No receipt is needed for Kohl’s Charge purchases. If you use any credit card to make your purchases, your shopping history will be stored in their computer for a full year.

It happens to us all. We make a purchase only to discover the following week the item went on sale. Kohl’s will adjust the price down to the sale price for up to 2 weeks. Just hang on to your receipt, present it to customer service to receive the difference in price back. The price adjustment is also available for Kohls.com orders by calling (855) 564-5705.

Find a lower advertised price? For in-store shoppers only, Kohl’s will honor competitor prices from any national retailers that have a brick and mortar store, such as Target, Walmart, SEARS, Just bring a current copy of the competitor’s ad with you (make sure the ad includes a description of the item). Even sweeter you able to redeem Kohl’s Cash when price matching.

Special discount is not valid in conjunction with any other extra percent-off discounts. But can be used with dollar off coupons, Kohl's Cash and Yes2You rewards.
11& – Learn to Decode the LCD Price Signs:
If you’re questioning if an item will drop even further in price look for a special code in the upper-right corner of the LCD price tag signes that are found on the product racks. A square indicates that the item has reached the lowest price. It won’t drop further unless it goes on clearance. If you see an “NM” you might want to hold off on your purchase until the next day, “NM” (new markdown) means the item will be marked down that night or the following morning. Other codes you might see are “50” (50% off) “GV” (limited price drop), “S” (part of a 1 or 2-week sale).
12 – Shop online at the Kiosk to get FREE Shipping:
Kohl’s website has a lot more variety of sizes and items than they do in the store, and orders placed from any Kohl’s kiosk will automatically ship to your home for free. If there isn't a free shipping code available. These instore kiosks allow you to search inventory and locate the size and color you need on Kohls.com. Plus, you are still eligible to use any additional discount discount codes. Also, if you’re shopping at home, make sure to check for available free store pick-up.
13 – Apply for a Kohl’s Charge Card:
After being approved you'll get 25% to 30% off your entire purchase that day. Plus, every 4 to 6 weeks, Kohl’s offers 30% off and free shipping to Cardholders. This is time I like to do my online shopping. Also, cardholders that spend at least $601 a year will automatically become MVC (Most Valuable Customer) members and will get many additional special discounts throughout the year. Kohl's charge customers also are offered easy, no receipt returns and up to 12 special offers throughout the year.
14 – Make Your Payments Immediately after Purchase:
Instead of carrying a balance, avoid any interest charges by paying for your purchase directly after using your card. Kohl’s makes it super easy to make a payment on your Kohl’s card right after using it in-store or online. In-store you can make a payment at the register using cash, check, money order, or a Kohl’s Cares card. You can also make payments at the kiosks located around the store. Online payments are equally as convenient.
