Kohl's $5.00 Coupons = Savings!

I am a HUGE proponent of coupons - whether it be for a grocery store, sporting goods store, clothing store, etc., you name it, I will have a coupon for it!

Kohl's provides a $5.00 coupon when you sign up for their updates via a valid email address. This is a huge savings! $5.00 of free money just for providing your email address. Now, remember in previous posts I mentioned that I have a separate email address for accounts such as these. You can also set up a FREE account with numerous providers such as Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, just to name a few.

The following picture are products that I purchased at Kohl’s with my $5.00 off coupons. I used a $5.00 coupon for each item (separate purchases) to minimize the income coming out of my pocket. FYI - some cashiers will do this, others will not. (The items purchased were a shower curtain, floral rug, 1 floral bath towel, 2 striped bath towels, 2 striped hand towels.)

The total cost paid for everything pictured was $18.94, total savings (ready for this - drumroll please) $137.39 (that is a savings of $118.45). Now, I just need to go to the paint store and pick up a quart of one of the colors in the decor and paint a wall or half wall or something in my bathroom to coordinate everything. How exciting! Or, if I choose not to use the decor, this would be a great, and inexpensive, gift to give someone for a housewarming gift (just have to hope that it is their style).

Did you also know you can purchase Kohl’s $5.00 coupons off of ebay? Since I have exhausted all of my email addresses, this is how I obtain savings for future purchases. They usually go on sale for .99¢ for 20 coupons (yes, 20 $5.00 off coupons all with different valid email addresses). Remember to log in to your e-bay account and don’t bid until seconds before the deadline, that’s when you bid, then you have to confirm your bid and hopefully your the highest bidder! Good luck!
