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:
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.
- 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!
