Question Coupon won't double if it is over half the value of the items?

I just went today and had the $1.50/2 of febreeze coupons spent $25.00 but the coupon would't double. So I ask the manager and she said it would be over half the value of the items so it wouldn't double.

Anyone else have this problem?

That makes no sense. The febreze is 2 for $5. The coupon is $1.50/2, it would double to $3.00/2 making it $2.00 oop for the febreze. Did the cashier hit the correct item on the screen to apply the double? Did you use a kmart coupon on the items that did not double or any item in your transaction?

BTW: I'm still obsessing over this because its really beginning to bother me when managers make up random stuff to justify not following through on the offer Kmart has put into place.

Plenty of people are doubling coupons to over half the value of the item and/or total value of the item for a free and having no issues.

I'm really wondering if the cashier didn't hit the right item to apply the double, because on their screen a bunch of buttons pop up with the items listed and they have to select the correct one. I've had a cashier make a mistake before and hit the wrong item which negated my double. I watch them carefully now.

Probably that, or maybe only picking 1 item instead of 2 (though even that way it should still give you the extra $1).

For a minute there it sounded like they were Price Chopper
(Local joke - that chain in NY used to only double coupons up to 1/2 your order - so if your total was $20, the coupons would stop doubling after it was reduced to $10).

There are some coupons that are 1/2 that won't double because it doesn't attach to two items. It's confusing. However there are some that some along that won't do it on the system. My Quaker 1/2 coupon would never double. They are making up whatever excuse sounds good. Truth is, it is their system.

She did the buttons for the febreeze and each chashier had a print out with the rules of the couopns on it. I didn't personally see ot but the manager said it was on it.

I've ran into this problem many times. And this is how I see it. If the coupon is 1.50/2 and the item is only $2.50 each (2/5) the coupon will only double to $2.50 and not $3 even if you have them attach both items.

I remember when they were doing $1 doubles. I had $1/2 Hershey mq that should have doubled to $2 making both items free. It did not double at all because the item was under $2 even though they attached both items on the q.

I've built a febreze into my scenario for today so I can see first hand what is going on.

I did it today and it works. The cashier has to select both febreze items for it to double. Mine doubled without incident.

Try to stick to your guns on this one, because you should ask them where it says that in the ad. The ad clearly states will double up to $2 coupon in value, so your point should be pretty clear already.

I did my Kmart trip on Sunday. I bought 3 6pks Olay Bar Soap. They were $5.49 each - $2 MQ that doubled to $4, more than half. I also bought two Loreal Advanced Haircare products @ $4.24 each, and used my $2 off coupon that doubled to $4.

I think we are just trying to establish why a coupon doesn't double when it's off two instead of one.

It is Kmart!!!!!!
All the IPs at both my Kmart here wouldn't scan, luckily, I had a cashier knows how to press some magical button and had a screen pop up, and then just manually select the item for coupons to apply. Not so much luck last time, I actually " broke" the scanner.

I quilt using the $/2 at doubling events, they have always give me problem.

I had a headache too because my Ziploc coupon attached to my Glade items and the cashier refused to honor my glade coupons and was really really nasty about it too.
