If you’re planning ahead for Kohl’s Black Friday 2022, then you’ll definitely want to start here. I’ll tell you everything you need to know to master Kohl’s sales and Black Friday deals.

I’ve studied and tracked Kohl’s Black Friday sale data for the past four years, and history has a lot to teach us when we’re looking to score the best deals.

Here’s a quick and dirty rundown to whet your appetite before we get into the real good stuff:

Below I’ve compiled all the essential info you need to know, like , how to use Kohl’s Cash to maximize your savings, as well as the best Kohl’s Black Friday deals I saw in 2021.

Bookmark this page, and I’ll update it with the best Kohl’s Black Friday deals of 2022 as soon as they’re live. You can also text BLACKFRIDAY to 57299 and receive real-time text alerts when Black Friday deals go live.

 

1. Expect Kohl’s Black Friday 2022 to start in early November, then pick up again during Thanksgiving week.

The Kohl’s Black Friday ad will drop in late October most likely. Kohl’s loves to get a jump on the holiday. You may have mixed feelings about that, but Kohl’s has offered Black Friday savings in early November for the past few years.

During Kohl’s Black Friday 2021, I saw Kohl’s split their Black Friday sales into two separate events. The first Kohl’s early Black Friday sale ran from Nov. 5 – 7, and then Kohl’s ran a weeklong Black Friday event during the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 21 – 26). The later sale featured the best deals.

 

2. Shop Kohl’s Black Friday 2022 online on Thanksgiving (stores are closed).

Wondering about Kohl’s Black Friday hours? Don’t plan on shopping in the store on Thanksgiving during Kohl’s Black Friday 2022, Kohl’s will be closed. But you can shop Kohls.com before, during, or after your turkey festivities, whatever suits your fancy. If you love going into the store, you can do it on Black Friday. If you hate going into the store, you don’t have to — all Kohl’s Black Friday deals are available online.

 

3. Kohl’s “Doorbusters” became Kohl’s “Super Deals” in 2021.

A screenshot of a Kohl's Black Friday ad for Super Deals from 2021.

Historically, “doorbusters” have been insanely hot deals that retailers offered only to people who stood in line at the store on Black Friday. The term has slowly evolved to mean simply “insanely hot deals.” (No store visit required in almost every case.)

In 2021, Kohl’s ditched the “Doorbuster” term and instead used “Super Deals.” Super Deals were available from midnight Central Time on Nov. 25 – 26 (Thanksgiving and Black Friday). I saw a lot of apparel deals like 80% off leggings, 75% off women’s boots, and 60% off men’s pajama pants, plus one really exciting ride-on toy deal: the LandRover Ride On was $149.99 (regularly $299.99). But unlike years past, the Super Deals weren’t necessarily Kohl’s very best Black Friday offerings.

 

 

4. In 2021, Kohl’s free shipping minimum increased to $75 (up from $25).

In past years, Kohl’s offered a lower free-shipping threshold during Black Friday. Usually, the free shipping minimum dropped to $25. But in 2021, you had to spend at least $75 during Black Friday to get free shipping.

If you have a smaller purchase, opt for free store pickup or curbside pickup instead.

 

5. Expect an extra 15% off using a promo code (in 2021, it was LETSGO15).

This promo code was available to use largely sitewide in 2021, but a few brands were excluded (like KitchenAid).

 

6. Get $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend during Black Friday week.

In 2021, from Nov. 21 – 26, you could get $15 in Kohl’s Cash every time you spent $50 during Kohl’s Black Friday week. It was an opportunity to really rack up Kohl’s Cash for other purchases in the future.

Typical Kohl’s Cash promotions see just $10 in Kohl’s Cash per $50 spent, but during Black Friday week, they up the reward to $15 in Kohl’s Cash. So a single big-ticket item like their KitchenAid 5-quart mixer and attachment bundle (regularly $479.99, $349.99 on sale will earn you $105 in Kohl’s Cash.

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 1 KitchenAid 5-Quart Artisan Series Fresh Prep Attachment Bundle, $349.99 sale price, $479.99 reg. price
  • Spend $50, receive $15 Kohl's Cash
Shipping: Free on orders of 75+ or free curbside pickup
Deal expires Jun 20, 2023
 

 

7. Spend your Black Friday Kohl’s Cash during Kohl’s Cyber Monday.

The Kohl’s Cash you earn on Thanksgiving and Black Friday won’t be usable until Cyber Monday. But good news? It’ll be usable on Cyber Monday! So unless you see a killer deal on something you’ve been eyeing for a while, wait to shop Kohl’s again until Cyber Monday when you can use your Kohl’s Cash.

Look for game consoles, cameras, or KitchenAid mixers during Black Friday. Then shop when your Kohl’s Cash is active to create your own sales on items that aren’t marked down as low.

When you consider the Kohl’s Cash you’re earning on top of Kohl’s Black Friday 2022 savings, it starts looking like Kohl’s could have the best prices on half the things on your list.

 

8. Kohl’s card holders get deeper discounts and rewards members get an exclusive offer.

If you’re a Kohl’s credit card holder, you can can absolutely use valid 15%, 20%, and 30% off coupons you receive every month during Black Friday. If you’re not a card member and want to be, you’ll get a code for 35% off when you sign up. Use this on your holiday shopping.

Not into the credit card thing? Join Kohl’s Rewards. It’s free and during Black Friday in 2021, there was a member exclusive offer: $10 off a $50 home purchase, good from Thursday, Nov. 11 through Saturday, Nov. 20. Plus, you’ll earn 5% back on every purchase you make.

 

9. Sign up for Kohl’s text and email list by mid-November for two 15% off coupons.

Make sure you’re on Kohl’s email list by mid-November. In years past, we’ve seen a “$5 off a $5 purchase” Black Friday coupon, plus a mystery coupon for Kohl’s Cyber Monday.

Here’s how to get two 15% off Kohl’s coupons:

Keep in mind that Kohl’s Cash is calculated on the price after coupons have been applied (but before tax is applied — thanks, Kohl’s). If your goal is to rack up as much Kohl’s Cash as possible, then save your coupons for the second trip (the one where you’re spending the Kohl’s Cash).

 

10. Use the Kohl’s app to find rebate deals and save up to 90%. You’ll get Kohl’s Cash, too!

Sometimes Kohl’s offers mail-in-rebate deals that you can stack on top of their Black Friday sales. These aren’t always available, but when they are, you stand to save loads of cash.

The easiest way to find these rebates is to download the Kohl’s app and type “rebates” into the search bar. The app will pull up all current rebates.

In 2021, I saw big savings on Toastmaster appliances, thanks to mail-in rebates.

Many kitchen appliances will be available for just a couple dollars after using the 15% off coupon and $12 mail-in rebate (regularly $24.99).

Be sure to check the limits for rebates, too. Usually there’s a limit of five of the same item per household, but sometimes it’s only two.

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 3 Toastmaster Small Appliances, $24.99 reg. price
  • For $10 off home orders of $50+ use code HOME10
  • For 15% off use code LETSGO15
  • Buy 3, submit for 3 $12 rebates
Shipping: Free on orders of 75+ or free curbside pickup
Pay $42.47, submit for three rebates

11. Use the Kohl’s Drive Up feature for free curbside and in-store pickup.

Either way, there’s no reason to pay for shipping at Kohl’s, because almost everything is available for in-store pickup, or even better, Kohl’s Drive Up.

To use Drive Up, all you’ll need to do is place your order and select “free store pickup” at checkout. You’ll then get an email that directs you to pull into a designated Drive Up parking spot when your order is ready. Tap “I’m here” and the rest of the work is done for you.

You may even earn extra Kohl’s Cash or a coupon for your next order, just for using store pickup.

 

12. Shop Fitbit at Kohl’s Black Friday, not Target.

Frequent readers know that I love shouting out Target RedCard deals. That remains true. But when you factor in Kohl’s Cash rewards, Kohl’s beats Target on Fitbit deals during Black Friday 2022.

In 2021, Kohl’s had the Versa 2, Versa 3, and Sense Advance on sale during Black Friday week, plus you could earn Kohl’s Cash.

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 1 Fitbit Versa 2 Smartwatch, $129.99 sale price, $179.99 reg. price
  • Spend $50, receive $15 Kohl's Cash
Shipping: Free on orders of 75+ or free curbside pickup
Deal expires Jun 20, 2023
That comes out to $28.46 saved for folks who bought their Fitbit from Kohl’s rather than Target.

 

 

13. Expect to save $128 on Shark vacuums during Black Friday 2022.

During Black Friday, Kohl’s notoriously discounts their upright Shark vacuums by 40% – 50% off the regular price. In 2021, I was able to stack coupons and boost my savings to 56%, which ultimately saved me $128, plus I earned $35 in Kohl’s Cash. Check it out:

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 1 Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe Upright Vacuum, $119.99 sale price, $229.99 reg. price
  • Spend $50, receive $15 Kohl's Cash
  • Spend $100, receive $5 Kohl's Rewards
  • For 15% off use code use code LETSGO15
Shipping: Free on orders of 75+ or free curbside pickup
Deal expires Jun 20, 2023
 

14. Save $0.60 per bath towel when you shop Kohl’s instead of Macy’s.

Towels are a great thing to buy at Kohl’s after you’ve already earned your Kohl’s Cash, and during Black Friday, they’re super cheap. Even better? In 2021, the day after Black Friday deals (Saturday), you could use a mystery code and potentially get them for even cheaper than Kohl’s Black Friday prices. Certainly cheaper than you could find at Macy’s.

In 2021 Kohl’s offered The Big One bath towels for $2.39 – $2.96, versus Macy’s Soft Spun towels that were on sale for $2.99 earlier in November.

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 1 The Big One Bath Towel, $3.99 sale price, $6.99 reg. price
  • Use unique mystery code for 20%, 30%, or 40% off
Shipping: Free on orders of 75+ or free curbside pickup
Deal expires Jun 20, 2023
 

15. But don’t buy bedding sets at Kohl’s — buy them at Macy’s instead.

A woman laying down on a bedding display at Macy's.

Macy’s Black Friday deals on multi-piece bedding sets really can’t be beat, not even by Kohl’s.

Both stores offered steep savings on bedding during Black Friday 2021, but Macy’s took the lead with 8-piece bedding sets in any size for $29.93.

ONLINE or In-Store Deal
Buy 1 8-Piece Comforter Set, $29.93+ sale price, $100.00 reg. price
Shipping: Free on orders of $25+
Deal expires Jun 20, 2023
The only exception to this would be if you have Kohl’s Cash to spend and can bring the price of Macy’s bedding down so it’s less than what Macy’s offers. Let your Kohl’s Cash be your guide.

 

16. Return your Amazon purchases to Kohl’s and earn $5 in Kohl’s Cash.

Remember this when you’re bringing returns to 8 million different stores: You can consolidate your Kohl’s and Amazon returns into one trip by bringing them all to Kohl’s. That means you can easily return your Kohl’s purchases just like always, and then also return Amazon items through a fairly simple process.

Start your return process through Amazon’s returns page, and select the Kohl’s drop-off option. From there you’ll be emailed a QR code, which Kohl’s will scan when you drop off your returns.

The best part? Return Amazon purchases at Kohl’s and you’ll receive $5 in Kohl’s Cash. Now this coupon will say that you can only use it in the store, but if you add it to your Kohl’s app wallet, you can apply it to any Kohls.com purchases too.

That is, unless you live in Anchorage, Alaska. Sorry, y’all. The Anchorage stores are the only Kohl’s locations that won’t honor this.
