Department store retailer, Kohls, recently got booted from the S&P 500 index, losing its spot to online artisan market, Etsy. In a bold new move, Kohl’s decides to rework its customer reward system, dropping points and going all in on its signature Kohl’s Cash. According to USA today, Kohl’s chief marketing officer said the change is meant to streamline rewards, “So that will make it much easier for customers to understand what they’re earning, what they have available and how to redeem it.”
