12 Surefire Signs You're Addicted to Kohl's

Sure, you expect great things... but do you also go to these great lengths to score yourself a deal?

12 Signs You're Addicted to Kohl's
If you're reading this, you're a Slickdealer, and that already means you're a slick shopper -- but are you a slick Kohl's shopper, too? The store is one of the few out there that allows customers to stack multiple coupon codes in one transaction, and when you combine Kohl's Cash and Yes2You rewards points, well, you have a recipe for incredible savings. Just how deep does your Kohl's addiction run? Read on to see if any of these quirky qualities apply to you.

1. You’ve Instagrammed (or even framed) your most impressive Kohl’s receipts.

You know you have! When we did our Kohl's Twitter party last month, we loved hearing all of your tips and tricks for saving money in-store and online, but we were particularly blown away by tales of your record savings (which some of you did, in fact, frame.) We don't blame you when you're talking about 90% off retail price. You probably even got the frame for next to nothing, too.

2. You immediately charge full speed ahead when you see a gold star on a sign.

A gold star is the signature beacon for Kohl's Gold Star Clearance, so it makes sense that die-hard Kohl's shoppers may get a little excited when they see one. Try not to be too disappointed when it turns out to be an imitator, though. Think of George Constanza at the birthday party when he sees smoke billowing out of the kitchen. Just don't knock down any old ladies in your excitement for a good deal. That's never cool.

3. “What’s in your wallet?” has an entirely different meaning to you than it does the rest of the population.

To most other people, this catchphrase is associated with Capital One. For Kohl's shoppers, though, it's a reminder to check your Kohl's mobile app to see all of your current coupons, Kohl's Cash earnings and rewards points. Checking it now, aren't you? We know. We'll wait.

4. You plan your outings with your grandparents on Wednesdays for a reason.

The store offers a 15% off discount for customers aged 55 and over each Wednesday, which just so happens to be the same day you catch up with your 55+ relatives. Coincidence, right? Shameful... but resourceful. And hey, the family that shops together stays together -- and in this case, saves together, too.

 

5. Your Kohl’s credit card actually shows physical signs of wear and tear.

If you spend more than $600 a year at Kohl's, you're shortchanging yourself by not applying for the store's charge card. It comes with plenty of incentives that can save you money all year long. If yours looks a little weathered, congratulations. You're doing it right. (As long as you're paying off your balance in full each month, of course.)

6. You can picture the Kohl’s coupon stacking order like a flow chart in your mind.

You know the drill: category-specific codes first, Kohl's Cash and Yes2You rewards if you have them, a free shipping coupon if you have room and a sitewide percent-off coupon code thrown in at the end for good measure. If only coupon-stacking were a competitive sport.

7. You feel like a bad@ss when you earn Kohl’s Cash on a $48 purchase.

Earning $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend? Ha. That's for amateurs. The store awards Kohl's Cash even when the purchase totals $48, and hitting that magic number is the ultimate rush.

8. You get your gambling fix through mailers and mystery deals.

Forget Vegas or Bingo night with grandma (unless it's Wednesday night.) You get your thrills each month with Kohl's mailers and email mystery deals. Will you earn 20, 30 or even 40% off your purchase? Do you even have something in mind to buy? Who cares? Roll the dice, and let the chips fall where they may.

9. You get nervous when someone is at the Kohl’s kiosk, because you fear your little secret is finally out.

The thing about Kohl's in-store kiosks is that they're underutilized, which is great. We don't want these things getting crowded like a Starbucks on a Double-Star rewards day. You know they're the place to go to score free shipping anytime you need it. But other people are allowed to use it. On occasion. Keep calm.

10. Beyonce’s “Bow Down” lyrics play in your head when you apply four coupon codes to a sale item.

Applying four coupon codes to an already-reduced item is like hitting the deal jackpot. A $60 dress for $5?! Time for yet another receipt in a frame.

11. You shamelessly utilize the store's return policy.

Kohl's is known for having a generous return policy, and that's just fine by you. In love with that Croft & Barrow trench coat but not sure what size is best? No problem. You'll just order it in all the sizes. This tactic pretty much guarantees free shipping and brings the dressing room straight to your front door.

12. You already know what you'll be doing between the hours of midnight and 3 a.m. EST when you can combine 30% off with $10 off $30.

And if it's snoozing, you're losing. So here's the deal: Kohl's offers cardholders 30% off sitewide once or twice per month, and it's usually followed with a $10 off $30 sale that begins the next day... well, sort of. For a three hour window (yes, midnight to 3 a.m. EST), you can apply both promotions to your order. Use both codes to score impressive savings. Sleep can wait.

So be honest... you're reading this with a Kohl's tab open on your browser, a stack of Kohl's cash in your hands and a receipt shrine in the background, right? It's okay. We won't judge. Just be sure you have our Kohl’s coupon page bookmarked so that you never miss any stacking opportunities.

I recently visited the local Kohl's for the first time in years. It was a total mess, not much above a Kmart. There were probably five employees in the whole store. The kitchen and dining area was a wreck and the display items were covered in a layer of dust. Men's clothing was completely disorganized, with nothing related grouped together, and I had to run around the entire area three times just to find a simple item. There's another Kohl's store about ten miles down the road that I may check out. If it's anything like this one, I'll never shop there again.

That's why I mostly shop online at Kohl's.

Cool one. Some of them are news to me though I consider myself as fan of Kohl's and most of my shopping is at Kohls only.

They don't give it to us at our local stores UNLESS our order is $50 before tax.

Well, that's unfair! :-( Even on the Kohl's site, they promise to round a $48 purchase to $50 [kohls.com]. Hmm, this is interesting. I wonder how common that is.

Or even better, combining the 30% off with a $10 off $30 with a $10 off $30 or $10 off $40 department specific code. I made about 25 orders that one night earlier this month.

I dont know why but my 20% off code was reduced on a product to the after 10 off 30 amount i.e. I bought shorts for 12.99 and I used a 20% off code and it gave me savings of $2.60 then I applied my 10 off code from discover and the 20% off savings went down to $0.60 I thought it would stack but it just cut out from taxes and the 20% off discount. Well I guess I cant complain my total still came out to $2.50 for the shorts =P
