**I am an honored member of the Sears Blogger Squad. I will bring you special deals, honest opinions and news on how Sears can save you money, like this piece on 5 Shopping Tips. All opinions are my own.** #SearsDays #Sears #ad
As a mom of three growing girls whose fashion wants change faster than their crushes, I need to be smart about how I spend my money and where I spend it. For years now, as you know since you are all loyal followers, I have depended on Sears to satisfy not only my girls changing styles, but my pocketbook as well. One reason I love them so much is all of the convenient ways to shop. From in-store to online, IN Vehicle Pick up to my text messages with point alerts from Shop Your Way, Sears has the whole package that keeps the whole family happy! Nicole Lapin, author, TV personality and personal finance expert, agrees with me that getting the most out of your shopping dollars is key! Her 5 Shopping Tips are smart and helpful to any family!
Join FREE Loyalty Programs
Sears’ loyalty program is Shop Your Way. It is free to join and utilize and the benefits are vast. I have been a Shop Your Way member for years and have saved so much money that I am always surprised that I don’t pay for the service. These programs are especially helpful when you want to make big purchases like appliances or a new tool bench. Programs like the Sears’ Shop Your Way program give back at least 1% in points value with each purchase, plus surprise points throughout the year. It’s like discovering free money in your wallet! I LOVE it and it, literally, has no down side.
Celebrate Shopping ‘Holidays’ are great Shopping Tips!
There are sales and then there are shopping ‘holidays’. We all know that most stores run sales a lot. But with those special ‘holidays’, like Sears Days going on now through April 8, you get more bang for your buck, more loyalty points and deeper discounts on things you need anyway. Shopping ‘holidays’ are a shopping spree must! Check out everything that #SearsDays can offer you!
Use Your Points before You Lose Them
As Nicole points out, ‘Points are like vacation days – you’ve earned them, so use them!’. Don’t be one of those people who loses thousands of points a year! With the Sears’ Shop Your Way program, the points are linked to your account and can be used anytime, on any purchase. It’s a no-brainer. Just enter your account when you check out and, wala, your points are applied instantly!
You should choose your reward; not the other way around
There is no point in joining a program at a store that you do not shop. We are all going to shop Sears for deals, savings and quality items so it makes sense to sign up for Shop Your Way Rewards. But even better, Sears is not the only store that you can use it at! The Sears Shop Your Way marketplace lets you earn qualifying points not only at Sears, Kmart and Sears Auto Center, but also with such partners as Uber, Groupon, Hilton and hundreds more! How cool is that?
Take advantage of deals online and in-store
We are a busy people. I, for one, can barely remember from day to day what I am supposed to be doing sometimes. So, I sometimes miss out on deals and online savings that really could have come in handy. The great thing about Sears is that they offer seamless integration between the in-store, mobile and online shopping experiences, so I know I am getting the best deal whether I am logged in or stopping by in person.
Sears makes shopping, picking up and saving easier than any other store I shop! Now, with Sears Days going strong, I am stocking up my my kids summer clothing. Of course, I will have to take them with me because mom has no style. Lucky for me, all three are always happy with the ‘cool stuff’ Sears always has in stock!
