8 Retailers That Have Your Back When You Forget Your Coupon

Retailer coupons can be your ticket to great deals, but what happens when you forget to clip or bring along your coupon? If you know when to ask, sometimes the store will have your back. If not, these stores often have coupon-stuffed flyers at the entrances, or smartphone apps you can use to dial up your own. [More]

Cops Shoot Alleged Thanksgiving Night Shoplifter Dragging Officer With Car

Cops Shoot Alleged Thanksgiving Night Shoplifter Dragging Officer With Car

Some Black Friday shoppers brawl over discounted junk, and some people aren’t interested in paying those discounted prices at all. Not because they’re staying home: don’t be ridiculous. Brown Thursday turned dangerous in Illinois when a police officer shot an accused shoplifter. For shoplifting? No, for dragging a fellow officer whose arm was stuck in his car door. [More]

Authorities have found and arrested the person who left a dead newborn in the ladies’ room trash in a Kentucky Kohl’s store two weeks ago.

Dead Baby Found In Bathroom, Kohl’s Keeps Store Open

What should it take to close a store during a normal shopping day? Would you expect a department store to close if a dead person were discovered in the public restroom? What if the death were mysterious and homicide detectives were on the scene? What if the dead person were a newborn infant? [More]

Kohl’s Celebrates Royal Baby With Coupon Code For Peasants For Some Reason

Kohl’s Celebrates Royal Baby With Coupon Code For Peasants For Some Reason

Retailers don’t need much of a pretext to send out online coupons: current events, real or made-up holidays, the weather: it’s all a good enough reason to send out an e-mail and then sit back and wait for the sales to roll in. That’s the apparent logic behind a Kohl’s sale dedicated to the newest, tiniest heir to the throne of the United Kingdom. [More]

Reader Fairly Certain That Men Are In Charge Of Shipping Bras At Kohl’s

Reader Fairly Certain That Men Are In Charge Of Shipping Bras At Kohl’s

Amy was disappointed with the condition that her bras arrived in from Kohl’s. Men, she insists, are in charge of packing the store’s lingerie. Or–let’s be inclusive here–people who have never needed to wear an article of clothing that has underwires. Or a molded cup. Not even all women understand the care with which delicately-constructed undergarments need to be handled. [More]

Kohl’s Cash Isn’t Much Of A Deal When Nothing Is On Sale

Kohl’s is the land of never-ending sales: nearly everything in the store is on perpetual markdown, and no list price is what it seems to be. But reader Mike was annoyed recently when he earned some Kohl’s Cash from a purchase and brought it back the following week. He couldn’t find anything on sale that he actually wanted to buy, and was especially annoyed to see an item for which the price had increased by exactly the amount of his Kohl’s Cash voucher. [More]

Kohl’s Employee Explains Math-Impaired Signage

Vindication for reader Garrett: a real, live Kohl’s employee agrees that the “60% off plus 25% off equals 85% off” sign that he spotted in his local store makes no sense. That’s because this person studies engineering, which means that he or she has some familiarity with how math works. They explained to us what Garrett should have done, as well as the likely origins of this wacky sign. [More]

85% = 70%

At Kohl’s, 60% Off Then 25% Off Means 85% Off

Garrett understands math. And he knows that 60% off, then 25% off does not equal 85% off. That’s what the signs at Kohl’s said, and he assumed that was the discount he would get. No, the items he bought rang up at the lower price. He wrote to Kohl’s, thinking maybe that they would say, “Oh, yes, customer, you’re right; we just had the wrong signs up.” Not so fast! They insisted that the wrong math was really right. [More]

What Kohl’s Does When It Ships An Extra Item: Charges Me For It, Denies A Refund

Consumerist reader Rebecca sounds like a reasonable person. Sure, she’s jealous of the people (this reader and then this reader, too)who get extra iPads sent to them by Best Buy, but she’s not expecting any kind of freebies from Kohl’s in the same situation with a different product. But instead of even a simple “Thanks for noticing we messed up!” she got punished for trying to do the right thing and return the extra item. [More]
