Kohls: Apple Watch Series 1 42mm @ $210 effectively after $90 Kohls Cash

$210.00

Seems Kohl's Black Friday event of $15 Kohls Cash on $50 spent is live.

Hence, got 42mm Apple Watch Series 1 @ $210 after adding a $1.7 filler and $90 Kohls cash.

This is the best I could find for Apple Watch Series 1 42mm.


Apple Watch Series 1 @ http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-...t-band.jsp

My $1.7 filler, Women's Holiday Sock @ http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-...-socks.jsp after NOVSALE15 promo code.


Target has Apple Watch 38mm for $198, but no deal on 42mm, so this is closest you can get.


Hope this helps.

I wouldn't equate getting $90 Kohl's cash as effectively getting the watch for $210. Kohl's cash is worth less than its indicated cash value since the portion paid with Kohl's cash cannot be discounted with coupons.

I understand that but this closet I could find series 1 42mm this season. There is always something that we can get at Kohl's from those $90 Kohls cash. Instead of plainly paying $299 for this watch anywhere else.

See the other 2 threads on this. I gave a detailed price breakdown on the thread previous to this one from yesterday.

Also...I don't know who Kohls is trying to fool, but they don't even have the watches in stock! The ONLY ONE (literally) they have is the ugly space grey Series 1 (a waste of money btw - either save $100+ on an original, first generation, or pay for the added features of standalone GPS, waterproofing, a brighter screen, etc.) and no other colors (no rose gold as pictured on the BF ad) and NO SERIES 2 AT ALL.

It's infuriating. The sale started 4 hours ago and still no inventory.

You used to be able to return what you paid with kohl's cash and get a refund as a gift card but they changed it a few weeks ago I believe

Here is my price breakdown and comment from one of the other threads on this deal:

So.....the bad news:


#1: Unless there's something I have not found, inventory is non-existent. Series 1 = 38mm space grey aluminum sport band only. Series 2 = not available.

Bad news #2: the Kohl's cash must be used 11/28 to 12/5 only. You have a WEEK to properly spend that money during post-BF low inventory and who knows what sales.


Potential good news: if you have a device with Samsung Pay, you can purchase Kohls gift cards to use on this ....saving 20% instantly, not in some potential credit later. Max 5 cards/day, $500 total limit.

So, on the 38mm Series 2, you can purchase 5 gc on day 1 - $250 gc for $200 and save $50. On Day purchase 2 gc for $100 and save $20. Total savings = $70. On the 38mm Series 1 you save $50 ($250 gc for $200).

That's Series 2 space grey 38mm only for $299 paid out of pocket at checkout and a potential addt'l savings of $120 ($105 KC + $15 Yes2You Rewards). Series 1 space grey or rose gold 38mm only for $219 paid out of pocket at checkout and a potential addt'l savings of $85 ($75 KC & $10 Yes2You Rewards).

IF you like the colors/options and IF you have Samsung Pay and get the 20% Kohls gift cards, and IF you are definitely going to use that KC + Y2Y reward certs during Nov 28-Dec 5, THEN this a great deal. Otherwise....ugh.


Breakdown:

Samsung Pay Kohls GC Deal (the only True savings): 38mm Series 2 [$369 - $70 KGC savings] = 19% off. 38mm Series 1 [$269 - $50 KGC savings] = 18.6% off.

Potential Total Kohls Cash + Yes2You savings if you can use together and if you can/will use them: 38mm Series 2 [$369 - $105 KC - $15 Y2Y] = 32.5% off. 38mm Series 1 [$269 - $75 KC - $10 Y2Y] = 31.6% off.

Total Saving together if you have both: 38mm Series 2 [$369 - $70 KGC - $105 KC - $15 Y2Y] = savings [$190] = $179 total cost, so 51.5% off total. 38mm Series 1 [$269 - $50 KGC - $75 KC - $10 Y2Y] = savings [$135] = $134 total cost, so 50% off.



I hope that helps everyone decide. [ETA: I wrote this before the sale went live and we still thought there would be rose gold Series 1 and a Series 2 available. So far, there's not. Space gray Series 1 ONLY, 38mm and 42mm]. And remember, the refurbished deals and sales at BB, etc., are often $100-$150 off....with better style/color choices, so......there's that.

From what I remember hearing you still get a gift card but there's a set expiration date instead of a regular gift card with no expiration date.

I dont know if I can agree with that. The week that they designate as "Spend your Kohls Cash Now" tend to have less sales than other weeks. And for me then I often end up wandering around the store forever and finally settling for something I never intended to buy, or something that I know will be discounted by 30-40% (by coupon or sale) a week later.

I'm not saying this is a bad deal. But the Best Buy Early BF Apple Watch for $249 may be a more appealing deal for those looking to use their AMEX $25 credit, Spend/Earn RewardZone points or dump gift cards.

Indeed. I guess too many people were doing that.

For those who are TD this post, please find a better deal than what is posted.

BestBuy is having Apple Watch Series 1 42mm at $249 for BB Elite members. Only a few folks are elite, hence this is a good deal.

Use cashback sites like "e b a t e s" to get 8% cashback on this purchase to make it more sweet.
