For years, one of the best consistent shopping portal deals was to shop at Kohl’s through the Ultimate Rewards Mall. Ever since I first used the Ultimate Rewards Mall in 2011, Kohl’s has offered 10 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar.
On Thursday, people started noticing that Kohl’s had begun to disappear. At the time, if you logged into the Ultimate Rewards Mall with an Ink account, you would still see Kohl’s at 10X, but if you logged in with a Freedom or Sapphire account, Kohl’s was missing. Then, sometime on Friday I think, Kohl’s disappeared from Ink logins as well.
Is this loss temporary or permanent? I don’t know. For now, the best alternatives such as TopCashBack at 7% or Ebates at 6% can be found here. If you need Kohl’s gift cards, try going through a portal to Staples and pay with your Ink card. That way you can earn portal points or cash back plus 5X with your Ink card for an office supply purchase.
