• Kohl’s Black Friday Sale: 6 Genius Shopping Hacks (2016 Survival Guide)


    Kohl’s Black Friday Shopping Hacks

    Kohl’s wants your holiday shopping and they want it bad! They’re going through great lengths to offer fantastic Black Friday deals on everything from toys to home goods to kitchen appliances and more!

    Although Kohl’s typically doesn’t have the best Black Friday deals on large electronics, such as televisions and laptops, it can be a GOLD MINE for kitchen appliances (especially KitchenAid mixers) and toys.

    Here are some easy tips to get the best Kohls Black Friday sale deals:

    1. It’s really a week (or more).

    The first thing to know about Kohl’s Black Friday shopping is that it’s actually more like a week’s worth of shopping…or more. Sure, Kohl’s has a Black Friday ad and some great Black Friday deals. However, starting on Black Friday and running all the way through the holidays, Kohl’s offers consistently fantastic promotions, coupon codes, rebates and so much more. You can definitely go into a Kohl’s store near you on Black Friday to get deals. But you’ll save time and just as much (if not MORE) money by shopping online during the first week of promotions. Save your actual Black Friday shopping for stores that you have to go into to get the deals, and enjoy Kohl’s shopping from home.

    2. You’re going to want a Kohl’s card.

    I am the first person to almost never recommend someone get a credit card, especially a store credit card. Typically, interest rates and fees on these tend to be higher. However, if you can stick to your budget and stay disciplined in paying it off before it has a chance to accrue interest, it’s definitely worth getting a Kohl’s card.

    Kohl’s cardholders get exclusive coupons to use, oftentimes 30% off or more. In addition to this, they also score FREE shipping with lower (or no) premium purchase threshold. Knocking 30% off a seasonal sales price and then also saving on the shipping cost can really add up to some intense savings.

    3. Understand how to stack coupons.

    Did you know you can stack up to FOUR Kohl’s coupon per purchase? That’s an insane amount of savings! You can use:

    • A storewide coupon (Ie, 30% of your entire purchase)
    • A department coupon (ie, $10 off $50 home department purchase)
    • Kohl’s Cash or YestoYou Rewards (up to four of these per purchase)
    • A free shipping code

    Dollar-off coupons are deducted before percentage-off coupons. Kohl’s Cash and YestoYou Rewards are taken off after all discounts, like a gift card. If the free shipping code has a threshold (ie, free shipping on your $25 purchase), the threshold must be met after all other coupons have been applied.

    Knowing these tips, you can combine coupons with seasonal sale prices to score rock bottom deals.

    4. Earn and redeem Kohl’s Cash.

    Periodically throughout the holidays, Kohl’s cycles between promotions where you are earning Kohl’s Cash and periods of time when you’re able to redeem Kohl’s Cash. There are even special promotions where you’ll earn a higher amount of Kohl’s Cash than normal! In 2015, Kohl’s ran a holiday promotion where you earn $15 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent (regularly, it’s $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent). Kohl’s Cash spends like (you guessed it) CASH at Kohl’s, so earning it to redeem during a later seasonal promotion is a great way to keep your overall out-of-pocket very low.

    5. Pay attention to rebates.

    Throughout the year but especially during the holidays, Kohl’s offers mail-in-rebates on tons of items. Last year, I scored a Sonicare toothbrush that had a $20 rebate attached. Totally awesome! Rebates stack with coupons and Kohl’s Cash, so it’s yet another way to save big on holiday items.
