Shopping at Kohls

I never understood what the big deal was about Kohls.  We have one within walking distance of us and Josh got their credit card but we've never really bought anything there.

Two weekends ago we discovered why people love that store so much.

We got a 30% off coupon in the mail if we use their charge card.  No big deal because we never spend more than we have because I always like to go straight home and pay it off (high interest rate freaks me out!).  I wanted to get a carpet cleaner so with a 30% off coupon it would be a good deal.

They didn't have the carpet cleaner I wanted in the store so I ordered it online with free shipping.  I bought this one and it was already on sale for $159.99.  I only paid $112!  I used to have a bit of a carpet cleaning addiction when we lived in our apartment and it's been a long 2 years without one!  I can't wait to use it, I'm probably going to be a mix of disgusted and totally excited when I see how dirty our carpets are (we only have carpets upstairs but I'm pretty sure Annika has peed on the floor in every single room!).

Then while we were in the store we decided to look around at the sales.  I got two tee shirts for $6.99 each and a long sleeved shirt for $6.99.  Josh got two t-shirts and a pair of jeans.

We moved over to the "home" section and bought 4 towels, 2 hand towels, 2 washcloths and a rug for our kitchen that were all either on sale or clearance.  We desperately needed towels since we realized we hadn't bought any new ones in over 4 years!!  They aren't warn out or anything, we just needed some nice new ones!

Total for everything we bought $90.  We had a savings of $150!

Then after all the stuff we bought in store, the carpet cleaner online and when I signed up for coupons through e-mail we received a total of $35 in Kohls cash to spend PLUS we can still use our 30% off coupons!  That's a crazy savings and it's crazy that we just have free money to spend.

Of course, we'll always have to time our shopping out right with this store but when we do we'll really get a deal!

Kohls did not pay me for my opinion or ask me to write this post.  I'm totally not cool enough for companies to approach me!  This entire post is 100% my own opinion and I just wanted to share the deals we got!


  1. Glad you got some good deals! I almost never shop at Kohl's because it's too far from my house. Then when I am in there, usually nothing is on sale that I want. But I love the stuff they have that benefits a charity. It's usually a book and stuffed animal set, and each is usually $5. 100% goes to the charity, so I like that.

  2. I go to Kohl's once in a while, they do have some good deals. I have a carpet shampooer and I love it! Did all the carpets in my house just over a month ago. With two dogs and two kids I try to do them all twice a year. I can't believe how dirty that water gets.
