22 Ways to Save Money at Kohl’s Every Time you Shop

It’s easy to save money at Kohl’s with their Kohl’s coupons, Kohl’s cash, and amazing sale prices. Known for its savings on clothing, household goods, and electronics, there’s something for everyone at Kohls.

Check out our hottest tips on saving money at Kohls.

1. Always check Kohl’s for coupons

Head to Kohls coupons page and see what offers they have available before you shop. They show you how easy it is to stack offers and maximize your savings. They often have super savings if you use your Kohl’s charge and offers for those not using a Kohl’s card.

Never shop at Kohl’s before looking for coupons first, whether shopping in-store or online.

2. Sign up to receive Kohl’s text messages

Earn at extra 15% off if you sign up for Kohl’s text alerts. Kohl’s will text you the offer code within 1 day of signing up. You can opt out at any time, but the savings you’ll receive are often exclusive, and they’re a great reminder of available savings.

3. Sign up to receive Kohl’s emails

Earn at extra 15% off if you sign up for Kohl’s emails including sale alerts and exclusive coupons. Kohl’s will email you the coupon after you sign up as well as future emails about sales and coupons. 

4. Sign up for Kohl’s Rewards

Earn 5% back on every purchase, so $5 for every $100 you spend with Kohl’s Rewards. The balance accrues in your Kohl’s rewards account within 48 hours of purchase. If you hit the $5 threshold, you’ll earn $5 Kohl’s cash on the first of the next month. 

You’ll receive the Kohl’s cash in your email and it will store in your Kohl’s wallet (if you have a Kohls.com account). You have 30 days to use the Kohl’s cash.

5. Earn more cash back with Kohl’s rebates

Check the Kohl’s rebate page for extra savings after your purchase. Read the fine print to make sure you buy the right product and/or spend the right dollar amount. Print and mail or email your rebate form to receive the savings.

6. Earn more Kohl’s cash during Kohl’s cash sales

Kohl’s often runs promotions where you can earn $10 Kohl’s cash for every $50 spent. Check the dates you have to spend the $50 and the dates you can redeem your Kohl’s cash. You’ll receive your Kohl’s cash via email. 

7. Use expired Kohl’s cash for up to 10 days after expiration

This may vary by store, but most stores allow you to use your Kohl’s cash for up to 10 days after it expires. Ask at customer service in-store or call 1-855-564-5705 to place an online order over the phone and ask the associate to apply your expired Kohl’s cash. (You can’t use it online yourself, the system won’t accept it). 

8. Stack Kohl’s coupons

You can stack up to 4 coupon codes on Kohls.com. You can combine sitewide percent off promo codes, department coupons (dollar off or percent), and dollar-off coupons like Kohl’s Cash. Kohl’s applies the coupons in the following order:

  1. Department specific coupons, such as $10 off $50 on children’s clothing or department coupons for a specific percentage off
  2. Dollar off coupons like Kohl’s cash
  3. Sitewide percentage off discounts

You may use one sitewide percentage off discount per order, but multiple department-specific promos (for different departments) and multiple Kohl’s cash rewards.

No matter the coupons you have, Kohl’s will also apply the sitewide percentage off coupon last.

Free shipping codes don’t count toward your four promos, so you can add that on top of your savings. Gift cards also don’t count toward the coupon count. You may use up to 4 Kohl’s gift cards for payment.

9. Shop Kohl’s clearance sales and save up to 80%

Save up to 80% on Kohl’s clearance sales for the hottest markdowns. Shop by category or price, for example $5 and under, $10 and under, etc. Stack your clearance savings with coupons for maximum savings. 

Clearance savings are the highest at the end of each season, but check it out year-round for surprise savings.

10. Sign up for a Kohl’s credit card and save 35%

Apply for a Kohl’s credit card and if approved, you’ll earn 35% off your first purchase. You’ll also receive exclusive coupons and savings opportunities including an anniversary offer each year. You can combine your credit card savings with any Kohl’s cash or rewards for maximum savings.

Kohl’s often holds special sales just for charge customers, so it’s worth it to apply. 

11. Price match lower prices at other stores

Kohl’s will price match other in-store pricing and Kohls.com prices in-store. Show the cashier an ad from a local store with lower pricing to get competitor’s pricing. The ad must include all details of the product, sale dates, and any exclusions. 

If you find a lower price on Kohls.com (prices sometimes vary), show the price on your mobile phone. The cashier will verify the price, product, and details before honoring the lower price.

Price matching isn’t eligible during Thanksgiving week and the following week. It also doesn’t apply to any products excluded from coupons.

12. Get a price adjustment if prices drop

If the price of a product you bought drops within 14 days of purchase, you may get a price adjustment (aka refund). To qualify you must:

  • Have the original receipt
  • It must not be part of a buy one get one deal (when you bought it or when you ask for the adjustment)
  • The item must not be on the Kohl’s exclusion list
  • Purchases made Thanksgiving week or the week after aren’t eligible

If you bought the product online, call Kohl’s customer service at 1-855-564-5705 to request the adjustment or visit your local store. If you bought the product in-store, visit the customer service desk at your store.

13. Take advantage of Kohl’s free shipping

When you make a purchase of $75 or more you qualify for free shipping on the “STANDARD 3-6 DAYS” shipping option.

* No exclusions or Promo Codes.

14. Save on shipping with free ship to store

You don’t need to spend a certain amount to get free shipping with Free Ship to Store. Certain items are labeled Free Ship to Store. You have 7 days to pick your item up from the customer service department at your local store. This is a great way to save on shipping when you don’t spend $75 to qualify for free shipping.

15. Save on shipping using the Kohl’s kiosk

If you can’t find what you need in-store, check the Kohl’s kiosk in store. If you order the product from the kiosk, you automatically get free shipping to your home or even to someone else’s home if you’re sending a gift.

Use this option when shipping gifts to relatives and friends and automatically save on shipping. 

16. Get your senior discount

Every Wednesday is Senior Discount Day at Kohl’s. Seniors over 60-years old save 15% on their purchase in-store only. You can stack teh 15% off deal with dollar-off coupons and Kohl’s cash or rewards, though.

17. Get your veterans discount

You may not combine it with any other percentage off coupons, though. More about Kohl’s veterans discount here.

Use the Kohl’s app to get deals on products you’re shopping in-store. Scan the barcode to see if there are any current promotions or coupons available. You don’t have to worry about finding coupons or locating your Kohl’s cash – it’s all stored in your Kohl’s wallet

Watch for Kohl’s mystery deals on Koopy and take advantage of the savings. You won’t know your savings until you scratch off your deal, but savings range from 20% – 40% off your entire purchase.

20. Ask for a coupon at the register

If you are a Kohl’s charge customer and shop during the Kohl’s Charge events, ask the cashier for a scratch off coupon. They typically have a stack available. You scratch off the savings at the register and automatically apply your coupon.

Even if it’s not a Kohl’s Charge event, it never hurts to ask if the cashier has any coupons handy, as many keep spare coupons for people like you.

21. Save $10 for going paperless

If you’re a Kohl’s charge customer, log into your account and ‘go paperless.’ You’ll receive a $10 coupon for doing your part. If you don’t receive your coupon, contact customer service through your Kohl’s Charge dashboard.

22. Avoid promo excluded merchandise

Kohl’s has a lengthy list of promo-excluded merchandise, but as long as you’re aware of the excluded brands/products, you can plan your shopping accordingly, maximizing your savings and deals.
