There’s a “Kohl’s” department store near us. We shop there only occasionally, because I find that their regular prices are a bit on the high side. They DO have good sales though; especially on the things I wanted to buy. So Kohl’s it was . . .
I was pretty pleased with the good deals that I found and also with the grand total that appeared on the screen at the checkout register. But it’s what happened next that really delighted me!
As the clerk handed me my receipt, she announced that I had just earned $20.00 in “Kohl’s Cash”. Ever the skeptic, I raised an eyebrow at first. Surely I’d have to spend more money before I could use this “cash”? Or maybe sign up for their credit card? Or turn over my first-born??
The very cordial lady assured me that all I had to do was use it in the next 10 days for whatever I wanted, except a gift card. Wow!!! It was the “no purchase required” that really impressed me. Besides the great sale prices I had just received on my purchases, I actually had a gift of TWENTY dollars to spend any way I liked. Well, you just know that we went back to spend it, right?
Wanna see what we bought?
I thought it would be fun to see how close to twenty we could get. Our grand total was $18.87 – close enough. And there was extra value here because the “free items” were also on sale so that “$20 cash coupon” actually bought $38.00 worth of items.
The treasure-hunt element is what made it especially fun – best time we’ve had shopping in years!
C’mon now, please tell us about your good deal. 😀
