I am a BIG fan of Kohl’s, but especially now that I just saved more than $40 on one item just by shopping around! I went to my first favorite store (to remain nameless…) and was just about to purchase a bookcase for my daughter’s bedroom for roughly $114 including shipping. Tried as I might, I could not find a way around the shipping charges for this particular item.
Before I clicked “continue and pay” in my shopping cart, I thought I should search a little more to see if the same bookcase was available elsewhere. I scored at Kohl’s! Not only was it available, but it was priced $11 less, and with free shipping.
But I wasn’t done yet. When you shop online with Kohl’s, you can enter up to 2 promotional codes for further savings! I went to RetailMeNot.com to see if they might have a coupon code for Kohl’s. I found one for 20% off, however once I applied that then my shipping went back to the normal rate. I figured it was an either-or option, so then I went back to Retail Me Not and found a second code for free shipping! After tax I ended up paying $72.75 for my daughter’s bookcase, whereas at the other store I would have paid $114, a savings of $41!
I felt SO good about my purchase, and super excited to have saved so much money on it.
Bottom line: When you are doing online shopping, look for a box to enter a promotional code, usually on one of your last checkout pages. If the box is there, dig around until you find a code to use! You can Google “(Store Name) promotional code”, and also try sites like RetailMeNot.com and Savings.com). Most stores will only allow 1 code, but at least at Kohl’s you can enter up to two.
