Great Fall Finds At Kohl’s + One Winner Gets $100 Kohl’s Gift Card

kohls-logoThe folks at Kohl’s sent me a $200 gift card and challenged me to see how far I could stretch it in their Grand Opening Sale. If you have ever shopped at Kohl’s you know that you can find some incredible deals in every department. I was definitely up for the challenge!

I’ll be honest guys, I typically buy for my guys and think of myself last. Well…this time I decided to shop for me! You guys know we just recently moved to Tennessee. While I was packing, I took the opportunity to clean out my closet and got rid of a bunch of clothes that had seen their better days. So that Kohl’s gift card was the perfect way to restock my closet with some fabulous clothes (and shoes!)

1513603_Gray_NaturalSo what did I get? A ton of great stuff – here’s the breakdown:

2 sweaters
1 lightweight zip jacket
2 long sleeve shirts
1 short sleeve shirt
2 pairs of jeans
2 pairs of shoes

Yes you read that correctly – I got TWO complete outfits PLUS extra tops to mix and match – making that 4 outfits plus a super cute jacket. My total was $255 – wowsa. Now I did go over my $200 gift card a bit – BUT, I also earned Kohl’s cash that I will use to to grab that other sweater that I had my eye on! I saved over $220 just by shopping at Kohl’s

While I was there I did happen to peruse the boys department and will be going back next week to grab them some fabulous fall clothing. They had some great sale prices on super cute stuff that will look great on my guys.

I have some great news! The folks at Kohl’s are giving an I Heart Saving Money reader a $100 Kohl’s gift card and reusable tote bag. 

Entry is simple! You just need to complete the task below. As a reminder, comments left on Facebook, Twitter or other posts will not be included.  I will choose the winner on Tuesday 10/15 at 11 pm.

  1. Meredith says

    I love shopping in Kohl’s housewares department so I would start there. I also have some pretty worn out shoes so shoe would definitely be needed if I won that fabulous prize. Thanks for all you do!

  2. says

    I’m like you – I tend to buy stuff for my kid and not for me. I’m a bargain-shopper so I’d love to see how far I could stretch that $100 gift card too! Shoes for sure. Some dresses, maybe? It would be way too much fun. Thanks for hosting the contest!

  3. Kristi G says

    I love shopping at Kohl’s! I’d probably use the gift card to get some new fall clothes and some new items for my new house.

  4. Alisha says

    I’d love to say I’d buy something for myself, but knowing me I’d buy something practical like Christmas gifts. Although, it’s fun to think about what I’d buy myself :)

  5. Barb says

    My best friend and I have collectively lost nearly 70 pounds. I’d love to get the card and split it with her. We could each buy an outfit and possibly some accessories to show off our new sizes!

  6. Rose says

    LOVE LOVE KOhls, I love great deals :) I would buy some new clothes for upcoming family wedding

  7. Tonya says

    I would love to be able to shop for some pictures and decorative touches for my son’s room at his dad’s apartment. It’s his second home and I want him to love his room there too!

  8. Linda says

    Kohls is terrific. They have great sales and coupons. With 7 birthdays and christmas coming I could put a gift card to good use.

  9. Grace says

    We have a new grandchild so I would use part of it for her. I would probably shop for myself after that.

  10. Jenny says

    I have 4 kids and a budget that is stretched to the max. Kohl’s is my favorite place to shop clearance because I can pair a coupon with my clearance purchases and earn kohl’s cash all at the same time. Most stores won’t let you do that. I desperately need clothes for my 6 year old son who is as tall as an 8 year old. I took all his winter clothes out and of course – nothing fit! He is down to one pair of jeans and that gift card would help out tremendously!

  11. Kelster says

    I’m desperately in need of new clothes so I’d shopfor myself and get a dress for my mother.

  12. tracyhfs says

    I would probably look for clothes for me too! Since we live in FL, I rarely buy any Fall clothes and mine are well overdue for an update. I really like that shirt you have picture above actually :)

  13. Melody Chaney says

    I would shop for MEEE! And start some Christmas Shopping for sure! Last year we made some great buys for the kids & in laws, plus got back the Kohl’s cash. I think 90% of my closet is from Kohl’s- love that place!

  14. Christy says

    I would use it to buy myself some new winter work clothes. I had a baby last winter and all of my previous wardrobe no longer fits for work. If there’s money left over I’ll be using it one of two things, clothes for one of my kids or Christmas gifts!

  15. Beth says

    I would actually use it on me! I have already lost over 60 lbs and NONE of my clothes fit! Yeah for weight loss… boo for looking goofy in my clothes!

  16. brandy says

    Love Kohls! I would most like buy a few things for myself (replacing clothes ruined by not emptying pockets – crayon-of my son’s clothes), for my husband, and a special something for my son.

  17. Amanda D says

    I would shop for myself since I never do but this is guilt free spending! I would buy exercise clothes since the months of pure piggery are almost among us!! =)

  18. April M. says

    I am just starting to learn how to really eat healthy and cook so I would use it to replace a lot of my old kitchenware.

  19. Kristin says

    I could definitely use this. I love to shop clearance/sales at Kohl’s. I could really stretch that gift card to grab stuff for the whole family. I would love to win!

  20. Stef Skrzypek says

    I love KOHLS.. I would definitely do some XMAS shopping for my family. Pick up a few fun pieces of jewelry for my sisters and mom. Find something for my husband and his parents. AND Maybe something for myself for all my hard work :)

  21. says

    Personally,I’ve never been able to shop at Kohl’s, but my sister always gets really great deals.I would like to get something nice for my 3 sons for Christmas since the last two, I was unable to. They’re not little boys anymore, but they’re still my “little boys”. Just would be nice :)

  22. Jeanne T. says

    We are having the inside of our house painted in January. Along with the new paint, I would like to get some new bedding for my guest room which I haven’t updated in 12 years and it’s showing. So I guess I would say I am shopping for my home :)

  23. Debra says

    I would use it to buy work clothes for my husband.:) He needs clothes more than anyone else in my family.

  24. Adriana Telaro says

    I would give my daughter the $100. She has graduated with a Masters in Education
    Degree and is a substitute teacher and needs some
    clothes to have that professional look. Hard to buy clothes with minimum pay and school debt. She is a great elementary school teacher

  25. Jessica Lopez says

    I Love Kohl’s..I always get great deals..I would buy a Keruig for our house..I have been wanting on for the longest time!

  26. Angel Lee says

    i would use it to buy winter clothes for my daughter due in november and also for my 3 year old. I would love to buy stuff for myself, but you know how it goes with kids! :)

  27. Ash says

    I would do a little bit of shopping for me but also pick up some cute clothes and toys for my niece and nephew. :)

  28. Lisa kay! says

    LOVE Kohls! I would put this giftcard towards stocking up on goodies for new niece or nephew ( its a surprise! ) due Oct 23!!!!!!!
    Hooray for babies…hooray for saving money

  29. Donna says

    I have been waiting for almost 2 years to catch a fabulous deal on a Keurig. I’ve missed a couple during this time. I would use the gift card toward purchasing one for me and one for my new son-in-law, who said to let him know when I find a steal on them (lol). Hoping a great deal comes along before Christmas. Thank you for all that you do for us.

  30. Whitney says

    There are so many things that I could use $100 at Kohl’s for! I am short & they have pants there that fit me better than anywhere, that is my go- to place for K-cups and I can ALWAYS find some killer deals on their clearance racks!

  31. Rhonda G says

    I love Kohls! I would most likely shop for my 4 grandchildren, I always do :) Seems I always see things that would be perfect for one of them.

  32. Laura Hopkins says

    I would buy clothing for my nephews. My sisterhas always been a strong woman but has fallen on rough times financially. I have six year old twin girls so “extra” money to help her just isnt there rightnow to help. The boys would be soo happy to get new clothes but are generally just happy with anthing they get.

  33. Krystal Killough says

    I would definitely buy my 7 year old some jeans since he has all of a sudden hit a growth spurt! And then I would buy something for myself (that doesn’t even sound right! I can’t tell you the last time I bought myself some clothes!!

  34. Melodie says

    Clothes and shoes for my daughter who is growing like a weed. Work shirts for my hubby and something shiny for me.

  35. Bridgette Murphy says

    I’d use the Kohl’s gift card to start my Christmas shopping. I can’t believe it is already October. Gotta start thinking about the holiday shopping!!!

  36. Emily says

    I’d buy some clothes for my kiddos, but I’d also invest in a new pair of jeans to treat myself for losing all the baby weight!

  37. Danielle says

    If i had a $100 kohls gift card, i would spend it all on clothes for my amazing sister and her beautiful daughter. They are struggling financially and when she does buy clothes for herself, they aren’t as nice as she deserves or as nice as the clothing that kohls offers. She deserves the best in life. $100 that i could stretch pretty far wouldn’t put her in a better place in life but it’ll make her feel better wearing beautiful things.

  38. Jasmine says

    Im a single mom to one 3 yr old girl. I recently lost my job and are currently looking for a new one. So I would definitely use the gift card for Christmas presents for my Angel baby. I’ve spent almost all of my savings since being out of work. I’d appreciate it more than you would ever know.

  39. Stacy Clark says

    A Kohls gift card, I would get my husband some work clothes without holes in them. As well as allow me to get some Christmas shopping done.

  40. Kim R. says

    Like you, I’m usually shopping for my boys. If I were to win, I’d shop for ME! As a SAHM, I don’t need a whole lot but realize my wardrobe could be freshened up!

  41. Lauren Whitfield says

    My husband, new baby, and I will be moving to a different state in a couple of weeks and would live to ise the gift card on some items for the new house. Also, my little sister was in a house fire at her friends house and they lost everything. So, I would like to buy them some clothes that they are in need of.

  42. Lisa says

    Wow! I wouldnt know where to start. New bedspread, need towels, shoes, Christmas presents, my daughter needs pants for her hip hop class, I need a new sweater…

  43. Marisol Perez says

    I would love to buy something for myself since I as many mothers do put myself for last. My 2 two boys, husband, and 2 dogs always come first. Definitely would love to treat myself to a little something!!

  44. Jennifer J says

    I would get myself something, like you I buy for everyone else before I buy for myself. My husband is a police officer and I am a stay at home mom so as of right now I don’t have much of a fall wardrobe. Luckily I don’t have to really go anywhere lol But I am blessed to have been able to put clothes on our 4 children! I would love a new outfit or two to feel great about at family holiday events!

  45. Lilly vinzant says

    If I had a gift card to kohls, I should get clothes that I really need for work but I would probably actually get clothes for the kiddos.. way more satisfying :)

  46. Ashley H. says

    I would shop for myself! I love Kohls and their apt. 9 brand. I have to be honest, I usually buy for my three boys before myself, so I would have to buy them each something as well. Kohls kids clothes are my favorite…especially their jumping beans brand and tek gear.

  47. Danielle says

    My little man is growing, growing, growing. Some baby/toddler clothes shopping would be on order with a $100 Khols card!

  48. Olivia C says

    I would love to have a none guilty shopping trip. Being a mom, that’s the first thing in the budget that goes. :)

  49. Amanda Owensby says

    Kohls is my all time FAVORITE!! So many great deals to be had there!! I would use this gift card towards shoes for my kiddos, 3 out of my 4 are in need!

  50. Lisette says

    My team and I have coffee hour in the morning so I’d get a Keurig. The coffee helps us teachers make it through the day, lol.

  51. Jill Andersen says

    I would love to get my children some jeans and some warmer clothes! They just grow too fast 😉

  52. Hannah Butler says

    I would get my family new clothes! I may not even get them from the 80% off section! LOL

  53. Chandra campbell says

    I would shop for my son. Being in a wheelchair he likes a certain type of clothing that doesn’t make him sweat. As the amount of meds he is on he has no control over his heating and cooling systems.. I would also shop for my other two. Considering a 100.00 can go further then most people think. I would love to show everyone.

  54. Michelle says

    I never shop for myself, but hubby and I have lost some weight and all our clothes are big now (yay!)so it would be wonderful to get a few things that fit!

  55. Heather L says

    We are a family of four. I’d spend it on all four of us. Something nice and somewhat matching to wear in our first professional family photo. :)

  56. Krista :) says

    I would start early on my Christmas shopping :)
    My hubby & I have 4 kiddos and 12 nieces and nephews
    to help celebrate CHRISTmas!!! Although $100 is
    Just a drop in the bucket…I’d like to get started filling that bucket :)
    Thanks for all your time & effort, to help our family save every day!

  57. Tracy Reynolds says

    I would use the gift card to buy coats for kids! We do a fundraiser every year at my work and I usually get the coats @ Kohls because it is quality merchandise at a great price. The most coats I have donated in 1 year was 13. With a $100 gift card I could beat that this year :)

  58. Heather Anderson says

    Considering I am 5 sizes smaller now than I was at this time last year…..I need clothes!

  59. Chelsea L says

    I would shop for my younger sister to get her some warm clothes for winter. Thanks for the giveaway!

  60. Tonya says

    I love Kohl’s! I would love to get some Christmas gifts and maybe something for myself (for a change!).

  61. Hannah B. says

    I would definitely use this gift card for Christmas shopping! Kohls has great Black Friday sales!!

  62. Manette Gutterman says

    I never do anything for myself so I will buy myself some new shoes. My old tennis shoes are getting worn out and I could use some style in my life!

  63. Marleana H. says

    I would shop for my husband who REALLY needs an updated wardrobe. I wouldn’t buy myself a thing!

  64. Heidi says

    I would buy something for my husband for all his hard work. He is the only working parent right now and is working 65+ hours per week. I would love to see the look on his face if I got him something just for him.

  65. alison michaud says

    I’m always a sucker for buying things (mostly clothes)for my kiddos. Maybe I would splurge and buy a new outfit for myself – yours sound wonderful. Welcome to TN, by the way!

  66. Patricia says

    I would love to buy some new shirts and sweaters for work. You can get a lot at Kohls for $100!

  67. Cindy says

    First, I’d start on Christmas shopping. I’d probably buy some items, too for a Women’s Shelter that I’m starting to volunteer at. Would LOVE to win!!!

  68. Andrea says

    I’d love to think that I’d buy up some new maternity clothes for myself.. And I’d likely buy some cute winter outfits for my girls.. And the new one on the way :) lol

  69. Yvonne H says

    I need more Fiestaware!! I would definitely add to my collection. And maybe some new socks…

  70. Mary Roe says

    I would treat me and my kids. I am on disability so after all bills are paid, there s not much left to buy nice things. We shop alot at thrift stores and to be able to actually biy NEW clothes would be a great gift to us!!

  71. Megan says

    I recently got engaged but I don’t have many cute outfits! Just a bunch of scrubs from working in the hospital! I would buy dresses and shirts, mostly from the LC collection! That way I would have stuff to wear to upcoming bridal showers and parties :)))

  72. Jennifer M says

    I would shop for my family…with two growing boys and a husband who has to dress up for work this gift card would come in hand big time!! Kohls is a great place to shop for my family :)

  73. Virginia Lewis says

    I would buy shoes for my three kids and husband and a pair for myself if any left. Shoes are expensive and kohls has the best prices for name bran shoes.

  74. Jenny says

    I would like to purchase tiny outfit after tiny outfit for my 4month ol and 2 year old. I would get about $10 in cookies and candy for mommy! But then I’d wait til nap time to eat.them 😉

  75. brenda frantz says

    I’ve been looking at a pair of boots at Kohls. I love shopping in store and online. They have fabulous things at a great price!

  76. Telisha says

    I like you, normally shop for my boys at Kohl’s, so I would shop for myself and my master bath. I’ve been wanting some new towels and shower curtains, stuff like that. I also love Kohl’s jewelry section but usually have to pass becuase I’m on a budget…It’d be great to win!

  77. jessica jones says

    I am just like YOU! I usually shop for me last. Well this time, I too would spend it all on ME. yes, every penny. I just had my 4th baby (and we’re done have kids!) so I’ve been working hard and getting in shape. I’d love some new clothes for my new size :) …yup, I’d be completely selfish and spend on me! lol.

    oh by the way that first shirt you have pictured there is fabulous!!!

  78. Nicole Sheffield says

    I would shop for myself I just had a baby 10days ago and all my cloths are too big! I lost a lot of weight and need jeans bad!!

  79. Debra Miller says

    I am definitely like you and spend on the kids and hubby and always put myself last. I would use the giftcard on getting some new outfits for myself.

  80. Ann Y. says

    I have a new granddaughter (my first grandbaby!)so I would definitely buy more baby clothes. After she was born I went to Kohl’s because she only weighed 6lbs.,7oz. and my daughter didn’t have as many newborn clothes as she needed. I got a boatload of stuff for her…and I mean a boatload, for just over $50! I love Kohl’s!

  81. Jeanette Ford says

    I would get my lil man a new jacket and jammies. And pick a few items for me and my daughters to complete our winter wardrobe.

  82. Shellie says

    I shop Kohl’s all the time, but like the other mothers most is spent on the kiddo’s. I am in the process of updating the house, so I would love to hit the houseware department. I am always looking for bargain deals and buying what is needed not wanted. Would be nice to get a down right wanted item instead of have to have (needed) for a change :).

  83. Lisa Rudy says

    I love everything about Kohls. The prices, sales, selection and the staff is always helpful and friendly!

  84. Tammy Brooks says

    I desperately need some jeans that stay up. After having a baby nothing fits right anymore!!

  85. Marina Cadenelli says

    If I won this I would march strait to kohls and buy my husband some new clothes. He has lost 40 lbs and needs an entire new wardrobe.

  86. Tonja Linton says

    Kohl’s is always having some great sales! If I won a giftcard to Kohls, I would probably shop for my grandson. My daughter lost her job and is having a hard time finding a new one. This way she wouldn’t have to worry about Christmas for him.

  87. Deborah B says

    Kohl’s is a great place not just prices but there staff is great. I would buy school cloths for my boys that I could not get them to start school in this yr.

  88. Krysten Burlage says

    If I WON a gift card to shop, then I’d spend it on myself. I never shop for myself cause as a stay at home mom I just can’t justify it! But, if I won the money to shop, I’d splurge and get myself a few new things!

  89. Shawnda says

    I would love to buy some fall jackets for work and hit some sales for my two boys, Joshua and Nolan. You can get a lot at Kohls for $100!

  90. Siobhan Gile says

    With 5 girls age 2 to 15 they always need something. Right now they are in need of some jeans, some of them look like they are expecting a flood. Hehe. So definitly would be get JEANS.

  91. Shauna James says

    I love Kohl’s! I can get great deals there for all members of my family. I’ve even redecorated my daughters room with bedding and decor bought from Kohl’s. If I won this gift card, I’d spend it on me! I’d buy much needed new jeans and other fun fall clothing!

  92. Lisa Baldauf says

    I would use it to do a little Christmas shopping for my little boys…things are tight this year!

  93. Tina Le says

    I’d love to get something for myself, but my girls need long pants that aren’t jeans to wear to school for P.E. days. They also need new tennis shoes. My hubby’s income has been cut by 60%, so the kids’ stuff would come first. We shop at Kohl’s a lot–they have lots of coupons avail. to save money!

  94. Mary Miller says

    I have never been to a Kohl’s But would use it at one that is located in a nearby town to buy Christmas for my family

  95. April M says

    I would take my mom and insist that she buy things for herself and not me or the grandkids as she always does. She deserves it.

  96. Kim C says

    I would buy some clothes for my baby girl on the way. All I have in my family is boys. Yay, I can finally buy some cute, sparkly girl clothes.

  97. Beckie Carpenter says

    I’ve recently lost 30 lbs and my clothes are literally falling off–so I would prob shop for myself–although it is hard not to shop for my boys :)

  98. Debbie Bennett says

    Would be tempted to buy for myself but really need some fall/winter clothing for my son. Win or not, I love Kohl’s and will be shopping there soon!

  99. corie says

    I would buy a dream gift for my daughter! She is four and has always been fascinated by the St Nicholas Square Village Collection. I would buy her Sophia’s Dance Academy. It would be our first one ever and we would treasure it for years to come. I would use the remaining money for donations.

  100. Amanda says

    I, like you Michelle, normally would spend all my money on my kids. But if I were to win a gift card I would actually buy myself some clothing which I really need right now. I have recently lost 30 pounds and none of my clothes fit anymore. This is one of the best problems to have because I am happy that I have worked so hatd to get rid of the weight but now I look frumpy in my bih clothes. I have three pairs of pants I can wear to work and just a few more shirts than that. I need clothes badly….especially for work. :)

  101. Beth B. says

    Fall/Winter clothes! I need some good work clothes, cute date outfits and cold weather workout gear!

  102. Jennifer engle says

    I have a 3 month old baby and after losing some of the weight I could really use some new clothes and of course something for the baby…

  103. Sabrina says

    I always shop for my four kids but never for myself or my husband. Sadly, a lot of the clothes I wear now are from my high school days, my husband’ old shirts, or my maternity clothes (and my youngest is 10 months). So, I’d shop for myself and my husband. Hope I win and thanks for everything you do!

  104. stacey says

    I’ve recently lost weight, so would love to buy myself a new pair of jeans. The rest I would spend on my family – they deserve it.

  105. Sarah says

    I loooove Kohl’s and shop for everything there! I always shop the ladies and accessories departments and usually browse the men’s to find something for my boyfriend.

  106. Sherri Oliver says

    I would love to take my son winter clothes shopping! None of his winter clothes from last year fit.

  107. Christine says

    I would love to take my Mom on a shopping trip! She is always buying clothes for me because I have four kids and never do it for myself. I would love to return the favor just once but can never afford it. A $100 gift card would be a real treat for Mom (and me too, it would be a great feeling to watch her shop knowing I’m paying this time)!

  108. Tonya S says

    Rock and Republic jeans!!! I, like most moms, always buy for my sweet girl, so I would definitely treat myself if I won :) I love KOHLS!!!

  109. Zory says

    I would definitely shop for myself since I always shop for hubby and children. I would buy some dresses, skirts , and a few tops.

  110. Nicole Brown says

    I would take my guys shopping. My husband hates to clothes shop so I’ll get him a few outfits, my 14yr old whom has autism is almost 6′ tall so I’ll get him a few outfits and shoes so he’ll be handsome for the girls LOL and I would get my 2yr old a few outfits and shoes since he grows out of clothes quickly. And if any is left over I would hit the kitchen department to get a few cooking items since I just LOVE to cook and can’t afford the pricey cookware. :)

  111. Alfreda Ray says

    I would love to win and grab a few outfits. I like you out myself last and with my son entering Senior year and a toddler out growing everything, Mommie comes in last place. I’m still wearing my maturity jeans under a long shirt. Sucks I know but my kids come first and my son will have the best school year ever… Can’t get those years back.

  112. Lauren says

    I will definitely be shopping for me! I am always buying for my 4 kiddos so I rarely get anything new for myself :)

  113. Robin says

    I’d spend it all on clothes and Christmas for my niece and nephew (my brothers kids ages 5 and 2). They have a deadbeat mother and are dealing with a nasty divorce and financial situation.

  114. Trista says

    I would spend most of it on new clothes for myself, but I would pick up at least one item for my husband too!

  115. Shannon says

    I would selfishly buy some clothes for me. I had a baby a couple of months ago and have nothing to wear.

  116. Dara Freeman says

    Great time to stock up on socks and underwear! My kids also need a few things. I could use some tennis shoes!

  117. Alicia says

    I absolutely love Kohl’s! My kids can always use new clothes and shoes because they’re growing so fast and you can get lots of great deals at Kohl’s.

  118. Mrs.M says

    I too buy for myself last. I don’t even have winter clothes for this year for myself. I would love to buy myself some nice clothes for once.

  119. Kim Vanderpool says

    It is FALL and October…therefore I would start my Christmas shopping for my family…maybe even sneak in a sweater for me! :o))

  120. Kim Vanderpool says

    It is FALL and October…therefore I would start my Christmas shopping for my husband and kids…..maybe even sneak in a sweater for me! :o))

  121. Laura J says

    Oh I would get Carter a new winter coat and snowpants! Winter is coming quickly! He grew so much over the summer!

  122. Kristen says

    I would buy my son some new outfits! I would probably also buy my post-pregnancy self some jeans that fit too :)

  123. Tabathia B says

    I would shop for my 2 youngest daughters and I would get them long sleeved tops, sweaters and jeans

    tbarrettno1 at gmail dot com

  124. Christy says

    I am like you and barely ever buy anything for myself. I could use a little help with a new fall wardrobe – thanks for the chance to win!

  125. Katie says

    I love kohls jewelry. I would love to get some new pieces for fall outfits. And I would love to get some new
    Bath towels.
