Kohl’s Charge Card

For People with
Fair Credit



The Kohl’s credit card is called the Kohl’s Charge Card, even though you can carry a balance with it like a typical credit card. It offers a generous selection of discounts, but watch out for the high APR.

Right now you can also take an extra 35% off your first Kohl’s charge purchase in-store or online.

Where can I use my Kohl’s Charge Card?

This card can be used at Khol’s department stores or at its online store.

Convenient; Bad Billing Service

I've had this card since 1998. Recently I received a bill showing a late payment. I immediately looked for my previous months bill because I pay my bills and file them when I receive them. In short, I didn't find a bill for that month. So, because the amount of the late payment was so low, I went ahead and paid it rather than fighting with Kohls. Then I tried to set up an autopay so that no future bills would be missed even if I didn't received a bill. When I called Kohls Customer Service, I explained all of this to them. They said if I had missed a payment, I could not set up an autopay for a couple of billing cycles. This makes no sense unless Kohls is making extra $$$ by failing to send out statements resulting in late fees. Then, by not letting me sign up for autopay, I can't prevent this from happening again. I told customer service to look at my account history to see that my payments were made on time. This did absolutely no good. I am a MVC cardholder and have a good credit score. No effort was made on my behalf to help resolve this issue. I love to shop at Kohls both in the store and online. If I wasn't such a fan of the store I would cancel this card. However, since their good sales are tied to their credit card I won't. My recommendation to others is to set up autopay before you have a credit issue, because Kohls customer service isn't going to help after you have a problem.

Kohl's Card is NOT worth it

This is the worst credit card ever!! They never mailed me an actual credit card, So I only had that tiny slip of paper with my account number, which I unfortunately lost 6 months later. I literally could not access my account to make a payment. Even after calling and giving my SS# and DOB, I still could not get my Account Number. I dealt with customer service in the Philippines and was cut off. Then, someone from Mexico City who actually lied and told me he would email my account number. Finally, I finally got a customer service rep in Wisconsin who was able to help, but that was a whole lot of wasted time and frustration just to pay my bill and give Kohls money.Maybe this company should think about keeping its customer service in the USA where the operators actually care about their customers. It was a complete disservice to outsource my call to these other operators who were not helpful at all and literally lied. This Kohl's credit card is not worth the hassle! Don't bother with it. You can still gt Kohl's Cash and coupons without this credit card. Don't waste your time.

They lost my check that I sent. Charged me a fee. I had the fee reversed. And then they charged me a fee that was double the original fee because I didn't pay the original fee "on time," the original fee that was reversed. Just continued bad customer service!!!!!!!
