Are they competing with Wal-Mart and Target?

I wouldn't think so, they don't really seem anything like either to me.

Maybe it's a marketing ploy to get you to buy more stuff?


Heh, you bet! Kohl's tries to get you to buy stuff all the time :smileyvery-happy:. But it's nice to see that you are happy with your new card. Congrats!


Oh yeah, they are pretty good at it, too.  I'm to smart for their tricks, I beat them at a their own game. I also know their prices change every single day and since the store is so close to me I pop in a few times a week to catch the item I want at the higher sale price and then slap my stackable coupon on top of it!

Re: Bit the bullet....apped for Kohl's.

I just noticed this thread.  So funny.  We just "discovered" Kohl's about a month ago, even though we've lived within walking distance of a store for the last 3 years.  We just never knew what it was (despite the multi-page weekly ads in the newspaper) and just assumed that is something like a TJMaxx or Ross, neither of which we like very much.  Now we've been back a half dozen times.  Yes, the Kohl's cash thing is great.  And like UpUpUp said, the prices change so frequently that it pays to check a few times to snag the lower price.

Re: Bit the bullet....apped for Kohl's.

They're like a small-scale, slightly wacko Macy's.

You almost have to haunt the store daily to make sure that you're getting the best deal. But when you catch a sale at the right time, you can get some great stuff.

I'm pretty lackadaisical in the shopping department, but I could see how someone who loves hunting bargains could go nuts there.
