at Kohl’s may look a lot like the same deals you’ll get at other retailers — discounts on Xbox and PS4 game console bundles and the like. But the big twist that Kohl’s adds is tossing in a bundle of Kohl’s Cash with your purchases. Long story short, if you’re a frequent Kohl’s shopper, the Kohl’s ash may give these deals the nod over similar sales at and (though Target is also offering gift cards with some purchases).
Don’t forget that if you’re shopping at Kohl’s, come prepared for the best savings. The Kohl’s mobile app tracks discount codes and Kohl’s Cash. And you get $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 that you spend online or in the store. Plus the Yes2You reward program gives a $5 for every 100 points you earn — and you get a point for every dollar spent.
You won’t have to wait untilto nab some of these deals, though. Aside from the sales that go into effect on Nov. 25 online, as well as in-store at 5 p.m., local time on Thanksgiving Day, there are deals available right now. Here’s a roundup of what you can get now and what you can snag later on.

Google’s Home Max is aimed at folks who want a smart speaker, but would really like better audio quality at the same time. Think of it like a Sonos Play:5, but from Google. Of course, it builds in Google Assistant, so you can use it to control music, command smart home appliances and hear the news.

And this deal makes the PlayStation VR all but irresistible.
