  1. tried numerous times to entry shoptowinit. have 25%off and others. will not accept my phone number. ridiculous…won’t try again…

  2. I won 3 of the 25% off Everything single-use shopping passses on the “shop it to win it” sweepstakes. But when I printed each of them out, they all had the same “PIN” number and Promo Code Numbers –so will they honor all three of my passes or will they think I just copied one email (since they were all sent to me on the same day/same time)???

  3. SHOP IT TO WIN IT SWEEPSTAKES CODES WJ9P15DZ T66WV5LP NL3WB5X5 VR1G1547 82VCR50C 0B5N651P 1RZ759R HOPEFULLY THIS IS WHERE I ENTER THESE TO FIND OUT IF I WON A PRIZE THIS IS THE ONLY SPOT I COULD FIND

  4. Kohls has my birth date. I NEVER PUT VITAL INFORMATION ON MY COMPUTER. THIS IS VERY UNFAIR OF KOHLS. GUESS THEY DO NOT NEED MY BUSINESS. SORRY ! ! ! ! FORGET YOUR GAME PIECES.

  5. I’ve tried several times to enter. Each time it says that my page time has expired & to re enter the page again
    which I have tried to do. If your website isn’t any easier to use than this I give up. It seems to be a BIG WASTE OF TIME !!!!! I’d love to enter but CAN’T ! Kudos to those if they are able to enter. The ones that have entered should have a good chance because a LOT OF US CAN’T ENTER IT SEEMS !

  6. tried several times to enter it won’t go thru no wonder no one ever hears of anyone winning YOU CAN”T ENTER!!!!!!

  7. Tried several times to enter this contest but there is always some kind of error message..they should not gives this little cards out if they don’t work..Always a gimick to these promotions..

  8. I tried numerous times to enter codes and it keeps saying time up and reload. I type fast and have accurate information entered, this is soooooo frustrating., disappointed in Kohl’s!

  9. I have the following sweepstakes numbers which I was unable to put in your code block since there is no way to say I have read your rules. Here are the numbers 3B9J951C, Z73035X5, DG9PC5RV,3252H5X9, 89V4P54C, 6Z89T5DW, 7J3V75RK, Z3KBX569, KNKD555R, Please see that these numbers are entered as you are the only one obviously who can do this on line. Please advise if I have won anything, you have my email address on this message.

  10. I TRY
    MY BROTHER TRY
    MY NEPHEW TRY A COMPUTOR WIZ
    YOUR SYSTEM DO NOT WORK, I SHOP AT KOHLS TO MUCH FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.
    NOT GOOD FOR BUSINESS VERY BAD VERY VERY BAD

  11. Just sent my unhappy comments to Kohl’s on this Shop it to Win It Sweepstakes, let’s see if they read and respond to my very unfavorable comments on this game. Kohl’s is my favorite store, love the coupons and the $10 for every $50 you spend promotions but this game is ridiculous. When you finally find the right screen, enter all of the required information and then submit, the screen pops up you have run out of time and must resubmit. I am not slow or senile and entered my information in a timely manner and after 3 attempts, am very frustrated. Hope Kohl’s actually reads their comments and does something about this bogus game. They need to post the winning numbers in their store or some place, otherwise this is a fraudulent game in my opinion.

  12. Love it, love it —shopping at Kohl’s, while listening to “We’re all in this together.”

    Haven’t heard this song lately, please use it again . it is my very favorite and hypnotizes me, so I can tell my husband that I didn’t know what I was buying since I was hypnotized.. Yes, yes, please play this one some more times.

  13. “Session key has expired, please reload the page”–this is the message that I have received each time that I tried to input my code. Stupid!! I spent $300 so I have 12 of these things that I can’t even attempt to claim. Notice SweepstakesMag.com’s information, taken from the bottom of this page:

    We provide Americans with an online resource of sweepstakes towards helping people to find the best sweepstakes available online. The site is rich of carefully selected content and presented in a user-friendly format.

    “User-friendly format”–yea, right! RIdiculous!! I used to love Kohls but this new promo that they are trying is a dud. Hey Kohls–if you are reading this, skip the sweepstakes and just give Kohls cash!!

  14. I received 2 shop to win it 20% off scratch off coupons but this site would not let me enter my code.
    So I went to Khols store with the card and they would not accept it because you had to down load it.

    Had my purchases but could not use the gift card they gave me. GUess what? I did not buy the merchandise.

  15. Well i hope this is where i enter my cards for shop it to win it my card is C85434V4 and R0JLX49D. Thanks and if this is not right will you please let me know.

  16. I entered all mine (like 10 of them) and my friend did hers as well on same day, she received her emails 3 days later to print her 25% off. Etc. And now 2 weeks later and I’ve yet to receive mine at all. She does have a Kohls charge and I do t so did this make a difference? I tried enter in them again but I just said I’ve already entered them. 🙁 don get it!!

  17. This is terrible! By the time I punch in all the info you require, it says that the session has timed out. Frustrating a customer is NOT the way to go.

  18. I have a 25% off winning card and have tried 2 connect 2 their website. NO LUCK!!
    I guess they dont want 2 honor anymore winners.

  19. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO ENTER MY CODE. MESSAGE KEEPS COMING UP THAT MY SESSION HAS EXPIRED AND TO RELOAD THE INFORMATION. WHAT TIME AND WHAT INFORMATION.

  20. Spent 100 dollars today and got 4 coupons. Nothing worth going through the trouble of entering for. After reading all these comments, I am not even going to try. This is a stupid contest. I totally thought that a scratch off would either give me a prize or say sorry, try again. Will not recommend this to ANYONE.

  21. I HAVE 5 TICKETS…First i tried the site to get my
    “CONGRATULATIONS; you’ve received a 20% Kohl’s One-Time-Use Shopping Pass”…
    It said, “We’re sorry! Kohls.com is unable due to scheduled maintenance.Please check back later. And then it issued me a 15% off “limited time” coupon.(which was not what i was after)
    Days later I tried again, got to the website, entered my winning 20% Kohl’s One-Time-Use Shopping Pass code # and it said my session time was up. REALLY!…
    So I re-entered, …and it said “sorry,the CONGRATULATIONS; you’ve received a 20% Kohl’s One-Time-Use Shopping Pass is not a winner” REALLY?
    Well, FYI Khol’s will not accept the winning playing card because you have to down load it. ROUND AND ROUND WE GO!
    Well, I have 4 other regular entry cards, they also said “sorry you are not a winner”…
    OF CAUSE NOT..IF MY WINNING CARD SAYS “sorry you are not a winner” HOW COULD I EXPECT “4 other regular entry cards” TO DO ANYTHING..
    KOHL’S..FORGET THE GAMES..YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PLAY, STICK TO WHAT WORKS.. Kohls cash!!

  22. this code deal is terrible I can not navigate before it tells me i am shut down a terrible idea that kohls has done

  23. THIS IS TERRIBLE,I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO ENTER MY CODE A MESSAGE KEEPS COMING UP “SESSION KEY HAS EXPIRED RELOAD THIS PAGE” 🙁

  24. Kohls Whats Happening with this Shop it to Win It? Will not allow me to enter the codes I have. The site is telling me over and over to “reload the page” session expired? Dissapointed :~(

  25. this is too much work, this game makes me think how great your store really is. you stink. i m not shopping here anymore. this is the way you treat your costumers. i don t usually do this its too much work. you make your costumers look like fools. that not good. i m shopping elsewhere. good luck you r going to have alot of angry customers. you going to need all the help you need. oh while i m here. how come you put shoes on sale up on the shelf and when i go to look , the shoes are not there. i have to look, and look, just to find out you don t have the item. shame on you. i checked your shoe dept out a few times and i have not be able to locate the sale item. not the way to run a business , i surprise you are still open.

  26. They will not let me enter my code. Who ever is running this is doing a lousy job. So, why don’t you enter my code: X 3 2 B 1 4 B 2.

  27. I have 2 game pieces from the store. I have tried to enter the required info on their website- it will NOT let me. It says session expired. Meanwhile, it has taken me all but 30 seconds to type in the required fields….I don’t get it. At all!!! This is a bad experience and Kohls should know better!!!!! I guess I cannot “cash in” my 25% savings to shop at the store. Maybe I won’t shop at the store ever again based on this.Target wants my $$ too!

  28. I tried submitting my number in the Shop to Win it Sweepstakes, and was rejected. The last thing I need in my life is a program that doesn’t work. If this game represents how Kohl’s is managed you may count me out as a customer beginning today.

  29. I agree with everybody else. I have 7 cards and it tells me session has expired. What a crock! I will shop at Belks instead.

  30. Why does Khols continue to give out sweepstake tickets when they know so many people are having difficulties with entering their scratch-off codes? I just tried to enter 7 codes and kept getting the same message as everyone else who are having problems, “reload the page, session had expired”. Based on the comments for this website, these problems have been in existence for at least 2 1/2 weeks.

  31. This game is stupid. I have been trying to enter my codes and it keeps telling me that I have to be over 18 to enter. I am well over 18! I have winning game pieces and can’t redeem them! I very fustrated!

  32. Very dissapointed!!! Unable to enter my code for a long time.Session key
    expired. Finally you are not a instant winner. Ok just dont make it so
    complicated. Thank you

  33. well iv really never shoped at kohls ,but i did yesterday and loved the sale .ill be shopping there again for shure.i had no problem entering my codes had 3 but the first one dont know if i won .guess if i did itll email me hu,would be nice to win the sweepstakes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. could you make this winit contest a little more difficult? i love shopping @ kohl’s but this is more trouble than it’s worth you are wasting money & your customers time

  35. I agree completely with how terrible it is to try and enter this contest. Love shopping at Kohls but totally disappointed in this contest.

  36. Have no idea how to claim my prize. I will just take it to the store and have them help. Need to make this site more user friendly.

  37. Same comment as all of the above. Not a fun way to end a great shopping time at Kohls. Next time I am handed one of those I will go directly to the office and ask the young lady to check it for me.

  38. This site lets me enter all my information and then tells me “sorry you must be 18 to enter this sweepstakes” and I am 45 years old@!!!!!!!!!! No matter what birthday i put in i still get this same error. anyone else?

  39. The card said I had already won a 25% Kohl’s one-time Use shopping pass I typed it in and got “Sorry you’re not an instant winner. What gives? no you

  40. I have always liked Kohls but this Shop It to Win it is a joke. I can’t find a place to enter my prize code if that is indeed the code at the bottom of my scratch off.

  41. Well thank goodness nothing is wrong with my computer…i kept getting Session time is expired … website /sweepstakes needs help!! Not happy!

  42. keeps saying have to reload code. what seems to be the problem with Kohl’s. If you run a contest you should be able to receive entries. Very disappointed with contest

  43. What a joke. I have all these sweeptake tickets and can’t even get on the web site which is not working to win it or redeem the % of coupons. 750 bucks spent for clothes. You got my business now stop giving out useless stuff. Very disappointed.

  44. I just finished scratching and entering 21 cards and nothing! I won two 20 percent shopping days, which we all already have. Lame and a waste of time. Anyone win anything??

  45. I entered my code number and did not win any prizes,but my tikets say I have won 20% off a One day pass,Do I just bring this ticket in?
    Thank you ,it was fun,should be more of these games=:)

  46. My code said I won a one time 20% shopping pass. Claim your prize when you sign in and enter your #. I am still waiting for my 20% shopping pass.

  47. I got a one time 20% instant win but when I entered my code it said not a winner mabe this is a ploy to get you to shop at Kohls.

  48. I could not enter the store codes. Not good customer relations. Codes are 4R34T233 and WG74T2GJ. We are loyal customers, but expect systems to work.

  49. I’m trying to put my codes in , but since this page is showing that “promotion ends on 9/3/2012” and my tickets are saying something diffarent september 27th, 2012,I’m not sure if this a waste of time, let me know whats going on…

  50. I got my tickets on sept 3 2012 and they didn’t tell me the sweepstakes was over and that I couldn’t even enter them.I had 29 tickets. They are: CB05V27R 9C7372H4 WN70244 73VP32RV ZJ16W2D6 60VZH29C 329LV252 84JX72T2 ZZ6ZR2X7 9L6TD25X H39W12NT 5KK872JH LG79C2R2 RB28N248 5DZXG2N5 ZJ4KH2KB ZNKKH219 74XGJ2N1 643RL2TW B952H2GR 0K9982H0 9KXXP2MJ WC2PM25M 0T8J220P 6P51K2MN V8ZZ420W 1W1TW266 847LT2NP 2DZN22GJ I am a very good customer and I spend alot of money at KOLH’s. They should give us time to enter the codes or at least tell us we had to enter them by the 3rd of Sept. I am very dissappointed in your customer service for not letting us enter the codes for at least a week or 2 after the tickets have been given out. I want to hear from someone about how they are going to handle this bad rap. My phone number is 949-855-0845.

  51. Like others before, I too have tried multiple times to submit my codes but web site says sorry temporarily unavailable and loops me back to home page. So what happens to those that keep trying but are unable to redeem due to website error? Will someone get in touch with us before 9/21/12, and more importantly, is anyone monitoring the website?

  52. I have 6 game pieces and have tried and tried to get on the web site. Unable to, this is a waste of time. What a joke, “go on the web site”, NOT…………..

    Now that it is over you can get on the web site, maybe we will stop shopping at Kohl’s…………..

  53. I entered my 6 codes and one said I won 25% off one time and that i would receive an email with the coupon…of course never received it…I think this is another game to get you excited about spending money at kohls, now we will all receive spam mail trying to get us to come in for the big sale….YAY…not a happy customer

  54. I have 9 sweepstake numbers to submit, but it will not let me enter them. I was so looking forward to even getting to see who wins what. Oh well….I guess it’s the old advise…”don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”

  55. I too have several codes and it will not let me load them. I buy alot of stuff from KOHL’s and this has been a pain. I’ve spent almost 30minutes trying to ge my code numbers into the computer. It said the contest was good until Sept. 21st. What gives?????
    I am not happy with this contest and it has lowered my feelings of Kohl’s for the time I’ve lost.

  56. I have tried before and now to get on this web site but all I ever get is a bunch of other advertisements Ditto to everyone else’s claims what a bunch of waste of my time.

  57. I too have 9 game pieces that I am unable to submit. The site keeps telling me to enter the code which I have or unable to give me a game piece because too many request or winners–I already have the game piece and entered the code. Very disapointed and wastwed my time.

  58. got the same message as several other complaints!!!Is the game pieces still valid or not? I also spend big $$$ at Kohl’s!!! What gives??

  59. I got a $5.00 promo gift on shop it to win it, but cant find where to enter the winning number and got tired of “navigating” to find it, so I called local Kohls store for help and NO ONE COULD HELP ME, said they were not informed or given info on this promo but just tell people to go online…….too bad because I am a BIG Kohls shopper and a senior and do not need this aggrevation. Would rather have my % off. Does Kohls really need to do this type of “promo” in the first place.

  60. I entered 10 cards around August 30, it took me awhile to get all of the numbers entered, and then the website said that it would take a few hours to list my numbers for me to check. I was not aware that it was over yet. I spend a lot of money at Kohls ! That’s why i git so many cards ! Bad sweetstakes, shame on you Kohls, I thought more of your store than this!

  61. I ALSO AGREE WITH EVERYONE ELSE! WHAT A WASTE OF TIME…MAKE IT EASIER ON US SHOPPERS WHO SPEND LOTS OF MONEY AT KOLHS…I ALSO GOT A 20% COUPON..HEY..WHERE IS IT?

  62. I agree this was not a fair way to play, I had 10 tickets and no one tall me that will end the 3 of September, I also belived it was a total waste of time I did too got a 25% coupon and it is gooooon!!!!! in never land.

  63. I think Kohls should give a 30% discount coupon for each
    sweepstakes ticket turned in to the store from which they
    received them.

  64. Same problems many others are experiencing. Couldn’t even get anywhere to put my instant win codes it. What’s up with this. I too am a long time Kohl’s customer and am very disappointed this event would be held in such a shoddy manner. Come on people and get your act together! These days people need to know the place they choose to shop has their best interests at heart. I will be eagerly awaiting news on how Kohl’s plans to deal with this problem.

  65. YUP- I GOT SUCKER’D ALSO. HAVE TICKETS THAT COULDN’T ENTER IN. AND NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE THAT WE ARE LOYAL CUSTOMER’S THAT SPEND LOT’S OF MONEY AT KOHLS.WHATEVER HAPPENED TO TAKING CARE TO THE CUSTOMERS?

  66. I had no trouble with my codes or the web site. On the back of the ticket it says must redeem by 9/21/12. I think this is something fun for shoppers. They need to do more. Hope they let me know if i have won.Thank you kohls.

  67. I had a $10 gift card…I have not heard anything about it. Kohl’s is always a great store to shop at….where is my gift card????

  68. I thought the scratchers were fun, but I n was suppose to receive some gifts and wanted to see the results for the whole contest. I still have not received anything.

  69. How do I know if I am a winner? I entered at least 5 times! Is there a winner’s list? And all of a sudden, I have not been receiving my usual emails from Kohls! What is going on Customer Service?
