How does Kohl's Cash Work?

A well-loved American department store, Kohl’s is a go-to for everything from clothing and accessories to kitchen appliances and home decor. Thanks to Kohl’s Cash, you can actually earn back money to spend at the store later — which is compounded by signing up for the Kohl’s Reward Program.

Kohl's Cash Process

What is Kohl’s Cash?

Kohl’s Cash comes in the form of paper or digital coupons, which you can easily apply to your next in-store or online purchase. Customers earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 they spend in-store during Kohl’s Cash earn periods. We’ll dive into the nitty-gritty details below.

What are Kohl’s Rewards?

While every shopper will earn Kohl’s Cash by shopping during earn periods, you can score even more Cash by signing up for Kohl’s Rewards. Previously known as Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards, this program enables customers to earn 5% back in Kohl’s Cash on every single purchase they make, every day.

Today’s Kohl’s Rewards program launched in September 2020, and also includes access to special, limited-time-only offers open exclusively to members. Kohl’s Cash earned as part of the Kohl’s Rewards program will be issued in $5 increments on the first day of each month.

How do you earn Kohl’s Cash?

Earning Kohl’s Cash is easy!

  • For non-Rewards members, Kohl’s Cash is earned simply by shopping at Kohl’s during designated Kohl’s Cash earn periods. You’ll earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent.
  • For Rewards members, Kohl’s Cash is earned on every single Kohl’s purchase; you’ll earn back 5% of every dollar spent, which will be issued in $5 increments. Don’t worry, you’re eligible to earn Kohl’s Cash during Kohl’s Cash earn periods, too!

How do I receive Kohl’s Cash?

When making purchases in-store, Kohl’s Cash will be received as paper coupons (which also include codes that you can use during online purchases in the future). If you shop online or at a kiosk, you’ll receive your Kohl’s Cash in an email.

Can you claim Kohl’s Rewards after purchase?

What if I need to return something that earned Kohl’s Cash

If you return an item whose purchase earned Kohl’s Cash, a refund will be issued in your original form of payment and the value of your Kohl’s Cash will be decreased.

Can you use expired Kohl’s cash?

Generally speaking, once Kohl’s Cash is expired, it is not redeemable. That said, Kohl’s does offer a 10-day grace period to use Kohl’s Cash in-store, and you may also be able to apply expired Kohl’s Cash to your online purchase by calling customer service.

Can you combine Kohl’s Cash and Kohl’s Coupons?

Kohl’s Cash can be redeemed with other Kohl’s coupons and offers — but stacking Kohl’s coupons does come with caveats. Kohl’s Cash discounts are taken after department-specific discounts, but before the single allowed sitewide discount. Also, you can only redeem up to six Kohl’s Cash coupons per transaction.

What is the Difference Between Yes2You and Kohl’s Cash?

Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards Program is no longer an active program — as of September 2020, it’s been replaced by the Kohl’s Rewards Program, a more straightforward way to earn rewards for shopping with Kohls.

Kohl’s Rewards is distinct from Kohl’s Cash: Kohl’s Cash refers to the actual coupons or discount codes earned, while the Kohl’s Rewards Program is a way to earn more of them.

Are my Yes2You rewards still valid?

Yes! If you were a member of the Yes2You Rewards Program, you will be automatically transitioned to the new Rewards program and your existing points will be automatically converted.

When is the next Kohl’s cash promotion?

While you can earn Kohl’s Cash every day if you’re a Kohl’s Rewards member, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the Kohl’s Coupons page for the latest offers, deals and sales. Kohl’s offers limited-time promotions that can help you earn even more Kohl’s Cash and score other discounts on your purchases. We’ve also got all the details on the Kohl’s sales calendar right here!
