HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Following what comScore called "record-breaking" online Cyber Monday sales, retail experts predict that Green Monday, the second Monday of December (Dec. 12), will also experience strong online sales, with estimated industry expectations for the day to top $1 billion according to comScore. Sears Holdings is prepared with great deals to help make customers' "green" go further this Green Monday at both Sears.com and Kmart.com.
Shoppers can take advantage of up to 70 percent off across popular categories available on Sears.com and Kmart.com on more than 500 deals that are as good as Cyber Monday prices. Visit Sears.com and Kmart.com starting 9 p.m. CST on Sunday, Dec. 11 to see special Green Monday pricing.
Shoppers also will be able to take advantage of a variety of extended free shipping* offers. Starting at midnight on Monday on Dec. 12 to 5 p.m. CST, Sears.com will be featuring savings in several categories, plus FREE Shipping on orders $49.99 and up (reduced from $99).
For the customer shopping late, Sears also has extended the shipping deadline. Now through Dec. 21, Sears.com customers can use promo code SHIPREALJOY to receive free shipping on qualified mailable orders totaling more than $99 – and the products will arrive before Christmas.
And finally, for the very last-minute shopper, customers can use our Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store offering that allows customers to shop online, all the way until Christmas Eve. The Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store offering enables them to order online from the comfort of their home and pick up items at their convenience – including the very same day.
Purchases made from Sears.com or through any of our mobile offerings are backed by Sears' Ready in 5 Guarantee, which promises customers that their store pickup orders will be ready within five minutes or they'll be rewarded with a $5 Sears gift card to be used for a future in-store purchase. For added convenience, Sears also offers curbside pickup at select locations.
