Now through Wednesday, Sep. 21, you can earn $10 for every $50 you spend at Kohl's. And if you have a Kohl's credit card, you should have received in the mail a coupon for either 15, 20, or 30 percent off your total purchase. If you don't have a Kohl's card, just ask at the checkout register for a scratch-off card for instant savings. I used to think that none of the scratch-off cards were for more than 15 percent off, but a few weeks ago, I actually got a card for 20 percent off, which was certainly better than the 15 percent coupon I had received in the mail. So try your luck; you might be pleasantly surprised, as I was.
Kohl's clearance racks are overflowing with bargains, and when you couple the already low prices with the discounts stated above (not to mention the fact that you can receive Kohl's cash), you can score some fabulous deals. I just purchased end-of-season kids' clothes for 86 percent off the original prices using my coupon for 30 percent off for clothes that were already discounted 80 percent. Total cost for most items: $1.82. Most of those clothes will be going to local missions.
