I’m going to let you in on my biggest secret. I buy thousands of dollars worth of Christmas presents each year at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing quality! I’m a huge proponent of being thoughtful and getting the perfect presents for my loved ones, but I’m also an advocate for saving money wherever possible.

I buy the vast majority of my Christmas presents on one day each year. Veterans Day! Veterans Day is observed on November 10th this year, just 6 days from today!

“What a random day for Christmas present shopping!” you must be thinking. I agree! But in between celebrating my veteran hunk of a husband, I do a boatload of online Christmas shopping at Kohl’s.

When you purchase product totaling $25 using your Kohl’s Charge Card and the following combination of promotion codes, you’ll only pay $7.50. When you factor in that Kohl’s has already discounted their items before your $25 total, you’ll realize your savings are remarkable. I usually spend between $20 and $30 on my siblings each Christmas. When I use the Veterans Day sale, I can usually get $100-$150 worth of presents for each person while still sticking with my budget.

The Nitty Gritty Details

Remember, in order for this to work, you’ll need a Kohl’s Charge Card. If you don’t shop at Kohl’s much, you’ll need to decide whether or not you want to add to your credit, but for this one sale alone, if you plan on fully taking advantage of the deals, I highly recommend it.

Add $25+ worth of product to your cart. You can’t have $24.99; it has to be at least $25 for the codes to work.

The sale is November 11th and 12th this year! 

Apply APPLE30 for 30% off your entire order.

Apply VETERANS for $10 off of $25.

Apply MVCFREENOV for free shipping.

$25 – 30% ($7.50) – $10 = $7.50


The key to this sale is to make several small purchases – the math doesn’t work out right if you add everything to your cart at once. The code is for 10 off 25 and doesn’t scale up to 20 off 50, etc.
