Today I returned two of the amazon products in Kohls store, they are giving $5 kohls cash automatically printed on the receipt. Since I saw the coupon issuing to the customer in front of me, i returned them seperated and got two $5 kohls cash. Hope this is not local and applicable for all Kohls Stores.

My zip code is: 75063

Amazon Return offers will vary by location/region.

Seems like a problematic business model to reward returns.
I know this is probably cheaper than shipping it back, but still.

It's still getting shipped back to Amazon. The idea is to encourage purchasing at Kohl's when making an Amazon return.

My understanding is that this is more of Kohl's doing than Amazon's.

Kohl's initial plan for partnering with Amazon to accept Amazon returns is so there is more foot traffic in their stores. I suppose this is yet another update on the end of Kohl's to hopefully get more of Amazon's customers to their stores. Often, when I am at a Kohl's store to return a product I purchased from Amazon, the Kohl's reps give me a 15% or 20% off coupon. This is the first time I've heard of them straight-up giving away Kohl's Cash.

I have read mixed news about how well it's working for Kohl's. That said, it looks like Staples is going to start accepting other retailers' returns starting January 2021 (source [retailwire.com]).

Take care,
Tofu Vic

Just from a Kohl's to return a keyboard. I also surprised to get a 5 dollars cash. And it's could be used on anything.

Maybe the percent off coupons aren't enticing enough. I've made two returns and received a 30% coupon the first time, and a 25% coupon the second trip. I didn't use either of them since Kohl's prices have steadily increased to make up for the coupons and their exclusions list has grown. Kohl's Cash would be a nice incentive though.

First, Thanks OP for the heads up.

At my two local Kohls they put the Amazon return lines in the back of the store to get you to walk all the way through through the store and look around. (Like milk at the grocery store Huh)

But I don't think it's working. The Amazon return line always has many more people in it than Kohls checkout lines.

That said, if they hand me $5 Kohls cash instead of a percent-off coupon, I'm sure I'll find something to use it on.

Do you have to do smart code returns there? Is there a way to print that like labels or phone based only? (want to send my non-techie wife who likes Kohls to test)

after kohls start to give random 40% coupons, my purchase at kohls reduced greatly.

Yes they accept smart codes, just show them the code, no need to print

No you have the option to print a label. That's what I do since it seems like inevitably I can't get things like the smart code to pull up on my phone when needed, and hell if I want to make another trip back since it's about a 30 min drive to my nearest Kohl's.
