Sears and Kmart Shop Your Way Program
This post will help you make the most out of the Shop You Way program and will serve as the Kmart and Sears Savings Guide. First, you want to sign up to have me as your Personal Shopper. You want to use this program because Sears and Kmart are giving lots of money away for free. I have been playing the sweepstakes for the last year and a half. I have ordered so many items and even my husband has an account and plays everyday. I order mostly baby and kids clothes, he orders mostly tools.
You can have a Shop You Way account per person in the household 18 years and older. Check your account weekly for FREECash points. Follow the instructions below for each account holder.
To start playing sweeps, you will want to install these apps on your phone – Shop Your Way and Win it!. Both apps have different sweepstakes and instant win games you can win points. Shop You Way sweepstakes are also available here through the website whileWin it! is exclusively through the app. You should also try to play through the sweeps and instant win games daily. The Win it! app has Xtra and Bonus games that are available throughout the day, every day and only last 1 hour. The bonus and Xtra games have high value wins like $3 which is 3,000 Shop Your Way points.
Also, the Win it! app has Wild Wednesdays which is a must day to play sweeps and instant win games as one exclusive Wild Wednesday sweep will be available and almost always awards you points when played. In addition, Win it! app has the Xtra tab to play sweeps but there is a Win List where you can add 10 of your very own selection of items to play to win every day. Sometimes playing these 10 Win List items will give you additional points as well.
Almost all points are good for 14 days from when you earn. These points can be combined with your FREECash points you earn.
What are FREECash Points?
FREECash points are points added to your account and are good for certain items. It is best to login to a computer to read the entire description of what the points are good for. I have noticed the app doesn’t always tell you all the details. From time-to-time, Shop Your Way rewards you with $5 FREECash on any purchase from Sears or Kmart or from just one of the stores. If you only have a Sears by you, don’t be afraid to go ahead order something if you are limited to just a Kmart store. Many times I order items from Kmart but have shipped to my local Sears store.
Redeeming Your Points:
Your points are valid for 14 days from when you earn them from either shopping or playing sweepstakes. If it is a larger purchase or large sweepstake win your points may be available 30 -365 days from earning them. You can login to your Shop Your Way account from a computer from the Shop Your Way website directly to review your points. In addition, you may see $XX in FREECash. These are free points that Shop Your Ways has rewarded your account and can stack with your personal points. Your points will not stack with coupons. There are many coupons you can add or promo codes you can use but at this point, Shop Your Way does not allow using points and coupons together.
The FREECash points are only redeemable for certain items and shopping online will eliminate the headache in store. I have had issues where the FREECash point description just says tools on the app but when I go home and look from a computer it specifies certain tools. In any case, save yourself time by just shopping online. Tip below for free shipping or in-store pick up.
Tips for Online Ordering:
I personally prefer shopping and ordering from either the Sears or Kmart website from the computer. The app takes longer to browse items when shopping. On the websites, there is an option to shop what is available at a particular store like the Sears or Kmart closest to you, or you can shop the “Sears Only” tab which shows additional items available from Sears and some Kmart items available for shipping or in-store pick up. In short, this means the available Kmart items may ship to your Sears store for pick up saving you a trip. Sounds very confusing but after you order a couple of times you will get the hang of it, just follow the steps below.
The first tab will be Sears + Marketplace. The Marketplace is where Shop You Way has teamed up to allow other merchants to sell on their site. You cannot redeem points for Marketplace affiliates. See above picture to see the tabs I am referring to. Of course it is ideal if you can use your points on sale items or clearance items.
Shipping or Pick Up:
Sign up for Shop Your Way Max free 90 day trial ($39 annually) to receive FREE Shipping on qualifying items from Sears of Kmart with $25 purchase. Military or School affiliation can try the program for 180 days for free. Typically within a 14 day period I can earn on average $15 in Shop Your Way points by playing sweepstakes and instant win games. In addition, you will have FREECash points you can stack with your points. Most times I have like a $10 off $30 Sears Shoe FREECash offer and if I have $15 in points that means I only need to spend $5 out of pocket to receive $30 in shoes shipped to my home. Stacking all the offers are wonderful way to save money and to make the most out of the program.
Also, recently I noticed if your shop online and select shipping, choosing to have the slowest shipping method will reward you $1 in points (1,000 points). If it is an item you are in no rush to receive, why not receive free points for slower shipping?!
If you already used the FREE 90 day trial to Shop Your Way Max, just order online like you normally would then select free in-store pick up. When I lived in California, Kmart was the closest to us so I shopped most at Kmart. At Kmart you will pick up your in store pick up orders at the customer service desk. Now we live in Georgia and there is not a Kmart near us, however, there is a Sears; so we just go there! Some Sears stores will have you enter your cell phone number at checkout then park in certain parking spots right near the entrance and have your order carried out to you. But if you prefer, you can go inside and pick up your online orders. They will have signs and a computer for you to sign in at for an attendant to grab your order.
Why you want a Personal Shopper:
Adding me as your personal shopper gives you a direct line to text or email me. I can find the best deal for the item you are in search of. The ease of having a complimentary personal shopper isn’t the only perk. You’ll be part of an exciting program that rewards you with points and benefits for more shopping fun!
