How to get the most out of your ShopYourWay Rewards

Membership is free!

Shop Your Way is a shopping platform where you purchase items from different retailers and similar to Ebates in the sense that you get cash back as rewards points. SYW partners include Sears, Sears Auto Center, Kmart, Land’s End and more!

Check out this video for a quick tour! As a free Shop Your Way member, you get access to a free personal shopper! Personal shoppers help save client’s time and money. You will get personalized coupons, savings and recommendations you can’t get anywhere else!  Visit for more information, or to sign up for your free Shop Your Way membership and personal shopper!

There is a point system called rewards points. You receive these points by purchasing items at Kmart, Sears or other Shop Your Way affiliated stores. You can also receive points by entering in sweepstakes, playing the instant win games or WinIt app or receiving FREECASH/Surprise points.

  • If you are not already a member, you can sign up for free here: I highly recommend a separate “sweepstakes” email. This website will send you emails to look out for that will contain extra sweepstakes entries. For the first 90 days of membership you get free 2-day shipping.
  • Once you become a member you can navigate to the Earn tab at the top and click on earn with sweeps. I see on average 50 sweepstakes going at any given time. There will be different ones and you can choose which ones to enter in. The instant win games will give you a chance to win points and some will allow you to pick the prize of the sweepstakes.
  • Check out my instant win game win! I won a new gas range and it was delivered for free too! 

Read the fine print on Surprise points.

When you receive your surprise points and you are ready to use them, make sure to check the terms and conditions of each surprise. Often times they will require you to use them for a specific department. Some may not allow you to use them on clearance as well. There may be surprise points that allow you to use them towards any purchase, just make sure you meet the purchase price requirement to redeem. Either way, it will still save you some money, especially if you are already going to purchase those items anyway.

Other benefits of being a Shop Your Way member

  • There will be member sales only. Just yesterday I logged on to find that items in the HOME section was an additional 15% off just for members!
  • You can clip coupons right on the website, for example one might be for $10.00 of $100.00 purchase. Certain specific items or departments will have a coupon towards money off for those items. There may be times where you cannot combine coupons with points. Just way the difference on using either/or and you will still get a savings.
  • You may be offered to choose from free 2-day shipping or free economy shipping (and earn $1.00 in points for choosing economy.) At times you may need to purchase $30.00 or more to qualify for free shipping. I’ve only come across this once and the items were available for pick-up, so I chose not to have it shipped.
  • Kmart does have online layaway! I take advantage of it for Christmas and have been for the last 2 years. You get 8 weeks to pay off the layaway contracts at bi-weekly payments.
  • Watch for deals a couple months before Christmas, they usually offer $1.00 down layaways and I have taken advantage of this. Works great if something is on sale or clearance and you know you can pay it off within that 8 weeks. You can also pay off early, and as soon as final payment is received they start to process your order.

I hope all this information will you get the most out of the website. I have saved around $1,000 or more since I have been a member. VIP members get access to $4.99 oil change coupons and 100% cashback on tool purchase surprise coupons! There are so many perks to being a free Shop Your Way member!
