Planning ahead and being aware is the first step in finding great bargains. Last December I made my list, checked it twice, grabbed my Very Important Customer discount card, and headed out to Kohl's to shop. I knew what I was looking for, so I didn't overspend. It was a big sale day with early bird specials, so I shopped in the morning. After these specials, I used my Kohl's charge and the additional 15% discount coupon. End result: they practically paid me to shop. I watched the numbers on the register go down, down, down, until I couldn't believe how little I paid for the cart full of presents!
Bargain shopping? I'm there, whether it's online or brick and mortar.
