16 Tips for Saving Money at Kohl’s

Kohl’s is your one-stop shop for everything to spruce up your space and update your look for less — and there are many ways to save on top of Kohl’s promo codes. Check out these simple ways to shop at Kohl’s while getting the most for your money, especially when you shop with Rakuten to earn Cash Back on all your purchases.

1. Sign Up for Mobile Alerts

With our busy schedules, we don’t always have time to keep up with the sales at our favorite department stores. But Kohl’s now offers text-message alerts to notify you of upcoming promotions and events. Text “SAVE07” to 56457 to get a 15% off Kohl’s coupon sent to your phone and sign up for mobile sale alerts. Kohl’s sends only five to seven texts per month, and you can opt out at any time.

2. Shop During Kohl’s Cash Promos

Every so often, Kohl’s runs a Kohl’s Cash promotion in which you receive $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent in-store or online on all regular, sale and clearance items (excluding gift cards). Kohl’s policy reads that you only need to get within $2 of the first threshold to your Kohl’s Cash.

Spend your Kohl’s Cash online or in Kohl’s stores during the specified time period, which is typically about 10 days following the promotion’s end. There is no minimum price on the items you can redeem, so if you’ve had your eye on a pair of earrings or something else under $10, use your Kohl’s Cash and snag it for free.

3. Save Retroactively

If you forgot to use your coupons while shopping on Kohls.com, don’t worry. As long as your coupons are still valid, you can call customer service and ask them to apply the coupon codes to your order.

4. Shop the Gold Star Clearance Event

Kohl’s already has some of the best clearance racks around, but prices get even better during the Gold Star Clearance Event! With prices up to 80% off, find the dresses and beauty products you’ve been wanting or stock up on kids’ and men’s apparel for the rest of the family. In addition, you can still use any Kohl’s coupons (or Kohl’s coupon codes if you’re shopping online) for extra savings.

5. Yes2You Rewards

With Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards, you get one point for every dollar you spend by simply showing your card at the register or providing your email address. For every 100 points you collect, you receive a $5 reward and 30 days to redeem it. You can even share your points with family, friends and charities through Kohl’s Cares.

As a Yes2You Rewards member, you’ll enjoy a special birthday gift, eight savings offers annually and additional opportunities to earn bonus points. Download the Kohl’s app to earn 50 Yes2You points.

6. Open a Kohl’s Credit Card

If you are a frequent shopper at Kohl’s, you may want to look into opening a Kohl’s credit card. As a cardholder, you’ll be able to take advantage of benefits such as special discounts of 15% to 30% at least 12 times a year. You’ll get 25% off your first purchase using your new Kohl’s card and receive a 15% off Kohl’s coupon in the mail with your card.

If you charge $600 a year on your Kohl’s card, you’ll become a Most Valued Customer and receive at least 18 exclusive discounts annually, such as pick-a-day savings or additional coupons. Stack these savings on top of your Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You Rewards points, and you’ll be able to find some great bargains.

7. Free Shipping and Returns

Spend just $75 on Kohls.com and get free shipping on your order, plus free returns at any Kohl’s stores. With the original receipt, you’ll get a full refund or exchange, and other payment methods will be refunded in Merchandise Credit. You can still return online orders by mail by printing out your order invoice, packing up your items and shipping them. Kohl’s is not responsible for return shipping costs.

8. Check for Rebates

Save even more with mail-in rebates on select items. Check your purchase for a message about potential mail-in rebates. Kohl’s rebates can save you even more money in just a few minutes. See the current list of Kohl’s rebates. This is a great opportunity to save on household goods and essentials.

9. Stack Up to Four Coupon Codes Online

Kohl’s will let you use up to four Kohl’s coupon codes on your online order, as long as they are different types of coupons (percent off, dollar off, free shipping and Kohl’s Cash or Yes2You rewards). Take note that when you shop on a mobile device (not the Kohl’s app), you are only allowed to use a maximum of two promo codes. Although you may enter your promo codes in a different order, they will always be applied in the following order during checkout:

  1. Department-specific dollar-off or percent-off promo codes will be applied to the qualifying items.
  2. Any dollar-off coupons (such as Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You Rewards) will be subtracted from your subtotal.
  3. One sitewide percent-off discount will be applied.

10. Always Have Your Coupons Handy

If you received Kohl’s coupons in the mail, avoid losing them by scanning them with the Kohl’s app. In the app, go to “Wallet” then “Scan to Enter” to secure your money-savers.

11. Shop Power Hours

Shop Power Hour specials (typically every second and fourth weekend of the month) to save an additional 10% to 25% both in-store and online. Night owls can shop in-store from 3 p.m. to midnight on Fridays, while early birds can hit the racks on Saturday mornings when stores open.

12. Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store

Buy online and choose the option for free in-store pickup if you need something quick. All orders are ready to be picked up in just two hours, and you will get an email letting you know that it is ready.

13. Price Adjustments

If the price of an item you purchased is further reduced within 14 days, bring your receipt to Kohl’s and they’ll pay you back for the difference (excluding clearance and BOGO merchandise). Head to the customer-service counter or call 855-564-5705 and request a partial refund. See Kohl’s full price-adjustment policy here.

14. Senior-Citizen Discounts

Wednesdays are senior days at Kohl’s stores. People over age 60 receive a special 15% discount in stores. The discount is good on regular-priced, sale and clearance merchandise, but it cannot be used in conjunction with Kohl’s Cash or other discounts, so it might be best to use on hot items that you want to snag before they get to the clearance rack.

15. Download the Kohl’s App

“It’s coupons. It’s a store. It’s so much more.” Kohl’s is right. With the Kohl’s mobile app, you can find everything right in the palm of your hand. Store and access your Kohl’s Cash, Yes2You rewards points and more on your mobile device. When you shop at Kohl’s stores, you’ll have a handy price scanner, too.

16. Get Cash Back at Rakuten

Use Rakuten to earn Cash Back on your online purchases. Join for free, and use the Rakuten portal to shop online at Kohl’s and earn a percentage of your purchase back. Rakuten has Double Cash Back specials every week that feature select stores (including Kohl’s on occasion).

    I just shopped at a Kohl’s store and when I got home I remembered I signed up for Ebates. Is there a way to put today’s purchases on Ebates for the cash back from these purchases?
