Yes, the Kohl's Credit Card has a grace period of at least 25 days, lasting from the end of each billing cycle until the payment due date. If cardholders pay their Kohl's Credit Card statement balance in full every month, Capital One will not charge any interest.
Keep in mind that you are not required to pay the entire balance by the due date. But if you decide to pay less than the full amount due, you will lose the grace period. The remaining Kohl's Credit Card balance and any new purchases will then start to accrue interest that compounds daily. To get a credit card grace period back, you will need to pay the statement balance in full for two consecutive months.
The Kohl's Credit Card minimum payment is either $29, or 1% of your balance plus interest charges and fees, whichever is greater. The exact amount is listed on each monthly statement and it’s typically due on the same date every month.
Balance of $29 to $2,900: Minimum payment equals $29
Balance over $2,900+: Minimum payment equals 1% of the balance, plus interest and fees
As long as you make Kohl's Credit Card’s minimum payment by the due date each month, your account will remain in good standing. Always paying your monthly minimum on time will help your credit score. It's important to know that in addition to your minimum payment, you must pay any past-due or over-limit amounts and any late-payment fees.
Lastly, keep in mind that you need to pay your balance in full every month to avoid interest.

No. A one-day-late payment does not affect a credit score. A late payment won’t be reported to the credit bureaus until it is 30 days past-due – meaning a second due date has passed. This could also trigger a loan to default, depending on the type of loan and the agreed upon terms. If you pay before the 30-day mark, your credit score is fine. Anything later, expect a drop – generally between 60 and 100 points, depending on the type of payment and starting credit score.… read full answer
Many loan agreements include a grace period that will forgive payments that arrive a few days late. Mortgage agreements often include a grace period of a few days to a few weeks. Auto loans typically include a 10-day grace period for payments. But make sure to check your loan documents to confirm just how long your grace period lasts.
Credit cards operate a bit differently. In some cases, late fees can be triggered if you miss a payment by just one day. The first time you miss a credit card payment, you can be charged up to $29. If you miss any subsequent payments over the next six billing cycles, you can be charged up to $40. Those fees are on top of any interest you may accrue for not paying off the full amount on your card. Credit cards also generally have grace periods, but these relate to being charged interest on your balance.
Delinquent payments of any type are considered negative information and remain on your credit report for 7 years from the date of the original missed payment.
