Re: Kohl's CLI?????

Hang onto your Kohl's card.  As a former associate (and card holder)....Kohl's sends out MAJOR incentives to shop with them.  If you receive a 30% scratch off.....go shop.  If your limit is $300, spend it and immediately pay it.  Continue to use the 30% scratch off.

 

I also love their friends/family sales. 

 

Here's a little known Kohl's Trick:  EXAMPLE.  If you spend $50, you will receive a $10 coupon to be used the following week.  So let's say you spend $200, you'll receive the $40 coupon.  Make your $40 purchase.  IF you need to return the $40 item, allow Kohl's to put the $40 on a merchandise return card...you get to keep the $40.  If you get it credited BACK to the original payment...you lose that $40.  So much I learned during my 3 years there.  YMMV

 

Plus, you don't need to hang onto receipts.  They can just do a simple look up and pull up recent purchases (used to be 6 months)...and you're credited THAT amount, NOT lowest sales price.
