Do you shop at Kohl's on a regular basis? If so, then you should definitely read this guide, and if not, you might want to start! There are literally dozens of different ways to save at this nationwide U.S. department store, and we're sharing the best ones with you.
If you have ever even visited Kohls.com, you've probably heard of Kohl's Cash. It's basically store credit, and earn it by spending up $48 (which equals $10 in Kohl's Cash, and on up from there) during specific time periods. You can spend it anytime though, but be careful - it does expire.
Yes2You is the Kohl's loyalty program that gives you one point for every dollar you spend, once you earn 100 points, you get five dollars in Kohl's Cash.
Regular Kohl's shoppers might want to get a Kohl's credit card, if only for the exclusive cardholder coupons and other benefits which can save you around 20% per purchase if you use them wisely.
Kohl's lets you stack codes and deals in nearly every case, so savvy shoppers can score incredible deals, especially online. You can stack four different kinds of coupon codes in a single order, and they are:
- Percentage Off
- Dollar Amount Off
- Kohls Rewards
- Free Shipping
You can see how things can really add up!
While the app conveniently lets you shop anywhere, if you open it while on Kohl's in-store WiFi you'll get coupons for amounts like $5 off $25 to $10 off $30, plus ten extra Yes2Yes points.
Shop between 3:00pm on Friday through 1:00pm on Saturday and claim Power Hour discounts ranging from 10 to 25% off throughout the store.
You can even use all the discount codes and Kohl's Cash on clearance (while you're earning Yes2You points, of course). Several times a year, Kohl's runs its Gold Star Clearance events, where you can get up to 70% off - and still use all your other discount codes and earn points.
