept internet coupons but only newspaper coupons. Cashiers say that the policy made by the manager at the store. (Riverside, CA).
    Is there any thing I can do about?
    Thank you in advance.

    • Jane

      EMAIL THEM! I had some problems with mine last week and received the following response from Kmart customer service:

      I later emailed back regarding the $1.00 policy and got this response…Kmart is frustrating..but keep with it and be diligent, it pays off – literally!

      As we understand it only coupon worth $1 or less will be doubled, any coupon worth over a $1 will be at face value.

      • sv

        Thank you. I will send Kmart an email .

  20. Cari

    I did the Scrubbing Bubbles & Ziploc separately both $10 before tax & coupons. I didn’t get any Catalinas & was also told it was because it has to be $10 after coupons

    • stephanie

      maybe the machine wasnt on?

    • MaryBeth

      I had the same problem today. I didn’t even try because the 2 ladies in front of me tried and didn’t get the catalinas and didn’t want to tell with returning them because the manager was at the checkout line training the new cashier and she was very unfriendly. Hoping to swing back by tomorrow and test my luck. Now that the deal is wide-spread on the blogs I hope I can still find some in stock!

  21. Shanna

    Going to kmart tomorrow!

  22. Mike

    Will you get 2-$5 Cats if you buy $20 of Cottonelle, Viva, Kleenex, Scott, Glade, Ziploc, Scrubbing Bubbles, Windex, or Libmam, or 3-$5 Cats if you buy $30, etc?

    • ali

      no, you just get one for spending $10+. Best to separate them into different transactions.

      • Mike

        THANKS Ali. I actually did 3 separate transactions here in So.Cal, and all worked fine. Only thing was that you can roll the $5 Cat into next transaction, but NOT the $2 Cat. The $5 Cat states that only 1 Kmart Reward redemption per transaction. The $2 Cat beeped, and they could not even enter it manually. I may try to use the multiple $2 Cats on my next transaction tomorrow and see what happens. There is no verbiage printed on the $2 Cat.

  23. stephanie

    was wondering can you use the both cats on another same transaction of ziplock? and will you get the other cats? or is it like walgreens and if you use the same cats on the products you wont get them again?

  24. betsy

    im struggling with printing coupons on recycle bank, im all set up and it wont let me click the print. Any ideas?

  25. Smellyann

    OT but I have two $10 off promo codes for radioflyer.com if anyone wants them. Email me at melanie_odette at yahoo dot com ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Stephanie

    So I tried this tonight and it didnt work. I am going to return them tomorrow and ask why. They would only take one of my .70/1 coupons, they did not double it, and I did not get any catalina coupons back! I do not know what happened!!! AHHH. Where do you find the info that says you are supposed to get the catalina coupons back? If I can find it maybe I can show it to them??? HELP!!

    • Cheryl

      Stephanie,
      I don’t usually frequent Kmart, but, was able to do this successfully, yesterday. Tonight, it did not work…..but, the cashier was already having trouble with her register, so, I suspect the problem was with her Catalina machine. Customer service helped me when mine did not print tonight.

      I can see a couple of answers to your problem, though. Apparently, some will only accept one “like” coupon……you cannot give them two of the 70 cent coupons in the same transaction……..silly, I know. I ended up buying two of the “vacuum” type Ziploc bags and was able to mix that with two other types of regular Ziploc bags. They had separate coupons for the vacuum style, another coupon for “any” Ziploc bags.
      Also, they will not double any coupons if your total purchase (before coupons) is less than $25. The “info” about the promotion is in their ad/flyer……it is near the back on one of those half pages. Also, if you bought the “zipper” style bags, I’m not sure if those were included or not. They were not marked at the $2.50 price at my stores, so, that may have been part of your problem? I hope that helps you a little.

      I calmly showed the ad and my receipt to customer service….they were totally clueless about the promotion, but, did issue me the $5 back…….not the additional $2, though. That part was not advertised, so, I wouldn’t expect them to honor that sweet little bonus.

  27. WNY Deals & To-Do's

    There’s manufacturer coupons on Target’s site too. I just shared with my readers too – awesome deal Collin!!! Thanks!

  28. Pamela Maciejewski

    Are ziploc bags considered as a grocery item or do you have to buy $25 worth of food items besides the bags before the coupons would double?

  29. qponsavingmommas

    In my area the deal was done and only a $2 cat printed.

  30. diane

    Are there any other good deals at Kmart to use the the 7.00 your receive in Catalina? Since I rarely shop at Kmart i would want to use them the same day I earned then.

  31. Alex

    I went and bought 2 of the Glade twin refills for $12. NO CATALINAS PRINTED!!! The cashier told me that the $5 when you buy $10 was AFTER coupons. And I couldn’t find in the ad the deal about getting the Glade catalina. Are those deals regional? Also, is anyone else having an issue of catalinas not printing bc total after coupons is under $10?

    • Alex

      I forgot to add that I used two $2/1 twin refill Q so my total was $8 after coupons. I *should+ have gotten 2 catalinas back. One for spending $10+ and another for Glade

  32. Kathy

    It worked at the Kmart in Mauldin SC!

  33. Alex

    I am in Crofton, MD. I am soooo bummed bc I was going to do another transaction on TP and paper towels but not if catalinas only print AFTER coupons ๐Ÿ™ I NEED TP TOO! maybe the machine wasn’t on? I dont know…

  34. AmburG

    Worked like an absolute charm here in Huntsville AL! I bought the first 4 boxes and paide $8.40 OOP. 7 in Cat! I used the coupons I could print and found a 50cent coupon in my binder. 4 coupons used in 1st transaction. Then noticed there was 50cent coupon peelies on all the boxes so I started peeling. I did the deal 3 more times and paid OOP 1.90. Mind you I could only use 3 50 cent coupons because the 2.00 from ziploc CAT counts as a coupons! I should of used some clearance reese’s but didnt’ think until after the fact! Anyway, I paid OOP 14.10 for 16 boxes of bags and left with a 7.00 CAT! Which i used at walmart for a purchase I needed to make! 44cents a box is awesome! But my coupons were limited! Good luck! OH, the customer service was ringing me up first and i asked, can this register print a CAT she said no and sent me to jewelry..so ask!

    • AmburG

      ^Sorry I’m sleep deprived! I know my punctuation and wording is terrible but I trust you’ll understand ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Kelly

    In my ad it states that the $5 catalina “is calculated before taxes and after other discounts have been applied” so I’m not sure that it will work. But I do have enough coupons for other items that I should be able to get my total over $25 and have the ziploc coupons doubled. That way even if the $5 catalina doesn’t print it will still be a good deal.

    • AmburG

      My ad stated the same Kelly! But as you see above it worked fine for me!

    • Kelly

      Just got back from Kmart and … It’s working in Wyoming! Printed both catalinas without problems. Even better, the ziploc bags are counting towards the $25 to double coupons! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • ali

      The other “discounts” they are referring to are kmart savings coupons, not manufacturer coupons. I have never once not received any catalinas at kmart because my total was less than the amount after manf. coupons. It works like a charm, unless you check out at customer service or another register without a catalina machine, or if the machine is turned off or out of paper. I usually ask the cashier before I ring anything up if their machine is working. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Kim

    You have to watch the register. I went to one, it didn’t work. Then they refunded my money and went to a different register, printed right out.

  37. Crystal

    I don’t know about other Kmart stores – but mine just started doubling all coupons $1 or less ALL THE TIME – so this will be a super sweet deal!! In my previous experience however couponing there is an absolute nightmare! I avoid it most of the time but I think this may be worth a try . . . .

  38. nadine fontaine

    I got the $5 and $2.50 for buying the Ziplock bags, so went back later to buy just 4 more and tried to use both the cats. Cashier would only take the $5 one plus my $1/2 SS coupon and (2) .50 SS coupons. The $5 cat says “Cannot combine with any other coupon for the same items(s)…” Was she right? I got another $5 and $2.50 cat when I made this purchase.

    • nadine fontaine

      Make that $2 cat not $2.50, sorry.

      • genie

        I had the same happen. If someone can tell if we are doing something wrong it will greatly appreciated.

        • AmburG

          If your using 4 coupons and you have 4 items that may be the problem. I was only able to use 3 50cent coupons with my 5 Cat and 2 Cat b/c the 2 CAT counts as a coupon!

          • nadine fontaine

            Thanks–that could be it! Do we have to keep count of coupons at Kmart like we do at Walgreens? buy 4 items, use no more than 4 coupons? I think I have more $1/2 coupons, hopefully I can buy 4 Ziplocks $10 -$1/2 -$1/2 -$5 cat -$2 cat= $1 + tax. Does that sound right?

            • AmburG

              Yea that should be right. My 2.00 would not go thru and as soon as she took off one of my 50 cent coupons it went thru. They had .25 cent v day candy I should of got as a filler. The 5.00 CAT doesn’t count as a C tho. I got 16 boxes today.

        • diane

          I had a terrible experience at Kmart today trying to complete the Ziploc deal. The first register had a broken Catalina machine, then on the customer service for a refund. The second register had a working Catalina and the first transaction went through without a hitch, I moved to the back of the line to do a second purchase. I had 8 printable coupons(I have access to 5 computers). I used 4 in the first transaction and 4 in the second transaction. The 5.00 Catalina went through without a problem but not the 2.00 one. I spoke to the asst. manager and he couldn’t give me an explanation. By now I had already spent about 1 hour in the store. I went out to my car and called Kmart corp. (on hold for 15-20 min.) to see if I could get an explanation. I never did get one but they are sending me a gift card for all my time. The 2.00 Catalina is a manufacturers coupon and the 5.00 cat is a store coupon. My guess is that the 2.00 would have worked if I had not used 4 printable man. coupons. I wish Kmart / Sears would realize when customers experience frustration every time they shop at their stores they will just stop shopping there. I know it has been over 6 months since I last shopped at Kmart and as soon as I use my 9.00 in cat. that will be the end for me for a while.

          • Ashley

            Yes, you are right in the fact that the 2.00 catalina did not work because you already used 4 other coupons. You could have gotten a filler item for the 2.00 catalina to work though.

  39. Tina

    I just got back from kmart the ziploc deal worked here in central ca. I paid $10-$1-$1-$1.71 from my sears rewards= paid $6.95 out of pocket got back $5 catalina & $2 cat Awesome deal thanks so much

  40. Laura

    Anyone know if the $2 CAT is printing for the Ziploc containers or just the bags?

  41. Laura

    Also, I tried to use 4 of the ziploc vacuum $1/1 coupon on 4 ziploc vacuum bags in a single transaction and was told that they could only use one or split them into four seperate transactions. (These coupons say “one coupon per purchase”, nothing else. After awhile of arguing with customer service, I used one coupon and checked out. I think I’ll be emailing Kmart…

  42. Gary

    when does this deal end?

  43. Marion

    I did the 4 ziploc deal… no catalinas! Not the $5 or the $2 and I bought enough to double some my coupons.(over $25). Sad I didn’t get them…

  44. Jenny

    Has anyone tried this deal in Michigan? I’ve never shopped at Kmart before but thought I’d try it out since I’m at my son’s basketball tournament where a Kmart is located. Thanks in advance!

  45. Marlena

    Went today & it worked for me (Paducah,KY). Bought 4 boxes $10 – $2.10 in man. coupons. Got back $2 & $5 cat. Sweet deal!

  46. Jillian

    My experience today reminds me why I HATE KMART! I bought 4 Ziploc bags, used two $1/2 MQ’s & paid $8.50 oop. NOTHING PRINTED. I went to customer service to see if they would print it out or give me a gift card, and they tried to tell me it didn’t print because I used the coupons and made it under $10. I showed the customer service rep the fine print, which states that you must spend $10 BEFORE taxes & discounts. She didn’t have a thing to say after that. I was furious. I returned everything (she was persistent about making sure I only got the $8.50 I had paid oop), and am in the process of contacting Kmart corporate to tell them about the last experience I’ll ever have with them.

  47. Crystal

    Just did the deal tonight and was suprised there was any bags left. I did 12 transactions and they went as smooth as butter. I was very organized and the cashier was friendly and happy to help me. My only complaint was the other customers. They were very rude and outright mean. I got asked with a smirk if I would really use so many freezer bags. I replied that my 4 year old daughter is g-tube dependant and I blenderize whole foods for her and freeze them for later use so I really do need a bunch of bags. She even has her own deep freezer. The ladies mumbled about hating extreme couponers and went to another lane after huffing and puffing for a few minutes. I don’t understand why some people get so riled up. I waited my turn like everyone else. What gets me the most is that my teenage daughter was with me and had to witness this behaviour. I would have loved to be able to pop in over the course of the week and did the deal a couple of times each trip but Kmart is 25 minutes away and I do have 6 kids so I had to do a big haul. Does anyone else feel they have to defend their coupon usage?

    • Heather

      I’m glad you were able to get what you needed. I get frustrated when people comment, but don’t have it happen all that often. I was asked by a young checker while doing this deal, do you really use all those bags? I live an hour from the nearest K-mart, have a 2 year old, am pregnant, so when I get a deal, I too go all out. I did 6 transaction’s and my step-mom 4. I think as long as we are respectful of the customers that are behind us (not doing more than 1 transaction’s if there is a big line), then it’s their issue! They were low and almost out when we left but didn’t feel too awful since it was 8pm on Saturday and the sale prices were ending Saturday. Good for you on doing what you needed to do… If I needed that many bags for what you use them for I would have done the same thing. Most of the people you will never see again, so no worries is what I say. Happy couponing!

  48. Tracey

    Has anyone done this deal in Minnesota twin cities area? Did it work?
