I know that my son is going to grow and need bigger clothes and shoes. And I seem to have this irrational fear that he’ll wake up one morning having outgrown everything in his closet, and of course it will be the month that we have ZERO wiggle room in our budget for anything extra, let alone enough money to buy groceries. So about a year ago I started stocking up on larger clothes and shoes when I came across good deals and sales. I figure $20 bucks or so every month should at least help ease my mind. With Shop Your Way my $20 goes a lot farther.
Here’s just one example of the awesome savings. Osh Kosh toddler shoes, Carter’s 4 piece PJs and a 2 piece long sleeve firetruck outfit for $19.87. The shoes retail for $19.99, the PJs retail for $32 and the firetruck outfit retails for $10. Add it all up, that is a 78% savings.
Now I’ll admit, Sears and Kmart didn’t exactly jump to mind when I thought of places to shop for clothes or shoes. I’d say Macy’s probably fit my idea better, but I am NOT willing to pay Macy’s prices. So imagine my surprise when I found some of my favorite kid’s brands at Sears… Osh Kosh, Carter’s, Toughskins, Disney, etc. And the brand options for adults were just as surprising. Clearly I was mistaken to assume that Sears was the old man of department stores.
Here’s another example. After I ordered the shoes from the photo above, I decided that they are of fabulous quality and are such a great deal that I should get more in bigger sizes (I know, I’m obsessed). Imagine my surprise when I logged into my account and found surprise points, plus points I had earned from a previous order. These two pairs of shoes were FREE!
So, here’s how it works. Sign up. It’s completely free. Often you’ll get free points as a thank you for signing up. Shop at Kmart or Sears in store or online, and be sure to use your Shop Your Way membership number. You earn points on every item you purchase, of various value but typically related to the dollar amount. In addition, a few times a month they send you “surprise” points that you can use to redeem on your purchases. Just yesterday I got a friendly email telling me that I had $7 in surprise points waiting for me. The best part: they let you stack earned points, surprise points, sales and coupon codes.
So for the two pairs of shoes above, here’s the breakdown:
- Each on sale for $9.99, regularly $19.99= $19.98
- 15% off coupon code= $16.99
- $10 in surprise points= $6.99
- $6.99 in earned points from previous purchases= FREE!
