My Experience Doing An Amazon Return At Kohl’s
I have pretty much tried every way to do an Amazon return now. My latest trial was an Amazon return at Kohl’s. It isn’t the most convenient option, that would be an Amazon locker return for me, but I think it could be the best option. It really isn’t any different than doing a return at Whole Foods but it does come with a nice little perk that I will talk about later. Which option is best for you will depend on which option is closest to your home or work. Having said that, if all things are equal I think Kohl’s returns may be the best option.
Amazon Return Instructions
I will give you some step by step instructions on what I needed to do and how my Amazon return went.
Step 1 – Select Return Option
The first thing you need to do is to select where to return your item when logged into your Amazon account. They will list all available locations after selecting the item you want to return. Whole Foods and Amazon were also offered for this return but Amazon Locker was not an option.
Step 2 – Be Sure You Have The QR Code
Once you select the location you want they will give you a QR code to be scanned. I did it on the computer so I took a picture of the QR code with my phone and just pulled the picture up at the store. You should be able to access this with the Amazon app on your phone as well. You could also print it off if you want.
Step 3 – Head To The Store’s Designated Amazon Return Area
Kohl’s does a good job of signage throughout the store for Amazon returns. There were signs hanging from the ceiling and arrow stickers on the floor. They had a makeshift desk set up in the home / bedding area. I am sure it could be in different locations depending on the store but just look for the signs. The process overall was very quick, as they had two employees working the desk, and was a much better experience than a normal trip to Kohl’s service desk.
Why Returning At Kohl’s May Be The Best Option
Kohl’s isn’t any easier than Whole Foods really, the process took about the same time for each. But the nice perk about Kohl’s is they will often give you a 20% off coupon or some Kohl’s cash for doing the return with them. This is a bonus that no other option offers. It isn’t a guarantee but it happens pretty frequently. They want you coming back for your Amazon returns so you buy something while in the store. I am guilty as charged too, so their plan worked!
Amazon Return At Kohl’s Final Thoughts
Which Amazon return choice you choose will likely depend what is closest to you. The Amazon Locker option is a few blocks from my house, so that is my number one choice, but it often isn’t offered. When that option isn’t available I know that I will take my Amazon return to Kohl’s. The process is easy and there is a good chance you get something extra for doing it with them. It may even be worth holding some Amazon returns a few extra days if you know you have an upcoming Kohl’s purchase. Who knows, you may be able to get it at a discount simply for dropping off your Amazon package.
