If you're going to shop Kohl's Black Friday 2022, you should definitely start here. We'll teach you everything you need to know about Kohl's sales and Black Friday discounts.

For the past four years, we have studied and tracked Kohl's Black Friday sale data, and history has a lot to teach us about getting the best deals.

Before we get into the good stuff, here's a quick and dirty rundown to whet your appetite:

We have compiled all the essential information you need to know, such as how to use Kohl's Cash to maximize your savings, below. We also have deals if you just want them: 2022's Best Kohl's Black Friday Deals.


1. Kohl's Black Friday 2022 has already begun. Deals will be available throughout the month.

Kohl's Black Friday ad has already been released. Deals will be available throughout the month until Black Friday. The exact schedule is listed below.

Kohl’s Cyber Monday 2022

  • Kohl’s Super Cyber Monday Only Deals will begin Saturday, Nov. 26.


2. On Thanksgiving, shop Kohl's Black Friday 2022 online (stores are closed).

Are you curious about Kohl's Black Friday hours? Kohl's will be closed on Thanksgiving 2022, so don't plan on shopping there. However, you can shop at Kohls.com before, during, or after your Thanksgiving celebrations. If you enjoy shopping, you can do so on Black Friday. You don't have to go into the store if you don't want to. All of Kohl's Black Friday deals are available online!


3. Kohl's "Doorbusters" have been renamed "Super Deals."

Historically, "doorbusters" were insanely hot deals that retailers only offered to people who stood in line on Black Friday. The phrase has gradually come to mean "insanely hot deals." (In almost every case, no store visit is required.)

In 2021, Kohl's dropped the term "Doorbuster" in favor of "Super Deals." From midnight CT on November 25 - 26, Super Deals were available (Thanksgiving and Black Friday). There were a lot of clothing deals, such as 80% off leggings, 75% off women's boots, and 60% off men's pajama pants, as well as one really exciting ride-on toy deal: the LandRover Ride-On was $149.99 (regularly $299.99). However, unlike in previous years, the Super Deals were not necessarily Kohl's best Black Friday offerings.


4. Spend $25 or more and get free shipping from Kohl's.

Kohl's has previously offered a lower free-shipping threshold during Black Friday. Normally, the free shipping minimum was reduced to $25. In 2021, however, you had to spend at least $75 to receive free shipping. Thank goodness, it appears that the minimum will be reinstated in 2022.

If your purchase is small, choose free store pickup instead.


5. Use a promo code to get an additional 15% off.

Kohl's always offers a 15% off coupon code, but some brands are excluded. In 2022, Kohl's will offer 15% off in-store and online purchases from Friday, November 4 to Thursday, November 10, and then again from Sunday, November 20 to Friday, November 25, using the promo code ENJOY15.


6. During Black Friday week, get $15 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend.

From November 20 to November 25, you can get $15 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend during Kohl's Black Friday week. It's an excellent opportunity to rack up Kohl's Cash for future purchases.

Normally, Kohl's Cash promotions offer only $10 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent, but during Black Friday week, the reward is increased to $15 in Kohl's Cash. So a single large-ticket item, such as their KitchenAid 5-quart mixer and attachment bundle (regularly $499.99, now $349.99), would net you $105 in Kohl's Cash.


7. Make use of your Black Friday Kohl's Cash is available during Kohl's Cyber Monday.

Kohl's Cash earned on Thanksgiving and Black Friday will not be redeemable until Cyber Monday. But what about the good news? It will be available on Cyber Monday! So, unless you see a killer deal on something you've been eyeing for a while, wait until Cyber Monday to use your Kohl's Cash.

During Black Friday, look for game consoles, cameras, or KitchenAid mixers. Then, while your Kohl's Cash is still active, shop to make your own sales on items that aren't marked down as low.

When you factor in Kohl's Cash on top of Kohl's Black Friday 2022 savings, it appears that Kohl's may have the best prices on half of the items on your list.


8. Kohl's cardholders receive deeper discounts, and rewards members receive a special offer.

If you have a Kohl's credit card, you can use the valid 15%, 20%, and 30% off coupons that you receive each month during Black Friday. If you aren't already a card member and want to become one, you'll receive a code for 35% off when you sign up. Use this when shopping for the holidays.

Not a fan of credit cards? Sign up for Kohl's Rewards. It's free, and during Black Friday, there's usually a member-only deal, such as $10 off a $50 home purchase. You'll also get 5% back on every purchase you make.


9. By mid-November, sign up for Kohl's text and email list to receive two 15% off coupons.

By mid-November, you should be on Kohl's email list. We've seen a "$5 off a $5 purchase" Black Friday coupon in the past, as well as a mystery coupon for Kohl's Cyber Monday.

Here's how to get two Kohl's 15% off coupons:

  • Text SAVE02 to KOHLS (56457).
  • Join the email list to receive an additional 15% off coupon.

Keep in mind that Kohl's Cash is calculated on the price after coupons (but before tax — thank you, Kohl's). If you want to earn as much Kohl's Cash as possible, save your coupons for the second trip (the one where you'll spend the Kohl's Cash).


10. Save up to 90% by using the Kohl's app to find rebate deals. You'll also receive Kohl's Cash!

Kohl's occasionally offers mail-in rebate deals that can be combined with their Black Friday sales. These aren't always available, but when they are, you could save a lot of money.

To find these rebates, download the Kohl's app and search for "rebates" in the search bar. All current rebates will be displayed in the Kohl's app.

In 2022, we see that Toastmaster, Black + Decker, and Hamilton Beach appliances will be eligible for $12 mail-in rebates.

Many kitchen appliances that are normally $24.99 will be available for a couple of dollars after the 15% off coupon and $12 mail-in rebate are applied.

Also, make sure to check the rebate limits. There is usually a limit of five of the same item per household, but this can vary.


11. Buy your Fitbit at Kohl's rather than Target on Black Friday.

Regular readers are aware that we enjoy publicizing Target RedCard savings. That is still true. However, when Kohl's Cash rewards are considered, Kohl's outperforms Target on Fitbit deals during Black Friday 2022.

During Black Friday week in 2022, Kohl's has the Versa 2 and Fitbit Charge 5 on sale, plus you can earn Kohl's Cash.


12. Shark vacuums will save you $178 during Black Friday 2022.

Kohl's is notorious for discounting upright Shark vacuums by 40% - 50% off the regular price on Black Friday. In 2022, I was able to stack coupons and increase my savings to 64%, saving me $178 in total, plus I earned $50 in Kohl's Cash and $5 in Kohl's Rewards.


13. Save $0.30 per bath towel by shopping at Kohl's rather than Macy's.

Towels are a great thing to buy at Kohl's after you've already earned your Kohl's Cash, and they're super cheap on Black Friday. What's better? In 2021, on the day after Black Friday deals (Saturday), you could use a mystery code to get them for even less than Kohl's Black Friday prices. Certainly less expensive than what you'd find at Macy's.

In 2022, Kohl's sells The Big One bath towels for $2.49 - $3.99 (or $2.11 - $3.39 after applying the 15% off promo code), compared to $2.79 for Macy's Sunham towels on Black Friday.


14. However, instead of buying bedding sets at Kohl's, go to Macy's.

Macy's Black Friday deals on multi-piece bedding sets are unrivaled, even by Kohl's.

During Black Friday 2022, both stores offer steep discounts on bedding, but Macy's takes the lead with a 3-piece comforter set for $19.99.


15. To avoid shipping fees, choose in-store pickup.

If your order does not qualify for free shipping and you live near a Kohl's, choose free in-store pickup. When you pick up in-store, you may also receive an additional $5 in Kohl's Cash. We are suckers for free money.


16. Return your Amazon purchases to Kohl's and you'll receive $5 in Kohl's Cash.

When bringing returns to 8 million different stores, keep this in mind: you can combine your Kohl's and Amazon returns into one trip by bringing them all to Kohl's. That means you can easily return your Kohl's purchases as usual, and then return Amazon items using a relatively simple process.

Begin your return by going to Amazon's returns page and selecting the Kohl's drop-off option. You'll then receive an email with a QR code, which Kohl's will scan when you drop off your returns.

What's the best part? If you return Amazon purchases to Kohl's, you will receive $5 in Kohl's Cash. This coupon states that it can only be used in-store, but if you add it to your Kohl's app wallet, you can use it on any Kohls.com purchase.

Except if you live in Anchorage, Alaska. Please accept my apologies. The Anchorage stores are the only ones that will not honor this.
