What are the hours and when should I call?

Kmart operates the call center for this 866-562-7848 phone number Mon-Fri 9am-5pm ET. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 2,990 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Kmart call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Kmart phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Kmart staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Kmart is Friday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday. Again, this is based on a sample of 2,990 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Tuesday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Thursday.
But if you use our free call and talk for me or wait on hold for me service, you don't really need to worry about average wait times.

The best time to call Kmart

In summation, the best day to call Kmart is Friday. This is not the day with the shortest wait on hold in the phone system, but we still recommend it for its ideal combination of low call volume and short hold times. Plus we believe that Kmart staffs the call center well on Friday.

Calling this Kmart Customer Number

I was looking at buying a new water heater for my house, and it occurred to me that Kmart still stocks large appliances. I thought that I might have better luck with the pricing at Kmart versus paying the plumber to come install it for me. I figured at the very least, I had nothing to lose by checking out the website. However, I couldn't find some of the exact specifications that I wanted and this is not the type of order that you take a chance on. 

With that in mind, I went ahead and called the customer number. I was in for quite a surprise, however, as it seems that Kmart goes out of its way to tell you to just go online and chat with someone. At first, it seemed hopeful, as an automated agent answered the phone and said, "Thank you for calling Kmart.com. If you are calling about online orders from Kmart.com, press 1. For repair, press 2. For Sears credit card, press 3. For delivery and installation, press 4. For parts, press 6. For protection agreements, press 6. For all other inquiries, press 7."

I chose 1 since that fit what I needed, and then was given more options with a disclaimer that I could go online for help. This time it said, "You can visit Sears.com to manage your current order, place a new order, or chat with one of our customer service agents. If you need to make a new purchase or for product information, press 1. If you have questions about an existing order, press 2. For password reset, press 3. For all other inquiries, press 4."

I pressed 1 for product information and then chose 1 again for help with large appliances, and instead of getting an agent, I got this disclaimer: "For assistance with all new orders, please visit Kmart.com. Here you can manage a current order, place a new order, or chat with one of our associates for assistance."

As soon as the message ended on me, it hung up abruptly. I called again because I thought I had done something wrong, but sure enough, it hung up on me again. I'm quite disappointed that even for large purchases Kmart won't offer customer support outside of web chat.

To qualify, the product must be in stock and available for immediate purchase at both Kmart and the competitor's store. In-store price match requests can be made at any register or customer service counter. Online purchases are also covered under this policy. You can reach out to Kmart's customer support with the competitor's listing and your order details. Kmart's price match policy aims to provide customers with competitive prices, maintaining their commitment to customer satisfaction.

More Kmart Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact Kmart customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Kmart Customer Service Live Chat

searskmart.force.com - Customer Service
Fill out the form for online chat
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, Kmart provides this option.

Kmart Customer Help Desk / Web Support

kmart.com - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Kmart customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
