Sears $20 Promo Working on Reloads Too

Sears is currently offering a $20 eAward card for each $100 gift card purchased. See these previous posts where we covered the offer in detail:

Reloads

Reloads are earning the awards as well. I just got a $10 eAward for my $50 Sears gift card reload (image below) and a reader reported the same.

A little more convenient than dealing with multiple cards.

eAward Expiration

We noted that the eAward cards state that there is no expiration date. The new cards being sent out state the same. And they are showing their balance using the ordinary Sears balance checker.

A reader says that their card says contradictory things: it says no expiration but also says that it will expire on January 31. The card that I just got only has the no expiration part and does not have any mention of expiration.

sears eaward card no expiration

Seems very odd to me that some cards have an expiration and some don’t. Please check you eAwards and let us know in the comments what you see.

Update Regarding Expiration

A friend sent me a screenshot of their Sears eAward card which shows the expiration of January 31.

Offer Expires Soon

We have until December 25 to take advantage of this offer. I’m still hoping there will be a good portal increase soon, but it hasn’t happened in the past couple weeks. We’ll have to either use Shopathome for 6%, risk it with a mileage portal, or risk it with Discover. See all options here.

Which Card to Use

  • Use Discover, as noted in the previous posts.
  • Use a BofA card if you have a targeted Bank Amerideals offer for 10% off at Sears.
  • Use Citi Dividend. Readers report that last year it earned 5% on Sears purchases.
  • Use ATT for 3x.
  • Use Blue Cash Preferred for 3%.

How long does it take to get the Promo. I bought 10 $100 E-Gift cards last night at this time and have not received any Promo?

Did you do them all right in a row? Did you have to call in for a security check?

It’s still there. You just need to go to the gift card page to see it.

I see it now. They moved it to the top part, just need to scroll all the way to the end.
Btw, can we sell the $20 award card?

Do we earn 5% cashback on sears using discover card to purchase giftcards (it went to gcardmall) for other brand card?

My eAward card received on 18th has this term:
IMPORTANT: Your Sears eAward Card is valid for redemption through January 31, 2016.

Has anyone else received the eAward card with an expiration date? That would make the deal almost worthless to me.

Are you the same josh that wrote in the FM Lab that you received CB on Sears gc from Discover Deals in October? If so, have you had success recently?

Yes, that’s me. Discover Deals is very slow at reporting now. A couple weeks ago I got confirmation for a $50 reload in October using a Discover card. Actually, I got it twice for some reason. I only made one $50 reload and I got two $5 (10%) confirmation emails. The $5 posed twice on my statement last week too. Very odd, but it seems to be working.

My guess is Discover Deals is still working as before, just with longer hold times. This may be to weed out potential non-Discover card purchases.

Although I did just get a confirmation email from a Discover deals GC purchase at Last Call that I made with an Amex. Again, after a 6-week wait.

[…] Sears is currently running a promotion during which you can get a $20 eAward card for each separate $100 gift card purchase or reload. […]

I Bought mine on Dec15 and I still haven’t received my award card yet. Any ideas on what I should do?

I did the reloads on Dec 22 and didn’t get eAward, and I contacted them yesterday and got email that
reload didn’t qualify. The order confirmation email say it qualified.

Who did you contact? I tried last week and talked to a bunch of yahoos that didn’t know what they were talking about. I bought on Dec 18. They said I had to wait the full 10 working days
and then call back. They left me on hold for over 16 minutes.

I called the regular sears.com phone number. Not good.

Update: Physical gift card is shipped for the promotion eAward card.
