I purchased a Keurig MINI Plus brewing system really cheap without going out on Black Friday or taking advantage of Cyber Monday. I guess I should start by saying the brewing system is not for me. My husband was getting tired of making a whole pot of coffee and only drinking one or two cups. This was quite a waste of money. So, he asked me for a Keurig for Christmas. Luckily, Khol’s was having some great sales that extended past Black Friday. I ended up paying more for three pairs of socks than the Keurig MINI brewing system. And the socks were on sale too; how is that for ironic? But the socks are going to be a Christmas gift for someone in the family that really loves socks, so it was worth it.

Some Features

  • The Keurig MINI brewing system is only one of two systems that come in three different colors.
  • The color options are: black, red, and platinum.
  • Can choose to make a 6 oz, 8 oz, or 10oz cup
  • Has an energy savings mode
  • Comes with a 12 K-cup variety box
  • Item brews in under 2 minutes

In order to get these savings, I had to spend money to save money. On the first day, I completed a little more than 90 percent of my Christmas shopping at Khol’s. If you want to talk about real savings, I saved more than I spent. I will whet your appetite and pique your interest by saying I saved $626.00. You are probably thinking, “Well what did she spend to save that much?” But the truth is I saved almost double what I spent. And remember, this was for virtually all my Christmas shopping.

Based on the money I spent, I earned Khol’s Cash, which I had no clue how it worked. But I am a quick learner and put it to use right away. Originally I had the Keurig MINI in my cart, and it was actually the first thing rung up. At the end of my purchase, the sales person told me I had a lot of Khol’s Cash, but it could not be used until the next day. I knew back at home I still had a 20% off coupon for Khol’s, which was not valid until the next day either. So, I had her void the Keurig MINI. I received my coupon for Khol’s Cash and headed home knowing I was going to come back the next day with both my Khol’s cash and 20% off coupon.

My second trip to Khol’s, the next day, was quick. I found some holiday socks for a family member and went straight to the cookware section to get my—I mean my husband’s—Keurig.

So what did the receipt actually look like? The subtotal was $114.99: $99.99 for the Keurig MINI brewing system and $15.00 for the three pairs of socks. Then the 90 dollars for Khol’s Cash were taken off. Finally, twenty percent was taken off for the total purchase. Only the Keurig was taxed at 7 percent: I live in New Jersey. This added $1.22 to my total. The grand total spent for the day was $21.21. Someone should play that number today! My total saved for the day was $123.00. And, when itemized, the Keurig was $7.99! After tax, it was $9.21. Here’s the breakdown again:

      Thanks Millionaire Tips. I do have the Khol's card but only use it once a year (this year twice to get the bargains). I don't like carrying balances or purchasing what I can't pay for with money in my bank account. So, I also learned a new trick at Khol's. The woman behind me said I could write a check right there after they swipe my Khol's card and then I won't get a bill. It was great because I could pay for everything and not have a delay in paying it back.

      Congrats on your bargain! I like shopping at Kohls too, because you can get really great deals especially if you have their credit card.

      cardelean, the funny thing is I only shop at Khol's one time a year...and this is it. It is very rare that I will go to Khol's any other time. Good luck with your future purchase. Pick something good!

      I LOVE Kohls exactly for that reason. I went out on Friday and got some Christmas presents for the family and also saved more than I spent. I ended up with $60 in Kohls cash and have my 20% off coupon. I will definitely be using it to make a great purchase like you this week. Now I just need to decide what I'm going to get!
