There are many different types of coupons that stores offer to customers. Kohl’s uses something called Kohl’s Cash. Does Kohl’s Cash confuse you? A quick review of how Kohl’s Cash works could help you be less confused and a lot more informed about this unique coupon policy.
A man who lived in San Jose, California, was very confused about how Kohl’s Cash worked. The way he calculated how his Kohl’s Cash would affect the total cost of his purchase, and the way the cashier’s register calculated it, didn’t match. The man felt that he ended up paying $6 more than he expected to.
He wasn’t the only Kohl’s customer who was confused by how Kohl’s Cash worked. There was a lawsuit filed about it. In June of 2015, Kohl’s agreed to settle a complaint that alleged that customers in Fresno, Riverside, and Shasta counties, in California, were charged more than prices advertised on store shelves and signs. The lawsuit also alleged that Kohl’s did not adequately disclose information about their Kohl’s Cash program.
The best way to keep up with the rules about Kohl’s Cash is to check the Kohl’s website before you shop at the store. Coupon policies can change, so it helps to make sure you understand it right before you shop.
Kohl’s Cash can be earned by customers who are shopping in Kohl’s stores. It can also be earned at the kiosks or online. Kohl’s Cash is offered during events that run periodically.
Kohl’s Cash is earned on the purchase amount after all applicable discounts are applied and before tax is applied. In short, you have to spend a certain dollar amount – after the coupons and other discounts are deducted from your purchase – in order to earn Kohl’s Cash. Spend less than that amount, and you do not qualify for Kohl’s Cash.
Customers will receive a $10 Kohl’s Cash Coupon for the first $50 in purchases. An additional $10 in value will be added to the coupon for each additional $50 spent in a single transaction. In short, if your total purchase amount (after the coupons and other discounts have been deducted) is $50, you will receive $10 in Kohl’s Cash. If you spend $100 (after the coupons and other discounts have been deducted), you end up with $20 in Kohl’s Cash.
The part that seems to have confused some people is in how the Kohl’s Cash is calculated into the transaction. Kohl’s Cash will be applied prior to percent-off total purchase discounts. Keep that in mind when you try and figure out how much you will save. You should also be aware that Kohl’s Cash has an expiration date on it – and cannot be used after that date has passed.
