kohl's cash is a pain. can't return the stuff you buy with it
Are you sure? are you talking about returning a item that earned Kohl's cash or returning a item that you paid with Kohl's cash?.
On Friday I returned 1 item (over 170) that I paid with KC (165) and CC (5+) without any problem, I got the $5+ to my credit card and the store credit (Kohl's gift card) for the amount of $165. Now my credit will not expire and I can apply the discount (15~25%) before applying the store credit
