What do you mean we are only 45 days until Christmas? How in the world did THAT happen? That 45 days is going to be gone in a hurry so it is time to start planning. More than finding the perfect gift and using services like In-Vehicle Pick Up and Reserve It, where you can place things on hold online until you can get to the store and check them out, it is time to start looking at upgrading those appliances to handle all of the Holiday guests and meals that will impress! Since we all know that Sears is a one stop shop for everything from ranges, refrigerators, clothing, tools and more, it makes sense that they also have the experts available to help us make the right decisions! From experience, I need more than Google and word of mouth to choose an appliance that will be in my house for years to come. I need to know why one is better than another, why the in ice feature is better than the ice try in freezer and how the appliance I am interested in will benefit me in the long term! Sears’ ‘Meet With an Expert‘ service gives you an expert to answer all of your questions, free of charge!

Did you read that? A designated Expert will help you navigate the burner patters on a cook top, why there is a Heavy Duty button on the dishwasher and why the crisper door on the fridge is the best place to keep the lettuce! Think personal shopper meets appliance expert meets new best friend! Setting up your FREE appointment is easy. Simply go to Sears.com and click the Meet With an Expert and schedule your appointment. You will get a confirmation call back to confirm your meeting. The appointment with the Expert does not require a purchase and you will get a follow up email reminding you of things you talked about while you make your now, very educated, decision! You can use this shopping recap to shop at home or, when you know which appliance you want, head back to the store to purchase with ease.

Purchasing appliances is SUCH a huge decision. I knew nothing about them when I picked my stove top. I knew the size I needed and my budget but, with a Sears Expert by my side, I might have known more about some features or tips that would make it even more of a perfect fit for my lifestyle.

There are so many services that you just can not get anywhere else that I have been telling you guys about for a while. If you are like me, heading to the store is difficult. With three kids in tow, the school schedule to work around, holiday shows upon us and and end of year tests coming, it is harder and harder for me to go and roam around Sears. So I love the Reserve It service they have. Just go online, choose items you want to try on, like cocktail dresses and shoes, and head to the Reserve It sign in Sears Women’s Apparel Section to pick up everything you want, in the sizes and colors you choose, to try on instantly! This combination of online shopping and real life shopping is perfect for those of us on a very tight schedule.

I have used, and deeply appreciate, the In-Vehicle Pick Up, service as well. Now, though, Sears has expended this super popular feature to include Returns and Exchanges! That’s right. You do not even have to get out of your car, waking the sleeping baby or interrupting the drive home to get that errand done. In less than 5 minutes your purchases will be delivered, taken back or exchanged right at the curb.

Another fantastic service Sears provides to make the Holiday season more jolly for us all is the Anyone, Anywhere Pickup! Order whatever you want online and have it all sent to one specific store. Then you, or someone you designate on the site or Shop Your Way app, can swing by and pick the items up with no fuss. This is such an easy way to get what you want where you want it giving you more time for yourself and less time driving store to store.
