Getting a $100 Kohl’s coupon in exchange for answering a few questions sounds great, right? But, it is a scam, just like last week’s Costco $75 anniversary Facebook coupon.
The scam has been circulating on Facebook and claims Kohl’s is giving $100 coupons to celebrate the company’s 57th anniversary to people who complete a short survey.
A Kohl’s spokesperson told TODAY, “This offer did not come from Kohl’s or any of our authorized partners.”
These scams are typically used to garner personal information as a way to steal identity.
According to Snopes, “Users who respond to those fake offers are required to share a website link or social media post in order to spread the scam more widely and lure in additional victims.” Snopes debunked the Kohl’s coupon scam as well.
