UPDATE: Out of stock

This morning I stumbled upon these Nakamichi BT Headphones at Sears.com that appear to be offering Shop Your Way Rewards members 160% back in points.  Specifically, for $49.99, you get $80.49 in points.  Limit 2 per order.

The problem is that Sears won’t let me check out!  Every time I try to complete my order, I’m taken back to the shopping cart.  Anyone know a workaround?

  1. That has happened to me plenty before. Its usally when they are out of stock but they havent updated the website to say so. Only work around would be to try and choose store pick up or try a different store if you already have.

  2. You are being looped back because its oos. Thats how the sears site deals with them. Also, here are the terms of the points back:

    Members get 80% back in points when you purchase Nakamichi headphones. Bonus pts earned on this offer expire 90 days from date of receipt. Maximum 80,000 Points per Member.

    Valid through December 14, 2014 0:59am CDT

    Which means it is miscalculating the points back, and is highly likely for a clawback if you even manage to check out. Sears deals nowadays are just not good deals unless you already have a planned purchase there and want to get a few free things on the side. The program has changed drastically in the last year to prevent abusive behavior. Ive had accounts banned even from just following the rules of their promotions. Im kind of surprised you even post about these deals, I love your site, but promoting sears/kmart points deals that are very risky in nature due to the SYW program, lets call them, inefficiencies, is just not a good idea.

    • Thanks for that info. I’ve done really well with promos like these in the past several months, but I did have to beg for the points owed to me. If they claw back points or ban accounts I can see why you wouldn’t want to pursue it anymore!

  3. I ordered two pairs of these with a gift card during the 6x Milege Plan promo for in-store pickup. It was showing 40,000 bonus points per pair so I bought one, then used the points (minus one point) to buy the other, and then used those points to buy another item that I will give as a Christmas present.

  4. Unfortunatly they have been sold out for a couple days. Purchased 8 pairs when they were on sale for 49.99 with 40.10 back in points. Will make good christmas gifts! Hopefully they stock back up soon! Would make a good item to flip for points.
