ยท 9 min read

Kohl’s happens to be one of those stores where the prices, discounts, and sales are pretty remarkable by default. But, why stop there? Check out this unique list that will save you even more money when shopping at Kohl’s!


1. For every $50 you spend, you'll receive $10 in Kohl's Cash.

One of the best aspects of shopping at Kohl's is Kohl's Cash. Rewards members essentially receive free money every time they shop. However, Kohl's rewards customers with Kohl's Cash when they buy during exclusive earning sales, return an item to Amazon, or even simply place an order for free curbside pickup.

Regarding those unique earning windows. Normally, you get $10 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend, but occasionally, you only get $5. You can find out on Kohl's webpage or via advertisements. Rarely lasting longer than two weeks, earning events are followed by a few days-long redemption period.

Three Savvy Secrets:

  • After applying all available discounts and before taxes, you must reach $50.
  • Kohl's Cash is always applied before any percent-off coupons or discounts.
  • Kohl's Cash comes in two colors: green and blue, which only matter if you don't use it before it expires.


2. You have up to 7 days to use Kohl's Cash that has expired (green).

Don't throw away your Kohl's Cash!

Even though it isn't explicitly stated on the Kohl's website, it is possible to redeem expired Kohl's Cash up to 7 days after the date of expiration in-store or online. Give the employee your Kohl's Cash so they can use it toward your order when you're in the store.

Find the item you wish to purchase on if you're shopping online, and then place your order by phone by dialing (855) 564-5705 The associate will add your expired Kohl's Cash to your order.

Blue Kohl's Cash that you obtain through the Rewards program will not work with this approach. Earned Kohl's Cash via Rewards is only valid for one month.

SAVVY SECRET: If for some reason the in-store associate won’t accept your expired Kohl’s Cash, just call the number above and place an order from home. Many in-store associates are unaware that they can accept Kohl’s Cash for up to 7 days after its expiration date.


3. With the Kohl's Rewards loyalty program, you can always earn 5% Kohl's Cash.

Register for Kohl's Rewards in-person, online, or through the app. Simply present your Rewards card, your mobile device, or an email when paying. Then, 5% of every purchase will be placed in your Kohl's "Wallet."

It's simple to keep track of awards. By selecting the "wallet" icon in your app, going to your profile on, or even asking a store employee to search your account using just your name and phone number, you may check your rewards balance.

You'll receive exclusive Kohl's coupons and promo codes all year long in addition to regularly earning rewards with every transaction.


4. When you shop at Kohl's online or in-store, shipping is free.

Generally speaking, we never pay a shipping fee. When purchasing at Kohl's online, the normal requirement for free delivery is a $75 minimum purchase, but you can also get free shipping by placing an order at the Kohl's kiosk in-store.

Here are all the ways to receive free shipping from Kohl's, all of which call for a visit to your nearest Kohl's:

  • Via the Kohl’s kiosk. With the exception of a few extra-large or heavy goods, all Kohl's kiosk orders include free delivery. These electronic in-store terminals allow you to browse the merchandise on and place an order. As with online shopping, stacking promo codes is permitted. Kiosk orders also let you earn and use Kohl's Cash.

  • When location services are activated in a store. When ordering via the Kohl's app while doing in-store shopping, shipping is free. To let Kohl's know you are placing an in-store order, make sure location services are turned on.

  • Choosing the ship-to-store or curbside pickup at Kohl's options. Even though you'll have to travel to a Kohl's location, you won't have to pay shipping on the item you received for free with Kohl's Cash!


5. When returning an item from Amazon to Kohl's, you'll receive a coupon good for 15%–25% off or $5 in Kohl's cash.

It's simple to return an Amazon item to a Kohl's location.

Simply choose "Kohl's Dropoff" when requesting a return from Amazon in your Amazon app. Then, take your item to the Kohl's shop nearest you that has a designated space for Amazon returns. It doesn't even need to be packaged in any way!

Kohl's will package it and send it back to Amazon for you if you present the associate with the return code that Amazon gives to your email. You've now successfully earned $5 in Kohl's Cash or a 15%–25% off Kohl's coupon, depending on the retailer.


6. Look for Kohl's coupons and stack up to four per purchase.

Like we said, remember to always use a promo code while shopping at! According to Kohl's coupon policy, you are only permitted to use two promo codes on mobile devices or up to four promo codes per order. But keep in mind two important caveats:

  1. Per transaction, only one percent-off coupon may be used.
  2. There are numerous brand exclusions for Kohl's coupons, which is yet another reason why we prefer Kohl's Cash, which has less exclusions.

So now let's make sure you are searching in all the right spots because Kohl's is generous with its coupons. Here's where to find the latest Kohl's coupons:

  • Keep up with the most recent discounts and offers by visiting Savvy's Kohl's page. Links to online coupons and discount codes are provided; use these to make further savings at the checkout.
  • Kohl's Coupon Page: Save the Kohl's coupon page on their website. All of the most recent deals and discounts are available straight at the source.
  • Kohl’s Weekly Ad: Check your newspaper or mailbox for paper coupons, or visit Kohl's website to view the current weekly specials.
  • Kohl's App: To keep track of all the ways to save, download the free Kohl's app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. The app gives you access to a virtual personal shopper, and simply scanning the pricing, you can view the item's final price once all coupons have been used. This can truly aid in determining whether the bargain is worthwhile. Any paper Kohl's coupons can be photographed and saved in the app for later use in-store.


7. Consider getting the Kohl's credit card to receive monthly coupons for 15%, 20%, and 30% off.

If you shop at least once a month, just take the Kohl's credit card into consideration. If approved, you'll get a voucher for 35 percent off your first Kohl's Card purchase.

However, the largest benefit for cardholders is the monthly 15%, 20%, and 30% off coupons that Kohl's delivers to cardholders. This makes it much simpler to visit Kohl's once a month.

By the way, you'll qualify as one of Kohl's "Most Valuable Customers" if you manage to spend more than $600 in a calendar year. 

SAVVY SECRET: We truly like the $0 minimum free shipping. Yes, you read that right. Shipping is always free for Kohl's M.V.C.


8. Mail-in rebates after purchases can help you save even more.

With only a few minutes of work, you could save up to $40 or $50 with Kohl's mail-in rebates! Prepaid Visa cards, cash back, redeemable credits for future purchases, and other incentives are all possible rebate offerings.

Before buying tools, cookware, or small electrics (like an electric toothbrush), always check Kohl's rebates because we also see rebates on these products the remainder of the year.


9. Take advantage of Kohl's sales events to save 40–70% on swimwear, bras, and bedding.

It pays to be aware of Kohl's sales schedule and coordinate your shopping trips appropriately, unless you intend to do a year's worth of Kohl's shopping on Black Friday (hey, we wouldn't blame you - more on that offer below).

One of the benefits of keeping track of the top Kohl's sales week after week going back years is that you get to notice when they occur. The following are the events you shouldn't miss:

  • January: Bedding and home furnishings are 40 to 65% off at Kohl's, and every $50 you spend earns you $10 in Kohl's Cash.
  • March: Bras are discounted by 60% at Kohl's semi-annual intimates sale. Spend $50 and receive $10 in Kohl's Cash.
  • Late May/Early June: Kohl's Memorial Day Sale: 50–70% off swimsuits, with an additional $5 in Kohl's Cash for every $25 purchased on women's sandals and swimwear.

  • September: Kohl's Labor Day Sale: 60% off kitchen appliances, 40% - 50% off shoes, and 70% off The Big One bedding. For each $25 spend, get $5 in Kohl's Cash.

SAVVY SECRET: If the discounts offered during these deals don't wow you, check out Kohl's clearance department the weekend after they end to save an additional 10 to 20%, if not more, if you're lucky enough to find anything in your size.


10. Find the hottest Black Friday deals and save 50% online at Kohl's.

When it comes to Nintendo and Fitbit, as well as pajamas, slippers, comforters, and towels, Kohl's Black Friday regularly offers some of the finest discounts.

There is simply no reason to visit the shop because the price points and the Kohl's Cash are same there and online. Unless you enjoy commotion, crowds, and missing out on the best discounts.

Why is Kohl's a top Black Friday shopping destination? Because Kohl's sale pricing are comparable to those at Target or Walmart, but because every purchase at Kohl's earns you Kohl's Cash!
