Kohl's is among some of the top nationwide department retailers to shop at during your holiday shopping excursions. We're heading fast into November, which is an exciting time of the year as the holidays have just begun! Throughout this post, Kohl's followers will find information past Kohl's holiday retail strategy, deal forecasts on the retailer's busiest shopping days, and various ways to save through their stackable coupons and app deals.

Stack Up to 4 Kohl’s Coupons Online

The DealsPlus staff previously wrote a guide to stacking up to 4 Kohl's coupons, which can be found here. For new shoppers, here's why Kohl's is about to become your new favorite department store.

Kohl's will allow a maximum of 4 promo codes to be applied to your Kohls.com purchase and this will be available to all online shoppers. For those purchasing from Kohl's mobile app, however, you will be limited to 2 promo codes.


Here's how you can stack up to 4 Kohl's coupon codes:


Kohl's Customer Service 

  • Department-specific dollar-off or percent-off promo codes can be applied to qualifying items (i.e. extra 15% off baby and kids' or extra 20% off men's apparel)
  • Dollar-coupon coupons (Kohl's Cash and Rewards Cash) can be applied to subtotal
  • All shoppers may use one sitewide percent-off discount code to your purchase (i.e. extra 20% off sitewide code)

How it works is that you can use more than one department- specific or dollar-off coupon, BUT you may only use one sitewide percent-off discount code. Here is an example of stacking 4 codes at Kohls.com:

  1. Extra 15% Off Sitewide Code (sitewide discount)
  2. Extra 15% Off Men's Apparel Code (department-specific)
  3. Extra 15% Off Babies and Kids' Apparel Code (department-specific)
  4. Kohl's Cash Dollar-Off Coupon (or you can stack another department-specific code like extra 20% off bedding and home)


Kohl's Mobile App & Kohl's Pay

Apple App Store

Nearly every retailer has their own mobile app but Kohl's is the first department retailer to launch their own payment app. Kohl's mobile app is among one of the fastest-growing apps on the market right now and far surpass well-known apps like Tinder and Nike.

With the launch of Kohl's Pay, shoppers can now easily store coupons, Yes2You Rewards, Kohl's gift cards, Kohl's Charge card information, Kohl's Cash, and much more in one central location. With Kohl's Pay handling all major discounts and details that you typically need to check out, there's no need to rummage through your purse or wallet anymore - simply bring up your Kohl's Pay QR code and scan it at the register. Moreover, the Kohl's app has a unique store mode feature that will help make your shopping experience easier in two simple ways:

  • Enables in-store shoppers to search your local store for in-stock inventory
  • Enables in-store shoppers to access all in-store deals that are applicable to your purchase (i.e. Kohl's Cash and coupon discounts)

That's a surefire way get through the line faster this busy holiday season. Download the Kohl's app and set up your rewards and card information now!

What to Expect: Kohl's Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2016

In the past two years, Kohl's typically releases their Black Friday ad on the first week of November so we can expect this year's ad release date to fall between November 4th through 9th. However, each year the ad has been released at an earlier date than the previous year, so it is possible that it will appear in the first few days of November as well.

One huge purchase bonus to look for is Kohl's $15 for every $50 spent Kohl's Cash offer, which generally launches early in the week of Thanksgiving and Black Friday. If you have plans for a large holiday haul at Kohl's, definitely keep your eyes peeled for this offer and start racking up those Kohl's Cash rewards!

Following the same holiday sale roadmap as the previous year, we can anticipate another Kohl's Black Friday preview sale to beginning early on the second week of November. Their pre-Black Friday offers will give shoppers a look into Black Friday prices with money-saving Kohl's coupon available to stack on top of discounted prices. You can take a look at Kohl's Black Friday 2017 ad here.

Macy's recently announced that they will be opening doors an hour earlier on Thanksgiving this year, a push to ramp up more sales from eager holiday shoppers no doubt. We expect department competitors will also make plans to open earlier in the afternoon between 3 to 6 p.m. but no later on Thanksgiving Day. Kohl's opened at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving last year and stayed opened for 30 hours straight, with Black Friday deals available online as early as Monday, November 20, 2016. We can expect this year's Black Friday sale to follow the same schedule for both in-store and online Black Friday deals.

Although hundreds of Black Friday deals will be available online, retailers this year will cater to both in-store and online shoppers by hosting in-store only and web exclusive doorbusters.

Last year's in-store doorbusters featured some top holiday tech deals and discounts on top toy brands, jewelry, gaming and more. Most doorbusters will be made available online but a select few hot ticket items are reserved for in-store shoppers only.

Shoppers can expect major discounts 20% to 75% off all departments with a select few items (usually one of the most popular products from each category) to be offered up as doorbusters.

If you still have a bit of your gift shopping list to get through, there's still Cyber Monday and Super Saturday! In 2015, in order to assist holiday shoppers with all their last-minute buys, Kohl's opened for 170 hours straight from December 17th 6 p.m. to 6 p.m. on December 24, 2015.

Those planning to shop on Cyber Week this year can expect more limited-time deals, exclusive Kohl's shopping pass for an extra 20% off or more and a lower free shipping threshold (they offered free shipping on $25 over Cyber Week 2016). Super Saturday will have its own host of deals that rival Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices as retailers deal last round of their best holiday offers for the year. We were able to find 60% off outerwear, over 50% off toy deals, $10 pajama sets, and much more deals last year so suffice to say, most shoppers won't have to worry about missing out on their Thanksgiving dinner with so many sales spread out across the holiday season.


Keep your eyes on these major shopping dates this year:

  • Thanksgiving Sales - typically starts early November
  • Black Friday - November 24, 2017
  • Cyber Monday/Week - November 27. 2017 (Cyber Days deals start online on November 25, 2017)
  • Free Shipping Day - December 15, 2017
  • Green Monday - December 11, 2017
  • Super Saturday - December 23, 2017

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.
