This is the year that I’ve finally convinced my husband to let me remodel the house. We live in a small (by cozy) home built in the 50’s, and I know it has some major potential to look better. Much better. We’re planning a big vacation this Summer, so I’m going to have to be thrifty when it comes to the house. Nicole Lapin, author, TV personality and personal finance expert is giving us five ways to maximize our purchases:
If your favorite retailer offers a free loyalty rewards program, join it! It might seem very Captain Obvious, but you can’t enjoy the perks if you’re not a member of the club. Free rewards programs are the best way to ensure you’re first in line for merchandise exclusives and savings (which is especially helpful when you’re looking to buy those bigger household items). Programs like the Sears’ Shop Your Way program give back at least 1% in points value with each purchase, plus surprise points throughout the year. It’s like discovering free money in your wallet!
Celebrate the shopping “holidays.” Sales happen all the time – but not all sales are created equal. Plan out your shopping spree like a boss by recognizing the best time to buy. This not only saves you money, but can double or even triple your points value. If you’re itching to get some spring shopping done, make sure to mark your calendar for Sears Days March 26 to April 8. Discounts and deals will be offered in every department, from appliances to spring fashion & more. Plus, Shop Your Way members can earn more rewards during the event!
When it comes to points, use them or lose them. Points are like vacation days – you’ve earned them, so use them! People lose out on thousands of dollars each year in unredeemed loyalty points. With the Sears’ Shop Your Way program, the points are linked to your account and can be used anytime, on any purchase. It’s a no-brainer.
You should choose your reward; not the other way around. A retail loyalty program is only as good as its perks, so you might as well join one that rewards you where you actually shop, right? The Sears Shop Your Way marketplace lets you earn qualifying points not only at Sears, Kmart and Sears Auto Center, but also with such partners as Uber, Groupon, Hilton and hundreds more!
Take advantage of deals online and in-store. With life moving so fast, sometimes it’s hard to plan whether or not you’ll get a chance to stop by a store. Since Sears offers seamless integration between the in-store, mobile and online shopping experiences, you know you’re getting the best deal whether you’re logged in or stopping by in person.
Makes sense to me! Here are the few items I’m looking at for our bathroom and bedroom redesign:
