Beauty Deals at Kohl's

One of our Glambo contributors absolutely loves Kohl's. Another shops there when she has a 30% off coupon, and I'm neutral. I probably do a big Kohl's shopping trip once per year. I earn Kohl's cash, forget to spend it (or am too busy to get there in time,) get frustrated, and swear off Kohl's for a while. (My issue, not Kohl's.) I recently discovered some beauty finds that can be purchased online with Kohl's cash. That's a game changer for me!

Kohl's has Lorac. Look at this gift set (available holiday 2015.)

LORAC, Love Lust and Makeup Holiday Gift Set, $42.00

Bliss is another brand that I didn't realize Kohl's carries. Here is a gift set any beauty would love.

Contains bliss hand cream, soapy suds and body butter.

We knew Kohl's had several perfume brands. We didn't realize they carried The Balm makeup too.

If you are spending Kohl's cash, and have a coupon, there's something you need to know. (Math geek input here. Haha.) The coupon is applied AFTER your Kohl's cash and Yes2You Rewards have been deducted. I didn't realize that at first. Although, it is clearly disclosed on the Kohl's cash. Why does this make a difference?

Kohl's Cash
Let's say you have $30 Kohl's Cash to spend, and a 25% discount coupon. You find a purchase for $40. You might think this: $40 purchase, $10 off with 25% coupon, use $30 Kohl's cash, and just pay the tax. Your purchase would seem free. WRONG! The way it works is: $40 purchase minus $30 Kohl's cash. Then, deduct 25% from the remaining $10 balance. That's $2.50 off. You'd pay $7.50 plus tax. This is something that's good to keep in mind while you are shopping online. It will keep you from staring at your receipt after you make your purchase in store - especially if you do a mega shopping trip like me.

Another math geek / marketing issue I see some people do at Kohl's is count the Kohl's cash twice. This sounds weird, and not everybody does it. Here's the justification. Let's say you spend $50 at Kohl's. You get lots of stuff on sale, and earn $10 Kohl's cash. It seems like you got a great deal and only really paid $40 dollars, right? No! Then, when you go to spend your $10 Kohl's cash, you count it again. The item was $15 dollars, but you have $10 Kohl's cash, so you really only paid $5. See how people count it twice? It feels great to justify purchases, but that $10 Kohl's cash just got counted as $20 in your budget. Again, not everyone does this, but it's something to be aware of.

Other than that, have fun shopping at Kohl's and Kohl's.com! Don't forget to log on with EBates to earn cash back on your purchases. (Our link is on the top right of the page if you need more EBates info, or want to sign up in 20 seconds flat.) We hope you find some beautiful deals.
