Who among us doesn’t love a good coupon? (We’ll wait.) That’s why it’s even more exciting when a mystery offer pops up from one of our go-to stores. That’s right, we’re talking about the Kohl’s Mystery Coupon, which gets you a surprise discount of 20%, 30% or even 40% percent off!
The Kohl’s Mystery Coupon is truly a mystery since you won’t know when it will land in your inbox nor will you know which discount percentage applies until you check out. But there’s a catch — it’s good only for a one-time use that same day. The expiration window is tight, but well worth it.
We’ll break down the Kohl’s Mystery offer so you know exactly what it is and how to be prepared so when the elusive coupon comes your way, you’ll be ready to add items to your cart and save megabucks before it expires.
What Is the Kohl’s Mystery Coupon?
The Kohl’s Mystery Coupon is a special coupon offer from Kohl’s. From time to time, Kohl’s issues a coupon that’s valid for just one day and it always expires at midnight CST. The offer is either 20%, 30% or 40% off site wide. You can also use it in store by bringing in the barcode from your email.
When Will the Kohl’s Mystery Coupon Arrive?
Therein lies the mystery. It could be any day. While your guess is as good as ours, to share some intel, here are some recent dates on which our editors have received an offer: Sept. 26, Oct. 27, Nov. 14, Dec. 1, Feb. 21, March 20, April 16, May 15…
Is There a Catch?
It’s single-use only so you’ll need to be strategic and make sure to add everything you want to your cart. The last thing you want is to use it, realize you forgot something, especially a big-ticket item, only to realize when you add it to your cart that the mystery coupon is no longer valid.
We recommend doing your shopping ahead of time so you’re not in a time crunch — since you don’t know when the coupon will drop. You may be on a plane, at a baseball field, wherever, and need to check out prior to midnight.
So get ahead of it, start shopping now, just don’t complete the transaction. Peruse the categories, start saving them to your “Save for Later” list and voila! You’ll be all set when it’s go time.
How Can You Get the Kohl’s Mystery Offer?
You’ll need to sign up for the Kohl’s email list and be sure to change your settings so they don’t land in your junk folder. Keep an eye out for them because you won’t know when the Mystery Coupon will land in your inbox. On top of that, you won’t know what your discount is until it’s redeemed. It works like a scratch-off.
How to Redeem the Kohl’s Mystery Offer
When you get the golden ticket — er, mystery email — click through the email, shop on Kohls.com prior to the expiration and apply the promo code indicated in the email. That’s the precise moment your discount percentage will become known.
How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck
In addition to the Kohl’s Mystery coupon, there are even more ways to save at Kohl’s.
- Tap in to free shipping. You won’t pay shipping costs when you spend more than $50 and you won’t need to enter a site code. Kohl’s will automatically remove shipping costs when you reach the minimum spending threshold of $50.
- Remember to use your Kohl’s Cash for additional savings. (Essentially, it’s for customers who meet or exceed minimum purchase thresholds. For instance, spending $50 may yield $15 in Kohl’s cash during Kohl’s Cash events, then you can redeem the $15 coupon to reduce your next purchase. Although Kohl’s Cash does have an expiration date (you have 30 days to use it after you earn it). As long as it’s valid while you receive the Kohl’s Mystery offer, you’re good to go.
- Stack coupons. You can use up to four eligible coupons when checking out online, so when you combine the Kohl’s Mystery coupon with other coupons, just think of all the money you’re saving.
- Use Kohl’s free ship to store. By selecting the ship to store option, you’ll save on fees and simply drive to the store to pick up your items once you’re notified they’ve arrived.
