Kohl’s released its 2020 Black Friday ad on Nov. 6, kicking off its holiday sale with a handful of early deals (including the following three) that are live online and in stores through Nov. 10:
Kohl’s surprises us every year with some of the top Black Friday discounts on tech, but your mom’s favorite department store came through with some *especially* good deals for 2020.
Unveiled Nov. 6 — about a week later than usual, according to BlackFriday.com — the retailer’s 2020 Black Friday preview ad reveals its plans for massive discounts on headphones, smart home devices, Fitbits, Instant Pots, vacuums, Fire tablets, and more for the week of Black Friday, along with the return of its signature Black Friday Kohl’s Cash offer of $15 for every $50 spent. Select deals include more Kohl’s Cash on top of that, and you can clip a 15% off coupon from the ad to save even further.
Among the sale’s many highlights: You can score a highly sought-after Nintendo Switch, a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a 3-month Nintendo Switch Online membership for just $299 altogether, or the list price of the console itself (a $68 savings) — that’s major.
That Switch bundle and dozens of other deals will go live online at midnight EST and in-stores at 8 a.m. local time on Sunday, Nov. 22, when Kohl’s Black Friday Week Sale officially kicks off. It’s scheduled to run through Black Friday proper on Nov. 27, with two days of “Super Deals” starting Thursday, Nov. 26 at 1:01 a.m. EST on the Kohl’s website and in stores at 5 a.m. local time on the 27th. (All Kohl’s stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, FYI, so feel free to lean into that food coma.)
Kohl’s is one of the very last retailers to announce its Black Friday plans — Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Macy’s, and Dell‘s all arrived ahead of schedule in mid- to late-October. But don’t let that put you off: We’ve seen Kohl’s beat other retailers’ holiday pricing by sweetening deals with that Kohl’s Cash offer, so it’s well worth working into this year’s Black Friday shopping strategy. (Just remember to spend your Kohl’s Cash before it expires.)
You can check out our favorite offers from the Kohl’s ad scan below, including some early deals that are already live online through Nov. 10. (Note that any available deals have been linked — we’ll update this post if/when we see new deals pop up.)
Apple H1 chip and Class 1 Bluetooth connectivity
Up to 9 hours of listening time (more than 24 hours with the included charging case)
Water- and sweat-resistant design
An excellent AirPods alternative, Beats’ Mashable’s Choice Award-winning Powerbeats Pro earbuds happen to be listed for just $159.99 on Amazon right now. (They usually retail for $249.95.) Kohl’s doesn’t match pricing — it has them on sale for $199.99, or 23% off — but winds up walking away with the better deal by throwing in a whopping $60 in Kohl’s Cash on top of its discount.
More deals on headphones and speakers:
SMART HOME DEALS
At just $64.99, or half off its $129.99 MSRP, this HD smart display is enjoying its biggest discount since its fall 2019 release and includes a bonus $15 in Kohl’s Cash. (Amazon had it on sale for the same price at the time of writing, but it’s backordered until Nov. 25 — and besides, Jeff Bezos won’t give you any of that sweet, sweet Kohl’s Cash.)
More deals on smart home devices:
HOME AND KITCHEN DEALS
Four different brew sizes (6-, 8-, 10-, or 12-ounce cups)
Large 52-ounce water reservoir
Strong Brew setting for bolder taste
Kohl’s is practically giving this Keurig away: Normally $149.99, there’s a random coupon code on its Kohls.com product page (SHOP20) that’ll save you an extra 20% on top of its $79.99 Black Friday sale pricing. If you enter that at checkout, you’ll pay just $63.99 — a 57% total savings. (And for the cherry on top, your purchase comes with $15 in Kohl’s Cash to spend within a week — might we suggest some K-Cups?)
