Kohl’s Haul–How Much Can You Take Home for $100 + Giveaway

Jennifer here–


Before my trip for New York, I got a gift card from Kohl’s. If anyone needed clothing for a trip — it was me! Kohl’s wanted to see what I could “haul in” with my $100 gift card. Little do they know just exactly how savvy a shopper I am, so armed with my coupons, my giftcard, and my shopping buddies, I hit the stores running!

We shopped for nearly three hours scouring racks and racks of clearance. There were so many beautiful tops and shoes to choose from. I grabbed a pair of heels off one of the mannequins so that I could visually see what the outfits that I chose would look like.

After picking out all of the cute shirts, dresses, and shoes, we hit up the jewelry section — 80% off! Some sets only cost me $2.30!

All in all my Kohl’s haul cost me $105.30 and I got ALL of this plus the jewelry included above:

  • 5 shirts
  • 1 white  wrap
  • 1 dress
  • 1 set of pajamas
  • 1 pair of flip flops
  • 1 pair of dressy shoes
  • and all the jewelry!

The story on the dress shoes

Once I got to the register to pay for my purchases, I received Kohl’s Cash ($10 for every $50 you spend) to spend on another purchase. I came back to the store a few days later to get shoes to match my Red Carpet dress and found these on sale for $16! FREE is my favorite form of payment.

Now — it’s your turn!

Kohl’s wants to see what you can “haul in”. One lucky winner is going to get their very own $100 gift card to use and share about their own haul. You can share your haul on the Kohl’s Haul of Fame Facebook page. Here is how their contest works:

  • Customers can upload their haul videos or photos to the Kohl’s Facebook page.
  • Customers can vote on other uploaded haul videos or photos (public voting will count as part of the final score).
  • Each week of the promotion, five winners will receive a $500 Kohl’s gift card.

    Sorry if this is posting twice, it said I was posting too fast but only posted once. I was at Kohls yesterday and saw some super cute tops for 40% off so I would definitely get some summer tops and shorts!

  2. Jenn says

    First I would get some new shoes and then I’d have to check out the clothes for ME :) I do a good job of keeping my kids clothed in cute stuff but haven’t bought new things aside from essentials I had to have for myself in a few years! I’ve got the shopping itch, but not the cash :)

  3. says

    I was just at Kohl’s yesterday I got a giftcard for my birthday and made a $80.00 haul and love what I got!! Would love to go back because like you I got some Kohl’s cash I’d love to use!!

  4. says

    Don’t you love Kohl’s? You’re totally my kind of shopper. I always crazy awesome deals there. For a while they were sending me $10 off a $10 purchase coupons, so most of the stuff I got was free! If I won, I’d outfit for my family for the next 6 months, and probably buy some outfits for my favorite babies too. :)

  5. Brandy W. says

    I would try to get as much as I can! Jewelry, dresses, shoes, boots and jackets/sweaters to be more specific lol

  6. Jamie Brigham says

    I would buy my son summer clothes and myself some women’s bras and panties. I desperately need some new bras.

  7. Ashley Hatten says

  10. Tracy Robertson says

    I need some new capris for summer. I would definitely pick up a pair or two, and a new bathing suit. If I have enough left over (I probably would with Kohl’s sales) I would get a new pair of tennis shoes. Thanks!

  11. megan h says

    clothes for me i haven’t bought anything since i had a baby 7 months ago and my body isn’t going back yet so i think i need some new stuff that will fit this new mommy body.

  12. Amanda B says

    I would buy my family some summer essentials. This new mama needs a few new things since last summer I was pregnant and my new little guy and hubby could use a few things too. :)

  17. Just Coupons says

    I would get some summer sandals and I love the towels there. I’d probably spend the rest on new towels.

  18. Laura Workman says

    I’d buy a nice dress and some outrageous high heels! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  19. ky2here says

    ‘found money’ would allow me to replace basics – belts, socks underwear etc. This would be fantastic.

  20. Adela says

    Oh You did pretty good, but I really hope I win b/c I know I could really do SOO well with this! I am a master shopper, and know that I could stretch that $100 and really impress!

  21. Vickie says

    ohhh. :)
    I just found you site tonight and signed up to get your feed.
    Also, I have moved recently to a new city that has a Kohl’s…so excited. I haven’t purchased anything yet. But, really want to get this summer seasons must have a maxi dress or skirt, some flops and maybe some nice new sheets for our new condo.

  22. sassy says

    As a single mommy of two, I tend to focus on my kids’ needs over myself. if I won this, I would purchase some clothing for myself.

  23. Joanne Schultz says

    We’ve got a family reunion later this year, so I could use some nicer summer clothing! That’s what I’d use the GC for if I won!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. Tammy1409 says

    I always prefer to shop for clothes for the kids. As a result, my wardrobe is pretty pathetic. If I won I would spend it on myself for once!

  25. Roseanna Smith says

    I would spend it on baby clothes and necessities for my baby due at the end of next month. Time has flown by and I still have so much to get.

  26. Kat Riley says

    I am in the process of losing weight – so I would use it to buy some new clothes in my new size!

  27. Heather M says

    A new wardrobe for me. I haven’t bought clothes in over a year, I had my son in December

  28. says

    I’d hit those 60% – 80% off sale racks for some new clothing. I’ve recently lost some weight and I need a new wardrobe. This would be awesome.

  29. says

    I’d buy me some much needed clothes. After having shoulder surgery this January, I’ve been either in pj’s or work out clothes (sans working out). It would be nice to actually get some clothes fit, aren’t elastic waisted, and are wearable outside the house 😀

  30. says

    This would be amazing to win! I’ve been wanting to buy myself and my daughter a couple new Spring/Summer outfits. Plus, a new pair of sandals would be really nice! Thanks so much.

  31. Chrystal D says

    I’d give it to my mom. She shops there a lot & she’s helped me with so many things lately I’d LOVE to help her get something nice for herself!

  32. ThatGrayGirl says

    My mom and I have been losing weight together and would love a little shopping spree as a reward.

  33. randi says

    I’d probably buy clothes for my 2 yr old granddaughter & clothes for my granddaughter who’s due in september. Buying little girl clothes is so fun!!

  34. Cody says

    I would be putting it towards birthday gifts for my girlfriend and grandma.

  35. Cheri Anne says

    I would spend the money on something new for my bedroom. Possibly some wall decor or a new set of sheets!

  36. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says

    This will likely sounds a bit mundane – but my Honey/Hubby needs some new basics – the kinds of things that are not fun to shop for (or buy!) but a man must have. So I might use a $100 GC to take care of such “must haves” as a couple of new belts, socks, suspenders (one pair) and some nice (dress) shorts. That way I could take care of necessities and THEN I could afford to splurge on something just plain fun and extravagant for his Father’s Day gift!

  37. Crystal F says

    I need an outfit for my daughter’s bridging ceremony so I would put it towards that. thank you!!

  38. John Stetson says

    Since Kohls is my wife’s favorite store I don’t think this prize will last too long.

  39. Crystal says

    My husband needs new clothes for his job & I haven’t bought new clothes in about 2 years – we both really could use this!

  40. Betsy Hoff says

    Love Carters clothes for children and Kohls carries Carters so the kids would fair off well!

  41. Lynn R says

    New bedding for my son’s room, some stuff that actually matches! and some summer short/t shirts.

  42. Kelly Britton says

    Love shopping at Kohl’s, I would take the $100 and find as many bargains as I could. I could use some new nightgowns, so would start there.

  43. Debbie C says

    I need new summer tops so I would spend the Kohl’s card on them.

  46. Julie North says

    I love Kohls and I’m going on 2 trips in the next 2 months! Winning this would be so cool!

  56. says

    My grandson insists on outgrowing his clothing and he’s getting very close to the next size- most would probably be spent on him for a summer wardrobe overhaul. :)
