How-to Shop Kohl's: Tips & Tricks

Kohl's is one of our favorite stores to shop during Black Friday because they not only offer low prices, but they offer discounts and Kohl's cash that stacks with these low prices. Here's a few of our tips for getting the best deal at Kohl's this Black Friday.

Kohl's Cash
Kohl's Cash Kohl's generally offers $10 KC on purchases of $50+, yet we all know that they usually up the ante to $15KC on $50+ for Black Friday. A neat tip about Kohl's Cash is that you don't actually have to spend the whole $50, you only need to spend $48. The system will automatically apply the Kohl's Cash, but it doesn't tally in your total until after you have added all of your coupons and rewards. It's not a rule, but if you make multiple purchases in one day that total $50, you may be able to go to customer service to receive KC.

Kohl's Yes2You Rewards Program
Kohl's Yes2You Rewards Program This is a free program to sign up for and awards you points for every purchase that you make. You will earn 1 point for every dollar spent, and 100 points equals a $5 reward. You don't receive the reward until the month after you earn the 100 points so keep that in mind for the holiday season. Throughout the year there are opportunities to receive bonus rewards so keep an eye on your emails.

Kohl's Credit Card
Kohl's Credit Card Kohl's offers their own credit card and once a month they offer free shipping and 30% off. They also offer a few other perks throughout the year exclusive only to cardholders. If you're worried about having a credit card, you can make your purchase on your card and then write a check to pay off your card all at the same time!

Kohl's Wallet
Kohl's Wallet This was just introduced this year online, it was previously only available in the app, so it's the first time we'll really be putting it to the test. Kohl's wallet allows you to add your Kohl's Cash, Yes2You Rewards, gift cards and coupons so that they are all stored in one place. You can view your balances and expirations all from either the online version or the app. The nice part about this is you can take a coupon code you find online and add it to your wallet to use in-store! If you do use the mobile app, when you log into your Kohl's Wi-Fi and open the app and exclusive coupon code will pop-up!

Kohl's Pay
Kohl's Pay This is a new addition to the mobile version of the Kohl's Wallet that allows you to add your Kohl's card to your mobile wallet and then pay for your in-store purchases from the app. You will be able to apply your discounts, receive Kohl's Cash, Yes2You Rewards and pay for your purchase all from your phone.

Kohl's Rebates
Kohl's offer their own rebates that can generally be used with a coupon. Products that qualify for a rebate will say on their product page that there is a rebate available, and you can also check out the Kohl's Rebates page. We always see super cheap small kitchen appliances during their Black Friday sale by stacking coupon codes and rebates together.

Kohl's Emails
Kohl's Emails Kohl's sends out an email every day and usually it's just product offers or it features their latest coupon. Every once in awhile they will send out bonus offers or coupons. A few times over the last year they have sent out mystery coupons with a value up to 40% Off! They also recently sent out coupons for $5 off a $5 purchase, which made for free items! I make sure to open their emails at least once a week so they don't get filtered to spam, but I mostly watch for the big discounts and free offers! Plus, if you're a new email subscriber they will send you a coupon for 15% off your next purchase.

Kohl's is currently offering a ton of different discounts! You can use up to 4 different coupon codes at a time, but they need to each be from one category. You can use one sitewide, department, free shipping, and Kohl's Cash/Rewards code all on one purchase. Here are the some of the codes, all of these expire on October 23, but you can find more coupons on Kohl's coupon page here!

  • $10 Kohl's Cash for Every $50 Spent
  • "CIDER30" - 30% Off for Kohl's Cardholders
  • "SHIP4FREE" - Free Shipping for Kohl's Cardholders
  • "TRICK15" - 15% Off
  • "TREAT20" - 20% Off $100+ Purchase
  • "HOME10" - $10 Off $50+ Home Purchase
  • "TOY10" - $10 Off $50+ Toy Purchase

Examples of stacking using the above coupon codes:

  • Ninja Coffee Bar with Glass Carafe for $159.99 - 30% using coupon code "CIDER30" - $10 using coupon code "HOME10" = $104.99 shipped. Plus receive $20 in Kohl's Cash to use on a future purchase!
