(Updated 10/21/19) In an effort to get shoppers into their stores, all Kohl’s locations will start accepting your Amazon returns come July of 2019. But wait…it gets even better. Keep reading to see how this news just might be a game changer if you’re a big Amazon shopper.
Do Items Need to Be In Original Box or Packaging?
Once you initiate the return via the Amazon site, you’ll be given the option to drop-off the item at your local Kohl’s.
Just bring it in and they’ll box it up appropriately and get it returned for FREE.
Do I Still Need to Print a Return Label at Home?
Again, surprisingly, NO.
All you have to do is drop off the item and they’ll print the return label for you and ship it.
Now that’s COOL.
Where Inside Kohl’s Do I Go?
There will be a specific desk in the back of the store (I’m guessing) where you take your return.
Check out the picture above as this is what it’ll look like.
The brain-trust at Kohl’s isn’t dumb as they’ll want you to walk through the entire store before getting to the Amazon returns desk.
They’re banking on you noticing a deal or two on your journey to the bowels of the store.
Do All Amazon Purchases Qualify?
Only items sold directly by Amazon, and not 3rd party sellers, qualify for returns at Kohl’s.
It will be interesting to see if more exclusions are added before the full roll-out in July. Things like size and weight of the item jump to mind immediately.
Do I Have To Be An Amazon Prime Member?
Nope, all Amazon shoppers qualify for this handy return service.
Is This a Full Roll-out in July?
All 1,150 Kohl’s stores will start accepting Amazon returns in July.
A specific date has not been announced yet.
Anything Else I Should Know?
You know I always have one more tidbit for ya.
Apparently Kohl’s is planning on designating specific parking spots close to the entrance for those making Amazon returns.
Since we will have to walk to the back of the store this will make the trek a little easier.
Ask the Reader: Will you use the Kohl’s return option or is more of a hassle than it’s worth?
