So, I have to ask . . . how many of you were crazy enough (ahem, I meant BRAVE enough, LOL!) to be a part of the Black Thursday/Friday rush for deals? Â Who waited hours for a store to open for that one special item at a steep discount? Â Who just wanted to be a part of the frenzy?
Me? Â I’ve NEVER done the Black Friday thing – – at least not physically going to a store during that crush/rush of people! Â I just can’t handle the crowds and get WAY to irritated by stupid people doing stupid things to get the things that they want. Â So, I stay home. Â But this year, I did join the Black Thursday/Friday shopping sprees – – online! Â And wow, did I score some incredible deals! Â Instead of heading to Kohl’s and running around like a crazy person trying to buy the things I wanted . . . I went to their website and snagged some phenomenal gifts at prices that really made me feel like I was STEALING. Â LOL!
Online, Kohl’s were offering some “blow-out” deals for the first hour, and that’s where I scored. Â Retail priced everything I bought would have cost me $432.00. Â By the time I checked out with these give-away prices, AND used an online coupon code for an additional 20% off all my purchases, I only paid . . . $107.00. Â Â Oh, and that’s not all. Â Kohl’s was also offering a $15.00 coupon for every $50 you spent, so I was sent a $30.00 gift certificate ON TOP OF ALL THAT, to spend this coming week at the store. Â So, really, everything only cost me $77.00!!! Â Really!?! Â Kohl’s slogan is that you “get paid to shop”, and I definitely felt like they paid ME to buy some of the things I did.
Here’s some of the amazing things I scored. Â I bought two finer jewelry bracelets, normally priced at $80/ea, and I got them for $12/ea. Â I bought two fleece blankets I needed, normally priced at $40/ea, for $8/ea! Â I needed a new pair of Deerfoam slippers, normally $30, and only paid $7. Â I bought 5 adorable outfits for my new niece, normally $24/ea, and I only paid $7/ea! Â I bought some toys to giveaway to Toys for Tots, too. Â I still can’t believe how much I saved!!!
But wait, that’s not all! Â I used “Ebates.com” and they were offering an additional 10% cash back on any Kohl’s purchases, so that gave me an additional $10 cash back! Â Just as an FYI, if you do a lot of online shopping, you should consider signing up at eBates — you honest to goodness get rebates back on your purchases . . . you can sign up here: Â EBATES
So, who did the Black Thursday/Friday shopping thing? Â What kind of deals did you snag? Â And what about today, Cyber Monday — any good deals to be had, today?
