Kohl’s rolls out Apple Pay in fall; including private, loyalty cards

BY Dan Berthiaume

Menomonee Falls, Wis. – Kohl’s Department Stores will bring Apple Pay to customers in all Kohl’s stores nationwide this fall. Kohl’s will also be among the first retailers to integrate both its Kohl’s Charge private credit card as a form of payment as well as its successful Yes2You Rewards loyalty program within Apple Pay.

This fall, Apple Pay will be available to all Kohl’s customers including the more than 25 million active Kohl’s Charge card holders across the country. In addition, beginning this fall, Apple Pay will be available to the 30 million members of Kohl’s loyalty program, Yes2You Rewards.

Kohl’s shoppers can add Yes2You Rewards to the Wallet app in iOS 9 and seamlessly earn and redeem rewards at checkout with Apple Pay. When paying in stores, Yes2You Rewards members can hold their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus near the contactless reader with a finger on Touch ID to receive their individual rewards. On Apple Watch, they can double-click the side button, select their Yes2You Rewards card and hold the face of their Apple Watch up to the reader.

Kohl’s also launched its app for Apple Watch earlier in 2015, delivering access to Kohl’s savings offers on the go – including Kohl’s coupons, Yes2You Rewards and Kohl’s Cash, which customers can scan in store during the checkout process.

“Kohl's is committed to offering an easy and inspiring shopping experience and we will soon bring Apple Pay to customers in all of our 1,164 Kohl’s stores nationwide, in time for the busy holiday shopping season,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, CEO and president. “Supporting Apple Pay in Kohl’s stores lets us offer customers a convenient mobile payment option that allows them to use their Kohl’s Charge or other credit card while also earning points through Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards loyalty program.”
