VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
I was buying a 2 piece dress at Kohl's for a wedding. I picked it out, it was marked $40 for top, $40 for bottom. I thought, ok i need it so I'll get it.
At the checkout it rang up at $20 per piece. It wasn't even advertised.
Some of these offers and sales are not as good as you think once you realize the little marketing tricks behind them. Many stores run these buy one at regular price get the second item for 50% off. Not the best deal once you think about it. First, if you don't intent to buy a second item there is no benefit. Second, even if you are buying a second item you only get 50% off the LOWEST price item. If you had just gotten 30-40 % off ALL items you would have saved more in the long run.
In the case of Kohl's, I noticed they usually don't offer the regular discount coupons in combination with the Kohl's ca**** usually one or the other. Just another marketing gimmick.
I would like to make a correction..
"Kohl's Cash can then be used on your next $10 and up purchase."
When using your Kohl's Cash, you can spend it on something that is LESS than $10. The associate will scan the Kohl's Cash and then be prompted, by the register, to "Insert Kohl's Cash" to reprint the remaining balance so the customer can have for later use. HOWEVER, the Kohl's Cash is not valid for Kohl's Cares products as those are 100% charitable items, Kohl's does not earn any prophet.
If you get a $10 gift card in the mail from Kohl's, then your purchase must be $10 or more.
Just clarifying as a former associate. :)
