Tips and Tricks to Save Money at Kohl's

Kohl's attracts customers by offering many ways to save and score deals. But navigating all the different coupons, promo codes, and loyalty programs can seem overwhelming. Below we've broken it down for you, along with some of our favorite items to buy – and not to buy – at Kohl's.

Tips for Getting the Best Deals at Kohl’s

  1. Sign up for emails.
    Kohl’s regularly sends loyal customers coupons with savings of up to 30% off any purchase. You’ll even sometimes get one-day promotional discounts with savings from 20-40% off your purchase at checkout. You can also sign up to have coupons sent to your home.

  2. Shop during Kohl’s cash promotions.
    If you’re a frequent Kohl’s customer, make sure you shop when the store offers Kohl’s cash. For every $50 spent, you’ll receive a $10 voucher to spend a few weeks later – and it comes with no minimum purchase. And you can usually stack Kohl’s cash with coupons.

  3. Use in-store kiosks to avoid shipping fees.
    If you have an online coupon code that isn’t valid in-store, but you don’t have enough items in your cart to reach the free shipping minimum, order your items through a store kiosk. You can still use your online codes, and more importantly, there is no shipping charge no matter how much you spend.

  4. Join Kohl’s rewards.
    This is another program for frequent Kohl’s shoppers. Sign up for free and you’ll receive 1 point for every dollar you spend. For every 100 points you earn, you’ll receive a $5 reward to spend at the store.

  5. Get sales alerts through your phone.
    You can sign up to receive sales alerts 5-7 times a month from Kohl’s so you won’t miss any deals. Plus, you’ll get a coupon for an extra 15% off your next online purchase when you sign up.

  6. Get cash back through savings programs.
    If you’re a frequent online Kohl’s shopper, consider signing up for other programs to earn cash back on your purchases. For instance, Chase credit card holders can earn 10 points per dollar spent through the Ultimate Rewards Mall.

When to Shop at Kohl’s

  • Weekend mornings.
    Most Kohl’s stores make new clearance markdowns on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, so if you’re looking to score some deals, head over in the morning before the racks get too picked through.

  • Flash promotions.
    When kicking off a sale, Kohl’s will often include Early Bird and Night Owl hours that offer additional discounts. Depending on your schedule, you can access these discounts online or in-store at the start of the sale, from 3 pm to closing for Night Owls or the next day from opening to 1 pm for the Early Birds. You can stay on top of these flash sales by signing up to receive emails from Kohl’s.

Best Things to Buy at Kohl’s

  1. Baby clothes.
    Not only does Kohl’s offer frequent sales on brands like Carters and aden + anais, it also often has a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase of baby items. Pair that with any other current coupons and promotions and you can easily walk away with discounts of 50% or more. And if you’re a few dollars shy of that $30 minimum, try using your coupon anyway – oftentimes the sales associate can work some magic to make it work.

  2. KitchenAid mixers and other small kitchen appliances.
    Keep an eye on advertised sales for KitchenAid mixers, Ninja blenders, Keurig machines, and other small kitchen appliances. Combining those sale savings with coupons, Kohl’s cash, and rebates, you can often get deals up to 40% off higher-end brands.

  3. Levi’s jeans.
    If you’re a Levi’s lover, look for frequent sales like buy one, get one half off. Then stack those coupons and promo codes for huge discounts. Recent sales allowed customers to pay less than $18 a pair for men’s Levi’s that originally retailed at $58.

  4. Juicy Couture.
    Juicy Couture fans will be pleased to find that the beloved brand is now sold at Kohl’s. Depending on what coupons and Kohl’s cash you have on hand, you can find pieces around 30% off when the brand is on sale.

What Not to Buy at Kohl’s

  1. Bedding and linens.
    You may be able to find a good deal on bedding at Kohl’s, but for a wider selection of brands and quality, first try a department store like Macy’s, where you’ll find frequent clearance events on higher-end brands like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.

  2. Shoes.
    Kohl’s does carry a variety of name-brand shoes like Converse, Crocs, and Nike, but you’re more likely to find clearance deals on the store’s website than in person. Be sure to compare prices to places like Amazon or brick-and-mortar shoe stores that will likely carry a wider selection.

  3. Electronics.
    Kohl’s website offers a fairly large assortment of computers, tablets, and even televisions, but don’t get too excited. Most brands are listed as exclusions for coupons, and prices remain on par with other online retailers.
