The easiest way to submit a Kohl's Credit Card application is online. You’ll need to provide some personal information, but it shouldn't take you more than a few minutes to complete the application. If you are unsure about getting approved, you can check to see if you’re pre-qualified for the Kohl’s Credit Card first.
How to apply for a Kohl’s Credit Card:
Go to the Kohl’s Charge Card section of the Kohl’s website.
Click the “Apply Now” button.
Fill out your name, address, phone number, Social Security number, date of birth, annual gross income, and email address.
Review the disclosures. This tells you your interest rate and other important information.
Click “Continue to Review,” and review your application.
Submit your application. You will often get a decision instantly.
You can also apply for a Kohl's credit card in-store by talking to a cashier or customer service agent. They will give you a paper application form, and you'll need to provide the same information as you would online.
Applicants need at least fair credit (a score above 640) to get approved for the Kohl's Credit Card, in most cases. Credit card issuers also consider income and existing debt obligations when making approval decisions, however.

That said, just because you’re pre-qualified doesn’t mean you’ll get approved – it just means you’re likely to get approved.… read full answer
The credit bureau Kohl's will use really depends on your location and other non-disclosed factors. For me, they pulled TU and Experian.
As far as I know, they don't pull the same thing for everybody. No real way to know for sure. So it's best to check all 3 of your credit reports and make sure they do not have errors.… read full answer
The Target Credit Card credit score requirement is 640 or better. That means you’ll need a “fair” credit score. The Target Credit Card is a store card, and just about all store credit cards require fair credit. But because it’s a store credit card, it can only be used to make Target purchases, in-store and online.… read full answer
When you apply for a Target credit card, your credit score is one of the major factors that TD Bank (the card’s issuer) will consider. But it’s not the only factor.

You can apply for the Target REDcard online, by mail, or in person at a local Target store. When you apply online, you may be approved instantly, or your application may require additional review. A decision on a pending application can take 7-10 business days.
