Kohl’s Price Match Policy: How to Make It Work For You

Updated July 12, 2024 by Kyle James

Asking for a price-match at big box stores makes sense, but at Kohl’s? I was today years old when I discovered that Kohl’s offers price matching too. However, with any policy, the Kohl’s price match policy comes with some large restrictions, rules, and exclusions. Here’s everything you need to know so you can take advantage.

Kohl's Price Match Policy: How to Make It Work For You So You Can Save

What’s the Kohl’s Price Match Policy?

The Kohl’s price match policy states that they’ll match a competitor’s in-store price, some online prices depending on the store, and will DEFINETLEY match Kohls.com pricing.

The item MUST be identical in all cases.

There are some rules to keep in mind when it comes to taking advantage of their price match policy.

Read on to learn more about any exclusions and policy rules.

How Many Days Do You Have to Get a Price Match?

14 days.

Kohl’s offers customers a price adjustment for up 2 weeks.

So if it’s a significant purchase, be sure to keep that receipt and check competing stores for a lower price.

Also, be sure to periodically check to see if Kohl’s dropped the price of the item and go get a price adjustment.

What Competitors Will They Price Match?

Any local competitor.

If you find a lower price from a store in your area, bring in the competitor’s ad for proof of the price and get a price match.

Keep in mind that Kohl’s has a long list of products and brands they will NOT price match.

Some of the more popular brands on the exclusions list include Calvin Klein, Nike, Adidas, Levi’s, and Vans.

Will They Price Match Online Stores?


I specifically asked a Kohl’s representative which online retailers they’ll price match and they gave me this list:

– Bed Bath & Beyond

– Boscov’s

 – JCPenney

– Meijer

– Saks

– Belk

– Carter’s

– Menards

– Sears

– Best Buy

– Dillard’s

– Lowe’s

– Neiman Marcus

– Target

– Bloomingdale’s

– Home Depot

– Macy’s

– Nordstrom

– Walmart

I was also told that when you’re ready to get an online price match just start a live chat session with Kohl’s and they’ll help you out.

Be sure to have your order number as well as the website where you found the lower price.

Can I Use a Coupon After I Get a Price Match?


I asked an employee specifically about this and she said that once you get the lower price match you CAN’T then use a coupon on top of the lower price.

It’s one or the other.

She also said (with a smile) that “Kohl’s would go out of business if we let you get a price match, use a coupon, and earn Kohl’s cash.” Fair enough.

What About Amazon?

Kohl’s will NOT price match products from Amazon or any other “online only” store.

But if you’re curious, these stores all WILL happily price match Amazon.

It’s also worth noting that Kohl’s will not accept a price match from warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam’s Club, and BJ’s.

Can You Get a Price Match on the Kohl’s Website?


You absolutely can get a price match on the Kohl’s website.

Sometimes a product’s price on Kohls.com may be slightly higher than the price in-store and presents an opportunity to get a little money back.

Keep in mind that this only works if the price shown online does NOT reflect any coupon codes.

Any Product Exclusions?


There are quite a few product exclusions to be aware of.

Some of the bigger product exclusions include:

– Mattresses

– Toys

– Select Novelty Gifts

– Sporting Goods

– Premium Electronics

Be sure to check out Kohl’s price match exclusions page to understand all the do’s and don’ts that are allowed.

Can I Get a Black Friday Price Match?


I was told that Kohl’s will not do any price matching on the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.

Also known as Cyber Week, you can’t get a price match during this time period because some retailers will offer crazy cheap doorbuster deals and Kohl’s does NOT want to match those prices.

Do I Need My Receipt to Make it Happen?


You must have your original receipt with you if you are looking to get a price adjustment.

This is to provide both proof of purchase and to see exactly when you bought the product as you only have 14 days to get a price adjustment.

Where Do I Go In the Store To Get a Price Match?

Kohl’s price match policy is rather vague on exactly where you go inside your local Kohl’s store to get a price match.

Ask an employee when you walk in and they’ll be able to direct you.

Likely for competitor price matching, it will be at the regular checkout section, while price adjustments are likely done in the returns section.

When it comes to doing the price match in-store, be sure to have a printed copy of the competitor’s local ad showing the identical product you wish to match.

The ad should have the product’s price and a description of the product to ensure it is identical to the Kohl’s product you are looking to match.

They are not specific in their exclusions and do their upmost best NOT to give a price adjustment.
