Through the end of July, the Sears / Kmart rewards program, SYW (Shop Your Way) Rewards is offering double point earnings for shopping with their partners. Go to www.shopyourway.com/app/11150/l/partners to see which stores qualify.
Two types of partner deals
There are two distinct ways to earn points from SYW partners. One way is to click through to the partner’s website from the SYW Rewards website. This is the same way many online portals work. And, in general, I’d recommend using other portals (such as Discover Deals) before SYW Rewards since SYW points lock you into spending your rewards at Sears, Kmart, and Lands End before the points expire.
The other way to earn points from SYW partners is to link your MasterCard or Visa credit card. Then, when you use that card to pay at select merchants, you’ll automatically earn SYW points. To find these deals, scroll down the SYW partners page and click “Credit & Debit Card”
The special thing about these linked credit card deals is that you can double dip: earn cash back or miles by going through a portal and earn SYW points by paying with your linked credit card. Take 1800Baskets, for example. It should be possible to link a credit card to SYW and go through a portal to increase your rewards. Make sure to pay with your linked credit card to earn 40% back in points. Hint: look for 1800Baskets within the Frequent Miler Laboratory.
Here are the offer’s terms & conditions:
*Offer valid 07/01/2015 – 07/31/2015. Limit one offer per member. Purchase requirement before taxes and after other discounts. Offer not valid at Sears, Kmart, Lands’ End and Sears Marketplace. Points may take up to 40 days to be awarded to member account. Offer valid for original recipient only. We reserve the right to cancel or modify the offer at any time in the event fraud, abuse, unintended virality or if technical or other issues arise. By accepting Shop Your Way member benefits and offers, you agree to the Shop Your Way terms and conditions, available at www.shopyourway.com/terms.
I’m not sure what they mean by “Limit one offer per member”. My guess is that they don’t really mean that you can only earn double points once, but it’s possible.
