Last week I stopped into Kohl's to pick up 1 pair of swim shorts and 1 pair of khaki shorts for VC. Armed with my $10 off anything over $10 coupon and a 15% coupon, I was expecting to leave with a deal.
So I was shocked when the total - after discount and $10 off came to $36 (for 2 items)...especially since the swim shorts were Kohl's own Sonoma brand.
Very disappointing - and I'm glad I did not pay the extra $17 in order to reach the $50 limit to get a $10 off coupon for the next week. I have always wondered if prices are jacked up before those "special" weeks. However, I should be rest assured because my receipt showed a "total saved of $56.02" circled by the cashier ;-) . Do you mean to tell me the actual cost of a swimsuit and pair of shorts is $92!!!!
Looks like Kohl's has been investigated for price jacking in advance of sales in the past although this practice is denied. **CBS conducted an investigation in 2012. Click here to see the surprising results.
I have been a Kohl's shopper for years...but me thinks I may be done.
Oh well...I was happy to avoid Kohl's and stopped in at Ross today to find a tie for VC's graduation ceremony - so he will look spiffy under his cap and gown. Picked one up for $7.99 - a Pierre Cardin ...now that's more like it!
