Kohl’s Shopping Tips and Tricks. Never Pay Extra at Kohl's Stores.
Kohl’s might just be one of the best bargain shopping spots around and it often flies under the radar. The department chain sells everything from baby gear to kitchen appliances. The first look at prices might be deceiving, but once you know the coupon system and the reward programs, you will understand why Kohl’s is so amazing and so worthwhile.
Take a look at 6 simple ways to save while shopping at Kohl’s:
1. Kohl’s Cash
Kohl’s gives generous cash rewards during special events, which are announced online, on printed mailers, or via email. Shoppers usually get $10 Kohl’s cash for every $50 spent. The cash vouchers will be printed for you during the check-out or sent later in the email. You can spend that cash online or in store. Some events, like Black Friday offer $15 for $50 spent.
One important tip: you will still get your $10 Kohl’s cash even if your purchase is $2 short of $50. So go ahead, spend that those $48 – you are welcome!
2. Get Kohl’s Charge Card and sign up for Yes2You rewards
Kohl’s card can really make a difference if you shop there often, especially on days like Black Friday. Upon signing up you can enjoy 25% off your first order and then additional 15% off when the card comes to you in the mail. Those are significant savings.
Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You programs are extra discount gold mines. Kohl’s Cash program has some limitations, but with Yes2You program you will be earning cash on every dollar spent every day. One dollar is one point and you will get $5 after every 100 points.
3. Mail-in rebates
A lot of bigger purchases come with included mail-in rebate from Kohl’s. You will have to take time and mail it in after the purchase, but the savings definitely make this work worth it.
Make sure you follow all the small print advertising and find deals like 10% off some brands or items. Kohl’s is known to offer 20% off some larger kitchen appliances and gadgets during Black Friday sales. Some of those deals are never posted online in advance. You should always keep an eye on such savings before committing to more expensive purchases.
4. Stack coupons
Now that you have collected all the possible deals with cards and rewards, the main thing still remains – coupon and discount stacking for the ultimate savings.
You can stack four discounts as long as you have one of each. This is how it works:
- One site wide % off discount (20% off total order for Black Friday)
- One category % off offer (10% off KitchenAid stand mixers)
- One $ off deal ($10 off $50 purchase)
- One shipping offer (free shipping on everything)
Coupon stacking won’t void your Kohl’s Cash, Yes2You points, and you will still be able to mail the rebate. If you sign up for Kohl’s newsletter, you will get additional savings sent to you via email a few times each month.
Coupon stacking can save some serious cash all year long, but it’s never as important to get the best you can as it is on Black Friday.
5. Coupon later
If you ever manage to find yourself at Kohl’s without coupons, don’t worry. You can always send a copy of your receipt and the coupon you should have used to the customer service, and they will refund the difference. Make sure the coupon was valid on the day of your shopping trip.
6. Extra discounts and free shipping in-store
We are all for shopping online, but store visits have some perks. If you connect to the store Wi-Fi, you will be awarded extra cash discount, something like $5, $10 or even $15 off your purchase. If you place an order to your home from the in-store kiosk, you will get free shipping. This is especially nice when something that you like is sold out.
