Do You Recommend This Credit Card?

No
If you aren't a regular customer or you only shop there occasionally, you can find a much better rewards card and one with a lower interest rate, but note that you cannot use the coupons without using their charge card.
Who Will Get the Most Out of This Credit Card
The regular Kohl's shopper that takes full advantage of their prices and cash back sales events. Just make sure to not carry a balance on this credit card as the APR is over twenty percent.

Is The Interest Rate Competitive

This card, like many retail store cards, doesn't come with an introductory offer. If you don't pay your balance in full before the grace period is up you will be hit with a pretty high interest rate at 23.99%. The initial credit limit is based on your credit history; when I applied my limit was set at $1,5000 and my credit score is above average. Don't expect to receive a high limit on a charge card. There is no option to transfer a balance to this card.

How Do You Like the Rewards

The Kohl's card doesn't have a rewards program, but it does come with special discounts and coupons that are mailed to card-members every month that can only be used in conjunction with the card. If you apply in-store you receive fifteen percent off your purchase. If you are a Kohl's associate the employee discount can stack with most discounts and coupons.

MVC

If you make $600 worth of charges in a year you are upgraded to Most Valued Customer status, which gives you added benefits of a $10 gift card for your birthday and you can choose 6 days to shop with extra savings.
