Sears and Kmart are delivering holiday in a better way – that means more convenience, integrated retail shopping options and better deals. For example, if a members or customer can't find a product in-store at Sears or Kmart, they can order it in-store and have it shipped to their home for free.
Plus, Kmart's latest smart budgeting solution for the holidays – lease-to-own through Whynot Leasing, LLC – is available nationwide starting Nov. 22. The program gives customers a no- credit-required way to take home products they need or want, right away – including doorbuster items. Also, Sears signature holiday offer will be among the best ever offered to Sears cardholders – Shop Your Way members will earn 10 percent back in reward points on all purchases made with a Sears credit card or 3 percent back in reward points when using any other form of payment. The signature offer begins Nov. 3 and continues through Dec. 26 on the first $1,000 of each qualifying purchase at participating Sears locations and at Sears.com. Reward points expire Jan. 31, 2014.
Kmart has been a destination for early-bird shopping and last-minute entertaining needs on Thanksgiving Day for 22 years. Sears opened its doors for the second time on Thanksgiving Day last year and received an overwhelmingly positive response from members and customers who took advantage of shopping Black Friday deals early. Stores are staffed with seasonal associates and those who have volunteered to work.
Shop Your Way members can not only get a preview of Thanksgiving and Black Friday deals at searslocalad.com or kmartlocalad.com. Shop Your Way, a free members-only program and shopping community powered by Sears Holdings, will reward members with exclusive sales, special member pricing, gas savings offers from Kmart and more.
On top of 24/7 shopping on Kmart.com and Sears.com, customers can shop endless aisles of popular products from big brands on ShopYourWay.com. More than 95 million items are now available, making Sears one of the largest marketplace and commerce solution providers on the web.
