Let’s face it: it’s hard to find a reason not to love Kohl’s. Not only is it a great place to shop for virtually anything wearable — shoes, shirts, pants, jackets, and more — but a Kohl’s location can seemingly be found anywhere you look.
But what makes Kohl’s truly special is that it’s known to offer the Holy Grail of all coupons: the 40% off coupon code.
How does one secure this mythical deal? And how might you go about finding one right now? Let’s take a look at the three best places to find this and other great discounts from Kohl’s.
1. Check Our Kohl’s Deals
Here at DealCrunch.com, we go to great lengths to bring users the best coupons and promo codes available — and that includes big storewide discounts at retailers like Kohl’s. Our proprietary engine scours the Web hourly for the latest deals, and our editors monitor our Kohl’s page and other pages to ensure they’re stacked with every available deal.
Long story short, though it is rare to find a Kohl’s 40% off coupon code, the first place you should check for it is on our list of Kohl’s storewide deals.
Here are the current storewide deals for Kohl's, updated hourly:
If there isn’t a 40% off code available at the moment, here are some secondary options you’ll want to try.
2. Try the Kohl’s Homepage
While we get our fair share of exclusive deals, sometimes retailers like Kohl’s don’t allow us to publish certain promotions they are running. When that happens, Kohl’s will often post the offer (including 40% off codes) on its homepage. You can check for current promotions at Kohls.com. If not on the homepage, then try the designated Kohl’s Deals page.
If after checking our site and the Kohl’s homepage you still haven’t found a viable code, you may be out of luck. There’s a good chance that there just isn’t one available at the moment. Don’t worry, though, I’m about to walk you through how to be the first to know when the next 40% off deal takes place.
3. Sign Up for Kohl’s Sales Alerts
As is the case with many retailers, Kohl’s promotions come and go very quickly. To hear from Kohl’s about the newest items and latest sales — including when the next 40% off code will come available — you can subscribe to the Kohl’s email newsletter. It’s as easy as entering in your email address and clicking “Add to List.”
Once you sign up, you probably won’t get a big discount offer right away, but be patient, and the sale you’re waiting for (40% off storewide, in this case) will eventually hit your inbox. Just note that only U.S. residents are eligible for these special email offers.
Keep an Eye on Your Inbox for a “Mystery Offer”
Once you sign up, you’ll start noticing Mystery Offers in your inbox every few months. As you go about sorting your daily emails, keep your eyes peeled for an email titled “40%, 30%, or 20% off? Today’s Mystery Offer is here!” in your inbox.
When you open this email from Kohl’s, you’ll find the coupon code at the bottom of the page. The code could be for anywhere from 20% to 40% off. The code’s exact value will remain a mystery until you redeem it at checkout. (That’s why it’s called a Mystery Offer.)
Redeem Your Kohl’s Mystery Offer at Checkout
Once you have your coupon code in hand, go to Kohls.com or any Kohl’s location, shop away, and head to checkout to get your savings.
For online shoppers, using the coupon code is simple. When you’re on the “Shipping Information” page, look for the “Kohl’s Cash & Promos” link and click on it. Enter your code into the empty field, and then press “Apply.” Once the code is validated, you’ll see if you received 20%, 30%, or 40% off your order– just like that!
If you’re happy with this deal, finish making your purchase and revel in your bonus discounts.
The Mystery Offer is just one of the exclusive perks of getting Kohl’s email newsletters in your inbox, so sign up today to get surprise discounts — including 40% off — throughout the year.
With 40% Off in Hand, It’s Time to Shop!
If you are one of the lucky few who’ve found a 40% off deal at Kohl’s, it’s time to stop reading and start shopping. These deals don’t last long, so you’ll want to use the 40% off code while it’s still valid.
Keep in mind, Kohl’s codes often can be used in conjunction with other sales and discounts, like these deals on our Kohl’s page. If saving a lot of money is your thing — and why wouldn’t it be? — stacking 40% off on top of another deal is as good as it gets.
And that’s just another reason to love Kohl’s.
