How To Price Match Amazon.com At Kohl’s
To make a price match request at Kohl’s, you’ll need to provide proof of a lower price at the competitor’s store or on Kohls.com.
If you’re trying to price match with a Kohls.com product, you can simply open the product page that displays the price on your mobile device and show it to a store employee.
As for items sold on Amazon.com, you will have to print a physical copy of the product page that displays the lower price along with other product information.
Although Kohl’s website specifically requests a physical print copy of the Amazon product ad, some Kohl’s stores will allow you to simply open and show the Amazon product page on your mobile device.
Does Kohl’s.com Price Match Online Products With Amazon?
Kohl’s does not price match items sold on Kohls.com with Amazon products and instead will only price match items sold in-store with identical ones sold by Amazon.
Additionally, this also depends on whether the item is available in stock at the particular Kohl’s location when you are making the price match request.
If the item is not available, Kohl’s will not entertain your price match request. Contact Kohl’s Customer Support if you have any further questions about this policy.
Which Amazon Products Does Kohl’s Price Match?
Kohl’s will price-match all types of items sold on Amazon (including clothes, food, etc.) as long as these are in stock at the Kohl’s location you are visiting.
The only requirements are that the product has to be identical to the one Kohl’s is selling, and the item in question must be sold directly by Amazon and not by a third-party seller.
Does Kohl’s Price Match Amazon Third-Party Sellers?
Kohl’s does not price match Amazon’s third-party sellers as its policy only covers products sold directly by Amazon.
You can check whether an item is sold by Amazon or a third-party seller by looking at the “Sold By” and “Fulfilled By” tabs in the product listing.
Does Kohl’s Offer Price Adjustment?
If you’ve bought an item from Kohl’s and later came across the same item listed at a lower price on Amazon, you can get the price adjusted at Kohl’s if you go back within 14 days of purchase.
As with price match requests, you will have to bring printed (or digital) proof of the lower price to a Kohl’s store. Once your request is approved, you will be refunded the difference between the prices.
What Are The Restrictions In Kohl’s Price Match Policy?
Kohl’s will not approve price match requests for Amazon products that fall in these two categories:
- Coupon-excluded merchandise, as well as items sold as part of sales and promotional offers
- All Amazon products advertised during the week of Thanksgiving and the week after that
For all other cases, you can get items price matched and get the price adjusted within 14 days after purchase.
What Other Stores Does Kohl’s Price Match With?
Amazon is currently the only online store that Kohl’s will price match with; all other businesses that only have an online presence are excluded from Kohl’s price match policy.
Other than that, Kohl’s will price-match items with any physical retail store that provides ads for its products.
For example, Sears, Walmart, and Target are all good contenders for a price match as they provide fliers and catalogs that can easily be brought into Kohl’s to provide proof of a lower price.
Note that Kohl’s website does not explicitly list the retail stores which are included in its price match policy.
Kohl’s will price match all types of products sold by Amazon that it also sells in its stores. However, Kohl’s will not price-match items sold on Kohls.com with Amazon products, nor will it price match with Amazon third-party seller items.
You will have to provide proof of the lower price at a Kohl’s store to get your request approved. This can be in the form of a printed ad (recommended) or a digital ad opened on your mobile device. Note that Kohl’s will not price match coupon-excluded items or those sold shortly after Thanksgiving.
