Kmart and Sears are owned by the same company and both participate in the Shop Your Way Rewards program. To truly take advantage of the Shop Your Way Rewards program (SYWR), you need to have a personal shopper.
When you sign up with me as your personal shopper (it a completely FREE service) you will get 90 days of Shop Your Way Max which gives you FREE shipping on $30+ purchase or if you purchase an item that costs $10+, it will ship for FREE too. You can choose me to be your personal shopper even if you already have a Shop Your Way Rewards account.
Throughout the year, Shop Your Way Rewards sends out surprise points (valued at $1-$10+) to members who are signed up with a personal shopper. I will alert you when surprise points are added to SYWR member accounts so you can spend it immediately on the website or at your local store. This is a great way to score gifts for FREE!
In addition to the perk of free shipping, I send out exclusive store coupons to my clients. The coupons do tend to vary, but they are extra savings just for being a client.
I also email my clients first when there is a really hot deal at Kmart or Sears. That way you are always ahead of the game. You’ll also receive weekly coupon match ups to help you save money in the stores.
I can even help you pick out gifts for upcoming birthdays or Christmas. Let me know their interests and I will pick out some items they might like. I will also notify you if the prices drop so you’ll know when the best time to buy is.
I am available anytime to answer any questions that you have about Shop Your Way Rewards or how to best save at Sears and Kmart. I have been a deal shopper since 2008 and a blogger since August of 2009. Let my years of experience help you save the most money you can.
Here are 13 ways that you can save at Kmart and Sears with your Shop Your Way Rewards account….
Get cash back on ALL your purchases at Kmart, Sears, and many other partner stores
When you participate in the SYWR program, you will earn cashback on all your purchases (in the form of points). When you checkout in the stores, have the cashier look up your SYWR account with your phone number so you will earn cashback on your purchase. If you are shopping online, you will just need to login to your SYWR account. If you are shopping in a partner store, just use your linked debit or credit card. There are so many online or in store participating partners including the Disney Store, Dollar Tree, Lowe’s, and many more.
Using coupons at Kmart
Here are important things to know about using coupons at Kmart:
- Kmart accepts valid manufacturer coupons from the Sunday paper.
- Kmart only accepts printable coupons if they scan at the register.
- Kmart will not accept printable coupons for more than 75% of the products value.
- Kmart will not accept “FREE product” printable coupons
Kmart also has Catalinas and CRT coupons
In addition to earning Shop Your Way Reward points, you will also receive Catalinas or CRT coupons at checkout.
Catalinas print from a special machine located at the register.
- Catalinas will be triggered when you buy certain items, but you can not use that Catalina to pay for an item from the same manufacturer and have another Catalina print. The only exception is if the Catalina that is supposed to print is for a different amount then the catalina you used to pay for the item.
- You can only use one Catalina per transaction but you can use your Shop Your Way Reward points along with it.
CRTs print right after your receipt on the receipt paper.
- If you get a Kmart CRT for “Get $10 in points when you buy $50″ you must spend $50 after all Kmart store coupons are scanned, but you CAN drop below $50 with manufacturer’s coupons and still get your $10 in points.
- If you have Shop Your Way Points which look like this: “Spend $20, get 5,000 points at checkout,” the deal must be over the specified amount AFTER all Kmart Store & member coupons are scanned and BEFORE tax is calculated.
Kmart doubles coupons up to $2 (when advertised)
Throughout the year, Kmart will run advertised promotions for double coupons up to $2 (that means a $2 coupon will double to $4). It is almost always the same week the 1st day of the month falls in and it is usually the same week that P&G releases their coupons in the Sunday paper.
You must have the cashier pull up your SYWR Membership in order for your coupons to double. You can give them your phone number or email to pull up your account, or even scan the barcode of your SYWR app on your phone.
Here are important things to know about doubling coupons at Kmart:
- The amount of credit from doubling a coupon cannot exceed the current retail price of a single item.
- No cash or in-store purchase credit will be awarded for any amount exceeding the retail price of the item.
