Thrifty Thursdays: Kohl's Haul on Tax-Free weekend! :)




This week's Mix & Match Monday post was about the CONVERSE sneakers and socks I got from two different trips to Kohl's and told you that I was going to tell you how they came out to be $1.64 per item. 

Well, this is how:


Last week, I received my $10 reward certificate. A few days after that, I received a $10 certificate offer to visit an specific location. Then, I had a 15% off coupon. Plus this past weekend was "tax-free weekend."

They key to this awesome deal was to buy items that are on clearance :) 
Clearance items are usually off-season items, but good thing we know winter is coming back :)

So I bought:

2 Sonoma Sweaters: regular price was $40.00 each on clearance for $4.00 each
1 Daisy Fuentes Sweater: regular price $54.00 on clearance for $5.40
1 Apt. 9 Sweater: regular price $40.00 on clearance for $8.00
1 pair on Converse Sneakers: regular Price $55.00 on clearance for $11.00
1 pair of Sandals: regular price $19.99 on clearance for $5.99
6 pair of Converse socks: regular price was $12.00/3 pair on clearance for $2.40 each set

Subtotal: regular price $272.99 on clearance for $43.19

A total of 12 items for $43.19

That is 84% off of regular price. Great deal!!! But wait! what about the coupons and certificates?

EXPLANATION

$43.19 - $10 certificate = $33.19
$33.19 - $10 certificate = $23.19
$23.19 - 15% off = $19.71
-------------------------------
$19.71 / 12 items = $1.64 per item
--------------------------------

YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!

Mix Match Monday: Converse sneakers and socks combo :)


Happy Monday Everyone! For today's Mix & Match Monday I am going to show you same brand items, from two different trips to my favorite store.

I had always wanted to buy a pair of converse sneakers. I don't know much about them, but I know they look cool and they look like they are easy to wear specially if you stay home :)

This weekend was "Tax-Free Weekend" in Texas, so we went shopping at Kohl's...I love Kohl's!!!

When we got to the store I just thought... "maybe I can get some converse today", but did not think much about it. So we look for clothes for my husband and kids, then we went to the shoe department. I went to the clearance section and what did I find?...A PAIR OF CONVERSE SNEAKERS in PINK. There was only one pair! so I tried it on and IT WAS THE RIGHT SIZE so I just had to get them. When I looked at the price I liked them even more. They were only $11.00!!! You can't beat that price.

When we got home, my husband changed his mind about a few items he got. So, the next day I went back to Kohl's and returned the items. I never mind going back to exchange items, because it gives me a change to browse the store again :) With that said, I found a few items for myself including a few pairs of CONVERSE SOCKS! for only $2.40 per 3 pairs, so I got 6 pairs for $4.80. You can't beat that either! 


In conclusion...this is what I got at Kohl's


-1 pair of CONVERSE sneakers: regular price $55.00 on clearance for $11.00
-6 pairs of CONVERSE socks: regular price $24.00 on clearance for $4.80

A combo of sneakers and socks
$79.00 for only $15.80

80% off regular price, pretty good deal, right?

Well it gets even better....but you will have to wait until this week's THRIFTY THURSDAYS post to see how these items were actually only $1.64 per item with the rest of the items I bought and the reward points, coupons and discounts I had. 

See you Thursday!!!

Did you get good deals this weekend?
