Now, let’s break it down in detail.

Step 1: Get 25-50% off apparel and home purchases during Kohl’s Anniversary Sale

You can find the latest deals on Kohl’s merchandise in their Daily Deal section. The anniversary sale goes on through Sunday, September 22nd, so even if you miss the rest of the deals, keep an eye out for things you might like.

Step 2: Get 25% off your order with promo code IKSTHJ

This promo code expires on September 18th, so act fast. There are a few restrictions: They exclude high-end cosmetics and fragrances, Kohl’s Cares merchandise, and gift cards.

Step 3: Try to spend as close to a multiple of $50 as you can

You get $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 that you spend, so the closer your spending is to a multiple of $50, the closer your discount is to 20%. Here are a few examples:

$40 $0 0%
$50 $10 20%
$65 $10 15%
$100 $20 20%

You must spend your Kohl’s Cash between September 19th and 29th. This promotion expires on September 18th as well.

Step 4: Get 5-10% off with credit card or cash back websites
