    Stopped into Kohl's earlier today looking for another couple of Poly Bag Christmas Trees.  I found just one but also spied the new Disney Frozen Story book and wait for it!  On the shelf was a half full box of Series 21 Minifigs.  Needless to say I spent the next 15 minutes trying to feel through what was there.  Managed to find 2 Centaurs as well as most of the rest of the set.  I haven't opened them yet but I think the only one I will need to search further for is the Airplane girl.  I think I found everything else but the Space Policeman.

    Stopped by a couple of Kohl's today looking for Minifigures, but found none. They did have a couple of new 2021 city, and Marvel sets out.

    Kohl's currently has 10% off some Disney Princess sets including the new Raya sets.  Also they have 10% off Dots sets.

    Today, November 5th, until midnight central time, is a Kohl's Cash day ($15 for every $50 spent, must be used between the 6th and 18th of November; fine print).
    Online, the largest sets available include the Technic #42131 CAT bulldozer and #71741 Ninjago City Gardens.  They also have the #21325 Ideas Blacksmith Shop.
    Like last year, the Kohl's cash can be stacked with the 30% off sale, though "Select" is only 9 sets as of now.

    So IF

    a) you spend right at a $50 increment AND
    b) you have something you would already be buying at Kohl's between the 5th and the 18th,

    this is effectively 30% off even if buying a set at MSRP. The 2nd part of that IF is the big downside for me. If you use the money at Kohl's on another Lego set at full MSRP, the % discount is effectively reduced because you're locked into paying full MSRP for the 2nd set of purchases. For example:

    Purchase #1: Ideas Blacksmith, $150 (let's assume you can find something for a few cents to put you over)
    Kohl's Cash: $45
    Purchase #2: Scout Trooper Helmet, $50 - $45 in Kohl's cash, net $5 spent.

    So you spend $155 for $200 in Lego at full MSRP. That's effectively a 22.5% discount on the total of all purchases. Not bad if you're looking for sets that aren't typically discounted much. But not significantly better than if you wait for a Lego store and/or [email protected] Double VIP window with a good GWP, like we should see later this month, or if you can get the sets from Amazon, Walmart, or Target for 20% off. In fact, Target at 20% plus the 5% Red Card discount is the best option of those. That would have you pay $152 for the same 2 sets I used in my Kohl's example.

    ^It doesn't change your conclusions, but for your above example, the Buyer should receive another $5 or $10 in Kohl's Cash:
    Kohl's has a loyalty program called "Kohl's Rewards" (details) where they issue $5 of Kohl's Cash for each full $100 you spend, with a look-back period of one year.  These Rewards "Cash" are only issued on the first day of each month, and once issued, have to be used within 30 days.
    In the Ideas Blacksmith example, the Buyer would get $5 of Kohl's Cash on December 1st.
    Additionally, another $5 in Kohl's Cash could be earned if the Buyer chooses to pick up an order in-store, rather than having it delivered, which I assume only applies for orders above the free shipping threshold of $75 (details page).  However, this offer is capped at one per 24-hour period, so if a buyer picks up, say, 3 orders on the same day, they will only receive $5 of Kohl's Cash, not $15.  Also, some items may be ship-only, so a pick-up option may not be available.
    In the example, these two Kohl's Cash credits would be issued separately from the main $45 credit, which would likely mean at least one and perhaps two extra trips to a Kohl's location to buy a small Lego set, so the credits' relative value would be diminished.

    Looks like Kohl's Black Friday sale currently is a whopping 5% off list price on many sets including some newer ones and some very expensive ones.  On the plus side they are giving $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent.  Better deals elsewhere for the most part unless you can make use of the bonus Kohl's Cash.

    ^If, and only if the $15 is applied towards LEGO.  I tried that last year and asked an employee walking by and she said "yes" $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 applies to LEGO...but then get up to the register and I get the "No" from the store manager.

    According to the website the earn $15 Kohl's cash is valid on Lego.  If you click on any sets over $50 it will tell you how much Kohl's Cash you will earn on the set.  That Store manager was wrong.  I would have argued the point with them by showing the proof on their website.
