My Kmart Doubles (Second Trip)

I had been reading on Hot Coupon World that Kmart was now going to be accepting Internet Printable coupons. Because I always have so much trouble and opposition to coupons at my only Kmart store, I made sure to print out the Kmart press release regarding the IP coupons as well as an email I had received about them being accepted. I did 2 transactions, one for insert coupons and on for IP's in case I had to argue. We ended up being in the store until they were literally turning the lights off because the cash register kept locking up and having to be rebooted. This happened 3 times! We were finally able to pay for my first transaction and then had to ring up the IP transaction. He never said a word when I haded him the printables, so i was shocked. Of course he could have just wanted to go home! Anyway, here's the math from this trip:

Total Before Coupons: $100.37
Total Money Spent: $29.16
Total Saved: $71.21 (71%)
