HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Tapping reward points for
holiday purchases is like finding change under the sofa cushions, and Shop
Your Way members don't have to dig far as they've earned millions in points to
spend at Sears and Kmart. With just nine days left before Christmas, Shop Your
Way points will help stretch holiday shopping budgets to snap up great deals
on last-minute gifts.

"People may not think of their reward points as a real value that can be used
for merchandise –but it's like a hidden piggy bank," said Andrea Woroch,
nationally recognized consumer trends analyst and money-saving expert. "Be
sure to use your points before they expire. After all, the best part about
having reward points at this time of the holiday season is that with so many
great deals available you can save more and get more."

The significant amount of Shop Your Way points available to members – some of
which expire in the next 30 to 60 days – is partly a result of the first-ever
Shop Your Way Holiday Bonus offer from Sears. The offer gives members up to 10
percent back in points on purchases made with a Sears credit card or three
percent back in points when using any other form of payment. The Holiday Bonus
offer points expire on Jan. 31, 2014.

As Christmas quickly approaches, shoppers who visit Sears and Kmart in-store,
online or via mobile have a variety of shipping and pickup options to get
packages to their destination in time for the holidays. Both retailers offer
free two-day shipping options on qualifying online and mobile orders this
holiday for Shop Your Way MAX members and on all customer purchases of $59 or
more. Shipping orders received by 4 p.m. on Dec. 21 will arrive by Dec. 24,
with expedited options available thereafter. As always, most online purchases
at, and are available for Free Store
Pickup or Free Anyone, Anywhere Pickup(SM) through Christmas Eve.

"Our integrated shopping conveniences let members take the stress out of
last-minute holiday shopping," said Imran Jooma, executive vice president,
Sears Holdings. "Even if you miss a shipping deadline and want to shop online,
Sears and Kmart have special hours and the ability to pick up your online
purchase at the store, right up to the last minute."
