Q. Does Kohl’s use fictitious prices in order to give discounts? I recently purchased a coffee maker at the Walpole store for $39.99 on sale for $34.99, using a 15 percent off coupon. I later found what appeared to be the same coffee maker online with a list price $10 less than I paid with the discount — and selling for $19.99. I’ve tried to get an explanation from Kohl’s, but they don’t respond.
