Kohl’s…

is a really cool company.  Usually I keep my blog fairly impersonal.  Don’t want to bore you all with my everyday boo-hoo-ing. 

I have to tell you about this though.

Recently, we have been having some problems with having enough money for everything.  Same story that’s going on all over the country.  Everything is more expensive, no raises for the Husband and I can’t get anyone to hire me, yadda, yadda, yadda.  Every month I have to decide what gets paid off, what gets paid on and what gets held on to.  Our biggest problem has been medical bills.  Well, this last month I decided I needed to pay on some of them as they are seriously past due.  As a result, I have gotten behind on my Kohl’s charge (which I did not use during Christmas, I was so good, I didn’t use any credit!).

Today, in the mail, I got a notice that they would do something they call their “match a payment program.” If I would make the minimum payment due, once it clears, they will credit my existing balance by $50.00.  Folks, that isn’t a typo.  I said $50.00.  Their exact word were “We want to help you bring your account to a current status.” How cool is that!  I tell you, I had tears in my eyes when I read it because it means so much to us.  I spoke with someone on the phone and explained that I wouldn’t be able to pay on the account until the last day of the  month (payday), so she took my information and they are post dating my payment  until February 1st. 

I don’t know too many companies in this economic atmosphere who are really concerned about their patron’s financial situation.  Most companies are all about the bottom line, the big bucks, the fiscal report.  Not Kohl’s.  They actually care about us and that is HUGE in my book. 

So, as a final word on the issue…go shop at Kohl’s… they are good people!

I'm so glad to read this. I shopped at Kohls over Christmas and they gave me so many discounts and cash back and bonus bucks that I felt like they were paying me to shop there! Thanks for being such a great supporter of my blog. And good luck with the bill shuffle. I know it's not easy...

Their motto is Kohl's cares and I guess they really mean it.
