Donna’s Deals: 10 Ways to Save Money at Kohl’s


As the holiday approaches, you may have started a list of gifts for friends, family members, teachers, and the list keep getting bigger.

We found these 10 ways to save money at Kohl’s from Heart Hook Home and we had to share them here.

1. Sign Up for a Kohl’s Card.

Twelve different times per year (about once a month) Kohl’s offers charge card holders 30% off discounts that you can use IN ADDITION to their other rewards programs. If you do not have a Kohl’s charge, they usually give you 15% off during those same times. Not only can you stack those coupons/discounts, but if you shop online you’ll usually get FREE shipping too.

Spend $600 or more in one year and you’ll be placed in their “Most Valuable Customer” program which nets you EIGHTEEN discounts per year.

2. Sign up for YES2YOU Rewards. 

You need a Yes2You Rewards card. It’s FREE and you’ll get $5 in rewards for every $100 spent. Redeem your points on anything in the store and you can stack those savings with other coupons and Kohl’s Cash.

3. You Don’t Have to Spend $50 to earn Kohl’s Cash. 

Did you know that you don’t actually have to spend the $50 to earn your Kohl’s Cash? Oh no! It’s more like $48.

Spend $48+ and they’ll round it up to $50 giving you the $10 reward. It’s explained on their website.

4. You can Stack Your Discount.

Did you know that you can use up to FOUR different promo codes when shopping Kohl’s online?

Note that if you are shopping on a mobile device you will only be able to use two codes, so you’ll want to use a laptop or desktop computer if you have more than two codes to apply to your order. Also, note that you may only use one site-wide % off code (like 30% off entire purchase) and one free shipping code per order. But you can stack those with other threshold or department codes if you have them.

5. Shop the 2nd and 4th Saturdays

On the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, Kohl’s offers some of their biggest discounts. During their “Early Bird” and “Night Owl” sales, you typically see the rock bottom prices with additional 10-25% off. You can use coupons on top of these prices, as well as rewards.

Night Owl sales start on Fridays at 3:00 pm and run through midnight. The Early Bird typically last from opening until 1:00 pm on Saturday.

6. Know the Return Policy. 

Did you know that there is no time limit on the returns at Kohl’s? For the first 12 months after your purchase you will get cash back (or a credit on your Kohl’s Charge card).

No receipt? No problem. If you do not have your receipt but used a charge card (any, not just Kohl’s charge) they will be able to look up your purchase within the last 12 months.

If you do not have your receipt or the card you used to pay, Kohl’s will give you Merchandise Credit at the lowest price that item has been in the most recent 13 weeks. No receipt needed for purchases made with a Kohl’s Charge Card.

7. Price Adjustments 

Buy an item (not on clearance) one day and notice it cheaper shortly thereafter? If you notice a lower sale price within two weeks of your purchase, you are eligible to receive a price adjustment. This is just one of the reasons it’s a good idea to keep your receipts. Just head to customer service and get the difference put right back in your pocket.

If you purchased the item on, you can get the price adjustment by calling their customer service department at (855) 564-5705.

8. Know the Price Match Policy. 

Kohl’s will price match in-store only and deals from a brick and mortar store only. This means they’ll match Target, Best Buy, Walmart etc. but not Amazon (since you can’t physically go TO Amazon).

You’ll want to take the physical ad with you to the store; one showing the current sale dates and descriptions and prices.

They will not match wholesale or club prices, and they will not match Kohl’ prices.

9. Check for Rebates.

Kohl’s offers rebates. Make sure you check this page on their website for rebates – this link will never change but the offers will.

10. Download and Use the App. 

While shopping in-store, use their wi-fi and open their app. You’ll often get a coupon for your purchase, and you will receive 10 Yes2You Rewards points just for using the app.
