If you are a Kohl’s shopper you already know about their great sales, but did you know there are more secret ways to save at Kohl’s and Kohls.com? Here are some money-saving tips for this back-to-school season.
1 - Shop the 2nd and 4th Friday or Saturday of the Month
Kohl’s hosts “Night Owls” and “Early Birds” sales event on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. This is the time you’ll see an additional 10- 50% off the already rock-bottom prices. Plus, these events typically coincide with Kohl’s Cash offers.
2 - Shop Online and Stack Discount Codes
Not only is shopping online at Kohls.com convenient, Kohl’s shoppers have the benefit of combining up to four discount codes on one transaction when you shop from a computer. Mobile customers can enter two codes per order.
3 - No Hassle Returns
Did you know that Kohl’s has no time restrictions for returns? You can get cash back for up to 12 months after purchase and after that you will receive in-store credit. No receipt is needed for Kohl’s charge purchases. If you use any credit card to make purchases, your shopping history will be stored in their computer for a year.
4 - Price Adjustments
It happens to us all. We make a purchase only to discover the following week the item went on sale. Kohl’s will adjust the price down to the sale price for up to two weeks. Just hang onto your receipt, present it to customer service to receive the difference in price. The price adjustment is also available for Kohls.com orders by calling (855) 564-5705.
5 - Kohl’s Honors Competitor’s Prices
Find a lower advertised price? For in-store shoppers only, Kohl’s will honor competitor prices from any national retailers that have a brick and mortar store, such as Target and Walmart. Just bring a current copy of the competitor’s ad with you (make sure the ad includes a description of the item).
6 - Join the FREE Yes2You Rewards Program
If you shop much at Kohl’s this one is a must. New members receive a $5 Kohl’s certificate just for signing up. Plus, you’ll receive 5% back on every order of $100. And, Yes2You Rewards members often receive birthday coupons and other rewards. Yes2You Rewards are issued once a month and can be used with any unexpired Kohl’s Cash.
7 - Learn to Decode the LCD Price Signs
If you’re questioning if an item will drop even further in price look for a special code in the upper-right corner of the LCD price tag signs that are found on the product racks. A square indicates that the item has reached the lowest price. Other codes you might see are “GV” - limited-time price drop, “S” - part of a one- or two-week sale. If you see an “NM” it means the item will be marked down that night or the following morning.
8 - Shop Online at the Kiosk to get FREE Shipping
Kohl’s website has more variety of sizes and items than in the store, and orders placed from any Kohl’s kiosk will automatically ship to your home for free. Also, if you’re shopping at home, check for any available free in-store pick up.
9 - Apply for a Kohl’s Charge Card
Every 4 to 6 weeks, Kohl’s offers 30% off and free shipping to cardholders. Also, cardholders that spend at least $601 a year will automatically become MVC (Most Valuable Customer) members and will get special discounts throughout the year.
10 - Make Payments Immediately After Purchase
Instead of carrying a balance, avoid any interest charges by paying for your purchase directly after using your card. You can also make payments at the in-store kiosks. Online payments are equally as convenient.
