MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kohl’s (NYSE:
KSS) customers are now able to pay for their purchases with Kohl’s
Charge and simultaneously earn Yes2You
Rewards loyalty points with a single tap using Apple
Pay. The service is currently available in approximately 250 Kohl’s
stores and is expected to be in all Kohl’s stores nationwide later this
month, making Kohl’s the first retailer to deliver a one-tap checkout
that integrates both its private credit card as a form of payment and
successful 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.”
Kohl’s first announced the availability of Apple Pay in Kohl’s stores in
June 2015. Kohl’s customers can add Yes2You Rewards to the Wallet app in
iOS 9 and seamlessly earn rewards at checkout with Apple Pay. When
paying in stores, customers simply hold their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus,
iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone SE near the contactless reader with
a finger on Touch ID to pay and receive their individual rewards.
On Apple Watch, they just double-click the side button and hold the face
of their Apple Watch up to the reader.
Supporting Apple Pay in stores is part of Kohl’s ongoing effort to
create an easy, omnichannel shopping experience. Kohl’s mobile app
delivers access to Kohl’s savings offers on the go – including Kohl’s
coupons, Yes2You Rewards, Kohl’s gift cards and Kohl’s Cash – which
customers can scan in store during the checkout process. The app also
makes it easy to browse and shop by category, check the price of an item
and see related offers, and search available inventory when signed into
store mode. Kohl’s mobile app has had 12 million downloads to date.
