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.
It’s a good idea to see if you’re pre-qualified for a Kohl’s Credit Card before you apply. Pre-qualification can give you a good idea of your approval odds, and it doesn’t count as a hard pull on your credit. That said, just because you’re pre-qualified doesn’t mean you’ll get approved – it just means you’re likely to get approved.
Fair credit is supposedly required for Kohl’s credit card approval, but I’ve heard of people getting approved for the Kohl’s card with credit scores as low as 550. Just go to their website and see if you’re pre-qualified first.

The easiest unsecured credit cards to get generally work best for minor emergencies. You will only receive a small amount of spending power, after all.
Unsecured credit cards for people with bad credit also tend to be very expensive, charging lots of fees and high interest rates. So if you don’t need a small emergency loan, the best course of action is to improve your credit inexpensively with a secured card. Secured cards are cheaper than unsecured cards, build credit just as effectively, and offer the closest thing you’ll find to guaranteed approval.
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
