Kohls Amazon Returns
It's probably not news to anyone that you can now take care of your Amazon returns at your nearby Kohl's… but if you haven't done it yourself you may not know THIS fun tip!
Any time you make an Amazon Return at Kohl's – you'll receive an in-store coupon OR Kohl's Cash ~ and we have a fun tip to share with you!
Also, did you know that you can use EXPIRED Kohl's Cash in-store up to 10 days after the expiration date?? You won't be able to use it online after it's expired, but you can head in store and use it without any issues, so be sure not to throw it away! 😮
My friend Lori went to Kohl’s to return an Amazon purchase. She was given a $5 promotional gift along with her return confirmation receipt. Instead of buying something she didn’t need, she picked up a couple greeting cards & didn’t pay a penny!
I was there today & did the same thing – I brought home five 99¢ cards and spent $0.
According to the Kohl's rep we spoke to – here's how the Amazon Return rewards work…
It depends on the day of the week you make your return, and can vary by store:
- Sat – Monday – $5 Kohl's Cash (in store only, to use within 7 days)*
- Tues – Friday – 25% OFF coupon (in store only, to use within 7 days)*
*Select locations ~ offer type may vary by day and by store, and can be random
If you don't have a Kohl's Card and never get those sweet Kohl's 30% OFF codes – you know how exciting a 25% OFF coupon can be. That's a BIG discount compared to the normal 15 – 20% codes. (See all the current Kohl's Codes here)
This perk might not last forever – but it's fun while it does!
Why would Amazon have a fee for returns?
If you have a Kohl's or Whole Foods close to your home, you *may* end up with a $1 fee from Amazon if you try to issue a return through Amazon. That's just another reason to use Kohls for Amazon returns if you have one close to you!
How to Make Amazon Returns at Kohl's:
If you've never made returns to Kohl's before, here's how!
1. To make an Amazon return at Kohl's, start right over HERE at Amazon.
Begin your return process by clicking on the yellow button that says “return items”. (Tip: you can even return a gift you received from Amazon at Kohl's t00)!
Some items are NOT available for Kohl's Returns – so make sure it's eligible before making a trip to Kohl's.
2. Once you've chosen your item to return on Amazon, decide how you'd like your return processed.
You can choose to have Amazon put a credit back on your account, refund you your money, or even put the money they would normally return towards another item in your Amazon cart.
3. Select “Kohl's drop off” as your return option on Amazon.
You'll see on this page that you don't need to print anything off at all, simply head to Kohl's with your Amazon free return and easily return your item at Kohl's.
NOTE – You can also return Amazon purchases at Whole Foods, but you will not get any special coupon after making your return. Which means it's definitely better to do Kohl's Amazon returns!
4. On your smartphone, Amazon will email you a return shipping code.
If you have a smartphone, take the QR code that Amazon sends you by email to your local Kohl's along with your return. Kohl's will package, label, and ship your return for you.
If you don't have a smartphone, you can print out your label and take the return to Kohl's to let them send back for you too.
5. Go to the customer service department at your local Kohl's.
Typically Kohl's returns are accepted in the in the customer service department, almost always in the back of the store. However, during the holidays Kohl's will occasionally move their returns section to the front of the store to make returning items even easier during the busiest season of the year.
6. Receive a 25% OFF Coupon OR $5 OFF Coupon to use at Kohl's!
Such a fun perk!
TIP: Make your Kohl's Amazon returns early in the morning.
Typically Kohl's stores open throughout the week at 10AM every day – may vary by region (so if you can get up and out of bed early, you're going to save yourself a ton of time!)
Or, if you can't get up early, wait until an hour before closing time to make your returns.
Most Kohl's stores are open until 9PM on weeknights (they used to be open later, but have changed their hours ever since COVID-19).

So why on earth is Kohl's accepting free Amazon returns?
(And how do Kohl's Amazon Returns really benefit both retailers? That's what we've been wanting to know)!
Well, Kohl's is going to get more people in their Kohl's stores which is a huge bonus for them. And, Kohl's returns at Amazon helps shoppers like you and me feel a little more confident when we purchase from Amazon. This way we'll there's an easy way to return an item if we just don't love whatever we buy.
I love that now we can head into our local Kohl's store and return Amazon purchases easily, check out the latest Alexa Smart home device, and pick up any Kohl's deals all at the same time.
(This is a great way to take advantage of the Kohl's deals going on right now and skip on shipping fees too by picking up orders in store!)
It really is a great option for both retailers. Free returns for Amazon at Kohl's helps them get more people n the door (where we can snag the very best deals). And, it gives Amazon one more way to serve their loyal customers with excellence.
Is making an Amazon Return at Kohl's worth it?
Returning an item can be a hassle if you have to mail it back to Amazon. You'll need to re-pack your item, print your label, and head to your local UPS or USPS to return the item. (So simply walking into your local Kohl's store might be a great option for you.)
And, since Amazon only offers free return shipping only on certain items, returns at Kohl's ensures you won't pay anything to ship an item back to. If by any chance you order an item in error, taking advantage of free Amazon returns at Kohl's is a pretty great alternative to paying for postage on the return.
The only downside I see to Kohl's Amazon returns is that free Amazon returns might make you head to Kohl's for an extra trip (and be tempted by deals you don't really need . . . yikes)! 🙂
As long as you have a little self-control to skip extra deals you don't need, taking advantage of Amazon return locations can be a great option.
(And if you do end up at Kohl's and can't pass up a deal, be sure to take advantage of the Kohl's Mystery Coupon ~ they send 40% off coupons fairly regularly, which is such a great way to save at Kohl's!)
I'd love to hear your thoughts on returning Amazon purchases to Kohl's ~ do you take advantage of it?
