My Upcoming Trip to Kohl’s

So, I am preparing another year of school clothes shopping.  In Texas, there will be a weekend that will be tax FREE but I usually shop before then.  I don’t always see  a lot of good sales and by then some of the shorts and t-shirts are already out of stock.

This year I think I am going to do all of my shopping at Kohl’s to save the most money.  I have never spent a lot of money at Kohl’s but have friends that sing their praises all the time:)

Not only am I shopping at Kohl’s, but I think I am going to buy everything online.  Sometimes it’s more work to drag your children into the store.  I think this year I would much rather just shop online.  Should be exciting!!!

Here’s what I’m considering doing:


Before I even start shopping, I am going to start off @ Ebates.  If you have never used Ebates, it is SUPER SIMPLE!

Once I login, then I am going to click on the Kohl’s link and it will take me straight to their online store.  I am choosing to shop through Ebates because as of right now they are offering a 6% cash back at Kohl’s.

If I spend my allotted amount of $150 then I should get back somewhere around $9.

FREE Shipping

I have budgeted for $150 to spend on school clothes with our upcoming paycheck.  If I spend $75 then I get FREE shipping.  This is always HUGE to me when shopping online.  I really don’t want to pay for shipping when I could just drive down the street and shop in town and pay only taxes.  If they don’t offer free shipping after a certain amount, then I’m probably not shopping their online store!


I am going to start off in their Clearance section.  I already spotted a few pair of shorts, dress pants, and shirts that will fit my oldest child (I am primarily shopping for him on this first online trip).  I will then move into his age category and hope to get shoes, shirts, shorts, pants, etc.  We’ll see how far I can get with $150.

If you’re a Kohl’s card member, then you can get FREE shipping using the code:  JULYFREE4U at checkout.


Once I finish up with my online shopping trip, then I will obviously checkout.  At checkout, I will enter the coupon code: SAVEWA3 to get 15% off everything (I found this code here).  This code will expire on 9/30/2013.  You also have to spend $100 to use the code.

Found this coupon in my inbox this morning – so now I’m might be shopping in store because they had more clothes around the sizes that I need!

Kohl’s Cash

Once I have finally checked out, I should be receiving $30 back in Kohl’s cash.  They give you $10 back for every $50 you spend.  This deal will end on July 28, 2013 so I am going to have to shop before the weekend ends.  I can spend my cash the following week and either get $30 off my order or $30 worth of FREE stuff:)

Kohl’s Rewards

I am not 100% sure about this since I have never used it before, but I just got a Kohl’s card a few weeks ago.  I received an email that said I am only 43 points away from receiving my $5 reward.  I am thinking that they will send me a $5 off coupon in my inbox – not sure.  I will have to let you know after I finish the online trip.  I’m thinking that I will be able to use it like Kohl’s cash.  If so, then I will have $35 to spend on my next shopping trip.

So, do you shop @ Kohl’s?  Maybe you can give me some insight.  Feel free to leave a comment below.

CVS – July 14, 2013

It was a great week @ CVS for deals, but not so great since I didn’t have a lot of Extra Care Bucks in stock.  Oh, well.  I still got a lot of things that we needed and I was grateful that everything was in stock!

Here’s what I did….

Transaction #1

(2) Colgate Mouthwash = 11.98

(1) Edge Shave Gel = 3.19

– .55 off Edge shave gel

– 2.00 off Colgate Mouthwash

– 2.00 off Colgate Mouthwash

-1.00 Extra Care Buck

Total OOP = 10.41 got back $8 ECB

Transaction #2

(1) Playtex tampons = 7.99

(2) Right Guard body wash = 4.99 (Buy 1, Get 1 FREE)

– 3.00 Playtex coupon

– 1.50 off Right Guard body wash (RP 7/14)

– 1.50 off Right Guard body wash (RP 7/14)

– 6.00 Extra Care Bucks (I kept the other $2 for next week)

TOTAL OOP = 1.06 and got back$3 ECB and the $2 that I kept

Not a bad deal!  I was able to score a lot of product for less than $12 which is way over my limit.  I usually try to spend $5 at CVS and always come home with Extra Care Bucks.  Better luck next week!

How was your shopping trip @ CVS this week?  Do you have any questions?

All FREE @ Kroger

I was finally able to retrieve the freebies this week that were downloaded onto my Kroger card.  If you have not done so, head to Kroger, get a card and sign up online.  They are really starting to have some GREAT e-coupons for FREE items.  Click here to sign up today.

Thanks to all these freebies, my grand total went from $65 down to $38 OOP.  This is where coupons are well worth it – when you can save 50% or more:)

Obviously, today, though I am not showing you my entire shopping trip.  These were just the items that I got for free.

Green Giant chips – .50 off coupon doubled to $1 off (FREE)

8 oz. POM juice – .50 off coupon doubled to $1 off (FREE)

Quaker breakfast bars – E-coupon on Kroger.com (expired – you have to watch for these because they have to be downloaded on certain days)

Orville Redenbacher’s Pop Crucnch – E-coupon on Kroger.com (FREE) – expired

In our area, coupons are still doubled/tripled every day at Kroger.  Your area may only give you the amount listed on your coupon.  If you are not sure, then ask the management at the Kroger where you shop.

Be on the look-out for great e-coupons from Kroger.com.  I am signed up to received emails from them and they have really had some high value products for FREE.  The box of Quaker breakfast bars were almost $5 and I paid nothing for them.

The way this works is that you once you create a login/password for Kroger you will find a tab that says COUPONS.  Click this link and on the left-hand side it should say something like “Download coupons”.  Just click on the coupons that you want saved to your Kroger card.

When you go to the store and shop, they will ask for your card before they begin the transaction.  When your item is scanned, the e-coupon should come off your card immediately.  You shouldn’t have to do anything.  It’s already been done!  If you are unsure whether your e-coupons came off or not, then look at your receipt.  An e-coupon should show up directly below the item that was scanned (not at the bottom of the receipt).

One thing about e-coupons is that they will not double or triple.  You have to take them at face value.  They also cannot be combined with paper coupons.  If I had a paper coupon from the newspaper for those Quaker breakfast bars, then I could not use it because the coupon on my card would have already come off.  This is considered coupon fraud.  Their site will remind you of this policy every time you download a coupon.

I had a friend tell me this week that she saved $18 in one trip thanks to e-coupons.  That’s not too shabby considering that she did nothing more than just click coupons and save them to her card.  The only thing she might have done was print off the coupon list showing what coupons she downloaded and reminding her what to buy at the store.  Either way it’s a win-win situation.

How often do you shop at Kroger?  Do you download coupons or just use the paper’s manufactured coupons?  Please share….

EBATES – Double Cash Back

If you have never tried Ebates then you are really missing out!  My husband and I are not real big online shoppers, but we just booked our vacation and made sure to go through Ebates.

Here’s how Ebates works:

Go to www.ebates.com.  Once you get on their site, you will need to create a login/password.

Once this is done you are ready to rock and roll!

Browse and shop at whatever store you like (Kohl’s has 6% back right now and they have a lot of things on clearance).  Click on the store.  You will be able to shop at that online store just like you would if you went straight through their site, but you will be shopping through Ebates to get there.

You purchase what you like and you can earn cash back.  Make sure and look at the percentages.  Especially look at the ones that are offering double cash back.

Booking a vacation?  Will you go through Ebates to book it or do you have another way that you shop to earn cash back?  I would love to hear from you.

TOMS up to 35% off

Just saw this in my inbox and knew that TOMS were a popular brand.  This is a deal from Zulily.  You may have to register and create a login before you can enter the site.

Once you are there, look for their deals like 75% off sales.  I think I have purchased from Zulily before, but the only thing I warn people about is the shipping.

Make sure that the shipping/handling plus the price add up to a good deal.  Otherwise, you might just stick with buying the shoes in your town instead of online.

Let me know how this worked out for you:)
