Okay, so I know I wrote about this a few weeks ago, but their still seems to be a little confusion about how this works. ShopYourWay is a FREE program from Sears & Kmart where you are awarded points for purchases. However, they also offer surprise points occasionally just for signing up. After you sign up, you will occasionally receive free surprise points via email and/or your ShopYourWay account. You can then use these points to get FREE or almost FREE items. For example, I have gotten cheap or FREE baby cereal, Oreos, kid’s clothing, socks, frying pan, soccer shin guards, and the list goes on and on.

Plus, if you have a FitBit or other supported device, you can register at FitStudio with your ShopYourWay account information, where you can earn even more points for taking steps, sharing content and more. I usually earn at least $5 in points on a weekly basis.

Plus, don’t forget to make me your FREE personal shopper and I will occasionally send you coupons as they become available.

Check out my other post on the ShopYourWay program found here.

Yesterday, I wrote a post about How to get Kids Clothes for Free or Almost Free. I promised a few follow-ups, one of which was learning more about Shop Your Way Points through Sears and Kmart. I thought today would be the perfect day to do a follow up as I just received $5 in surprise points this morning. The only string attached was that it had to be spent on clothing at Sears (sometimes they have other qualifiers)! WOOHOO! That means I can pick out clothing for myself, my husband, or my kids for $5 for FREE. Plus, I can get FREE in store pick-up (if available). Yes, you heard it, absolutely FREE clothes for just being a member. Did I mention this program is FREE to sign up for!!! Plus, you can add me as your personal shopper and I can send you extra coupons as they become available. All for FREE.

Also, as you shop through Sears and Kmart, you earn points for your purchases.

Plus, if you are interested in earning more points, you can add a Fitbit or other eligible devices and participate in the FitStudio program where you can get additional points for activity. I generally earn $5-$7 in SYW points on a weekly basis. I use this to get baby cereal, auto supplies, Oreos (my husband loves these), clothes, and so much more at Kmart and Sears. Nothing like FREE!

So, if you haven’t signed up…why not?? Sign up here.

Let us know what you buy with your SYW points in the comments below. Also, if you received FREE Surprise points this morning, let us know what you received.
