Around Thanksgiving, I saw a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer in the paper for $139.00. This is a FANTASTIC price, esp since the cheapest I've ever seen them start was $199.00. From there they just go up by a LOT. My plan was to get to Wal-Mart early and get me a mixer. I got there around 7:15am, late by Black Friday standards, but I've been there early before for something that they had so much of, it was still on that sale price a week later. I wasn't worried.
Until I saw someone walking out with one as I was walking in. PS, there were none left. I was SO disappointed. I didn't think I lived in an area where this would be a hot item. When I got home I spent the next few hours and then the next few days searching on line for this great deal. It was gone.
Fast forward to a couple of days ago.......My friend has a Kohl's card and they were having a deal where when you use your card, you get a percentage off your total purchase. She happened to get the highest amount possible, 30% off. That is 30% off the entire purchase! On top of the already slashed prices and clearance items. Now that's a great deal!
So we meet at the store and I'm getting stuff for our upcoming trip. I'm looking at their boots and as I go to sit down, I look up and suddenly I see it. A Kitchenaid stand mixer on sale for $149.00. Limited time only. Three left. I drop the boot and run to the stack. This is only ten dollars more than the one at Wal-Mart AND another 30% off....
My total price was $105.00.
For a Kitchenaid stand mixer.
AMAZING! Do I need this? Nope. Can I afford it? Not at all. But it made me VERY happy and I view it as a therapy session. Retail therapy is SO much better than group! I plan on using it this wknd.
Oh and I got additional Kohl's Kash for my total purchase. Free money for more shopping!! I just LOVE good deals!
While my Kitchenaid was the best deal I got, I also had free money for Bath and Body Works. (this is the one good thing of a poor economy, stores give you free money to walk in their doors!) I got some soaps and creams (LOVE their Cucumber Melon smell), but I found this in one of their bins.
Isn't she cute!!!!
I've named her Wooly.
