I remember when I started shopping at Kohl’s. Ok I don’t remember the exact date but I remember having a conversation with my sister and she said Kohl’s was her favorite place to shop. Not caring to shop at the malls if I can avoid it I decided to give Kohl’s a try. The first thing I noticed was every where you looked something was on sale. Then I found out if you shop during certain times you earn Kohl’s cash, which is basically free spending money. Not too soon after I began shopping their I opened my ONLY retail charge card due to all the discounts you get as a credit card customer.
So it was no surprise to me when Kohl’s found another way to give back to it’s customers with the Yes2You Rewards program. The Yes2You program is a free loyalty program that rewards you with each dollar you spend. Each $1 earns you 1 point. When you receive 100 points you will receive a $5 cash reward. So last weekend Honey and I spent some time at our favorite store to see how the program worked. We were armed with a $250 gift card, no purchases in mind, and time on our hands.
Turns out they were having early bird discounts, which is another way Kohl’s rewards it’s customers. We shopped for about two hours working our way from toys and girls clothing to woman’s and men’s. We tried on lots of clothes and debated on purchasing lots of things. In the end we left with a basket full of goodies for just about everyone. As usual Honey made out the best with quite a few things like this Arctic Lamp, some tank tops, and some new Monster High dolls. Since there were Christmas decorations already up we picked up our new one for the year, our favorite character a Minion!
The boys and I got some new shirts and we picked up a few smaller items and headed to the counter. I had just signed up for the Yes2You rewards so I printed off my rewards card until mine arrives in the mail. This really wasn’t even necessary because you can access your Yes2You Rewards card right in the Kohl’s app if you have it downloaded to your phone. I still like to bring the paper along just in case my phone dies before I get to the counter. Along with our Yes2You rewards we also had a 15% off discount. We showed our card, paid, and even received $30 Kohl’s Cash Rewards to use on our next visit.
Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards Program
I gave it a week and logged back into my account on my smartphone and sure enough all my points were there. I even have received one $5 reward which means we have $35 to spend on our next visit. I was able to scan in my Kohl’s Cash as well as my Yes2You reward so that all my savings are right there in my phone and easy to use. As you can see I have 247 points left (which I assume will result in some additional $5 soon) and my discounts right at my finger tips. It is also easy to see when each discount expires so I make sure I use it.
Kohl’s really knows how to keep their customers coming back. I recently received a 20% friends and family discount in the mail that can be used between 10/9-10/13. Since my Kohl’s Cash will be expiring on 10/12 you can count on Honey and I visiting this Saturday for a little more shopping fun!
