7 Secrets to Shopping the Kohl's Black Friday Ad
While we're not quite there yet, Black Friday at Kohl's is one of my favorite sales of the year. And it's never too early to prep for the big event! Seriously – there are just so many good deals. But, you can spend a bundle if you're not sure how to really take advantage of the sales.
Here are a few awesome secrets to Black Friday shopping at Kohl's that can help you save BIG on the big day ~ let's get started?
1 . Know WHEN the Kohl's Black Friday Ad Comes Out
Every year we get a sneak peek of the Kohl's Black Friday Sale during the first week of November. By studying the HUGE ad (last year it was 64 pages!) early we can compare it to other stores and decide who will have the best prices.
Let's say you need a Christmas deal on the newest gaming system for instance (The Nintendo DS Light is huge this year!) Once the ad leaks – we'll be able to know the dates for the Kohl's Black Friday deals as well!
2 . Earn $15 Kohl's Cash on Black Friday
I love, love, LOVE Black Friday Kohl's Cash, because instead of the regular $10 per $50 purchase – we earn $15 for every $50 purchase!
And guys – DON'T FORGET!!! You'll also actually earn Kohl's Cash also on a $48 purchase! (Really. Check our post on How Does Kohl's Cash Work for more tips!)
Per the Kohl's FAQ:
If you make a purchase within $2 of the Kohl’s Cash® earned criteria, you will receive Kohl’s Cash®. For example, if you place an order of $48, we will round that purchase up to $50 and distribute $10 Kohl’s Cash®.
How cool is that?
***Don't forget to sign up for Yes2You Rewards as well – where you'll earn an extra $5 on every $100 spent 🙂
3. Prep for the Best Doorbusters!
Kohl's Doorbusters are usually valid in store and online at Kohls.com through 1 pm on the Friday after Thanksgiving. They are limited quantity items – so you'll want to Browse the Ad and make a mental note of what's top priority for you.
A few things we see each year in the Kohl's Black Friday ad:
- Big One towels and Pillows
These are usually $2.99 after coupon!
- Appliances – FREE – $4.99 after Rebate
Every year we see a deal come out to get free appliances once the rebate and Kohl's Cash are applied
- HOT Luggage Deal after Rebate
CRAZY good deals on luggage using sale + coupon code + Kohl's Cash and rebate
- Canon EOS Rebel
Kohl's usually has the LOWEST price for this camera due to Kohl's Cash and rebates coming into play
- Pyrex and Corningware – LOWEST Price All Year
If I weren't already stocked with Pyrex, I would buy a set EVERY YEAR at the Kohl's Black Friday sale!
- FitBit Deals
Some of the lowest prices around on the newest Fitbit!
- Imaginext and Little Tikes large toys for $19.99
Since we can't use coupon codes on Kohl's Toys – they have been going EXTRA cheap – plus you can still earn Kohl's Cash
- Instant Pot, Kitchenaid, Air Fryer and Ninja Foodi Deals
Major appliances on your Christmas list? Kohl's will have an AWESOME deal on these popular items along with some good rebates and Kohl's Cash rewards.
- Weighted Blanket Deals
Last year Kohl's has the BEST deal on a weighted blanket – and this year we're expecting to see some doorbusters as well…
- BIG Deals on TVs
Get ready to combine that $15 Kohl's Cash with some rock bottom doorbuster pricing!
4 . DON'T Buy Everything You Need on Black Friday
Since you'll be earning all that extra Kohl's Cash ($15 per $50 spent!) – save some of your purchases for after Black Friday. That way you can SPEND all that Kohl's Cash you earned on Christmas gifts!
5 . Kohls.com Usually Starts Black Friday on MONDAY
If you want to get your Black Friday shopping done BEFORE the craziness begins? Shop the Kohl's Black Friday Ad ONLINE!
Kohls.com always starts their Black Friday Sale hours on the Monday before Thanksgiving – and all the doorbusters will be live at 12:01 am on Thanksgiving Day for online shoppers. So you'll not only not have to leave your house and enter the craziness of Black Friday store shoppers – you'll also get the best deals earlier 🙂
6 . FREE Kitchen Appliances!
Every Black Friday Kohl's wows us with some crazy deals on Kitchen Appliances. Normally we see a selection of appliances for $4.99 each after Rebate. Here's the fun deal scenario we usually end up posting:
Buy (3) Toastmaster Kitchen Appliances for $16.99 each = $50.97
– Get back $15 in Kohl's Cash for spending above $50
– Send in for (3) $12 Rebates
Like paying NOTHING for all three appliances!!
Guys – that's insane right??
Please note, this Toastmaster rebate doesn't start until Nov. 24 – so we early online shoppers will just have to sit on our hands until then 🙂
7 . Stack Kohl's Black Friday Coupons, Cash and Rebates
There will be a few coupons and rewards that you can stack during the Kohl's Black Friday Sale – and we already know a couple of them:
- We ALWAYS get a 15% OFF Coupon (usually around page 3 of the ad)
- We'll earn $15 Kohl's Cash on $50 Purchase
- We ALWAYS have some rebate offers (like the appliances mentioned above)
You can stack all these ways to save to come out with BIGGEST savings possible!
⭐8 . BONUS TIP! Kohl's Coupons Won't Work on Toys, or THESE Items
The 15% OFF won't work on toys this year – or these select clothing and appliance brands. Here are the items that are typically excluded from promo codes at Kohl's:
- Under Armour
These are the best items to buy with your Kohl's Cash that you earned on Black Friday!
⭐9 . BONUS TIP! Swing by your local drug store or grocery stores BEFORE you shop Kohl's
Watch the drugstores and grocery stores in the coming weeks for special gift card offers. For instance, this week at Walgreens you can get a FREE $10 Walgreens Gift Card when you purchase (2) Kohls (or other) gift cards. That's an easy way to earn a freebie when you know you'll be spending money at Kohl's come Black Friday.
