Our Verdict

Hopefully some people have a similar offer but for better categories. Offers like this are one of the reasons this is the #1 rated store credit card.

I got this offer on travel:

Activate this offer now to earn 10% back in a statement credit**
(up to a total statement credit of $60 each month) when you spend $300 or more on eligible TRAVEL purchases each month and use your Sears Mastercard® from 10/1/19 – 1/31/20.

I’m in the process of booking a trip for next year with a travel agent. Think I’ll ask the travel agent if they can take monthly payments for the next few months.

i got the same. if you read the fine print, it seems to suggest travel agents count, and in general – if premier is any proof of MC MCC coding – the TA category is pretty broad. you might be able to even book some non travel stuff (like activities) through OTAs.

Citi seems to be hitting the store cards in October. I got a $30 back for $300 to spend and $10 back for $100 spend outside Best Buy on my Best Buy card

I got the clothing and dept store offer, a bit disappointing but still better than nothing, especially with the holidays coming.

I got the travel offer. Now time to book and cancel some southwest flights…

U will still have to use the southwest credits within a year though

Why wouldn’t you just cancel within 24 hours?

A refund would credit the account meaning no points earned.

Not all that difficult when you have kids. I booked 4 one ways at $150 each. That’s not a lot of credit per person to burn later.

Does anyone know if MPX app would code as travel on Citi? I know that got neutered for AMEX/Chase, … but not sure about Citi.

Still waiting for the previous two offers to post, anyone know how long it actually takes? Fine print says 2 billing cycles but I still haven’t seen the one from the end of June post yet. Maybe my purchases didn’t count?

I got the clothing and department stores one this time but don’t want to sink more spend into this if I’m going to keep having issues.

It posts 2 billing cycles after you complete the offer.

Update: The offer for July-Sept posted recently for me, but the one from May-June still never showed up. Guessing some of my purchases didn’t count.

Why Is there special treatment to Sear card?

aubergine
aubergine

because the card carries 27% interest and its user base tends to carry big ongoing balances. in the last recession Citi’s store card portfolio bled 13% chargeoffs vs. balances. it’s a risky biz but they’re trying to keep it going by keeping some better credits in the pool.

Is this just for the original Sears card or the Shop Your Way one as well?

Chris

All the cards can get these offers. I have the SYW version and got 10% on Dept. Stores and Clothing, but it seems pretty random. Sometimes people don’t get anything though.
