You Can Return Your Amazon Purchases At Kohl’s This Summer
If you're an online shopper, you know it's a pain in the butt to return things you don't want. You have to repackage the purchase, take it to the post office, stand in line, yada yada yada. But starting this summer you can take your Amazon returns to Kohl's.
Right now, there are a stores in Chicago, Los Angeles and Milwaukee areas that accept Amazon returns, but beginning in July, you'll be able to use any Kohl's store to return your Amazon purchases. I think that is the one problem I have with online shopping. I absolutely hate to do the return.
If it sounds strange for a brick-and-mortar store to be working with an entity that seems determined to kill off in-person shopping, Kohl's says they formed this partnership to be "swimming alongside the shark, instead of trying to swim in front of it."
From the Kohl's website, here's how to do an Amazon return to Kohl's:
Begin your return with Amazon’s Online Return Center
Select the Kohl’s Dropoff option
Amazon will email you a QR code
Bring the item(s) you’re returning to a participating Kohl’s store and show the QR code on your smartphone to a Kohl’s associate in-store
Kohl’s will pack, label and ship your return for free.
You can also use designated parking spots near the store entrance if you are using Kohl's to do a return to Amazon, so that's super cool, as well.
