The best part of Kohl’s 2021 Black Friday sales is the Kohl’s Cash offer, which allows you to earn $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend. Shop kitchen appliances including air fryers, toaster ovens, Keurig coffee makers and blenders. You don’t want to miss massive savings on bedding, shoes and apparel either. Black Friday is the best time to use up your Kohl’s Cash and earn some extra store cash towards future purchases.

When Will the 2021 Kohl’s Black Friday Ad Be Released?

Last year, Kohl’s released its Black Friday ad on November 1st. The announcement coincided with a weekend sale featuring select Black Friday deals, plus $15 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spent. The 2021 Kohl’s Black Friday ad is expected to be released as early as the end of October to provide a longer sales window so people can get a head start on their shopping.

When Does Kohl’s 2021 Black Friday Sale Begin Online?

  • Black Friday deals are expected to go live online starting at 12:01 a.m. CT on Monday, November 22nd

The store is should once again kick off its online sale the Monday before Thanksgiving, giving shoppers a full week to enjoy Black Friday deals from the comfort of their homes.
Kohl’s Black Friday doorbusters and Super Deals, however, may not be available online until Thanksgiving Day.

What Are the Best Black Friday Items to Buy at Kohl’s?

Which deals are decent, and which ones are really incredible? The answer typically comes down to whether or not you’ll make good use of your Kohl’s Cash. Here are a few areas in which Kohl’s Black Friday 2021 deals will beat out its competitors:

  • Gaming consoles and gaming bundles: Each year, Kohl’s gets a limited supply of consoles and gaming bundles. By using store discounts and Kohl’s Cash, these prices often beat out Target’s Black Friday deals.
  • Popular kitchen appliances and cooking sets: For Black Friday 2021, you will be able to find better deals on huge cookware sets and container sets than you would buy each piece individually. So even if you don’t need a 10-piece pan set, consider splitting with a friend or relative to take advantage of the sale.
  • Home essentials: If you need to refresh your towels, blankets and pillow collection, you can save up to 75% off by doing so during Kohl’s Black Friday sale.

Kohl’s sets itself apart from most of its retail competitors by offering bonus Kohl’s Cash throughout its Black Friday sale. The good part is that you’ll usually get a better deal going with Kohl’s than other stores. On the other hand, Kohl’s Cash has a very limited redemption window, so you want to make sure you actually use your reward money during that time frame before it expires. If you are not going to use your earned Kohl’s Cash, then many of Kohl’s Black Friday 2021 deals may not provide the best price for you.

What Time Does Kohl’s Open on Black Friday and Thanksgiving?

  • Kohl’s has officially confirmed that all stores nationwide will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Black Friday Store Hours TBD: While not officially released, Black Friday deals are estimated to be available online starting at 12:01 a.m. CT on Sunday, November 21. In-store sales are likely to start the next day on November 22, 2021 when stores open at 8 a.m.
  • Super Deals Sales: Black Friday doorbusters and Super Deals are expected to be available ONLINE starting Thursday, November 25th at 12:01 a.m. CT.

This year, Kohl’s will be closed for in-store shopping on Thanksgiving Day, but you can still shop amazing deals online.
Keep in mind that Kohl’s is known for offering its customers extended store hours in the weeks leading up to Christmas Eve, so expect more of the same in 2021.

Will Kohl’s Have Early Black Friday Deals?

Last year’s Kohl’s Black Friday sale started extra early — with deals and $15 Kohl’s Cash for every $48 you spend starting on November 6th. With Amazon launching many of its Black Friday deals in October, we have no doubt Kohl’s will follow suit for an epic pre-Black Friday sale for 2021.
Tip: If you’re a Kohl’s cardholder, there’s a good chance you will receive a Black Friday mailer for a special $10 promotional gift before the shopping event.

When is the Best Time to Shop at Kohl’s?

  • Online starting Monday, November 22nd if you’re just looking for regular Black Friday deals
  • As early as possible online on Thanksgiving Day for doorbusters, starting at 12:01 a.m. CT

The best time to shop the Kohl’s 2021 Black Friday sale depends on what you are buying. If you have your eyes set on a doorbuster or online special, it is best to snag it first thing, since there is a likelihood it will sell fast. In order to maximize your Black Friday savings, you might need to split up your purchases and shopping times. Just make sure you always buy in $50 increments to trigger the bonus $15 Kohl’s Cash.
Plan your Kohl’s Cash shopping trip too so you don’t waste all your hard work. Put a reminder in your phone for your Kohl’s Cash expiration date and check Slickdeals for after-Black Friday Kohl’s deals.
