Kohl’s is known for offering various types of savings, but the amount of money you can expect to save there depends on how much you know.
Learning a few tricks to savvy shopping at the discount department store chain will boost your savings.
So, we’ve rounded up some of the most useful and least-known tips:
1. Remember the return policy
Kohl’s has one of the most flexible return policies. In fact, we cite it in “15 Stores With the Best Return Policies.”
Among the most noteworthy features of the policy is that there are generally no time restrictions for returns. One exception is premium-brand electronics, which have a 30-day return window.
You don’t need a receipt to return items, either. Having a receipt can help ensure that you receive a full refund and aren’t stuck with store credit, though.
Another handy feature of the policy is that you can return online purchases to your local Kohl’s store.
2. Know the ‘senior’ discount
Every Wednesday, Kohl’s stores offer a discount of 15 percent to customers who are at least 60 years old. You just need identification to claim the price break.
For more information about this and similar discounts, check out “10 Stores That Give Discounts to Shoppers Age 50 or Older.”
3. Stack discounts
Check the fine print on any discount before redeeming it.
Most types of discounts that you can redeem in a Kohl’s store — from the senior discount to copious coupon options to Kohl’s Cash — can often be combined with at least certain other types of discounts. (More on Kohl’s Cash on the next page.)
You can also “stack” online promo codes when shopping on Kohl’s website. That is, you can apply multiple promo codes to a single order. For more information about how this works, see Kohl’s “Using Multiple Coupons” webpage.
4. Get cash back online
If you shop online — whether at Kohl’s or elsewhere — be sure to go through a cash-back portal. Examples of this type of website include:
When you use a cash-back portal, you can receive money back on every purchase you make at retailers that partner with the cash-back portal. We detail how this process works in “3 Websites That Pay You for Shopping.”
