Customer Questions/Comments:

I have set up a email address for customer issues that will help me organize my mail boxes and allow my team/leadership greater insight into the type of issues being raised. I will still be the one responding (I may eventually enlist help from my direct reports but for now just me)

KmartGamerHelpMe@searshc.com is the email address

Important: If a coupon did not print or you did not receive the value of the promotion due to a store issue I will compensate the difference. I only need the following (Please copy and paste the format below for quicker service):


  • Name ____________________
  • Phone Number ____________________
  • Mailing Address ____________________
  • Picture of your receipt
  • Short description of incident (a novel, though enjoyed, is not required :) )
I try very hard to get back with any emails I receive within 48 hours (weekend not included). Gift cards issued usually take 7-10 days to arrive once confirmed.

I will not be creating this FAQ. I will rely on you the CAG community. If you want this post updated with a consistent question please email me at Josh.deane@searshc.com and I will copy it in here and credit your username (please include).

If you have a deal question that is not listed here feel free to drop me a line and I'll answer it within 48 hours:

Q: What day do promotions begin? What day do they end?
A: Typically, promotions begin on either a Sunday (general sales/deals) or a Tuesday (release week deals), and last until Saturday. If there is an exception, it will be specifically called out as such in the deal itself.

Q: What happened to the Gaming Coupons?
A: Due to abuse and fraud, gaming coupons have been temporarily suspended and replaced with Shop Your Way Rewards bonus points. Gaming Coupons are expected to return in time for the Nintendo 3DS launch on March 27.

Q: Shop Your Way Rewards Points?
A: Shop Your Way Rewards Points are the currency of Kmart’s rewards program Shop Your Way Rewards (abbreviated SYWR). The program offers a base of 10 points per dollar spent. Points can be redeemed just like cash, with 1000 points being worth $1. To find out more about the program, please see this link: www.shopyourwayrewards.com/sywr/faq_do

Q: Do the Collector’s Edition/Limited Edition/etc. versions of a game also get the deal?
A: Normally, yes. Any exceptions are normally noted prior to the deal becoming active. Sometimes the deals on the special editions of a game are better than the regular edition.
One such example of this was with the Epic Mickey release the week ofNovember 30, 2010. The regular edition received a $20 gaming coupon, while the Collector’s Edition received a $30 coupon.

Q: How do I find out if Kmart will be stocking a specific game’s special edition, and how can I try and get stock of it allocated to a local store?
A: Send an email to SHC Stock Boy at Andrew.Moench@searshc.com. Make sure to include the game, platform, and your local store’s address, and the SHC Gamer crew will make an attempt to allocate stock to your local store.
Note: No guarantees about stock can be made, and this is not a reservation. It is still possible that your store will not receive a copy, or that it might sell out prior to your attempt to purchase it.

Q: What about pre-orders? Can I pre-order X game at my local Kmart?
A: Kmart.com does pre-orders, but any special release week deals may not be active prior to release day, so it is advised to purchase only on release day or later. Kmart stores, however, Do not do pre-orders at this time.

Q: What is the limit on the number of copies I can purchase of a title to get the release week deals?
A: 2. The limit is two per customer. Release week deals during February and March are in the form of SYWR points, so the limitation is based off the SYWR card scanned. Once the coupons return, the limit will still be 2 per customer.

Q: I was looking for an XBLA points card/PSN card, but couldn’t find any in the electronics section. What’s wrong?
A: Sometimes, the XBLA points cards or PSN cards are stocked in the “Gift Card Mall” along with other prepaid cards. If you can’t find any in the electronics section, check any of the Gift Card racks that your local Kmart store may have. Stores are responsible for reordering these cards, if you have a location that does not have any represented on the sales floor please let me know at Josh.deane@searshc.com
A2: In response to current New Jersey legislation, Kmart took down all stored value cards including PSN and XBLA cards. If you see any competitors who have not done this please let me know as I would love to reintegrate these cards.

Q: A game I am interested in is having a promotion where you buy the game and get a $20 PSN card or 1600 XBLA points card free. Can I buy the PS3 version and get the XBLA card, or buy the Xbox 360 version of the game and get the PSN card free?
A: Unless otherwise noted, yes you can mix and match between the system of the game and the system the points card is for.

Q: Something didn’t ring up right when I purchasing something at Kmart. What should I do?
A: First, make sure that it’s actually ringing up incorrectly. If it is, then don’t panic! Simply send me (SHC-Gamer) an email at Josh.Deane@searshc.com. Be sure to include your Name, Phone Number, Mailing Address, a picture of your receipt (preferred, or the receipt number), and a short description of your problem. If you have a problem where you overpaid for something, a Gift Card for the difference will be mailed to you. It will arrive within 7-10 business days in most cases.

Q: I found a great deal at a local store, but I want to price match it to Kmart. Is that possible?
A: No. Kmart does not price match.

Q: I asked an employee at the store about the deal. They said that the deal wasn’t going on because it wasn’t in the weekly ad (or some other excuse). Is that true?
A: If it is advertised on the KmartGamer.com blog, the deal is active at your local Kmart store. The Kmartgamer.com blog is featured in the circular as the heading of the entertainment section for customers and store associates to reference. Iffor some reason a deal does not ring up correctly for you please feel free to email me at Josh.deane@searshc.com and I will investigate and correct the issue for you as quickly as possible.

Q: Do Sears stores honor Kmart promotions?
A: Kmart offers do not cross over to Sears unless otherwise specified on the offer itself.

Kmart Savings Coupon Guide:


  • Coupons can only be redeemed once. The customer unique barcode will shut down once used. This will free up digital receipt coupons however. They will be able to be used now.
  • Some promotions will require you to be a Shop Your Way Reward member to cut down on potential return fraud.
  • Coupons with different barcodes can be stacked but coupons with the same barcode cannot be stacked
    • Example #1 Halo Reach $25 coupon and Dead Rising 2 $20 coupon can be used on one purchase
    • Example #2 Halo Reach $25 coupon and another Halo Reach $25 coupon cannot be used on one purchase
  • Using a coupon on an item with another coupon offer will not stop the new coupon from printing out
  • The total purchase must at least equal the total value of the coupon pre-tax
  • Generally speaking, Kmart Savings Coupons are valid for 45 days unless otherwise noted
  • They print off on a second receipt at checkout and are available at all Kmart locations.
    • Always check that you have been given your coupon!
  • Sometimes the coupons are valid only for specific platforms or products which are called out specifically on the coupon and advertising vehicle.
  • Multiple coupons will print out at check out, you do not have to do each on separate transactions
    • The exception is when you expect multiple coupons for multiple items from the same promo - in that case, they need to be rung up separately.
    • Gaming coupons are valid on Points/Live/PSN Cards unless otherwise stated in the promotion
  • We do not offer rainchecks on items with coupons.
  • Gaming coupon offers that are in ad are actually available in all locations, even non-circular areas
  • Instant conditional offers with PSN/XBLA cards are also available in all locations, even non-circular areas
  • There is a delay in the activation of the coupon until the following Sunday
    • For example, buy Dead Rising 2 and get a $20 Gaming coupon on Tuesday, the code will not be effective until that Sunday.
  • They are currently not able to be redeemed online
  • Coupons are only redeemable at Kmart
  • There are no limit to coupons issued in store. Stores do not "run out" of them. If the item is instock and is part of a coupon promotion it will print
  • Technically coupons cannot be used on B1GX events. Enforcement varies by store.
  • I cannot help refund a lost or expired coupon unless an action by the store caused a particular issue. We will follow up with the store to ensure the issue is fixed.
Standard language on the gaming coupons:

$XX off regular, sale or clearance priced
gaming purchase in-store of $XX or more (before
taxes and after other discounts have been applied)
in a single transaction. Limit 1 of this coupon
barcode redeemable per transaction. Coupon can be
used with other gaming coupons in the same
transaction. Savings for combined coupons cannot
exceed pre-tax gaming purchase. Not valid on Buy
One, Get One events; non-merchandise; federal or
state regulated items; prior purchases; if acquired
from a non Sears Holdings-approved channel; if
reproduced; and/or, where prohibited by law. Any
other use constitutes fraud. Coupon value applied
and pro-rated across all qualifying items; including
qualifying items purchased in addition to the
minimum requirements or limits and will be deducted
from any refund. Cash value 1/20 of a cent. Valid at
all Kmart store locations.

FYI - Kmart DOES NOT price match in this manner.

Sears does not necessarily possess the same assortment as Kmart.

[FONT="]http://www.sears.com...ll=WF&adCell=WF[/FONT]

[FONT="]If you find a lower price on an identical branded item with the same features (in Consumer Electronics identical brand and model number) currently available for sale at another local competitor retail store, Sears will match that price plus, give you 10% of the difference. Just bring in the original advertisement to a sales associate at the time of, or within 14 days after, your purchase.[/FONT]

[FONT="]Online Retail Competitors [/FONT]

[FONT="]If you find a lower online price (including shipping, handling and delivery) on an identical branded item with the same features (in Consumer Electronics identical brand and model number) currently available from a local competitor retail store honoring its own online price and the item is currently available for sale and delivery in your area, Sears will match that total price Plus, give you 10% of the difference. Just print the ordering page, including shipping, handling and delivery, and bring it to your Sears store at the time of, or within 14 days after, your purchase. If you are purchasing the item from sears.com, please fill out a Price Match form.[/FONT]

[FONT="]Sears Holdings[/FONT]

[FONT="]If you find a lower price on an identical item (in Consumer Electronics identical brand and model number) currently available for sale and delivery in your area from another Sears Holdings retail format or website, Sears will match that price, but will not provide the additional 10% of the difference. Sears will not price match limited time “Online Only” events, “Special Online Price”, conditional “Online Only Special Offers” on our websites, Sears Outlet, or searsoutlet.com. Only items listed as Sold by Sears or Sold by Kmart are eligible for price matching on our websites. All other rules for qualification apply. [/FONT]

[FONT="]Exclusions[/FONT]

[FONT="]Sears will not price match competitors’ items that are limited in quantity, offered for sale for less than six hours during a day, or offered for sale during Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, the weekend after Thanksgiving, and the Monday after Thanksgiving. Sears will not price match competitors’ or our websites bonus or free offers, special offers, bundled offers, rebates, financing offers, coupons, clearance or closeout prices, or prices on used, damaged, returned, open box or display merchandise. Sears will not price match services. Sears will not match typographical errors or competitors’ prices that result from a price match. Photo copies of advertisements or receipts will not be accepted as verification of competitor pricing.
[/FONT]

[FONT="]Price Protection Policy[/FONT]
[FONT="]
Buy with confidence from Sears. If an item you have purchased from Sears goes on sale for a lower price within 14 days of your purchase, Sears will refund the difference.[/FONT]

[FONT="]To claim a Price Protection Policy adjustment, go to your original Sears store where the purchase was made with your receipt. If your purchase was made on Sears.com, please fill out a Price Protection form . You will be given a refund for the difference of the original selling price and the current advertised/reduced price. Apparel clearance merchandise and conditional “Online Only Special Offers” do not qualify for Price Protection Policy adjustments.[/FONT]
[FONT="]Unless otherwise stated, promotions with a specific time window such as early open specials, one -day sales or “Online Only” events will be honored under the Price Protection policy only if the receipt is presented during the promotional time window. Deferred interest financing is not a price, and is not subject to the Price Protection Policy.[/FONT]

what is? The KMART 5.0?..

Better, bigger, bloodier...cheaper!



BTW: Bulletstorm at 39.99 is a nice deal... Fun game too.. I loved it.. The single player story does get a tad dry near the end however, and multiplayer isn't as good as I had hoped. Still a solid game at 40 bucks.

He's gonna take the bar, snap it in half, and smack them over the head with it so hard that they'll forget their even stocking Portal 2. A.K.A. He's going to put out a very nice deal.

I asked this in Kmart 4.0 but then the thread closed so didnt get answered but I see you are offering a 20 dollar giftcard for those who are unable but want the 4000 point or 50 dollar PSN card. My question is, why is it a 20 dollar giftcard when we are supposed to be saving 30 dollars on the cards?

Because of the out of pocket expense for those that have to buy the points cards.

Basically NJ residents are picking up Crysis 2 with a $30 gift card (once you include the $10 of SYWR credit); not too shabby :)

Ok I guess that makes sense. I am looking at it the other way where if they didnt have the cards, they would get a 30 dollar gift card because thats what the savings would be.

quick question....

Just bought the KZ3 bundle PS3 and got a $50 gift card last night. Is there anyway way I could do a return/rebuy and get KZ2 for free?
