With this coupon I'm wondering if I can buy 2 $9.99 clearance games and then essentially get them both for $5 with the $15 off coupon. Or does it have to be used on ONE game priced $15 or higher.

Okay, just to be clear... did the glitch (which now seems to have been fixed by K-Mart as people are reporting) result in you getting the $15 gaimng coupon with:

A) Any amount of purchase in gaming
B) $15 worth of gaming purchases (as noted on the topic title)
C) $5 worth of gaming purchases

A. The $15 in the title refers to the minimum required for the purchase you'll be using the coupon on.

Yeah, I know what the coupon is for. I've bought plenty of games at K-mart and received those $15 coupons before.

But to get those coupons while buying like $2 games on clearance... man, too bad I missed out on this deal!

A. Any amount of purchase (spefically games though, it was reported here that accessories did not work).


So, yeah, we got coupons with our penny games when the glitch was live...

Debating using coupons to pick up cheap games for the backlog or using them to flip Thanksgiving day Kmart games to Gamestop.

Same here. I will probably buy 2-3 games (some to flip, one to keep) and use the rest of my coupons on MS Points because those will never really drop in price as compared to games. And, to buy MS Points at 75% off is just never really going to happen ever again.

True...same with PSN. I could resubscribe to PS+ on the cheap and get a ton of free games and discounts.

Thanks for the information. If I come in and do like 5 separate transactions to use all my coupons would I get in trouble? I doubt it, but you never know. I was planning on just buying $20 Wii U cards with all my coupons for 75% off games.


Unless you have a douchebag working, you'll be fine. The coupons say transaction, and you'll be doing multiple transactions. If you were to come into my store, you'd be perfectly fine no matter who it is since management wouldn't care. Just might not want to do it closer to Thanksgiving when it's busy, but that's just courtesy.

How many coupons did you get? Were they just extremely cheap purchases?

If you really are banned, just get a new account. You might have to use a different number, but your coupons should still work all the same.

My account was suspended. I made 9 transactions the night I went to Kmart. I just called the 800 number on the back of the card and they restored my account. The guy I spoke too said that I had too many transactions in a short period of time.

Just got back from the Kmart. They only had two basic Wii Us at my store! :roll:

Anyway, I got a copy of ZombiU with one of my $15 coupons. There were no eshop money cards so I'll go back later this week when they'll probably be stocked.

For some reason their ZombiU box had a "Do Not Sell until 11/20" sticker on it. Luckily the guy working knew his shit, but make sure you tell them that it will NOT lock out the register if they scan it.

ZombiU with the $15 off plus the $10 coupon was pretty slick IMO. :)

Wtf the Kmarts I went to only had 1 copy of ass creed and ESPN sports and no other wii u games and accessories to be found. Would most of the Wii u stuff still be in the back? Ended up getting Just Cause 2 PS3 and NBA Jam PS3 for 5 each after using the coupons.

Any word yet on if you can use both the regular $15, as well as the additional coupon some of us received by email with a different SKU?

History would indicate no, however I am sure someone will report back after trying. I'm gonna head out to kmart soon.

I can confirm that you can only use one of them. If you try to use both the hard copy from the register and the copy from the e-mail, the coupon will error out with a message "exceeded the allowed usage" or something to that nature.

Good news is that you can use multiple coupons along as you're only apply one coupon per transaction (but not both e-mail and register coupon you got from the same transaction). The K-mart customer service was very nice and they had no problem transacting each game separately.

One challenge I had with K-mart is lack of inventory and pretty high pricing, even on older games:cry:. To top that off, the pricing is different from K-mart to K-mart and online. Pretty screwed up system but I guess that's the reason why some of us got the $15 coupon so I can't complain much.

Also, I'm sure some of you figured out that these coupons are in-store only. Funny thing is the online recognized the coupon but it won't accept it and shows message that this coupon is "in-store only".

I managed to get few $20 games for $5 after the coupon such as Uncharted 3 (vanilla version), Portal 2, and Deus Ex.

Yea....but at least I got the games I wanted for $5 without waiting in line or having to be the expert computer sniper in Amazon's lightning deal so this was not a bad deal.

I did have to go to three different K-mart (planned ahead), spent 2 gallons in gas (=$7.70) offset by $7 Shop Your Way Rewards points that was going to expire tomorrow so all turned out good.

I also had some nice conversation with several people who were there early to get hands on the new Wii U being released today.
