Shop Your Way members: Kmart has its Super Double Coupon promotion this week on grocery, health and beauty items for ShopYourWay members (which you should definitely join if you shop at Kmart). Your coupons will be doubled up to 99 cents. You’ll get great deals, particularly with your 55- and 75-cent coupons. For example, Balance Bars on sale “buy one, get one free.” At an estimated full price of $1.59 each, the sale price would be 80 cents each when you buy two. Use the 55-cent Sept. 11 SmartSource coupon to get the bars free if your store accepts two coupons on a BOGO deal. If not, you could still use one coupon and pay just 24 cents per bar. Check the CouponMom.com website for all the best coupon bargains on the Kmart list.

Also included in this +UP promotion is the Oral-B 3D White Vivid Manual Toothbrush (single count).
