Redeem Your Kohl’s Cash: $15, $30, $45 & $60 Ideas

kohl's cash

Redeem Your Kohl’s Cash: Nov. 30 – Dec. 6

If you earned Kohl’s Cash last week, it’s now time to redeem those dollars! The last thing you want to do is negate the good deals you scored by letting your Kohl’s Cash expire!

Today (12/1) would be a great time to do that because through 12/1 only, you’ll get FREE shipping on orders of $25 or more, no coupon code required. This is going to help keep your out-of-pocket expenses down when redeeming that Kohl’s Cash!

Here’s what you should know:

  • You have until December 6 (that’s next Sunday!) to redeem your Kohl’s Cash.
  • You can use the coupon code NOV20 to save 20% in conjunction with redeeming your Kohl’s Cash, through December 1. If other general coupon codes come up after that, we’ll post them here.
  • The Kohl’s Cash will be deducted first, and then the 20% off will be applied to the remaining balance. This is important to note!
  • Kohl’s Cash can be used on anything you find at with the exception of gift cards.
  • Please note that the free shipping minimum is calculated after Kohl’s Cash is applied, so your shipping charge will be $5.95 if you don’t meet the $25 threshold. You may also be able to choose free in-store pickup.

I thought it might be helpful for me to give a few ideas for how you might leverage your Kohl’s Cash for the best possible deals. My goal was to find solid deals that would minimize your out-of-pocket cost.

If you have $15 Kohl’s Cash…

Groupon: 3-pack Women’s Draped Cardigans (S, M) $34.99 (value: $120)!


Check out this awesome deal I spotted at Groupon Goods: it’s a 3-pack of Women’s Draped Cardigans for just $34.99 (value: $120). Yes – that’s $34.99 for three of them, which works out to just $11.66 per cardigan.

I was a bit skeptical about this deal, until I read the reviews. These are very highly rated! Reviewers commented that the quality was good, they were comfortable, and fit well.

Because this deal is so popular, the only remaining color combination is red, black & tan and its only available in sizes small and medium at the moment. Head to Groupon to snag this deal before it completely sells out!


Amazon Daily Deal: *HOT* Black + Decker Cordless Hand Vac $38.97 (reg. $126) – 12/1 only

Black + Decker Cordless Vac

So I’m seriously considering today’s Daily Deal on Amazon – it’s the Black + Decker Cordless Hand Vac for just $38.97! It retails for $126 and this is the lowest price it’s ever been on Amazon! This is the best selling handheld vacuum on Amazon and currently has an average 4.5-star average rating after over 4,000 customer reviews.

Here are some product features, from Amazon:

  • Strong suction & fade-free power
  • Includes brush & crevice tools and they clip on the unit, so you won’t lose them
  • 50% more reach than previous Black + Decker model
  • Rotating, slim nozzle reaches dirt in tight places

I’m already thinking how I would use this thing – stairs come immediately to mind! I hate lugging my big vacuum, plus I bet I could get my kids to use this one! I am also thinking it would be great for quick clean-up of my car interior or around the dog’s food dish and small kitchen spills.

If you want to snag this deal – remember, you’ll have to do so today (December 1st!). There is always a possibility the deal will sell out before the end of the day too, so head to Amazon to snag it now!


Angela’s 10 Favorite Things for 2015

Angela's Top 10 Favorite Things for 2015

Last year, I had such fun playing Oprah and coming up with my list of 10 Favorite Things for 2014, I decided to do it again!

Why should you care about what I bought? Well first – when it comes to buying things for myself, you should know I can be pretty cheap. Meaning, I actually don’t buy a lot of things for myself. The things I end up purchasing usually only come after extensive hemming and hawing.

After much consideration, here are the 10 best things I purchased in 2015 and can heartily recommend to you!

Believe Running Journal

Item #1: Believe Journal (~$15, Amazon)

I purchased this journal back in the spring as a way to log my running. Previously, I’d just printed out a monthly calendar page and jotted my schedule on it. This is so much better! In addition to ample space to journal your daily running, there are pages to plan your goals, the logistics and reviews of your races, and an annual calendar. Peppered throughout the journal are helpful articles on everything from body image to nutrition and more, by pro women runners. I absolutely love this journal and recommend it to all my girlfriends that run. It would make an amazing gift!


Item #2: Nuun (~ $11-13 for a 4-pack, Amazon)

I discovered Nuun this year and am crazy about this stuff! It’s basically a little disc that you throw in a bottle of 16 oz water that flavors it and provides electrolytes. The flavors are amazing, and I love that it’s very low in sugar and calories. It’s a great alternative to other sports drinks that can be high in both! One tube of 12 discs will run you about $7-8 in a grocery store, but you can score a 4-pack on Amazon for about $11-13 right now. In talking to representatives from Nuun at races I’ve participated in, they agree Amazon is generally the best place to score a deal. It’s great during or after a long run or hard workout, or even if you’re just trying to get more water in and prefer a bit of flavor.

Canon Rebel

Item #3: Canon Rebel T5 DSLR (~$500, Amazon)

I’d thought about getting a nice camera for awhile, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to stomach the price! While this camera was among the bigger purchases I made this year, my only regret was not buying it sooner! It’s amazing for any number of subjects – kids, sports, food, gardening, nature, landscapes, cityscapes, and more. I also love that I was able to figure it out relatively quickly too. Read More…


Fred Meyer Friends & Family Pass: Unadvertised Deals!

Fred Meyer Friends & Family Pass

One of my absolute favorite times of the year to shop at Fred Meyer is when they release their Friends & Family Pass. Typically, this Pass only is issued 2 or maybe 3 times a year and it’s only good for a window of about 4 days. You can print your Friends & Family pass or text FAMILY to 32824 to receive a mobile version of the coupon. But – it’s only good through Thursday, December 3rd!

As a reminder, the Pass will save you…

  • Extra 20% off Apparel, Shoes, Cosmetics and Accessories
  • Extra 15% off Home Department, including Toys, School Supplies, Sporting Goods, Auto and Garden
  • Extra 10% off Home Electronics (excludes gift cards, event tickets, phone activation, mobile phones, Google Nexus, iPad, Kindle, Nook, and Wii U hardware)

  • Extra 20% off Fine Jewelry (excludes unmounted Diamonds, Watches, Exceptional Values, Scott Kay, Lotus, Primo Men’s Jewelry, Bon Bracelets, BeCharmed and Zable)
  • These discounts may be applied to regular, sale and clearance prices.

Even better, there is a 10% off Home coupon and a 15% off Apparel coupon in this week’s ad that can be used on top of the Pass. And, if you’re 55 or older, you can shop today (Tuesday, December 1st) for an additional 10% off Senior Discount! (Is your head spinning yet?)

While I shared a number of stellar ideas as part of my regular Fred Meyer Coupon Deals post this week, I wanted to share some additional ideas I found while shopping. Note that there are really SO MANY deals, so this is meant to give you an idea only!SImple Truth Non-dairy Milk
