How about an $8 ottoman?

If you’re wondering why things are kinda quiet over here, it’s because I post deals a few times a week via my Unveiled Savings Facebook group. It’s a bit quicker to access and respond to questions, and I have continual contact with members on my mobile device.

In case you aren’t a client and member of the group, I thought I’d share this bargain to give you a glimpse into what you’re missing! Just select me as your Personal Shopper to be invited to the group right away. Remember that the service is 100% complimentary and includes all the custom bargain hunts you need. It’d be my pleasure!

Head over to Kmart for this deal. Don’t forget to shop through a portal to make it even better. If you haven’t used the $15 back on $30 bonus, that would make this A FREE OTTOMAN if you purchase and redeem a Kmart gift card!

Don’t miss deals like this – become a client today!

$15 Back on $30 Gift Cards + Other…

I’ve become an enormous fan of Kmart and Sears over the last year because they run amazing offers like this on a regular basis.

Simply spend $30 at any of the participating merchants (exclusions at the bottom of this post) and receive $15 back in points – yes, that’s 50% if you hit $30 right on the nose. To be safe, make sure you’re at $30 before tax and shipping. Offer expires 3/26.

Get a nice discount at your favorite store.

Aside from offers like Fandango (Beauty & The Beast, anyone?), one of my favorite participating merchants is Raise.com. Raise is a gift card reseller. So while the fine print listed below says that Sears and Kmart are not participating vendors, you can still go to Raise and buy a Sears or Kmart gift card at a 6-7% discount, receive your 8% back in points plus the $15 back bonus*, and then use that gift card online. Naturally, you’d shop through the portal of your choice to redeem that gift card, right?

Double dip in one step!

Let’s break it into steps, assuming you’re looking to shop at Sears/Kmart but knowing that this works on any gift card at Raise.com OR any of the participating vendors at syweverywhere.com:

How to Maximize This Promotion:

  1. Become my client! It is a complimentary service and only takes a minute to keep this blog running. Thank you!
  2. Go to syweverywhere.com
  3. Click through to Raise.com
  4. New to Raise? Check RetailMeNot.com or others for a $5 discount code for new members. This MAY invalidate your bonus, but I consider that highly unlikely. I’d take the chance.
  5. Spend at least $30 (if you buy a $30 gift card that is discounted 10% to $27, you have not spent $30!)
  6. Receive a $15 Shop Your Way credit in the next 10 days, valid for 60 days.
  7. Navigate to CashBackMonitor.com to pick the shopping portal of your choice for Sears/Kmart.
  8. Navigate to Sears/Kmart via the shopping portal of your choice.
  9. Redeem your gift card on the merchandise of your choosing (you might want to wait for that $15 bonus to post so you can redeem the $30 + $15 all at once – bigger orders tend to trigger surprise points, free shipping, etc.)

You will earn $15 back on $30, 8% back on the purchase price of your gift card (yes, in addition to the bonus) plus whatever shopping portal credit you select in redeeming your gift card. If you need help picking out offers or finding coupons, don’t hesitate to ask!

How will you take advantage of this promotion?

I’m going to keep it simple and order a Publix gift card. It’s listed at $31.81, which is only 2% off, but I’ll take a $15 bonus from Shop Your Way any day of the week!

EDIT: My points posted!

Hope you’ll take advantage of this great offer:

$15 back on $30!

Here’s the fine print and that * item:

*Raise says they won’t pay out any points back or bonuses once you spend more than $5,000 with them. I’m almost there and will update if they actually enforce this restriction.

“Member offer: Earn $15 back in points when you spend $30 on qualifying purchases, valid March 20th, 2017 – March 26th, 2017. Limit one (1) offer per member. Points awarded after gift cards and discounts, and before taxes and other fees are applied. Offer cannot be combined with other Shop Your Way promotions. Void if purchase is cancelled or returned. Must initiate offer online through ShopYourWay.com, SYWEverywhere.com, or at participating in-store locations. Points may require up to 10 days to be awarded and will expire within 60 days of the purchase date. Not valid for Sears, Kmart, Lands’ End, and the following partners: Energy Plus, LifeLock, Lingo, local restaurants, Sears licensed businesses, Sirva Home Benefits, and Sirva Mortgage. Offer valid for original recipient only. We reserve the right to cancel or modify the offer at any time in the event of 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.”

Fan Shop Gear – *Up To* Free After Points!

Remember last week’s post about the $15 back on $15 clearance?

Kmart has added a TON of NCAA/NFL/MLB gear to the promotion! Here’s the catalog for Clemson gear (as I am a proud Clemson alum) and a link to much of the qualifying merchandise. Keep in mind the limit is 50,000 points per member and the expiration is January 29…however, a chat representative tells me the limit is just PER PURCHASE. The deal appears to work in $15 increments, so aim for $15, $30, or $45 to maximize your deal.

Use a $5 off $25 or $5 off $50 if you pass that mark – just be careful how it affects your points back. If you don’t have a coupon, let me know in the comments, email, or through the Personal Shopper page.

If you’re looking for a specific team (or teams), I am happy to build custom catalogs for any of my clients.

Please consider adding me as your Personal Shopper, even if you don’t need guidance or coupons. I receive a commission on every purchase my clients make, and it really makes a difference – thank you so much!!

Don’t forget to shop through a portal – if you’re new to those, I’d appreciate your joining through my affiliate links.

Last Day! Great Kmart Offers!

This is the content of an email that went out to my Personal Shopper Clients this morning. Join now to be notified first!

“Good morning,

I thought I’d try to share this information via email before I post it to the website (www.unveiledsavings.com). If you don’t want to receive deals like this via email, please let me know and I’ll be sure to remove you from the distribution list.

Today I’ll show you…$5 giant jugs of detergent, $6 for a folding table and chairs, $3.25 athletic tshirts…

I am going to populate three catalogs for the three Kmart deals listed below, but wanted to get this out ASAP to give you a chance to shop. Remember – you want to go to kmart.com and be sure to only shop for Kmart items (not Sears!) You can find the catalogs here: http://www.shopyourway.com/people/christine-g/3248992/catalogs

First promotion is for Arm & Hammer Detergent at Target

Two promotions currently stack at Target:

  • $15 off $50 on cleaning supplies with code “CLEAN” – a great deal by itself, amounting for 30% off!
  • $5 gift card with the purchase of two participating Arm & Hammer products – http://www.target.com/pl/504604870

If you purchase six of the detergents ($8 x 6) that’s $48. Add a filler item (I added dryer sheets for $5 though I could have found something closer to $2) the math looks like this:

  • Detergent, $48
  • Dryer Sheets, $5
  • Cost: $53
  • CLEAN: -$15
  • Discounted Total: $45
  • Receive three $5 Gift Cards

You will spend $45 and receive $15 back for future shopping. For $30, you’ll have a ton of detergent and dryer sheets (or whatever you choose.) Regular price would be $53 or more, depending on which you choose, so this is like a 40% discount.

Thanks to my friend Cassidy for finding this great promotion!

Second promotion is for Furniture at Kmart

This may be the last day, but Kmart is offering 50% back in points, up to 100,000 points, on furniture plus a few other great offers. There are a few deals that stack, so here’s how it works out:

  • 10% off $50+ with code “NEWYEAR”
  • $10 back in points on $30 or $20 back on $50
  • 50% back in points up to $100 worth of points

Here’s an item that qualifies for the points promotion but not the 10% off.

My total is $54.99 and I will receive $49.14 back in points!

http://www.kmart.com/essential-home-5-piece-card-table-and-chairs/p-00893176000P

If you find an item that will make your total $50 or more, you can use the $5 off $50 at Kmart coupon (click your name, go to my clipped coupons, and find it there…or let me know and I will send you one via the Personal Shopper site). **NOTE** If you use it on this item, you will only qualify for the $10 back on $30.

Third promotion is for Athletic Apparel at Kmart

Combine the following two offers for essentially 75% back on up to $100 worth of athletic apparel:

  • $10 back on $20, up to $50 worth
  • Buy one, get one free

Here’s an item that qualifies. I bought four at $10.99 each, but with the buy one get one…that’s only $21. I will receive $10 back in points, which is like paying $11 for four tshirts that were each $11 to to start with!

http://www.kmart.com/everlast-reg-sport-women-s-athletic-t-shirt-dots/p-027VA88031012P?selectedFilters=offer|Buy%20One%20Get%20One&sellerId=KMART&prdNo=10&blockNo=10&blockType=G10

Fourth promotion is for Clearance Apparel at Kmart

Tricky to find anything in stock, but you’ll get $15 back on each $15 you spent at Kmart on clearance apparel. Here’s the link to clearance.

It appears that adding up to $15 qualifies. The limit is $50 worth of points (50,000). I found that this item qualifies – if I add three to my cart for a total or $18, I receive $15 back in points.

http://www.kmart.com/joe-boxer-junior-s-polo-shirt/p-027VA88938612P?selectedFilters=offer|Clearance&plpSellerId=Kmart&prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=G3

What else?

Your best portal promotion (what? Read more here) is probably iconsumer.com, but you can choose from cashbackmonitor.com.

I’ll be available via the Clientele app and email today to help you take advantage of these promotions.

Please feel free to forward my email and ask your pals to choose me as their personal shopper – http://syw.co/1SGiTGp. Have a great weekend – stay warm and good luck with your deal shopping!

Spend $30, Donate Three Pairs of Shoes, Receive $55 in Sears Credit YMMV

It’s a great time of year to be thinking about other people. In this promotion, it’s definitely a win-win: you can donate three pairs of shoes and earn all of your money in store credit (less tax) back PLUS a $25 bonus in Shop Your Way Rewards. Truth be told, I can’t figure out how they get to $55 (the original post said $40 and that made sense) but no complaints here!

The two items that I’m positive are participating are the Batman and Spiderman shoes.

You’ll notice where it says in yellow “Special Offers…” click the drop down to confirm 100% Back in Points plus a $10 bonus when you spend $30.

Simply add three pairs of shoes and you will earn $40 back in points. See how mine says I’ll earn around $10 back in points? That’s because I have already purchased my $30 worth (it’s a once per member deal.) Yours should show $40! (Edit: I don’t know why it is $55, but yahoo!)

Your points are valid 12/12-12/18 only. Don’t forget to use them! If you don’t have a Sears or Kmart nearby, consider stocking up on paper towels, garbage bags, or other consumables and having them delivered right to your door; shipping is free on $30 purchases. Perfect, right?

If you don’t have time to pick up and donate or don’t have a Sears/Kmart nearby, you can choose “Pick Up In Store” and use Fort Walton Beach, FL (zip code 32548). Use “Unveiled Savings” as the name of the person picking up your order and email me when it’s ready. It would be my privilege to help you participate in this deal.

Happy Holidays!!!!

 

Make the Deal Better for You

Choose a shopping portal (a what?) to get a little bonus when you shop.

Make the Deal Better for Me…and You, Too!

If you like this kind of promotion, considering adding me as your personal shopper, which is a one-time, 60-second activity. I’ll be able to send you a bonus coupon for $5 off $25, which should work with this promotion.

Yes, Sears pays me a commission, which helps cover the expenses of the site.

Wondering if this deal is really about the shoes? The most Sears will pay me is $0.90. You decide.

Help Homeless Pets for Free (After Points)

Kmart is running a promotion (expiration date unknown) for $5 back in points on a $5 purchase from the Home department.

$5 Promotion at Kmart

If you want, you can certainly go ahead and choose $5 worth of products for your own home. That would be smart. But it might cost you a couple dollars in shipping, so opt for an in-store pickup when you add merchandise to your cart.

If you’d like to help with the donation project, here’s a way to give a shelter animal a gift.

  • Start at cashbackmonitor.com for a couple bonus points through the portal of your choice (read about portals here)
  • Pick one or two of the blankets from this catalog (spend $5 minimum)
  • Use code “CYBER” to get 10% off and a 5,000 point bonus in Shop Your Way Rewards worth $5.

Feel free to donate to your local shelter (either ship to your home, ship directly to the local shelter, or use in store pickup – whichever you prefer.) If the shipping costs are prohibitive or you don’t have a store, feel free to use the Fort Walton Beach, FL store and I will be so happy to pick up your order and donate it on your behalf. Just put “Unveiled Savings” when it asks who’s picking up your order and email me a heads-up.

If you’re wondering what to do with your $5, keep in mind that most Kmart stores carry tons of consumables – groceries, paper products, toiletries. Shop Your Way Rewards even offers coupons for these products.

Don’t hesitate to comment or contact me with any questions you have. I’d love to go pick up 100 fuzzy blankets for our four legged friends.

From me and my rescue mutts to you and yours…happy holidays!

 

PS If you’re interested in hearing about these offers, receiving coupons directly to your Shop Your Way account or email, and personalized money-saving opportunities, please add me as your Personal Shopper. Disclosure: Sears pays me a 1% commission – thank you in advance!

Massive 100% Back in Points, In Store Only – YMMV

While I was waiting on my $4.99 Sears oil change and tire rotation (VIP Platinum perks!!) I was surprised to see the Craftsman Bolt On Attachments with a “100% Back in Points” sign. I asked an employee if the promotion was current. From my previous post, these were 100% Back in Points online…now, they appear to be 100% Back in Points in-store. Your store’s promotions may vary significantly, so I apologize in advance if I get your hopes up and your store isn’t participating.

With this finding, I asked if there were any other 100% Back in Points promotions going on. I was told ‘yes’ and passed around a few employees who were all very willing to help find what the offers. Three employees later, I was shown a 22 page (!!!!) spreadsheet listing items that were all 100% Back in Points. This promotion began 11/30 and runs through December, but very few of the items were tagged on their shelves. I took a handful of photos of the categories I was interested in, rather than drag the employee around the store with the list, and started hunting. An hour later, I had accumulated around $275 worth of products that were all 100% Back in Points. Note that many of the items had small blue square “100% Back in Points” tags, so be on the lookout. Here are a few hasty photos of my treasures:

Sears Blue Hangtag

img_0154
Free Garden Tools
Sears 100% Back in Points
Free Kitchen Products
Sears 100% Back in Points
Free Extension Cords

 

There were items everywhere! Here’s a list which is at least partly available in the catalog here:

  • dish and bath towels
  • Libby glassware
  • Butter dishes, salt and pepper shakers, square bowls and serving trays
  • Pyrex baking dish
  • Kenmore loaf pan, kitchen tools, Oxo kitchen tools, french fry basket (heehee)
  • Craftsman garden tools
  • Air fresheners
  • Dazzle jewelry cleaner
  • Neoprene hand weighs
  • extension cords
  • LED flashlights
  • Pillow cases and twin sheet sets
  • Shoelaces and insoles
  • Pool and table tennis accessories
  • Spark plugs (and things that don’t make sense to me)
  • Bike accessories
  • Yoga products

I expect that all items will be marked in the next day or so, but you may have some luck checking in with a friendly Sears employee.

Important details:

  • Offer valid 11/30/2017-12/30/2017.
  • Points probably do not roll, but good luck if you try!
  • Points are valid for 30 days.
  • There does not appear to be a spending cap – my $275 purchase resulted in $285 worth of points (thanks, Sears!)

What do I do with all of these points?

If you’re wondering what to do with all of those points, remember that they have an extensive auto center. Sears and Kmart are affiliates, so you can do your grocery shopping for a few weeks and use up those points. I like to order consumables (paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, garbage bags, etc.) At the very least, consider this a “buy one, get one” promotion – if you buy one $5 item and get 100% back in points, you can go spend that $5 in points on a second item. That’s two $5 items ($10 value) for only $5. Not that you will generally not earn points on a purchase that is paid for with points!

Can I save even more on this purchase?

Before you go…for the latest on great promotions, please consider selecting me as your personal shopper. I’ll send you coupons that can make this deal even better – such as a $15 off $150 purchase, which sweetens the deal! Plus, you’ll help me earn a very (itty bitty) commission, which helps cover the costs of running this site. I appreciate it! I’ll help you load coupons to your account if you don’t already know how to do that (there are directions around the blog, but the short version…go to shopyourway.com, click “Rewards” then “Coupons” and start loading!)

Don’t forget – if you have an American Express card, check out your offers for a $10 back on $50 purchase. You’ll get the $10 credit on your account plus all $50 back in points!

Any luck?

Did your store have any great promotions going on? What did you find?

Craftsman Tools, Better-Than-Free After Points!

I love these deals!

I’ve added all of the items that are free after points to this catalog (please consider adding me as your personal shopper – I’ll earn a 2% commission on your purchase from Sears, which is such a nice way for you to give me a thumbs up on this deal.)

Here’s how it adds up:

Total Price: ~$450

SYWR Points Earned: ~$480

Coupons Applied: $20 off $150 and $20 in surprise points

You can make the deal better by starting at cashbackmonitor.com and picking a portal to shop through. I was unable to redeem gift cards on this purchase without severely reducing the cash back…this doesn’t make any sense and 45 minutes on the phone with customer service didn’t get me anywhere. I shopped through British Airways as we are in the midst of planning a spring vacation and paid with my Discover card to earn 5% back with the category bonus (don’t forget to activate this perk!) You should be able to count this as an additional $25 in savings.

What am I going to do with the points I received?

I’m going to buy the main body of this tool, which is currently on sale for $80. I might order some consumables – garbage bags, laundry detergent, etc – from Kmart. Or, I’ll just shop around for items to sell on Amazon/eBay/craigslist (I’ll share what I find.) We also recently purchased shelving units for about $45 and are looking for a few more, I need an iPad mini for my drone, and we’re hoping to pick up an end-of-season clearance set of patio furniture. I guess that’s the great thing about Sears and Kmart – we’re always finding something the house needs.

I don’t need this stuff!

These items appear to be popular on eBay and Amazon. You can likely sell them for ~$200, plus Sears is going to give you more store credit back than you spent in the first place. You could also donate the whole kit and write it off. At the very least, it’s an easy $500 on your credit card and the cash back can be used on almost anything at Sears/Kmart.

Good luck!

 

Free (After Points) Headphones Etc At Sears!

They keep saying there aren’t any good deals at Sears…that’s because “they” aren’t using Unveiled Savings as their personal shopper!

If you buy the items pictured below, you’ll get them ‘free after points.’ This means you’ll pay the ~$75 out of pocket and receive back the equivalent of ~$75 in points. You’ll need to use three promotions, which should automatically be added to your cart if you are a Shop Your Way member. A chat representative will be able to provide coupon codes if you need them. In the interest of time, I’ll leave you to search for those deals on your own (from Sears.com, hover over “Your Account” then “Your Clipped Coupons” and/or go to shopyourway.com, hover over “Rewards” and click “Coupons.”)

Item Numbers 05750096000, 05727219000, 05737562000, 05727220000 (in no particular order) – for your convenience, I’ve made a catalog so you can add them directly to your cart (plus you’ll have to manually add the TV Cleaning Kit):
