Use Kohl’s Cash and Save Big!
I post a lot of Kohl’s deals on here, especially during the holidays. One of the reasons I do this is because of the Kohl’s Cash. I use Kohl’s Cash a lot during the holidays and it helps save me a nice chunk of change on gifts and other holiday purchases.
So, I figured that I’d do a quick post on Kohl’s Cash and how to use Kohl’s Cash to save money.
What is Kohl’s Cash?
Kohl’s Cash is basically a coupon for store credit at a brick-and -mortar Kohl’s store or online at Kohls.com. You can use Kohl’s Cash for nearly everything, including sale and clearance items. You can’t use Kohl’s Cash for Kohl’s Cares® cause purchases or other charitable purchases, Kohl’s Charge payments, prior purchase adjustments, or to purchase gift cards, however.
How Do I Get Kohl’s Cash?
You get Kohl’s Cash when you make purchases, either online or in stores, during promotional periods. Generally, you’ll receive $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend in a single transaction. For instance, if you spend $50, you’ll receive $10 in Kohl’s Cash; if you spend $200, you’ll get $40 in Kohl’s Cash. Keep in mind, though, that you only earn Kohl’s Cash on your subtotal after any discounts and before taxes and shipping charges.
You’ll receive your Kohl’s Cash via email if you make qualifying purchases at a Kohl’s kiosk or online at Kohls.com. If you make a purchase in a Kohl’s store, you’ll receive paper Kohl’s Cash coupons.
What Kohl’s Cash Isn’t
Kohl’s Cash is not legal tender. You can only use Kohl’s Cash in Kohl’s stores on online at Kohls.com. Also, keep in mind that you most likely won’t be refunded cash for returns on any purchases you make with Kohl’s Cash. Most stores, however, will give you store credit.
When Can I Use Kohl’s Cash
Typically, you can only spend the Kohl’s Cash that you use during a specific redeeming period. Usually this redeeming period is the calendar week following your initial purchase. The redeeming period will be listed on your Kohl’s Cash from store purchase and in the email from online and kiosk Kohl’s Cash.
You can’t use Kohl’s Cash online that has already expired. However, you may have some luck in stores. It isn’t uncommon for stores to honor expired Kohl’s cash – simply ask a manager if they would consider redeeming it.
How Do I Use Kohl’s Cash Online?
You can use Kohl’s Cash online just as you can use it in stores. Simply enter the Kohl’s Cash coupon number, located under the barcode, and PIN number in the appropriate places at checkout. Keep in mind that when you use Kohl’s Cash online, it will be applied to your subtotal before any other discounts, like coupons.
I’ve found that I can save a great deal of money if I use Kohl’s Cash online for a few reasons. First of all, I can usually find great deals on Kohl’s on items that I would normally buy anyway. Between their frequent holiday sales and coupon codes, I usually make out like a bandit. I can then go back later to redeem my Kohl’s Cash on other awesome deals and pay nothing out of pocket.
Of course, the key here is to only buy items from Kohl’s that are on sale and that you would buy normally in order to maximize your savings. Afterall, you wouldn’t be saving much at all if you spent money just to get the Kohl’s Cash…
