PALO ALTO, CALIF. – (November 14, 2016) – Activehours and Shop Your Way, a business unit of Sears Holdings (NASDAQ: SHLD), announced a strategic partnership today that integrates the Shop Your Way rewards program into the Activehours mobile application. The Activehours application allows people to access their pay the day they earn it, rather than waiting for a paycheck.
“Activehours offers a unique benefit for our Shop Your Way members. This partnership allows us to make a difference in our members’ financial lives by providing instant access to their pay the day they’ve earned it,” said Terry Rolecek, president, Shop Your Way Financial Services for Sears Holdings. “By integrating the Shop Your Way program with Activehours, we provide our members with the convenience of purchasing products and services when they need them rather than having to wait for a paycheck which has already been earned.”
As Shop Your Way members and associates within the Sears Holdings family of companies access their pay through Activehours, they will receive Shop Your Way points which may be redeemed online or in-store at Sears and Kmart. Existing Shop Your Way members can take advantage of this new benefit starting today by linking their accounts to the Activehours app at shopyourway.com/activehours/earn-at-activehours or activehours.com/shopyourway. Existing Activehours customers who sign up for a free Shop Your Way membership at activehours.com/shopyourway will automatically earn points on their next Activehours cash out.
“The Activehours app makes paychecks lightning fast, intelligent and now, they are even worth more,” said Ram Palaniappan, founder of Activehours. “It’s refreshing to strategically partner with a company such as Sears Holdings that understands the benefit of offering their associates and Shop Your Way members a service that allows them to receive wages in real-time. We’re excited to welcome the tens of millions of Shop Your Way members to the Activehours community.”
With Activehours, users get more power and flexibility in how and when they’re paid. Additionally, employers benefit as employees report improved attendance and reduced stress. Activehours is currently working with people employed by more than 10,000 companies, including Sears Holdings.
