My wife loves the department store Kohl's. She is a member of their frequent shoppers club and she gets their mystery scratch off bonus coupons and their Kohl's cash rebate on what she spends there. What I hate? The fact that two men's dress shirts are $110.00 if I walk in cold to buy them. But with her various discounts and Kohl's cash and mystery discount, the shirts at the register are only $40.00. And the cashier always announces that with your special discounts you saved $bazillion dollars. Mrs., who is very shrewd with figures, can't even keep track of the amount of the various discounts she gets at Kohl's. I just learned that I do not go there without taking her cards, coupons and cash certificates.
Harbor Freight is far easier to deal with and figure out. regular cheap price minus 20% coupon. or special item coupon, that happens to be 20% off most of the time. As for the freebies, I have a dozen tape measures, one in each car, one in the laundry room toolm box, two in the barn, etc. The free screw drivers, yes, a set in each vehicle and multiples in the house and barn. Flashlights, the same, probably 30 of them in vehicles, various drawers, shops, campers, sheds, etc. Got one hanging on a hook next to each barn and shed door for power outages. Sometimes, I do not even take the freebie, got enough of them.
