    I always stumble with the same incorrect discount counting.

    In your video for Kohl’s you have:
    15% – Ebates cach back
    10% – coupon
    9% – discounted gift card
    20% – bonus for future

    You count this way:
    15%+10%+9%+20% = 54%

    While actually is this way.

    Your cart is full of items totaling $100.
    Apply coupon code for %10 – $90 left.
    You use discounted gift card to pay, so your COGS go down to – $90*(1-0.09) = $81.9
    Ebates will credit you 15% from cart price = $90 * 15% = $13.5, so your COGS is $81.9 – $13.5 = $68.4
    Plus, Kohl’s will give you 20% rewards – $90 * 0.2 = $18

    So your final COGS is $68.4 – $18 = 50.4

    So in total you would receive 49.6% discount rather than 54% (if you sum all the accounts).

    So would you buy an item if at first it would show for you 40% ROI, while actually it is 36% ?

      A lot of people make this mistake! Good catch. Usually the difference isn’t substantial BUT there are times where it could serve as the difference between being a marginal buy versus a marginal pass. In this example, it would still be a buy for me.
