Kmart Christmas card, Toy Clearance and school supply shopping

Stopped by Kmart today as I heard they are having their toy clearance. The clearance toys are an additional 50% off the ticketed price. The selection is still pretty good and I was able to pick up a few things for my boys.

Additionally I found out about a program Kmart started last year and is going on now. It is similar to having a Christmas Club account at a bank, except with a gift card!

Just start a new card (available at the registers) with at least $20 and add money to the value anytime you wish. On November 15th, Kmart will credit your card with an additional 3% of the value up to $100. The cards should be credited by November 28th. The card doesn't expire, so you can use it for Christmas or anytime! This is a great way to save money for holiday shopping, or even getting school clothes for the kids. Check with the store if you have any questions.

Now is also the season for school supply shopping. Keep your eyes peeled for the deals at each place. Staples, Kmart, Walmart and Walgreens have all had good deals. Remember to price match- just ask the store. I have been able to price match at all except Staples- but check with them too!

If you participate in Operation Christmas Child by filling shoe boxes, school supplies are a hot item. Pick them up now for pennies! Or if you have crafty kids like I do, this is when I try to replenish stock!!

  1. Hey, just thougth I'd let you know that I have had luck with the Portage Staples pricematching as well as taking competitor's coupons. There's a great $10 off a $25 purchase on the Office Depot's site that they accepted for me so I made $10 profit and got $25 worth of products last week! sweet deals for the donation stash!
