Kohl’s Black Friday 2021 Sale & Ad – What to Expect

Updated on Monday October 25, 2021: There’s still some time left to go until Kohl’s Black Friday sale arrives again but you can scroll down the page to view last year’s details to get a general idea of the type of offers they typically run (you can expect to see similar deals return).

However from now through October 31st you can shop kohls.com to get $10 off your order of $50 or more (use coupon GET10) + 20% off your entire purchase (use coupon YOUR20) + earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent. Some exclusions apply so be sure to see their site for complete offer details and official terms.

As always, we’ll be posting a copy of their ad, sale start/end dates and all the important details for 2021 the moment we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.


Black Friday 2021 Start & End Dates

Ever since we started tracking Kohl’s Black Friday sales 6 years ago, they’ve been running nearly the exact same sales schedule. And even though all stores were closed on Thanksgiving day itself last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sale dates were mostly unchanged. That’s why we’re not expecting any significant changes to this year’s timeframe as well.

  • Expected general Black Friday start date: Sunday November 21, 2021 at 12:01AM CT (online). In-stores the deals are likely to begin the next day on Monday November 22, 2021 when doors open at 8:00AM. All offers are expected to be valid through Friday November 26, 2021 at 11:59PM CT or when stores close, while supplies last.
  • Expected Black Friday “Super Deals” start date, online: Thursday November 25, 2021 at 12:01AM CT (these are Kohl’s doorbuster deals, usually highlighted in yellow in their Black Friday ad).
  • Expected Black Friday “Super Deals” start date, in-stores: Historically, Kohl’s opens their doors at 5:00PM local time on Thanksgiving day. But we’ve confirmed that this will be the second year in a row that Kohl’s will close all stores nationwide due to the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Expected Black Friday and Black Friday “Super Deals” end date: Friday November 26, 2021 at 11:59PM CT or when stores close, or while supplies last.

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates based off of last year’s sales schedule. Kohl’s confirmed Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale dates/times for 2021 will be posted as soon as they are officially announced by the company. Bookmark this page and check back periodically for the latest updates or signup to our newsletter and we’ll let you know once their ad is released.


Current Offers

We’re including a complete list of Kohl’s current offers and coupons below (all the deals are live right now!). Don’t shop their store or site until you to double check the specials available today. Good luck and happy bargain hunting!


Our Favorite Deals for 2021

Typically with over 80+ pages of deals, Kohl’s Black Friday ad is packed with everything from electronics to toys, jewelry to clothes, and a whole lot more. Often you’ll find many of the same items overlapping to those featured at Walmart, Best Buy and Target and at the same advertised sale prices. The only difference being that Kohl’s is known for offering “Kohl’s Cash” — It’s basically a store credit offer where you’ll earn points to use on a future purchase for all purchases made over their Black Friday event. Last year it was $15 of credit for every $50 spent. We’re expecting the same to return for 2021.

In terms of the best bargains, these are often featured in yellow as “super deals” or “doorbuster deals” and are only available on Thursday-Friday in very limited quantities. Here’s what you should be on the lookout for this year:

  • Gaming consoles — Deals on gaming consoles are huge every Black Friday, but with social distancing being the new norm, this will definitely once again be a blow-out category this year. That’s especially considering that PS5 and Xbox Series X are new and were completely unavailable during last year’s holiday season (not only due to huge demand but partly due to a worldwide computer chip shortage). Similar to other retailers, Kohl’s will likely have a bundle available on each console with the same sale pricing that you’ll see everywhere else. But what makes Kohl’s the best store to pick up a console is the Kohl’s Cash that often comes with it; you can expect around $100 worth that can be used on a qualifying future purchase.
  • Kitchen appliances — I don’t know about you, but I’ve never cooked at home as much during this last year than the previous 10 years combined. So if you need some new machines to make your life easier, then you’ll have plenty to choose from. Last year Kohl’s had the Keurig K-Supreme single serve coffee maker on sale for $99.99 + extra 15% off with coupon + $15 worth of Kohl’s Cash. There was also the Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 press cooker on sale for $69.99 (with $15 Kohl’s Cash), the 5-quart KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer on sale for $279.99 (with $75 Kohl’s Cash), and the Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-iQ on sale for $101.99 + extra 15% off with coupon (with $30 Kohl’s Cash).
  • Toys — Black Friday is a great time to pick up toys for your little ones. Kohl’s always has a few pages-worth of deals with our favorites last year being select Lego sets on sale for 30% off; up to 50% off popular board games like Monopoly, Sorry and Candy Land; and an entire page of under-$20 deals such as a basketball hoop, LED light-up kick scooter, Barbie set, and inflatable ball pit.
  • Video Doorbells — This was a popular Christmas gift last year, and may be even more-so this year due to the unprecedented number of packages that we’ve been receiving due the pandemic (these help deter those so called “porch pirates” that steal your deliveries left at your front door). Last year the Google Nest Hello Video doorbell was featured on the cover of Kohl’s Black Friday ad for $179.99 (regularly $229.99). It also came with $45 worth of Kohl’s Cash. They also had the Ring Video Doorbell 3 on sale for $139.99.
  • Smart speakers — With rivals Amazon and Google trying to get customers on their smart home platforms, we were the ones who benefits from the deep discounts. Last year you could have picked up your choice of either the Google Nest Home Mini or the the Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Gen for just $18.99/each. There was also the Amazon Echo Dot 4th Gen on sale for $28.99 and the Amazon Echo Show 5 compact 5.5-inch smart display with Alexa on sale or $44.99.
  • Wireless Headphones and Earphones — You can expect at least one full page of deals on a variety of headphones and earphones. Last year our favorites were the Beats Solo Pro wireless headphones on sale for $229.99 (came with $60 worth of Kohl’s Cash), the JLab JBuds Air Sport true wireless earbuds on sale for $34.99, and the Sony True wireless bluetooth earbuds on sale for $69.99 (came with $15 worth of Kohl’s Cash). Just don’t expect any bargains on those wild expensive Apple AirPods Max headphones that were just released last last year.

This should give you a general idea on the deals likely coming our way here in 2021. We’ll of course be updating this list once Kohl’s Black Friday ad is leaked sometime in early November.

  1. I’ll be picking up a new crock pot and maybe a KitchenAid mixer. I’m hoping Kohl’s will have some good deals on them this year for Black Friday!

    1. Hi Melissa – Unfortunately, not all the deals go live early on Kohl’s website today, just a select number of them are included in the “preview” Black Friday sale this year happening today. Cheers, Eric
