If you are a Kohl’s shopper, you know that Kohl’s often puts out “Kohl’s Cash” offers. Generally, the way they work is that during certain periods of the year you can earn Kohl’s Cash for a certain dollar amount you purchase. For instance, you may earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend. You can then redeem the Kohl’s Cash during a different, designated time. The Cash can be used on virtually anything in the store or online. If you have $10 in Kohl’s Cash, your purchase needs to be $10 or more to redeem it.
As I often write about Kohl’s here at the blog, I thought it would be a fun idea to share some ideas for how you can maximize your Kohl’s Cash, when you have it! Here are some general tips I have for you:
- Don’t forget to redeem it. Obviously, this is a “use it or lose it” situation. Create a reminder for yourself to redeem it by the deadline!
- Combine it with sales or discounts to stretch it further. Like any coupon, I like combining Kohl’s Cash with sales or discounts to make those dollars go further.
- Try not to think of it as “free” money. It can be easy to be frivolous with Kohl’s Cash, but my advice is to use it only on items you’d have used real cash to purchase. This is going to help you make good decisions.
- Budget carefully. If you don’t pay attention, using that $10 Kohl’s Cash can turn into additional purchases you’d not planned on.
With that, let me show you what I spotted at my Kohl’s store this morning that would be good options for $10 in Kohl’s Cash. Then, I’ll share what I ended up purchasing.
Of course, bonus if you have Kohl’s Cash to redeem during a clearance event! I found lots of clothing well under $10. You may need to bring a calculator as additional discounts may drop the price lower.
How about some new sunglasses? These would be $3.60 after Kohl’s Cash.
I purchased a 6-pack of dish towels for $7.99 (reg. $24.99) and one of the wax melts for $2.99 (reg. $5.99). After the Kohl’s Cash, I paid $1.07! My total savings was $30! I’m so happy with how I did.
