Kohl’s Charge and Yes2You Rewards Available in Apple Pay
Kohl’s customers will now be able to complete transactions with their Kohl’s charge card and earn Yes2You Rewards points by using Apple Pay. Currently, the service is available in 250 stores nationwide but will be available in all Kohl’s stores later this month.
This will make Kohl’s the first retailer to integrate one-tap checkout and a loyalty program with Apple Pay.
“Kohl’s is blending the physical and digital shopping experiences in more ways than ever before. Offering conveniences to Kohl’s customers that make it easy for them—like a seamless one-tap checkout in Apple Pay that integrates our value-driven Yes2You Rewards loyalty program—is one of the ways that we are leading as an omnichannel retailer,” said Ratnakar Lavu, Kohl’s chief technology officer. “We are continuing to innovate in mobile to provide an easy, seamless shopping experience whether it’s our mobile payment offerings, the features and functionality on Kohl’s mobile app or the Kohls.com experience on smartphones and tablets.”
Apple Pay first became available in Kohl’s stores in June 2015, and now customers can add Yes2You Rewards to their iOS 9 Wallet app. Kohl’s customers can use their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and Apple Watch to pay in-store and store their Kohl’s gift cards, coupons, rewards and Kohl’s Cash on their mobile device.
