My husband and I signed up for the Shop Your Way Rewards Program last year and it has been our biggest contributor to purchasing free or close-to-free gifts for birthdays, holidays, Christmas, etc.
Shop Your Way Rewards is the rewards program for Sears, Kmart and Lands End. Without ever spending a cent at any of these store, we have received regular emails of free points — anywhere from $3 to $7, with no minimum purchase.
These points can then be redeemed in-store or online. If you are near a Sears or Kmart, you can purchase an item using points and elect for free store pickup. You can also take advantage of Shop Your Way MAX which gives you 3 months of free shipping.
Additionally, through May 26th, there is an online matching game giving you the opportunity to earn up to 1000 points a day, or 5000 points total. That is $1-$5 in free points! -Jessica
