What’s up with Kohl’s and their store charge cards?
They way Kohl’s sends out coupons and free store cash, I have a hard time understanding how in the world the company makes money, but obviously they must be. Considering the fact that they are one of the top retailers in the United States, those coupons and deals must be drawing in a ridiculous amount of customers (I know they get me into Kohl’s stores).
However, a lot of those deals, coupons and in-store cash are only obtainable if you have a Kohl’s Charge Card. Now, by no means do I see this as any kind of shrewd practice or anything, but it is a lot easier to spend more money at the store when you have a credit card to back up all of those clothes purchases. Beyond access to these deals, the store credit card available at Kohl’s works like any other in that they can only be used at their locations.
How can I apply for a Kohl’s Charge Card?
If you are a regular shopper at Kohl’s, you are probably familiar with their cashiers asking if you would like to apply for a Kohl’s credit card and, guess what, that’s one of the easier ways to apply for one of their cards. But, if it has just dawned on you that you would like to apply for a Kohl’s Charge Card, you can do so by going to Kohl’scredit application page.
